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.

Blisters


BLISTERS

A collection of fluid under the surface layers of the skin, skin itching, breaking out, covered in a rash, or to strange spots?

Blisters can cause by injury to the skin or by skin inflammation, changes in texture or color, and spots may be the result of infection, a chronic skin condition, or contact with an allergen or irritant, due to infection, burns, sunburns and other skin disorders. Blisters caused by skin or internal infections usually have specific diagnostic features, such as those of chickenpox, herpes simplex and shingles. Small blood vessels in the base of a blister may rupture, making the blister fluid bloodstained (blood blister). In general, blisters should not be pricked because of the risk of introducing infection to underlying tissues. If blisters are large, troublesome, multiple, or appear without explanation, consult to the doctor.

Cold Sores (Fever Blisters) small, painful, fluid-filled blisters on the mouth or nose, cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus. Lasting about seven to 10 days, cold sores are contagious until completely crusted over. Triggers can include fever, too much sun, stress, or menstruation. One should consult if sores contain pus, you have a fever greater than 100.5°, or if your eyes become irritated.

Rash from poisonous plants – Contact with sap from poison ivy, oak, and sumac causes a rash in most people. It begins with redness and swelling at the contact site, then becomes intensely itchy. Blistering appears within hours or a few days. The typical rash is arranged as a red line on an exposed area, caused by the plant dragging across the skin.

SuJok therapy stands as a highly efficient method of non medicamentous treatment for such patients. The Su Jok therapy approach has the capacity to remedy health disorders at a variety of levels, including blisters or skin related problems. It has proved to be in tune with the therapeutic methods advised by the International SuJok acupuncture by the points corresponding to the lungs , and also by the concept Eight Ki points. SuJok acupuncture methods, from the simplest to complex ones, are self-sufficient for coping with pain, allergy and obtaining a stable remission. 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.

One should opt to get rid of these related problems. Undoubtedly, one may get positive results in blisters, rashes, through the energy concept of acupuncture ‘SuJok’.

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.

ABDOMINAL PAIN


ABDOMINAL PAIN
The upper part of the abdomen contains all the important organs of digestion and excretion-the stomach, intestines, liver and gall bladder, pancreas, kidneys and ureters – as well as the spleen and the adrenal glands.  The lower abdomen – pelvis contains the internal organs of reproduction – the ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus in women and the seminal vesicles and prostate in men and the bladder.
Abdominal pain may result from disorders in any of these organs or the lymph glands that drain them, in the tissues that surround them, or in tissues of the abdominal wall.  Much less commonly, pain may be referred to the abdomen from other parts of the body, such as the chest organs or the spinal cord.
CAUSES :  Disorders of the stomach and intestines are among the causes of abdominal pain. They include, PEPTIC ULCER DISEASE, GASTROINTERITIS, APPENDICITIS, COLITIS, DIVERTICULAR DISEASE, DYSPEPSIA, and bowel obstruction or perforation.
 Disorders of the digestive glands may be responsible, among them HEPATITIS, CHOLECYSTITIS, GALLSTONES and PANCREATITIS. Digestive system pain may be felt in the upper, middle or lower abdomen, is often spasmodic and may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea.
Urinary tract disorders, including NEPHRITIS, PYELONEPHRITIS, URINARY STONES AND CYSTITIS, are possible causes.  Kidney pain is often also felt in the small of the back, and bladder disorders cause pain in the lower abdomen or genitals.
Disorders of the reproductive system can also cause abdominal pain. In women the commonest causes are DYSMENORRHOEA; disorders of early pregnancy, such as miscarriage; ECTOPIC PREGNANCY, SALPINGITIS or other pelvic infections and ENDOMETRIOSIS, OVARIAN CYSTS and ovulation pain. These conditions usually cause lower abdominal or lower back pain and may be accompanied by abnormal bleeding or discharge from the vagina. In men the commonest cause is inflammation of the prostate gland.
The severity, speed and circumstances of onset, together with the site and the accompanying symptoms will usually indicate whether the cause of abdominal pain is minor or serious.
One should consult a doctor if the pain

