When I was 5 or 6 years old, I fell asleep in front of a large fan on a hot summer night at my aunt's home. That morning I when I woke up my throat was nearly closing up, congested, and could hardly breathe if I coughed in the slightest. (I was/am prone to respiratory..bronchitis/asthma) She rushed me to her doctor, who took off my shoe and sock, barely touched the sole of my foot. I believe it was my right foot, but can't swear to it now- lol been a long time, and instantly, my throat cleared up! That's it.. Nothing else had to be done. No one ever mentioned it again.. Not to me anyway, and I only began hearing about acupressure in the last 15 years or so.. So, I believe that doctor was ahead of his time. I wish all doctors were into natural/homeopathic remedies today. Anyway, that's my one and only experience.
I just found this site, and I love it. Thank you very much.
