Du Qi Wan (肚脐丸---- Moxa Mixture Belly Button Therapy)
The Du Qi Wan (肚脐丸, Moxa Mixture Belly Button Therapy) is based on a recipe by Master HuaiJin Nan. In his books, he humorously presents traditional Chinese culture as well as Confucianism, Daoism and Buddhism, providing numerous practical examples.
The "Du Qi Wan" is an ancient healing method originating from Daoism. It utilizes a moxa mixture applied through the belly button to dispel dampness and cold from the body and alleviate pain. This treatment stimulates the flow of Qi (life energy) and blood, activating the functions of related organs through the belly button. As a result, immune defense is strengthened, and imbalances in the nervous system are harmonized.
The "Du Qi Wan" is composed of mugwort (moxa), longan plum, and Sichuan pepper. Mugwort is a well-known medicinal plant in both traditional Chinese and European medicine. Longan plum benefits the heart and spleen, while Sichuan pepper expels bacteria, dampness, and cold from the body and alleviates pain.
