Once compromised, a weak immune system results in frequent colds, allergies, and recurrent infections. A compromised immune system is often a major component of many allergies and chronic diseases. Stress, lack of sleep, poor nutrition, environmental irritants, and other common conditions can all contribute to a weakened or overactive immune system, making the body vulnerable to colds, infections, allergies, autoimmune disorders and their associated flare-ups.
Acupuncture can help regulate and strengthen the immune system, thereby reducing symptoms, speeding up the healing process, and normalising the body’s immune response to different stimuli. Over time, the cumulative effects of acupuncture can lead to decreased sensitivity to environmental allergens and often eliminate the manifestation of allergy symptoms without the use of over-the-counter medications.
