Hypochondria


HYPOCHONDRIA
Hypochondria are a belief that symptoms are signs of a serious illness, even though there is no medical evidence to support the presence of an illness, also known as Hypochondriasis, a type of somatoform disorder, mental illness in which a person has symptoms of a medical illness, but the symptoms cannot be fully explained by an actual physical disorder.
Such people are very much worried about getting a disease or are sure they have a disease, even after medical tests show they do not have any such disease. Further, these people often misinterpret minor health problems or normal body functions as symptoms of a serious disease. The symptoms are not under the person’s voluntary control, and can cause great distress and/or can interfere with a person’s normal functioning.
As such people excessively focus on the self-health, they have an unrealistic fear of having a serious disease. People with hypochondria are not in a place to control their fears and worries. The way people with hypochondria think about their physical symptoms can make them more likely to have this condition. As they focus on and worry about physical sensations, a cycle of symptoms and worry begins, which can be difficult to stop.
It is important to realize that people with hypochondria do not purposely create these symptoms (malingering). They are unable to control the symptoms.
The symptoms they describe can range from general complaints, such as pain or tiredness, to concerns about normal body functions, such as breathing or stomach noises. People with hypochondria are not faking or lying about their symptoms; they truly believe they are sick.
The signs that a person might have hypochondria include:
•The person has a history of going to many doctors. S/he may even “shop around” for a doctor who will agree that he or she has a serious illness.
•The person recently experienced a loss or stressful event.
•The person is overly concerned about a specific organ or body system.
•The person’s symptoms or area of concern might shift or change.
•A doctor’s reassurance does not calm the person’s fears; they believe the doctor is wrong or made a mistake.
•The person’s concern about illness interferes with his or her work, family, and social life.
•The person may suffer from anxiety, nervousness, and/or depression.
People who have a history of physical or sexual abuse are more likely to have this disorder. However, this does not mean that every person with a hypochondria disorder has a history of abuse.
They seek out reassurance from family, friends, or health care providers. They feel better for a short time at most, and then begin to worry about the same symptoms, or about new symptoms.
Symptoms may shift and change, and are often vague. Such people often look at their own body.
Those who are affected may recognize that their fear of having a serious disease is unreasonable or unfounded.
Expectations (prognosis)
The disorder is usually long-term (chronic), unless psychological factors or mood and anxiety disorders are treated.
But SuJok acupuncture, a powerful tool to cater problems even at emotional level, is enough to give positive results to such people. Otherwise also, when the liver is diseased, it causes pain in the body especially below the ribs on both sides, and then refers to the lower abdomen. As the meridian of the liver supplies the hypochondriac regions, and the liver is externally and internally related with the gallbladder, the occurrence of hypochondriac pain is mostly concerned with disorders of the liver and gall bladder.
The liver is situated in the hypochondriac region. If it is diseased, it will cause hypochondriac pain. The dominant energy of the liver in category of wind prefers to be in a harmonious state with free flow of qi. Emotional depression may restrain the liver function, causing poor circulation of qi in the meridian, often resulting in hypochondriac pain.
If there is any stagnation of energy of the liver or traumatic injuries such as sprain or contusion may cause stasis of blood in collaterals, resulting in hypochondriac pain. Or if there is sprain or strain means deficiency of essence and blood.
Excess energy means stagnation of qi with the main symptoms stifling sensation in the chest, sighing, poor appetite, bitter taste in the mouth, string taut pulse and thin white tongue coating.
Deficient energy means stagnation of blood with fixed stabbing pain in hypochondriac region, intensified by pressure and at night, dark purplish tongue proper, deep and hesitant pulse. It is to be considered if there is lingering dull pain in hypochondriac region, dryness of mouth, irritability, dizziness, blurring of vision, red tongue with little coating, weak, or rapid and thread pulse.
Thus, the SuJok acupuncture is effective to have CURE effect of an ailment. The remission of the disease can be achieved and medicaments’ therapy simultaneously can be reduced or eliminated altogether. The course of treatment is definitely uneventful.

