PANCREATITIS


PANCREATITIS
Acute or chronic inflammation of the pancreas, the gland that lies behind the stomach and produces insulin and enzymes used in digestion of food. Located deep in abdomen, the pancreas is an organ that has two types of glands: the exocrine glands (responsible for producing juice that helps break down food) and endocrine glands (which release hormones that help regulate blood sugar). The term acute pancreatitis is used when the pancreas can recover from the inflammation with its structure and function intact. In chronic pancreatitis, inflammation of part or all the gland persists when its cause has been corrected, and it may lead to progressive and permanent loss of the glands functions. Chronic pancreatitis may first become clear with an acute attack or may cause gradually worsening persistent abdominal pain with progressive symptoms of inadequate absorption of nutrients and development of diabetes mellitus because the pancreas cannot produce enough insulin.
Causes – The pancreatic duct joins the common bile duct before entering the duodenum, the first part of the small intestine. The most common cause of acute pancreatitis is temporary blockage of the pancreatic duct by a gall stone. Less common causes include injury to the pancreas, other obstructions to the pancreatic duct such as stones that may form when the blood calcium is too high, viral infection by mumps, alcohol abuse, adverse reactions to certain drugs or a peptic ulcer that has penetrated the gut wall and damaged the pancreas.
Symptoms –
•Acute pancreatitis causes sudden severe upper and central abdominal pain that spreads through to the back, and often accompanied by vomiting and shock
•The skin and eyes appears to be yellowish.
•Urination dark,cloudy.
•Pain in the upper abdomen that may radiate to the back
•Weakness and fatigue
•Nausea and vomiting
•Weight loss
Risk – The risk factors for damaging the pancreatitis may include;
•smoking
•diabetes
•chronic pancreatitis, most often the result of alcoholism, and less often of cystic fibrosis.
Diagnosis –
Diagnosis is by finding increased levels of pancreatic enzymes in the blood and tests to discover gallstones or other causes are performed. After an attack symptoms usually subside and blood enzymes return to normal within few days. It is based on blood tests of pancreatic function and x-rays, ultrasound.
Prevention – the following may help to reduce the risk, if:
•Quit smoking
•Following a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and the whole grains •Maintaining a healthy weight.
•Getting regular exercise.
SuJokacupuncture’ therapy stands as a highly efficient method of non medicamentous treatment of such patients.

GASTRITIS


GASTRITIS
Inflammation, which may be acute or chronic of the membrane lining the stomach. Acute gastritis may occur because of irritation of the stomach lining by alcohol or  certain drugs (particularly non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs), poisons or food poisoning.
Symptoms may include upper abdominal bloating and pain, nausea and vomiting. There may be flecks of blood in the vomit. A viral infection of the stomach  ‘epidemic acute gastritis or gastric flu’ causes similar symptoms as well as chills, fever and diarrhoea. Pain could be at tip of the stomach, bitter taste when belching, when serious gastritis vomit or pass motion with dark blood. The excess of coldness energy is indicated by attacks of intense gastric pains during which patient feels to be dying, also by feeling of paleness and cold sweating. Stomach may be hyper acid erosive gastritis, intensifying on an empty stomach and early in the morning, eructation, heartburn after eating sour food. Eliminating any possible cause of acute gastritis of this type, plus rest and a light diet usually leads to recovery. Other types of gastritis include the following.
• Acute stress gastritis is a much more serious condition that can develop rapidly when a person is severely stressed physically for example when suffering from extensive burns or injury, head injury or organ failure. At first multiple superficial ulcers of the stomach lining develop with nausea and indigestion that the patient may be too ill to complain of. Over a few days the ulcers may penetrate deeper layers of the stomach wall, and can lead to torrential bleeding and shock.
• Chronic erosive gastritis is characterised by persistent or recurring multiple ulcers, superficial or deeper, of the stomach lining, causing vague indigestion or gnawing upper abdominal pain similar to that of peptic ulcer disease. The condition may be the result of chronic use of aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, chronic alcoholism, crohn’s disease or some viral infections or there may be no apparent cause. Diagnosis is by gastroscopy.
• Chronic non erosive gastritis is generalised inflammation of the stomach lining, believed to be due to excessive growth of the organism. This condition generally causes vague indigestion and may increase susceptibility to peptic ulcer disease of the stomach. It is more common over the age.
ACUPUNCTURE SuJok provides excellent treatment for acute or chronic gastritis pain. It reduces inflammation and increase blood circulation. One may easily eliminate the gastritis through acupuncture SuJok.
 The beauty of the SuJok acupuncture is that each treatment is catered to the needs of an individual patient. It’s treatment of energy concept is only on the hand/ or foot chosen for overall well being with the objective of increasing circulation of the blood and vital energy.

