SCABIES


SCABIES 
 Scabies is a very itchy skin condition caused by tiny mites, itch mite, sarcoptes scabies that burrow into the skin  to produce intense itching, which tends to be worse at night. Any one can be affected, even those who keep themselves very clean can get scabies. The mites which cause scabies are not visible with the naked eye. Transmission of the mites involves close person-to-person, contact of the skin-to-skin variety. It is hard, if not impossible, to catch scabies by shaking hands, sharing cloths,or even sharing bedclothes that had mites in them the night before and other household,personal belongings. The physical contact required to contract scabies may,however, be sexual, and sexual contact is the most common form of transmission among sexually active people. However, other forms of physical contact, such as mothers hugging the children, are sufficient to spread the mites. Scabies often affects several family members at the same time.
 A mite burrows very quickly under the skin, especially in areas where it is rough or wrinkled, such as the elbows, knuckles and knees. Touching or scratching an area that is infested with mites can spread them to other parts of the body. The scabies mite that infests humans does not live on dogs or other pets. Similarly, animal-transmitted scabies mites do not survive or reproduce on humans. However, they can live long enough on humans to cause itchy hives or raised bumps.
 Symptoms ; Scabies produce severe itching and irritated skin that is usually worse at night, small red bumps and blisters and affect specific areas of the body. It may involve the webs between the fingers, the wrists and the backs of the elbows, the knees, areas around the waist and umbilicus, the axillary folds, the areas around the nipples, bra line, and the sides of the breasts in women, the sides and backs of the feet, the genital area in men, and the buttocks. The bumps, papules may contain blood crusts. It is helpful to know that not every bump is a bug.
 Children typically have worse skin reactions. Itching usually starts first, around or on the scalp, neck and face.  On the palms and soles, often the first symptom noticed in babies is a series of tiny blister like sores in these areas. It often becomes noticeable at night or after bathing and is sometimes mistaken for dry skin. Itching is caused by an allergic reaction to the scabies mite. Irritated skin often appears as a rash and skin sores that look like tiny curving tracks. These symptoms are a result of the mite tunneling under the upper layers of the skin but sometime a small blister or the mite itself, which looks like a tiny black dot, at the end of a burrow. Babies may only have red and inflamed skin, sometimes with small blister like sores. Nodular scabies; are small reddish brown raised areas (nodules), may develop in covered areas such as the armpits, groin, buttocks, scrotum, and penis.
 The most common complication of scabies is a bacterial skin infection, such as impetigo. This most often occurs when the skin has been scratched raw. Hair follicles may also become infected. The skin can become thick, red, and scaly or shiny from persistent scratching.
 Risk ; People are at higher risk of exposure to scabies mites those sexually active, close skin-to-skin contact(not specifically sexual intercourse) makes transmission more likely.  People who live or work in institutions such as nursing homes, homes for the developmentally disabled, and prisons.  People who live in crowded conditions.  Or people who have weakened immune systems.
 If one has suddenly develop severe night time itching, or develop serious side effects from any product used to treat scabies, itching lasts longer than 4 weeks after treatment or develop skin infection resulting increased pain, swelling, heat, redness or tenderness, continued discharge of pus, high fever, one should contact the doctor.
 Prevention ; Avoiding close skin-to-skin contact with someone who has scabies, as well as with their personal items, will help to avoid getting scabies. Destroy the bedding and clothing of the affected person as soon as prescription treatment begins.  Wash linens and bedclothes in hot water, because mites don’t live long away from the body, it is not necessary to dry-clean the whole wardrobe, spray furniture and rugs, and so forth.  Treat sexual contacts or relevant members (who either have symptoms or have the kind of relationship that makes transmission likely). Cut your nails, and clean under them thoroughly to remove any mites.  Try to avoid scratching. Keep any open sores clean.  
ACUPUNCTURE SuJok, the energy concept emphasise that any bacteria itself is a wind, and irritation, itching, inflammation itself indicates that heat energy is dominant. If any one is aware of the energy concept can give positive results.  Moreover, irritation, inflammation, one can get results in a short treatment sessions.

