Acid reflux

I often talk about Pancreas being the most overlooked organ in the body. But there is another organ which is overlooked called Pericardium. Pericardium protects the Heart. When cardiovascular diseases are looked at, Pericardium is always overlooked. However, it is an important organ in TICM and is often treated to heal Heart conditions plus much more.

In TICM, the Pericardium begins from the tip of the middle finger up through the arm to the chest. On the inner wrist sits P6 called Inner Pass in English.

This point has many amazing uses, one being helping acid reflux, heartburn or GERD. When you stimulate the point along the meridian it helps to send signals of energy to promote digestion and calm the body. This point is also known to relieve nausea, clear heat, calms the Spirit, relieves anxiety and depression, regulates the Heart, unbinds the chest and regulates vital energy in the body.

To locate the point which is between the tendons of the inner wrist, 3 finger widths up from the inner crease of the wrist.

Stimulate the point by either rubbing or pressing for 3-5 minutes on each side 2-3 times per day.

Also if you do not wish to take things such as nexium, gaviscon etc, why not try putting a teaspoon of bicarbonate soda in a glass of room temperature or warm water and drink 30 minutes before your meal.

Please do remember, mainstream has taught us that acid reflux occurs due to too much acid. This is incorrect. It can also occur due to too little Stomach acid.
