The Benefits of Acupuncture on the Immune System  

1. Balancing Yin & Yang 

According to Chinese medicine, the balancing of yin and yang energy in the body is essential to keep your immune system functioning well. Acupuncturists know that when you get sick, there are blockages of Qi (energy) or organ imbalances causing a deficiency. A pulse and tongue analysis will start the diagnostic process and help determine the treatment. 

2. Improving Organ Function 

AcupunctureThe lungs and liver are often the most susceptible to an energy imbalance. The lungs are an especially delicate organ that are responsible for the protective Qi. When they are weakened, you are more susceptible to an upper respiratory illness. If you get sick often, your acupuncturist will tailor treatments to address your respiratory health and function, and strengthen your immune system as well. This strategy prevents colds and flu with symptoms such as a sore throat, coughing, sneezing, shortness of breath.

3. Preventing Future Illness 

Acupuncture is very effective in keeping your immune system and lungs healthy which will go a long way in the prevention of future seasonal illnesses. In most cases, a combination of acupuncture therapy, Chinese herbs, and nutrition strategies will help you stay well and fight off illnesses.
