There are lots of things we can incorporate into our daily life to keep ourselves healthy and strengthen our immune system. As discussed in the previous post, its not so much our exposure to germs but the strength of our resistance (our immune system, or "Wei Qi") that determines whether we get sick or not, especially when we are talking about infectious illness. So I'd like to introduce you to a simple technique that you can start doing today to boost your Wei Qi and help detoxify your body - dry skin brushing.
With the change of weather, you might have heard people talking about 'cold and flu' season being just around the corner, and start to see various products crowding out chemist and supermarket shelves. There is a sense of hype about this time of year, where we are advised to not go within sneezing distance of anybody, not to shake anyone’s hand, and never, ever touch a doorknob, shopping cart, or any other object that might have possibly come into contact with any human at any point during its existence! If you buy into the hype you may find yourself locked away in a dark room waiting for the hazmat team to give the “All Clear.” :-)
