Natural Immune System Strengthening

Acupuncture

Acupuncture can help modulate the immune system. Studies have shown that acupuncture treatment can assist in the treatment of diseases like chronic hepatitis infection. Acupuncture reduces the symptoms, speeds up the healing of the infection and normalizes the body's immune response.

Acupuncture work by stimulating specific portions of the autonomic nervous system, which in turn causes responses in the immune system. One study has found that acupuncture stimulation can cause a significant rise in blood levels of interferon, one of the immune system's messenger hormones. The effect lasts for several days and is much safer than other methods of boosting interferon.