UNCONSCIOUSNESS


UNCONSCIOUSNESS
• When the normal activity of the brain is interrupted, unconsciousness may result.  An unconscious person is ; unable to respond normally to simple questions or touch or unable by coughing or swallowing to clear the airway of saliva, blood, vomit or other foreign matter that can obstruct breathing; in certain positions the tongue, which becomes floppy, can fall back and block  the throat.
 ACTION :
 Access the casualty’s state of consciousness by asking simple questions or giving simple commands ‘ open your eyes’. Gently shake the casualty by the shoulders. If there is no response, the person is unconscious.
 Place the casualty in the lateral position. Check the airway, breathing and pulse.
 If the unconscious person is breathing and has a pulse, maintain the lateral position, ensuring that the airway remains clear and open and frequently check the breathing and pulse until medical help arrives.
 In lateral position;
 Kneel beside the casualty.
 Place the casualty’s far arm straight out at right angles to the body, and near arm, bent at the elbow, across the chest with fingers close to the shoulder-tip.
 Bend the near leg up at right angles to the body.
 Holding the shoulder and hip near you, gently roll the casualty away from you onto his or her side. the top leg rests on the ground, with the thigh at right angles and calf parallel to the straight leg.
 Rest the uppermost, bent arm across the elbow of the straight arm.
 Unless the casualty is under 12 months old, gently tilt the head backwards. The face should be turned slightly downwards to allow fluid to drain from the mouth and to prevent the tongue from flopping backwards to block the airway.
 Clearing and Opening the Airway;
 The airway is the passage from the nose and mouth to the lungs, through which air enters and leaves the lungs. If it is blocked, breathing will cease. It is therefore essential to keep the airway clear and open.
 Keep the airway open by gently tilting the casualty’s head back, with one of your hands on the forehead and the point of the chin supported by the other.
 Checking for Breathing;  Breathing should be regular, quite and easy.
 Look for the rise and fall of the lower chest and upper abdomen.
 Listen and feel for air escaping from the nose and mouth, by placing your cheek to the casualty’s face.
 If the casualty is not breathing, begin expired air resuscitation immediately.
 Checking for Pulse: The pulse rate is the rate of the heartbeat : 60 to 80 strong, regular beats per minute is normal for adults at rest; up to 100 for children; up to 140 for babies. When the heart stops beating, blood circulation stops. The casualty becomes unconscious and breathing also stops. The carotid pulse should always be checked if the casualty is unconscious, seriously ill or injured. The carotid is the large artery in the neck that runs beside the windpipe to carry blood to the head.
 One has to feel the pulse for 5 seconds. If no pulse is present, begin cardiopulmonary resuscitation immediately.
 OR alternatively you may press the upper lip, below the nose, with the thumb as it gives more pressure to the applied area, one may start getting the results within a fraction of seconds!
 
When a person overcome the condition of unconsciousness, he or she should mark the red color permanent marker pen as mentioned in the pic.
 The above information is only for the benefit of mankind.

