SYNCOPE


SYNCOPE
Syncope is manifested by sudden fainting, pallor, cold limbs and loss of consciousness, which are often resulted from emotional excitement, fright or debilitation and over straining. 
Syncope of deficiency vital energy is often caused by general deficiency of the primary energy and failure to ascending due to over strain or grief and fright, exhaustion of energy after profuse bleeding.
Main manifestations ; feeble breathing with mouth agape, spontaneous sweating, pallor, cold limbs, deep and thready pulse. Resulting, analysis could be; dizziness, vertigo, loss of consciousness, feeble breathing are all with sudden perversion of its flow of energy, sinking of energy in the spleen and stomach and failure of the clear yang in ascending. Cold limbs are caused by failure of yang energy to reach there. Weakness of primary energy and disabilities of vital energy in controlling the pores are shown in spontaneous sweating and mouth agape. Deep thready pulse also suggests deficiency of energy. A simple faint is one that occurs in an otherwise healthy person. One cause is a sudden increase in activity of the agus-tenth cranial nerve which runs from the brain to the heart and other organs  and is one of the main controllers of the heart’s action. The vagus overactivity causes the heartbeat to slow down to about half its normal rate resulting in a sudden fall in blood pressure. The temporary drop in blood supply to the brain causes dizziness and a need to lie down. The person rapidly becomes pale, sweaty and nauseated and may quickly lose consciousness.
BUT, Syncope of excess vital energy is mainly due to emotional disturbances, such as anger, fear and fright leading to deranged flow of energy, which rushes upwards to the heart and chest, blocking the windpipe and disturbing the mind, or due to up surging of liver yang followed by perversion of blood flow after a fit of anger, leading to disturbance of the mind and resulting in loss of consciousness.

Main manifestations; coarse breathing, rigid limbs, clenched jaws, deep and excess type pulse. Resulting, analysis could be; perversion of energy after a fit of anger makes qi activity impeded and blood rushing upward together with qi to disturb the mind and hence sudden collapse, loss of consciousness, clenched jaws and rigid limbs.  Obstruction of energy in the lungs gives rise to coarse breathing. Deep and excess type pulse is a sign of excess syndrome. Vagus overactivity may be triggered by the psyche in response to such things as alarming or emotionally disturbing sights, nasty smells, overwhelming fear.
Syncope manifested by sudden loss of consciousness should be distinguished from wind stroke and epilepsy.  Wind stroke; loss of consciousness is complicated by hemiplegia and deviated mouth, usually, there are sequelae after restoration to consciousness.  Epilepsy; loss of consciousness is accompanied by convulsions, expectoration of frothy saliva or yelling, when the consciousness is regained the patient becomes as normal as usual.  This condition includes simple fainting, postural hypo-tension, hypoglycemia, hysteria etc.  If there is deficiency syndrome, one has to promote tonifying direction or if there is excess syndrome, energy to be in sedating direction so that it may regulate the flow of energy.
As Brain cells begin to die if they are deprived of oxygen for three to five minutes.  The brain requires about 20 percent of the body’s oxygen supply though it makes up only about 2 percent of a person’s total body weight.
SuJok  ‘ACUPUNCTURE’ 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 vital energy, ones life will be healthy in all its phases, be it BODY. MIND. EMOTIONS!  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.  An important aspect of Su Jok therapy is that it allows to take into account individual characteristics of the patient manifested in her energy constitution. This brings about an effective action on the very origin of disease.
The beauty of acupuncture is that each treatment is catered to the needs of an individual patient. Acupuncture energy concept on palm will be chosen for overall well-being with the objective of increasing circulation of the blood and vital energy as it may be required even after being in consciousness state so that there is no recurrence of the episodes.

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.

