Acupuncture for the Common Cold

Few things are as aggravating as getting a cold. In fact, cold relief has become a billion dollar per year industry because people are so desperate to find a way to get relief from the symptoms and minimize the duration. While there are new products that claim to help coming out all the time, must of them don’t really do much to actually help cure the common cold. One option, however, that most people overlook is acupuncture. Acupuncture has been used to treat the common cold for a very long time, and with great success.
Thanks to the fact that western medicine has done everything possible to discredit the effectiveness of eastern cures, most people aren’t aware of this possibility. The reality is, however, that acupuncture is a very effective form of treatment for the common cold and many other ailments. Most people can come into the office for just one or two treatments to get their body to properly fight off the cold so that it is far less severe and lasts a fraction of the time it otherwise would.

No Unwanted Side Effects

Anyone who has taken cold medicine of almost any type knows the unpleasant side effect known as “Medicine Head.” This is when your brain feels like it is in a fog and you really can’t think clearly. In addition to being very annoying, it can actually be quite dangerous if you try to drive or operate heavy machinery. Other cold medicines are known for putting people to sleep, which is certainly unwanted in most situations. Acupuncture, on the other hand, has almost no unwanted side effects. A small number of people will experience a redness near where the needles are inserted, but beyond that there is nothing to complain about.

Effective Cold Relief

Those considering acupuncture for a cold relief will definitely want to know how effective it is, and why it works. To put it simply, acupuncture can help to provide great relief from the symptoms of a cold, and also strengthen your immune system so that your cold does not last nearly as long. By addressing both the length of the cold, and the symptoms, it is possible to get through a cold with almost no inconvenience at all. The sooner you receive an acupuncture treatment after you begin to show symptoms, the more effective it will be. Those who receive regular treatments usually don’t get colds very often at all.
