Acupuncture is the fifth branch of traditional Chinese medicine and it is based on the idea of energy flow. By stimulating specific points in the body, it helps it heal, soothe and revive. Discover the point that helps eliminate toxins from the colon, among other benefits.
This study was made by an American expert in acupuncture and acupressure, Michael Reed Gach, who arrived at the conclusion that stimulation of a point placed below your belly button could bring much benefit.
The “sea of energy”
The name may mean nothing but this point is curiously named as the “sea of energy” or “CV6” and it is placed 1 inch below your belly button. According to Dr. Reed Gach, if you press it, it stimulates your gut and causes an urge to “empty you stomach”. A curious way to provoke the urge to go to the bathroom, but here’s the scientific explanation:
According to experts in acupressure, this allows you to empty all the bad energy and toxins from your body which have been accumulated due to stress. It also helps relieve constipation drastically and stimulates your digestive functions. More spectacularly, this could trigger orgasm. And yes, you never thought that a single boost of the point of your body could bring many benefits!
The fact is that acupressure on this specific area of your abdomen frees energy and eliminates accumulated toxins. It relaxes the bowels and facilitates the ejection of waste through the feces. This technique could also, according to the expert, relieve rectal pain, menstrual cramps, bloating and digestive problems.
Put this into practice
The technique is simple: press the point located 1 inch below your navel by exerting pressure with three fingers. Take a deep breath while doing so. Release by exhaling and repeat until you feel the urge to go to the bathroom.
