PSORIASIS


Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease characterized by thick, raised, dry, scaling red patches covered with silvery-white scales and a reddened skin disorder with periodical marked exacerbation, eruptions of the skin. The immune system attacks the skin from the inside out. But it’s the effects of the inflammatory cells on the skin that cause the skin to get red, thick, and the scaly. In most people, these patches are the only symptom of the disease. But the patches may burn, crack, and bleed, especially if scratching irritates the skin. The patches usually appear on the elbows and knees. But in severe cases, they may cover the body. Psoriasis is associated with many cases of arthritis, though the skin patches themselves do not cause the arthritis.
However, an attack of the disease results when cells in the outer layer of the skin divide more rapidly than normal. These cells do not mature completely and the skin becomes abnormally thick. In addition, the number and size of blood vessels in the lower layer of the skin increase abnormally. It may be inherited, but it is not contagious. An attack may be influenced by an emotional condition, such as tension. In others, it may be affected by such environmental factors as sunlight and cold weather. TNF’ tumor necrosis factor, Is a Signal That Can Start the Process – TNF helps the immune system protect the body against infection or the effects of injury. During a normal immune response, TNF attached to special cells throughout the body. The attachment of TNF activates these immune cells, causing them to release chemicals that can give to inflammation; people with psoriasis often have increased levels of TNF in their affected skin areas.
BUT, according to the energy concepts of eight origin of acupuncture Onnuri (SuJok), psoriasis is an energy of Hetero disease, since keratinocytes formation rate increases and cell cycle is normally reduced, if treatment is to be for emotional level – unified energy’s – tonification of joy emotions, and sedation of sadness emotions according to axis of SuJok six ki, on byol chakra as well as on meridian of Large intestine joint for better effective results. One must opt for acupuncture SuJok to have total effectiveness from the Psoriasis as each treatment is catered to the needs of an individual. Needless to say, if the SKIN problem in your life is throwing you off-balance, consider coming in for a treatment through acupuncture to regain the peace of mind and stay healthy as most of the skin diseases can give you CURE effect of problems related to skin through the natural healing concepts. The course of treatment is definitely uneventful. As lifestyle habits makes a lot of difference. One must have to change the same if to opt for cure effect of Psoriasis.

Chikungunya


CHIKUNGUNYA

Chikungunya, a viral disease that is transmitted through the mosquito bites. It is not possible to have the chikungunya through the direct contact from another person who is affected through it. The condition is not a fatal one and for now there are no specific vaccines or medicines available but mosquito control is the best method of prevention of chikungunya.
Symptoms;
Fever
Chills,
Nausea,
Vomiting,
Joint pains,
Stiffness and
Headaches.
Chikungunya may happen suddenly and often is accompanied with some rashes on the skin. However the most painful symptom is severe joint pain. Mouth ulcers, conjunctivitis and loss of taste may also hassle patients of chikungunya. It is not a fatal condition, but the effects can last for years. The fever will subside early but joint pains may remains.
The post disease syndrome can easily be treated through acupuncture SuJok effectively.
In preventive measures one has to increase the intake of fluids especially water to be in excess.
And to prevent mosquito bites.
The condition may not be fatal, but it can leave scars for life.
Coconut water could be the effective solution to Chikungunya.
According to energy concept of acupuncture SuJok, the meridian gall bladder is the dominant energy to tackle such problems for speedy results.

SICKLE CELL


SICKLE CELL
 Respiratory diseases are common among children, and insufficient effectiveness of traditional treatment schemes make it real to study effectiveness of non traditional therapeutic methods and their action on the immune system. There have been reports of favourable influence of acupuncture SuJok on a number of immunological indices.  Normally,sickly children(SC) who falls ill often with bronchopulmonary diseases also known as; Anemia-sickle cell, Hemoglobin SS disease(Hb SS) or Sickle cell disease and find the clinico-immunological effectiveness of using Acupuncture SuJok.

