    Whether you do martial arts or not there are going to be some days when you are going to get sick. What martial arts and other physical activities do is boosts the immune system in conjunction of a healthy well balanced diet.
    Now hay fever is caused by a reaction or a allergy to pollen or/and dust entering the nose, mouth or eyes. Hay fever just means you are sensitive to pollens and dust. Unfortunately I don't know a allot about chinese herbal medicine, but I would recommend that you go to the chemist.

    Don't fool yourself with natural medicine. It can only take you so far.

    This is in likeness of religious zealots whom believe a spirtual being will protect from illness or cure their illness.

    Modern medicine cannot be totally dismissed.

    I read somewhere, that human life expectancy had risen over the decades because of modern medicine, in comparison to the previous centuries.

    This is a totally absurd stance. You're welcome to it... but it's ridiculous. There are many natural things out there that will kill you dead. It's not as if because it's been deemed 'natual' that you can just freely ingest it. Some of the deadliest poisons known to man are natural and organic.

    Here in China there are soooooo many cases of people being killed or severely poisoned by traditional Chinese medicine due to lack of quality control... out and out ignorance of the chemical compounds involved by the practitioners and many times substances being carcinogenic or outright poisonous.

    It always makes me laugh when people have headaches and flap on as a point of pride... 'Oh I don't take any type medicine'.

    Morons. Plain and simple. Seriously... educate yourself and stop living in hippy fantasy land.

    The thing that puzzles me is how do you get an unnatural medicine?

    Vitamin C pills aren't unnatural. They are just extracted natural products. In fact alot of our medicines are just the extracted active components of those found in plants and animals. Therefore you can accurately measure the dose required to safely medicate.
    Whereas if you take a raw source then you have alot less control over dosage and contaminents.
