What is TCM's (TCM includes the practice of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine) take on the Swine Flu? Does it work?
Three Reasons to Consider Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine to prevent or treat the flu virus!
# 1. IMMUNE SUPPORT- Acupuncture and herbal medicine have strong properties to support and keep your immune system strong.
If you invest time in yourself and your family now, you will be less vulnerable to any cold or flu bacteria or virus. Stress, fatigue, insomnia, or work environments make you more susceptible. Take good care of yourself so you are not run down. Acupuncture and/or an herbal formula made specifically for you are amazingly effective.
I can treat all ages! Children are more often given a gentle herbal formula rather than acupuncture. Treatment is based on their age and temperament (if you know what I mean, Mom)! If you are already running ragged".make an appointment for your acupuncture tune-up. It will be well worth it.
#2. SAFETY! TCM treatment has little or no side effects in comparison with Western pharmaceuticals that have major side effects and are hard on your liver and kidneys. If you get a cold or flu, I can treat you so you are well SOONER!! No need to be sick for weeks on end"no need.
The Chinese powdered herbs that I use are FDA inspected and are of the highest grade, quality and consistency. The herbs I use to reduce fever, strengthen your lungs, resolve sinus infections and head congestion are anti -bacterial, but more important ANTI-VIRAL. Western medicine lacks a solid antidote to virus. We have you covered!
#3. EARLY DETECTION SYSTEM- TCM treats what is perceived, felt or seen.
Western medicine needs a specific, identifiable diagnosis before treatment begins.
This loss of time means that your body weakens, spiraling downward into more disease.
If you feel sick, weak or tired let me treat you now and turn that spiral upward to create stronger health and bullet-proof immune shield. You will avoid sickness, minimize it if you do get sick, or move through it quickly if you are already infected.
Bottom line--- minimizes your risk!
