Acupuncture & Immunity How does acupuncture support your immune system?
The immune system is highly complex, composed of various body systems and thousands of chemical reactions. In other words, there is a lot that goes into keeping your body healthy. Ever wondered if acupuncture can help keep your defenses up?
Weakened immunity is also often related to emotional disturbances and chronic stress, anxiety and depression. Therefore, balancing the emotions with acupuncture is just one of the many ways that acupuncture can help to support the immune system. Studies show that acupuncture is highly effective to regulate emotions while supporting the immune system.
How Does Herbal Medicine Contribute?
Throughout history, humans and plants have created a symbiotic relationship. We would not be here without the plant world, although it’s likely that plants would still be here without us 🙂 Many traditions and cultures use plant medicine regularly to keep their population healthy. Herbs are a form of plants with medicinal properties. Studies have shown that many herbs such as astragalus, echinacea and ginger support the immune system. Acupuncture and herbal medicine work synergistically as they are both integral parts of traditional Chinese medicine.
It’s important to note that there are varying degrees of the strength of the immune system. The more you can do to support your immune system with acupuncture, herbal medicine, healthy food, proper sleep, exercise, sunshine and positive thoughts, the better quality of life you will experience. Your choices determine your outcomes. Choose wisely…
