Astragalus 8

From Ancient Wisdom To Modern Medicine
Chemist Direct

The herbs in Astragalus 8 have been used for centuries to help people strengthen their body’s defences and restore good health. Astragalus 8 is based on an ancient Chinese therapy called Fu Zheng Pei Ben. In Chinese medicine terms Fu Zheng means to rectify and support the normal, healthy vital energy (Qi) of all body systems, while Pei Ben means to strengthen the resistance mechanisms of the body especially those relating to healthy immune function.

The scientifically proven herb Astragalus is combined with seven other potent immune system herbs including Ganoderma (Reishi), Codonopsis, Atractylodes, Shisandra, Siberian ginseng, Ligustrum and Licorice to create this modern Chinese herbal medicine.

Astragalus 8 is used to assist with colds, coughs and flu (upper respiratory tract infections), chronic fatigue, and recurrent conditions such as sore throats.

For people recovering from illness, Astragalus 8 can be taken during convalescence. It is not recommended for acute infection – while the illness is upon you – rather, Oriental Botanicals® Bactevir® would be a better option, to be followed later with Astragalus 8, for recovery and immunity building.


This year I had intermittent colds, two bouts of pneumonia and a nasty cough that would never go away. I started taking Astragalus 8 at the tail end of the last bout of pneumonia-antibiotic treatment, and since then have been breathing better, chest congestion has gone, the cough has disappeared and generally feel ‘on the mend’. For two weeks I took 2 Astragalus 8 tablets twice a day, then one tablet twice a day for a week, and now in my fourth week have reduced to one tablet, once a day. In the first 2 weeks, I woke up twice with symptoms of a new cold (nasal congestion, sore throat), but thankfully, these symptoms were gone within 48 hours and never amounted to anything. Something good is going on!

Beth from Qld

During the end of last season I found myself coming down with the cold/flu. I had chills, sweats, headache, and extreme fatigue. With work in full swing, I couldn’t afford to take another day off. I decided to try both Bactevir and Viraforce. Taking doses during the day and before bed. Normally with this severity, I would be home for 2-3 days. However I woke up the next day feeling much better and able to go back into work.

Ben from NSW

To Whom It May Concern,
I have been using Bactevir during the past three years, usually when I can feel the symptoms beginning of a cold or flu. For me the signs are usually a sore throat, aching body or possibly a runny nose. I immediately commence taking the recommended dose of Bactevir and within 24hours I start to feel some relief. I generally keep taking the recommended dose for another week and by the end of the week all of my symptoms are gone.
I have tried many other natural remedies for cold and flu but this is the only one that is effective and works so quickly for me.
I would not hesitate to recommend this product to any person seeking symptom relief from colds or the flu.

Bruno F from NSW

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
On Monday night I had the pleasure of attending one of your training sessions which was an effort considering I had been sent home from work that day sick with the flu. I had been using sudafed for 2 days with no relief at all. As soon as I walked in the door Karen heard me speak and said we need to get you some Bactevir tablets. I took 3 tablets straight away and another 3 tablets when I got home from training and the results were nothing short of amazing. I was able to breathe through my nose again, my cough had cleared and I was free of the aches and pains I had been feeling for the last 2 days. So once again thank you, I guarantee that I will be keeping a supply of Bactevir tablets in my cupboard for the rest of the cold and flu season!

In TCM, a herbal formula called Cang Er Zi San has been in traditional use for hundreds of years to help manage mild sinusitis and relieve its symptoms. Consisting of xanthium fruit, magnolia flower, white angelica root and Asian wild mint leaves, Cang Er Zi San is traditionally taken in TCM to help the sinus passages feel clearer and relieve mild sinusitis symptoms such as mucous congestion and headache.

Oriental Botanicals SinuClear combines the herbs in Cang Er Zi San with houttuynia, which is traditionally regarded as having anti-infective properties in TCM.

Read on to discover more about each of the ingredients in SinuClear and their traditional uses in Chinese medicine.


Xanthium is traditionally used in TCM to help clear the congested sinuses and stuffed up nasal passages of mild sinusitis, as well as to relieve associated headaches. It’s also traditionally regarded as having the ability to soothe inflamed and irritated sinus mucous membranes in TCM.

Magnolia flower

In TCM, magnolia floweris traditionally regarded as having decongestant and anti-infective effects and is taken to help relieve the runny nose that sometimes occurs in mild sinusitis. Thanks to its decongestant properties, it may also be beneficial for runny nasal discharges and sneezing caused by hayfever, based on its traditional use in Chinese medicine.

