During all this unpredictable weather and with viruses floating around, it is important to keep your immunity up. Acupuncture can definitely help, either to prevent colds or help you get over them once they have settled in, but there is so much you can do at home, too.
Ways to prevent colds:
*Get plenty of rest, manage your stress.
*Drink fluids such as ginger tea, mint tea, chamomile, lemon water, or make a thyme tea with lemon and honey.
*Take your vitamins, like vitamin C & D.
*Eat less sugar and more whole foods, such as soups & stews, fish & veggies, yum!
*Take chinese herbs (like astragalus), I have some formulas for sale in my office.
*Wear hats, gloves, and scarves. Keep warm.
Signs of catching a cold:
*Sore or tickly throat
*Headache and body aches, especially neckache
*Runny nose, sniffles
