Boost Your Immune System!

Boost Your Immune System!

 

Jane, a new client, recently said, “A session with Deborah turned the tide for me! I was feeling lousy and thought I was getting a cold.”

 

Within a few minutes of starting our call, she felt relief from sinus pressure, headache, and achiness.

 

“…And then she gave me self-help acupressure flows to continue using for allergies and my Covid shot!

 

Those flows and energy tips keep on doing the trick, and I’ve had more energy than I’ve had in days. Now I see Deborah regularly, and my body is a lot happier with no aches and pain. I live hundreds of miles away from her, but those Zoom sessions are changing my life. I didn’t even have reactions after my second Covid vaccination!!

 

Deborah’s right! Boost your immune system, and your body will be happier!”

 

Energy balancing IS all about strengthening your immune system!

 

COVID brings the conversation about immune systems front and center. A stronger immune system will help you and your body resist germs and bugs, reduce allergy symptoms, potentially lessen reactions to vaccinations, and calm the nervous system.

 

There are healthy ways to strengthen your immune system

 

Harvard Health Medical School suggests that following general good-health guidelines is the best way to keep your immune system working properly. A few of the top strategies include:

  • Minimize stress.
  • Eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables.
  • Exercise regularly
  • Get adequate sleep.
  • Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently.

Harvard Health study says stress can suppress your immune system, increase your susceptibility to illness, contribute to anxiety, and cause depression.

 

We can’t avoid all sources of stress in our lives, nor would we want to. But we can develop healthier ways of responding to them. Harvard Health recommends that breath and relaxation can make a difference in your wellbeing.

 

I’d like to show you how YOU can help your body let go of stress and not have it accumulate in your system.

 

Self-care Practice

A self-care practice teaches your body how to take care of itself and to be healthy and vital. While doing your self-help acupressure, you are also doing the following and a lot more–expanding breath, relieving pain, having more vitality for your daily activities, managing feelings, sharpening clarity and focus, increasing creativity and productivity.

 

Here are self-help acupressure energy tips to boost your immune system, relieve allergies, and help you move easily through your vaccination.

  1.  Right hand—cup right shoulder near the neck
    • Left hand—hold fingers on the left chest below the collarbone
    • Switch to do the other side
  2. Right hand—hold fingers on the right base of the skull
    • Left hand—hold fingers on left base of the skull
  3. Right hand—cup forehead with fingers on the left side
    • Left hand—cup back of head with fingers on the right base of the skull
    • Switch to do the other side
  4. Left hand—cup right shoulder near the neck
    • Right hand—hold fingers at sitz bone/hip area
    • Switch to do other side

Harvard Medical Recommends

Harvard Medical identifies several techniques to help turn down your response to stress. Breath focus helps with nearly all of them:

      • Progressive muscle relaxation
      • Meditation
      • Yoga, tai chi, and Qi Gong
      • Guided imagery

Add self-help acupressure to the list!!

      3. Exercise regularly
      4. Get outside

Hope, Faith & Energy

Hope, Faith & Energy

Are you feeling at odds, unhappy, maybe lonely? Are you feeling overwhelmed and unsure of what you should do next to clear the to-do list? Perhaps you’re also taking care of others, and you have their feelings and needs to look after, too.

If you have all of that going on and even more “stuff,” you might experience a sense of hopelessness, feeling that it’s never going to change. And, with all of that, you’re most likely experiencing some fatigue. Dealing with it is just too much!

Look at everything that is going on in this crazy world. COVID-19, social distancing, massive civil unrest, fires or hurricanes or flooding depending on where you live, evacuations, destruction, the election. Okay. The list is already too long, especially since each one of those can create stress and anxiety and the feeling that “it’s just too much.” No wonder we hear the phrase “pandemic fatigue.”

Kids are Feeling Stressed Out

What’s sad is that children are experiencing the same stress, overwhelm, not knowing what’s coming next, frustration, and sadness. They feel exhausted by social distancing, not being with their friends, and feeling hemmed in.

