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.

CLIMACTERIC


CLIMACTERIC
The high level of urbanization and intensity of production processes has impact on all spheres of human life. Women work in industry, and during their climacteric period they often continue to do routine work. It is noteworthy that even the physiological manifestations of climacteric have certain effects on female psychological well being. The notion of illness, irrespective of the etiological factor, is related to a condition of dis-adaptation in the system of vegetative functioning of an organism and manifestation of vegeto-visceral dysfunctions at various organic and systemic levels. The state of adjustment and vegetative functioning of an organism is considered fundamental in both physiology and pathology.
As age-related changes arrive in women compensatory reactions weaken and reproductive functions die away. The ovaries gradually seize to produce sex hormones. Owing to deficit of estrogen’s vaginal and bladder mucosa loose elasticity, become thinner, drier, easy-to-hurt and more vulnerable to inflammatory processes. This often causes pains during intimacy, involuntary passing waters when laughing or coughing, and also itching and burning sensations, which make a woman’s life quality considerably worse. In many women during climacteric hormone restructuring leads to upsetting of an organism’s adjustment processes which is clinically manifest in such symptoms as hot flushes, excessive sweating, insomnia, tachycardia, headaches, dizziness,etc. The woman becomes irritable, ill-tempered, nervous, lachrymose, sexual desire diminishes. These depressive conditions realize their influence on the organism through the vegetative nervous system (VNS), the basic status of which determines the organism’s response level.
The problem of treatment of climacteric syndrome (CS) in women during pre-menopause is very topical because of high frequency of this pathology. Therefore, choosing optimal therapeutic methods that prevent the development of pathological climacteric in women has important clinical implications. Though with the somatic condition getting better following basic therapy some of these disorders become less intensive, the majority of symptoms related to asthenia and vegeto-vascular impairment persist for quite a long time, and the problem of nervous and mental disturbance cannot be solved by medication alone and requires to look for new, mainly non-medication methods of treatment. It is noteworthy that acupuncture is nowadays a universally recognized, scientifically-grounded method aimed at regulation of stress and adaptation responses in the diversity of their physiological and clinical manifestations. In other words, the system of active points, along with the nervous and hormone systems, is a regulatory system without using which neither prevention of disease nor its full-value treatment are possible. The present study was aimed at investigating of effectiveness of acupuncture in treatment of pathological climacteric.
SJA is one of the most perspective, safe, cost-efficient and effective acupuncture methods. The areas corresponding to ovaries, uterus, brain and spinal cord were stimulated, syndromal treatment was administered, too.
Analysis of semiological structure prior to treatment showed that peripheral vegetovascular disorders such as excessive sweating, hot flushes, numbness of limbs, dyspnea and signs of meteolability (sensitivity to changes of weather, temperature fluctuations of the air, magnet storms, changes of humidity) was observed in all patients. The syndrome of liability of the cardiovascular system in the form of cardiology’s, flushes, palpitations, tachycardia, changes of heart rate, fluctuations of blood pressure, proneness to dizziness, headaches, rapid fatigue and nausea observed in patients. The psycho-emotional syndrome manifest as anxiety, irritability, tearfulness, feelings of anger and fear, and also depressive conditions were also found. Urogenital disorders such as incontinence of urine, cystalgias, vaginal pruritus, dispareunie were found in patients too.
With impairment of functions of any organ of system their operation and frequency characteristics get disturbed too, so, by the biological feedback law, stimulation of certain points adjusts the affected organ to the primary level. SJA is not aimed at removing organic changes but at compensating for biological defects of the endocrine, immune and nervous systems, and also of adrenergetic imbalance. Decreasing the noradrenaline tonus up to premenopausal level, increasing the level of dopamine and activity of endogenous opioid peptides, SJA has a positive effect on all manifestations of climacteric syndrome. In its turn, correction of vasomotor complaints, that is, excessive excitability, irritability, feelings of anger and fear, insomnia, headaches, dispareunia contributes to higher spirits and improvement of a woman’s life quality which produces a kind of “domino-effect”.
SuJok Acupuncture, particularly energy concept – 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 problems related to climacteric syndrome.
The beauty of the acupuncture SuJok is that each treatment is catered to the needs of an individual patients energy based. The treatment of energy concept is only on the miniature form of hands, chosen for the overall well being with the objective of increasing circulation of the blood and vital energy.
One must opt to have faster Total Effectiveness.