Children who were often suffering from bronchopulmonary diseases (SC BP) with frequent recurrence of acute bronchitis or acute bronchopneumonia. Application of SuJok acupuncture in treatment of sickle-cell has a positive effect, which correlates with data about the effectiveness of this method indicated by a shorter duration of the basic clinical manifestations during the acute period of recurrent disease and by the decreased several episodes during further observation.
Sickle Cell Disease is an inherited blood disorder that affects red blood cells. People with sickle-cell disease have red blood cells that contain mostly hemoglobin*S. Sometimes these red blood cells become sickle-shaped(crescent-shaped) and have difficulty passing through small blood vessels. Normal red blood cells are round like doughnuts, and they move through small blood tubes in the body to deliver oxygen. Blood cell Sickle-shaped-become hard, sticky and shaped like sickles used to cut wheat. When these hard and pointed red cells go through the small blood tube, they clog the flow and break apart. This can cause pain, damage and a low blood count, or anemia. When sickle-shaped cells block small blood vessels,less blood can reach that part of the body. Tissue that does not receive a normal blood flow eventually becomes damaged. This is what causes the complications of sickle-cell disease.  There is a substance in the red cell called hemoglobin that carries oxygen inside the cell. Hemoglobin is a protein inside red blood cells that carries oxygen. Sickle cell anemia caused by an abnormal type of hemoglobin called hemoglobin S. Hemoglobin S distorts the shape of red blood cells, especially when there is low oxygen.
The distorted red blood cells are shaped like crescents or sickles. These fragile, sickle-shaped cells deliver less oxygen to the body’s tissues. They also can clog more easily in small blood vessels, and break into pieces that disrupt blood flow.
One little change in this substance causes the hemoglobin to form long rods in the red cell when it gives away oxygen. These rigid rods change the red cell into a sickle shape instead of the round shape, the sickling process begins. 
Hemoglobin, main substance of the red blood cell. It helps to carry oxygen from the air into lungs to all parts of the body. Normal red blood cells contain hemoglobin A. Hemoglobin S and hemoglobin C are abnormal types of hemoglobin. Normal red blood cells are soft and round and can squeeze through tiny blood tubes,vessels. People with sickle-cell conditions make a different form of hemoglobin A called hemoglobin S(S stands for sickle). Red blood cells containing mostly hemoglobin S do not live as long as normal red blood cells. They also become stiff, distorted in shape and have difficulty passing through the body’s small blood vessels. When sickle-shaped cells block small blood vessels,less blood can reach that part of the body. Tissue that does not receive a normal blood flow eventually becomes damaged. This is what causes the complications of sickle-cell disease. 

Sickle Cell Disease are : Sickle Cell Anemia(SS), Sickle-Hemoglobin C Disease(SC), Sickle Beta-Plus Thalassemia and Sickle Beta-Zero Thalassemia.
Sickle Cell trait (AS) is an inherited condition in which both hemoglobin A and S are produced in the red blood cells, always more A than S. Sickle cell conditions are inherited from parents in much the same way as blood type, hair color and texture, eye color and other physical traits. The types of hemoglobin a person makes in the red blood cells depend upon what hemoglobin genes the person inherits from his or her parents. Like most genes, hemoglobin genes are inherited in two sets-one from each parent.  If one parent has Sickle Cell Anemia and the other is Normal, all the children will have sickle-cell trait.
Complications from the sickle cells are destroyed rapidly  and blocking blood flow and early breaking apart in the body of people with the disease-causing ;
  Anemia – low red blood cell counts
  Attacks of abdominal pain
  Blood blockage in spleen or liver
  Bone pain, damage
  Breathlessness
  Delayed growth and puberty
  Eye damage
  Fatigue
  Fever
  Gallstones formation
  Lung blockage tissue damage(acute chest syndrome
  Paleness
  Priapism; painful and prolonged erection or painful episodes
  Rapid heart rate
  Spleen damage  makes sickle-cell disease patients, especially young children,easily overwhelmed by certain    bacterial infections.
  Ulcers on the lower legs (in adolescents and adults) or skin ulcers
  Other symptoms include:
  Chest pain
  Excessive thirst
  Frequent urination
  Infections increased
  Jaundice, yellowish eyes
  Kidney damage and loss of body water in urine
  Poor eyesight/blindness
  Strokes
  The following guidelines help to keep the sickle-cell patient healthy ;
  •Taking the vitamin folic acid supplementation(folate) daily to help make new red cells
  •All vaccination till age six to prevent serious infection
  •Drinking plenty of water daily
  •Avoid too hot or too cold temperatures
  •Avoid over exertion and stress
  •Getting plenty of rest
  •Getting regular check-ups from knowledgeable health care providers
Patients and families should watch for the following conditions that need an urgent medical evaluation;
Fever, Chest pain, Shortness of Breath, Increasing tiredness, Abdominal swelling,  Unusual headache, Any sudden weakness or loss of feeling, Painful erection that will not go down), Sudden vision change, Oxygen tension.
Signs and tests
Tests commonly performed to diagnose and monitor patients with sickle-cell anemia include:

Complete blood count (CBC)
Hemoglobin electrophoresis
Sickle cell test
Other tests may include:
 Bilirubin
 Blood oxygen
 CT scan or MRI
 Peripheral smear
 Serum creatinine
 Serum hemoglobin
 Serum potassium
 Urinary casts or blood in the urine
 White blood cell count
 One may prevent sickling of red blood cells by:
 •Getting enough fluids
 •Getting enough oxygen
 •Quickly treating infections
THOUGH, Acupuncture SuJok, which itself is a powerful medicine, and aids in strengthening the immune system and serves to prevent diseases, control pain and increase both the ability to act and the quality of people’s 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 Sickle Cell Disease.
Acupuncture SuJok is a traditionally accomplished through insertion of very fine needles at the certain energy gates, joints of affected organs  in the miniature form of hands or feet.  The remission of the disease can be achieved and medicaments therapy simultaneously can be reduced or eliminated altogether.  The course of treatment is definitely benefited to such patients, it is quite possible to increase the Immunity, Hemoglobin level, Blood Cells count.  No medication is to be stopped immediately untill there is a pathological positive results. One must opt Acupuncture SuJok to enhance the Immunity to overcome such problems.

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.
SuJokacupuncture’ therapy stands as a highly efficient method of non medicamentous treatment of such patients. The Su Jok therapy approach has the capacity to remedy health disorders at a variety of levels, including emotional, mental, at the somatic (inter-systemic) 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 Pancreatitis pathogenesis. 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,also helped many people who were not successfully treated through conventional western medicine. Several conditions can be dramatically improved or remedied in full.

