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
Eat a diet high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and low in saturated fat.
Maintain a healthy weight.
Control your blood pressure.
If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
Get adequate sleep.
Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently and cooking meats thoroughly.
