Blog Posted on June 10, 2007 : Sinus, Dark Eye Circles and Dull Skin
Hi all. It has been a very busy week for me working from day to night, answering listeners' questions and blending
It's all worth it because I received a number of feedback on recovery from sinus, cough, back pain problems.
Across the causeway from JB, I received a small note from a lady yesterday. She told me her skin had improved
after using the serum. I am very happy for sll of you.
SINUS (COOLING AND HEAT TYPE)
Symptoms include fullness behind head congestion, excess mucus, facial pain, headaches, non-stop sneezing and blocked nose.
What you should avoid:
Do not blow your nose violently. Instead blow out through one nostril then the other, not together.
The sudden pressure in your ears can push bacteria back into sinuses.
Alcohol and heaty foodstuff causes the "Ki" to flow upwards, which delay healing process.
- Too much cooling food also causes the body to weaken and takes longer to heal.
This is a very tricky problem. I have a client who had seen many doctors and even went for operations but the
condition is still the same. After doing simple acupressure and using the following 2 oils, he is much better now.
Aromatherapy Method (especially effective for kids):
For emergency applications:
1 drop of Lavendula Vera and 1 drop of Eucalytus Radiata onto a piece of tissue paper and inhale deeply.
Rub the tissue on your upper back, and with a hairdryer, warm your upper back.
2-4 drops of Lavendula Vera and 2 drops Euclayptus Radiata into a small jar of "Vicks" ointment (most convenient),
or 30ml Aloe Vera gel. Mix well with a wooden toothpick and leave overnight.
To use, apply some onto the chest and upper back area, rub gently. With some of the leftover on your fingers,
apply a bit under the nose. Use a hairdryer to warm the upper back for a while.
- Apply acupressure on the Ying Xiang (Welcome Fragrance) Points (see illustration) twice a day everyday. Press
the points for 6 seconds, release, and repeat for 2 mins.
People who have sinus problems should stop eating fruits and cold drinks after 6pm. I have suggested many to
observe this for a week and they have found improvement. Your sinus will be difficult to heal even if you take
Chinese medicine but do not observe the Yin and Yang elements of the food.
