DIZZINESS


DIZZINESS
 A sensation of light-headedness and unsteadiness, is often caused by a decrease in blood supply to the brain, while vertigo is caused by disturbances in the inner ear and the balance centers of the brain. It is necessary to understand the specific symptoms a patient is experiencing in order to make the correct approach;
Common causes of dizziness –
Low blood pressure – Dizziness, light headedness, and the feeling of passing out is a common complaints who have low blood pressure. When the blood pressure is too low, not enough oxygen-rich blood is being delivered to the brain, and its function can be affected.
•sweating,
•nausea and vomiting,
•shortness of breath, and
•chest pain. 
 •anemia (decreased red blood cell count)
•bleeding
•dehydration (loss of water in the body) often occurs with infections that cause vomiting and diarrhea.
Most attacks of dizziness are brief and harmless and are caused by a momentary reduction of the blood supply to the brian,such as may occur when getting up suddenly after sitting or lying down. However, dizziness may be a symptom of ear or brain disorders, cardiovascular disease, anaemia or Hypo or Hyper – glycemic or it may be a side effect of certain drugs – especially those used to treat high blood pressure.
•endocrine disease.
•addison’s disease: it occurs when the adrenal glands do not produce enough cortisol to meet the needs of the body, it’s a naturally occurring steroid produced by the body and is part of the stress response (fight or flight). If cortisol levels are low, a patient may experience weakness, fatigue, dizziness, light-headedness, low blood sugar, and low blood pressure.
Vertigo – Vertigo is often described as feeling dizzy, or a sensation of spinning. The patient may specifically mention that the room seems to be spinning around them. Sometimes the complaint is loss of balance or loss of equilibrium. This often occurs because of irritation in the inner ear (the part of the ear that involves balance, not hearing).
 The inner ear has two parts that help the body determine its position in space relative to gravity; 1) the semicircular canals and, 2) the vestibule.
 There are three semicircular canals that are aligned at right angles to each other. These canals are filled with fluid and are lined with a nerve-filled, crystal-encrusted membrane that transmits information to the cerebellum (the part of the brain that controls balance and coordination). The cerebellum collects information from visual stimuli and the nerve endings in muscles associated with proprioception (the perception of movement), to assist the brain in assessing where the body is in relationship to gravity and its surroundings.
Normally, when the head moves, fluid in the semicircular canals shift, and that information is relayed to the brain. When the head stops moving, the fluid stops as well, and that information is relayed to the brain.
In some cases there may be a short delay in the transmission of this information to the brain. For example, when a person rides on go-round or spins quickly around in circles, the fluid in the canals develop momentum and even though the body stops spinning, the fluid in the semicircular canals may continue to move. This causes vertigo, or a sensation of spinning, and may cause the person to fall or stumble. It also may be associated with vomiting.
•Acoustic neuroma: This is a benign tumor of the ear that can present with vertigo.
•Vertigo is the sensation of spinning and may present without warning and be associated with nausea and vomiting. Patients with inner ear problems may be unable to move without generating symptoms.
The mild case can be relieved by closing one’s eyes, while the serious case has an illusion of bodily movement with rotatory sensation like sitting in a sailing boat or moving car, and even accompanied by nausea, vomiting and sweating.
Pathogenesis ;
Hyperactivity of the liver ;