HICCUP


HICCUP
 Hiccup is an involuntary spasm of the glottis and diaphragm, causing the characteristic sound. Occasional attack of hiccup suggests a mild case and can be removed without medication, but if it persists, treatment is required. Hiccup is mostly caused by irregular diet, stagnation of liver qi and presence of cold in the stomach, leading to upward perversion of the stomach qi instead of descending.  Irregular food intake causes failure of the stomach qi to descend or emotional frustration stagnates the liver qi, leading to upward perversion of the stomach qi. The attack of the stomach by cold, oer eating of raw and cold food or taking drugs of cold nature gives rise to retaining of the stomach and upward perversion of qi.
 Retention of food;
 Main manifestations: loud hiccups, epigastric and abdominal distension, anorexia, thick, sticky tongue coating rolling and forceful pulse. Basically retention of food in the stomach disturbs the function of the spleen and stomach in transportation and transformation and impedes the qi activities in the middle.
 Stagnation of qi;
 Main manifestations: continual hiccups, distending pain and feeling of oppression in the chest and hypochondria, thin tongue coating, string taut and forceful pulse.  Basically the liver qi, if stagnated, will attack the stomach, causing upward perversion of stomach qi, therefore, hiccup, distending pain in the chest and hypochondria and feeling of oppression appear.
 Cold in the stomach;
 Main manifestations: slow and forceful hiccups which may be relieved by heat and aggravated by cold, discomfort in the epigastrium, white, moist tongue coating slow pulse. Basically the stomach qi fails to descend because of stagnated cold, so hiccup is forceful. In case of disturbance of the stomach qi, discomfort in the epigastrium occurs. If cold gets heat, smooth circulation of qi results and then hiccup is relieved by if cold gets worse, hiccup is aggravated. White, moist tongue coating and slow pulse indicate the presence of cold in the stomach.
 SuJok acupuncture is a new stage in the development of Oriental medicine. Highly effective for treatment, easy and accessible to learn, simple to apply, Su Jok methods have attracted much attention to and interest in this system all over the world.  One of the important feature of this system, That is, the fast-coming effect of the method. Su Jok therapy extremely quickly arrests pain syndromes of various etiology. Since the Su Jok method has a fast and effective removal of the pain syndrome makes the treatment period shorter and the patients cure quicker. One may get the results even from the first session itself.