• bouts of pain are recurrent
• there have been previous attacks of similar pain due to peptic ulcer disease, gallstones, kidney stones or suspected appendicitis
• pain is persistent, even if not severe, in a child under 6 or an elderly person.
The causes of abdominal pain may be suspected from the patients description of its onset, nature, site, and other symptoms and signs. Investigations including blood tests, X-rays and ultrasound may be needed to confirm a tentative diagnosis.
Usually, GALL BLADDER pain is felt under the right ribs and may be constant or spasmodic.
PEPTIC ULCER DISEASE causes pain behind the lower end of breastbone.
APPENDICITIS pain starts around the navel and later settles in the lower right abdomen.
Pancreatic pain is felt deep in the upper abdomen.
Kidney pain is felt in the small of the back.
Pain from the uterus, tubes and ovaries is felt deep in the lower abdomen and pelvis, and may spread to the lower back or the inner side of the thighs.
A blocked ureter may cause spasmodic pain that spreads to the genitals or groin.

COLON CLEANSING


COLON CLEANSING
One should understand that the treatment concept is only on the palm! 
Colon cleansing is a procedure to detoxify the body, cleansing parasites, preventing toxicity. One may get rid of the harmful toxins in body and regain bowel  movements to normal in a effective, easy and simple way through SuJok Acupuncture. The main purpose of the colon is to help in the absorption of essential nutrients and facilitate the elimination of waste matter from the body.  However, when it does not function properly due to blocked waste matter in the colon, the harmful toxins cannot exit the body but get circulated back into the system. This may lead to other health problems such as constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, bloating, chronic fatigue, acid reflux(GERD), gas, mucus, and even skin, hair problems and other toxins – the very feeling that leads to consider colon cleansing, is poor diet. Without proper nutrients, natural whole foods, and plenty of fiber and water, the digestive tract does not function so well. The only way to prevent the harmful toxins from re-entering the body from the bowel is to ensure that the colon remains clean and can function properly. This can be done with introducing good bacteria into digestive system, which may improve the micro flora of the intestines. The basic principle of good digestive is that to put food in and within 24 hours that food should come out as waste.
One must increase intake of water to keep the system properly, and do a colon cleansing at least once a year.  It enhances the vitality and health. Its condition keeps on degrading as getting older.
ONE may try the following to improve your colon health;
 •Increase the servings of vegetables and fruits each day.  Add fresh or frozen blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries to your morning cereal. Snack on vegetables dipped in hummus, or fruit plus a handful of nuts.  Eating a variety of foods that cleanse colon in a effective way.  It prevents not just colon problems but a whole host of problems that can be traced back to a dirty and malfunctioning colon.
 A word of warning: green peas, beets, broccoli, carrots, parsnips, turnips and winter squash are prime culprits for causing gas.
 •Make all your grains whole grains. Don’t be fooled by color – just because bread is brown, does not mean it’s whole grain. Look for the word  ‘enriched’ in the ingredient list. If you see this word, it’s not whole grain.
 •Focus on adding non-bread sources of whole grains to your diet, too, such as brown rice, barley, quinoa, oats, millet, rye, spelt, buckwheat, amaranth, or other new-to-you foods.
 •Try “flipping” the food pyramid. You may be familiar with the food pyramid, which shows grains as the foundation. Instead, make fruits and vegetables the foundation of your diet, followed by grains, then protein foods. Make sweets just an occasional treat.
 •Flax-i-fy your diet. Ground flax seeds are one of the best ways to improve laxation. It help move stool out of your system. Try ground flax sprinkled on your cereal, salads, oatmeal, or yogurt. This is one of the single most effective ways to improve your body’s ability to eliminate waste.
 •Drink more water. Water, plain and simple, will make everything in your body function better, including your digestion and elimination. Don’t worry about the old advice — eight, 8-ounce glasses a day. Instead, use the color of your urine as a guide. If it’s pale yellow or straw-colored, you’re getting enough water. If it’s any darker than this, drink up! If kidney disease, consult with your doctor before increase water intake.
 •Juices-made from the fruits and vegetables have excellent colon-cleansing properties. As well as fiber, they contain cleansing salts and enzymes while the water content of juices helps flush out toxins and accumulated waste from the colon.  ‘Juice fasts’ are a popular homemade colon cleanse option but can affect the glycaemic response (insulin levels). If diabetic, consult with your doctor before a juice fast.
 If one make just a few of these changes, the colon, and the body, will thank you..
 If one;
 Want to lose weight, without any additional exercise or significant diet change?
 Constipated?
 Constipation causing feces to contain blood?
 Wants to boost body’s metabolism?
 Stomach a safe haven for parasites and worms?
 Excretion system still depending on harmful toxins and chemicals?
 Scared of side-effects that might encounter?
 Constant fatigue?
 But More Importantly… Are You Concerned About Trying An  Alternative Cure? No side-effects!
 As it is done through the energy concept of Acupuncture SuJok, that too only on the palm! Undoubtedly, it works Total effectiveness.

