Sometimes our bubble doesn't quite work right, which leads to 2 basic types of problems.
The first issue is an immune system that lets things into the bubble that it shouldn't. The most common symptoms of a weak immune system is catching colds really easily and frequently.
The second issue is an overactive immune system that actually attacks things inside the bubble. With an overactive immune system you get diseases like allergies, eczema, psoriasis, celiac disease, lupus and more.
Chinese medicine is very effective at reminding your body's immune system how it should be acting. It calms an overactive immune system and boosts an underfunctioning one. This not only leads to symptom relief, but prevents the symptoms from recurring. Isn't that the dream of anyone who suffers from immune system disorders?
Something that you can do to boost your immune system at home (and this works for an over or underfunctioning one!) is to massage the acupuncture point Zu San Li (Stomach 36). It's safe for anyone to use, including pregnant women, and has been shown to increase immune function! Click here to read more about Stomach 36 and to see pictures of its location.
