Boost Immune System
How does acupuncture help you to fight colds and flu?
Studies have shown that patients receiving acupuncture have elevated immune-enhancing hormones up to three days after treatment. Acupuncture can help to:
Prevent colds and flu by boosting YOUR immune system
Help you get over the cold or flu faster if you already have it
Reduce chills, fever, and body aches
Relieve sore throat and congestion
relieve seasonal allergies with acupuncture
Acupuncture can help relieve seasonal allergies like sinus congestion, itchy, watery eyes, post-nasal drip. It can also help regulate the immune response so it is advised to get start treatment before the symptoms arise to prevent suffering through spring time allergies.
Acupuncture was shown to be more effective for seasonal sinus allergies than antihistamine drugs in this study:
Allergies are a sign from your body that one or more organs are imbalanced or have an energy deficit. This energy deficit can be related to several organs: the Kidney, Liver, Lung or Stomach. By addressing the root cause of your allergies, we can help your body conserve your energy throughout the year thereby overcoming your allergies.
A study done in 2018 found that acupuncture done on patients with allergic rhinitis led to them using significantly less antihistamines than people who did not use acupuncture. This is great news for people looking to cut back from the medications they are using for allergy relief.
