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.

Breast Cancer


Causes and prevention in breast cancer, one has to change the life style or merge in daily life:
• Consuming healthy food with plenty of fruits, vegetables and whole grains with other high fiber foods helps strengthening immunity, reducing chances.
• Exercise regularly.
• 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. 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.
One may visit personally to the center to get the absolutely free treatment till end of this month.

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.

BREAST CANCER


BREAST CANCER
• In its early stages, usually it does not have any symptoms.  The diagnosis of breast cancer has a profound emotional impact because of fears and it affects a part of the body intimately linked with a woman’s self image and sexuality. As a tumor develops with the following signs :
• A thickening or lump in the breast or armpit usually observed after the menstrual cycle; often the first apparent symptom of breast cancer, breast lumps are painless, although some may cause a prickly sensation. Lumps are usually visible on a mammogram long before they can be seen or felt.
• Swelling in the armpit.
• Although lumps are usually painless, pain or tenderness in the breast can be a sign of breast cancer.
• A noticeable flattening or indentation on the breast, which may indicate a tumor that cannot be seen or felt.
• Any change in the size, shape, contour, texture, or temperature of the breast, like dimple in the skin, a reddish, pitted surface like the skin of an orange could be a sign of breast cancer.
• A change in the nipple, such as an indrawn or dimpled look, itching or burning sensation, or ulceration; scaling of the nipple is symptomatic of Paget’s disease, a localized cancer.
• Unusual discharge from the nipple that may be clear, bloody, or another color. It’s usually caused by benign conditions but could be due to cancer in some cases.
• Change in the color or peel of the skin around the nipple.
• A marble-like area under the skin.
• Dilated veins.
• Hardness of the breast.
• An area that is distinctly different from any other area on either breast. One or both breasts develop an abnormal lump or persistent pain, or look or feel abnormal. The cause often is something other than cancer but should be identified.
• There may be swollen lymph glands in the armpits. Any such swelling could be associated with cancer.
It begins with the formation of a tumor. If the tumor is malignant, it has the potential to grow and spread or metastasize to different parts of the body through the blood stream or the lymphatic system.  Almost all breast cancers begin in the glandular structures in the breast that, during lactation, produce milk. These mammary glands are under the control of reproductive hormones that stimulate the monthly cycle of gland expansion and shrinkage, which is a feature of the regular menstrual cycle. Many of the factors associated with the development of breast cancer appear to have their effect through interaction with the hormonal stimulation of these glands. It can be ‘invasive’ (spreading) or ‘noninvasive’ (do not spread and is confined to the original site). There are different kinds of breast cancer;
 Ductal carcinoma in situ(DCIS),  Lobular carcinoma in situ(LCIS),  Invasive(infiltrating)ductal carcinoma(IDC): This kind of cancer begins in the milk passage, breaks through the wall of the passage and spreads in the breast tissue. Later the cancer cells spreads to different parts of the body. Invasive (infiltrating) lobular carcinoma (ILC): This condition begins in the milk lobules and spreads to different parts of the body.
 Inflammatory breast cancer(IBC): This is a rare invasive condition where a tumor or lump is not seen,instead the skin of the breast looks red and warm to feel. The skin is thick with pitted appearance and looks like an orange peel. The breast becomes larger, firmer, tender and itchy.