How do we cope and get on the other side of it? It’s super important to help our bodies get to that place. Otherwise, our bodies will think they are in constant trauma.

Trauma Adds Stress

Trauma and the effects of trauma bring us to a place of being on edge, wary, confused, even holding our breath. Energetically, trauma causes the energy pathways to get blocked and stuck. Energy needs to move, and it needs to change. Otherwise, our bodies will manifest “projects” that can cause unhealthiness and chronic fatigue. (Instead of problems, let’s use the word projects. They’re more fun to work with, and they have a beginning and an end).

Tips for Reducing the Effects of Stress

I have some easy-to-do ideas on how to get on the other side of it all.

Number One

We can help our bodies get out of confusion and create calm. You can do easy self-help acupressure to let go of fatigue and develop physical, mental, and emotional balance. It will help you sleep easily, feel healthy, be happy and joyful, have clarity and focus, increase self-esteem, and feel optimistic about tomorrow and beyond.  That’s where hope and faith come into the picture! (There’s a link at the end of the article to get you to easy self-help energy tips).

Number Two

I think we need to take Oprah’s advice that I read in her recent Inspiration Newsletter. We need to embrace hygge, the Danish art of coziness. Danes rank as the happiest people in the world, even today.  How do they get to that place?

What the Danes Do to Feel Happier

The Danish make sure that several essential elements are part of their daily lives, including relaxed thoughtfulness, meditation, and time spent with others. And, yes, we can spend time with others without actual physical contact. Now more than ever, we need to create time with others that create an atmosphere that is warm, relaxed, friendly, down-to-earth, close, comfortable, snug, and welcoming. It is like a friendly hug—but without the physical contact. In this situation, you can be yourself and relax completely. Therefore, the art of hygge is also the art of expanding your comfort zone to include other people.

So, I guess we have to do it with social distancing and maybe even over Zoom. No matter what, create the time for cozy togetherness! Our bodies, hearts, and souls hunger for it!

Another significant element the Danes bring into their lives is “living lights.” They make use of candles to bring light and create sunny smiles.

Maybe this year, we need to make sure we put up those holiday lights for the color and the sparkling lights that bring those big smiles. As many of you know, I love Christmas. What I also know is that I need those lights as the days get shorter and shorter. And, even though very few people will see my Christmas extravaganza, it just might be the year it all gets displayed.

Hope and Change

Another piece we need to be aware of—change wants to happen, and it needs to happen. The body you walk around in is in constant flux because it’s energy. A body in energetic balance will quickly experience the change, and it will be a positive shift. The trick is to be creative in appreciating ourselves and find enjoyment within the shift. Maybe the difference is merely relishing an accomplishment.

Consider using this simple worksheet to help you see the changes that you can implement. It uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which uses your mind to notice the good stuff. It focuses on behavioral changes in your daily life, for instance, tracking your emotions according to your activities. So, it’s learning how to notice when your body is giving you a message.

Ways to Make Your Body Happy & Healthy

Of significant importance in strengthening our immune systems is helping our bodies NOT feel stressed. Let’s face it—we ARE in a world of stress. The trick is to help our bodies not take it on and then hold on to it.
Your body will be happier if you’re happier—to get outside and get lots of fresh air! That will help your whole body feel better. AND do things that bring smiles and laughter!
Your body will have a harder time being happy and not taking on stress if it isn’t experiencing energetic balance. Bring on balance and harmony by smiling and laughing. Reprogram and re-pattern your body with self-help acupressure. Give it new habits, and it won’t have a choice – it will want new ways of being in balance and harmony. And your body will be happier.

Doing the Daily Clean Your House Flow Will Reduce Stress!

And, please note this flow connects with your immune, endocrine, and adrenal systems to add extra support and give them a boost.

Ah(choo) Spring!

