It takes a whole village of points to raise one Qi jacket! Here’s how I think about it: The Earth element nourishes the Metal element. So, I use Stomach 36 to boost the Earth, insuring that it has plenty to give to Metal. Large Intestine 10 is a Metal point. It relates to ST 36 because it is in a similar location, except it is near the elbow instead of the knee. Then, add in Lung 1, 2 and 7, and you have a great group of points to support the Wei Qi.
Remember, we want to boost the Wei Qi in order to prevent colds and flus. It is always easier to put on your jacket than it is to deal with a nasty cold or flu!
