It’s known that in order to have a healthy life you needs to have a strong immune system. Your immune system takes care of eliminating most of the illnesses before they manifested themselves and it’s the one that helps you recover quickly from an illness if it happened anyway.
You probably heard that in order to have a strong immune system you need to avoid smoking (including passive smoking), moderate alcohol consumption, keep low stress levels and most importantly — follow a healthy diet.
However it’s also known that the immune system’s strength naturally diminishes with years, which explains why older generations are so prone to illnesses. Therefore it’s really critical to strengthen your immune system as you get older.
Now I’m going to explain how you could strengthen your immune system using techniques from Su Jok.
Find out points as per figure 1:
Now heat up those points using Moxa.
Do this procedure once a day on both palms.
Massage those points according to figure 2.
For this purpose it is very good to use massage stick or any other suitable subject for example a ball pen without ink.
Press these points with a moderate effort and begin a slow rotation of the stick in two directions. Carry out this massage for several minutes once a day.
The final step is to apply buckwheat seeds to points according to figure 3.
Use a band-aid in order to attach them to fingers. Leave those grains in place for 10 to 12 hours. If water gets onto the seeds, simply replace them with fresh ones and use a new band-aid.
Do this procedure 2-3 times a week.
Finally remember that physical activity strengthens the immune system and helps prevent infections and illnesses.
