The news headlines and hospital statistics say it all— COVID infections and hospitalizations are at their highest since 2020— in 2022 fashion. 

The best we can do to keep ourselves and our families safe is through three key things:

  • Wearing a mask

  • Social distancing/laying low from big social events

  • Boosting the immune system 

The first two are pretty straightforward, but when it comes to the third tactic we might enter some gray area as to how to best accomplish this. 

Of course, eating whole and healthy foods and getting enough sleep is one part of maintaining a regular threshold of immunity. However, supplementing your healthy everyday habits with acupuncture treatments can help skyrocket your immunity to the astronomical levels needed to properly combat the disease. 

Acupuncture Can Help Your Body Fight COVID and Other Diseases

Booking an acupuncture session is one of the best things you can do to strengthen your body’s defenses. Acupuncture treatments, for starters, lower stress— which is a crucial component in the immune system’s ability to fight infection. Acupuncture activates and balances the immune system, resulting in a strong line of protection against any disease encountered.

Acupuncture boosts the number of immune cells in your body, such as red blood cells, white blood cells, and T-cells. It also boosts the immune system of those who have immunological-related disorders by encouraging these cells to multiply and strengthen the body’s defenses.

Why Is Acupuncture So Effective in Boosting the Immune System? 

Most conventional treatments are aimed solely at alleviating symptoms rather than addressing the underlying problem. Western medical therapies frequently try to suppress the immune system in cases of overactivity rather than correcting the underlying problem. These medications, in addition to avoiding the underlying cause, may induce unpleasant and even harmful side effects.

Acupuncture is remarkable in that it stimulates immunological cells, resulting in a more effective and long-lasting treatment for immune disorders. It alleviates symptoms, hastens recovery, and modulates the immune response system. It boosts your cells’ ability to “communicate” with one another, hence improving your defense system’s capabilities.

Acupuncture cures a wide range of ailments and is especially beneficial in lowering your susceptibility to the several illnesses that become more prevalent in the late fall and winter. 

We recommend that you get regular acupuncture treatments throughout the year, and we encourage you to start as soon as you can!