Allergy SuffererAre you sick and tired of the symptoms of allergies?

Feeling any of these symptoms:

  • sinus congestion
  • sneezing
  • headaches
  • itchy watery eyes
  • itchy throat
  • a stuffy or runny nose

If you are constantly dealing with any or all of those miserable symptoms, you are most likely noticing a loss of productivity. These symptoms impact sleep and vitality in a big way. Spring grasses, weeds, and tree pollen (allergens) can bring on those pesky discomforts. If you are like me, you don’t want to hide inside. You want to enjoy what Mother Nature has created for you. 

3 easy ways to reduce the misery of seasonal allergies

Follow along and learn how to reduce reactivity to the pollen floating around outside.

Use acupressure to relieve allergy symptoms

Jasmine came for a Jin Shin Jyutsu session feeling uncomfortable and lousy. Swollen, weepy eyes. Her head hurt. Jasmine had intense sinus congestion.  She had been doing all the right things to boost her immune system: lots of self-help acupressure flows and drinking lots of water. It seemed like an uphill battle and she was on the losing side. She left our 90-minute session in comfort and ease. She could breathe deeply. Her face was no longer puffy, and her cheekbones reappeared.

Why did Jin Shin relieve Jasmine’s allergies?

Our bodies are made of energy. Energy needs to flow. Conditions, illnesses, and injuries are evidence of blocked energy. Acupressure helps energy flow. It allows the body to let go of symptoms and heal.

Now, when Jasmine does her daily self-help acupressure, she will notice the benefits more readily. And everything else she does for herself will help her body be happier, healthier and more comfortable.

Hydration!  Drink lots of water!

Allergies have a tendency to dry out our systems. It’s important to hydrate your body. Avoiding dehydration will boost your immune system and help maintain normal histamine levels. Read more about it in this article from mytapscore.com, http://bit.ly/2JtBbuM

Lubricate your body adequately with good fluids, including electrolytes, and all layers and levels of your body will notice the difference. Your physical, mental, emotional, and energetic levels will all cooperate with each other and bring health.

Eat anti-inflammatory foods

Beat seasonal allergies the natural way by adding anti-inflammatory foods to your grocery list. Pineapple, which contains the enzyme known as bromelain, fish oil, and fresh ginger are just a few that will reduce allergic reactions.

Allergies Getting the Best of You?

Giant IrisAll of that rain followed by heat and here comes more rain! Then pollen is released! If you have allergies, this may be a recipe for suffering.

Is your body in reaction?

You can get on the other side of it by helping your head empty the build-up. And you can potentially do it without using over-the-counter drugs. Make use of your fingertips and do a few acupressure flows!
The reason that allergies can create so much havoc is because a suppressed or depleted immune system will allow your body to react more readily to the allergens that are all around you. Build up your immune system and you can increase the chances that your body can change its pattern and not react to the allergens.
Build a strong foundation to support balance and harmony by doing the Daily Clean Your House Flow.
Here is a sneak peek of my soon to be released Seasonal Allergy Relief: The Insider’s Guide to Feeling Good Every Day. 

Help your head feel lighter and provide relief for tired eyes by following this simple tip:

  • Hold fingertips on the right side of your forehead with your left hand
  • Then, hold fingertips at left base of your skull with your right hand

The Beauty of Spring

The beauty of spring lilacsSpring is all about transformation. We see it all around us – the plants growing, the land changing all around us.

Our bodies are also in the mode of change. Are you feeling the shift as a boost of vitality and a greater sense of awareness? Or are you experiencing tiredness and loss of energy? If the latter is the case, you may also be experiencing allergies. It’s not unusual that they go hand in hand. But it doesn’t have to be that way!
Discover how easy it is to walk around in a body that has balance and harmony and allows you to experience all the beauty of spring. Let go of blocked energy that is creating allergies, tiredness and loss of energy by doing your energy work! It’s super easy to do the Daily Clean Your House Flow.
