Doctor Certificate. He is the chief editor of Whole Version of
Family Chinese Health Care, The Essence of Bedroom Massage, The Family
Massage Health Care Series, and so on. Hello! Mr. Lu Hello! Everybody Mr. Lu, talking about the constipation I think it is difficult to express because I think nobody wants to see a doctor
for constipation one reason, it’s not an serious disease another one, I think I don’t want to tell this kind of disease to
doctor I don’t know the constipation Is it a serious disease on earth? What’s the reason of constipation? In a general way, the stool stay in the
bowels more than 48 hours, it can call constipation the stool settle in the bowels too long the bowels’ moisture are absorb so much that it forms dry stool so it forms constipation the constipation although it isn’t a serious disease it will arouse many unhealthy results For example it will arouse some
gastrointestinal diseases if you evacuate the stools difficultly it will cause the bingy swells at the same time it also causes abdomen pain
and naupathia in addition, everybody doesn’t understand the constipation and the skins hairdressing are relevant Medical treatment of constipation The disservice of constipation I have some experiences sometimes my friend tells me that I have bad
color because there is some toxins in my body the toxin is constipation Yes, someone made a statistic that the relation between constipation and cancer
of colon even more the cancer of colon became an
epidemic about the whole cancers the rank of the cancer of colon was the
third more and more statistics indicates there is a direct relation between the
cancer of colon and constipation the constipation will become a inducement of many serious diseases For example, teacher Maji actually he evacuated the stools with strong force so he died suddenly with myocardial
infarction so sometimes the constipation will cause such as cerebral haemorrhage
, myocardial infarction and others serious diseases it is a very important inducement although the constipation isn’t a serious
disease someone also doesn’t regard it actually the constipation should be resolve
in time Medical treatment of constipation The treatment way of the constipation actually whether the patient is female or whether the patient is male once someone have the disease, he or she will
be painful they can’t tell others at the same time their colors look bad at the same time it will influence the
appetite don’t want to eat then the body will cause a vicious circle so some people want to look for some folk
prescriptions for example I know people can drink honey water, eat bananas or drink balm I know all of these Can the doctor introduce some ways actually the doctor would like to introduce
the way which is to regulate from our life You don’t take lapactic because the use of lapactic is to accelerate the peristalsis of the
stomach and intestine or force to evacuate the body’s water into the intestines for destroying the balance of the body it has many harms so we had better regulate from our life
styles If we take more lapactics, we’ll form a
resistance if we don’t take the lapactic, we won’t
evacuate the stools and that we will take this kind of medicine
larger and larger so this is not a good way the better way is to regulate from our life
styles we also can do some accessorial treatments do these accessorial treatments, you can’t
see a doctor you can finish at home you also don’t have any special equipments and advanced techniques today we will want to discuss the topic of
massage How to treat constipation by massage if you have this kind of disease on your
mind that is embarrassing to tell then you can follow with Dr. Lu to learn at home To use massage to treat the constipation Medical treatment of constipation Techniques of constipation treatment by TCM the disease of alimentary canal is caused by function maladjustment of
spleen and stomach when we treat the constipation with massage we should strengthen the function of spleen
and stomach that is to say to accelerate the peristalsis
of the stomach and intestine to accelerate the peristalsis strongly then the problem of the constipation can be
readily solved so if we treat it by massage the uppermost thing is to massage spleen and
stomach the first step the massage we should begin from a point Tianshu where is Tianshu point it is beside the navel about 2 inches if the patient has strong awareness of
defecation but the patient can’t evacuate the stools then the urgent massage must start to massage Tianshu point how to massage? Close the four fingers digital-press on Tianshu, exert force inward
and downward from light to heavy, and the motion should be
slow repeat it about 5-6 times after accelerate this point the patient will has a wonderful effect this is the first point the second is Zhanwan point where is Zhongwan from this xiphisternum to the navel, we draw a beeline then Zhongwan point is on the midpoint part we must press with thumb because the force is stronger we massage here strongly the motion should be slow but the force should be strong operate manipulations of pressing and
