Unless you are a nutritionist it is hard to know what is good for you and what isn’t. Guides and articles contradict each other all of the time. One post says a supplement is good for you while another says that it is not. Due to the massive contradictions found in online learning resources changing one’s diet and living more healthily can be extremely difficult. One particular supplement that is a cornerstone of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) called Qing Dai is often misunderstood.
This post will tell you everything you need to know about it so you can benefit from incorporating it into your diet:
Before you can safely take any supplement you need to educate yourself about the risks and potential side effects. As far as treatments go, Qing Dai has far fewer side effects and risks than other supplements and herbs used in TCM.
Most people report little to no Qing Dai side effects although some have been recorded. Educating yourself about these side effects can make it easier for you to determine whether or not you are having a normal reaction to the drug after ingestion. Most symptoms can be managed at home without help. Obviously, any allergy symptoms should be dealt with by a doctor, not independently.
While side effects of the herb are uncommon some have reported experiencing abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and headaches. If you experience any of these after taking the drug then you do not need to worry unless your symptoms are severe. Symptoms of allergy should of course be dealt with by a doctor immediately. While Qing Dai is not a known allergen, allergic reactions to it are of course not impossible. Consider getting patch tested before use to determine whether or not allergies are present.
Chron’s disease affects the lives of millions of people around the world. People die from this nasty disease on a very regular basis; in terms of daily symptoms, Chron’s can cause a lot of discomfort. Individuals suffering from the disease typically experience abdominal cramping, diarrhoea and many other unwanted symptoms. For a number of years now Qing Dai has been studied as a treatment for the disease. Some studies indicate that it is actually highly effective and can indeed be used; others suggest that it can work as an accompanying treatment but should not be relied on 100%.
Individuals interested in using Qing Dai to treat their Chron’s disease or any inflammatory bowel condition should consult their physician first. While it is unknown whether or not Qing Dai interacts with any of the drugs used to treat Chron’s it is of course still a good idea to speak to your doctor and ask them whether they think it is a good idea for you to begin taking it or not. If they say that they do not then you should respect their decision although by all means get a second opinion if you think your doctor’s judgment was not carefully thought through.
Inflammation has been identified as the cause of many of the world’s most fatal and untreatable diseases. Chronic inflammation can give way to things like cancer, heart disease and even diabetes. Unless you take immediate action upon noticing inflammation you could go on to develop the conditions just mentioned. Qing Dai is in no way the most effective anti-inflammatory around but when taken in combination with a healthy diet and lifestyle, inflammation will instantly become a thing of the past. Users of this drug seldom experience inflammation as long as they live otherwise healthy lifestyles.
Another popular herbal treatment for inflammation is CBD or cannabidiol. CBD is a chemical found in the Cannabis plant, along with THC, the drug’s psychoactive component. No interactions have been recorded between CBD and Qing Dai which means you can take both of these at the same time. Taking them both together can be a highly effective way to counter and prevent inflammation. It should be noted that Qing Dai mainly acts as an anti-inflammatory for the gut, however, it can also fight inflammation in other areas of the body too. CBD is a more general anti-inflammatory and can counter inflammation all over the body.
In all truth, it doesn’t matter what herbs or alternative medicines you are taking to treat health problems; if you do not live a healthy lifestyle your issues will end up getting worse. You need to make a concerted effort to try and improve your health. Do not make the mistake of thinking that you can eat and drink anything as long as you take Qing Dai. Taking herbs does not do anything if you are ingesting poison like junk food on a daily basis.
You can quite easily change your lifestyle and begin living more healthily by incorporating more fruit and vegetables into your diet and reducing your reliance on animal-derived foods. There was a myth circulating for some time that an organic, vegetarian lifestyle was not sustainable and that animal foods needed to be consumed to live healthily. Studies have now shown that plant-based diets are a lot better for people than animal-based ones. Fish is also very healthy and does not come with as many risks as meat does.
Diet isn’t the only thing you need to think about if you want to begin living a healthier lifestyle; you also need to focus on exercising more. A lot of people spend their days in states of complete stagnation, never going out or doing anything. Sitting around all day might be fun but it wreaks havoc on your body. If you are not an especially active person then begin exercising more and consider going to the gym. The gym can be a great place to turn as it will give you the chance to learn more about fitness, make friends and focus on improving yourself internally and externally.
Living healthily isn’t achievable through herbs alone; you also need to make an effort to improve your life in other ways too. While Qing Dai can be a great way to improve health other steps should be taken. Before taking the supplement make sure you do your research about it and ensure it is right for you. Taking anything you are not confident about is a bad idea. A physician will be able to help you decide whether Qing Dai is right for you or not so reach out to yours.
