Best Life Media will publish a new book on natural healing by Ilchi Lee on July 11, 2016. This 152-page paperback, Belly Button Healing: Unlocking the Second Brain for a Healthy Life by Ilchi Lee, describes a novel method of self-healing ideal for anyone who wants more vitality, compassion, and connection.
Belly Button Healing is a holistic method with roots in Eastern medicine. It has parallels with acupressure massage, lymphatic massage, and myofascial relief. As the title suggests, the method focuses on the belly button, whose healing significance comes from its location at the center of the body, lying over major organs, blood vessels, lymph nodes, and energy channels, and from its original purpose as an entryway for nutrients coming into the body through the umbilical cord.
The belly button also lies over what is known as our “second brain,” or “gut brain,” which is the extensive system of neurons that manage the gut semi-independently from the brain while being in close connection with it. The second brain not only manages digestion, but affects moods and produces our “gut instinct” as well.
By pressing into the belly button gently, you can feel points of tension that may be restricting your movement, circulation, or digestion. Massaging these points removes the acute restriction, while at the same time, relaxes the body and calms the mind, which is the most beneficial state for rest and repair. Belly Button Healing boasts a wide range of effects—from better immunity, to pain relief, improved range of motion, relief from constipation, better blood and lymph circulation, and more.
Besides these effects, Belly Button Healing improves mood, purportedly by stimulating the release of “happy hormones” such as serotonin and dopamine, which are produced in abundance in the gut. It also creates a better environment for healthy gut microbes to thrive in the intestines. These microscopic organisms provide a healthier intestinal wall, better immunity, and greater release of these happy hormones.
Along with the book, Ilchi Lee has designed a Belly Button Healing Wand called Healing Life. The name reflects Ilchi Lee’s belief that Belly Button Healing is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle. The tool is ergonomically designed so that most people can perform Belly Button Healing more consistently and efficiently than they can with their hands or other instrument.
Several doctors have endorsed Belly Button Healing:
“Belly Button Healing relieved tight muscles and pain in my lower back and hips within just twenty-four hours. Add this technique to your self-care routine and see how it strengthens your second brain, the gut, and pumps more energy and vitality into your life. I highly recommend it.”
– JAMES WESTPHAL, MD, Chief of Psychiatry of the Adult Mental Health Division of the Hawaii Department of Health
“I’ve never experienced such a simple, yet powerful method like this. Just few minutes of Belly Button Healing made so much difference: My shoulder loosed up and the sciatic pain in my left side lessened, and I could raise my leg much higher. Everybody should give it a try.”
– EDWARD JANG, MD, Internist and Family Practitioner
“I have incorporated many of Ilchi Lee’s techniques into my personal daily meditation, health, and exercise practice for several years. I have found Belly Button Healing to be a simple way of calming my mind, relaxing my body, and promoting a peaceful sense of well-being. I’m happy to recommend this wonderful technique to everyone.”
– REED TUCKSON, MD, Managing Director at Tuckson Health Connections
“I’ve been using Belly Button Healing on myself, and I’ve found that it has lessened the intestinal side effects of the medications I must take every three weeks, making me much more comfortable. I encourage everyone to start their own daily practice of Belly Button Healing and discover its subtle yet profound benefits for themselves.”
– DEBORAH COADY, MD, OB/GYN, Pelvic Pain Expert, Author
