    Acupressure for lactose intolerance

    Try the following acupoints if you suffer from symptoms of lactose intolerance when consuming dairy products.  Apply gradual but steady finger pressure for a couple of minutes.
    • Conception Vessel 12: place all fingers in the center of the abdomen between the navel and base of the breastbone.  Slowly apply pressure upwards toward the center of the back.  Breathe deeply. Caution:  Do NOT stimulate this point if you have just eaten, you have high blood pressure, or if you are pregnant. It is best held on an empty stomach and for no longer than two minutes.
    • Conception Vessel 6: located two finger-widths below your navel.
    • Stomach 36, located four finger widths below your kneecap and one finger­ width to the outside of your shin­bone. If you are on the right spot, a muscle should flex as you move your foot up and down.
    • Pericardium 6: located in the middle of your inner wrist, 2 1/2 finger widths above the wrist crease.
    • Spleen 4: located on the arch of your foot, one thumb-width behind the ball of the foot toward the heel.  With the outer edge of one foot on the ground, place the opposite heel in the arch of the foot to press Sp 4.
