It’s date night, and you’re at a movie settled in with your popcorn. The movie is about to start when the guy in the seat behind you has a coughing fit into the back of your head. You’re at Starbucks anticipating the first sips of that double tall almond macchiato, and just as you’re about to grab it off the counter, the guy in front of you sneezes on it. Tis the season of coughs and flu and it seems like everyone is spraying germs everywhere. So what to do to keep yourself healthy? Come into SOPHIA Natural Health Center and get some help.
Acupuncture and Integrative Natural Medicine strengthen the immune system, so you don’t get sick when everyone around you is laid up and hacking away. Our approach is multilayered: we use acupuncture points along your body to circulate blood flow and activate immune cells to protect against infections, and we carry a supplement prevention regimen which includes Vitamin D3 drops and Probiophage to maintain the benefits of acupuncture between treatments. But what if you’re already sick because your two-year-old sneezed into your mouth? We can help there too. Using acupuncture, supplemental and food-based remedies (like Master Chen’s Healing Soup Recipe—a handout we provide with treatment), and an ancient Chinese detoxing technique called Gua Sha, we can help you heal faster. So call today to see how we can help you stay healthy and happy throughout the rest of the cold and flu season.
