Immunity Support Q & A

What is immunity support?

Immunity support consists of any treatment that improves or maintains the healthy function of your immune system. Your immune system is incredibly important. 

Made up of organs, tissues, and cells, the immune system is your body’s line of defense against foreign invaders, including viruses like Covid-19. If any unwelcome visitors make it past your first defense, the immune system produces various proteins and chemicals, including white blood cells, to fight them off.

A healthy immune system is the key to a good, enjoyable life. When you strengthen your immune system, you strengthen your armor against countless diseases and discomforts.

How can I holistically support my immune system?

Lisa Meyerson, LAc, offers a variety of holistic immunity support services at her practice, including acupuncture, therapeutic nutritional counseling, and Chinese herbal medicine. 

All of these methods can help restore balance inside your body, which makes it easier for your immune system to work. 

Lisa offers telemedicine visits during which you can discuss your mental, physical, and emotional health and how it impacts your immune system. You can also go over various breathing exercises and eating plans for immune support.

She also offers in-person hands-on work in a safe, sterile environment.

How can acupuncture offer me immunity support?

If you’re interested in boosting your immune system, consider acupuncture. Though it may not have been the first thing that popped into your mind, acupuncture and other types of Chinese medicine can greatly support or boost your immune system.

Acupuncture is a practice that involves gently placing tiny, flexible needles into different points on your body in order to unblock the natural flow of energy, or qi, throughout your body. If and when you develop a qi blockage, you can experience detrimental effects, such as weakened physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental health. 

According to traditional Chinese medicine, this qi flows through channels called “meridians.” Acupuncture works by triggering points in the body that correspond to these meridians and unblock your qi. 

Recent research has revealed that acupuncture can support and regulate the immune system. It can, for example, enhance your immune system’s antistress function. It can also reduce inflammatory responses throughout your body.

Scientists have identified more than one acupuncture point related to immune response, including most notably the ST36 point.
