Tips on Self Healing for Allergies

The use of hot-hot sticks can really restore your healing power. First, you must upgrade your lifestyle.

Diet: Do not miss breakfast, cut back the size of your dinner and do not skip meals. Take 1000mg of Vitamin C during the allergy season.  Drink lime juice with local honey, 8 to 20 ounce a day. Add 200mg of Ginseng (either a pill or tea) before 3PM everyday.

Hydration:  Drink chicken, onion, ginger soup more frequently.  Don't forget to swish your liquid all the time when you drink. These can enhance your oral hygiene, and also adequately hydrate your self. Donít forget to swish your liquid in your mouth when you drink. This can enhance your oral hygiene and allow you to properly hydrate.

Sleep: Avoid staying up too late. If possible, try to go to bed before 11PM. Getting 8 hours of quality sleep every night can help keep the allergies away.

Stress Management: Practice Qi-Cong breathing more frequently during the allergy season.  Do not forget to curve your tongue upwards all the time when you are not talking.

Sex Life: For those who are sexually active, watch out 24 to 72 hours after intimacy. Try to restore the good energy back on time. Good rest and nutrition can prevent allergies from getting worse. Itís quality, not quantity that controls your healthy lifestyle.

Exercise:  Do a facial massage, quick whole body massage, and Chinese bow exercise to stretch your spinal cord throughout the day.

Do the Dawn-tein area massage: Massage your lower abdominal area a couple of times a day. This is the area below the naval, down to the pelvic bone area. Do Qi-cong breathing and rub the skin on this area vigorously at least 24 times with your left hand first and then use your right hand. Do this motion after each bathroom break. Do it regularly at least 4-5 times a day. Do not do it if you have a full stomach or when your bladder is full. Do not do it right after aerobic exercise or while you are short of breathe. Do not do it right before bedtime.

Dress Code:  Dress warmer and try not to catch a cold.  Drink onion/ginger soup ASAP if you think that you were exposed to the cold.  It works good in the first 24 hours.

Home Remedy:  If you have mild congestion or post nasal drip - make fresh radish juice and use as nasal drops Ė 2 to 3 drops in each nostril. Use it in the other side, 1 to 2 hours later. Repeat 2 to 3 times a day.

Chinese herbal tea: Huang CHi 15gm, Dar Zhao 12 pieces, Guo Chee Zi 2 tablespoon, Dawn Shin 9gm add 3 cups water (300-400ml),cook twice and collect total of 240ml for 1-3 days supply. Store in the refrigerator. Drink 120ml every day or every other day before 3pm for 14 days each month.
