ASTHMA


Bronchial ASTHMA 
• It is noteworthy that an excessive energy in the lung meridian would result in a stormy paroxysm associated with sonorous distant rale, largely occurring in the early morning time.  Where a paroxysm appeared to be of “quiet” type and the rales could be only perceived by means of auscultation, with aggravation coming in the second half of the day – this results from energy deficiency in the lung meridian, which is to be tonified. While conducting the diagnosis of application type, it is advisable that treatment should be started by activating a single byol meridian. Otherwise an inadequate placement of magnets simultaneously on two (paired) meridians could lead to a rapid development of a paroxysm.
 Moreover, a bronchospasm will be arrested by means of a slow, intense and prolonged massage of a point corresponding to the trachea bifurcation (sharply painful in all asthma patients). This can be done with fingers by simultaneously pressing upon the zone corresponding to the prominent vertebra. In providing a correspondence-system-based treatment a moxa should be applied to heat up what is called the asthma point until there emerges a bubble. The point is located between spinous processes of the thoracic spine – in the xiphoid process projection – and known to be the point of tenderness.
 The Six-Ki-oriented treatment using byol-chakras and byol-meridians should be provided on a strictly individual basis in each particular case. In order to work out a tactical algorithmization aimed at arresting paroxysms of asphyxia and at providing a differentiated and scheduled treatment strategy,following may be adopted. The principal pathogenic mechanisms of bronchial asthma were reviewed in the context of the theory of energy structures and substructures.
 As a matter of fact, an attack of asphyxia is likely to illustrate Six-Ki circulation. Prodromal, sensation of impending paroxysm and semi cough would be in line with the Wind stage. Immune inflammation, hyperemia, edema of the bronchial mucosa, a discomfort in the chest would correspond to Heat and Hotness stages. Sputum hyper-secretion will be related to Humidity. Bronchial spasm and blocking of the respiratory tracts with thick and tenacious sputum are associated with Dryness energy, while Coldness energy is manifested in a severe spasm, bronchial obstruction, dense vitreous sputum and acute respiratory incompetence. Hence, in order to alleviate a paroxysm of asphyxia it would be highly worthwhile to resort to the lung meridian involving sedation of Coldness and tonification of Hotness. If an illness proved to be associated with the unified energy, similar treatment will be provided in the large intestine meridian structure. As it happens, BA would affect the whole bronchial tree, upper respiratory tracts and accessory nasal sinuses. In the energy structure of the bronchi their muscles would reveal the branch Wind; the blood vessels – branch Heat; sympathetic and parasympathetic innervation will be associated with the branch energy of Hotness; the glands secreting the mucus – with the Humidity branch energy. Mucous membrane of the bronchi and the connective-tissue stoma would be related to the branch energy of Dryness, whereas the tracheal cartilage and bronchial serous membrane – to the branch Coldness. Therefore, hyperactivity and predisposition to spasms are likely to be associated with the fact that Coldness and Wind are predominating in the structure AH- or UM-Wind of the bronchi. This is specifically manifest provided bronchial asthma occurs in conjunction with cholelithiasis (in some patients the condition is caused by the energy imbalance of the liver). Disturbed circulation in the lungs will be brought on by the status of subbranch energies in the branch Heat of the Dryness, notably: the rate of the blood flow would be advanced due to the subbranch Wind; hyperemia is influenced by subbranch Heat and Hotness; perivascular edema – by subbranch Humidity; spasm and shunting are brought about by subbranch Dryness; pronounced diminution of the blood flow will be caused by subbranch Coldness. Vegetative innervation of the bronchi is conditional on the status of the Hotness branch energy: the sympathetic innervation contributing to the bronchodilation effect will be controlled by subbranch energies of Wind, Heat and Hotness in the branch Hotness of Dryness. Parasympathetic innervation whose intensified status results in hyper-secretion and bronchospasm is controlled by subbranch energies of Humidity, Dryness and Coldness in the branch Hotness of Dryness. For example, to eliminate the vegetative imbalance at the bronchopulmonary system dimension, the sedation of sub branch Dryness and tonification of subbranch Heat in the Hotness of Dryness would be indicated. Of special importance is the energy evaluation of the branch Humidity of the lung, which is helpful in controlling the status of the submucosal layer of the bronchi where a persistent immune inflammation is localized and where the hypertrophied mucous glands reside – the focus of hyper secretion and dyscrinism. When the subbranch Wind predominates in the branch Humidity of Dryness, the sputum is ether lacking at all or present in negligible quantity. With subbranch Heat, Hotness and Humidity in excess, however, the sputum is abundant, watery, with the sub mucous layer showing an immune inflammation and edema. Where the subbranch Dryness energy is excessive, the sputum proves to be tenacious, in the form of the bronchial molds, and is noted for having the Curschmann’s spirals. If the subbranch Coldness energy demonstrates excessiveness, the sputum appears to be dense, vitreous, notable for a large quantity of calcium crystals (in effect, crystallizing would set on before a paroxysm of asphyxia and tend to intensify during a magnetic storm). In order for these disturbances to be accurately corrected, a comprehensive diagnosis of the AH- and UM-Humidity should be arranged to make sure that a relevant chakra or a rent channel are adequately chosen.
