Did you know that acupuncture can be used to prevent colds and the flu, and can help speed up recovery if you catch them?
As the fall season ramps up, people are more likely to come down with colds and the flu. Getting sick is never fun, as it interferes our work, our school, and even our routine daily activities. For some people, over-the-counter medications can be helpful in addressing the symptoms of a cold or the flu, but they have little effect in healing the condition or shortening its duration.
Regular acupuncture treatments help boost the immune system and support a natural immune response. This bolstering of the immune system will help prevent colds or the flu from taking hold in the body.
Acupuncture to Get Better Faster
If you have already come down with a cold or the flu, acupuncture treatments can help relieve symptoms you are currently experiencing including chills, fever, body aches, runny nose, congestion, sore throat, and cough. While bringing some immediate relief, treatments will reduce the incidence of an upper respiratory tract infection and shorten the length of the illness.
