5 Tips To Stay Healthy As The Season Changes

Chiropractic Waukesha WI 5 Tips To Stay Healthy

Seasonal changes affect the body's environment. With wind, rain, and snow come the cold and flu viruses, which are often accompanied by aches and pains.

Guard yourself this season with these five tips:

  1. Boost your Wei Qi
    • If you catch colds easily, have low energy, and require a long time recuperating from an illness, your Wei Qi may be deficient.
    • Once the nature of an imbalance has been determined, a customized program can be created for you.
  2. Schedule a Seasonal Tune-Up
    • Acupuncture and Oriental medicine can prevent colds and flu by building up the immune system. Just a few needles inserted into key points strengthen the circulation of energy and consolidate the outer defense layers of skin and muscle along energy pathways so germs and viruses cannot enter through them.
  3. Wash Your Hands
    1. A good lifestyle and hygiene habits are also proven to reduce your risk of getting sick. Protect yourself from picking up germs by washing your hands regularly and remembering not to touch your face.
  4. Sleep In
    • The Nei Ching, an ancient Chinese classic, advised people to go to sleep early, rest well, and rise late after the sun's rays have warmed the atmosphere a bit.
    • This preserves your own Yang Qi for the task of warming the body. Even busy, working people can boost their health by sleeping in on weekends.
  5. Stress Less
    • Find a release valve for your stress. According to Oriental medicine, stress, frustration, and unresolved anger can play an important part in throwing the immune system off and allowing pathogens to affect the body.
    • Acupuncture and Oriental medicine have been shown to be effective in the treatment of stress, anxiety, and depression.
