Your Mom Was Right: Wear a Scarf!

According to Chinese medicine, the common cold and influenza begin as exterior pathogens that enter your body when your immune system isn't robust.  Normally, your wei qi, or protective energy, keeps this "wind" energy from penetrating the outermost energetic level of your body.  The area that is most susceptible to cold wind, is a channel that runs along the back of your neck.  So along with sleeping well, eating well, staying calm and washing your hands, be sure to keep your neck warm and covered!