kneading at the same time last 2 or 3 minutes is ok the third point is Guanyuan its’ position is from the navel to pubic symphysis, we draw a beeline at this midpoint under the navel about 3 inches, four
transverse fingers this Guanyuan massage it we can exert force with two
thumbs press downwards slowly, press and pluck at the same time the fourth is Daju point Daju means the giant where is this point it’s beside the navel 2 inches I told you this was Tianshu before under Tianshu point 2 inches is Daju point it locates the part of sigmoid flexure press should be slightly heavy press with the thumb the first finger covers the thumb to exert
force vertically repeat to massage like this is about one or
two minutes the next technique is circular rubbing the
abdomen The position of the large intestine is from
right inferior belly here is the ascending colon from right inferior belly to left inferior
belly is transverse colon from transverse colon to the left is
descending colon from descending colon to ala of ilium this is sigmoid colon this is the approach then we obey this approach to rub the abdomen with clockwise when move to the part of sigmoid colon, press
here just like this operation the massage time is decided by every
different person according to the patient’s awareness of
defecation, exert force gradually this is a factor the time is adjusted by the response of awareness of defecation 2-3 minutes or 5-6minutes both are OK the next technique is circular rubbing the
abdomen I encircle the navel my palms press downwards vertically press as the palm bases push backwards as if kneading dough or I can press and shake smoothly and
straightly this is a manipulation the next manipulation is to rub the double
ribbing slanting put the hands on the patient’s double
ribbings push towards the lower abdomen slanting from
up to down then the patient feels a kind of warm
feelings then the massage is successful the next is heaping-kneading manipulation put the hands on the both sides of the
abdomen of the patient push to the centre from the both sides, heap
the muscles and then wipe back this is the motion when some patients suffer from the
constipation at the same time they have comparative
strong distension of abdomen qi stagnates with a kind of feel of
distension of abdomen then what shall we do about constipation and
distension of abdomen we can accelerate the patients exhaust what are the points the first point is Zusanli I told you before Zusanli is the uppermost tonicity point first we find the fibula capitulum under the fibula capitulum about the position of four transverse
fingers beside this canon born raphe about 1 inch, at this position we accelerate Zusanli this is a comparative strong stimulation digital-pressing with thumb and kneading
together the second point is Sanyinjiao Sanyinjiao is above the medial malleolus the position which is about 3 inches and
four transverse fingers press and knead the third one is Hegu point Hegu point locates the furcate position between the first
metacarpus and the second we also call the position is Hukou the first fingertipjoint of thumb this is the point which can be reached by
the fingertip do a strong stimulation, after stimulate
three points the patient’s peristalsis of stomach and
intestines turns quickly the patient wants to go to toilet and fart or the intestines sound then we will be successful along with the intestines sounds become
stronger and stronger the symptom of abdomen distension slows down
gradually If the symptom of constipation and bellyache
happen together what shall we do? The patients last the constipation longly and pain in the abdomen then we should stimulate several points the first point is Daimai it is Dushaoyang courage point it is beside the navel, at the midaxillary

upwards as possible as we can the point which the first finger tip touches
that is Liangqiu we’ll stimulate it deeply stimulate it to relax the pain especially the pain that is caused by
hyperkinesias of stomach and intestines the effect is very obvious according to several dialectic of TCM there are many reasons about the
constipation such as hot constipation, qi constipation and
weak constipatin what’s the reason of qi constipation? It is caused by the disease of liver and
gall because the long-term blues, anxiety and angriness our primary treatment is to sooth the liver
and regulate flow of Qi according to the methods that we had
demonstrated we will add two points one is Zhangmen, another is Jingmen where is Zhangmen point? It is on the seventh intercostals space of
anterior axillary line Everyone knows the whole ribbing are 12pairs the eleventh and twelfth are assistant rib I count from lower part to the seventh
intercostals space on the anterior axillary line, it’s Zhangmen

space we will talk about hot constipation and weak
constipation later because the stimulative point is stomach after we operated these methods where is the next method? It’s on the arms on the large intestine point of Shouyangming we’ll operate some manipulations on the
outer side of the upper arm the primary way is rubbing and pushing this position of function is on the upper arm and forearm Zuyangming channel is stomach channel it is the stimulative point which is on the lower limbs, calf From down to up we’ll operate some manipulations on the