White angelica

In TCM, white angelica is traditionally used to help open up the nose and sinuses, soothe mucous membrane inflammation and relieve mild sinusitis symptoms such as pain, pressure and headaches. Like magnolia flower, white angelica is traditionally used as a herbal decongestant in TCM, and is additionally regarded as having anti-infective properties.

Asian wild mint

Asian wild minthelps relieve headaches associated with mild sinusitis and clear the eyes and head, based on its traditional use in TCM.


In Oriental Botanicals SinuClear, the herbs above are accompanied by houttuynia, which is traditionally regarded as having anti-infective and anti-inflammatory properties in TCM, as well as the ability to stimulate the immune system.


I have been taking Sinuclear after waking up with congested painful sinuses – I took 3 caps as soon as I got them, 3 caps again that night and 3 caps the following morning. I was out all the next day and forgot to take them with me but took another 3 before bed & woke up with a clearer head and I could feel it improving throughout the day. I will continue to take 2 tabs twice today to ensure my sinuses are completely clear. So pretty much back to normal with one-2 days!!

It also provides trophorestorative (tonic) action on the lungs to assist with recuperation.


I have been using this product for 6 months now and I can’t believe how good I feel. I have suffered with chest complaints all my life (I’m 61). My lungs feel so much lighter, the constant mucus and coughing has almost disappeared, I’m just amazed. All chest complaint sufferers need to know about this product. Yes it’s not cheap but it is so worth it.

A Fantastic Product That Really Works

  • I am a 51 y/o man who is a very nervous & anxious person by nature.

Review Of Online Medical Supplies Stores and Chemists.

medical supplies stores

Online medical supplies stores /Pharmacies and Chemists are becoming ever more popular these days.

March 2020 Ibis World Report stated Online Pharmaceutical Industry trends show only a 2.1% increase sales from 2012 to 2019. Significant changes across the wider pharmaceuticals sector have strongly affected the Online Pharmaceutical Sales industry’s performance over the past five years. The Pharmaceutical Industry is heavily regulated by the FDA.

However, since the world pandemic of the Corona Virus, sale for online pharmacies in Australia have increased exponentially.

Business Insider Australia in March 2020, suggested for those with chronic illness and the aged, call in for the prescription to be filled or do so online. If you or a loved one can’t pick it up, ask the pharmacy about home-delivery options.  Next, be sure to store your extra meds carefully, Jacobson(Professor of Health Sciences at University of Michigan) said.

In my regional town in Australia . Wizard Pharmacy have graciously given my family the extra services because one family member who has Downs needs to have his heart and diabetes medications as a life saving necessity.

At the time when Corona Virus restrictions came into our area we had at least 90 days supply in the cupboard. That will be the norm now. I can ring anytime or orders on line. The Chemist Assistant comes out to my car and drops the parcel on the passenger seat whilst at the same time keeping social distances regulations. I am a full time carer and keep a lot prescribed drugs in the home at all time. From now on all orders for medications will be done online.

Doctors, nurses, caregivers and health conscious people all enjoy shopping for their medical supplies stores online. For Eg:- Digital thermometers, used for taking an individual’s oral temperature are one of the most frequently sold medical devices.

There are many large businesses that sell medical supplies stores online. Ultimately, it is important to go with a company that best fits your own personal needs. You may decide to go with a company because of the particular products they offer.

If professional health care workers use online services then why aren’t we shopping online for family medical supplies and scripts?

When you shop for medical supplies offline, then the choices can become limited.

Medical Supplies Stores

However, when you plan to buy online, then there is no limit. There are literally over a million stores from where you can purchase your required products. The problem is that when you have so many choices in front of you, it becomes really hard to decide which store you should choose.

All of them claim to served our community and delivered quality products at competitive prices with exceptional customer satisfaction. Just as any other online store, when you purchase medical supplies online, you have to be careful, because you don’t want to end up giving your money to a low-class store.

You have to do your research before choosing an online company. For example, after you visit a site, you need to first answer this question: Can I trust this website? Then you need to check and see what security measures they have utilized to ensure that you pay safely.

You need to also evaluate and compare products and prices. Is one store more expensive than the other? If yes, then why? You need to also determine how much they will charge you for shipping the products. This will also add up to the initial product cost and you will be able to decide which website you should use, because some companies offer free shipping too.

Let’s accept it, everyone enjoys a good deal and there is cost-effective way to do just that.

