Preventive Medicine

In addition to a healthy diet and lifestyle, regular acupuncture treatments and herbal medicine are two of the best methods to protect and enhance the immune system and prevent inflammation and disease.  Our patients report increased vitality, less pain, less frequent colds and flus, shorter duration of colds and flu, and decreased seasonal allergies. Acupuncture and  certain herbs have been shown to maintain homeostasis of the immune system by mediating the balance of both helper and suppressor T cells, increasing natural killer cells, regulate leukocyte numbers, increase circulation and decrease inflammation.
