Brrrrh! It’s cold outside! Staying healthy with acupuncture and Chinese herbs
The weather is getting cooler and sweaters are coming out of the drawers. As we prepare for the approach of winter, it is also time to pay attention to our health. These days we have a heightened awareness of influenza and its possible risks to our health. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can help keep you healthy. Acupuncture builds your immune system so that you are better able to keep those germs from making you sick.
Acupuncture and your immune system
Can acupuncture really prevent and treat colds? Yes! Many patients receiving regular acupuncture care realize in the spring that they did not get their usual ‘winter cold’ or the flu. And they were not using acupuncture specifically for preventing colds, but for something altogether different.
Some people think that the flu vaccine is sufficient to stay healthy through the winter. Not true. That vaccine immunizes you against the viruses that may be prevalent this winter. It does not protect against all viruses. It does not protect against bacterial infections. It does not protect against the common cold.
Stay healthy with acupuncture
We treat the whole person and that affects your entire immune system, so you have an even better chance of staying healthy through the winter. Come in and give it a try.
