CBD oil can be consumed in different ways, but what many people don’t know is that the belly button is one of them. Consuming CBD oil through your belly button ensures that the medical components are distributed throughout your body. Curious to see how this works?
Why is the belly button so important?
Although the belly button is the connection between an unborn child and its mother in the womb, it is an often-forgotten part of the body. Behind the belly button there are thousands of veins that are connected to the whole body. Other than the veins, there is also a gland located there. During pregnancy, nutrients are transferred from mother to child through a connection with the pechoti gland.
What is the Pechoti method?
The Pechoti method finds its origin in Ayurvedic medicine: it focuses on the balance between body and mind. By applying CBD oil to your belly button, the medicinal components are spread and absorbed through the veins behind the belly button. This way, the active constituents of the oil are spread throughout your body.
How should you apply the CBD Oil to your belly button?
We recommend that you apply the oil either sitting or lying down. You can drip the CBD oil in and around your belly button. It is recommended that you first let the oil soak in and then gently massage it in with the palm of your hand. In the most ideal situation, let the oil soak in for 20 minutes. Try to breathe calmly and naturally, while concentrating on your stomach. In addition to applying the oil, breathing through your stomach will also bring relaxation.
What are the advantages of this method of consuming?
Because cannabis has been demonized for a long time, there are almost no scientific studies on CBD oil. However, from our expert experience we want to distinguish several advantages in this Ayurvedic method of consuming:
Do you remember the old days, that if you had a tummy ache or were tense, your mother would rub your tummy, and this would bring relief? Many of us have this positive childhood experience. Due to the connection between your belly button and nervous system, rhythmic rubbing of the abdominal area tends to relax the body and the mind.
Since the belly button is connected to the nervous system, it is possible to relieve pain in this way. While massaging around the belly button, you stimulate the nerves, tissues and muscles in your body. Because this results in extra blood and oxygen supply, you can relieve neck problems and other muscle nodes.
By massaging the abdominal area the blood circulation is stimulated, which results in supplying the cells of the immune system with extra blood. It can therefore have a positive effect on your immune system. In addition, it has a positive effect on digestion and constipation.
When is this method of consuming not recommended?
With certain medical conditions or circumstances, it is not recommended to apply CBD oil to the belly button:
- Stomach and/or intestinal disorders
- Trauma to the navel (umbilicus fracture, etc.)
- A recent operation in the stomach area
Although there is little scientific evidence for the benefits of consuming CBD oil through your belly button, the positive experiences speak for themselves. The Pechoti method is an ideal way to unwind, relax, boost your immune system and enjoy the benefits of CBD oil.
