The Navel is also called the Nabhi Chakra or solar plexus in the Ayurveda natural healing science. Navel displacement is characterized by a possible shift in the navel center.
And associated with digestive troubles.


Navel displacement may be caused due to lifting heavy weights, or routine hard work that involves an excessive strain or pressure on the abdominal muscles. Unhealthy eating habits can also trigger gastric troubles which are associated with navel displacement.

Sign and Symptoms

Navel displacement reflects disturbances in the functions of the digestive system. As a result, patients may experience loose motions, changes in appetite, bloating, and heaviness.

These symptoms of navel displacement along with discomfort and pain may also make a person physically weak. An inefficient digestive system functioning may cause a deficiency of essential nutrients due to the lack of absorption of food.

In rare cases, the navel protrudes or bulges outside of the abdomen. A protruding navel could be a sign of an umbilical hernia.

Pathology of navel displacement

The umbilicus lies at the front of the abdominal region and is believed to be perpendicular to a point between the third and the fourth lumbar vertebrae. A shift in this normal position of the navel may indicate an underlying associated abnormality, which could affect the digestive system. The shift of the navel can occur at either or both the anatomical parts of the navel, the Umbilical Tip; or the periumbilical skin. The central part of the umbilicus is formed by the umbilical tip, also known as the belly button. It is encircled by the periumbilical skin.

Outies refer to the parts of the umbilical tips that rise above the level of periumbilical skin while the part of the umbilical tip below the level of the Periumbilical skin is called the Innies. Navel displacement may distort these parts of the umbilicus.
