Ileo-Cecal Valve

The Ileo-Cecal valve is a small muscle located between the small and large intestine. Found only on the right side of the body, this one way check valve allows our food to pass into the large intestine for further processing. The proper function of this valve is to open and close upon demand. When this muscle sticks in the open position it causes a backwash from the large intestine into the small intestine, allowing fecal matter to be used in the making of blood. This has great consequences as the small intestine is where the process of creating the blood/fuel to feed the body begins. When this muscle is stuck closed, the process of eliminating waste will be hindered. Both of these conditions are very toxic and can cause a problem anywhere in the body there is blood.

These conditions are related to eating improper food and/or emotional stress and can seriously affect the performance of the whole body. Low blood/fuel can also cause the valve to lose its tension and stick, usually in the open position. This situation can be identified by the whining sound in the individual. The liver meridian travels directly over the IC valve, so excessive amounts of alcohol consumed will stress this valve causing it to stick open. The result is one of the main causes of hangovers.
