Coronavirus, Acupuncture, Diet and Lifestyle

Research shows that Acupuncture strengthens your immune system. It will therefore almost certainly help you survive and fight off coronavirus. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20399151

Easy Diet and Lifestyle changes can also have a big effect on your immune system, which helps you to fight Coronavirus.

At our £20 acupuncture clinic in Guildford, Surrey, we will be offering acupuncture and dietary advice that will help you deal with coronavirus.

Coronavirus

Coronavirus is a virus. There are no medicines or drugs that help fight it. So the only thing that fights it when you catch it is your immune system. It is your immune system that will fight and overcome it. And if your immune system is not strong enough to fight and overcome Coronavirus, then it will become very serious.

Coronovirus kills very few young people, but as you get older, specially over 50, the risk increases dramatically, with 15% of coronavirus patients over the age of 80 dying at present. https://www.businessinsider.com/coronavirus-death-age-older-people-higher-risk-2020-2?r=US&IR=T

Some factors that make Coronavirus more likely to severely effect you are:

  • Age – the older the more likely.
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Existing lung issues
  • Having poor immune system

Acupuncture and Coronavirus

Acupuncture is well known to improve the immune system. There are much research proving this. (see references below). In our clinic we see this every day.

Acupuncture can also improve blood pressure. In our clinic we have seen many parients blood pressure improve. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26365445

In our clinic we have had really good results with lung issues, including my own long term asthma. Acupuncture has been shown to help lung issues, and strengthen the immune system while doing so. This is is important in us fighting off coronavirus. Specially older people and those with lung issues. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26939313

Also Anxiety decreases your immune system, making fighting coronavirus harder for you. Acupuncture has been shown to reduce your anxiety and increase your immune system. It also shows that the improvement in your immune system from acupuncture can last for up to a month. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17265549

Acupuncture treatment is given daily in the far East. So it is good to come in for a treatment as often as you can. However just one treatment a month can improve your immune system for that month. This is really positive news!

So it is vitally important for you and your family that you make you and your family’s immune systems as strong as possible for the next 6 months. And now is the time to start doing this.

With this in mind I have started self treating with acupuncture to strengthen my immune system and reduce my anxiety.

Diet and Coronavirus

There is a lot you can do with your diet to strengthen the immune system. This is what I do personally:

  • The main thing is to stop all sugar intake. Eating sugar weakens your immune system significantly for at least 5 hours.
  • Also reduce refined flour, and ready meals.
  • Cook 2 meals with vegetables in every day.
  • If you are tired a lot try giving up gluten for a week and see what happens. For many people the effect is amazing.
  • Cut down and if possible stop alcohol. It will benefit yor immune system to do so
  • Take a probiotic every day. 70-80% of your immune system is in your gut!
  • Take at least 2gms Vitamine C daily. It strengthens your immune system.
  • Take a daily multivitamin.
  • Have a 10mg zinc supplement daily.
  • Have Vitamin D supplement daily. It strengthens your immune system. We don’t get enough sunlight in the UK.

Lifestyle and Coronavirus

  • Exercise regularly. It will strengthen your immune system.
  • Sleep for 8 hours. Not enough sleep weakens your immune system.
  • Take stress out of your life where possible. Stress and anxiety weaken your immune system.
  • Laugh and sing. Amazingly the evidence is that this strengthens your immune system.

Acupuncture for the Immune System

acupuncture immune virus coronovirus

Acupuncture can really boost your immune system. This can make a real difference with viruses, such as colds, flus. And because it boosts your immune system we think can will help you fight viruses like Coronovirus (Covid-19). Acupuncture is holistic, and uses our body’s own energies to heal. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20399151

The main protection against any contagious disease is your own immune system. Medicines can struggle with infections, because they mutate and change. But a strong immune system adjusts quickly to mutating viruses and bacteria, and fights them off.

At Affordable Acupuncture Guildford in Surrey we see many people with immune system deficiencies. We also treat people for conditions not directly related to immune deficiency. As a side affect of acupuncture treatment our clients find they get less ill and fight viruses a lot quicker.

In a recent Taiwan study they looked at older people who at some point in their life had regular acupuncture at some point in their lives. Amazingly, they had a lot better general health years later, being less likely to get strokes and heart disease.

In our Affordable Acupuncture Guildford clinic we also help people with changes in their life style. We give individual, tailored advice that works. Diet, for example, is a complex issue and is different for everybody.

For a healthy immune system it is very important to eat well, sleep enough, and exercise regularly. But the modern busy life doesn’t always allow enough time. We find that regular acupuncture can help a lot. Then, even with other issues, our body’s natural immunity stays strong.

We see more and more clients with poor immune systems, sometimes due to treatments such as chemotherapy, and who are scared of catching infections (like coronovirus). Acupuncture helps maintain their immunity during these scary times.

Adults and children are increasingly suffering from autoimmune diseases. This is where the immune system attacks it’s own cells instead of outside pathogens. In these cases over-active immunity is the problem. Acupuncture and dietary advice can really help with this.