Lupus


LUPUS
Lupus is a chronic inflammatory (also known as systemic lupus erythematosus) is an autoimmune disease, which causes immune system, natural defense system to turn against own tissues and organs throughout the body. Lupus may trigger the health problems (including kidney disease, neurological dysfunction, and rheumatoid arthritis), lupus can set off inflammation and can cause damages in the heart, lungs, blood vessels, brain, joints, skin, kidneys and other parts of the body. While complications arising from lupus can be fatal, the disease often goes into remission, which can sometimes last for years. It could be because of genetic factors or environmental such as infections, certain antibiotics, particularly sulfa and penicillin drugs, UV light, severe stress, hormones and certain other drugs play a key role in triggering disease symptoms. The symptoms of Lupus vary widely among patients, as do the treatments which range from avoiding stress.
Symptoms; Although lupus symptoms vary widely from case to case, some signs and symptoms include:
•feeling very tired and fatigue : Nearly all people with lupus have mild to extreme fatigue. Even mild cases of lupus cause an inability to engage in daily activities and exercise. Increased fatigue is a classic sign that a symptom flare is about to occur.
•a butterfly-shaped rash on the face (covering the cheeks and bridge of the nose) The rash often happens after one has been in the sun. Mouth sores and hair loss may occur
•weight gain or loss
•Joint and muscle pain and swelling : Most people with lupus have joint pain(arthritis)and muscle pain considered to be the first sign of the disease. Joints may be red and warm, and may swell. Morning stiffness may also be felt. Lupus arthritis often occurs on both sides of the body at the same time, particularly in the wrists, small joints of the hands, elbows, knees, and ankles.
•mouth sores
•memory loss and tissue damage throughout the body or blood cells.
•skin lesions(typically aggravated by sun exposure)-most people with lupus develop skin rashes,an important clue to the diagnosis. In addition to the butterfly rash over the cheeks and bridge of the nose,other common skin symptoms include skin sores or flaky red spots on the arms, hands, face, neck, or back; mouth or lip sores; and a scaly, red or purple raised rash on the face, neck, scalp, ears, arms, and chest.
Sensitivity to light: Exposure to ultraviolet light (such as sunlight or tanning parlors) typically worsens the skin rash and can trigger lupus flares. Sensitivity to light affects many of those with lupus, with fair-skinned people with lupus tending to be more sensitive.
Nervous system symptoms: The majority of people with lupus develop nervous system problems, most commonly headaches, depression, or anxiety. Memory loss is less common.
Heart problems: People with lupus may develop chest pain or inflammation of the heart sac (pericarditis), which may cause severe, sudden pain in the center of the left side of the chest that may spread to the neck, back, shoulders, or arms.
Mental health problems: People with lupus may develop problems such as anxiety and depression. Such problems can be caused by lupus, the medications used to treat it, or the stress of coping with chronic illness.
Fever : Most people with lupus will sometimes have a low-grade fever related to the disease. Fever is sometimes a first sign of the disease.
Changes in weight: Many people with lupus lose weight when their disease is active (flaring).
Hair loss : People with lupus may experience periods of hair loss, either in patches or spread evenly over the head. This hair loss is usually not permanent.
Swollen glands : Many people with lupus eventually develop swollen lymph glands during a flare.
Raynaud’s phenomenon: Some people with lupus have this condition. It affects the small vessels that supply blood to the skin and the soft tissues under the skin of the fingers and toes, causing them to turn white and/or blue or red. The skin affected will feel numb, tingly, and cold to the touch.
Inflammation of blood vessels in the skin or bleeding from the blood vessels can lead to small or large blue spots or small reddish spots on the skin or nail beds.
Swelling of the hands and feet: Some people with lupus have kidney problems, which can prevent extra fluids from being removed from the body tissues. As fluid collects, the hands and feet may swell.
Anemia : Anemia is a decrease in the amount of the oxygen-carrying substance (hemoglobin) found in red blood cells. Many people with an ongoing disease such as lupus develop anemia because they don’t have enough red blood cells.
There are other conditions with symptoms similar to lupus.
Lupus is not contagious. A person may be born with a certain genetic makeup that affects how the immune system functions or makes him or her at risk for lupus. A combination of factors can trigger the autoimmune process, some of which may affect one person but not another.
Smoking may increase the risk of getting lupus and may make the disease more severe.
Some medications are suspected triggers of lupus and symptom flares.
Some infections are suspected triggers. Some people who have cytomegalovirus (CMV), parvovirus (such as fifth disease), and hepatitis C infections eventually develop lupus. The Epstein-Barr virus has been linked to lupus in children.
Chemical exposure has been known to trigger lupus. Suspected chemical toxins include trichloroethane in well water and silica dust. Hair dyes and straighteners, linked to lupus in the past, are no longer considered to be lupus triggers.
Lupus symptoms vary widely, and they come and go. The times when symptoms get worse are called relapses, or flares. The times when symptoms are not so bad are called remissions.
Diagnosis of lupus the most common symptoms that blood has certain proteins. These proteins are called antinuclear antibodies, or ANAs. But other problems can cause your body to make ANAs,so doctors will use blood tests and other tests to find out if you have lupus.
How to manage lupus?
One of the goals of controlling mild to moderate lupus symptoms is to prevent flares, the times when the symptoms are worse. Some of the other things can do include:
Rest to reduce stress.
Avoid the sun.
Wear sunscreen and protective clothing when to be outside.
Exercise regularly to prevent fatigue and joint stiffness.
Stop smoking.
Learn the warning signs of a symptoms flare, such as fatigue, pain, and rash, and take steps to control them.
With good self-care, most people with lupus can keep doing their regular daily activities.
It is important to learn about lupus so that you can understand how it might affect your life and how you can best cope with it.

