Keep Your Family Strong with Acupuncture!
With all those news reports out there, wouldn’t you like to have your family’s immune system in full force?
Viruses and illnesses don’t need to be welcomed with “open arms” — boost your immunity with acupuncture!
Here’s how it works.
The immune system provides an individual’s body with the ability to fight disease. It is a complex system of organs – including highly specialized cells and even a circulatory system separate from blood vessels – all of which work together to clear infection from the body. It is when this system is working in a harmonious and balanced way that a person is considered to be healthy. When balance is lost, disease can arise.
When the body’s energy (Chi) is moving sluggishly and brokenly, the body falls prey to viruses more readily; when the body’s Chi is in balance, the body stays healthy and can fight off viruses. Acupuncture can bring the body back into balance! 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.
Everyone is absolutely unique and has his or her own individual challenges. Acupuncture works with the individual to strengthen the weak areas and boost immunity, even on a cellular level.
Here’s some other ways to give your body an edge in staying healthy

A Healthy You with Acupuncture!
We have all felt the warning signs — that scratchy feeling in the throat, the sudden sneezes, the drippy nose, followed by being ruled by your mucus, and a sudden need for super soft tissue. Millions have suffered from the common cold, and chances are good that you’ll catch at least one this year. The cold is the most common infectious disease in the human race. It is a disease of the upper respiratory system, caused by a viral infection. Symptoms include coughing, sore throat and increased mucus production (either a runny or stuffed nose). The average person suffers from 3-4 colds per year.
Although it has become a cliché, there is no cure for the common cold, but most symptoms are gone within 7-10 days, though some colds can last for weeks. People suffering from colds are extremely contagious — a regular routine of hand washing and avoiding situations where infected people are likely to spread germs are two important ways to prevent catching a cold.
If you are in a state of balance both within yourself and in relationship to the world that you live in, your resistance to illness will most likely be sufficient to keep you from contracting a cold or flu in the first place. We are exposed to viruses all the time, and often the people most likely to get sick have been under a lot of stress, are over-fatigued, have allergies, or are generally out of balance.
Acupuncture is a wonderful way to rebalance the body energies to optimize the immune system’s ability to keep you healthy and clear up a cold quickly. If you are susceptible to catching colds easily, know that studies have shown how acupuncture helps increase white blood cell count resulting in a boost to your immune system. With acupuncture, you will feel your sinuses clearing a lot even during the first treatment! Point sites will address the other causative tensions that got you susceptible in the first place. Few treatments – great results! If you have come down with a cold, it is also important to get adequate rest, a vacation from sources of stress, and good nutrition in the form of soups and fresh juices. People that receive regular acupuncture treatments get sick less often. If you have a cold or flu, acupuncture can help you recover more quickly. But prevention beats suffering it to begin with!
