Sarasota Acupuncture to Boost Your Immune System

Acupuncture in the Treatment of Colds and Flu

Many people are worried bout the new COVID-19 Flu vaccine, wondering if it will really work. In order to help boost your immune system, you should consider acupuncture. Since the 17th century, Oriental Medicine has been treating flu-like symptoms with success. Adults and children do not have to worry about missing valuable time at work or school because of Acupuncture. Acupuncture helps to prevent the flu by simply strengthening the body’s immune system. Acupuncture invigorates the organs of the body with fresh blood and body fluids, cleansing and helping to protect us by fortifying the body’s defensive barrier against foreign invaders such as viruses that cause illness. The flu can be spread rapidly through viral or bacterial infection in the upper respiratory tract and gastrointestinal system. The symptoms appear quickly, beginning with chills, then fever followed by the feeling of “achiness”. Prevention is the key to everything. A boost to your immune system will give you a better chance of fighting off viruses and bacteria. However, if you start to exhibit symptoms of a cold or flu, then early intervention is the key to effective treatment. The sooner treatment is received for flu-like symptoms the faster and more effective acupuncture is.

Studies have shown that Acupuncture will elevate immune-enhancing hormones and blood count up to three days after treatment.  In addition, Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can help reduce cold symptoms such as chills, fever, body aches, sore throat, and cough. Most importantly, Traditional Chinese medicine will not just alleviate the symptoms, but strengthen immune function to protect the body from future colds.
