The outermost layer of the immune system, the layer that pertains to the skin and respiratory system is called “Wei Chi” in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is considered the first line of defence, a veritable energetic barrier that protects us from the first onslaught of external pathogens.
It has been determined that acupuncture is effective in boosting the immune system. When people around you are getting sick, while you are receiving acupuncture treatments your body is better able to fight off illnesses and remain healthy.
If you do happen to catch a cold or flu, Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs can help lessen the severity and hasten the recovery of your illness. At the first signs of cold and flu, such as chills, fatigue, body ache or sore throat, you can use acupuncture and Chinese Herbs to repair immunity and fight symptoms so that your body can fight the infection. Also, if an illness is lingering, a couple of treatments will help stop the pattern of re-infection and weakening immunity so that you can finally get over your cold or flu.
Using Acupuncture and Chinese herbs during the recovery stage of infection is a good way to ensure that you are completely over the infection and your immune system is intact and ready to ward off the next illness. Symptoms such as a lingering cough, phlegm, or a disruption in your elimination are common complaints after a severe bout of the flu.
Acupuncture and Herbal treatment will help resolve the condition and eliminate any lingering symptoms.