Mammary Gland


The endocrine system that regulates the mammary glands and become functional in response to the hormonal changes associated with parturition. A woman who has not borne children consists of a conical disk of glandular tissue of mammary gland, which is encase in variable quantities of fat that give it its characteristic shape. The glandular tissue itself is made up of 15–20 lobes composed of solid cords of ductal cells; each lobe is sub-divided into many smaller lobules, separated by broad fibrous suspensory bands, which connect the skin with the fascia, or sheet of connective tissue, that covers the pectoral muscles beneath the breast. A separate excretory duct drains each lobe. These converge beneath the nipple, where they widen into milk reservoirs, before narrowing again to emerge as pinpoint openings at the summit of the nipple.
Hormones induce the real secretion of milk – prolactin from the pituitary and somatomammotropin from the placenta. At the end of lactation the mammary glands and areolae return almost but not completely to their state before pregnancy. After menopause the glands atrophy and are largely replaced by connective tissue and fat.
Diseases and abnormalities of the breast;
Painful breasts may occur when estrogens are present in large amounts, as at puberty, during pregnancy, prior to menstruation, or after administration of the estrogens.
Fibrocystic disease, may result in later reproductive life from the cumulative effect of the ebb and flow of endocrine stimulation with each menstrual cycle; this produces nodular fibrosis—or lumps of fibrous tissue—and cysts of various sizes, also called chronic cystic mastitis. The condition can usually be distinguished from cancer because it is intermittently painful and tends to subside after menstrual periods. It may predispose to carcinoma, however. Early biopsy is indicated for any nodules that persist. The condition of such abnormalities of the breast such as;
Stiff tissue of the mammary gland
Dry and peeling skin
Hair growth
Stiff fibrous masses
Galactorrhea
Acute pains or painful breasts
It is advisable to put some seed or round pulse like white pepper on the prescribed dot that will stimulate the correspondence area of that particular meridian and stimulate on the mount.
Acupuncture SuJok methods, from the simplest to complex ones, are self-sufficient for coping with pain and obtaining a stable remission of even chronic disease. The SuJok method is a natural way of treatment, and the process of normalisation of the patient’s state, beginning during treatment, goes on after the active intervention stopped. The most effective and fast acting in treatment of chronic ailment is six or eight energies therapy in the structure of the stomach meridian after preliminary correction of the emotional sphere, in combination with biorhythmic SuJok acupuncture and basic treatments.
The beauty of SuJok is that each treatment is catered to the needs of an individual patient. Its energy concept on palm will be chosen for overall well-being with the goal of increasing circulation of the blood and vital energy.
Key Points-“acupuncture” describes a family of ways involving the stimulation of anatomical points on the body using a variety of techniques. The technique that has been most often studied scientifically involves penetrating the skin with thin, solid, metallic needles that are manipulated by the hands or by electrical stimulation. Acupuncture needles are metallic, solid, and hair-thin. People experience acupuncture differently, but most feel no or minimal pain as the needles is inserted. Some people feel energized by treatment, while others feel relaxed. Improper needle placement, movement of the patient, or a defect in the needle can cause soreness and pain during treatment. This is why it is important to seek treatment from a qualified acupuncture practitioner.

• Reduce fat intake, as extra fat increases estrogen production. More fat in the body and consuming alcohol increases estrogen levels especially after menopause leading to an increased risk.
• Limit or Decrease alcohol consumption or avoid it altogether.
• Women who have undergone menopause and have taken hormone therapy for more than four years with estrogen and progesterone have high chances. It is better to avoid hormonal therapy.
• Estrogen levels having on higher side may increase the risk factor.
• Breast-feeding will lower the risk.
• Women who never breast-feed or not feeding their children are at high risk.
• Conceiving before 30 years of age. Late child-bearing: Women bearing children after the age of 30 years and women who never bear children are at high-risk of being affected with breast cancer.
• Chances are high as the age increases.
• Family history: Chances are high if anybody in the family has suffered from breast cancer indicating genes are responsible.
• Personal History: If women had breast cancer in one of the breast, there is a likelihood of getting affected to the other breast also. Chances of recurrences are high to the same part or to different parts of the body.
• Menstruation: Women with menstruation beginning before the age of 12 years and menopause occurring after the age of 55 years are at high-risk of getting affected with breast cancer.
• Radiation therapy: Young women who have exposed their breasts to radiations due to some diseased condition like Hodgkin’s lymphoma are likely to develop breast cancer in the later ages.
• Pain isn’t usually a sign of breast cancer. If you have pain in one or both breasts, rest assured: It’s probably due to hormonal changes, a benign cyst, a ligament strain or another condition.
• More common warning signs of breast cancer include a palpable lump, a change in the size or shape of the breast, puckering of the skin, nipple changes (like scaling or discharge), or increased warmth.
• Women with very dense breasts are twice more likely to develop breast cancer. “When breast tissue is dense, the cells grow and multiply at a faster rate.
• Get your folate. While experts say that an overall healthy diet may help prevent breast cancer, a growing body of research suggests that getting enough of the B vitamin folate (in leafy green vegetables, beans and fortified cereals)
Most importantly;
a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells.
b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in gastrointestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soymilk, cancer cells will starve.
Water-best to drink purified, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic avoid it.
SUJOK ACUPUNCTURE: The goal of Acupuncture is to promote health and ease pain and suffering. The perspective from which an acupuncturist views health and sickness hinges on concepts of “vital energy,” “energetic balance” and “energetic imbalance.” The acupuncturist assesses the flow and distribution of this “vital energy” within its pathways, known as “meridians and channels”. The acupuncturist is able to influence health and sickness by stimulating certain areas along these “meridians”. Traditionally fine, slender needles stimulated these areas or “acupoints” that focuses only in the hands or feet. Today, many more forms of stimulation are incorporated, including herbs, electricity, magnets and lasers. Still, the aim remains the same – adjust the “vital energy” so the proper amount reaches the proper place at the proper time. This helps your body heal itself. Undoubtedly with SuJok Acupuncture there is an effective results even if of Breast Cancer. The concept of treatment of SuJok Acupuncture is in miniature form of hands or feet’s.