HORMONAL IMBALANCE


HORMONAL IMBALANCE  
Hormones are important for well-being of one’s life. Very often when women are in a bad mood, usually hormone levels fluctuate, and can affect mood, sexual desire, fertility and ovulation.  Means, the imbalance of hormones may impact negatively on how reproductive system responds. Every month, the female hormones estrogen and progesterone are produced. When estrogen and progesterone levels do not balance, this may have a effect on the health. The gonadotropin releasing hormone, also affects the functioning of the hypothalamus which in turn affects the pituitary gland, which then affects the ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus. The imbalance of estrogen hormones can also cause menopause and all the symptoms associated with it. These hormones are influenced by certain factors such as nutrition, diet, lifestyle, exercise, stress, emotions, age and ovulation. If imbalance, a diet that is low in fat and high in fiber should be taken.
 Often the symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance changes in menstruation ; Acne, Basal body temperature, Oily skin, Excessive hair growth, Fatigue, Dizziness, Allergy symptoms, Anxiety, Low sex drive, Headaches Weight gain, Depression, Endometriosis, Water retention, Premenstrual syndrome (PMS), Urinary tract infections (UTI’s).
Common condition that can lead to female infertility are linked to hormonal imbalance include:
Eating disorders – While hormonal changes do not cause eating disorders, an imbalance in hormones can occur in severe eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia. When an eating disorder occurs, the reproductive hormones which include estrogen and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) are low while the stress hormones are high. In addition, the thyroid and growth hormones are also considerably affected.
Glandular problems – Primary glands such as the hypothalamus, thyroid and pituitary glands are responsible for the production of reproductive hormones. They send signals during reproductive processes that cause various levels of hormone production. When hormonal abnormalities occur in these glands, fertility problems in women may occur. The primary glands may be affected by a wide range of underlying conditions such as weight changes, stress, medication, birth control pills and medical disorders such as hypothyroidism and tumors.
Ovulation disorders – These types of disorders are caused by high levels of androgen’s (male sex hormones) or projecting. Androgen levels promote the male sex characteristics and are responsible for the development of pubic hair and sex drive (libido).
Poly cystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) – This condition is caused by abnormally high levels of male hormone, which in turn results in high levels of lutenizing hormones as well as low levels of follicle stimulating hormones(FSH).
Abnormal cervical mucus – Irregularities related to cervical mucus include mucus that is too thick to allow sperm penetration even during ovulation or insufficient cervical mucus production in the cervical glands.
Premature menopause – Premature menopause is also known as premature ovarian failure. It occurs when women under the age of 40 lack hormones required for ovulation and menstruation as a result of a depleted supply of eggs.
Thyroid Problems – Thyroid problems may be caused when too much thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism) or too little (hypothyroidism), interrupts cycles.
Acupuncture SUJOK, itself is a powerful medicine, which aids to prevent diseases, control pain and increase both the ability to function and the quality of peoples lives.  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 such type of hormonal imbalance. The beauty of acupuncture is that each treatment is catered to the needs of an individual patient. The energy concept of treatment is only on the miniature form of hands or feets will be chosen for overall well being with the objective of increasing circulation of the blood and vital energy.  Acupuncture SUJOK methods, from the simplest to complex ones, are self-sufficient for coping with such problems and obtaining a stable remission of even chronic incurable diseases.

