Something you may not know is that acupuncture can help improve your immune system. There have been many studies showing that not only does acupuncture help improve your immune system, it is even more beneficial in this regard for people who are under stress and therefore more likely to get sick because of the impact of stress on the immune system.
Additionally, there are Chinese herbal formulas that can be helpful. One of those most well-known to help keep us from getting sick is Jade Wind Screen. There are also formulas that can help reduce the duration of a cold or flu, or help clear out a lingering cough.
Chinese medicine gives us another set of tools we can use to take care of ourselves and our loved ones. Make an appointment today. And go wash your hands!