HORMONES


HORMONES 
 The nervous system control body activities through electrical impulses, the endocrine system uses chemical mesengers called hormones. Both the systems combined control all unconscious body functions and maintain our body at the best.  The endocrine glands release hormones that are absorbed into the blood so that they circulate and can act on one, or more than one, distance tissue.  Chemical receptors on the surface of or inside the target cells respond to each hormone, resulting in specific cell activities.  The hypothalamus, part of the brain, links nervous and hormonal controls mainly by its influence on the nearby pituitary gland, which in turn regulates the activity of the thyroid gland, adrenal glands and gonads (ovaries and testes). The other  principal endcrine glands are the parathyroids and the insulin-producing islets of the pancreas.
 The level of all hormone secretion is delicately adjusted to avoid too much or too little, mainly by feedback control.  When cheical sensors in the hypothalamus detect that thyroid hormones in the blood are too low, the hypothalamus directs the pituitary to release more thyroid stimulating hormone so that more thyroid hormone is produced. When blood thyroid hormones becoe adequate  this extra stimulation stops. 
 The endocrine glands ;
 Pituitary ; Lying at the base of the brain beneath the hypothalamus, it has been called the master gland as it regulates body activities. It has two parts, the anterior(front) and posterior(back). Anterior pituitary hormones stimulate endocrine or other glands to produce secretion or grow, in addition it stimulate the thyroid, adrenals and gonads. Its growth increases the rate of growth of all tissues andprolactin stimulates milk production. The posterior pituitary produces oxytocin, to stimulate uterine contractions in childbirth, and antidiuretic hormone, which regulates the volume of urine produced.
 Thyroid ; This gland is wrapped around the front of the trachea, windpipe and its hormones regulate the metabolism and growth by increasing oxygen consumpton, energy production and protein synthesis. The thyroid needs iodine from food and water to make its main hormones, thyroxine(T4) and tri-iodothronine(T3). A third hormone, calcitonin, is produced by different thyroid cells and helps parathyroid hormone to regulate calcium levels in the blood.
 Parathyroid Glands ; When chemical sensors in the four pea sized parathyroid glands behind the thyroid detect that blood calcium is too low, they secrete more calcium being released from bones into blood, more being absorbed from the intestine and more being conserved by the kidneys. The action quickly restore the blood calcium level, if it begins to get too high, the parathyroids release less hormone.
 Adrenal Glands ; One capping each kidney, the pyramid shaped, adrenal glands consist of two parts, an outer cortex and an inner medulla. The cortex produces a number of corticosteroid hormones; aldosterone, which helps to maintain adequate body water by influencing reabsorption of minerals by the kidneys; glucocorticoids which promote glucose production and help the body respond to stresses such as injury and severe anxiety; and some male hormones in both the sexes. The adrenal medulla is part of the sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system and produce adrenalin and noradrenalin inresponse to acute physical or emotional stress.  Impulses from the hypothalamus travel along sympathetic nerves to jolt the adrenal medulla into releasing its hormones to prepare the body for immediate protective action.
 Pancreas ; Scattered throughout the pancrease enqyme producing tissue are small clusters of endocrine cells, the islets of langerhans. Different cells in the islets produce hormones, insulin and glucagon, which regulate fluctuations in blood glucose levels. When blood glucose increase after a meal, insulin limits its level by speeding the entry of glucose into the cells and by accelerating conversion of glucose to glycogen for storage. Glucagon has the opposite effect; when blood glucose falls below normal, it hastens conversion of glycogen to glucose and helps the liver to convert oter nutrients into glucose.
 Testes, Ovaries : Inside the testis-connective tissue partitions divide the testis into lobules that house the coiled tubules, from which fully formed sperm travel via short ducts to the epididymis.  AND, closs section of shaft of penis contains three cylinders of erectile tissue surrounded by capsules – the two cavernous bodies in front and a spongy body behind. During sexual arousal blood distends erectile tissue and makes it hard. With its thinner capsule, the spongy body becomes less hard so that semen can be ejaculated through the urethra.  Reproductive system, controlled by Coldness meridien ; Uterus is a hollow organ as Yang, so is penis that becomes fulled with the blood. Both, uterus and penis are controlled by the Spinal Cord.  Ovaries and testies are full of substance and controlled by the brain meridien. Darkness finger controls reproductive system according to energy concept of acupuncture sujok. The Kidney is  supported by sex and reproductive function in men, and with kidney and liver in women.
 ACUPUNCTURE SuJok – Treatment is associated with the improvement or cure of HORMONAL and decreased use of medications, as the concept too emphasise at the EMOTIONAL level. Thus, with the energy concept of Acupuncture SuJok, treatment is effective to have positive results. The course of treatment is defenietly uneventful.  Moreover the treatment concept is only on the palms. If looking for EFFECTIVE CURE results ;

