Symptoms of runny nose, sneezing, and watery or itchy eyes, specifically during Spring and Fall, are common conditions for which many individuals seek acupuncture and Chinese Medicine treatment. Poor nutrition, stress, and/or exposure to harmful environments all lead to a declining immune system. We consider a successful outcome to be an 80% reduction in these symptoms.
Chronic lung diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, asthma and chronic bronchitis are also conditions that can be treated with acupuncture. While these are case-by-case scenarios, each session begins with an accurate diagnosis to determine how we can best support you. In some cases, we feel the problem is beyond our ability to help, and in those cases, we refer to a trusted Western medical physician.
RESTORING THE IMMUNE FUNCTION
Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs regulate your immune function by,
- Increasing circulation into areas that require more immune presence.
- Directly enhancing immune system components via herbal medicine.
- Resolving chronic states of dysfunction and thereby freeing up the immune system for other defense projects.
