Constipation is not normal even though patients tell me it is normal. You must open bowels every day at least once. It should be an easy flow, complete evacuation in one sitting, not take too long, no pain, no discomfort, no blood, no mucous, slight smell, no undigested food, nice shade of brown, nice soft serve ice cream look. If you are constipated, try the following:
Rub belly 37 times anti-clockwise.
Use your fist to stimulate the Ren Mai meridian, which is your centre line. Do this for 3-5 minutes.
Use your fist to stimulate the Large Intestine meridian. Move downwards for 3-5 minutes on each arm.
Swing your arm outwards to further exercise the Large Intestine channel for 3-5 minutes on each side.
Rubbing the Stomach and stimulating the Ren Mai treats poor digestion and helps movement of the bowels.
If constipation is present, it is signalling imbalance in the Large Intestine, that is why it's important to stimulate this meridian to remove stagnation.