ATTENTION


ATTENTION 
 Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder(ADHD) is a condition in which a person has trouble paying attention and focusing on tasks. It may begin in early childhood and can continue into adulthood. These terms refer to certain types of troublesome behaviour that cause a child to underachieve academically and behave poorly, inspite of receiving a good intellect and receiving quality parenting. Without treatment, ADHD can cause problems at home, school, work, and with relationships. ADHD was once called attention deficit disorder (ADD).
 Symptoms : Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may include:
 Inattention, which is having a short attention span and being easily distracted, forgets instructions quickly, flits from task to task.
 Impulsivity, which can cause a person to do dangerous or unwise things without thinking about the consequences, also is short tempered.
 Hyperactivity, which is inappropriate or excessive activity, restlessness, fidgeting, inability to keep still.
 These symptoms affect people in all age groups who have ADHD. But typical behavior varies by age.
 In preschool-age children, symptoms may be hard to identify. Normal behavior in young children periodically includes all of the major symptoms. ADHD is distinguished from normal behavior by the severity and consistency of symptoms.The presence of ADHD may be indicated by:
 Low grades or test scores, including achievement tests.
 Poor organization and study skills.
 Socialization problems and feeling rejected by peers.
 Dislike of school and frustration with school work.
 Messiness, social clumsiness.
 Mood swings, instability (never satisfied;nags)
 Specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, which involves problems with language, reading, writing and maths.
 Teens between the ages of 13 and 18 may be in better control of disruptive behavior related to hyperactivity. Other problems that began in earlier years may continue or become worse when ADHD is not treated. Teens with inattention problems who previously managed to cope may start to fall behind in schoolwork. This is especially true when major changes occur, such as starting at a new school or going to college.
 Symptoms of ADHD in adults may not be as noticeable. Many adults with ADHD have not been diagnosed and treated. These people can develop problems such as depression and difficulty maintaining a job.
 There are several other conditions with symptoms similar to ADHD. For example, sometimes bipolar disorder and ADHD can be confused. It can be difficult to determine whether symptoms are caused by ADHD, another condition, or both.
 These symptoms can be reduced or overcome by a calm environment at home and at school; following a regular daily routine, firm but flexible discipline, clear, simple communication and protection of their self esteem.
 ACUPUNCTURE SuJok – Treatment is associated with the improvement or cure of ADHD and decreased use of medications, as the concept too emphasise at the EMOTIONAL level. Thus, with the energy concept of Acupuncture SuJok, treatment is effective to have positive results. The course of treatment is definitely uneventful, even in both the cases be it Hyper or Hypo.  Moreover the treatment concept is only on the palms. If looking for EFFECTIVE CURE results.