outer side of the calf let the patient feels the warm stimulation extends to lower abdomen slowly then we’ll carry our point this is the manipulation of the massage ask the patient turn over the body then we’ll operate dorsal manipulation wejust talked about weak constipation what is weak constipation? It is caused by deficiency of the kidney it is due to keep the bed long and other consumptive diseases and the body lacks force, the stomach and
intestines can’t shrink our manipulation is for reinforcing the
kidney we begin to treat kidney point the kidney point of the both sides it is about beside the second lumbar 2 inches first we should find the ala of ilium the highest point of the ala of ilium faces the fourth ala of ilium push upwards two vertebra clearances move 2 inches on the second lumbar this is about the position of Shenshu we’ll operate some manipulations operate digital-pressing manipulation the thumbs pluck sacrum muscle to forwards and downwards move to the side 2 inches from Shenshu this is the movement of stomach channel what is the point that close to the side of
Shenshu 2 inches it’s Weicang point encircle the waist with four fingers the thumb on Weicang point, operate some
manipulations operate the manipulations of
pressing, kneading and pushing this is the treatment way of weak
constipation another point is hot constipation it is caused by the stomach and intestines the herbalist doctors think the body suffers
from excessive internal heat so we should eliminate internal heat then we should stimulate these four points these are liver, courage, spleen and stomach bladder point are beside the rachis the bladder point is in parallel with the
ninth thoracic vertebra this is liver point first we should find the bladebone inferior angle of the bladebone faces the
seventh thoracic vertebra I push downwards for two vertebra clearances

inches, it’s liver point I stimulate the liver point I stimulate courage point, it’s beside the
tenth ninth thoracic vertebra 2 inches beside the eleventh thoracic vertebra 2
inches, it’s spleen point beside the twelfth thoracic vertebra 2
inches, it’s stomach point I must massage these four points operate the both sides at the same time Medical treatment of constipation How to defend the constipation in daily life Dr. Lu told us several ways that about constipation treatment by TCM then I want to ask Dr. Lu just now Dr. Lu talked about the basic way of constipation is about life
style Can you introduce to everyone? I had told you about life style the primary factor of constipation is that
we lack exercises and sit too long so if we do more exercises, it will be good
for constipation the best sport way is walking quickly we can say that walk as if on wings especially when we suffer the pain of
constipation we want to evacuate the stool, but we can’t we can go for a walk if we walk very quickly half an hour then the problem of constipation can be
resolve easily this is a wonderful way to reinforce sport another way that is to take exercise What do we take exercise? That is to frap the buttocks and anus when we work on the seat we can do this kind of motion at any moment others can’t discover, and the motion also
does not affect the whole if we take this kind of exercise long it can stimulate the peristalsis of Kuoyan
muscle of crissum let it become strongly then it also can resolve some constipation
problems another way is about eating we must eat more coarse-fibred foods as
possible as we can especially the constipation patients we should eat more celeries and potatoes this way is good for relaxing the
constipation or we can drink more milk especially we can increase a little honey
into milk this is also a good way drink more water, drink 2.5 ml. To
3ml. Everyday this is a way and others’ folk prescriptions If I suffer the constipation too long, I feel
very painfully Do we have any folk prescriptions to cure
the constipation? Actually there are some folk prescriptions such as pawpaw add milk this is a wonderful way we call another way is gingili open the door What is gingili open the door? To statue black the gingili every evening eat two spoons every evening this is also a good way to relax the
constipation furthermore the gingili can nourish the
kidney and nourish hairs so it also has many benefits especially for the old men what is another one? It is eating banana with different way To peel off the skins of banana, and cook in
the water and then add to rock candy To eat banana and drink the waters this way is good for relaxing the
constipation In addition do a earthen casserole with pig
blood and bean curd it is also helpful for relaxing the
constipation, if you eat often Of course, for the constipation the best way is prevention secondly is treatment so if we regard the regulation of these life
styles we not only treat the constipation actually it can prevent constipation better so if we regard the details of these life
styles then the constipation isn’t a troubled
disease I’ll ask Dr. Lu more just like you told us these folk
prescriptions Can we eat more? Do we get diarrhea if we eat more? Everything we should hold its limit It means that if you use it well, it is a
