The change of weather from summer to autumn many times brings colds, flu, and respiratory infections. In Chinese Medicine this is the time of the metal element when lung and large intestine meridians are most active. I’ve mentioned in a previous post that if your lung or large intestine meridian’s energy is blocked, especially at this time of year, your immune system is compromised, and it is easier to get ill.
If you are traveling by plane during this season it is a really good idea to support your immune system. Days before traveling you can begin taking any one of these: probiotics, vitamin c, zinc, elderberry syrup, echinacea, essential oils (Doterra’s On Guard or Young Living’s Thieves) garlic,
oregano oil or combinations of all of them.
I’m traveling by plane this week and I’ve purchased an immune support oral spray called Myco Shield which was recommended by a friend. It includes a combination of mushrooms including Reishi and was formulated for people who are traveling. It is also important to have your energy balanced, get plenty of sleep and stay warm.