However, while an understandable benefit may be simply receiving the products you need at a seriously competitive price, money-saving can also be challenging in buy online you might not always get what you think you’re paying for. With this in mind, let’s look at more of the benefits of going online to find the best supplies at the best prices.

Save Money

While it isn’t always practical to cut back on expenses day to day costs a busy household, one basic part when you can cut back is medical supplies stores.

The good news is that there are some attractive deals to be had even from leading medical equipment online, and this is something you should take benefit of.

Many companies offering medical supplies online give you the option to buy wholesale, and buying in bulk can be a great way of receiving the products you need at a fraction of the cost. The following online services  can be seriously beneficial, exclusively if you go through a lot of disposable products like hand towels, gloves, cups, sponges, gauze, syringe tips and headrest covers.

While some reasonably like the concept of dealing face to face with a supplier or chemist, ordering from medical supplies stores on line means that you either have to take the phone and place an order during normal business hours; or wait in a long line at the chemist, and then spend times explaining usually to a new staff member complex medications protocol and administration. This happens often when a family member has a disability or chronic illness. Either way, the unfortunate fact is that this method is becoming obsolete and takes time out of your busy day.

Equally, when you purchase medical supplies from a trusted supplier online you can take time to browse through a digital catalogue and place an order at a time that suits you. Whether that’s on a weekend or when you have a spare time in between patients. It’s easy, appropriate, and doesn’t take a chunk of time specifically dedicated to attending the chemist.

Get everything at one single spot

Instead of having to order a variety of products from different vendors, you can get all your dental supplies online in one place, saving you a small fortune on shipping costs.

If your find out that the company has been run for 30 years online then its highly likely they are good suppliers. I will follow up with review later in this article.

Will often find that online family companies place rigorous emphasis on personal customer care and quality relationships with shoppers. This often means that customers get quick and helpful email responses, immediate access to customer care on the phone, quality product packaging, and speedy delivery. You may consider three Australian companies if you are looking for a family-owned medical supply web store that offers name brand home and medical care products with friendly and knowledgeable customer care, low prices, and fast shipping.

All the following medical supplies stores for home care you can buy. Please read my article on what medical supplies to keep in your home for family needs.

Buying Medicines online needs to be done with caution. Up until 2 weeks ago all review for 3 Australian online chemist supplies mentioned had good reviews. Now I see some unhappy customers putting in complaints. But there is a warning on their web sites that deliveries will; be delayed during this time as the Corona Virus poses as a threat.

The Australian Government gives this warning;

How can I safely buy medicines online?

Follow these four steps:

  1. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before buying medicines online.
  2. If you want to buy medicines online, buy them from a company based in Australia.
  3. Read Reviews on the companies by simply Googling their name.
  4. Investigate the company thoroughly.
  5. If you’re thinking of buying from overseas, check the Office of Drug Control’s list of drugs and ingredients that can’t be imported into Australia unless you have permission.
  6. Be wary of wild claims — if a therapeutic product or a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

A final note: currently the pharmacies online in Australia are experiencing lengthy delays. Up until recently these companies had good reviews. The supply chain is interrupted or in some cases broken.

Respiratory Equipment Used to Treat Respiratory Conditions at Home.   (Always Seek Medical Advice)

I have had exposure on how to take away the wheeze. I have been an asthmatic for 40 years.

I have had first hand experience using nebulisers and other devices at home and on the road. Always seek medical advice first.

How To Take Away the Wheeze

There are a number of brands available (in Australia) that produce respirators and nebuliser for the treatment of lung conditions at home. Which one is right for you? You can work with your doctor or respiratory therapist to decide what features in a nebuliser you may want or need.

Although portable respiration therapy devices perform a similar function to the more sophisticated equipment available in healthcare facilities, these models are especially designed for use at home or while traveling. Some require a power outlet, while others use rechargeable batteries. These devices should only be used under the advice and supervision of a licensed healthcare professional. Important factors to consider include battery life (where applicable), flow rate, sterilization requirements, and ease of use. Along with the home first aid kit, a nebuliser is a must for chronic asthmatics.

These brands are available in Australia;

  • Able
  • Allersearch
  • MedeScan
  • Omron
  • Philips Respironics

These are available at these online suppliers. You may experience delay in your order being delivered;



When nebulizers and inhalers were introduced to the world during the 1930s and 1950s, respectively, this was exactly the gift people with lung diseases, like asthma, yearned for since the beginning of time. This meant they now had an easy means of inhaling the medicine needed to control and treat their disease.

