Fight Colds, Allergies and the Flu: 3 Ways to Boost Your Immunity

chinese immunity herbs(1)    Enhance your immunity with Chinese herb formulas that build immunity while moving pathogens out of the body.

I recommend stocking up on formulas such as Yu Ping Feng pian, which can be used to help prevent flu, cold and bacterial infections.

This formula can  also help you recover faster if you are exposed to pathogens and develop illness.

Another formula, Yin Qiao, can be taken during the first two days of viral infection to speed recovery.  It is a formula that works only in early stage infection, so do not take it for more than 2 days or start it if you have been sick for more than 48 hours.

For allergy symptoms, try the formula Bi Yan Pian which can be helpful for relieving upper respiratory symptoms associated with allergy including runny nose and sinus congestion.

 Immunity Boosting Meditation

  • Sit in a quiet place and allow your body to relax.
  • Breathe in deeply for a count of five.
  • Exhale deeply for a count of five.
  • Visualize silver light filling the lungs fully and completely as you breathe.
  • As you continue breathing deeply, visualize this silver light cleansing and strengthening the lungs.
  • Imagine this silver protective light forming a bubble around your body, strengthening your immunity system and empowering you to fight off pathogenic invasions such as cold or flu.
