Today at Life Chiropractic and Acupuncture Center we are going to talk about how acupuncture can help in boosting your immunity. In Chinese medicine, immunity is known as a defensive or productive system that cleans the barrier between the human body and external pathogens. When that barrier is weak, you will see the signs and symptoms result in allergy and asthma, or more severe conditions like leukemia, lupus, chronic illnesses, and more. Some of the common reasons for a compromised immune system are poor diet, poor sleep patterns, stress, chronic conditions, and environmental toxins.
Acupuncture helps in boosting this immunity by speeding up healing power, reducing inflammation, and boosting immune cells. Some of the common points that we use in acupuncture are:
- Stomach 36 - which helps in boosting the immunity;
- Spleen 9 & Spleen 6 - which helps reduce the inflammation;
- LI 4 and LI 11 - which move the body’s energy, or the chi.
