Acupuncture for Immunity
TCM says, the body is protected by the Wei Qi (Way Chee). It is comparable to the immune system in conventional medicine. It is the first line of defence when the body is attacked by external pathogens. If the Wei Qi is strong, the body can fight bacteria/viruses.
Excess stress, reduced sleep, unhealthy diet plays a role in how strong the body’s Wei Qi is and its performance. Several modalities in TCM help keep the immune system strong and healthy, which include acupuncture, moxibustion, herbs, cupping and nutrition. TCM modalities treat the root cause of the disease.
It works by the following steps:
- Reduce the symptom
- Speed the healing
- Decrease excess phlegm
- Decrease inflammation
- Boosting the immune-mediated
Acupuncture treatments increase the number of T cells in the body. T cells destroy harmful viruses in the body. Acupuncture needles stimulate the brain into thinking that an invader has entered the body. The brain signals the increase of T cells to fight the intruder. This cellular response lasts for several days even after the treatment. Thus, receiving regular treatments can prevent the body from getting sick. Health is optimum when 5 elements are well balanced. We’ve lost consciousness that we eat more junk, have anger issues, insomnia, headache, etc. thereby energies are highly imbalanced that cause these issues.
At Acushastra, we align these imbalances with the use of needles that help to release blocked energy, so that effective function can be restored. Body systems like, digestive, cardiovascular, immune, endocrine, nervous are addressed. Initially, we see patients once in 15 days, later once in a month for maintenance of a good and healthy body and mind.
