Your immune system is your body’s security detail — the cells, tissues and organs that comprise it help repel foreign invaders like bacteria, parasites and other microbes that can cause infections. Disorders of the immune system range from mild seasonal allergies to serious illnesses like leukemia. Stress, lack of sleep and other common conditions can contribute to a weakened immune system, which can make you vulnerable to infections.
Acupuncture therapy can treat a wide range of health conditions, including immune deficiency, by stimulating and balancing the immune system. Acupuncture can also strengthen a weakened immune system by increasing red and white cell counts, T-cell count and enhancing humoral and cellular immunity in patients with immune-related illness.
Acumiho Acupuncture and Moxibustion understands that traditional treatments can stimulate and regulate immune function, treating the underlying cause of the disease by reducing symptoms, speeding up the healing of infection and normalizing the body’s immune response by stimulating specific portions of the autonomic nervous system through selected acupoints, which in turn causes responses in the immune system. Acupuncture can also promote the rise in levels of interferon on of the immune system’s messenger hormones. Acumiho also promotes the application of regular acupuncture therapy to all her clients which can be effective in treating asthma, allergies, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, colds and infections.
