Why Use an Immune Booster for Cats?
It rebuilds your cat’s general health and prevents upper respiratory infections.
How Wei Qi Booster Works
Wei Qi Booster also rebuilds a cat’s immune system after chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
When cats experience stress or aging, they often develop weak immune systems.
A weak immune system causes fatigue, muscle weakness, weight loss, decreased appetite, chronic infections, and thyroid issues.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the name for the “immune” or “host” defense system is “Defense Qi” or “Wei-Qi.”
In a healthy cat, the Wei-Qi (immune system) is strong enough to prevent invasion by pathogens (like viruses and bacteria).
Eastern medicine places more emphasis on the immune system than bacteria and viruses.
The reason is pathogens are always present in the environment, and cannot harm the animal if the Wei-Qi (immune system) is strong enough to defeat them.
Unfortunately, as soon as the Wei Qi weakens, pathogens can enter the body and cause disease and illness.
In TCVM, “Wei Qi Deficiency” is the name for the failure of the immune system to do its job.
Wei Qi Booster: Western Medicine Applications
Wei Qi Booster is a TCVM blend of eight different herbs.
Even though Wei Qi Booster is a TCVM herbal blend, it still helps symptoms of some Western diagnoses.
Wei Qi Booster helps cats with the following Western diagnoses and medical situations:
- Chronic arthritis
- Renal failure
- General weakness
- Chronic viral infections
- Post-radiation therapy
- Compromised immune system
- Poor appetite
- Weight loss in senior animals
Wei Qi Booster: Eastern Medicine Applications
Eastern medicine treats a disease’s root cause(s) rather than symptoms.
Accordingly, TCVM vets a cat’s overall health and immune system differently than Western veterinarians.
TCVM vets look for signs of imbalance.
Wei Qi Booster helps cats with the following TCVM signs:
- Exercise intolerance
- General weakness
- Poor appetite
- Qi and Blood deficiency
- Deep, weak pulse
- Pale tongue
Note: Do not use Wei Qi Booster with Excess Heat. Excess Heat includes acute inflammation, infection, or a high fever.