good medicine it can be medicine If you eat more, then side effect will happen it will become diarrhea right, especially like banana if you eat more banana, it can arouse
diarrhea the disease changes from constipation
changes to diarrhea then the patient will feel ill Right, just now Dr. Lu referred to diarrhea it is out another topic that is diarrhea in fact, diarrhea as if the gut is angry for example, if we eat something isn’t clean or our repast is illogically we are sensitive to some foods or our energy
are nervously or woman menstruate all of these situations will cause diarrhea the gut begin to excite it become angrily and dysphoric then the gut arouses diarrhea Dr. Lu, I don’t know what’s reason the diarrhea aroused on earth Talking about the diarrhea what is the diarrhea? Someone evacuate stool once each day but someone evacuate twice or three times
each day someone evacuate once two or three days maybe these situations aren’t diarrhea if only he has a defecate habit of
underlying rules and that he have any symptoms he feels very comfortably after evacuate the stool don’t feaze his life these aren’t called diarrhea then what is diarrhea? We should say that for his life quality it brings serious influence, he can’t bear or we can explain when the diarrhea comes before the diarrhea or during the diarrhea someone pain in the stomach or bowels while
he evacuate especially colic, the gut distention even evacuate thick blood these are diseases then he must see a doctor he must regard In a general way, diarrhea is a natural but not single disease For example the enteritis can induce
diarrhea dysentery can induce diarrhea some diseases of liver and gall the dyspepsia of fattiness also can induce
diarrhea and some diseases of the stomach and bowels such as gastric ulcer, hot stomach they also can induce diarrhea sojust like these reasons the patient must go to hospital to see a
doctor we can’t cure at home such as enteritis, dysentery these diseases can’t be cured by massage we should see a doctor then the effect of massage treatment what is the best? This is a primary topic which we will
discuss today The diarrhea is induced by the mental reason many people have the experience when his mind is high-strung or he is afraid of exam he wants to go to toilet for the diarrhea is induced by this kind of
reason actually the effect of massage is very good and other chronic diarrnea because of constitutional reason for example herbalist doctor explains the weak constitution causes diarrhea easily this is due to the constitution but is not
due to extrinsic factor induce the diarrhea so we should go to hospital to see a doctor Medical treatment of diarrhea the Treatment way by diarrhea patients
themselves Quite so just now Dr. Lu told us if we have a serious diarrhea if we have blood in our stool we must see a doctor at once but I believe in our daily life everyone has an suffering experience of the
uncomfortable stomach and bowels then on this occasion, first people don’t
want to see a doctor second people don’t want to trouble the
doctor there is no need for them to see a doctor then we can use some simple ways to treat the diarrhea if only we except the infectivity diarrhea then other diarrheas actually we can treat at home moreover massage is a great way for example, the diarrhea which is caused by
spirituality reason then it will be readily solved by massage I can resolve this problem then other diseases such as the disease of
liver and gall the disease of stomach and bowels, then massage can be an important assistant way for
treatment it also can relax the symptom and let the patient feels more comfortable so during the treatment process of diarrhea massage is a great and an very economical and practical way Medical treatment of diarrhea the Technique of diarrhea treatment by TCM just now I learnt some knowledge if in your daily life you suffer the pain in stomach and bowels and get this kind of uncomfortable symptom
often then let Dr. Lu teaches us at once To teach you how treat the diarrhea by TCM We will talk about the manipulation of
diarrhea diarrhea means gastrointestinal peristalsis
expedite pass the massage to stimulate this
sympathetic nerve it can relax the tensional nerve excitation and it can slow down the gastrointestinal
peristalsis to slow down its’ peristalsis this is also a good way to treat diarrhea How to treat it? First rub the abdomen let the patient feels warm on her abdomen even before massage we can heat the abdomen with hot-water bag then we begin to massage, the effect will be
better the manipulation of rubbing abdomen put one hand on the patient’s umbilical part operate with large-scale rotation movement the force exerts should not be too strong let the patient feels warm we also can rub the abdomen, rub sidewards or rub vertically from down to up we also can operate obliquely rubbing to rub downwards along costal arch of both
sides secondly we begin to press points where do we press? First one is Shuifen point it is above the navel 1 inch press it, below the navel 1 inch is Qihai
