Boosting Your Immune System

The weather has been all over the place this fall, temperatures have been up and down and it seems like the cold is now here to stay.  We had our first snowfall in New Jersey on Saturday and my patients and people I come into contact with are dealing with colds, sinus infections and laryngitis.

There are many things you can do to boost your immune system to prevent colds and flu.  It seems every few years I have a different favorite remedy.  Always the most important factors are to get enough sleep and keeping stress levels down.  If you are having trouble with sleep or stress, call now for acupuncture treatment and get this under control.  In addition to sleep and stress, eating well and not indulging in sugar is important fortification for the immune system.

The past couple of years I have been using fire cider to boost my immunity when I was feeling like I might come down with something or if someone in my family was sick.  This year I didn’t make any, but I do have some that I purchased but I haven’t tried it yet.  I have taken a new route and have been using essential oils.  Lately, I have been using oregano oil when I think I need a boost along with acupuncture of course.

What’s your remedy?
