Cold and Flu Season
Focus on the Immune System to be better prepared to avoid illness, more efficient in reducing the severity of illness, and more efficient in recovery.
Homeopathic medicine and acupuncture therapies are targeted at restoring and supporting the body’s immune response. This is a holistic and preventative approach that focuses on enabling the immune system to do a better job fighting off disease and recovering from illness. Another way of stating this is that a weak immune system leads to greater risk of illness, more severe symptoms, and a slower and less complete recovery.
