Dr. Emad Tukmachi, MBChB, DTM (Dublin), PhD (London) (Clinical Director of UK Acupuncture Clinics)

The outcome result of epidemiological statistic for the past year indicated that millions of colds and flu cases occurred in the UK. The most serious problem with the misery of cold and flu season might be their negative impact on both the society and the economy. Most people follow the simplest way to protect themselves from cold or flu which is not getting in contact with airborne virus particles. However, the first line of defense against any type of infection whether viral (like flu /cold) or bacterial is by enhancing the power of body immunity.

The main symptom of cold is that the whole body of a part of it feels cold. Cold causes fluids to congeal in the body; this cause pain. Pain is caused by the obstruction in the flow of energy (Qi) or Blood. Cold causes material substances to coagulate in the channels; this causes cramps and spasms. When cold diseases are present, the body excretions (mucus, tears, phlegm, urine and stools) are white or clear and watery.

What is the place of acupuncture weak Immune system?

In Chinese acupuncture theory, acupuncture can help to treat and prevent colds and flu by enhancing the immune system through increasing the body's energy. While the acupuncture prevention of any disease is usually achieved by concentrating on the protective layer around the exterior of the body called Wei Qi (the defensive energy). This type of energy (the Wei Qi) can be produced by needlingspecific acupuncture points which can stimulate the circulation of blood and energy  in order to boost the body's defenses.

Acupuncture is very useful in combating infections. Where antibiotic may have to be used, the need for prolonged antibiotic therapy can be considerably reduced by the concurrent use of acupuncture. It is indicated in case of resistance or hypersensitivity to antibiotics and in chronic infections where the antibiotic have failed or given rise to serious side-effects. In the Peoples’ Republic of China, it has been shown that acupuncture alone can be effective in infections, including viral infection. Here again, certain specific points have to be used to enhance the immunological effects.
