tonsillitis / congestion / sore throat
I have what feels like a case of tonsillitis (congestion, sore throat, painful swallowing, 100.2 fever) something I haven’t had since I was 9 or 10. I am going to see somebody today or tomorrow (my neighbors are a former nurse and a former emergency room nurse), but also wanted to ask about JSJ holds.
The go-to flow for tonsillitis is this: Left hand holds left calf (low 8) and right hand holds the left outer heel (16). Switch sides. This hold is also said to be good for asthma, bronchitis, nausea, lateral (outer) leg from knee on down disorder, bunions, callouses on the bottom of feet.
Other holds I have noted for sore throat/tonsillitis are:
• Hold across shoulder (3) with same side groin (15); eg. right hand holds left shoulder, left hand holds left groin. Switch sides. Also good for fever or any other immune system challenges.
• Hold same-side shoulder (11) with opposite chest (13); left hand holds left shoulder, right hand holds right chest. Switch sides. This one is most effective when done at the first sign of a sore throat.
• Hold base of skull (4s) both sides or hold across 4 with opposite cheek (21), then switch. Also good for congestion.
Try all flows and see which one(s) feel right to you. Then do it consistently for a few days or until symptoms change.