LIVER


LIVER 
The liver function is to promote the free flow of vital energy, dominates the tendons and open into the eye.  Liver’s vital energy stagnation and emotions – according to energy concept of Onnuri Medicine, emotional disorders may be associated with a number of different patterns of disharmony; however, anger, irritability, and frustration are all signs that the energy is not flowing smoothly, properly. The liver is responsible for the smooth flow of energy (life force) throughout the body and for smoothing our emotions too. When the liver’s function of moving energy considered to be as wind and with new research it is considered to be as coldness is disrupted,can become stuck,referred as liver energy stagnation. Stagnation is one of the most common patterns of disharmony observed in patients. In addition to irritability and moodiness, changes of the liver mainly manifest themselves in dysfunctions of the liver in storing blood and in promoting the free flow of energy, and in disorders of the tendons.
Signs and symptoms may include ;
 – Distending pain in the area below the ribs
 – Pain or discomfort anywhere along the sides of the body
 – Stuffiness of the chest
 – Distending or wandering pain in coastal and hypochondriac regions, in prolonged cases pricking pain or palpable mass may be present
 – Sighing
 – Abdominal distention and discomfort
 – Stomachache that improves after massage or Stomachache that worsens with anger
 – Nausea
 – Sour regurgitation
 – Belching
 – Diarrhea or constipation
 – Feeling of a lump in the throat or possibly a foreign body sensation in the throat
 – Irregular woman’s cycle, painful periods and distention of the breasts prior to periods
 – Liver qi stagnation is commonly associated with PMS.
 – Depression. Mood swings. Sighing. Hiccups. Frustration. Inappropriate anger. Sensation of a lump in throat. Difficulty swallowing.
 – Bitter taste in mouth
 – Poor appetite
 – Churning sensation in stomach.
The tongue may be purplish dark in color or there are purplish spots on the tongue.
Move Livers vital energy! The liver is responsible for the smooth flowing of energy (life force) throughout the body. When the liver functions smoothly, physical and  emotional activity throughout the body also runs smoothly. So, for optimum health, move your energy!
Stretch – The liver controls the tendons, it stores blood during periods of rest and then releases it to the tendons in times of activity, maintaining tendon health and flexibility. Incorporate a morning stretch into your routine. Try yoga or tai chi.
Eye Exercises – The liver opens into the eyes. Although all the organs have some connection to the health of the eyes, the liver is connected to proper eye function. Remember to take breaks when looking at a computer monitor for extended periods of time and do eye exercises.
Eat Green – Green is the color of the liver. Eating young plants – fresh, leafy greens, sprouts, and immature cereal grasses – can improve the liver’s overall functions and aid in the movement of energy.
Try Something Sour – Foods and drinks with sour tastes are thought to stimulate the liver’s vital energy. Put lemon slices in your drinking water, use vinegar and olive oil for your salad dressing and garnish your sandwich with a slice of dill pickle.
Do More Outdoor Activities – Outside air helps liver qi flow. If you have been feeling irritable, find an outdoor activity to smooth out that liver energy stagnation. Try hiking or take up golf.
Enjoy Milk Thistle Tea – Milk thistle helps protect liver cells from incoming toxins and encourages the liver to cleanse itself of damaging substances, such as alcohol, medications, pesticides, environmental toxins, and even heavy metals such as mercury.
The syndrome is often due to mental irritation which impairs the function of the liver in promoting the free flow of qi and results in stagnation of the liver energy, leading to retardation of the energy circulation thus presenting mental depression, irritability, distending pain in the coastal and hypochondriac regions, breasts, stuffiness in the chest and sighing. Transverse invasion of the spleen and stomach by the liver energy produces epigastric and abdominal distension and pain, poor appetite, belching.  Retardation of the energy circulation allows damp to collect and phlegm may be formed; the phlegm and energy may accumulate in the throat. Affected by the dysfunction of energy, the circulation of both energy and blood is retarded and disharmony of the conception vessel meridians may result. This can cause irregular menstruation and dysmenorrhea.  Long standing obstruction of the liver energy, leading to stagnation of energy and blood, may elicit palpable masses, accompanied by pricking pain in the coastal and hypochondriac regions, a purple tongue or a tongue with purplish spots and a string taunt pulse.
The blood circulation relies upon the propelling function of energy. Although the heart and lung play the main role in the circulation of energy and blood, the function of the liver in maintaining the free flow of energy is also needed to prevent stagnation’s of energy and blood. The liver stores blood and its meridian ascends to connect with the eyes. The liver energy is in communication with the eyes. Whether the liver function is normal or not often reflects on the eye. Deficiency of the yin and blood of of the liver may lead to dryness of the eyes, blurred vision or even night blindness. Wind heat in the liver meridian may give rise to redness, swelling and pain in the eyes.
AS, SuJok is a component of Onnuri Medicine, and involves inserting of very thin, fine, metal needles into the specific ‘correspondence points’ or ‘triorigin joints’ or meridians located on the miniature form of hands or foot, connecting the surface of the body energetically with the internal organs. The theory is that inserting the needles stimulates these ‘energy points’ and unblocks the natural flow of light energy (qi or chi) through meridians, six ki or eight ki. Blocked qi is thought to cause disease. Unblocking qi allows  body to heal itself.  Scientific evidence=One theory suggests the needling encourages the release of endorphins natural pain killers produced by the brain) and sets off an inflammatory response that allows the body to heal itself. Another theory is that acupuncture has a powerful effect on the mind, which may also help to activate the body’s pain-relieving mechanisms.  The remission of the disease of LIVER can be achieved and medicamentous therapy simultaneously can be reduced or eliminated altogether.  The course of treatment is defenietly uneventful.  It [acupuncture] provides maximum benefits without the dangerous side effects associated with many of the approaches of conventional medicine. Try effectiveness results with smile.

