This winter season brings more challenges to our health, more than any other. In addition to the flu and cold season, we have COVID-19 to worry about.
What it all comes down to is the common sense of wearing a mask indoors, warm clothes and strengthening your immune system.
I have seen post-Covid damages done to a few fully recovered patients (being tested negative of the virus consistently). Many develop post-infection respiratory and heart symptoms. Some develop neurological conditions and some simply experience chronic fatigue.
Some of our post-COVID fully recovered patients who could not breathe well are jogging now after treatments in our clinic.
The good news is that the immune system can be strengthened through lifestyle, dietary changes, exercises, and many therapies offered at Tree of Life Acupuncture NYC clinic.
FOODS such as garlic/ garlic water, onions, and ginger can provide antibacterial and antimicrobial actions and benefit the immune system, the lungs and keep you warm in the winter cold.
We offer prevention and health maintenance options and work with
Lyme, cancer patients, and many chronic autoimmune system disorders.
Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs can reduce stress and strengthen your immune system as well as correct sleep, digestive functions, depression and anxiety, and a host of other conditions
Kidneys have a special relationship with the Heart/Bladder and the Lungs. You can think of Kidneys as your batteries (Positive + and Negative -).
Kidneys also rule lower back, so if you have some symptoms that are worse in the Winter (back pain, breathing problems, blood pressure issues (high and low). Low energy levels may also be attributed to the kidneys. As well as infertility and low libido in men or women. If legs are swollen, you can be sure that Kidney energy is involved.
