As an alternative medical practitioner with over 20 years of clinical experiences, I strongly believe the key in protecting ourselves against this virus is not so much dependent on new drugs or vaccines. Rather, the key is to boost our natural immune capacities, as best as we can.
Just like everything else in the universe, we are made up of three aspects: body, mind, and spirit. Normally, I would start off recommending physical healing materials first. However, this pandemic has caused such an upheaval in our energetic fields that a more potent and direct approach is called for.
Quantum biology says when we tap into a higher level of vibration frequency, our brains start producing powerful neurological signals that will induce a rapid recovery in all aspects of our being, including IMMUNITY. So, let’s try to raise our vibration frequency first by re-aligning (from chaos) and augmenting our spiritual aspects.
Fortunately, spiritual healing is very easy to practice. Spend 10-15 minutes a day, breathing slowly in and out, gently calming your mind first. Think that with each inhalation, you bring in the most pristine and strongest healing energy into you; with each exhalation, you release all stagnant, distorted imbalances from your energy field. When you start feeling calmer, pay attention to the eternal life force doing its job at every corner of the universe. When we were busy worrying about the virus, the rest of the universe was flowing, flourishing, continuously evolving all the time.
If you feel a deep sense of peace, know that you just completed a session of spiritual healing. You can replace this part with deep prayers, reciting mantras, or whatever you wish, as long as your intent is clear and strong: You’re tuning into the highest vibratory frequency of the entire universe.
Nei Guan (P6 or PC6) is commonly used to help relieve nausea, upset stomach, motion sickness, carpal tunnel syndrome, and headaches. Nei Guan (P6) is located three finger breadths below the wrist on the inner forearm in between the two tendons. To find and use this acupressure point, (1) locate the point by turning your hands over so the palm is facing up then (2) apply downward pressure between the two tendons, massaging and stimulating the area for 4-5 seconds.
The point is located at the medial aspect of the hand.
Three-finger space below the wrist.
For Pain Control (Large Intestine 4/He Gu)
He Gu (LI4) is commonly used for stress, facial pain, headaches, toothaches and neck pain. It is an extremely important point in pain reduction. He Gu (LI4) is located on the highest spot of the muscle when the thumb and index fingers are brought close together. To use acupressure on this point, (1) locate the point then (2) use a deep, firm pressure to massage and stimulate the area for 4-5 seconds.
The point is located at the highest point of the muscle when thumb and index fingers are held together.
Locate the point between the web of the first and second finger.
For Reducing Anxiety (Yintang)
Place your thumb or middle finger between your eyebrows at the root of your nose (see figure). That is acupoint Extra 1.
Apply gentle pressure to the acupoint for 10 minutes. Less time is fine if you don’t have 10 minutes to spare.
For added relaxation, focus on your breathing and consider visualizing yourself in a peaceful place, such as in a garden, by a stream or on a cloud.
Qigong breathing means breathing fully from your abdomen or from the bottom of your lungs. It is exactly the reverse of the way you breathe when you’re anxious or tense, which is typically shallow and high in your chest. This is the way we breathe when we were a baby. All mammals breathe this way whenever they are in a state of relaxation, i.e., when there’s no clear and present danger in their environment.
Qigong breathing helps center your awareness in your body, rather than in your head, so that you feel more physically and energetically grounded. It helps you to relax your neck, shoulders and arms. It improves the circulation of blood and the flow of Qi in your internal organs.
Belly breathing provides a wonderful massage for your internal organs and increases the blood circulation throughout your internal organs. It expands our oxygen intake to a maximum, and releases accumulated toxins rapidly.
Steps of Qigoing Breathing
Qigong breathing can be done sitting down, laying on a floor, or walking. To practice abdominal breathing, follow these steps:
Take several slow and deep breaths through your nose, focusing your mind only on your breaths.
Place the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth.
Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose from your abdomen in a circular motion, as if you’re drawing a circle with your breath. You will see your stomach rises (inhale for 5 counts, and gradually increase to 10 to 20 counts).
When you inhale fully, pause for a moment and squeeze your sphincter muscle (around your anus) slightly.
Exhale slowly through your nose for 5 counts which can increase at a later point. (Some prefer to exhale through the mouth and/or a longer exhalation, but they are not critical). Imagine your belly flattens all the way back to your spine, when you exhale.
Repeat the above process as long as your feel comfortable, up to 30 minutes to an hour.
Resume your Qigong breathing when you are about to sleep.
