As I have mentioned in previous articles, one of the benefits of 423 Meridian Qi Gong is the freedom it gives you to tailor the various techniques to suit your individual needs. To help you better understand how to do this we have set out some health issues that many women, whether they are young, middle aged or mature may find they are faced with. All of these ways of enhancing the health of specific organs are currently used by many of Prof. Liu’s female patients. First, however there are 2 rules that must be observed.
RULE 1. If you are treating a current health problem, increase the number of times you activate the relevant pressure points, and increase the time you spend activating those points.
RULE 2. The more severe the problem, the greater the incremental changes should be.
For all women the two critical points are San Yin Jiao (spleen 6) and Zu San Li (stomach 36). The other two points Nei Guan (pericardium 6) and He Gu (large intestine 4) will be explored in more detail in the next article.
1. San Yin Jiao (spleen 6)
San yin Jiao is located just above the ankle on the inside of each leg. This point is the intersection of the spleen, liver and kidney meridians, so is of special interest to women as it directly and effectively affects these organs. The liver and kidneys have been found to have a direct effect on hormone metabolism. This point is largely responsible for regulating and maintaining a healthy hormone balance. The importance of this point in womens’
health cannot be over stressed.
Women who frequently suffer from period pain, irregular periods or periods that are too light or too heavy/too long or too short, have gained a significant benefit from massaging Sa Yin Jiao more often and/or for longer than the time suggested for normal health maintenance. It has also been found to be very useful in preventing and treating problems related to the female reproductive system, and in particular the uterus.
Hormone imbalance is a surprisingly common problem faced by women of all ages as hormones influence a lot of organs. Women suffering hormone imbalances can suffer Depression, or be withdrawn or temperamental. Some other more common problems, such as dry skin, loss of skin elasticity, wrinkles, and uneven skin color, low energy levels, and loss of interest in sex, are also found to be associated with hormone imbalance. Women going through menopause are at more risk of experiencing many of these problems at the same time.
Using the techniques learned in 423 Meridian Qi Gong and increasing the time and/or frequency spent activating San Yin Jiao will greatly improve your body’s ability to prevent or treat these problems. The key is if you are treating a current problem, INCREASE THE NUMBER OF TIMES YOU PERFORM THE TECHNIQUE AND INCREASE THE TIME YOU SPEND ON THE TECHNIQUE. Remember that even if you are on medication you can still safely use any meridian pressure points to improve your health.
Use this important meridian point to prevent health problems or to treat yourself with your own tailor made 423 Meridian Qi Gong program.
2. Zu San Li (stomach 36)
Zu San Li is situated just below the knee on the outside of each leg. This point has a major effect on boosting the immune system. Recent research in China has shown that this is the best point for boosting the immune system in women and men of all ages. More than 90% percent of all people tested showed significant immune system gains in blood tests done immediately after this point was activated. This has direct implications for women’s health.
A deficiency in the immune system can cause MUSCLE PAIN, and pain in the knees, ankles, elbow or shoulders this is often diagnosed as the onset of arthritis or as arthritis. If the pain moves around or comes and goes, you know the real culprit is an immune system deficiency, not arthritis. Increase the time and frequency you spend activating Zu San Li. The bigger the problem the more time you need to invest to treat the problem. You can adjust to suit your needs, as your health starts to improve so you can reduce the time and frequency to suit your improved health situation.
The importance of a strong immune system to aid in the prevention and treatment of health problems of all kinds regardless of age cannot be ignored. If you have deficiencies in your immune system you can use 423 Meridian Qi Gong to treat them, or you can use 423 Meridian Qi Gong to improve your immune system in order to avoid these problems. Your immune system is a major part of your body’s defense system. UTILIZE IT, MAKE IT WORK FOR YOUR BENEFIT.
Make sure you catch the second half of this report on treating WOMEN’S HEALTH ISSUES so that you can learn where the other 2 pressure points fit in to the 423 Meridian Qi Gong system. It is safe to use this system even if you are on medication or receiving other treatment. The greater the challenge the greater the increase. If you are using the system primarily as a preventive measure, Congratulations! Prevention is better than cure! All you need to do is to follow the times and frequency as they are demonstrated in the DVD. Assess your own health risks – they ARE personal and unique to you. Only you know what they are, and it’s up to you to adjust your 423 Meridian Qi Gong routine to suit.
