A strong immune system is a great benefit to one’s body. From protecting against bacteria and viruses to enduring and surviving serious diseases, a healthy immune system can significantly impact quality of life issues. How can you ensure you are doing all that is possible to boost your immune system and give your body the best chance for health? There are many different ways to promote strong immunity to illness and disease, including healthy diet, exercise, and alternative treatments like acupressure.
Originating in Chinese medicine, acupressure utilizes stimulation of a trained therapist’s fingertips, knuckles or special instruments to stimulate certain points of energy meridians on one’s body. Pressing these pressure points can eliminate stress and pain as it promotes neurological flow to various organs, glands and tissues with the purpose of returning the body to a healthy condition.
There are many fans of acupressure, even outside of the alternative medical community. These days, even traditional medical doctors are recommending alternative therapies like massage, acupuncture, and acupressure to manage pain and treat symptoms.
Acupressure has been shown to help with the following conditions:
• Addictions—drug, alcohol, food, sex, etc.
• Body and back pain
• Circulatory problems
• Depression, anxiety and other emotional and mental problems
• Skin problems, and more.
The safety of acupressure is well-known as even pregnant women and seriously ill patients can safely utilize the treatment to promote healing and well-being. In fact, acupressure is a safe, medication-free way women can relive pain during labor and childbirth.
The treatment has the advantage of being non-invasive and drug-free, which means patients can avoid pharmaceutical side effects and the high costs of more traditional Western medical treatments. Because acupressure is a form of holistic medicine, the focus is on curing the disease or illness at the source, rather than only treating symptoms.
While many people think of acupressure as a technique to treat a specific symptom or condition, it is becoming more popular as a way to strengthen immune systems. Acupressure can help people struggling with chronic illness or disease to obtain the boost they need to overcome and heal.
Conditions such as candida, infections, sinus problems, and allergies can all be significantly improved through regulating the immune system with acupressure. Some patients may experience excellent results and health benefits with acupressure alone, while others will chose to use it in combination with other holistic treatments and remedies. A holistic doctor or practitioner can help you to determine the best combination of treatments for your individual situation and condition.
