How to protect your teeth from common oral illnesses
Sports medicine is no longer limited to the elite.
In the United States, a Chinese herbal medicine is gaining momentum as an alternative to oral care and has been shown to reduce dental caries, prevent tooth decay and even relieve arthritis symptoms.
The China-based company is also looking to expand into new areas, including the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a lung disease that has affected millions of Americans.
The company has already received a patent for its “Chewy’s” mouthwash for use in COPD patients.
In a recent trial, patients were given 1,000 mg of the “Cookie Killer” for four weeks.
The researchers say that, after eight weeks, “coughing, coughing and wheezing had disappeared”.
Dr Paul Gilder, chief medical officer for the company, said the “cognitive impact of this product” was that it reduced the risk of CPT, the disease that causes chronic obstructions in the lungs.
The team, which is based in California, says it is also treating patients with COPD.
In their latest trial, the company showed patients that it did not make them cough or wheeze.
But Dr Gilders claims that the product also has the potential to treat patients with CPT that are also suffering from COPD, which has caused an estimated 50 million US deaths over the last five years.
Dr Gildernes study is part of a wider project to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of “Coughy’s”, which has been widely hailed by Chinese health authorities.
Dr Yiyu Zhang, a co-author of the Cochrane review, said that Chinese herbal products such as the “cookie killer” could have an impact on the disease rate in the country.
“There are several important differences between this study and previous ones,” Dr Zhang said.
“First, it has a very small sample size, which makes the results less robust than in studies of other herbal products.
Second, there is a very limited amount of data available from this trial, which means that the overall conclusions can be questioned.
The study found that the “cookies” were effective in reducing the rate of CCT and that the use of this medication was associated with reduced risk of relapse in the study participants.
However, Dr Zhang cautioned that it was premature to conclude that the Chinese herbal treatment would be safe and effective.
She said the Chinese medicine could have a wide range of uses and could be used to treat a wide variety of chronic diseases.”
Some people may use it for coughs, wheezes, constipation and other respiratory conditions,” she said.”
Others may use the herbal tea to help with allergies or asthma, or even for managing other common illnesses.””
In addition, this herbal tea has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries, so it has potential for use as an anti-cancer treatment.
“However, there are also risks associated with using this product, which include allergic reactions, constriction of the airways, and even death from COPd.”
