Acupuncture for the Flu? Srsly?
WHO knew acupuncture is an effective treatment for the flu? Well, WHO did – the World Health Organization. WHO has researched and studied clinical trials involving acupuncture as a treatment for many conditions. Their conclusion: they support the use of acupuncture to alleviate symptoms of the flu and improve the immune system to help prevent or lessen the impact of the flu.
How does acupuncture treat the flu? Primarily by treating the symptoms that make you feel awful – fever, chills, sinus pain, congestion, sore throat, bronchitis, body aches, no energy. Acupuncture relieves nasty symptoms that make you feel miserable, and boosts the immune system to help move you through the flu faster.
Acupuncture is very effective as a preventative measure. Acupuncture helps keep the immune system in top condition during winter months, and all year, decreasing the chance of getting the flu. It’s also very effective in the early stages of flu – like when you feel that first twinge in your throat or fevery headache.
Since no one has time for the flu – schedule an appointment now to begin boosting your immune system.

In his own practice, Oleg is experienced in pain management, headaches and migraines, stress and anxiety, neck and back pain, cardiovascular conditions, cancer care, athletic performance and recovery, post-surgical recovery, men’s health, and women’s reproductive health.
