Sore Throat, Runny Nose, Fever
Germs, bacteria, and viruses are always everywhere in our everyday environment. When our body is healthy, we won’t have a problem with the germs, bacteria and viruses, but when our body is weak, our body can easily be invaded.
The immune system is considered the “Wei Qi” in Chinese medicine and if there is an imbalance in Wei Qi, our body can become weak. If the organ system is weakened, it will not be able to produce more Wei Qi and the body will be vulnerable to attack. When our body is weak, we are more likely to become sick.
Clinical studies have shown that acupuncture can be used as a preventative approach against colds and flu and may reduce the likelihood of upper respiratory tract infection and can shorten the length of the illness. Acupuncture will strengthen the body and help increase your Wei Qi to end your cold and flu symptoms sooner.
