  • Welcome everyone, Dr. Mandle here.

  • All this chaos worldwide is causing our stress hormones to get way out of the hand,

  • causing the sympathetic nervous system to be stimulated, secreting cortisol norepinephrine as well as adrenaline throughout our bloodstream.

  • This is causing that nervous, that anxiety sensation that we're experiencing, which is affecting our daily lives.

  • I am going to share with you specific acupressure points that you are going to be able to stop that sympathetic that system that's stimulating your body immediately.

  • These specific points are going to downgrade your sympathetic nervous system, allowing your parasympathetic system to start to kick in.

  • This will immediately slow down your brain waves, which rejuvenates the brain chemistry and gives rise to a calmer state of mind.

  • Hormones like dopamine, known as the feel-good hormone, serotonin, which helps put you in a better mood, as well as those endorphins that will give your body and that instant relaxation and that high feeling.

  • When we apply pressure to these points, we are releasing that blocked chi energy within those meridians.

  • We are also going to be sending neural stimulation back to the brain.

  • This first point is very powerful.

  • This will slow down your nervous system allowing your brain to secrete those hormones to get you feeling relaxed.

  • This first point is called Pericardium 6; three finger lengths below the crease of your wrist area.

  • Take these three fingers, put it in line right with that crease, right on the bottom of that last finger right here, right in the center of these two tendons.

  • That is Pericardium 6.

  • You can stimulate it with your second finger or your thumb.

  • Your thumb you may like better because it's bigger and you're going to move it around in little circular emotions and do this for 30 to 60 seconds.

  • And I advise you to start on your left hand first because that is on the side where the heart is located, this point will instantaneously start to slow down your heart rate.

  • Now we'll stimulate the third eye.

  • This is located directly between your eyebrows.

  • You can use your second finger or your thumb.

  • And once you get on that point, you're going to stimulate it in a little circular motions like this, applying firm pressure.

  • This really causes lots of neural stimulation to the brain.

  • This is really excellent in pumping up those hormones, particularly in the parasympathetic nervous system.

  • And you'll do that for about 30 to 60 seconds.

  • If you look here, you will see this triangular region in your upper ear.

  • On the lower part of that triangle, that is shen men.

  • Although you're going to contact that whole entire triangle of both ears at the same time.

  • So right above my finger is that triangle right in here, I'm gonna take my thumb and put it right over that whole triangle as well as the other one.

  • And once you find it, you will be able to find it again once you get your location.

  • You'll take the thumbs of both hands and you'll stimulate that triangle with the index finger being behind as you squeeze them together and you're going to stimulate those points from 30 to 60 seconds.

  • And this last point, you're going to feel lots of physiological changes take place as your brain and body wind down as those hormones within the parasympathetic nervous system are kicking in.

  • Take your 1st and 2nd fingers, your thumb and index finger, grab the bottom of your ear lobes, pull down and out.

  • As you pull outwards, you'll feel an instant change reflex behind your nasal area, behind the eyes.

  • You'll feel opening.

  • Yes, your sinuses may drain, your nasal passages may open up, but just keep pulling down and outwards and you'll feel that sensation come over your head as it affects those chemicals in the brain.

  • You're gonna hold that for 30 to 60 seconds.

  • So when you're feeling stressed and anxious and you want your body to wind down immediately, start doing these techniques.

  • Use them as often as necessary and you will see those instant changes.

  • Please share this video with your friends and family.

  • Leave your comments below and most important, make it a great day.

  • I'm Dr. Alan Mandell.

Welcome everyone, Dr. Mandle here.