 Diagnosis is based on detection and screening. It can be done through self-examination of the breast frequently and finding out for the presence of lumps, pain in the breast, thickness, changes during menstruation. Getting checked with a physician is necessary if anything unusual is observed. Self-examination helps in early diagnosis of the disease.
 But if one has already have the Chemotherapy, it may develop some side effects which causes nausea, vomiting, infertility problems and early menopause by destroying the eggs in the ovaries.
 Hormonal therapy causes vaginal dryness and hot flashes after menopause. Hormonal therapy: Those who have undergone menopause and taken hormone therapy for more than 4 years with estrogen and progesterone have high chances.
Herceptin can cause heart problems by weakening the heart muscles.
Side-effects of radiation therapy include swelling in the breast, reddening and blistering of the skin and fatigue.
One should avoid long-term hormone intake after menopause.  Breast-feeding will lower the risk.  Conceiving before 30 years of age.  Loosing extra kilos, as extra fat increases estrogen production.  Consuming healthy food with plenty of fruits, vegetables and whole grains.  Exercising regularly.  Decrease alcohol consumption.
The chances are high as the age increases or if anybody in the family has suffered from breast cancer indicating genes are responsible. If one has breast cancer in one of the breast, there is a likelihood of getting affected to the other breast too. 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.
Having higher estrogen levels increases the risk.
More fat in the body and consuming alcohol increases estrogen levels especially after menopause leading to an increased risk. It has been suggested that a diet  high in fat and or sugar may be causative and that high fibre intake may be protective, but these theories have not been proven.
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.
Not breast-feeding: Women who never breast-feed their children are at high risk.
The risk for breast cancer is also significantly decreased among women undergoing surgical removal of the ovaries, particularly if the surgery is performed before age thirty-five,as removes the major source of reproductive hormones and therefore results in less stimulation of the glands in the breast.
Conversely, the greater number of years a woman has regular menstrual cycles, the higher the risk of breast cancer. There is also a modest increase in risk associated with postmenopausal estrogen replacement therapy (especially when used more than 15 years), and with exposure to the synthetic estrogen diethylstilbestrol during pregnancy. Studies have found a significant correlation between breast cancer and levels of hormones—estradiol, estrone, estrone sulfate, prolactin, and dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate. A drug used to treat breast cancer, tamoxifen, blocks estrogen receptors.
Taken together, a significant body of research shows that reproductive hormones—produced internally and taken as medicines—are major determinants of breast cancer risk. Other factors—including genetic predisposition, environmental exposure, and lifestyle choices—may increase cancer risk via hormone regulation. 
The  energy concept of SuJok ACUPUNCTURE ; any cancerous cell means more strong the Hotness vital energy in the coldness area, because it is spreading. And BREAST it self is connected with oestrogen level.  Acupuncture, itself is a powerful medicine, which aids in strengthening the immune system and serves to prevent the diseases, control pain and increase both the ability to function and the quality of lives.  It has been shown to promote the health and improve body’s immune function. It has also helped many people who were not successfully treated through conventional western medicine.  Several conditions can be dramatically improved or remedied in full including breast cancer.
SuJok is a component of Onnuri medicine, and involves inserting of very thin, fine, metal needles into the specific ‘correspondence points’ located on the miniature form of hands or foot, along the meridians pathways along which Qi travels,connecting the surface of the body energetically with the internal organs.

