Heather is in NZ pending updates to travel restrictions
I am very sorry – I was intending to be away for 2 weeks – but changing travel restrictions mean I am not sure now – when I can return . . .
MAYBE 26th still – but will be then in quarantine. .
On 12th March I decided to go home (NZ) a week early.
Seems like I may be here a while.
As soon as I can . . .
In the meantime . . .
There are avenues I have set up – especially online.
If you need help . .
I am at the end of the phone.
And a Skype consult is always the best way.
BECAUSE though I would love to be there helping you
– I am now stuck in NZ!!
BALANCE . .what the doctors do not know
Acupuncture professionals could be all over this
– were we allowed to do what we could!!!!
WHAT DO I EAT??
Many of we traditional East Asian doctors – (to give us the title we would have elsewhere) – are exceptional at HEALTH care
Here is one of my colleagues with his suggestions.
You have heard it all before from me – and will always – eat to live.
PLUS I am forever on about NO COLD . .
What has been taken down is a post I found on SARS – Co -2 and that is its actual name – warm air . .
And make sure you are happy – can’t hurt.

Translated by the Secretariat of the World Federation of Acupuncture Moxibustion Societies
‘COVID-19 is an acute respiratory infectious disease, which is highly infectious and commonly susceptible, and poses a serious threat to people’s life and health.
It has been included in the infectious diseases of class B prescribed in the Law of the People’s Republic of China on Prevention and Treatment of Infectious Diseases, and is managed according to class A infectious diseases.
COVID-19 belongs to the category of “epidemic” disease in traditional Chinese medicine.
For thousands of years, traditional Chinese medicine has accumulated rich experience in the long-term medical practice of fighting against epidemics.
As an important part of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture-moxibustion has its own distinctive characteristics and unique advantages, and has made important contributions in the history of anti-epidemic in China.
There are related records of acupuncture and moxibustion for epidemic prevention and treatment in classical literatures of TCM.
For example, Sun Simiao, doctor in the Tang dynasty, put forward in his book Beiji Qianjin Yao Fang (Prescription Worth a Thousand in Gold for Every Emergency),
“Those who travel to infectious disease areas often need moxibustion and form purulent moxibustion, so they will not be infected by malaria and warm malaria.”
In Compendium of Materia Medica, Li shizhen, physician in the Ming dynasty, elaborated,
“Artemisia argyi… Moxibustion can smooth the meridian patency, cure hundreds of diseases, and recure people who suffer from long-term illness.”
These two books both record that acupuncture can prevent and treat infectious diseases.
Modern clinical and experimental studies show that acupuncture-moxibustion can regulate the human immune function, and act on anti-inflammatory and anti-infection.
Acupuncture-moxibustion plays an active role in the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases.
In the face of COVID-19, Chinese acupuncture and moxibustion therapy has actively participated in prevention and control, and achieved good results.
With further understanding of COVID-19 and accumulation of clinical experience in acupuncture and moxibustion therapy, according to Diagnosis and Treatment Plan for COVID-19 (trial version sixth) and Suggestions on TCM rehabilitation during convalescence of COVID-19 (trial version) issued by the General Office of National Health Commission and the General Office of National Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine, we formed Guidelines on Acupuncture and Moxibustion Intervention for COVID-19 (second edition) for medical workers in acupuncture implementation and guidance of patients at home.
1. Principles of Acupuncture Intervention
ⅰ) During the epidemic, acupuncture intervention work should be subordinated to the overall situation and carried out methodically under the guidance of medical institutions at all levels.
During acupuncture treatment, work should be strictly implemented in accordance with the requirements of quarantine and disinfection.
Acupuncture treatment for confirmed and recovering cases, several patients can be treated in the same room; while for suspected cases, different patients should be treated in separate rooms.
During respiratory-support oxygen therapy, moxibustion can be used under safe conditions.
ⅱ) The clinical diagnosis, staging, classification, and syndrome differentiation of TCM for COVID-19 shall follow the COVID-19 diagnosis and treatment plan issued by the General Office of the National Health Commission and the General Office of the National Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
At the same time, the characteristics of acupuncture should be fully considered to make the acupuncture intervention more pertinent. COVID-19 is one of the “five epidemics” and is generally susceptible. “all are easy to be infected, regardless of age, and the symptoms are similar.”
The epidemic came into human body through mouth and nose, and most of them invade the lung first, then the spleen, stomach, and large intestine, and the lesions were relatively mild;
a small proportion of them pass to the pericardium, liver, and kidney, and became critically ill.