PAIN


PAIN
An unpleasant localised sensation that can range from mild discomfort to agony. Pain results from stimulation of special sensory nerve receptors in the skin or within the body by tissue injury or disease, or by stretching or spasm of muscle. The sensation of pain has the important role of drawing attention to the fact that something is wrong, forcing the sufferer to look for and correct the cause. Usually the site nature and intensity of pain give an indication of its cause and importance. The perception of pain varies both between individuals and in the same person at different times. Referred pain is felt in areas other than the damaged part of the body , for example in the arm during a heart attack. Phantom pain feels as if it comes from a limb or part that has been amputated because that  is the way the brain interprets impulses from nerves in the stump. 
Acupuncture for Pain – Physical pain is a common occurrence for many.  People use acupuncture for various types of pain. Back pain is the most commonly reported use, followed by joint pain, neck pain, and headache. Acupuncture is being studied for its efficacy in alleviating many kinds of pain. There are promising findings in some conditions, such as chronic low-back pain and osteoarthritis of the knee.
Pain is a feeling triggered in the nervous system. It may be sharp or dull, off-and-on or steady, localized (such as back pain) or all over (such as muscle aches from the flu). Sometimes, pain alerts us to injuries and illnesses that need attention. Although pain usually goes away once the underlying problem is addressed, it can last for weeks, months, or even years. Chronic pain may be due to an ongoing condition (such as arthritis) or to abnormal activity in pain-sensing regions of the brain, or the cause may not be known.  Acupuncture practitioners stimulate specific points on the body—most often by inserting thin needles through the skin. In traditional Chinese medicine theory, this regulates the flow of qi (vital energy) along pathways known as meridians. But in SUJOK acupuncture stimulation or micro needling is only on the miniature form of hands or feets.
A analysis of acupuncture data found that pain or musculoskeletal complaints accounted top. Back pain was the most common, followed by joint pain, neck pain, severe headache/migraine, and recurring pain.  Acupuncture has been studied for a wide range of pain conditions, such as postoperative dental pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, headache, low-back pain, menstrual cramps, myofascial pain, osteoarthritis, and tennis elbow. Overall, it can be very effective in controlling the pain syndrome.
Acupuncture has also been studied for a variety of other pain conditions, including arm and shoulder pain, pregnancy-related pelvic and back pain, and temporomandibular joint (jaw) dysfunction.
PAIN may be specified as;  
Neuropathic: Pain caused by damage to or malfunction of the nerves themselves. The peripheral nerve system includes all the nerves that lead to and from the spinal cord. These nerves transmit pain signals to the brain. If they are injured, neuropathic pain may develop — pain caused by injury to the nerves themselves. The other term peripheral neuropathy, which is another way to say neuropathic pain since it is damage to the peripheral nerve system. Damage to the central nervous system can also trigger neuropathic pain. Chronic neuropathic pain can be especially challenging to treat because it can be difficult to pinpoint where and how the nerves are damaged.
Nociceptive: Nociceptors are the receptors in the nervous system that get activated when there’s an injury. If there isn’t an injury from outside the nervous system, the nociceptors aren’t active. Nociceptive pain, then, is pain caused by an injury to something other than the nerves. In chronic pain, though, the nociceptors may still be sending pain messages long after the original injury has healed. The various types of chronic nociceptive pain are:
somatic – Soma means “body,” so somatic pain comes from injuries to the outer body—skin, muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, bones, etc. It’s generally easy to identify where somatic pain comes from, and the pain can be sharp or throbbing (depends on what part of body is injured).
Bone pain is a somatic pain. Bones can ache. If the bones have been weakened by another condition, such as cancer or osteoporosis, then you can have a very achy and very intense dull pain. Bone pain can also be acute: if break in a bone, for example, that is acute pain. If the bone heals but still have a throbbing pain (it may be constant or it may come and go), that can be considered chronic bone pain. Muscle pain is a somatic pain. Chronic muscle pain is more than a strained muscle, means muscles may have a chronic muscle spasm that causes them to be tense. This form of muscle overload can cause long-lasting pain, especially in the back. Muscle pain can also develop as part of certain chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia.
