Given the concerns about the Coronavirus in Sri Lanka, Health Capsule thought it is apt to underscore the benefits of using acupressure to boost the immune system at a challenging time like this.  Our resource person for the article is Deshamanya Dr. Cyril Antony  who is a qualified practitioner of alternative medicine.

 

 

Acupressure is an alternative medicine technique that is based on the concept of life energy which flows through meridians in the body. Acupressure is an ancient healing art that involves pressing potent points on the whole body surface. In the past this system had been used by most civilizations. It was found not only in South Asia but and Far East, but also in the Middle East and South America. It was well developed in India and Sri Lanka. It works by stimulating the body’s curative abilities.  Acupoints used in treatment may or may not be in the same area of the body as the targeted symptom. 


Acupressure can be used to cure ailments such as following; headache, fever, common cold, kidney disorders, heart disease and other disorders of excretory, nervous, respiratory and circulatory systems, and arthritis, diabetes, obesity and shoulder, back and knee disorders, varicose veins etc.

In addition, acupressure serves well in increasing immunity. This works by strengthening natural resistance to disease. Therefore acupressure can be successfully applied to recover from conditions like influenzas, common cold, cough and lung problems. 


There are various acupressure points recognised to increase immunity and recover from related ailments. Some of those points are listed below. A person can do self-treatment by pressing these points.

    Thank you, Dr. Anthony. I found the sane point (LI4) useful for both toothache, Rheumatid Arthritis and Immunity (specifically Covid 19). Thank you for your guidance, brother. Hallelujah!
