How To Understand The Medicine Toxic Effect In Traditional Chinese Medicine

2018-08-22 11:07

How to understand the traditional Chinese medicine saying ” Any medicine will have some toxic effect

To many patients we often say that any medicine will have some toxic effect, but this kind of toxic effect is commonly understood to mean that taking medicine can cure diseases as well as hurt people. But do you know what traditional Chinese medicine understands to mean by any medicine will have some toxic effect ?

People often say that any medicine will have some toxic effect, and that non-toxic and non – medicated. Traditional Chinese medicine has always respected the theory of ” attacking poison with poison”. Toxic traditional Chinese medicines often have unique curative effects, and their toxic components are their pharmacodynamic components. For some special diseases, the more toxic the drugs are, the more effective they are. As long as it is administered at a safe dose under the guidance of a doctor, it will not cause toxic reactions. It should be understood that taking medicine is not likely to have no risk at all. No matter traditional Chinese medicine or western medicine, among all drugs approved for sale, there is no one hundred percent safe drugs.

So what is the ” toxin” that is brought with the drugs?

1. some traditional Chinese medicines contain natural toxins. Many traditional Chinese medicines containing natural toxins are processed by heating to remove some of their toxicity. If they are processed too much, their efficacy will be completely lost. If the heating is insufficient, the toxin will remain. For example, the ” Tussilago farfara” for treating cough and bronchitis contains carcinogens in flowers, leaves and roots. After taking a large amount of Tussilago farfara for a long time, liver cancer will occur.

2. some traditional Chinese medicines contain excessive heavy metals. Heavy metals such as lead, arsenic and mercury in traditional Chinese medicines come from polluted soil and will damage nerves, kidneys and other organs after long-term administration.

3. teratogenic effect. Many ingredients of traditional Chinese medicine are still unknown. In order to avoid teratogenic effects, pregnant women should refrain from using traditional Chinese medicine.

4. immune injury.