FERTILITY


FERTILITY
 Oriental medicine has a long history when it comes to enhancing fertility for both men and women. In fact,evidence that acupuncture has been used to aid fertility can be found in early medical literature dating back to 3AD.
 According to principles of energy, person’s health is determined by quality of Qi, the vital life energy, and the blood circulating through body. When Qi and blood are circulating properly, body is properly nourished and functioning optimally which, in turn, enhances fertility.
 Researchers have confirmed ACUPUNCTURES benefit in the following areas: Regulate menstrual cycle.  Improve sperm count and motility.  Reduce stress and anxiety associated with infertility.  Normalize hormone and endocrine systems.  Improve blood flow in uterus.  Decrease chance of miscarriage.  Increase the chance of pregnancy for women undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF).  Fertility treatments vary from person to person, but are usually scheduled for at least three consecutive cycles (twelve weeks).
 Acupuncture Increases IVF success – Acupuncture was delivered either just before or just after embryo transfer – a step in the process of in vitro fertilization (IVF) whereby one or several embryos are placed into the uterus. It is thought that acupuncture stimulates the neurotransmitters that trigger the production of gonadotrophin-releasing hormone, which controls menstrual cycle and a woman’s ovulation. It is also thought to stimulate blood flow to the uterus and boost the production of endogenous opioids, inducing body to relax.  Acupuncture Improves Sperm Quality.
 The ability to reproduce. Female fertility depends on normal ovulation and normal internal reproductive organs <ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, cervic and vagina>. Most women are fertile soon after their first mentrual period until their periods cease at the menopause, though conception may be less likely in the early teens and after the age of 40 <contraception will still be necessary at these times if pregenancy is not desired>. The most fertile part of te reproductive cycle is the few days that lead up to ovulation, which usually occurs about 14 days before a menstrual period. A healthy woman has more chance of conceiving from regular sexual intercourse during any menstrual cycle. In women problem may be failure to ovulate, blockage of the fallopian tubes, hormonal disturbances or defects in the uterus.
 Male fertility depends on the production of normal numbers of healthy sperm by the testes an unobstructed passage through the vas difference<sperm carrying tube>, seminal vesicle ,organ that contributes liquid to semen and stores sperm and urethra through which semen is ejaculated, normal production of other constituents of semen by the seminal vesicles and prostate, and the ability to achieve sexual penetration and ejaculate semen into the vagina.  Men become fertile during puberity and generally remain fertile as long as they are able to obtain a natural erection of the penis and climax with an ejaculation. In men, causes include defective sperm production, blocakage of the ejaculatory ducts or inability to ejaculate. There may be disorders of the seminal fluid or the cervical mucus that prevent sperm reaching the ovum,egg in the tube.
 Anovulation : When the body fails to ovulate, or release a mature egg. This normally occurs around 14 days before the next period. Failure to ovulate results in irregular periods, missed periods, infertility and abnormal bleeding. It can be sometimes difficult to track anovulation as some women still have monthly cycles. However, if you are having regular monthly periods, it is most likely that you are ovulating. It can be determine for sure if ovulation has occurred through bloodwork or transvaginal ultrasound.
 Oligoovulation : Ovulating infrequently or irregularly. Usually, a woman ovulates, or releases a mature egg once a month, about halfway through her cycle. Oligoovulation is seen in women with irregular cycles, or very long cycles (more then 50 days). This may make it difficult to track your fertile days if trying to conceive.
 Besides this, if pituitary gland is to stimulate or enhance its vital energy, as it produce more gonadeotrophins so that ova eggs mature in and are released from the ovaries.  
 Acupuncture SuJok is a traditionally accomplished through insertion of the very fine micro needles at the certain energy meridians, energy gates, joints of affected organs, or energy flow therapy of SuJok located in miniature form on hands and feets.  Thus, the  energy concept is one such treatment, which is effective at all the three levels – •BODY •MIND •EMOTIONS and provide positive effective results to have fertility,conception problems. The remission of the disease can be achieved in a effective way.  The course of treatment could defenietly be uneventful.  High effect – on pricking 1mm small micro tiny needles only on the hand to adjust the energy flow system of the body or can be done with small magnets similar to pulse size to put on fingers only. ONE MUST OPT IT as this system is powerful and safe with no side effect as medicine is ever given. If it does not give positive results, it will not harm in any way.
