Hua Zhi Ling Wan
More or more people are turning to Chinese herbal medicines to cure minor ailments, rather than conventional medicines. They date back centuries and are made of sulphur-free herbs with no added pharmaceuticals, preservatives or colouring and are completely natural.
In the West people view their bodies as a machine with the heart as the pump, the bladder and kidneys as the plumbing, the brain as the computer, the joints as the hinges which become rusty with age and so on.
Western doctors are trained to repair the machine so their thinking is mostly reactive. They wait for a problem to occur then try to cure it, they see the disease as an attacking force which must be destroyed, usually by anti-biotics or if it is a tumour they cut it out.
Traditional Chinese medicine looks at sickness from another perspective, they look for a breakthrough cure for every problem. A "magic" pill or procedure which will repair the body and restore it to working order.
Herbal medicines are the foundations of Chinese healing and healthcare and have been used for thousands of years. Chinese herbal medicines avoid many of the nasty side-effects produced by Western pharmaceuticals, especially the sledge-hammer drugsm they are gentle and offer a slow and steady rate of improvement.
One of the best-known manufacturers of Chinese herbal formulas is Plum Flower and they have a herbal remedy specifically made for people suffering from haemorrhoids (piles).
Hua Zhi Ling Wan, commonly known as Fargelin, helps support the body during times of pain and rectal swelling from haemorrhoids and prolapse.
The pills clear damp-heat from the intestines, clears the blood, stops bleeding, invigorates the blood and alleviates pain. They are GMP certified, heavy metal tested and contain no pharmaceuticals, preservatives or colouring.
Fargelin pills contain
- Punica Granatum Rind which is an astringent
- Cycluba Sinesis Shell which softens hardness and dissipates nodules
- Panax notoginsengs root for adapotgen
- Coptis Chinesis Rhizome which clears heat and stops bleeding
- Succunum Resin which reduces swelling and promotes healing
- Susscrofa Domestica Bile which reduces inflammation
The use of clam shells breaks up the masses and Tian Qui stops the bleeding so the combination of the two together greatly eases the complications from haemorrhoids.
Sufferers are recommended to take 4-6 pills three times a day half-an-hour before or one hour after eating a meal. In acute or severe disorders the dose can be 6 pills every 2-4 hours with the dosage being reduced as the treatment begins to take effect.
The pills are available from any health shop or shop where they sell Chinese medicines, and the price ranges from store to store, but an average price is $12.40 for 200 pills.
