How Acupuncture may Boost Immune System during Winter Time


The lovely autumn season is almost over and we are now preparing to enter our winter; but little did we know that flu virus normally spreads easily in cold weather than hot weather.  It is good to be prepared for the next season of the year, so it is never too late to have and acupuncture with the help of Chinese medicine to nourish your body during the upcoming flu season.

Acupuncture therapy may treat a wide range of health conditions, including immune deficiency, by stimulating and balancing the immune system. It may strengthen a weakened immune system by increasing red and white cell counts in blood. The triggers to a weakened immune system are poor nutrition, stress and/or exposure to harmful agents; which results in frequent colds, allergies and reoccurring infections. This therapy not only boosts your immune system, but also strengthens your ability to fight off the virus and help relieve the symptoms once you get infected.

Acupuncture may regulate immune function and treat the underlying cause of a disease simply by reducing its symptoms, speeding up the healing of infection and normalizing the body’s immune response. A regular acupuncture therapy may be effective in treating asthma, allergies, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, colds and infections.