point the next point is Liangqiu point just now we talked about Liangqiu point I encircle the patella with my Hukou the first fingers and thumbs press it
upwards the first finger tip over against Liangqiu
point the thumbs over against Xiehai point press these two points the first fingers and the thumbs exert force
face to face for calming down the excitation of the
stomach and bowels and relaxing spasm and pain in stomach and
bowels this kind of manipulation is very great another point is Zusanli we call it Peibenshenyuan first we will find the fibula capitulum under the fibula capitulum 3 inches beside the cannon born raphe 1 inch press Zusanli with light force force of the manipulation should be soft and
not be too strong any more we can operate some manipulations
about pushing abdomen the direction of pushing abdomen is opposite
with the constipation’s constipation treatment is clockwise push from ascending colon to descending
colon but diarrhea is different from constipation on the contrary, from sigmoid colon to ascending colon with counter-clockwise
pushing the force should not be too strong we also can operate flicking manipulation for stimulating the plant nerves and relaxing spasm and peristalsis of
stomach and bowels it is helpful this is also a way the next step we will rub lower abdomen let the lower abdomen brings warm feeling this is abdomen manipulation of diarrhea the primary manipulation on the back is
pushing manipulation push from down to up, push from Zhibian point to Mingmen point where is Mingmen point? It’s on the spinous process of the second
lumbar vertebra maybe Zhibian point close to the part of superior iliac crest of ilium put the palms on the patient’s body we’ll push from down to up this is a kind of manipulation we also can operate pinching manipulation the thumbs are opposite with first fingers lift up the muscles, put down go ahead, lift up again lift up, put down, lift up again and go ahead operate springily OK, this is a wonderful operation the next step is rubbing sidewards waist
sacrum we’ll operate some pushing manipulations on
buttocks we push on the buttocks from down to up exert force little strong from the buttocks from the waist sacrum
joint push it with a triangle movement, just like
this way push it with soft and light force but we can prolong the time we also can stimulate Changqiang point it is above the buttocks and at the tip of coccygeal vertebra in this way, if the patients are old and weak or they are ill seriously their constitution are weak, we also can
massage kidney point we operate the kneading and wiping
manipulations with palm root on the kidney
part or we can operate with two hands at the same
time Medical treatment of diarrhea Attention matters of diarrhea patients well, just now Dr. Lu taught us how to utilize TCM to treat diarrhea at last I want to consult Dr. Lu if there is a diarrhea patient at home now then what other family members should pay
attention to first the diarrhea patient can’t drink milk, this is a very important
factor milk can cause diarrhea this is one factor that we should pay
attention to avoid in addition the patient can’t eat garlic someone says the garlic can kill large
intestine bacilli the dysentery patients and enteritis
patients think if eat some garlic to diminish inflammation, then the disease
will be OK actually eating garlic it stimulates the peristalsis of stomach and
bowels more seriously another factor that is we can’t take antidiarrhoeal drug at random the diarrhea only is a symptom it isn’t original disease if you cure the diarrhea quickly maybe you will cover the original disease and cause more serious aftereffect and that some medicines some diseases such as enteritis, dysentery these diseases can’t be cured by
antidiarrhoeal drug if you take antidiarrhoeal drug then the toxin can’t evacuate out To evacuate out toxin is a kind of protect
mechanism for ourselves if you don’t evacuate you bear stool forcedly then the toxin can’t be evacuate out and
overrun in the body it will cause more serious aftereffect so there is a very famous sentence that is if someone gets dysentery, he should
evacuate so if you get dysentery you should evacuate the toxin so these principles we must regard in out
life when you get diarrhea you can’t take berberine or furazolidone at once, actually these
medicine will cause many poison side effect don’t take medicine as if eat rice you had better consult doctor before you
take medicine To take medicine after the doctor
instructs, it will be safe OK, according to the cathedra I realized that our stomachs and bowels are very effeminate if you don’t take care of them they will be angry whether constipation or diarrhea that is a notice from intestine well, I will borrow an advertising message that is good intestine, good appetite, all the
foods are delicious now if you worry about your intestine
disease then you must obey the rules a good life rule and the assistant treatment of TCM I believe that you can get rid of the
diseases soon Right, thank you for your watching Lectures on Massage by Famous Expert of TCM See you next time See you Doctor notice: How to prevent constipation To take more exercises and walk Pay attention to do some exercises about