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.

BREAST ABSCESS


BREAST ABSCESS
Breast abscess is an acute inflammation and infection with a collection of pus within the breast tissue, acute purulent disorder of the breast mostly found in lactation period after delivery. It is rare in the duration of pregnancy. People commonly affected by breast abscess – women in the child bearing age group who have recently given birth. Normally, it is caused by retention of milk in the breast due to mental depression affecting the vital energy of the liver or due to overtaking of fatty food that brings about stagnation of heat in the stomach meridian or due to obstruction of the milk duct after invasion of exogenous toxic fire into the breast through the rupture of the nipple.
Breast abscess main manifestations include redness, heat, inflammation, swelling, hardness, tenderness and pain in infected part. Also, enlargement of lymph glands in the armpit and sharp pain when the infant sucks. If left untreated, the skin darkens and the abscess eventually bursts. The person may be feverish and feel unwell, mostly occurring after the delivery. At the early stages when the abscess has not yet been formed, there is a lump in the breast accompanied by swelling, distention, pain, difficult lactation, chills, fever headache, nausea and dire thirst. Growing of the lump with local bright redness and intermittent throbbing pain indicates suppuration. If the infection is very severe, breast-feeding may have to be abandoned.
An abscess a pus-filled hollow space that can appear on the skin or inside the body. Most abscesses form just under the skin and are the result of a bacterial infection. The infection causes the immune system to activate white blood cells and chemicals to fight the bacteria. Breast abscesses can affect women between the age of 18 and 50, but they are very uncommon in women who are not producing milk. When breastfeeding, the nipples sometimes become cracked, which allows bacteria to enter, and may cause an infection. A breast infection can lead to the development of an abscess.
During breastfeeding, the suckling from the baby may cause the nipples to become tender and raw (this is called abrasion). It is normal for the breasts to feel tender during breastfeeding, but to consult if having heat or pain in either breast.
The first stage in the development of an abscess is inflammation of the breast tissue. This is called mastitis, and has the following symptoms: painful localised swelling of the affected breast, localised redness, tenderness, and the breast feels very hot. Another sign of infection is flu-like symptoms, including aches and pains, headache and a raised temperature. The infection occurs in the parenchymal (fatty) tissue of the breast, causing swelling just outside the milk ducts. This swelling presses on the milk ducts, and the result is pain and swelling of the infected breast. One may notice the additional symptoms : tender or enlarged lymph nodes in the armpit on the affected side, enlargement of the affected breast, discharge from the nipple, which may be green or pus-like, breast lump, and itching. If one can, try to continue breastfeeding. Draining the infected milk can reduce the chance of an abscess forming, and it will not harm the baby. The germs in the milk will be killed off once they reach the baby’s stomach. If an abscess has already formed, it is advisable to stop breastfeeding.
The cause of a breast abscess could be because of bacterial infection; usually a taphylococcus or streptococcus is the causal organism. The organisms enter through cracks in the nipple, particularly at the beginning of breast-feeding before the skin has ‘toughened up’. Preventative measures – try to avoid cracking of the nipples include careful cleansing, use of some paste, and not allowing the baby to suck for too long, or to ‘comfort suck’, especially during the early days of breast-feeding.
Analysis: When breastfeeding, the skin of the nipples can become grazed or cracked. This is usually a result of the baby’s gums pinching the nipple. Sometimes it happens because the nipple hasn’t been far enough into the baby’s mouth, and has rubbed against the roof of the baby’s mouth. Many sore nipples are caused by the baby not being properly positioned or latched on. Breast infections are caused by a common bacteria found on normal skin called Staphylococcus aureus. The bacteria usually get into the breast through cracks or abrasions in the nipple, and the resulting infection causes inflammation of the breast (mastitis). Although mastitis is most commonly caused by breastfeeding, it is also linked to other factors. These include diabetes, nipple piercings, lumpectomies or breast irradiation, the use of corticosteroids, having silicone breast implants, and being a heavy smoker. As the body’s immune system tries to fight off the breast infection, some of the tissue in the local area dies. This is called necrosis. A collection of pus forms, which is surrounded by hardened and inflamed tissue. This is a breast abscess.
Since the stagnated liver vital qi and obstructed lactation lead to production of heat, there occurs redness, swelling and pain of the breast with difficult lactation. the confrontation between the exogenous pathogenic factors and the body resistance causes chills, fever and headache. The pathogenic heat in the stomach disturbs the descending of the stomach vital energy, manifested by nausea and dire thirst. Unrelieved stagnation of milk may produce heat. Extreme heat causes putrid muscle, and pus follows. So there is growing of the lump in the breast with bright redness, burning and intermittent throbbing pain. The reducing method is applied to regulate the vital energy of the Liver and Stomach meridians, remove stagnation and disperse heat. The nipple is on the Liver meridian, and the breast is located in the area where the Stomach meridian is distributed. The breast abscess is caused by pathogenic heat in the stomach and the stagnation of liver vital energy. One has to remove the stomach fire in order to eliminate the accumulation of pathogenic factors to regulate the activity of vital energy and remove obstruction of lactation.
Prevention: If having breast infection, the best way to prevent an abscess forming is to continue to breastfeed. This helps to get rid of the infected milk, and will not harm the baby. Bacteria in the infected breast milk are killed in baby’s stomach. If breastfeeding is too painful, better not to continue. To help the milk flow better, try placing a warm, wet washcloth over the affected breast for about 15 minutes before breastfeeding. Massaging the affected breast may also increase milk flow.
Acupuncture SUJOK, 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. It has been shown to promote the health and improve the body’s immune function. It has also helped many people who were not successfully treated through conventional western medicine. Several conditions can be dramatically improved or remedied in full including Breast abscess, or any gynaecological and obstetric disorders, as well as during normal childbirth. Su Jok acupuncture is a new stage in the development of Oriental medicine. Highly effective for treatment, easy and accessible to learn, simple to apply. One of the important features of this system, 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 effect, the rate of pain-killing was studied during the treatment session. A fast and effective removal of the pain syndrome makes the treatment period shorter and the patients cure quicker.
The beauty of acupuncture SUJOK is that each treatment is catered to the needs of an individual patient. Its energy concept of treatment is only on the miniature form of hands or feets chosen for overall well being with the objective of increasing circulation of the blood and vital energy.