FEVER and COLD


FEVER and COLD  
A common cold is an inflammation of upper respiratory tract caused by infection with common cold viruses. A common cold occurs more often than any other disease. A person may suffer from a common cold several times in a year, usually lasts from three to eight days. The initial signs of cold are feeling of soreness of throat and congestion of the nasal passages. Although diseases normally begins in the nose and throat, it affects all parts of body. Its usual symptoms are running nose, sneezing, a rise in temperature, headache, sore throat, chill aches and pains in body, and loss of appetite. A common cold results from exposure to virus. Its intensity however depends upon state of health of person and environmental factors. Low vitality, exposure to cold, lack of sleep, mental depression, fatigue and factors such as sudden changes in temperature, dust and other irritating inhalations are important contributory causes.
An abnormally raised body temperature is controlled by the hypothalamus in the brain which monitors blood temperature, when the temperature falls too low, the hypothalamus stimulates shivering which generate heat through muscle activity and constriction of skin blood vessels to reduce heat loss from the surface of the body. Fever leads to sweating and an increased breathing rate both of which increases heat loss.
Most fevers are caused by viral or bacterial infections. White blood cells that increase in number to fight infection release chemicals called pyrogens that act on the hypothalamus causing it to raise body temperature in an attempt to destroy the invading micro-organisms. Fever may also occur in non-infectious conditions such as Graves disease some Autoimmune disease in which the immune system produces antibodies that attack one or more of the body’s own tissues such as Lupus erythematosus, some malignancies such as Heat stroke.
Chills accompanied by fever; occurrence of chills and fever at the beginning of the disease indicates exogenous exterior syndrome. It is the manifestation of invasion of the body surface by the pathogenic factor and its contending with the anti pathogenic energy. Exterior syndromes resulting from exposure to pathogenic wind cold usually manifest as severe chills and mild fever with the accompanying symptoms and signs such as absence of sweating, headache and general aching and a superficial and tense pulse. Exterior syndromes due to invasion by pathogenic wind heat are characterized by mild chills and severe fever, the patient also reveals thirst sweating and a superficial and rapid pulse.
Alternate fever and chills; the patient may notice alternate attacks of chills and fever. This is the representative symptoms of intermediate syndromes. The patient may also complain of bitter taste in the mouth, thirst and fullness and stuffiness in the chest and hypochondrium.
Fever without chills; fever may occur without chills. Persistent high fever with aversion to heat instead suggest interior heat syndromes of excess type due to transmission of the pathogenic factors from the exterior too the interior with excessive heat in the interior. The accompanying symptoms and signs are profuse sweating, sever thirst and a surging pulse. If fever occurs or becomes worse at a fixed hour of the day, it is known as tidal fever. Tidal fever in the afternoon or evening accompanied by night sweating and a red tongue with little moisture indicates deficiency of yin; afternoon fever with constipation and fullness and pain in the abdomen suggests excess heat of the meridian.
Chills without fever; the subjective feeling of chills without fever indicates interior cold syndrome of deficiency type. The patient may also have chilled appearance, cold limbs and a deep, slow and weak pulse.
As SuJok acupuncture 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, simultaneously improve the body’s immune function. The system is quite effective in controlling fever and chills. One can get the positive effective results that too in initial one or two applications.

PARKINSON’S DISEASE (PD)


