The body’s immune system is designed to allow for free movement of benign or friendly substances into the body while keeping out harmful or pathogenic ones. Since roughly 75-80% of immune function comes from gut, any treatment addressing the root cause, needs to include digestive support. Beyond this, common treatments focus on managing symptoms.
Western medicine’s only approach in treating immune disorders is to suppress the symptoms and, in severe cases, to suppress the immune system itself. Chinese medicine works to address both root and branch of the issue (the cause and the symptoms), thus restoring health to the individual while improving quality of life.
Acupuncture can certainly address symptoms relating to immune weakness. More rapid result can be achieved by combing acupuncture and herbal supplements.
Common signs of immune weakness include:
- Fatigue Allergies (seasonal or year-around)
- Frequent colds Chronic sinus infections
