Immune Boost Acupuncture
Acupuncture & Inflammation Relief
Acupuncture works for improving immunity in two major ways- the local effect and the systemic effect.
Every needle inserted has a local chemical effect: increased production of cells and their housed enzymes and peptides that your body naturally makes; most notably white blood cells and natural killer cells.
These cells fight infection and kill harmful microorganisms that would otherwise damage our bodies. When these cells are stimulated in large amounts from acupuncture, the brain recognizes this (via neurotransmitters which acupuncture also help produce) and continues to regulate the production of hormones and neurotransmitters leading to a whole body immune response.
