Simple ten day moxa treatment to improve anaemia and iron deficiency

Posted by Tabitha Fennell on 12 January 2016

All you need is a moxa stick and 20 minutes a day.

So moxa for 10 minutes on St36 on both sides for 10 days will improve your body's rate to absorb iron.

A lot of the time it's not that we don't eat enough high iron foods, it's that our bodies are not absorbing it. So how the moxa works is that it turns on your digestion, helping with a better absorption rate. St36 is the major point we use to treat digestion and immunity disorders.

Along with this treatment, people experience a higher rate of energy as well, so that's an added bonus. Also when you have a digestive system that works more effectively breaking down your food and absorbing all it's nutrients, your energy will flow as your blood and iron levels lift.

Try it out, it's really worth it!

St36 is located on the outside of your lower leg and if you put your 4 fingers together and put them just below the knee you will get how far down the leg it is. It's in the muscle part of the outside leg area, just out from the bone. See video, this will help you locate st36 easily.
