Annually, we field questions from many concerned patients regarding flu shots for themselves and their children.

This may be a difficult decision to make; what follows are viewpoints to help you in the decision making process:

“There are three main types of flu virus, and each type can mutate, or change, from year to year. Thus, there are literally thousands of possible strains. (Each strain is thoroughly analyzed and given a proper name, often a title associated with the place where it was initially discovered.) Every year health officials produce a new flu vaccine containing three mutated strains of flu virus. To determine which strains to use, officials travel to China at the beginning of the year to assess circulating flu viruses in that region of the world. They try to guess which strains will reach the United States by the end of the year. Production begins, and the new vaccine is usually available by October.”*

We, unfortunately, treat quite a few people each year for the side effects of the flu shot.

This year, we wanted to provide you with a way that you can boost your immune system naturally at home. In this video, Mindy explains a technique called “The Acupuncture Flu Shot.”
