Overcoming Frequent Cough & Cold Symptoms
Catching a cold isn’t so much about the spread of infection, but more about the strength and resilience of our immune system. Stress is well known to be a factor in lowering the immune response as it raises cortisol levels which affect the body’s immune function.
This leads to increased bouts of:
• Fever & Body Aches
• Sore Throat
• And other illness, including more serious diseases
Where there is a robust immune system, the body is efficient at throwing off pathogens and either no or very few ill-effects are experienced.
Are you experiencing frequent bouts of cough, cold, sore throat or flu-like symptoms? Treatments offered at Nicky’s Thorpe Bay clinic are aimed at rebalancing the system and increasing resilience to common infections.
Some acupuncture points are used to help alleviate symptoms of cough, blocked up nose or sore throat, whilst other points are used to support the immune system or to move energy where it has become blocked through periods of physical and mental tension. Acupuncture is known to have a remarkably relaxing affect which is helpful for people who are feeling stressed
