As we head into flu season…YES it is nearly here, let’s take a look at all the ways we can help prevent the flu, and reduce the symptoms and duration.
At the core of Acupuncture is the notion that a type of energy known as Qi (pronounced “chee”), flows through energy pathways in the body. Each pathway corresponds to one organ, or group of organs, that manages particular body functions. Achieving the proper flow of Qi is thought to create health and wellness. It boosts the immune system’s production of natural killer cells for up to 3 days after each treatment.
Tips for Boosting Immunity:
• EAT RIGHT – Eat warm foods, soups, stews, roasted veggies. Avoid eating cold foods, yogurt, smoothies, salads.
