Help boost your immune system by scheduling acupuncture both before and after receiving the COVID vaccine.
It is important to have a healthy immune system no matter what time of year it is, what is going on in life or amidst a global pandemic. Your immune system relies on your body’s overall health to maintain its effectiveness in defense and balance. Poor nutrition, stress, and exposure to pathogens all increase your risk of getting sick. Acupuncture strengthens the human body to resist diseases and functions to reduce stress and inflammation, which are characteristics that make someone more susceptible to illness.
By having acupuncture before and after receiving the vaccine, you would be enabling your defensive Qi, or Wei Qi, to better defend against the inoculation. This would assist in reducing or minimizing negative side effects, speed up the healing process and regulate the immune response system, which, in turn, enables your body to achieve immunity faster. Acupuncture does this by increasing the amount of your body’s immune cells, such as the red blood cells, white blood cells and T cells. It also enhances the immunity of those with immune-related illnesses by encouraging these cells to reproduce and boost the body’s defenses.
Using acupuncture as preventative medicine has been used from ancient time to present clinical practice. Acupuncture focuses on the theory that prevention before onset of disease is much better than treating after the onset.