THYROID


THYROID   
 Thyroid gland is a soft, butterfly shaped that lies wrapped around the windpipe below the Adam’s Apple. Its function is to secrete thyroid hormones that help regulate metabolism.  Essential hormones – thyroxine-T4 and tri-iodothyronine-T3 and issues them into the blood vessels than run through the gland. The numbers refer to the amount of atoms of iodine contained in the hormones. T3 is the more powerful while T4 is released by the thyroid in larger amounts, but is mostly converted to T3 in the liver and kidneys.  The thyroid gland is controlled by the pituitary, which is located at the base of the brain and affects the thyroid gland by producing a hormone called thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), which prompts the thyroid to release more T4 and T3.
 The effect of T3 and T4 is to increase the basal metabolic rate of almost all the cells in the body to increase the fat and carbohydrate metabolism boost protein synthesis increase heart rate and blood flow to other organs.  It also regulates the heart and the brain in children and for normal reproductive functioning. The thyroid gland also contains some other structures that are important in bone and calcium metabolism. 
 The pituitary contains special cells that are very sensitive to levels of thyroid hormone in the blood.  If too low, it secretes a hormone called thyrotropin stimulating
 hormone (TSH). This in turn stimulates the thyroid to produce more thyroid hormone. When the level of thyroid hormone in the blood goes back to normal, the pituitary stops producing extra TSH. If there’s too much thyroid hormone in the blood: the pituitary releases less TSH, and the thyroid makes less thyroid hormone. The hypothalamus has a hand in this too. It can stimulate or suppress TSH production from the pituitary, by means of a hormone released from the hypothalamus in response to environmental changes from the brain, called thyroid releasing hormone (TRH). The whole system is sometimes called the ‘hypothalamic -pituitary -thyroid axis’.
 Iodine is found in most foods and is especially prevalent in seafood and dairy products. It’s often added to foods in the form of salt too. However, some mountainous  areas have soil that is low in iodine. As a result, foods grown there are iodine deficient.
 Hyperthyroidism   is when the thyroid becomes overactive and releases too much T3 and T4 into the blood. The following symptoms notices ; leads to higher rate of physical as well as mental activity, sweating, excessive nervousness, insomnia, diarrhoea, exophthalmos,condition in which eyes bulge abnormally, weight loss, despite an increased appetite, nervousness, agitation and anxiety, tiredness, rapid pulse, tremor of the hands, sweating and sensitivity to heat,  and can lead to liver damage and heart failure.
 Hypothyroidism can also be caused by a lack of iodine in the diet, which prevents the thyroid from making enough hormone. Sometimes it can arise when part, or all, of the thyroid has been removed for treatment of cancer or hyperthyroidism.  It can also accompany other inflammatory conditions of the thyroid. But in some cases, the disease destroys so much thyroid tissue that the gland can’t produce enough thyroid hormone. As a result, hypothyroidism sets in.  Symptoms include: lethargy and fatigue, feeling cold (even on warm days), unusual weight gain, depression, reduced concentration (brain fog), puffiness of the face, hair loss and thin or brittle hair, dry skin, constipation, goitre, slow speech, slow reflexes, poor memory, mental retardation.
 According to the energy concept of ACUPUNCTURE SuJok, in either case energy of Heat excess or deficiet is manifested.  One should get the Acupuncture treatment – as it can help improve the overall health of thyroid gland as well as other emotional aspects such as stress, anxiety, anger and frustration, which are often associated with the thyroid gland problems either overactive or under active, in both the cases the vital energy is in disharmony.  Thus, the  ACUPUNCTURE SuJok is effective to have CURE effect of Thyroid. The remission of the disease can be achieved and medicament’s therapy simultaneously can be reduced or eliminated altogether.  The course of treatment is definitely uneventful.

URINE Albumin


URINE Albumin 
 Urine with protein or albumin is related to Hypertension or Diabetic.  Kidneys normally prevent large molecules such as albumin from being excreted in the urine, high levels of urinary albumin excretion, called albuminuria, also indicate kidney is some how not functioning properly.  It also reflect dysfunction of endothelial cells throughout the body, which in turn may be a precursor to hypertension or cardiovascular disease.  The urinary albumin : creatinine ratio is a useful measure of renal function used in diabetic renal disease.
 Diabetes is a condition caused by too much glucose(sugar) in the blood.  Normally, the amount of sugar in the blood is controlled by a hormone called insulin, which is produced by the pancreas gland. When food is digested and enters in the bloodstream, insulin moves any glucose out of the blood and into the cells, where it is broken down to produce energy.  However, in those with diabetes, the body is unable to break down the glucose into energy. This is because there is either not enough insulin to move the glucose, or because the insulin that is there, does not work properly.
 The following may also affect the results;  Severe emotional stress.  Strenuous exercise.  Receiving a special dye (contrast media) for a radiology before the urine test. Urine contaminated with vaginal secretions. This test is most often performed when kidney disease is suspected.  
 Albumin is a protein made by the liver. A serum albumin test measures the amount of this protein in the clear liquid portion of the blood.  This test can help determine if a patient has liver or kidney disease, or if the body is not absorbing enough protein.
 Albumin helps move many small molecules through the blood, including bilirubin, calcium, progesterone, and medications. It plays an important role in keeping the fluid from the blood from leaking out into the tissues.  Because albumin is made by the liver, decreased serum albumin may be a sign of liver disease. It can also result from kidney disease, which allows albumin to escape into the urine. Decreased albumin may also be explained by malnutrition or a low protein diet.
 Blood is made up of two parts: Fluid (plasma or serum) Cells. Plasma contains various substances. Serum is the fluid part that remains after the blood is allowed to clot in a test tube. Specifically, serum is the fluid part of blood after a substance called fibrinogen has been removed.  Cells in the blood include red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.   Blood helps move oxygen, nutrients, waste products, and other materials through the body. It helps control body temperature, fluid balance, and  the body’s acid-base balance. 
 Blood clots are the clumps that occur when the blood hardens from a liquid to a solid (coagulates). A blood clot that forms inside a blood vessel or within the heart and remains there is called a thrombus.  A thrombus that travels from the blood vessel or heart to another location in the body is called an embolus. The disorder is called an embolism. For example, an embolus that occurs in the lungs is called a pulmonary embolism.  Sometimes other materials can act like an embolus and block blood flow, including: Air.  Amniotic fluid.  A piece of atherosclerotic plaque.  Fat clumps.  Small pieces of tumor.
 It has been observed with the concept of SuJok Acupuncture it can control in a very effective way irrespective of Diabetes or Hypertension graph. One must opt for the treatment concept through this to have total effectiveness.  The beauty of the acupuncture is that each treatment is catered to the needs of an individual. Acupuncture’s energy concept on palm will be chosen for the overall well being with the objective of increasing circulation of the blood, vital energy and calming the nervous system and removing the toxins, if any.