The liver is analogize as wind and wood, characterized by movement and ascending. Over contemplation, anxiety, depression or anger can damage the liver yin, resulting in hyperactivity of liver yang. Dizziness occurs in case the liver yang moves as the wind and ascends to attack the brain. Or the kidney water, generally in deficiency, fails to nourish the liver. Dizziness occurs in case the liver is lack of nourishment, which leads to hyperactivity of liver yang. In both situations there is deficiency in the lower but excess in the upper part of the body.
Main manifestations : Dizziness aggravated by anger, irritability, flushed face, red eyes, tinnitus, bitter taste in the mouth, dream-disturbed sleep, red tongue proper with yellow coating, string taut, rapid pulse.
Analysis : Anger damages the liver yin causing hyperactivity of the liver yang which transforms into fire. When the fire flares up, flushed face, red eyes and irritability appear. The spirit stored in the liver is upset by disorders of the liver, then dream disturbed sleep occurs. The red tongue proper with yellow coating, bitter taste in the mouth, string-taut, rapid pulse are the signs of yin deficiency resulting in fire hyperactivity.
Deficiency of blood ;
the heart and spleen are damaged by overwork and over contemplation in case of a weak constitution after a disease. The damaged spleen fails to produce qi and blood, leading to deficiency. In case the brain in poorly nourished by blood, dizziness occurs.
Main manifestations : dizziness accompanied by pallor and lustreless complexion, weakness, palpitation, insomnia, pale lips and nails, lassitude, pale tongue proper, thready and weak pulse. Dizziness occurs mostly after a serious disease or loss of blood and is aggravated by overwork. Loss of consciousness happens in sever cases.
Analysis : Dizziness is inevitable because deficiency of qi and blood fails to nourish the brain. The heart dominates the blood and is manifested in the complexion. The spleen dominates the transportation and transformation to manufacturer qi and blood. If the heart and spleen are injured, the blood will be insufficient, thereby the complexion is lustreless and the lips and the nails are pale. Deficiency of blood leads to palpitation and insomnia. Deficiency of qi gives rise to weakness, lassitude, anorexia and is aggravated by overwork. Pale tongue and thready, weak pulse are the signs of deficiency of blood.
Interior retention of phlegm dampness ;
In a person with generally abundant phlegm dampness, irregular food intake and overwork damage the stomach and the spleen, impairing their function in transportation and transformation and leading to production of dampness and phlegm. Then the stagnant phlegm and qi may impede the ascending clear yang and the descending of the turbid yin, and thus dizziness occurs.
Main manifestations : Dizziness with a heavy feeling of the head and suffocating sensation in the chest, nausea, profuse, sputum, anorexia, somnolence, white, sticky tongue coating, soft, rolling pulse.
Analysis : Dizziness with a heavy feeling of the head is the sign of the pure yang disturbed by phlegm dampness. Suffocating sensation in the chest and nausea are caused by qi obstructed in the middle jiao. anorexia and somnolence are due to the spleen yang deficiency. White sticky tongue coating soft and soiling pulse are the signs of phlegm dampness.
SuJok therapy stands as a highly efficient method of non medicamentous treatment of dizziness patients. The SuJok therapy approach has the capacity to remedy health disorders at a variety of levels, including emotional, mental, at the somatic (intersystemic) level, the afflicted system and cellular levels. SuJok therapy will emerge useful both as a tactical therapeutic modality in order to relieve an exacerbated condition, and as a strategic treatment aimed at dealing with first-order factors of the dizziness pathogenesis.
SuJok therapy has proved to be in tune with the therapeutic methods advised by the International Su Jok acupuncture by the points corresponding to the ear, and also by Six ki energy therapy.

