The Chinese have been treating the common cold with great success for thousands of years. Chinese medicine is extremely effective in the treatment of common colds, sore throats and mild coughing. Every person “catches a cold” for a different reason. In Chinese medicine, a “cold” is due to a combination of conditions externally and internally. A person can be run down with a weakened immune system, stress weakens the immune system making a person more susceptible. Or perhaps you have been exposed to the elements of a cold wind or extreme climate changes. Chinese medicine’s nuanced and individualized approach to treating the common cold can shorten recovery time, minimize symptoms and boost the immune system. At the first signs of a cold, a visit to your acupuncturist for treatment and herbs will make a big difference.
