Every year I get several colds and one bout of the flu. Can acupuncture help?
Also, acupuncture is very effective for the prevention of colds and flu. It stimulates the immune system to attack the virus before it adversely affects your health. Too, if you are one who usually has a warning symptom alerting you to a cold or flu coming on, there are herbal remedies which can potentially thwart the onset.
You do not have to needlessly suffer with viruses, which are not treatable with antibiotics anyway. Acupuncture and herbs are viable options. In many instances it is worthwhile to consider your acupuncturist first. Early intervention can lead to quicker, more dramatic results.
