There’s Some Scary Stuff Out There! Acupuncture Boosts Immunity

 
Keep Your Family Strong with Acupuncture!

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

Attack of the Intruders of the Flu Kind? Acupuncture Boosts Your Immune System…

Acupuncture Keeps Colds at Bay

Acupuncture and a Healthy Diet Keeps Your Immune System Happy!

Wouldn’t it be nice to be that person that never gets sick? Colds arise from viruses. Viruses are everywhere, all the time. We don’t catch colds all the time, though, because our immune system usually keeps us healthy. It’s when our energy wanes and our immune system struggles that we become susceptible to viruses.

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.

Chinese medicine practitioners and many traditional medical doctors, (including Dr. Oz) recommend acupuncture as a natural way to boost your immune system, keeping it strong against intruders. Acupuncture heals imbalances in your immune system and also restores energy channels that have become disrupted. When these channels are open, the immune function functions at an optimal level and your body stays healthy. Scientifically, 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.

Diet also plays an important role in keeping your immune system strong, and often minor adjustments will make a major difference in you staying healthy. Simple diet modifications can greatly improve the functioning of the immune system.

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!
