Day 4 of the 5-Day Meridian Reset
Day 4 is all about boosting our immunity!
This is the perfect time of year to give our immune system some extra support. As we gather for the holidays, we share the love and the germs!
Everything is amplified during the holidays - the good and the bad! Also, most of us are eating more sugar and other foods that we limit the rest of the year and this can also affect our immune system.
Regardless of the source, extra stress leaves us more vulnerable to catching a cold or flu.
Make sure that you and your family are staying well hydrated and are taking adequate Vitamin D3 & K2. Research shows that vitamin K2 helps with the absorption & bioavailability of vitamin D3 and it is recommended that they're taken together.
After my super stressful Day 3, the Day 4 Immune Support was perfectly timed!
Here's How to Patch for Day 4
- 2 Energy Enhancer Patches (one white and one tan)
- 1 Aeon Patch
- 1 Glutathione Patch
- 1 Carnosine Patch
Energy Enhancers on Lung 7 and Large Intestine 4
For day 4, place the tan Energy Enhancer on Lung 7 (LU 7) on the right wrist, which helps support healthy immunity and respiration. It is also known for helping with cough, cold, and sore throat.
Then place the white Energy Enhancer Patch on Large Intestine 4 (LI 4) on the right hand. This point is also helpful for supporting healthy immunity. It can relieve a stuffy nose, sinus headache, or toothache. It is often paired with Liver 3 (see picture below) to help the Qi or energy in the body flow smoothly and release pent up emotions.
Day 1 - 5 Aeon Patch on Du 14
Again, I'd wear Aeon on Du 14 on the back of the neck, which opens up the meridians on the back. It's also great for any type of neck and shoulder pain. Or if you're fighting off a cold or have a fever. However, I put the Aeon patch at TB 17 for stress again (see photo below). Either point is fine!
Days 1 - 5 Glutathione on CV 6
Then I added a Glutathione patch on CV 6 below, which opens up the meridians on the front of the body. CV 6 is a great point for strengthening the body and supporting healthy digestion. The Glutathione patch is GREAT for immune support and detox.
Carnosine on CV 17 on Nights 1 - 5
At night, I'll take the patches above and just wear one Carnosine patch at CV 17 on the chest. Carnosine helps with cellular regeneration, memory and so much more! That's why it's great to wear at night.
Points for Stress - TB 17 & LV 3
All I can say is I'm so grateful I was already doing this reset because I needed all the energetic support I could during that stressful time.
I continued with the reset but also used a few additional patches on day three and four to help clear the stress from my mind and body so that I could bounce back quickly.
Here's what I did to manage my stress:
I moved the Aeon from the back of my neck to behind my ear on a point called Triple Burner 17.
I used this point because a branch of the vagus nerve runs through that area. One of the most important jobs of the vagus nerve is to "turn off" the stress response once the stressor is gone. As soon as I put the Aeon patch on that point, I could feel my body finally relax.
Then I added Energy Enhancers on Liver 3 between the big toe and second toe. Liver 3 is a point that is traditionally used for emotional balance and is especially good for issues related to anger and severe emotional upset.
While I'm not thrilled I had such a stressful day, it did serve as a learning opportunity. If you decide to the reset, stuff happens. But, these techniques are adaptable to whatever you're going through.
Unlike other cleanses where it's difficult to continue when something stressful happens, the meridian reset is simple and fast to do so it can help you no matter what's going on. And you're fell so much better for continuing it!
Who Can Do the Reset?
This reset is great for before or after the holidays or BOTH! Adults and children can do the reset as well! Everyone can benefit from having their meridians balanced. You can do the reset as often as needed, and especially after an illness or stress period of time.
For the best results, drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated! Let me know if you have any questions.