The disease changes rapidly and has a clear core pathogenesis and syndrome evolution.
Acupuncture will stimulate the acupoints on the limbs through the meridian internal viscera and outer collateral branches, and directly smash the nidus to stimulate and strengthen the viscera and its Qi, so that the invading evil of epidemics can be separated and expelled.
Acupuncture is also to stimulate the Qi while improving self-protection of the viscera, and to reduce the damage of the organs caused by the epidemic.
ⅲ) The acupuncture intervention, according to the evolution of the pathogenesis, will be divided into three phases – medical observation phase, clinical treatment phase, and convalescence phase.
Through the differentiation of the syndromes of organs and meridians, the treatment will mainly apply on main acupoints matching with other acupoints according to clinical symptoms, with respect of the principle of “less is more”.
Acupuncture and moxibustion operation will be selected as appropriate according to the specific conditions, following the principle of convenient, simple, safe and effective.
We shall create suitable conditions and strive to play the role of acupuncture in all clinical stages. Acupuncture can be used together with herbal medicine in the clinical treatment phase to play the synergy role of acupuncture.
Treatment of the recovering patients should give full play the core role of acupuncture.
We recommended to establish new acupuncture-based rehabilitation clinics for COVID-19.
v) The choice of acupoints and methods draws on the evidence from ancient literatures, modern clinical and basic researches, and incorporates acupuncture research results shown in previous studies of improving lung function, regulating innate immunity, anti-inflammatory and proinflammatory factors, activating the vagal-cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway and regulating the respiratory system and overcoming the damage of lung inflammation.
ⅴ) Under the guidance of acupuncture professionals, patients should be encouraged to carry out moxibustion, acupoint application, acupoint massage, etc., by using the Internet, mobile terminals and related APPs, WeChat, etc., to achieve auxiliary disease treatment and promote physical and mental rehabilitation.
Pay attention to the doctor-patient communication and follow-up, as well as the collection, summary, analysis of diagnosis and treatment data in a timely and wholly order.
2. Methods of acupuncture and moxibustion intervention
ⅰ) Acupuncture and moxibustion intervention during the phase of medical observation (suspected cases)
Objective: to stimulate the vital Qi and the functions of lung and spleen, and to dispel, separate and remove the pathogens of pestilence, to enhance the defense of viscera against the pathogens.
ⅱ) Acupuncture and moxibustion intervention during the phase of clinical treatment (confirmed cases)
Objective: to stimulate the vital Qi of lung and spleen, to protect the viscera and reduce damage, to dispel the perverse of pathogens, and to “reinforce the earth to generate metal /gold”, to stop the tendency of the disease, lighten the mood, to enhance the confidence to overcome the disease.
ⅲ) Acupuncture and moxibustion intervention during convalescence
Objective: to remove residual virus, restore vitality, to repair functions of viscera such as lung and spleen.
3. Home acupuncture and moxibustion intervention under the guidance of those who know
To help prevent and control the epidemic of COVID-19, while reducing going out, avoiding cross-infection, blocking the source of infection, and ensuring safety, patients who are under home quarantine and discharged from hospital can perform acupuncture-moxibustion intervention through online clinic, guidance, and science popularization and education, under the guidance of professionals.
Can pinch the GV 14 point – see to the right. Wake it up!!!!
Moxibustion therapy: self-moxibustion on Zusanli (ST36), I would also add in GV 14 – where that bump that appears. Each moxibustion takes about 5 minutes.
Application therapy: apply moxibustion hot paste or warming moxibustion cream to apply on points such as Zusanli (ST36), Neiguan (PC6), Qihai (CV6), Guanyuan (CV4), Feishu (BLl3), Fengmen (BLl2), Pishu (BL20), Dazhui (GVl4).
Meridian massage: use methods like kneading, pressing, rubbing, tapping, patting on the lung and heart meridian of upper limb, spleen and stomach meridian below the knee. 15-20 minutes for each operation. It is appropriate to have soreness at the operated part.
Choose appropriate traditional exercises, such as Yi Jin Jing (Muscle/Tendon Change Classic), Tai Chi, Ba Duan Jin (Eight Pieces Brocade), Wu Qin Xi (Five Animal Exercise), etc., based on one’s recovery situation.
Practice once a day, 15-30 minutes each time.
