Immune System Day

9 a.m. to 11 a.m., Monday

The sun, Earth and moon will be in alignment on Monday. Grandmaster Hong balances this energy with herbal patches and easy lung exercises to enhance the immune system for asthma, allergies, respiratory colds and vog relief. One day will have an effect on all 365 days. The principles derive from a 5,000 year old natural health care system which includes recipes, teas and natural foods. The nonprofit Qi Center welcomes all to attend this fifth annual event which is co-sponsored by the University of Hawai‘i. As part of the organization’s mission to provide complementary and integrative approaches for health, it is hoped that this event will make a contribution to the health of Hawai‘i’s people.