Stroke – Wind


STROKE – WIND
STROKE – wind, considered to be an emergency may be manifested by falling down in a fit with loss of consciousness or hemiplegia, with the symptoms such as slurred speech, deviated mouth. It can be categorized by abrupt onset with pathological changes varying quickly like the wind, from which the term ‘wind stroke’ comes. The Wind energy itself is not a painful symptoms as pain is result of the contraction. When wind is mild, predictable, it belongs to Yin, can be considered Yin Wind Stroke.  But, when wind is strong, unpredictable, short in duration like a typhoon or tornado, it belongs to Yang, accordingly can be differentiated.
Pathogenesis;
Stroke – wind, often occurs in the aged who are in poor health, with deficiency of vital energy and blood, or deficiency in the lower part of the body and excess in the upper part. It may be caused by deficiency of the kidney due to sexual indulgence or by irregular food intake, which impedes the transportation and transformation function of the spleen, leading to production of phlegm from accumulated dampness and transformation into heat. It may impedes imbalance of Yin and Yang. Other causative factors are exasperation, agitation, alcohol indulgence or overeating, over strain and stress or invasion of exogenous pathogenic wind, all leading to upsurge of Yang liver and heart fire which makes vital energy and blood go upward together with turbid phlegm, disturbing the mind and resulting in this disease. In mild cases there are only symptoms showing dysfunction of the meridians and collateral’s, while in severe cases both dysfunction of organs and meridians are manifested.
Tense syndrome results from disturbance of the mind by the phlegm heat or collection of excessive fire in the heart and liver while flaccid deficiency syndrome results from deficiency of the vital energy or collapse of the kidney yang. In untreated or improperly treated cases, the tense syndrome tends to become flaccid and the prognosis is often poor.
Differentiation;
Tense syndrome –  Main manifestations: falling down in a fit with loss of consciousness, tightly closed hands and clenched jaws, flushed face, coarse breathing, rattling in the throat, retention of urine, constipation, red tongue with thick yellow or dark grey coating, string-taut, rolling and forceful pulse.
Wind stirred up by upsurge of liver yang sends vital energy and blood upwards, which together with the accumulated phlegm fire disturb the mind, leading to sudden loss of consciousness with tightly closed hands and clenched jaws, flushed face, coarse breathing, retention of urine and constipation. Excessive wind phlegm brings about rattling in the throat, red tongue with thick yellow coating or dark grey coating, string-taut, rolling and forceful pulse are the signs of wind combined with phlegm fire.
Flaccid syndrome – Main manifestations: falling down in a fit and sudden loss of consciousness with mouth agape and eyes closed, snoring but feeble breathing, flaccid paralysis of limbs, incontinence of urine, flaccid tongue, thready, weak pulse and in severe cases cold limbs or flushing of face as rouged, fading or big floating pulse.
Severe weakness of primary vital energy,separation of yin and yang and exhaustion of energy indicates mouth agape, eyes closed, snoring but feeble breathing, flaccid paralysis, and incontinence of urine. flaccid tongue and thready weak pulse suggest the deficiency of blood and prostration of the kidney yang. If complicated with cold limbs, flushed face, fading or big floating pulse, it is a critical case, indicating exhaustion of yin in the lower portion of the body and upward going of the isolated yang.
There are two categories. One is that only the meridians and collateral’s are attacked without the organs being involved. The other is that after wind stroke the functions of the affected organs have been restored, yet there exists stagnation of vital energy and blood in the meridians.
Main manifestations: Hemiplegia, numbness of the limbs, deviated mouth, slurring of speech, accompanied by headache, dizziness, vertigo, twitching of muscles, red eyes and flushed face, thirst, dryness of the throat, irritability, string taut and rolling pulse.
Analysis: wind phlegm enters the meridians due to imbalance of yin and yang, causing retarded circulation of vital energy and blood. Hence appears hemiplegia, numbness of the limbs, deviated mouth and slurring of speech. It complicated with upsurging of liver yang and upward disturbance of wind yang, the symptoms are headache, dizziness, vertigo and twitching of muscles. If there is excessive fire in the heart and liver, there may be red eyes and flushed face, thirst, dryness of the throat and irritability. Stagnation of wind phlegm leads to a string taut and rolling pulse.
SuJok acupuncture methods, from the simplest to complex ones, are self-sufficient for coping with pain and obtaining a stable remission of even Neuro problems.  The SuJok method is a natural way of treatment, and the process of normalisation of the patient’s state. An important aspect of SuJok therapy is that it allows to take into account an individual characteristics of the patient manifested in 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.
If taken treatment in initial stages, one may get positive effective results. Positive aspect of this therapy is that overall control of any disease is only through the hands and sole.