visceral – viscera are internal organs—specifically those contained in abdomen and chest cavity. The stomach is an example of a visceral organ. Not every organ has nociceptors, so not every internal organ can send pain messages if it’s been injured (the lungs, for example, don’t have nociceptors).
However, if an injure to organ that has nociceptors, you will probably feel a deep, achy pain, and it will be hard to pinpoint where the pain is coming from. Visceral pain can also have referred pain. That means that the brain can’t distinguish the pain from the organ from pain from another part of body. For example, if having kidney problem, then low back may be painful.
Figuring out, chronic pain may be a difficult process, especially since many types of chronic pain may not come from any noticeable injury or disease. Also, since pain is such a subjective experience.
Chronic pain falls into a couple of broad categories such as : neuropathic pain: Pain caused by damage to or malfunction of the nerves themselves. nociceptive pain: Nociceptors are the receptors in the nervous system that get activated when there’s an injury. If there isn’t an injury from outside the nervous system, the nociceptors aren’t active. Nociceptive pain, then, is pain caused by an injury to something other than the nerves. In chronic pain, though, the nociceptors may still be sending pain messages long after the original injury has healed.
Pain is a very subjective experience, though, so we can’t say something as categorical as “All chronic pain patients will feel this way.” It is possible to say that chronic pain takes on many forms. It can be: throbbing, aching, shooting, electric, burning, sharp, feeling stiff, feeling tight, feeling sore. It can lead to other problems, especially social and emotional ones. Chronic pain may: lead to sleeplessness, drain you of energy, lead to depression, make you not want to do activities you typically enjoy, weaken your immune system because so much of your body’s energy is spent dealing with the pain.  A lot of these other problems build off each other, so you may hear the phrase “vicious cycle” when talking about chronic pain. For example: The pain makes it difficult to sleep at night, so you’re excessively tired the next day. You don’t want to go to work—or do anything else—because you’re so tired. Because you aren’t as active, you lose self-esteem and start to withdraw even more from your social life.  A cycle like that doesn’t have to control your life, though.
Other common chronic back pain causes are :
Trauma or injury.
Poor posture.
Obesity – excess weight puts excess pressure and stress on the spine and can wear out faster or simply not work as well, perhaps leading to chronic pain.
Aging – various parts of the spinal anatomy and other joints can wear out over time (a process called degeneration, there’s no guarantee that an aging spine will be painful, though: it all depends on how the degeneration process affects it.
Nerve damage,an example, a spinal nerve root can be pinched by a herniated disc, causing pain. Even after treating the herniated disc, the pain may persist because of nerve damage. Nerves can be injured by arachnoid’s (inflammation of a tissue that protects the nerve roots),
Arthritis (again, the inflammation can compress the nerve), and
diabetes, cancer, lyme disease, an infection, and more. Nerves can have trouble relaying the appropriate message if they’ve been damaged.
SuJok acupuncture is a new stage in the development of Oriental medicine. Highly effective for treatment, easy and accessible to learn, simple to apply, Su Jok methods have attracted much attention to and interest in this system all the phases of world.  One of the important features of this system- That is, the fast-coming effect of the method. SuJok therapy extremely quickly arrests pain syndromes of various etiology. Moreover, there has been gathered a considerable bulk of observations that the SuJok method quickly copes with critical states – shocks, preinfarctions, preinsults. Under such extreme conditions, needling was not always used. It was enough to massage correspondence points for a victim to become conscious or to remove intolerable pain.  Since the Su Jok method has a fast effect, the rate of pain-killing was studied during the treatment session. Within different time periods since the beginning of the session, the patient assessed the percentage of decrease of his pain sensations as compared with the initial state which was accepted as 100%.  A fast and effective removal of the pain syndrome makes the treatment period shorter and the patients cure quicker.
The course of treatment is definitely uneventful. ONE MUST OPT for it, as there is no side effect at all and care & cure effect is on miniature form of hands.

