Common cold and flu

The common cold and flu can occur in any season and anyone can easily catch it. Typical symptoms are headache, coughing, stuffy and running nose and body aches.

We all know that exercise, fresh air, and whole foods are key factors in supporting our immune system, but did you know that traditional Chinese medicine can also be a tool in the fight against colds and flu? Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can be a valuable resource in the prevention of cold and flu, and can also help us recover from them quickly.

It is possible to use Chinese medicine to prevent the infections of colds and flu altogether or when caught early, to prevent them from turning into full-blown infections. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can boost your immune system. When people around you are getting sick, receiving acupuncture treatments and taking preventive herbs will increase your ability to fight off illness and remain healthy.

If you do happen to catch a cold or the flu, acupuncture and Chinese herbs can help lessen the severity and speed the recovery time of illness. If you visit your acupuncturist at the first signs of a cold or flu, such as sore throat, earache, fatigue or body aches, you can receive TCM treatment that will help to relieve symptoms and repair your immunity so that your body can fight off the infection. Acupuncture treatments and herbal formulas are tailored to each personís individual symptoms no matter how severe, while at the same time they prevent the illness from going deeper into the body. The earlier the TCM treatment, the quicker the recovery. Traditional Chinese medicine treats all types of cold and flu effectively, achieving a quick recovery without side effects.
