If You Press This Point On Your Foot For 2 Minutes Everyday For A Month THIS Happens To Your Body

There’s an endless and ongoing search for natural methods and alternative medicines which could help treat the many different health conditions and disorders we experience throughout life. People don’t want to always have to rely on modern health options, which tend to involve harsh and expensive pharmaceuticals that often have even worse side effects than the actual issue itself. That’s why so many people are turning to homeopathic remedies in an effort to naturally balance and help heal their body, mind, and spirits.

Out of all the many different treatment methods, one of the top most popular and effective ones come from the ancient Chinese alternative medicine field of acupressure. In a nutshell, acupressure involves the simple act of applying pressure to various points on our bodies and it does wonders to alleviate the aches, pains, tension, and built up stresses on our bodies.

Acupressure works by stimulating the thousands of nerves in our hands and feet, thereby increasing blood flow. The average human foot has over 15,000 nerves and they all inter-connect to form a network that reaches different areas of the body, such as our main organs and glands.

Many people have found that by using simple acupressure techniques at home they could dramatically relieve pain and discomfort caused by common ailments. All you have to do is find the points on your feet which are associated with the area in which your issue stems from and massage it!

One such point is called the Tai Chong, or LV3 point, which is known for being an effective full-body health booster. To locate the area on your foot go to the gap between your big toe and second toe, move two finger widths back from there, and you should feel a slight depression- that’s the point! So if you feel a hard bone, keep looking because it’s a soft area. By pressing down and applying pressure to this point for at least 2 minutes several times a day, it helps to relieve:

Stress and Anxiety- According to WebMD studies have been done which suggest that the LV3 point helps lessen the negative impacts of depression and anxiety, possibly by lowering subjects overall stress levels and instances of insomnia

Digestion- Nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, hangovers, and indigestion can all be eliminated or improved by massaging the LV3 point, so try it the next time you ever happen to drink too much!

Pain Killer- The LV3 point has been used to alleviate abdominal pain, back pain, menstrual cramps, headaches, and since the point is connected to the liver meridian and lower back it’s also effective at relieving many other sources of bodily pain.

Fight Parkinson’s Disease- There is a report out by the Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation which says that “Acupuncture point LV3 has been historically used to treat tremors such as those associated with Parkinson’s disease.” Of course, this involves acupuncture rather than acupressure at the sight, but nonetheless it shows how the point has been used for thousands of years to improve people’s health and even today it could greatly impact modern diseases.

There you have it, a great way for you to massage your body to better health and all you have to do is rub your feet a couple times a day or before bedtime. You’ll automatically feel more relaxed and at ease and while it may sound too good to be true, a daily foot massage may be just what your body needs. Try it tonight and share this with others to help them find comfort and better health in their own lives!
