Acupuncture can assist you if you’re looking for a way to provide your body extra support for improving its immune system. Your immune system can be damaged in a number of ways, including when you don’t get enough sleep, when your diet changes, when you don’t spend enough time outside, and even when the seasons change. Everyone wants to maintain a healthy immune system so they may feel better and participate in all pleasurable activities.
Your immune system shields your body against pathogens like viruses and bacteria that cause disease and infections as well as from internal cancer cells. If you frequently get colds or other illnesses, your immune system is compromised and requires help.
Immune system deficiencies might show up as
- recurring colds and flu (more than 2-3 times per year)
- feeling drained and worn out
- unhealthy skin or hair
- injury recovery takes a while
- digestion issues
Your body can recover and build its resistance to infections with the use of acupuncture.
The immune system is boosted with acupuncture, and your overall health is strengthened, increasing your body’s ability to fight against infections. Research has demonstrated that acupuncture is efficient at boosting the body’s white blood cell and T-cell counts, with improvements in immunological function lasting up to a month after treatment. Acupuncture is a great method that can be used to treat conditions that adversely impact your immune system.
In addition to treating the immune system directly, poor sleep, stress, and anxiety can be treated to alleviate the underlying problems influencing your immune system.
Immune system support is a prominent purpose of acupuncture. Your body becomes stronger as a result, making it easier for it to tolerate physical or emotional stress. When used as a preventative measure or as a treatment for pre-existing illnesses, acupuncture is very helpful.
You may boost your body’s immune response on your own by reducing stress, getting adequate sleep, maintaining a nutritious diet, and engaging in regular exercise. Another option is acupressure.
Acupuncture involves putting extremely small needles at specific acupuncture points on the body to stimulate those points. Based on the indications and symptoms you exhibit at the time of treatment, various groups of acupuncture points are selected.
Similar techniques are used in acupressure, however, instead of inserting needles, pressure is used on the same points. Just rubbing these areas for a little period of time can activate the acupuncture points, and it is quite simple to do. As the stimulation is neither as deep nor as targeted, the response you get is typically weaker than when using acupuncture on those same points. Yet, it might be quite beneficial for a quick at-home remedy to give you a boost before your next acupuncture appointment.
Talk to your acupuncturist about your symptoms if you suffer from immune deficiency and haven’t been able to find full relief from medications or other lifestyle changes. Your acupuncturist can then help identify the underlying cause of your problem through a thorough health history and work with you to develop a treatment plan that may include both acupuncture and herbal therapy. Don’t wait another day; call to schedule an appointment for acupuncture right now, whether it’s for unpleasant seasonal allergies or something more serious.
