How Wei Qi Booster Enhances Pet Immunity
What is Wei Qi Booster?
Wei Qi Booster offers support in managing chronic ailments, persistent viral infections, and anemia.
Additionally, it plays a vital role in revitalizing the immune system following chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
By enhancing an animal's overall health condition, Wei Qi Booster also serves as a preventive measure against upper respiratory infections.
Understanding Wei Qi in Eastern Medicine
In instances of stress or advanced age, animals frequently encounter a decline in their immune function.
The weakening of the immune system often manifests through symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, weight loss, reduced appetite, chronic infections, and thyroid complications.
According to Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM), the "immune" or "host" defense system is referred to as "Defense Qi" or "Wei-Qi."
A robust Wei-Qi, or immune system, serves as a shield against pathogenic invasions like viruses and bacteria, signifying the animal's state of health.
TCVM practitioners emphasize the importance of the immune system itself over the focus on bacteria and viruses.
They recognize that while pathogens are omnipresent in the environment, they remain harmless unless the Wei-Qi (immune system) is inadequately equipped to counteract them.
However, when the Wei Qi weakens, it becomes susceptible to pathogenic invasion, leading to diseases and illnesses.
In TCVM, the inability of the immune system to function effectively is termed Wei Qi Deficiency.
Enhancing Your Pets Immunity Using Wei Qi Booster
Wei Qi Booster, from a Western Medical perspective, helps various conditions, including anemia, apathy, chronic arthritis, renal failure, fatigue, general weakness, chronic viral infections, FIV and FeLV in cats, hypothyroidism, post-chemotherapy, post-radiation therapy, immune system enhancement, poor appetite, and weight loss in senior animals.
In Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine, Wei Qi Booster addresses concerns like exercise intolerance, fatigue, general weakness, poor appetite, Qi and Blood deficiency, along with specific indicators such as a deep, weak pulse and a pale tongue.
It is crucial to note that Wei Qi Booster should not be administered in cases of Excess Heat, which might manifest as acute inflammation, infection, or high fever.
How Our Founding Veterinarians Use Wei Qi Booster for Immune Enhancement
Our founding veterinarians Dr. Marc Smith and Dr. Casey Damron use Wei Qi Booster often. They combine TCVM examination techniques with standard veterinary assessments to ascertain a comprehensive understanding of an animal's health.
Unlike Western medical philosophy, TCVM emphasizes balance and identifying the root cause of the issue, rather than merely alleviating symptoms with conventional medications.
Through a TCVM examination, vets can provide herbal blends that not only address the pet's symptoms but also rectify the underlying imbalances causing those symptoms.
However, Wei Qi Booster is just one among many TCVM herbal blends available for Dr. Smith and Dr. Damron to consider. The herbal formula best suited for each pet is contingent upon the results of the TCVM examination.
The Herbal Composition of Wei Qi Booster
Wei Qi Booster consists of a meticulously formulated blend of herbs, intended to alleviate symptoms of chronic illness and viral infections while simultaneously targeting their underlying causes.
The Chinese Principles of Treatment guiding Wei Qi Booster involve tonifying Qi, tonifying Blood, boosting Wei Qi, and inhibiting mutation.
Notable ingredients in Wei Qi Booster include Bai Hua She She Cao (Oldenlandia) and Ban Zhi Lian (Scutellaria), both working to inhibit cell mutation and tumor growth. Additionally, herbs like Dang Gui (Angelica), Dang Shen (Codonopsis), Huang Qi (Astragalus), Wu Yao (Lindera), and Xuan Shen (Scrophularia) serve specific roles in tonifying Qi, Blood, and Wei Qi, moving Qi, clearing stagnation, cooling blood, and nourishing Yin.
Chen Shi Wen et al. formulated the Wei Qi Booster formula in 1080 AD, drawing insights from the ancient Chinese text Si Jun Zi Tang from Tai Ping Hui Min He Ji Ju Fang (Imperial Grace Formulary of the Tia Ping Era).
Dr. Smith and Dr. Damron's clients have observed the tangible effects of Wei Qi Booster in bolstering immunity. They have also witnessed remarkable improvements in their pets' health conditions.
