Acupressure for diabetes


Help yourself with some acupressure with point Kidney 2 (KID2) also known as Blazing Valley. This point is all about warmth and connection, which is what the Kidney loves. It also helps to clear excess from the body. This point is about the following: "As the Water passes through this valley, it is warmed to the perfect temperature so that it can flow to, and be used by, every part of the body, as well as to the mind and spirit. The body cannot function if the fluids are too cold”. Symptoms you can use KID2 point for: diabetes, insomnia, night sweats, sore throat, dryness, asthma, itching, coldness, fertility, fear, anxiety and disconnection. This point is located on the inside of our foot in a depression on the lower border of the bone located on the top inner side of the middle of the foot. Simply, it is where your darker and lighter skin colours meet. Use the edge of your gua sha tool or your finger. If using your finger press hard 5-8 times once daily. Do this on both feet. According to the oldest book on clinical specific acupuncture, this is the number one influential point for diabetes. It is said when there is sickness for a long time, it gets into the Luo channel. KID2 point is the Luo connecting point, so it can clear stagnated energy in the Luo to treat the disease. A study (1) suggests that these ingredients (wild crafted Huang Lian (Rhizoma coptidis) and Rou Gui (Cinnamomum cassia) can improve type 2 diabetes by improving beta cell function and reducing insulin resistance in diabetic rats along with oxidative stress. 1: https://care.diabetesjournals.org/content/33/1/e8
