We are coming into the cold and flu season currently. Generally in the US, the cold/flu season starts in Oct and can go on to Feb. We are already starting to see many people around us coughing, feeling weak and achy in the joints, and getting high temperatures.
If you have the cold, you are likely to have a runny or stuffy nose. Colds generally do not result in serious health problems. However, if you have the flu, things can get more serious. You may suffer from fever or feeling feverish/chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches, and fatigue (tiredness).
Cold and Flu are both contagious respiratory illnesses, but they are caused by different viruses. Flu is caused by influenza viruses, whereas the common cold can be caused by a number of different viruses, including rhinoviruses, parainfluenza, and other viruses. When you have the cold or flu the virus manages to lodge deeper into the body. This can lead to complications such as bronchitis and pneumonia, but also struggles with allergies, ear infections, insomnia, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia, chronic coughs and sinusitis, anxiety or depression, lympatic congestion, digestive difficulties and even autoimmune disorders such as arthritis and diabetes. Instead of running to the drugstore and taking the drugs which only ease the symptoms temporarily but it brings with it terrible side effects in the long run. For instance, when you take antibiotics, the side effect is that the drug wipes out all the bad and also the good bacteria in your gut, and resulting in problematic digestion. Natural healing on the other hand addresses the whole body and mind resulting in a more effective and safe treatment to overcome your cold and flu. HijamaEnergetics sessions for Colds and Flu relieves congestion in the body and stimulates movement of energy to restore and heal. Cupping deep tissue massage improves blood flow and helps to detoxify the area cupped and the connected regions. The session helps loosen up the congestion and phlegm in your chest causing you to expectorate it. It’s okay, good, and part of the healing process. If you’re coughing out a lot of sputum for the next day, you should feel much better after that. It promotes healing with deep relaxation and it will support your immune system by enhancing blood and lymph circulation. And you will come away breathing freer and deeper.
HijamaEnergetics for Cold and Flu
One of the natural healing modalities we use for colds and flu is to apply microcurrent therapy to the vagus nerve. The Vagus nerve is the longest nerve in your body and runs from your brainstem down to your abdomen. It’s responsible for many things, including regulating your heart rate, digestion, and immunity. When it comes to immunity, the Vagus nerve is responsible for sending signals to the immune system to tell it when to be on alert and when to calm down. When the Vagus nerve is stimulated, it can help to reduce inflammation and improve immunity. Microcurrent therapy uses very small currents of electricity to stimulate the nerves and muscles. It’s entirely safe, and there are no side effects.
