Frequent colds and flues can weaken the respiratory and immune systems and lead to chronic conditions such as asthma, chronic cough, hay fever and sinusitis. The best method for preventing colds and flues is to maintain good health prior to the cold and flu season, this will give your body the best chance to avoid becoming ill.


Chinese Medicine is used to treat respiratory disorders by improving the general respiratory system function and supporting the immune system to prevent the issue from reoccurring. Dietary therapy is a large part of treating respiratory conditions in conjunction with Chinese Herbal Medicine and acupuncture. Children’s dietary intake greatly influences their respiratory health and in most cases just altering their diet will make a significant difference.
