Children today are accustomed to indoor play more than out. Cell phones have taken the place of jumping rope and video games have taken the place of hopscotch. In the good ‘ol days, kids were able to naturally boost their immune systems without even knowing they were doing so.

Here are a few simple tips to give your kids an immune system boost–the old fashioned way:

  1. Play Hopscotch and Jump Rope: The center of the foot is a major energy point for the Kidney. Playing hopscotch and jumping rope encourages stomping and jumping, which stimulates this point and the immune system.
  2. Make a Human Bicycle: Have two kids lay flat on the floor facing each other with the soles of their feet touching. Using coordinated movements, have them turn their legs in a bicycle-like motion. Touching soles of the feet helps the kids stimulate each other’s Kidney point. The bicycle movement allows continued stimulation.
