Heart Protector 6 Helps Poor Digestion and Nausea

Posted: Jun 6th, 2013

Inner Frontier Gate, also called Heart Protector 6, is one of the most common points used to prevent or relieve nausea. Bracelets worn to prevent seasickness are actually applying pressure to Heart Protector 6. This point is located on the inside of the forearm between two prominent tendons, about 2-3 inches proximal to the wrist. When nausea threatens, press around this area on each wrist to find the most exquisitely tender point and you will surely have found this point.


In addition to nausea, Inner Frontier Gate is frequently incorporated into treatments for chronic cases of indigestion, bloating, and constipation.
