Our immune systems are designed to protect us from foreign particles. The problem is that they tend to overreact to particular compounds, such as pollen. The surge of combative antibodies can leave you with a stuffy nose, sneezing and/or wheezing.
Welcome to LA, Fall of 2014! Here, where a day or night with a freezing temperature is as rare as a blue moon, the weed pollen left over from spring and summer lingers ominously in the air – threatening sinus congestion and other problems to us all.
Acupuncture – a Traditional Natural Remedy
To restore balance and promote overall health, Eastern medical practitioners have always advocated traditional natural remedies such as acupuncture. Using the latter can noticeably improve functioning of the immune system (not to mention the entire body).
Eastern practitioners believe that, properly grown, harvested, and formulated, a limited group of adaptogen herbs can be especially effective in strengthening the immune system.
The Herbs Used in Treatment
- Reishi, derived from mushrooms, is a proven immune modulator – that is to say, a herb that naturally regulates and fine-tunes the immune system
- Cordyceps, a powerful grassy fungus equipped with substantial immunological restorative properties, is also a noted detoxifier
- The popular Ginseng, used as a preventative against fatigue and illness, works to enhance vitality, mental alertness and the ability to relax
- Rhodiola rosea is believed to significantly increase both muscular performance and mental stamina
