We all know that getting sick means more than just lying in bed for a few days healing. It means staying home from work, cancelling plans, and all over feeling pretty lousy (the aches of the flu come to mind). If you work with children or in large groups of people, you know how easily illness can be transferred from person to person. In today’s environment, the stay at home and stay safe method only works to separate people in order to limit the transfer of disease; however, it does not increase the body’s actual immune health to properly ward of diseases.
With the rising anxiety around COVID-19, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a solution that can give you the extra immune boost that you need to stay safe. While practicing social distancing and staying at home is important to not further the spread of the virus, it is not a preventive measure nor a remedy to fight the actual virus. Luckily, TCM offers a way to help ward off external influences and pathogens by boosting the immune system, strengthening lung energy, and building the defensive wall to shield against pathogens.
Increasing the body’s ability to fight diseases is the ultimate solution for combating every virus and disease threat your body faces. Your immune system is like the body’s security detail. It fights and keeps out parasites, bacteria, and other potentially harmful foreign invaders. Your immune system works against immune disorders like seasonal allergies, asthma, eczema, arthritis, and more severe instances like lupus and leukemia.
TCM remedies can help boost your immune system by restoring health, harmony, and balance to your body. Studies show that acupuncture can help strengthen your immune system by increasing red and white cell counts, T-cell count, and enhancing humoral and cellular immunity in patients with immune-related illness. TCM is a unique system of treatment because it helps heal the root cause of the illness rather than just quieting and removing the symptoms of the illness.
