Winter’s Coming! Strengthen Your Immunity!

Boost Your Immunity with Acupuncture!

Boost Your Immunity with Acupuncture!

Want to increase your immunity? Try acupuncture!

Feeling sick of the cold weather already? Many Americans believe that catching two or three colds a year is normal. They endure the symptoms, often relieving them with over-the-counter medications that can cause serious health injury. They also take cold and flu shots, which can actually cause illness themselves.

But did you know that you can live your life entirely cold-free without taking anything harmful into your system? Your immune system can heal itself the second an intruder sneaks in, preventing a cold from ever happening.

How does it work? Acupuncture acts on the body’s own subtle energy system to clear obstructions and maximize the flow of energy and blood through the healing mechanisms of the body, including the nervous, endocrine and immune systems. This enhances the body’s own innate healing capacity and leads to an overall increase in energy and vitality.

But that’s not all. Treatments often bring about a sense of wonderful relaxation. It has been proven that such deep relaxation helps regulate the autonomic nervous system, which can help reduce stress and anxiety, and expand a sense of well-being. 

Acupuncture works to strengthen your immunity.  Acupuncture heals imbalances in your immune system and also restores energy channels that have become disrupted. When these channels are open, the immune system functions at an optimal level and your body stays healthy. Researchers have found that acupuncture enhances the production of natural killer cells, the body’s defense mechanisms against viruses and bacteria. Acupuncture also regulates the activity of white blood cells, which also fight against infection and allergic reactions.

Get relief from pain, depression symptoms and more with acupuncture!

Acupuncture can address the weaknesses in the body in the same way a vaccine addresses weaknesses; by boosting energy and giving the body what it needs to strengthen itself. Acupuncture also helps the brain increase the body’s level of T-cells; cells which destroy bacteria and harmful viruses in the body.

During cold and flu season, particularly for people susceptible to colds, it’s a good idea to boost your immune system every few weeks with acupuncture. The great benefits are that besides avoiding illness, you will see numerous positive side effects, such as a deeper sleep, clearer skin and a more relaxed and positive attitude. Take that, nasty germs!

Acupuncture also aids with pain relief, easing depression, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and many other ailments. With acupuncture you’re ready for winter!

Reduce Bloating and Digestive Issues with Acupuncture

Acupuncture brings relief from gas and other digestive issues.

Soothe bloating and other stomach discomforts with acupuncture!

We all have a tendency to overindulge when celebrating with family or friends, or with tempting leftover Halloween candy.

If you feel bloated, you may be receiving a signal that the body is not digesting food properly. Sometimes poor digestion results from intolerance to a specific food, such as gluten or lactose. Other causes include irritable bowel syndrome, not drinking enough water, eating high-fat foods and stress.

If indigestion, gas or bloating bother you more than just an occasional episode from overeating, acupuncture treatments can help!

Acupuncture heals the channels of the entire digestive system. It eases symptoms and discomfort immediately, relieving indigestion, stomach ache and acid reflux, bloating and constipation.

Acupuncture works immediately to harmonize, balance, and strengthen your digestive system. Acupuncture may also benefit patients who find their symptoms are brought on or worsened by stress, anxiety and emotional issues. Acupuncture helps to calm the nerves, resulting in a relaxed body, and a happy, healthy digestive system. It’s also a great immunity boost! 

Don’t suffer from digestive discomfort. Try acupuncture!

Prevention can also be helpful. Here’s a few tips to avoid bloating.

Go for a short walk after meals -- it's good for your digestion!

A short walk after meals is good for your digestion!

  • Eat slowly! Take time to enjoy your food — you avoid swallowing air, which can lead to gas retention.
  • Avoid salt – an extra salty meal may lead to water retention, which causes bloating.
  • Avoid fatty foods – fats take longer for the body to process, hindering digestion.
  • Avoid carbonated drinks – as you consume these drinks, carbon dioxide gas builds up in your body. This can quickly lead to bloating, especially if you drink them quickly. Plain water is best.
  • Go for a walk – a short walk can alleviate bloating after a meal.

Boost Your Energy with Acupuncture!

Feeling your spirits drag with the change of the clock?
Acupuncture boosts your energy!

If you feel tired and drained, you are not alone. “Lack of energy” is one of the top five complaints that acupuncturists hear.

There are a number of conditions that may be responsible for your fatigue. These include anemia, thyroid issues, low blood sugar, and chronic fatigue syndrome. However, if these conditions have been ruled out, you may have a tough time getting to the bottom of why you’re so tired.

Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which works on the principle that all the organs in the body have an energy (Qi). Energy travels out of the organs and connects to your skin through channels called meridians. The meridians are connected all over your body.

There are many reasons why your Qi supplies get depleted. Poor diet, digestive issues, illness, working too hard, stress and strong emotions, and even chronic pain can all deplete your energy. If the energies become out of balance through stress, overwork or excess partying, you may experience low energy levels, digestive disorders or not being able to sleep properly.

Acupuncture works to clear obstructions and maximize the flow of energy and blood through the healing mechanisms of the body, including the nervous, endocrine and immune systems. This enhances the body’s own innate healing capacity and leads to an overall increase in energy and vitality.
