Alternative Medicine for Flu/Common Cold

7 Comments

Flu and cold season is here, and this year, it’s a earlier and rougher one. Just because people around you are sick, you don’t have to get sick, too. You can keep yourself healthy by getting a preventive treatments with alternative medicine, including acupuncture, cupping, Chinese herbs and Tuina massage. These treatment are also safe for children and infants. I will show special infant and children Tuina massage treatment for flu and common cold in next post. And if you do catch a flu or cold, alternative medicine can help as well. Chinese medicine is very effective for early stage of flu and cold. Remember, viruses, not bacteria, cause flu and cold. Antibiotics don’t kill viruses, so they don’t work for flu or cold.

Acupuncture for flu and common cold:

Fengchi (GB20), Zusanli (ST36), Hegu (LI4), Kongzui (LU6)

— Zusanli (ST36) has the function of strengthening the immunologic function of the human body and treating the disease caused by lower immune system.

1. Stay home and rest.