Bell’s palsy


Bell’s palsy

Bell’s Palsy is a disease that paralyses one side of the face. A person who has Bell’s palsy cannot wrinkle the forehead or close the eye on the affected half of the face. The mouth sags on one side. With effort, the victim can move the facial muscles on the healthy side. But the face is distorted because the muscles on the other side cannot be moved. The symptoms of Bell’s palsy appear suddenly in most cases. The victim may feel some pain for one or two days before they occur. But the paralysis itself is painless. Most victims lose the sense of taste on one side of the tongue. The eye on the paralysed side becomes dry. Sounds may seem extremely loud at times. Bell’s palsy is caused by a sudden swelling of the main motor nerve on one side of the face. A bony canal surrounds this nerve. The swollen nerve presses against the canal, causing the nerve to function improperly. The swelling of the nerve may be caused by a virus, possibly a herpes virus <a group of viruses that cause a wide variety of diseases. Genital herpes, a widespread sexually transmitted disease, is caused by a herpesvirus. Herpesviruses also cause such conditions as chickenpox, cold sores, glandular fever, and shingles. Herpesviruses may be present in the body without producing signs of illness. People infected with certain herpesviruses may experience symptoms that go away, then reappear months or years later. The viruses are spread through direct physical contact with an infected person. Acupuncture ONNURI 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. Acupuncture has been shown to promote health and improve the bodys 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 Bell’s Palsy. Besides, treatment concept is only on the hands. High effect can be observed on pricking 1mm small micro tiny needles on hand to adjust the energy system of body or with small magnets similar to pulse size to put on fingers only. The course of treatment is defenietly uneventful. If you beleive in there is energy be it environmental, spiritual or in any other form, one must opt for ACUPUNCTURE, particularly Acupuncture SuJok, Onnuri, Triorigin, SixKi Thereapy or Eight Origin concept’s of energy.

CEREBRAL PALSY


CEREBRAL PALSY
 Cerebral palsy is a general term for variety of non progressive movement disorders caused by damage to the brain.  The damage occurs before or during birth or in the first few years of life.  The brain damage may cause severe crippling or total paralysis, or the symptoms may be so mild that they hardly interfere with the normal activities.  Cerebral palsy involves lack of muscle control.  AND effects of the disorder include a clumsy walk, lack of balance, shaking, jerky movements, unclear speech etc.  In some cases, brain damage also cause mental retardation, learning disability, seizures and problems in sight and hearing.
 Causes : In most cases, the causes of faulty growth of the brain that result in cerebral palsy cannot be determined.  In some cases, however, brain damage may result from illness in the mother during pregnancy.  Or  faulty growth of child’s brain may occur if the mother is severely malnourished during pregnancy. Brain damage can also occur during the birth process, especially in premature births.  In babies born after a normal term of pregnancy, brain damage may occur if there is a significant period of hypoxia (lack of oxygen), causing brain cells to die.  BUT, after birth, it may develop if disease or injury damages the brain or severe jaundice.  During the first year of life, infections and accidental head injuries are the most frequent causes of the condition or inflammation of the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord or encephalitis-inflammation of the brain.
 Types : Cerebral palsy could be of ataxic, athetoid, hypo-tonic and spastic.  In ataxic form, the victim’s voluntary movements are jerky, and a loss of balance is suffered.  In athetoid type muscles move continually.  These movements prevent or interfere greatly with voluntary actions.  A person with hypo-tonic cerebral palsy appears limp.  The person can move little or not at all because the muscles cannot contract.  In Spastic cerebral palsy victims have stiff muscles and cannot move some body parts  and have more than one muscle disorder. Some may lose the ability to walk if they gain too much weight.  Treatment of cerebral palsy is aimed at preventing the disabilities from worsening and helping the child use his or her abilities to the best advantage.  Each type of cerebral palsy requires different therapy.  Each patient needs individual care. 
 Prevention of brain damage before, during, and soon after birth is most important way of curing cerebral palsy.
 BUT, with energy concept of ACUPUNCTURE SUJOK, energy can move and reach up-to any extent. Though, 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 affected persons live. 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 CEREBRAL PALSY.
 Treatment through ACUPUNCTURE SUJOK(COLOR), is one such treatment, which is effective at all the levels. High effect ; when applied properly, an evident effect is often felt.  The course of treatment is defenietly uneventful. One MUST OPT simultaneously for speedy recovery of cerebral palsy. Though, no medicine is ever recommended, hence no side effects. If applied properly, affected person can overcome the problem.