Nebulizers were invented first, and were certainly appreciated, but they were not made for mobile use.

So when inhalers were introduced, they quickly became the top choice for those who needed respiratory medicine. But even inhalers had their limitations. There are advantages and disadvantages of the preferable inhaler. We investigate the same for nebulizers.

How does the Nebuliser work?

In order to get relief from COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pathways Disorder), asthma, or any other respiratory ailment, getting medication into the lungs as quick as possible is the best way to expedite relief.

Rescue inhalers and MDIs (Metered Dose Inhalers) are ways to get medication into the lungs during an asthma attack, but some medications require the use of a nebulizer.

A nebulizer transforms liquid medication into a fine mist aerosol that is easily inhaled into the lungs through the use of a mouthpiece or mask. This does not require the inhalation coordination of an MDI.

All you need to do was breathe normally and medication is on its way to doing its job.

Advantages and Disadvantages.

The advantages of nebulizers:

  • Allows for immediate application of medicine to airways and ideal for asthma. The device allows for medicine to be absorbed as it is administered over a longer period of time. If the lungs are congested then the nebuliser is a more thorough method of drug administration. As the patient starts to breath normally more medicine is absorbed as the lungs clear. A puffer administers the medicine in a short sharp burst.
  • Relatively easy to use, and quite easy to coordinate (just breathe normal).
  • Easy to inhale the medicine, regardless of airflow limitation caused by flare-ups and end stages of COPD.
  • Nebulisers and air compressors last a long time for repeat application if well maintain. I have had my nebuliser longer than when the superseded model came on the market.
  • The Nebuliser is a good household investment particularly with children. Sometimes the equipment may only be used for a season and can be used for other family members if similar illness exist.

The disadvantage of nebulisers: 

  • Most air compressors require electric source.
  • Some nebuliser are loud and it disturbs the patient particularly if they are a child.
  • Most affordable nebulisers are not easily portable.
  • Nebulisers are expensive however the price is coming down over time. Usually over $100.
  • Nebuliser treatments generally take about 10-20 minutes, posing a challenge in today’s fast-paced society.
    For most folks who require respiratory medicine, inhalers work just great. For those who would benefit, nebulisers offer a viable alternative. If you think one or the other would benefit you, please consult your physician.

First Aid KIt

First aid is the provision of care to the ill and injured to preserve life until definitive medical care can be delivered. So, when it gets right down to it all of first aid is dealing with the immediate emergency.

The purpose of providing First Aid is to;

  1. Ensure your own safety. Never go into the water to save a drowning person. If the shooting is still going on make sure you are under cover. You cannot help anyone if you are killed. Likewise, becoming a second casualty makes the saving of both of you twice as hard.
  2. Clear Airways.  Most people who die quickly do so for lack of a patent airway. If the patient is chemically impaired and breathing turn them on their side so secretions can flow from their mouth. Likewise for people who just suffered a seizure. There is NO NEED to pry a seizure victims’ mouth open with a spoon or your fingers. Wait until the seizure passes and turn them on their side. Don’t get your finger bitten off. Refer to point 1 above!
  3. Breathing and CPR. If the patient is not breathing refer to point 2 above. Many times it is because their airway is occluded with their tongue. Thrusting their jaw forward with gentle pressure is typically enough to open them again. Current CPR standards don’t really support rescue breathing all that much anymore. It’s has come down to compression only CPR. If the airway is occluded due to choking you will need to remove the foreign material using the Heimlich maneuver or removing it from their mouth if you can see it.
  4. Circulation. You have to know where to check a pulse and I recommend the carotid artery because it’s right where you will be checking the airway anyway at neck. No pulse? It’s CPR time. Compress the sternum 1.5–2 inches at a rate that matches the timeless Bee Gees song “Staying Alive”. If there is an AED…. Retrieve it. Read the instructions and hopefully a “shock” will be indicated. Out of hospital full arrests survive only about 10% of the time. Remember…. They are already technically dead so you cannot hurt them. Do what you have to do.
  5. Disability. Bleeding is controlled by direct pressure. If it’s oozing a little pressure will do. If it’s spurting? More pressure will be required. Use anything clean and preferably cloth-like to put over open wounds and apply enough pressure to stop the bleeding. Forget tourniquets. I’ve never had to use one even with amputations. If a limb really hurts… it may be broken. Try to immobilize it any way feasible. Securing to the body works really well actually. Use strips of cloth to do so. If you have anything rigid use it. I’ve even seen a rolled up magazine used to immobilize a wrist fracture. It worked very well. Just don’t strap in a possibly fractured limb too tightly.
  6. Comfort. If all else fails… be nice. Reassurance is the best medicine of all. There is a LOT of fear involved in these events. Check your own pulse. Be calm and exude that calm. That is the very best and most rare thing in any emergency.