CONSTIPATION


CONSTIPATION
 Means do not have regular bowel movements, and may have pain or tenderness over the colon. There may be suffer from headaches and backache.  Constipation can be caused by weakness of the bowel muscles or by strong, irregular contractions of these muscles.  It may also occur when anyone uses laxatives too frequently or does not eat enough of certain kinds of foods, especially those that contain fibre.  In addition, constipation may accompany an illness that affects tissues or nerves of the bowel, such as the growth of a tumour that partially blocks the intestines. 
 When constipation results from a faulty diet, the constipated person should eat more green vegetables, fruit, whole grain bread and cereals, and other foods with fibre.  The person should  also  intake, drink ample quantities of water, to improve the condition of constipation.  Constipation may be a symptom of a serious disease.  If it persists, or is accompanied by rectal bleeding, it should be investigated.
 ACUPUNCTURE ONNURI, energy concept ‘constipation’ is mainly caused by disturbed transmitting function of the large intestine and also related to the function of the spleen, stomach and kidney. To overcome the problem one must opt for acupuncture.
 If looking for positive results that too within three applications of acupuncture, one must opt for this. Simultaneously, constipated person may draw with permanent marker BLACK color pen on palm particularly on left palm, as mentioned in the pix and should rub to the direction of arrows. It is too effective, according to color acupuncture.

The beauty of acupuncture is that each treatment is catered to the needs of the individual patient. Acupuncture energy concept will be chosen for overall well being with the objective of increasing circulation of the blood and Qi. High effect – 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, exceptionally effective concept!

FECES – loose


FECES – loose
 When there is almost no digestion occurs in the organ large intestine.  The large intestine stores waste food products and absorbs water and small amounts of minerals.  The waste materials that accumulate in the large intestine are roughage that cannot be digested in the body.  Bacterial action produces the final waste product, the feces, which are eliminated from the body.
 When the food is completely digested, it is absorbed by tiny blood and lymph vessels in the walls of the small intestine.  It is then carried into the circulation for nourishment of the body.  Food particles are small enough to pass through the walls of the intestine and blood vessels only when they are completely digested.
 The conditions of having too many and too loose movements of the bowels, feces can be controlled through COLOR ACUPUNCTURE concepts of SUJOK<ONNURI> medicine therapy, an alternative system of treatment.
 If a person is having problem of loose stool, one should mark with black color marker pen according to highlighted in the picture either on hands or feet or on both the hand & feet, and besides this, can also be massaged or rubbed towards the direction of the arrow. Though it is one such treatment, which is effective at all the levels. High effect ; when applied properly, an evident effect is often felt sometimes unbelievably so quickly.  One can overcome this problem.
 It has been highlighted for the benefits of mankind, human being. If any body requires more details may ask. Though, no medicine is recommended, hence no side effect, if applied properly.
 You may send your feedback accordingly. THOUGH, the information here is provided for educational and informational purposes but effective. In no way one should it be considered as offering medical advice, but a remedy is of natural one.