 Of great practical value is the fact that the UM-Dryness framework would concurrently represent the state of the adrenal glands, and it is this very framework where the substructure of the lung branch Dryness will be projected on. In the meantime, the branch Coldness in UM-Dryness with which are associated both the pronounced bronchospasm and crystallization, and the allergic lesion – the mechanism to trigger bronchial asthma – will become manifest in the renal (urinary bladder) channels in the form of subbranch energies. Where the asphyxia attacks were related to a specific phase during a menstrual cycle – for instance, if they come in just before or during the monthlies (i.e. at the Dryness or Coldness stage of a monthly cycle) there should be performed sedation of the subbranch Dryness (Coldness) in the branch Hotness of UM-Dryness, as well as sedation of the branch Dryness (Coldness) in UM-Dryness.
 This is how one may be able to provide treatment at the main, branch, and subbranch energies dimension, and to ensure a unique individual approach to each and every BA patient.
 In efforts to diagnose and treatment of the Bronchial Asthma patients with the following syndromes ;
 Complete asthma (characterized by severe expiratory dyspnea ; asphyxia noted for sonorous distant rale; alterations in remission unavailable.
 -Wind and coldness penetrate into the lungs.
 -Hotness and sputum in the lungs.
 -Energy imbalance in the liver.
 -Energy imbalance in the liver, hotness has emerged.
 Hollow asthma (severe, but silent dyspnea; asphyxia with mild physical manifestations; dyspnea is keeping up during remission).
 The lung’s energy is running low.
 The spleen’s energy is running low.
 There is little Yang in the kidney.
 There is little Yin in the kidney.
 The “root” of Bronchial Asthma is believed to reside in the kidney, with the main pathognomonic process developing in the spleen, while the disease manifestation – or what can be described as its “flower” – is to be referred to the lungs. It is an easy matter to note that the cited energy – related substructures, which would in essence coincide with the syndromes offered by the mainstream, are fairly notable for greater accuracy and flexibility in as far as their therapeutic approaches are concerned.
 Symptoms of asthma generally include ;
 Chest tightness.
 Pain or pressure felt in the chest.
 Chronic cold, persistent cough, especially at night or in the early mornings, itchiness in the throat.
 Phlegmatic noise in throat.
 Blue lips, fingers. 
 An audible ‘wheezing’ sound symptoms of airway narrowing is characteristic of asthma,especially when exhaling.
 Shortness and difficult of breath.
 Restlessness.
 These “unusual” asthma symptoms include ;
 Rapid breathing,
 Sighing,
 Fatigue and inability to exercise properly,
 Difficulty sleeping,
 Anxiety and difficulty in concentrating,
 Noises emanating from the chest usually during exhalation,
 Influenced by diurnal factors,
 Chronic cough may have several causes such as postnasal drip, pneumonia, bronchitis, cigarette smoking, acid reflux, heart disease, lung cancer, and medications such as ACE inhibitors used for treating high blood pressure.
 Episode of nocturnal asthma, but possible explanations include ;
 Exposure to allergens at night such as dust mites or animal dander,
 Decrease in cortisone and adrenaline levels that normally occurs at night, resulting in increased reactivity of the airways,
 Reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus,
 Cooling of the airways that cause spasm of the major airways,
 Sinusitis and postnasal drip; and
 Sleep apnea.
 Chronic bronchitis, there is longstanding inflammation and swelling of the inner lining of the airways, and the inflammation and swelling cause narrowing of the airways. The inflammation also stimulates production of mucous within the airways that becomes the sputum produced by coughing.
 BUT, with SuJok Acupuncture, which itself is such a powerful medicine, 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 Bronchial Asthma.  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 Su Jok therapy.
 Su Jok therapy has proved to be in tune with the therapeutic methods advised by the International Su Jok acupuncture by the points corresponding to the lungs and tracheobronchial tree, and also by Six Ki points.
