Are you feeling a bit under the weather? Do you keep getting sick? Do you find yourself taking prescription and/or over the counter medications too often? If so, then we suggest you consider improving your health with acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

How can I avoid getting sick?

Everyone gets sick at some point in their life, no matter how healthy they are. While it is true that healthier people do get sick less often, no one is completely impervious to illness. With that being the case, it is far better to have a proactive perspective on health where your efforts are spent strengthening your immune system and taking good care of your body. This can be accomplished a number of ways, including (but not limited to); getting consistent sleep, eating organic fruits and vegetables, taking a high quality multi-vitamin, drinking sufficient amounts of water, implementing a regular exercise routine, avoiding drugs and alcohol and receiving acupuncture treatments.

Can acupuncture help me feel better if I’m sick?

In the United States, acupuncture is commonly correlated with pain management, as it is quite effective at reducing/eliminating pain from the body. This is only one issue that acupuncture can treat; there are many more ailments it can resolve naturally and holistically.

The whole basis behind acupuncture, which is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, is to support harmony within the body. When a person gets sick, regardless of how or what the illness is, it creates a state of disharmony that needs to be addressed properly. Acupuncture views the body as a whole, so treatment is focused on the elimination of the disease as well as returning the body back to balance.

A licensed acupuncturist has the training and ability to effectively treat a variety of illnesses by providing a diagnosis, implementing a treatment plan and making use of a variety of treatment methods. By using this methodology, acupuncture supports the body’s resources to battle disease and improve quality of life for those who are sick.

Why do I need to get acupuncture if I’m not sick?

One of the best reasons to get acupuncture, regardless of your state of health, is to keep your body healthy and operating properly. It is far better to spend a little money, time and energy on staying healthy than to have to spend a lot more recovering from an illness. Eastern medicine is proactive and is focused on promoting the body’s ability to protect and heal itself. This is an important mindset, one that will allow you to avoid illness. While you might not need to get weekly treatments, we do suggest getting acupuncture bi-weekly or monthly to maintain good health and wellness.

For thousands of years, Traditional Chinese Medicine has been used to treat sick people without the reliance of modern medicine and prescription medication. Millions of people have benefitted from this natural medicine and so can you.
