Here’s a video demo to guide you to use the Detox Acupressure Lv 3 point on the top of your foot, in the valley or webbing between the large toe and second toe. This powerful point balances the Liver meridian. The Lv 3 Acupressure point is a major gateway for energy that flows up your body. It also relieves toxicity, and all kinds of allergic reactions, especially bloodshot eyes, tired or strained eyes, frustration, irritability, and neuromuscular disorders.
Most people know that the point in the webbing, between your thumb and index finger, the Hoku Point (LI 4) relieves headaches. But, did you know that this point also reduces inflammation and pain in all parts of the body?

I suffered from learning difficulties and dyslexia as a child. I experienced the anxieties, fears, and humiliation from not being able to read and spell like other kids. The fears I experienced, as a child were devastating.
Learning Acupressure and deep breathing enabled me to deal with my emotional trauma and gave me determination to help others. I earned my Elementary Teaching Credential while studying Acupressure. Although I had these learning difficulties, I struggled to writeAcu-Yoga, my first book integrating Yoga with Acupressure. Twenty years later, it took me 7 years to write Acupressure for Emotional Healing, a book on how acupressure can heal the emotions and learning problems. In this video, I present to children how Acupressure can make you think clearer, be more creative and powerful.

With ADD and ADHD you’ll see hyperactive children fidgeting and squirming around. The impulsiveness of ADD and ADHD often results in outbursts, tantrums, and a lack of self-control. The emotional pain and trauma experienced in infancy creates distrust, defense mechanisms, and eventually leads to behavioral disorders. Diet imbalances can have a major influence along with psychological aspects, which reinforce how a child reacts and develops.
Dietary Guidelines to use with Acupressure Therapy:
* Limit all sugars in foods, including breakfast cereals, snacks, sodas, candy, and even excessive intake of unsweetened fruit juices and fruit high in sugar can cause problems in sensitive children.
* Junk Foods: Avoid giving children soda pop and other ‘junk foods’. You’re not depriving a child; you’re caring for them. Explain to young children how junk foods weaken and imbalance the body. Most children understand that eating too much sugar can cause a tummy ache. They can be taught that they’d feel better without eating lots of junk food, and eventually make this connection themselves. This can lead to making wise choices in life.
