Your health, vitality and longevity are all directly linked to the hygiene of your vital organs. It has been well understood for thousands of years that it's simply not enough to clean the visible external layers of the body if we neglect to regularly clean the non-visible internal layers. It would be equivalent to sweeping the dirt underneath the carpet. Only that the carpet, in this case, is your body!
Thankfully, our bodies have developed the phenomenal capacity to clean themselves with emunctory organs (skin, lungs, liver, kidneys, bowels) and vital systems (like the cardiovascular system). The normal function of these organs and systems can be interrupted by bad habits, including poor nutritional choices, consumption of alcohol, tobacco, meats, drugs (illegal and legal), poor stress management, or a sedentary lifestyle.
Needless to say, all of these bad habits are quite common in much of society today and, more often than not, people adopt a prescription over prevention approach to resolve the health problems that arise when these basic functions of the vital organs begin to break down. A clean body, free of toxins, helps to maintain a strong immune system and defend against disease and cancerous processes.
In this first part of our blog series Personal Hygiene: the practice of hygiene, cleansing and purification, we are going to introduce two very important techniques that can be done anywhere and will help maintain excellent health of the intestines and other abdominal organs.
Abdominal vacuum: There are two variants of execution, static and dynamic. This technique is done during a retention without air in the lungs, relaxing the superficial abdominal musculature and intensely retracting the abdominal wall in-and-up with the transverse abdominis until the outline of the ribcage is evident.
Abdominal vacuum with circular massage: This technique is considered to be advanced, demanding a high-domain of muscle control. This technique is done during a retention without air in the lungs, first relaxing the superficial and deep abdominal musculature and applying an isolated activation of the rectus abdominis, creating a circular movement massaging the intestines and abdominal organs.
