Immune System Support
The Covid-19 pandemic has been a very harsh lesson in the importance of having a strong immune system. Your immune system is your body's natural defense mechanism against external pathogens, including microbes like bacteria, parasites, and viruses. It is made up of cells, tissues and organs that surveil the body and help fend of illness from foreign invaders Disorders of the immune system range from issues like mild seasonal allergies to serious illnesses like leukemia. While many factors, like stress, pharmaceuticals and toxic agents, inadequate sleep, poor diet, etc can deteriorate your immune system, Acupuncture is a proven and effective therapy to help recover and strengthen the immune system. Acupuncture can increase immune cell production, as well as improve overall cellular health, self-regulation and repair.
A compromised immune system is a major component of most chronic disease.
Immunity related disorders include:
Frequent viral infections
Immune deficiency syndrome
Acupuncture can regulate immune function and treat the underlying cause of the immune dysfunction and disease, reducing symptoms, speeding up the healing of infection and normalizing the body’s immune response.
