As the life energy in Danjeon (lower abdomen) becomes more solid, the practitioner's mind becomes more balanced and grounded. Since this practice allows the practitioner to take more oxygen into the body, the metabolism is enhanced. The practice enhances blood circulation which in turn helps to recover from physical fatigue and mental stress.
SunDo practice is also known to be helpful in overcoming obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol. The digestive function is enhanced because the intestines are stimulated with the deep lower abdominal breathing. As the function of digestion and excretion are enhanced, the complexion becomes clearer and healthier.
