How I Stopped A Cold In One Day

On Tuesday I was in an air-conditioned office for several hours with about 20 other people. Some were coughing and sniffling and blowing their nose the whole time.

I rarely get colds but the next day I woke and could feel something going on - stuffy nose, sore eyes and a dull, heavy head.

To make it worse, in the town where I live here in China there is a lot of roadwork and construction going on right now. There's dust in the air and on everything. It made my nose and eyes feel worse.

Here's what I did about it:

1. Sipped hot water with fresh lemon juice throughout the day.

2. Ate simple, bland food only, like soup, steamed vegetables and rice congee.

3. Dry-brushed my skin morning, afternoon and night.

4. Did acupressure on my face and hands.

I woke the next day and felt great with not one cold symptom. That was 2 days ago. Now I can't guarantee you can stop your next cold in one day but the above tips should help you.

To find out how to do skin brushing (which has many other benefits too) see my skin brushing report. And you can see how to do acupressure and other techniques and tips for colds in the

online video program.

Any questions, as always just let me know. By the way, when you get the cold program the skin brushing report is complimentary.

All the best,
