Our immune system is constantly working to keep our bodies healthy. When it functions effectively, the body’s response to disease is strong and quick. Healthy B cells and T cells are called in to destroy bacteria and viruses leaving the body disease free. Weakened immune systems, due to inadequate rest, improper diet and too much stress are unable to properly defend the body from these opportunistic invaders.
The immune system needs constant nourishment to thrive. Factors such as inadequate rest, improper diet and too much stress can diminish the immune system’s ability to defend our bodies, leaving us susceptible to diseases.
Our immune system is constantly challenged by many new substances in the modern world. Car exhaust, pesticides and manufacturing waste all contribute to an over-stimulation of the immune system resulting in diseases such as asthma, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) use a unique diagnostic system which allows us to detect subtle imbalances and deficiencies in a person’s energy. Using acupuncture and shiastu massage, at 1000 Folded Cranes, we can modulate those energies, correcting the balance and fill the body with energy. This contributes to a stronger immune system that is capable of focusing on and eradicating diseases quickly and effectively. Acupuncture’s relaxing effects make it an ideal way to rejuvenate the immune system. Acupuncture also increases the vital energy or Qi of the body. This Qi assists in building new healthy blood cells capable of effectively destroying disease.
