In Chinese medicine there's a concept called wei qi - a kind of energetic barrier that protects us from pathogens. In this episode, Erik introduces a variety of tools and techniques that you can use at home to help boost your wei qi and prevent infection as the weather gets colder. Included in the discussion are guasha (skin scraping), fire cupping, moxabustion, herbs and vitamins. You'll also learn how to make your own immunity tincture. This recording was excerpted from a lecture given at Collaborative Natural Health Partners in Manchester, CT in October 2019.  Stay tuned at the end for a meditative moment focused on immunity.  You can become a supporter on Anchor for as little as $0.99 a month or at our Healing is in Your Hands Patreon!  Patreon subscribers get access to additional content.

With a global pandemic, gun violence, sometimes violent clashes between protesters and police, wildfires in California, devastating storms in the Gulf Coast and more, there’s an elevated level of fear in our country and on our planet that can prevent us from focusing on love and moving forward in life with ease. In this episode, Erik and Kim share their insights on coping with fear in our current climate. Several of our previous guests have been kind enough to share their thoughts as well.

In this episode, Kim goes on a 6,000-mile round trip journey to Northern Ireland to meet our incredible guest, Amanda McTaggart. Amanda has a rare connective tissue disorder called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS).  EDS affects every function in Amanda's body and causes severe pain, dislocations, heart problems, stomach issues, sleep disturbance, lack of concentration and overall poor mobility. She has a long list of other severe conditions that are connected to her EDS. Amanda’s situation is so severe that she is at risk of rupturing any large organ or artery at any time. Her five year-old son Ethan also exhibits some traits of this condition.  Despite all this, as you'll hear, Amanda is warm, bright and resilient.  There are no specialists who can treat Amanda's condition in Ireland, so she must travel to London every eight weeks to meet with her medical team. Amanda's treatment is not covered by the British National Health System, so she relies on crowdfunding to keep going. Visit Amanda's Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/action4amanda/) for updates and her Go Fund Me (https://www.gofundme.com/f/action-4-amanda) page to help out. Get in touch at action4amanda@hotmail.com.  Do you or someone you love have EDS? If so let us know. We want to hear about your journey and how Amanda’s story touched you. You can use the Anchor app to leave us an audio message. Or, use your phone’s voice memo app to record a message and email it to us at healingisinyourhands@gmail.com. We’d love to hear from you, and you may hear yourself on a future episode of Healing is in Your Hands.
