The Team at Integrative Medicine and many of our patients opt out of flu shots for a few reasons. Some patients have gotten sick right after receiving the vaccine; while many become severely sick later in the season; we have even been privied to cases where friends or relatives of patients died after being given the flu shot. Making an informed decision of whether vaccination is right for you and your family is paramount. For those who choose not to pursue vaccination we have designed a package called Flu Care.
Based on our clinical observation and experience, a short series of acupuncture treatments could help prevent flu and colds without any of the risk. The strength of which is only increased when combined with immune boosting herbs and a few easy dietary and lifestyle guidelines. Every cold season our patients are happy to receive our, well-thought-out, preventive care. Flu Care can be conveniently combined with treatment for an existing injury. Yet many patients don't mind paying the extra expense even if preventative care may not be covered by certain insurance plans. Flu Care truly is an investment into your health and sanity for this busy time of the year.
This week is the national flu vaccination week. But you have more choices-flu shot or Flu Care.
Be well and happy!