CYST


CYST – A structure filled with liquid or semi-solid matter. Cysts can form anywhere in the body when a hollow structure is prevented from draining or a collection of fluid becomes surrounded by a wall of connective tissue. Examples are such as •Acne cyst Pseudo-cysts associated with cystic acne. Actually an inflammatory nodule with or without an associated epidermoid inclusion cyst.  •Arachnoid cyst (between the surface of the brain and the cranial base or on the arachnoid membrane).  •Baker’s cyst or popliteal cyst (behind the knee joint). •Breast cyst  •Chalazion cyst (eyelid)  •Dentigerous cyst (associated with the crowns of non-erupted teeth) •Dermoid cyst (ovaries, testes, many other locations from head to tailbone) •Epidermal cyst (found in the vessels attached to the testes) •Ganglion cyst (hand/ foot joints and tendons) •Glial cyst (in the brain) •Gartner’s duct cyst (vaginal or vulvar cyst of embryological origin) •Hydatid cyst(larval stage of Echinococcus granules (tapeworm) •Keratocyst (in the jaws, these can appear solitary or associated with the Gorlin-Goltz or Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome. The latest World Health Organization classification considers Keratocysts as tumors rather than cysts) •Liver cystic disease •Eyelid cyst  •Mucoid cyst (ganglion cysts of the digits) •Nabothian cyst (cervix) •Ovarian cyst (ovaries, functional and pathological) •Paratubal cyst (fallopian tube)  •Peritoneal cyst (lining of the abdominal cavity) •Pilar cyst – Cyst of the scalp. •Pilonidal cyst (skin infection near tailbone) •Renal cyst (kidneys) •Poly-cystic ovary syndrome •Pineal gland cyst  •Radicular cyst (associated with the roots of non-vital teeth, also known as Peri apical cyst) •Testicular cyst •Sebaceous cyst (sac below skin) •Tarlov cyst (spine)  •Vocal fold cyst  and parasitic cysts (formed when parasites such as amoebae and tapeworms infest certain organs). Cysts are mostly benign but may cause concern if they are seen or felt for example skin or breast cysts and may cause symptoms if they become infected or large enough to cause pressure on or obstruction or displacement of adjacent body parts.
CYSTITIS – Inflammation of the bladder. Cystitis can be due for example to infection from bacteria that ascend the urethra (the canal from the outside) to the bladder. Cystitis may be acute or chronic and is a very common problem for women, whose shorter urethra which drains urine from the bladder makes them more liable than men to infections and other inflammations of the bladder and urethra.
Symptoms
include a frequent need to urinate, often accompanied by a burning sensation. As cystitis progresses, blood may be observed in the urine and the patient may suffer cramps after urination. In young children, attempts to avoid the pain of cystitis can be a cause for daytime wetting (enuresis). Treatment includes avoiding irritants, such as perfumed soaps, near the urethral opening; increased fluid intake; and antibiotics. Untreated cystitis can lead to scarring and the formation of stones when urine is retained for long periods of time to avoid painful urination. Acute cystitis causes frequent, urgent and painful passing of urine. There is an urgent desire to empty the bladder, but when one has get to the toilet, then you can only dribble out a spoonful and it hurts. Within short span of time, again the urge strikes again. Sometimes there is a constant urge to urinate even when you can not pass a drop. With severe acute cystitis there is a also often pain behind the pubic bones, chills and fever, a burning or scalding feeling when the urine wets the genitals and sometimes blood in the urine, which may smell unusual and be cloudy.
In chronic cystitis there is more likely to be recurrent or ongoing lower abdominal pain as well as frequency and urgency. Fever, burning and bloodstained urine are less common. The symptoms of cystitis are very distressing particularly if the attacks are recurrent or the condition chronic. Apart from the need to stay close to a toilet.  Frequent attacks can disrupt the self life, which may further lead to isolation, anxiety and depression.
Causes – Most acute cystitis is due to bacterial infection. A multitude of bacteria can cause inflammation if they get into the urethra and bladder.  Infection, allergy, immune disorders, some drugs, small bladder stones or any condition that prevents complete emptying of the bladder may lead to chronic cystitis is pressure on the urethra from an enlarged prostate gland. One type of chronic cystitis is called interstitial cystitis, in which the deeper layers of the bladder lining remain inflamed causing symptoms after the infection or other possible causes have been eliminated.
In most cases the diagnosis of acute cystitis should be confirmed by pathological examination of the urine to identify any bacteria and to check their antibiotic sensitivity.
If you have chronic or recurrent bladder symptoms it is very important to have urine tests and a thorough urinary tract examination so that the cause can be found and treated. Recurrent cystitis can be a symptom of more serious conditions. Tests usually include urography, contrast x-rays of the kidneys and bladder and perhaps cystoscopy internal examination of the bladder via a viewing instrument and biopsy of the bladder lining.  If you get frequently symptoms of cystitis after sex, in that even one may need to see a specialist in urology. It may be that you have a chronic infection of the glands near the urethral outlet or some other bladder or urethral condition that can be corrected. However the bladder symptoms after sex are not always due to infection.
SEX AND CYSTITIS; some women are more prone than others to develop urinary symptoms associated with sex. Sometimes problems only occur when sexual intercourse is frequent over a short time(for example honeymoon cystitis). In women the urethra and bladder base are very close to the front wall of the vagina, where they are liable to injury from friction during intercourse-especially if the vulva and vagina are not sufficiently lubricated by sexual arousal before penetration.  Frictional injury alone is enough to cause inflammation of the urethra. Some germs probably always get into the urethra and bladder during sex but normal defences usually overcome them. However, if the tissues are also injured their defences will be down and infection is more likely to take hold.
Women who develop bladder and urethral symptoms almost every time they have intercourse come to fear sex. The fear cuts down their sexual arousal so that they are less well lubricated and more likely to suffer mechanical injury-the beginning of a vicious circle of sex and bladder problems. This can play a havoc with a relationship.
SuJok Acupuncture  not only is effective as a primary modality, it also can play a vital role as an adjunctive therapy due to how effective the meridian system is as a means of proper diagnosis. Because the meridians influence every cell in the body and pass through every organ and organ system, acupuncture provides health practitioners with an accurate and noninvasive means of determining health deficiencies, as well as a method of reestablishing balance. It  provides maximum benefits without the dangerous side effects associated with many of the approaches of conventional medicine. While acupuncture represents a legacy of concepts that predate Western civilization, as a contemporary health care system it also represents a synthesis of continuously evolving scientific and technological developments which provides us with new tools to meet current clinical challenges.
An important aspect of SuJok therapy is that it allows to take into account an individual characteristics of the patient manifested in his/her own energy constitution. This brings about an effective action on the very origin of disease. Besides, there are practically no contraindications for utilization of SuJok therapy. One must opt for the SUJOK acupuncture to have optimal effectiveness.  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.

