When I met Peach he had contracted FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) and consequently snuffled from the bacterial and viral infections he was susceptible to because of his supressed immune system. Antibiotics sometimes cleared his airway temporarily but not enough for him to breathe comfortably. He started coming to the office for acupuncture treatments. He was needled to stimulate his immune system. He was also needled at LI 20 (those points on either side of the nose) which cleared his nostrils while we watched. After the first treatment the nostrils remained clear for about a day. With each treatment that time lengthened. Eventually he would breathe easily for about 5 days after his treatment.
The effects of acupuncture typically augment in quality and duration with each treatment. Contrast that with antibiotics; their efficacy decreases with use!