None of this is in any way a substitute for a real first aid class. There are never enough trained first responders. Become one and really make a difference. Saving a life will transform your own.

Picture of the Sinuses include;

  • Your cheekbones hold your maxillary sinuses (the largest).
  • The low-center of your forehead is where your frontal sinuses are located.
  • Between your eyes are your ethmoid sinuses.
  • In bones behind your nose are your sphenoid sinuses.

The paranasal sinuses are air-filled extensions of the respiratory part of the nasal cavity. There are four paired sinuses, named according to the bone in which they are located; maxillary, frontal, sphenoid and ethmoid. The function of the sinuses is not clear. It is thought that they may contribute to the  humidifying  of the inspired air.

Symptoms of Sinus Infections include;

  • Blocked nose, causing discomfort
  • Thick nasal discharge
  • General irritation of nasal breathing
  • Headache pain (the expressions “pressure migraine” or “stuffy head” might be utilized)
  • The ears may likewise feel blocked, and might be painful , or hearing might be contorted

  • Numerous individuals who are influenced by sinusitis likewise experience asthma


The sinuses and nasal entries are air-filled and contain light bodily fluid, which is created by the body to trap breathed in particles and dust. The bodily fluid is pushed out through little openings that fill in as waste entries to the rear of the nose and throat. The bodily fluid is then swallowed.

Anything that causes the mucous films covering the sinuses to expand may prompt disease by inhibiting the body’s way of emptying particles and dust from the body.

For instance, one basic reason for sinusitis is an upper respiratory tract contamination, for example, the basic virus. The sinusitis might be because of the cool air, or might be an auxiliary bacterial contamination that creates as an outcome of the trapped particle or bacteria. Thin seepage entries from the sinuses, a digressed septum and polyps or tumors can likewise deter waste from the sinuses.

Nasal blockage because of different variables (for example sensitivity) likewise expands vulnerability to bacterial sinus contamination.

Aggravation of the sinuses likewise causes an increase in nasal discharge. For instance, a few people experience sinusitis as an outcome of being around smoke, dust parasites or other breathed in aggravations.

Different variables that may add to sinusitis include fever, food sensitivity, and dental hygiene.

Diet and way of life – Reduce Symptoms of Sinus Infection

Sinus infections can be painful and if pain persists professional medical advice should be sought.

Improved waste and brisk control of any disease present are the fundamental points of treatment. To help channel bodily fluid a course of salt-water nasal drops or shower might be valuable.

The utilization of a humidifier is prescribed for a thin nasal discharge and cough. On the other hand, fill your bathroom sink with heated water, and afterward take in the steam while leaning over the sink with a towel over your head to shield the steam from getting away. Be mindful so as not to put your face into or near hot water

Eat heaps of plant based products, especially that boost nutrient C and bioflavonoids, for example, citrus, capsicum and pineapple. Simultaneously, it is recommended patients with sinusitis keep away from dairy nourishment as they accept they increment the body’s bodily fluid creation.

Drink lots of fluids – filtered water, vegetable and natural product juices, soups and home grown teas.

Tobacco smoke and other breathed in aggravations may add to sinus issues. Smokers ought to consider taking a nutrient C supplement to diminish the impacts of the smoke on the resistant framework.

Anti-toxins are regularly endorsed for bacterial sinus diseases, however may upset the well disposed microorganisms that live in the gut. Taking a probiotic supplement containing Lactobacillus reuteri serves to rebalance the gastrointestinal greenery after anti-infection use.

Rest in an all around ventilated room that is spotless and liberated from potential allergens, for example, pet hair, dust bugs, quills and shape. Uncommon low-sensitivity bedding and cleaning items may should be utilized.

Customer Focus

The company was increasing China business through increased engagement with the cross border e-commerce platforms and establishing stronger connections with our customers in China.  With the outbreak of the virus in 2020 I do believe the company will be rethinking its strategies towards customer focus.

The Chinese strategy was delivering higher margins than sales to customers through domestic Australian retailers. While some companies fear regulatory change both in Australia and abroad, Blackmores approach is to embrace it. Time will tell how this will continue in the near future.
