Don't Let Cold & Flu Season Get You Down!, Sunshine Healing Arts Acupuncture & Wellness in Jacksonville Beach, Florida

Every year, thousands of people get sick with colds or the flu.  Common symptoms include nasal congestion, coughing, sore throat, sneezing, headaches, fevers, watery eyes, fatigue, and body aches. Although feeling sick is never fun, this is your body’s signal that the immune system is working to restore itself to a state of good health.  However, if your immune system is already weakened, a cold could leave you open to a more serious illness.

Traditional Chinese medical theory is that an illness occurs when certain organ systems within the body are not balanced, causing them to be weak. When our bodies are in a weakened state, this allows viruses and germs to thrive, leading to a cold or the flu.

Studies have suggested that Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can reduce the incidence of colds and shorten the length of the illness when used as a preventive measure.  If illness does occur, acupuncture and our custom herbal formulas can help get you back on your feet quickly. Acupuncture and herbs are a safe, natural and effective way to support the immune system and re-balance the body.
