The Things You Can Cure Through Your Belly Button

Updated on September 29, 2019

In all of God’s creation, the first part created after the clot is formed is the belly button. After it’s created, it joins to the mother’s belly button through the umbilical cord.

Our belly button is surely an amazing thing! After a person has passed away, the belly button is still warm for 3 hours the reason being when a woman conceives a child, her belly button supplies nourishment to the child through the child’s belly button. And a fully grown child is formed in 270 days = 9 months. This is the reason all our veins are connected to our belly button which makes it the focal point of our body.

      Amazing article. I had seen old ladies in my village putting a little oil in the children's belly button but never thought that it had a purpose.
