The Immune System Workout


Seven Minutes - Twice a week or when developing an illness

Immunity, the body’s ability to resist infection, can be inherited genetically or acquired through exposure or inoculation. When the body develops an infection, it triggers the formation of antibodies, the substances that fight germs. Immunity to a disease exists when the body’s defense system contains antibodies to that disease, but immunity can be adversely affected when the body’s physical condition is poor. Inadequate diet, stress, and exhaustion deplete the body’s resources and weaken the immune system. At times, antibodies to certain illnesses, that is certain micro-organisms, seem to neutralize the body’s immune system. Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, better known as AIDS, is one example of this type of systemic failure.

The Immune System Workout is designed to stimulate the parts of the body that are most responsible for fighting disease. Try it when you feel a cold or flu coming on: it might not stop the illness, but it will probably decrease its duration and severity. Stimulate the reflex areas with your fingers in the order listed below, visualizing the parts you are stimulating and coordinating the pressure with your breathing. Start with the first reflex area on the left hand, then move over to the same reflex on the right hand.
 

1. The solar plexus reflexes (seven times each, left and right sides) stimulate the solar plexus to strengthen abdominal responses and set up a good breathing pattern.

2. The spleen reflex (seven times, left side only) stimulates the spleen to perform its specific immunological functions, while recycling red blood cells.

3. The liver reflex (seven times, right side only) prompts the liver to filter wastes and produce antibodies, tasks vital to the body’s defense system.

4. Kidney reflexes (seven times each, left and right sides) speed up purification of the blood by prompting the kidneys to process toxic wastes.

5. The intestine reflexes (seven times each, left and right sides) spur the intestines to dispose of toxins and wastes from the body.

6. The lymphatic system reflexes (seven times each, left and right sides) mobilize the lymph nodes to release disease-fighting cells throughout the body to provide a vital line of defense against infection.

* Start your work-out with solar plexus reflexes and end with solar plexus reflexes.
