Lately I got Covid-19, I felt terrible and can’t teach at all. I lied in bed for 1.5 week with headache, muscle pains, coughing and fatigue. Worst of all, I was allergic to all the medication and in the end I had to give up taking pills. The moment I decided not to take any pills, I started my own yin yoga practice, pranayama, immunity meditation and healing meditation. As I meditated, my headache stopped and I felt no pain. That’s the moment I knew, meditation can help me with my own immunity and nerve system. I plan to share my self-practice mediation on my website in the future. Once it is ready, I will share it with you guys immediately.
I also practiced pranayama to enhance my lung capacity and bring more oxygen into our body. When we are weak, we tend to forget we can heal our body through pranayama. Once I started my breath work, I immediately felt better. We all have our self-healing ability, and it is a gift, all we need to do is activate it via yoga, pranayama and meditation.
In my website, I have listed TCM for lungs and liver. Inside those free download files, I listed the acupuncture points, nutritions and yin yoga poses, and I exactly used those content to help myself to heal and I hope it can benefit you too.
Beside yoga, I also tried the following methods,
Golden milk: I put 1 teaspoon each of tumeric, cumin, cinnamon and honey to the milk and simmer it together. Drink it when it is warm. (you can adjust to the flavor you like)
I cooked congee with ginger and add some proteins together to heal my stomach. Sometimes just congee with ginger, nothing else.
Intake a lot of Vitamin C, D, Zinc.
Drink 2-3 liters of water everyday. Water is the key, don’t underestimate it.
Wear socks and deep your feet in warm water everyday. There are 6-7 meridians going through our feet and it is important to keep the blood flow healthy to restore or gain energy.
Listen to 432hz or 538hz music to heal or while you meditate.
Practice yin yoga, pranayayma and meditation.
Use Gua Sha to massage lungs, gallbladders, liver, kidneys, meridians to ease your coughing and fatigue.
Try not to always lie in bed, find a chance to do stretches or yin yoga in bed or walk a bit. It will always benefit you.
I am not sure which one helped me to recover, but I do hope those experiences of mine can help you to get through COVID. All the best to you!