Mental health: Adjust one’s emotions. It can be used with auricular points (massage all of your own ear), moxibustion, massage, medicated diet, herbal tea, herbal bath, music and other methods to relax both physically and mentally, to relieve anxiety or to aid sleep.
Foot bath: Select Chinese herbs with the function of dispelling wind and heat, eliminating pathogens. Epsom salts is fine . . a foot bath, add some warm water, wait until it cools down to about 38 ~ 45 ℃, soak for about 30 minutes’.
Breathing – can’t live without it
Water – same – pure, not from tap – and non chilled – as the weather gets cooler – best to be body temperature.
Safety – There is the key – after all bush fires – now now.
When all stop and take a breath – ‘herd immunity’ which is a NEW (‘made-up’?) thing – BUT – we have no immunity for this new man made terror. We must all get a grip.
OUR innate defenses yet needs us to help it. Calm down . . .
Peacefully improve your own health defenses.
Listening to the official ‘health’ officers who are guessing, we are back to what always worked – the sanitation issues – and overpopulation (hence self isolation) – which is what allows most disease to bite.
Your immune strength is what keeps you on the planet – health – ability to adapt to change.
Stay freaked out?
Or look after yourself better?
Energy follows thought – perceptions. . .
The physical world that we live in is nothing more than an enormous ocean of energy that materializes and dematerializes within seconds repeatedly. Nothing in this world is solid and most people do not understand it.
33+ years ago when I had the ‘diagnosis’ for my then baby daughter – massive brain injury and likely to die soon – I discovered that if and when I treated her (and thought of her) as a ‘normal’ baby – she massively shifted her behaviour. I found that I was in charge – I was scripting this. No different here folks! A message of hope and life – our own immune systems can fight off almost anything – when we are being life-ful – not fearful.
Everything we see in this physical world began as an idea and continued to grow until it was materialized into a physical object. We literally become our most frequent thoughts. Your life becomes what it is imagined to be, within reason. The world could be considered your mirror if you really break things down.
We are tissues and organs that are made of cells, those cells are made of molecules, those molecules are made of atoms, and those atoms are made of sub-atomic particles. What makes a sub-atomic particle? Energy, we are energy! The body itself is an effect created by cause, that cause is thought. So many doors begin to open when you see the Universe for what it really is.
A VIRUS? They mutate – so forget about a vaccine – like no ‘cure’ for the common cold – we need to have a gut that works. .
Get some kimchi/sauerkraut/kefir and get started – re colonise YOUR gut!!!
NO sugar – causes inflammation – as does all that fear and rage . .
and . . .
The way we see things can and will change the way this world manifests itself for us.
Maybe watch the presentations I have here?
Water – needs to be the best possible .
as I am always suggesting at least 3 litres daily.
You do not need all that is coming in through the pipes – but do need minerals.
I use in clinic this company – once the 4 cylinders are installed under – you are set for at least a year of great water.
Water filter – Free Call: 1300 137 011
Minerals – and also the Ultra Boost get that at least – as this will clear up any ‘bug’ (including clear cancer possibilities) – take 1 tsp at night – in a little liquid – it is foul tasting (all good medicine possibly is) – and works a treat. If ill – take 1 tsp an hour and go to bed – will be on and off loo – as it has a loosening affect – but also – knocks bugs OUT! Where to get these? From Leslie at Amena’s
Get the targeted care ointment at the same time – apply ‘one molecule thick’ that is hardly at all – and you will be amazed at the difference in your skin – esp good for all skin issues – cancers especially.
As is painting with Lugols’ solution (15%) – if you have it – skin tags, moles, aging spots – all need to be reminded that wellness starts with iodine – as it is in charge of programmed cell death – hence – again that ‘C’ word!! Iodine? See more here.
Glutathione – so needed now- more than ever – get 3 month’s worth and you are covered for loss of energy/clarity and sense of purpose – seriously – when you are struggling – here is the anti oxidant, anti inflammatory and anti aging supplement – that your body could and should be making – but maybe not.
Everyone who sees me should be on it – as almost all have an Iodine depletion – the fluoridated water has done in the thyroid function and the lack of energy/ clarity – is mostly related to this – and all else follows – downhill – including the Damp and the Phlegm and the Fat and the Fluid that follows.
Order yours now. Links here.
This will tide you over.
Remember to take your AID and OGF regularly, as a healthy and robust immune system is your best defense against the virus. Stay at home if you can, practice social distancing, and don’t touch your face until you have thoroughly washed your hands with soap and water. (This last one may be tricky, as most people touch their faces often).
