Boosting Your Immunity
Build Your Immunity to Optimal Health:
Chinese medicine provides the insight to diagnose weaknesses and imbalances in the organ systems of the body before major symptoms appear. This allows the practitioner to determine for each individual which systems need support. During your medical history, you will receive a customized plan to build your immunity based on healthy lifestyle and nutritional habits, natural remedies, and detoxification.
Acupuncture strengthens the wei qi, also called the defense qi or immunity. Many people who receive regular acupuncture remark how they never get sick even when exposed to other family members or co-workers who have infections.
Green Medicine Apothecary has multiple herbal formulas to strengthen the immune system. We make blends of Chinese, Western, and Ayurvedic herbs to take daily as an immune tonic, strengthen immunity for people fighting cancer, tonify adrendals, and strengthen the nervous system.
We accept Health Spending Account (HSA), Health Reimbursement Account (HRA), and Flexible Spending Account (FSA) funds for payment.
