Respiratory & Immune System and Oriental Medicine

In our challenging and quickly changing times, immune system health has never been more important. A healthy immune system can better combat infection from virus or bacteria compared to a compromised and neglected immune system.

In traditional oriental medicine, we use both acupuncture and herbal medicine to strengthen the immune system. Traditional oriental medicine strengthens the immune system and prevents many illnesses from gaining the upper-hand. It helps prevent flus, cold and cancers. Acupuncture and Oriental Herbal Medicine also helps to detox the body and blood, flushing the body of harmful toxins. It is also a very effective treatment for respiratory problems, from allergies and asthma, to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It helps with both acute and chronic cough. 

Acupuncture increases the amount of your body’s immune cells, such as red blood cells, white blood cells, and T-cells. It enhances the immunity of those with immune-related illnesses by encouraging these cells to reproduce and boost the body’s defenses. Oriental medicine naturally helps to dramatically lower stress levels and increases strength of the immune system because acupuncture calms the body’s immune system to promote homeostasis and boost the body’s ability to combat illness, which is critical in the modern world.
