Did you know that when the seasons change you’re more susceptible to catching a cold? The fluctuating temperatures confuse your body, and the changing weather patterns are often accompanied by wind, which is considered one of the six pernicious influences that can cause disease.
Fortunately, there’s something you can do to prevent a cold AND to recover faster if you do catch one.
If you are:
- Surrounded by sick co-workers
- Stuck on an airplane full of coughing people
- Fighting a lingering cough that’s been going on for weeks
- Getting over a sore throat
- In the throes of a nasty cold
You can use Chinese Reflexology to boost your energy to strengthen your wei qi (defensive qi for protecting against germs) and help your body heal faster.
Here’s are my three BEST articles on cold recovery and prevention:
This is the article that launched my blog. When my son was about a year and a half old, I came down with a terrible cold. I was so sick I couldn’t speak, my chest was completely congested, and I ached all over. I decided to try rubbing a selection of Chinese Reflexology points that I thought might help based on what I knew about Traditional Chinese Medicine.
The points worked so well that I was back to normal in just one day, as opposed to my usual 7 to 10 days for a cold. I thought other moms could really benefit from this 5-minute reflexology routine, so I wrote up an article and posted it on my blog—and the rest is history.
This article has been shared over 12,000 times on social media, and includes a FREE Quick Reference chart that you can download to practice this routine at home.
If you’ve got a cough that’s been dragging on for weeks, read this article! Once you start massaging these two Chinese Reflexology points as directed, it can help you clear away your cough in just a few days.

I’ve got a more articles and resources for the common cold, and even a Cold Recovery and Prevention – Chinese Reflexology Self Study Guide that includes videos you can watch and how to adapt these techniques for children.
But, I’d have to say that the top three articles in this list are the ones that I receive the most comments and messages about because people are using the techniques and are amazed at how quickly they get better.
Please bundle up (as my mom used to say to me—come to think of it, she still tells me to bundle up), stay warm, and be healthy!
