Acupuncture for Colds & Flu Providence, RI
Common colds/flu are both a hassle. Beyond that, most people end up breaking down and taking some chemical concoction that is sold at the local pharmacy to relieve symptoms. Who knows how that impacts your future health and well-being?
There is no cure for the common cold or flu, but surely there has to be a more natural remedy, right? First off, according to Western medicine there is no cure for the common cold.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, or Acupuncture, that is not exactly the case. Actually, acupuncture may provide such an avenue to relieve suffering from congestion, drainage, runny nose, sore throat, and the fatigue found with common colds/flu. Yet, if treated preventatively or right away, the cold may never develop.
How Acupuncture Helps
Traditional Chinese Medicine includes acupuncture, whose focus is on ensuring energy flow and balance within the body and its many systems. That differs a bit from the Western view that viruses or bacteria infiltrate the body to cause illness.
According to the Eastern view, bacteria and viruses are everywhere, and yet we are not always sick. Eastern medicine views the body as either an unwelcoming host whose systems are in balance or out of balance. Out of balance systems welcome in colds-flu.
How Colds-Flu Infiltrate The Body
Wei Qi protects the body against invaders such as viruses and colds that want to come inside the body. When this energy is hyped up and strong, then the body is immune to compromise and will not allow in such unwanted germs and viruses.
If the energy source is inadequate or gets log-jammed then it also allows and encourages such disease states. Most times a cold will come and go rather quickly on their own.
As the body gets older, sometimes it gets overtaxed and overwhelmed, which means that the systems are working harder. They can only protect so much before breaking down the barrier to the outside world. One day the overtaxed system is letting in a cold, and the next it could be a worse disease.
How Acupuncture Treats And Prevents Illness
Going for regular acupuncture treatments creates an interesting phenomenon. Basically, it keeps the body healthy by building up the supply of energy to continue the even and balanced flow of energy among its systems.
For Traditional Chinese Medicine, flow occurs among the body organs, the body itself, and the meridians. If you have any health issues that the acupuncturists treats you may hear them refer to something as having a blocked flow, being hot or cold, or working out of sync with other parts of the body.
Those are all keywords that say an acupuncturist may be able to help. The reason is simple. They work to get the energy flowing again to re-establish balance among yin and yang, organ systems, and meridians.
What all of this does for you is builds your body’s strength. It enhances what your body already does on its own.
The best part about this type of colds/flu treatment is that it is completely natural and works with the natural state of your own body. It has been around for thousands of years and is still a trusted and well-established arm of medicine long a part of the Eastern tradition.
Turn to acupuncture for reliable, effective, safe, and natural treatment that may prevent illness. It works with the body’s own energy to keep the energy flowing and balanced.
On the chance occurrence of illness, an acupuncturist may help to reduce and eliminate reliance upon medication. Instead, they may provide botanicals, or herbal treatments to support your body’s systems.
The next time you have the common cold get to your acupuncturist right away. They do have the treatment and cure for the common cold that has left Western medicine baffled for years.
Along with acupuncture sessions, you may be sent home with an herbal treatment. Acupuncturists rely upon herbal remedies that have been used for thousands of years.
Blood Pressure, Familial Shake, Tiredness, Sinus Drip & Colds
Coming into acupuncture, I was unable to walk upstairs easily. I would take each step with both feet. My hands shake, especially my right hand. I am unable to write legibly. My blood pressure was very high and I had swollen glands and colds often.
Currently, I am happy to say that the familial shake is cured and my blood pressure is under control. My right hand shake is much better. Sinus infections are also under control and I have much more energy when I continuously go to acupuncture. I am also in the process of getting off of blood pressure medication.
I have been coming for many years and acupuncture keeps me functioning and feeling well.
