ARTHRITIS = JOINT HEALTH (60 CAPSULES)

 

Inflammation is essentially a protective response intended to eliminate the initial cause of cell injury (microbes, toxins).

 

The inflammatory response dilutes, neutralizes and removes the insulting agent, setting in motion the process of tissue repair.

 

This process can be categorized as either acute or chronic arthritis depending on the time frame and the immune cells involved.

 

Chronic inflammation, on the other hand, is characterised by an accumulation of lymphocytes and monocytes and is associated with vascular proliferation and fibrosis (loss of mobility and deformed joints).

CYSTITIS/URINARY INFECTIONS = BUCHU UTI RELIEF (20 CAPSULES)

 

The flow of urine is ultimately responsible for flushing out any potential bacterial which may attempt to attach themselves to the surfaces of our urinary tract.

 

Women are most prone to cystitis due to the short distance between the entrance to the sexual organ and the anus, the site of these bacteria.

 

If these bacteria enter the urinary tract they may cause a local inflammatory response at the site where they find themselves.

 

For instance, if they find themselves in the bladder, this condition is called cystitis which produces a burning sensation when urinating and a constant urge to urinate.

 

If the infection moves further up the urinary system to the kidneys, this causes an infection in the kidney tissue called nephritis.

 

This condition is more serious since it is more difficult to reach the infected tissues with antibiotics as well as the fact that most drugs used are metabolised in the liver and by the time the products reach the kidneys, the drug is no longer active.

 

Bacteria derived from the stools are generally responsible for causing the infections but some parasites (and even viruses) may also be causative agents.

 

The infection leads to an inflamed area and ultimately pain and swelling.

FIBROSITIS = JOINT HEALTH (60 CAPSULES)

 

Fibrositis is a non-specific inflammation of the muscle fibres leading to constant pain and muscle weakness.


This condition is referred to as an auto-immune condition, where the immune system of the patient is ultimately responsible for the damage to the tissue or organ.


To date, there are no agents which can be highlighted as the causative trigger but the underlying pathology involved is a chronic inflammatory tissue damaging process.

GOUT = BUCHU PAIN RELIEF (20 CAPSULES)

 

Gout is a non-specific inflammation of the muscle fibres leading to constant pain and muscle weakness.


This condition is referred to as an auto-immune condition, where the immune system of the patient is ultimately responsible for the damage to the tissue or organ.


To date, there are no agents which can be highlighted as the causative trigger but the underlying pathology involved is a chronic inflammatory tissue damaging process.

HAEMORRHOIDS = BUCHU GEL

 

This condition is a painful inflamed lining of the sensitive mucosa surrounding the anus or may even be internal to the entrance to the anus. Certain foods (e.g. spices/excessive intake of caffeine) or stress may trigger such crises.


The mucosa affected becomes swollen and inflamed and may even lead to overt bleeding due to the rupturing of the thin membrane.


The general concept is that individuals who present with haemorrhoids are prone to digestive upsets and inflammation of the digestive tract including the anal mucosal surfaces.

HYPERTENSION = BUCHU HERBAL WATER

 

Hypertension is an increase in blood pressure brought about by the inability of the kidneys to control pressure by regulating excretion of fluids.


This condition usually develops when the person's kidney output decreases and the person begins to retain water instead of excreting the excess water as urine.


The kidney is ultimately responsible for maintaining a constant pressure by simply adjusting the amount of water excreted (as urine) or absorbed when our tissues require more (hence dehydration results in less urine output).


The cause of the decreased urine output may be chronic kidney infections (chronic inflammation leads to the damage to the filtration apparatus of the kidney) or a decrease in the blood flow to the kidneys (possibly linked to the heart not pumping efficiently, etc).


Most clinicians control hypertension by prescribing drugs which stimulate the kidneys to excrete more urine (so-called water tablets) and ultimately have their patients checked for their cardiac integrity.

INFECTION = BUCHU GEL

 

The general term used to describe the ability of any product to either kill or prevent the replication of an infectious agent is ‘anti-infective’. If the product targets bacteria specifically, then such products are called antibiotics whereas if the agent is a fungus, then it is referred to as an antifungal.


Similarly, any product active against a specific virus would be called an anti-viral agent.


The most commonly used drugs used are antibiotics which target the bacteria and either kill them or prevent them from multiplying.
There is concern is that the abuse of such drugs has made many bacteria resistant to antiobiotics, resulting in the so-called "super bugs" that do not respond to registered drugs.

PROSTATITIS = JOINT HEALTH (60 CAPSULES)

 

Prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate gland.


Prostatitis is diagnosed in 8% of all urologist and 1% of all primary care physician visits in the united States.


The term prostatitis refers to histological (microscopic) inflammation of the tissue of the prostate gland. Like all forms of inflammation, it can be associated with an appropriate response of the body to an infection (which could potentially be treated with antibiotics), but it can
also occur in the absence of infection.

PSORIASIS = BUCHU HERBAL WATER, GEL AND PAIN RELIEF (20 CAPSULE)

 

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory condition of the skin and a noticeable thickening of the upper layers of the affected area.


The current knowledge of this condition is that certain bacteria are initially responsible for triggering the immune response at the site of infection but that due to an uncontrolled and ongoing response, the skin cells are induced to respond by laying down thick layers of keratin.

 

It appears that the immune response to the bacteria is inefficient and that the signals released by the immune cells perpetuates the vicious cycle of damage and repair by the epithelium, upper layer of the skin.
