Alleviate Acute & Chronic Infections With Acupuncture, Nutrition, Herbs, Meditation, & Holistic Lifestyle Counseling- Studio City, Toluca Lake, North Hollywood, Burbank, & NoHo Arts District, CA
Recurring runny nose, coughing, itching, or sneezing caused by common infections should not be something you just accept as normal. Most of the time, this is caused by misguided diet and lifestyle choices that deplete the body's vital defensive functions.
Your correct response to pathogens and environmental irritants can be improved with acupuncture and by making changes to your diet and lifestyle that help strengthen and balance the function of your immune system.
Masking Infection Vs. Balancing Immune System Function
Relying solely on masking your immune system's response to recurring infections with antihistamines, antibiotics, corticosteroids, and decongestants can be effective in the short-term. But in the long-run you will be causing more harm than good by not addressing the root of the problem. Infections will continue to return, year in and out, until you address the root cause– an imbalanced immune system.
The best way to stop infections once and for all is to prevent them from occurring in the first place. In many instances, this can be done by strengthening and balancing the function of your immune system.
Respond Better & Get Natural Relief From Chronic Infections, the Common Cold, Flu, & Other Respiratory Infections
Traditional Oriental Medicine, which includes acupuncture, nutritional therapy, and herbal medicine, has been shown to be a safe and effective natural treatment for acute and chronic infections.
Acupuncture in particular can naturally help your immune system respond in a more balanced way to the surrounding environment. Through a series of interconnected chain reactions in your body, it naturally regulates proper immune system function that helps you better respond to whatever is going on. Supported through balanced food and lifestyle choices, acupuncture helps create the internal environment that promotes a more desirable inflammatory response.
Through the same chain of reactions, acupuncture also helps alleviate system-wide stress and calms the mind. This helps you stay focused, disciplined, and open-minded as you make changes to your diet and lifestyle that will help naturally resolve infections as swiftly and thoroughly as possible.
Chinese herbal remedies are also very useful in the treatment of infections. Through thousands of years of trial and error use, Chinese herbal medicines have been proven to provide a wide spectrum of nutritional value and health benefits. Modern research has now shown that many Chinese herbs and herbal formulas contain active components that display a wide spectrum of pharmacological effects, including adaptogenic, analgesic, antiasthmatic, antibiotic, antipyretic, antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, antiviral, immuno-stimulant, antiinflammatory and modulation of immune system signaling cells called cytokines. Combined with traditional indications of use, Chinese herbal formulas have become one of the best and most effective natural choices in helping to combatboth acute and chronic infections.
Get Personalized Natural Treatments For Infections With Acupuncture.
Relieving acute and chronic infections naturally with our service focuses on treating you as an individual. We conduct a thorough evaluation and create a customized treatment program designed to help eliminate symptoms and balance immune system function.
When symptoms are acute, treatment involves weekly acupuncture sessions supported by changes to diet and lifestyle, and daily doses of herbal medicine, until symptoms have cleared.
In between acute episodes, treatment generally involves monthly acupuncture for maintenance, particularly in the months before cold and flu season. This balances the immune system and strengthens the functioning of the Kidney, Liver, Lung, Urinary Bladder, and Spleen organ systems primarily involved with infection.
In addition to treating the acute and episodic treatment of infection, our therapists also partner with you to teach you how to help naturally prevent hronic infections in the future.
After an initial series of treatments, some people may need to return once or twice a year for a booster, while others may need treatment more often.
