Functions: Eliminates intestinal pathogenic factors. Method
Assume the sitting or lying postures. Relax and press the tongue against the palate. Close the eyes slightly, and breathe evenly. Imagine Qi whirling from left to right from the mouth to the stomach and carrying the genuine Qi to the large intestines, where it drives pathogenic factors from the intestines and out of the anus. Then inhale and contract the anus gently to close it. Conduct the genuine Qi whirling from right to left, upward through the intestine and out of the upper orifice of the stomach. Repeat this procedure 5-10 times. After the exercise, concentrate the mind on the Diantian for a moment to bring genuine Qi back to its origin. Rub the abdomen, hands, and face for a while to end the exercise. Application
Filth Elimination Exercise is recommended for symptoms due to excess heat and the retention of damp-heat and waste in the intestines. This condition manifests as constipation, abdominal distention, nausea, vomiting, and fullness and discomfort in the epigastrium.
Rub the abdomen clockwise 36 times before doing the exercise and counterclockwise for another 36 times after doing it. Practice this exercise 3 or 4 times a day. Increase the frequency if the symptoms are severe. As soon as the turbid Qi is driven out of the anus, reverse the mind to bring genuine Qi back. This exercise is not suitable for deficiency syndromes manifested as constipation due to Yin deficiency, prolapsed rectum, tenesmus, and distention of the anus due to Qi deficiency.
