​Immune System Support

The strength of our immune system is a good indication of our overall health. There are many important factors which contribute to it's vitality. In Oriental Medicine the vital energy that is responsible for protecting the body from environmental disturbances belongs to the Defensive Qi. This Qi has a very close connection to the strength of the Lung energy. It maintains the integrity of the bodily elements that come into contact with the outside world: skin, the lining of the respiratory system, the lining of the gut and the eyes. When this vital energy becomes weakened or ‘deficient’, foreign substances are allowed to penetrate the body’s barriers, resulting in a series of natural responses that attempt to expel the invading environmental factors.

Recurrent colds or prolonged respiratory  infections show a weakness in Defensive Qi and Lung Qi. Treatments are tailored to strengthen those energies in order to boost our immune system and make it strong to deal with external factors such as climatic changes of the seasons and invasion of microbiological pathogens.

General maintenance treatments with acupuncture as well as Oriental herbs, especially in times of seasonal change are important to ensure the continuing benefit to the
immune system. 

The role of acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is to improve the strength and circulation of Qi and Blood. There are a number of stages in the process of improving our immunity, depending on which conditions need to be addressed. For acute conditions, such as the
common colds or flus, we reinforce the strength of the Defensive Qi to eliminate the external pathogen. For more chronic conditions, such as chronic sinusitis or allergies, we eliminate internal pathogens then rebuild and restore the strength of the internal organs, so that they can produce and circulate Qi and Blood more efficiently.

Another important factor that can impact our immune system is our emotional and psychological health.
In Oriental Medicine there is no separation between the emotions, mental and physical health. Mind and body are one. Any imbalance, emotional, physical or environmental that continues over an extended period will have a negative impact on our health. For example long-term depression, anxiety, anger, frustration, sadness or  worry, can affect the strength of our immune system. Vice versa,  a weakened immune system may lead to emotional or psychological imbalances.
