acupuncture enhances immune functioning

 
The fall is coming, students get back to school and the cold starts to incubate sickness for next round of the cycle. What are the preventions? Other than the common knowledge we know, most of people probably did not know that acupuncture enhances immune functioning and helps to regulate various immune problems back to a normal state. A recent research (2010) studied the acupuncture effectiveness to attenuate stress and stimulate lymphocyte proliferation in the elderly (Neuroscience Letters, 2010). The result showed that acupuncture was able to significantly reduce depression, anxiety and stress. The intervention also increased T-cell proliferation. That means acupuncture not only increases the amount of white blood cells, but also improves their actions. A regular maintenance by acupuncture can enhance immune function and helps to fight with cold.
