Flu Disease and Acupuncture

Acupuncture plays an effective role in healing many diseases and disorders, as well as preventing the recurrence of many diseases and disorders. We will talk about whether there is flu among these diseases and illnesses, which we cannot avoid catching, especially in the winter months.

During the winter months and epidemic weeks, there is no one, especially among employees, who does not catch the flu. When we catch the flu, the runny nose, nasal congestion, headache and most importantly, fatigue make the disease completely unbearable. In our country, America and Europe, vitamin supplements are taken as standard to avoid catching flu. In China and Japan, acupuncture is used to prevent flu.

Acupuncture plays an effective role in curing around 150 diseases and disorders. However, influenza is not among the diseases that can be cured with acupuncture treatment. One of the main reasons for this is that the drugs used today for the treatment of influenza are quite sufficient to cure the disease. The fact that medications are easily accessible, used and provide effective results is much more logical than treating the flu with acupuncture.

When it comes to preventing the flu, rather than treating the flu, using medication loses its appeal. Because drugs contain chemicals, they have side effects and are therefore not a treatment method that provides pure benefit. For this reason, physicians are looking for alternative methods to drugs.

Research on acupuncture in preventing flu disease is not considered sufficient. Because there are 2 studies on this subject, and they do not prove that flu disease is definitely prevented. The two studies in question were created in line with the statements of people who received continuous acupuncture treatment. In the first study, 3 people who received acupuncture treatment regularly declared that they did not get flu during the winter. Another research is being done in Japan. In a survey conducted with the participation of 326 Japanese volunteers, it was found that acupuncture was effective in treating colds. The effects against it are being asked. The results of the survey are reported, but these results are not considered scientifically qualified evidence. Therefore, we can say that acupuncture may be beneficial in protecting against colds, but we cannot take it for granted.
