Yes, There Really Is A Flu – Cold Season Based On The Lunar Calendar…..
and we are just now on the other side of it….but this is only the 1st of four that occur throughout the year. Isn’t it interesting that the Coronavirus made it’s appearance during this vulnerable window of time ?
It began a few days before the last full moon on January 10 and ran approximately 4 – 5 days into the following new moon that occurred on January 24. This doesn’t mean we won’t get sick after that but this is peak cycle for flu and colds to flourish. The next one occurs in April. I promise to warn you.
How To Fortify
Pay attention to what your body’s telling you. If you’re tired, then rest. Don’t push through it. Don’t go exercise thinking you can sweat it out. Give your body a chance to restore. Your energy starts with fuel from good nutrition so eat well. Stay hydrated. Listen to the wisdom of your nature.
Take extra care with the wind. Wind is known as a pathogenic factor in Taoist Medicine. Wind changes quickly, it carries bacteria that can enter your body easily. The back of your neck at the base of the occipital, either side of the spine, there are 2 acupuncture points known as “ Wind Gate. “ Have you ever been up north when it’s cold & windy ? What do we do instinctually ? Without even thinking about it, we cover the back of our necks.
The Best Offense Is A Good Defense plus some good offense helps too !
My dispensary is stocked with super effective herbal and nutritional support that is far superior to anything that’s available off the shelf. Taken early with the 1st signs of onset, they will knock out whatever’s trying to take hold before it infects. There are two basic strategies that cover a variety of formulas that serve as defense and offense, plus other formulas for secondary symptoms and extra support. They come in tablets, liquid tinctures, or powdered formulas that my patients call “ Magic Dirt. “
Having fortification on hand is like an insurance policy. For me, if I feel the slightest little something coming on I fortify right away. For all of us when we travel we’re asked to adapt to change in environment and all the stress that goes with it. I never leave home without my anti flu – cold combo handy and within reach.
