When the weather varies, as it does at this time of year, the body is particularly susceptible to attack. If our immune system is weak we are more than likely going to pick up coughs, colds and possibly the flu. Acupuncture is an effective treatment for these conditions as not only can it help prevent them, but it can also successfully alleviate symptoms once they have taken hold.
Traditionally in the east, usually during a change of season people would see an acupuncturist in order to boost their immune system. If your immune system is robust you should be able to ward off any potential viruses or infections before they take hold.
