It’s important to have a healthy immune system, no matter what time of year it is. The period of late fall through winter is commonly considered “cold and flu season,”. The holiday season and spending time with family and friends is all the extra reason to keep your body’s defenses at their peak!
Acupuncture helps your natural immune system, the disease-fighting cells of your body, to work their best and protect you from an illness during this season.
Your immune system relies on your body’s overall health to maintain its effectiveness. Poor nutrition, stress, and exposure to unhealthy environments all increase your risk of getting sick.
During the colder fall and winter months, your body has the added stress of handling cold weather, the stressful holiday season, and increased exposure to others with various types of the common cold or flu. At the same time, we all want to enjoy this time of the year with the confidence that our immune system will keep us healthy!
One of the best things you can do to increase your body’s natural defenses during this time of the year is to book an acupuncture appointment at a Modern Acupuncture clinic nearest you. Acupuncture is a natural treatment that helps to treat the root cause of common immune issues and prevent the recurring ‘cold and flu’ that many experience. Firstly, acupuncture treatments reduce stress, which is a major factor in the immune system’s ability to fight off infection. Acupuncture may also help stimulate and balance your immune system to help create a strong line of defense against germs, and viruses that you may come across during this season.
Acupuncture has been shown to naturally increase the body's natural immune cells. Regular acupuncture treatments can increase red blood cells, white blood cells, and T-cells to naturally boost immune defenses and recover from immune-related conditions. This is especially important for enhancing the immunity of those with immune-related illnesses by encouraging these cells to reproduce and boost the body’s defenses. The elderly population and those with pre-existing conditions are especially susceptible to colds and flus, making regular acupuncture a great choice to help treat and prevent these conditions.
Acupuncture is unique from other treatments in that it boosts the immune cells themselves to result in a more effective and long-lasting remedy for immune issues. It reduces the symptoms, speeds up the healing process, and regulates the immune response system.
Acupuncture treats a variety of conditions and is especially helpful in reducing your susceptibility to the many illnesses that are more prevalent during late fall and winter. At Modern Acupuncture, we recommend that you receive treatment year-round to boost your immune system and prevent sicknesses all year.

“I have 3 auto immune diseases, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus and Sjogren's disease. When I first came to MA I was in a full RA flare. My joints were so inflamed, I couldn't even hold a hair brush to comb my own hair. I came to MA 3 times a week consistently for treatment. The acupuncturist knew exactly how to treat me. Within no time at all I had less inflammation and swelling. My 18-year-old daughter has also been treated at MA for her cystic acne with amazing results and my mom with diabetes also gets treatments. We love the professional, helpful healing we all get from MA! I recommend them to anyone who wants to achieve a natural holistic approach to their care.”