PARKINSON’S DISEASE(PD)
• A slowly progressive disease that causes degeneration in certain parts of the brain and is characterised by slow movements, rigid muscles, tremor and a tendency to fall easily. The effects of Parkinson’s disease also called paralysis agitans, result mainly from degeneration of nerve connections at the base of the brain. It is mainly a disturbance of voluntary movement caused by the degeneration of the inhibitory nerve fibres in the basal ganglia of the brain. Mental faculties are affected. Parkinson’s disease is rare before the age of 50 but its incidence increases in elderly people, men are more affected than women.
Secondary Parkinson’s is the name given to the same symptoms when they develop as a result of other damage to these nerve connections caused by inflammation of the brain, Encephalitis, reduced blood supply to the base of the brain or disorders of nerve impulse transmission due to some drugs or poisons.
Symptoms : The first symptom is usually slight tremor or trembling in hands, arms, legs, jaw, or head ; which is worse when the limb is at rest more particularly in the hands but better when it is in use. As the disease worsens, more muscles on both sides of the body become affected by tremor, rigidity and weakness. There may be constant trembling of the hands and uncontrolled nodding of the head. Walking becomes stiff, shuffling and unstable and the back develops a rigid stoop. The muscles of the face tighten and the expression becomes fixed and mask like. Speech becomes softer, monotonous and stammering. The disease may be identified by a weakness and spasticity of the face muscles causing the characteristic mask like expression, also a tendency for the mouth to stay open with excessive salivation, muscle stiffness or aching, slowness of movement, small handwriting, rigidity of limbs and the characteristic shuffling gait  that includes a tendency to lean forward, small quick steps as if hurrying forward (called festination), and reduced swinging of the arms. They also may have trouble initiating movement (start hesitation), and they may stop suddenly as they walk (freezing).
Parkinson’s disease symptoms often begin on one side of the body. However, as it progresses, the disease eventually affects both sides. Even after the disease involves both sides of the body, the symptoms are often less severe on one side than on the other. The intellect is not affected until late in the disease and because of this people with Parkinson’s disease often become depressed by their loss of mobility and independence.
Movement and coordination in the body are controlled in part by a chemical in brain called dopamine. In Parkinson disease, dopamine – producing nerve cells are damaged, gradually reducing dopamine levels in the parts of the brain thought to control movement. Without dopamine, the brain doesn’t send signals to the muscles so that they can function properly. Many researchers believe that PD may be caused by a combination of genetic factors and environmental factors, such  as exposure to certain toxins. But not all movement difficulties are related to Parkinson’s disease.
Symptoms, and the intensity of the symptoms varies from person to person.
Depression. This is a common problem and may appear early in the course of the disease, even before other symptoms are noticed. Emotional changes.  Difficulty with swallowing and chewing. Muscles used in swallowing may work less efficiently in later stages of the disease. In these cases, food and saliva may collect in the mouth and back of the throat, which can result in choking or drooling. These problems also may make it difficult to get adequate nutrition. Speech-language therapists, occupational therapists, and dietitians can often help with these problems. Speech changes.  Urinary problems or constipation.
Skin problems. In Parkinson’s disease, it is common for the skin on the face to become very oily, particularly on the forehead and at the sides of the nose. The scalp may become oily too, resulting in dandruff. In other cases, the skin can become very dry. These problems are also the result of an improperly functioning of autonomic nervous system. Excessive sweating, another common symptom, is usually controllable with medications used for Parkinson’s disease.
Sleep : A good night’s sleep keeps body and mind functioning properly, but PD can include symptoms that interfere with the sleep – such as vivid dreams, sleeplessness, or restless legs. Establish a regular routine by going to bed and waking up at the same time each day. Avoid oversleeping. Create a comfortable, peaceful environment in bedroom. 
Dementia or other cognitive problems.
Orthostatic hypo tension, a sudden drop in blood pressure when a person stands up from a lying-down position. This may cause dizziness, lightheadedness, and, in extreme cases, loss of balance or fainting.
Muscle cramps and dystonia.
Pain. Many people with Parkinson’s disease develop aching muscles and joints because of the rigidity and abnormal postures often associated with the disease.
Fatigue and loss of energy. The unusual demands of living with Parkinson’s disease often lead to problems with fatigue, especially late in the day. Fatigue may be associated with depression or sleep disorders, but it also may result from muscle stress or from overdoing activity when the person feels well. Fatigue also may result from akinesia – trouble initiating or carrying out movement. Exercise, good sleep habits, staying mentally active, and not forcing too many activities in a short time may help to alleviate fatigue.
Sexual dysfunction.
Exercise : It can help make living easier by : Helping one feel more in control of self movements.  Reducing gait problems and muscle /joint injuries.  Improving flexibility.  Increasing muscle strength and balance.  Increasing energy, stamina and cardiovascular health.  Stretching, which will increase range of motion and relieve muscle tension.  Tai chi, which may improve the energy balance and provide mind and body relaxation.  Yoga, which uses stretching and breathing techniques to promote wellness.
Nutrition : Good nutrition is one of the most important part. Make these nutrition habits : Drink 8-10 glasses of water a day, even if you aren’t thirsty.  Eat natural laxatives – prunes, vegetables, and foods high in fiber – to prevent or relieve constipation . Eat something cold and sour – before a meal to help prevent dry mouth.
Avoid alcohol, caffeine, and other stimulants — especially in the evenings.
Minimize fluid intake in the hours before bed time.
Avoid watching TV, reading, or eating in bed.
Exercise regularly.
Remember that tending to your emotional health is as important as tending to your physical health.
Prognosis : Itself is not a fatal disease, but it does get worse with time. The average life expectancy of a Parkinson’s disease patient is generally the same as for people who do not have the disease. However, in the late stages of the disease, Parkinson’s disease may cause complications such as choking, pneumonia, and falls that can lead to death.
Stages of Parkinson’s Disease ;
Stage one Symptoms on one side of the body only.
Stage two Symptoms on both sides of the body. No impairment of balance.
Stage three Balance impairment. Mild to moderate disease. Physically independent.
Stage four Severe disability, but still able to walk or stand unassisted.
Stage five Wheelchair-bound or bedridden unless assisted. 
SuJok’s energy concepts define that Parkinson’s disease wherein a deformation starts, all the joints in coldness energy which is very much strong, and causing the nervous system responsible for it. If according to an individual’s constitution axial relations – there is an excess of wind, humidity and coldness and deficient of heat, hotness and dryness then there may take longer time to have positive results. 
 As Acupuncture, 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 Parkinson disease. Or at least the remission of the disease can be achieved and medicament’s therapy simultaneously can be reduced or eliminated altogether.  The course of treatment should definitely be uneventful, if taken.
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 the hands /foot, chosen for overall well-being with the objective of increasing circulation of the blood and vital energy.
