Protection from the Flu Through Acupunctur
Protection from the Flu Through Acupuncture
Flu season officially began last month and will run until May of next year, but in Hawaii the rate of infection continues year-round.
There are many ways to boost your immune system and prevent getting sick...including a method that will poke you into good health.
It’s just another visit to the doctor's office…with a steady hand and precise placement, the use of needles, heat and incense, if done right, is said to improve circulation, boost the immune system and offer relief for pain and prevent illness.
“Everybody said how you take care is the answer of how you live a healthy longer,” Dr. Jun Ae Ha of Dr. Ha’s Clinic said.(Dr. Jung Ae Ha)
In an effort to keep healthy and stay flu free many are seeking out traditional acupuncture.
“Just mainly our local patients they tell their friends, their daughters and they come in and they bring their friends in,” Sunnie Kim said.
“Maybe the ear acupoint very much good yeah,” Dr. Ha said.
Acupuncture is said to have originated in china thousands of years ago and uses needles to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue.
“Now number one topic is how we can help and how we can keep or how we can increase immunity,” Dr. Ha said.
Dr. Ha's office also recommends an organic all natural way to prevent illness with herbal supplements.
“They're grinded, dried, packed herbs that’s actually used for the liquid medicine but Dr. Ha grinds them herself,” Kim said.
Dr. Ha says she uses organic herbs to treat almost any ailment including the flu.
“We have patients coming in and they freak out and they are coming here “oh I need three hundred pills,” Kim said.
At about a dollar a pill the herbal supplements are proving to be very popular...but maybe not as popular as the resident therapy dog Rosie.
People come from all over the island to receive treatment and spend time with their little furry friend.
