Two alternative medicine experts explain how to prevent flu and treat flu without the flu shot.

WHO and WHAT: Jennifer Moffit, MS, LAc, an acupuncturist and herbalist who teaches Chinese medicine to MDs at the University of California San Diego, responds in a new article to the flu vaccine shortage with lifestyle tips to boost the immune system and prevent flu. Brian B. Carter, MS, LAc, author of Powerful Body, Peaceful Mind and professor at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, offers free articles on cold and flu symptoms and explains a Chinese herbal flu home remedy.

WHERE: These articles may be read or reprinted without charge (with byline and link) from The Pulse of Oriental Medicine (http://www.PulseMed.org), the third most trafficked acupuncture and Oriental medicine website. They can be found on the Pulse website's disease and conditions page at http://www.pulsemed.org/diseasesandconditions.htm, or the newsletter archives page at http://www.pulsemed.org/beingwellpdf2.htm. The Pulse website was founded in March 1999 by Brian Carter, MS, LAc.

WHEN: These flu prevention and flu home remedy articles are available right now. This is the best time to learn about flu prevention. Since the flu develops quickly, and Chinese herbal flu remedies may be difficult to find (depending on your area), people may want to locate and purchase them ahead of time.

WHY: Cold and flu season is nearly upon us, and a record percentage of people do not have access to a flu vaccine. The flu can be life threatening for the old, the young, and the immune compromised (people with chronic disease, cancer, AIDS, and successful transplant patients who take immune system suppressants. For everyone else, it adversely affects work, family, and quality of life. Chinese medicine offers many effective solutions and prevention insights, but relatively few people are aware of them.