SYNCOPE


SYNCOPE
 Syncope is manifested by sudden fainting, pallor, cold limbs and loss of consciousness, which are often resulted from emotional excitement, fright or debilitation and over straining.  Syncope of deficiency vital energy is often caused by general deficiency of the primary energy and failure to ascending due to over strain or grief and fright, exhaustion of energy after profuse bleeding. Main manifestations; feeble breathing with mouth agape, spontaneous sweating, pallor, cold limbs, deep and thready pulse. Resulting, analysis could be; dizziness, vertigo, loss of consciousness, feeble breathing are all with sudden perversion of its flow of energy, sinking of energy in the spleen and stomach and failure of the clear yang in ascending. Cold limbs are caused by failure of yang energy to reach there. Weakness of primary energy and disabilities of vital energy in controlling the pores are sjpwm om spontaneous sweating and mouth agape. Deep thready pulse also suggests deficiency of energy.
 BUT, syncope of excess vital energy is mainly due to emotional disturbances, such as anger, fear and fright leading to deranged flow of energy, which rushes upwards to the heart and chest, blocking the windpipe and disturbing the mind, or due to upsurging of liver yang followed by perversion of blood flow after a fit of anger, leading to disturbance of the mind and resulting in loss of consciousness. Main manifestations; coarse breathing, rigid limbs, clenched jaws, deep and excess type pulse. Resulting, analysis could be; perversion of energy after a fit of anger makes qi activity impeded and blood rushing upward together with qi to disturb the mind and hence sudden collapse, loss of consciousness, clenched jaws and rigid limbs.  Obstruction of energy in the lungs gives rise to coarse breathing. Deep and excess type pulse is a sign of excess syndrome.
 Syncope manifested by sudden loss of consciousness should be distinguished from wind stroke and epilepsy.  Wind stroke; loss of consciousness is complicated by hemiplegia and deviated mouth, usually, there are sequelae after restoration to consciousness.  Epilepsy; loss of consciousness is accompanied by convulsions, expectoration of frothy saliva or yelling, when the consciousness is regained the patient becomes as normal as usual.  This condition includes simple fainting, postural hypo-tension, hypoglycemia, hysteria etc.  If there is deficiency syndrome, one has to promote tonifying direction or if there is excess syndrome, energy to be in sedating direction so that it may regulate the flow of energy.
 ACUPUNCTURE SuJok states that vital energy is the animating force behind life, the cosmic forces of Nature, and is the root of all things. It is said that if one stays in touch with vital energy, ones life will be healthy in all its phases, be it BODY. MIND. EMOTIONS!  ACUPUNCTURE itself is a powerful medicine, which aids in strengthening the immune system and serves to prevent diseases, control pain and increase both the ability to function and the quality of peoples lives.