MORNING SICKNESS


MORNING SICKNESS
Morning sickness is marked by a group of symptoms including nausea, vomiting, dizziness, anorexia within the first trimester of gestation. It is a commonly seen disorder appearing in early stage of pregnancy. Sever condition may emaciate the pregnant woman very quickly and trigger off other diseases.  The factors are due mostly to deficiency of stomach qi, upward flux of the fetal qi invading the stomach, and pervasive flow of stomach qi.
Pathogenesis : It is caused by constant deficiency of the stomach qi, cessation of menstruation after pregnancy and hyper-function of the Pancreas Meridian which further affect the Yangming(stomach and large intestine) Meridian, leading to pervasive flowing of the feeble stomach qi together with the qi in the Chong Meridian, hence nausea and vomiting. In some cases, when the blood flows to nurture the fetus there results in insufficient liver blood and hyperactivity of liver yang accompanied by weakened spleen and stomach, leading to nausea and vomiting.
Differentiation :
Deficiency in the spleen and stomach ; Main manifestations: Nausea and vomiting of liquid or undigested food immediately after meals, fullness and distending feeling in the chest, lassitude and sleepiness, pale tongue with white coating, slippery and weak pulse during the first trimester of pregnancy.
Analysis :  Blood centred in the lower abdomen after pregnancy, the qi of the Chong (pancreas) Meridian gushes upward and the stomach qi is unable to descend due to the weakened spleen and stomach. The stomach qi does not go downward, instead, upward with the qi of the Chong Meridian, causing nausea, anorexia and vomiting right after intake of food. Weakened spleen and stomach leads to the insufficiency of yang qi in the middle jiao, manifested by fullness and distension in the epigastrium, lassitude and sleepiness, and vomiting of liquid. Pale tongue with white coating and weak slippery pulse are signs of deficiency in the spleen and stomach after pregnancy. Acupuncture with the even moment is applied to build up the spleen, harmonize the stomach and quell the pervasive flowing of qi so as to check vomiting.
Disharmony between the liver and stomach ; Main manifestations: Vomiting of bitter or sour liquid, epigastric fullness and hypochondriac pain, frequent belching and sighing, mental depression, dizziness and eye distension, yellowish tongue coating and string taut slippery pulse in the early stage of gestation.
Analysis : The stagnated liver qi travels adversely along the Liver Meridian via the stomach to diaphragm, hypochondria and chest, which causes nausea, vomiting, epigastric fullness, distending pain in the chest and hypochondrium, frequent belching and mental depression. Dizziness and eye distension are consequence of the upward  influx of the liver qi. the liver and gallbladder are interiorly exteriorly related. When there is internal liver heat fire of the gallbladder discharges, resulting in vomiting of bitter or sour liquid. Yellowish coating and string taut slippery pulse are signs of disharmony between the liver and stomach.