 The beauty of SuJok acupuncture is that each treatment is catered to the needs of an individual patient. Its energy concept of treatment is only on palm, chosen for overall well being with the objective of increasing circulation of the blood and vital energy.
 One must opt for SuJok acupuncture to have total effectiveness.

SPASM-CRAMPS.


SPASM-CRAMPS.
 A painful spasm means excessive and prolonged contraction of muscle. When cramp occurs in the involuntary muscles of internal organs such as the gut, the pain is called colic. The most common cramps that affect voluntary, consciously controlled muscles are exercise induced cramps, heat cramps and night-time leg cramps. Clonic spasms: are fast-alternating contractions and relaxation of muscles manifested by stereotype movements of the some body parts or another occurring with the various range of motion. Hiccups (spasms of the diaphragm muscles), Stammer(spasms of the speech motor muscles), Nodding spasm of the sternocleidomastoid muscles, paralysis of gaze(the oculomotor muscles spasm).
Exercise induced cramps occur during or after the strenuous or unaccustomed exercise, and are a warning that the muscles are exhausted and their warning that muscles are exhausted and their blood supply is not keeping up with the needs for oxygen and glucose and the removal of waste products. Rest, stretching the muscles and rubbing the affected area will relieve the cramp.
Heat cramps result from the loss of too much salt due to excessive sweating from exercise and or from the hot weather. This is especially so in people unaccustomed to hot, dry climates where sweat is not noticed because of the rapid evaporation. Heat cramps often affect the hands and feet first. That can be prevented and relieved rapidly by drinking fluids or eating foods containing salt. An individuals appetite tells how much body needs.
Night cramps in the legs and feet are a common problem. It is estimated that people over 40 suffer them from time to time and they become more common with age. The calf muscles are affected most and you can often feel the hard, knot like muscle at the pain site. The cause of night cramps is usually not clear. Poor circulation has often been blamed but most people who get cramps have normal blood supply to their legs. A plausible explanation is that sleeping in the same position for a long time slows down circulation to parts of the leg and the reduced oxygen supply makes muscles more sensitive to any stimulus that would make them contract.
Another theory is that minor ageing changes that could cause the cramps which affect the longest nerves and most distant muscles first which accords with the higher frequency of cramps is older people and their foot and calf muscles. Night cramps happen more often in hot weather, so low salt may contribute. Occasionally cramps can be a side effect of certain medications. If you get a cramp the best way to relieve it is by stretching the muscles. For calf muscles, stand on your toes and bring your heels down firmly. Keeping your toes on the floor. Prevention of night cramps is difficult. Exercise to stretch calf muscles help many people. Stretching exercises for calf muscles-stand about 1 metre from a wall. Lean forward, keeping heels on the floor and using your hands and arms to regulate the tilt, untill you feel a moderate but not painful fulling sensation in your calf muscles. Hold for 10 seconds then relax for 5, and continue for 5 stretches. Repeat this.
Tonic spasm:are longer lasting, characterised by sticking of the body parts in forced postures. Spasm develop in infectious and degenerative disease of nervous system, developmental defects and injuries of brain, disease of other organs and systems accompanied by cerebral hypoxia and impaired metabolism (intoxications, poisoning, hyperblirubinemia and others) and also in neuroses. Trismus or lockjaw(masseteric cramp), graphospasm(occupation-related spasm of finger and hand muscles found in certain jobs such as musicians, hairdressers, telegrapher, shoemakers, tailors, dressmakers, milkmaids, typists, blepharospasm (spasm of orbicular muscle of eye in watchmakers) systremma(a kind os spasm often occurring in ballet dancers).
SPASMS:spastic response-may develop in a quite healthy individual during a short time increase of the brains readiness for convulsions due to stressful events, infection, intoxication, overstrain etc.
External causes:are less significant for development of spastic syndrome. It occurs in an active pathological process in nervous system characterised by formation of congestive excitation foci in cerebral cortex and is manifested by recurrent spasmodic attacks.
The traditional theory of ACUPUNCTURE ONNURI energy concept of eight ki or triorigin states that vital energy is the animating force behind life, the cosmic forces of Nature, and is the root of all things. It is said that if one stays in touch with the vital energy, ones life will be healthy in all its phases, be it BODY. MIND. EMOTIONS!
Acupuncture, as itself is a powerful medicine, helped many who were not successfully treated through conventional western medicine. Several conditions can be dramatically improved or remedied in full including, SPASM,CRAMPS!
The course of treatment is undoubtedly totally effectiveness.