PAIN


PAIN
An unpleasant localised sensation that can range from mild discomfort to agony. Pain results from stimulation of special sensory nerve receptors in the skin or within the body by tissue injury or disease, or by stretching or spasm of muscle. The sensation of pain has the important role of drawing attention to the fact that something is wrong, forcing the sufferer to look for and correct the cause. Usually the site nature and intensity of pain give an indication of its cause and importance. The perception of pain varies both between individuals and in the same person at different times. Referred pain is felt in areas other than the damaged part of the body , for example in the arm during a heart attack. Phantom pain feels as if it comes from a limb or part that has been amputated because that  is the way the brain interprets impulses from nerves in the stump. 
Acupuncture for Pain – Physical pain is a common occurrence for many.  People use acupuncture for various types of pain. Back pain is the most commonly reported use, followed by joint pain, neck pain, and headache. Acupuncture is being studied for its efficacy in alleviating many kinds of pain. There are promising findings in some conditions, such as chronic low-back pain and osteoarthritis of the knee.
Pain is a feeling triggered in the nervous system. It may be sharp or dull, off-and-on or steady, localized (such as back pain) or all over (such as muscle aches from the flu). Sometimes, pain alerts us to injuries and illnesses that need attention. Although pain usually goes away once the underlying problem is addressed, it can last for weeks, months, or even years. Chronic pain may be due to an ongoing condition (such as arthritis) or to abnormal activity in pain-sensing regions of the brain, or the cause may not be known.  Acupuncture practitioners stimulate specific points on the body—most often by inserting thin needles through the skin. In traditional Chinese medicine theory, this regulates the flow of qi (vital energy) along pathways known as meridians. But in SUJOK acupuncture stimulation or micro needling is only on the miniature form of hands or feets.
A analysis of acupuncture data found that pain or musculoskeletal complaints accounted top. Back pain was the most common, followed by joint pain, neck pain, severe headache/migraine, and recurring pain.  Acupuncture has been studied for a wide range of pain conditions, such as postoperative dental pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, headache, low-back pain, menstrual cramps, myofascial pain, osteoarthritis, and tennis elbow. Overall, it can be very effective in controlling the pain syndrome.
Acupuncture has also been studied for a variety of other pain conditions, including arm and shoulder pain, pregnancy-related pelvic and back pain, and temporomandibular joint (jaw) dysfunction.
PAIN may be specified as;  
Neuropathic: Pain caused by damage to or malfunction of the nerves themselves. The peripheral nerve system includes all the nerves that lead to and from the spinal cord. These nerves transmit pain signals to the brain. If they are injured, neuropathic pain may develop — pain caused by injury to the nerves themselves. The other term peripheral neuropathy, which is another way to say neuropathic pain since it is damage to the peripheral nerve system. Damage to the central nervous system can also trigger neuropathic pain. Chronic neuropathic pain can be especially challenging to treat because it can be difficult to pinpoint where and how the nerves are damaged.
Nociceptive: Nociceptors are the receptors in the nervous system that get activated when there’s an injury. If there isn’t an injury from outside the nervous system, the nociceptors aren’t active. Nociceptive pain, then, is pain caused by an injury to something other than the nerves. In chronic pain, though, the nociceptors may still be sending pain messages long after the original injury has healed. The various types of chronic nociceptive pain are:
somatic – Soma means “body,” so somatic pain comes from injuries to the outer body—skin, muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, bones, etc. It’s generally easy to identify where somatic pain comes from, and the pain can be sharp or throbbing (depends on what part of body is injured).
Bone pain is a somatic pain. Bones can ache. If the bones have been weakened by another condition, such as cancer or osteoporosis, then you can have a very achy and very intense dull pain. Bone pain can also be acute: if break in a bone, for example, that is acute pain. If the bone heals but still have a throbbing pain (it may be constant or it may come and go), that can be considered chronic bone pain. Muscle pain is a somatic pain. Chronic muscle pain is more than a strained muscle, means muscles may have a chronic muscle spasm that causes them to be tense. This form of muscle overload can cause long-lasting pain, especially in the back. Muscle pain can also develop as part of certain chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia.
visceral – viscera are internal organs—specifically those contained in abdomen and chest cavity. The stomach is an example of a visceral organ. Not every organ has nociceptors, so not every internal organ can send pain messages if it’s been injured (the lungs, for example, don’t have nociceptors).
However, if an injure to organ that has nociceptors, you will probably feel a deep, achy pain, and it will be hard to pinpoint where the pain is coming from. Visceral pain can also have referred pain. That means that the brain can’t distinguish the pain from the organ from pain from another part of body. For example, if having kidney problem, then low back may be painful.
Figuring out, chronic pain may be a difficult process, especially since many types of chronic pain may not come from any noticeable injury or disease. Also, since pain is such a subjective experience.
Chronic pain falls into a couple of broad categories such as : neuropathic pain: Pain caused by damage to or malfunction of the nerves themselves. nociceptive pain: Nociceptors are the receptors in the nervous system that get activated when there’s an injury. If there isn’t an injury from outside the nervous system, the nociceptors aren’t active. Nociceptive pain, then, is pain caused by an injury to something other than the nerves. In chronic pain, though, the nociceptors may still be sending pain messages long after the original injury has healed.
Pain is a very subjective experience, though, so we can’t say something as categorical as “All chronic pain patients will feel this way.” It is possible to say that chronic pain takes on many forms. It can be: throbbing, aching, shooting, electric, burning, sharp, feeling stiff, feeling tight, feeling sore. It can lead to other problems, especially social and emotional ones. Chronic pain may: lead to sleeplessness, drain you of energy, lead to depression, make you not want to do activities you typically enjoy, weaken your immune system because so much of your body’s energy is spent dealing with the pain.  A lot of these other problems build off each other, so you may hear the phrase “vicious cycle” when talking about chronic pain. For example: The pain makes it difficult to sleep at night, so you’re excessively tired the next day. You don’t want to go to work—or do anything else—because you’re so tired. Because you aren’t as active, you lose self-esteem and start to withdraw even more from your social life.  A cycle like that doesn’t have to control your life, though.
Other common chronic back pain causes are :
Trauma or injury.
Poor posture.
Obesity – excess weight puts excess pressure and stress on the spine and can wear out faster or simply not work as well, perhaps leading to chronic pain.
Aging – various parts of the spinal anatomy and other joints can wear out over time (a process called degeneration, there’s no guarantee that an aging spine will be painful, though: it all depends on how the degeneration process affects it.
Nerve damage,an example, a spinal nerve root can be pinched by a herniated disc, causing pain. Even after treating the herniated disc, the pain may persist because of nerve damage. Nerves can be injured by arachnoid’s (inflammation of a tissue that protects the nerve roots),
Arthritis (again, the inflammation can compress the nerve), and
diabetes, cancer, lyme disease, an infection, and more. Nerves can have trouble relaying the appropriate message if they’ve been damaged.
SuJok acupuncture is a new stage in the development of Oriental medicine. Highly effective for treatment, easy and accessible to learn, simple to apply, Su Jok methods have attracted much attention to and interest in this system all the phases of world.  One of the important features of this system- That is, the fast-coming effect of the method. SuJok therapy extremely quickly arrests pain syndromes of various etiology. Moreover, there has been gathered a considerable bulk of observations that the SuJok method quickly copes with critical states – shocks, preinfarctions, preinsults. Under such extreme conditions, needling was not always used. It was enough to massage correspondence points for a victim to become conscious or to remove intolerable pain.  Since the Su Jok method has a fast effect, the rate of pain-killing was studied during the treatment session. Within different time periods since the beginning of the session, the patient assessed the percentage of decrease of his pain sensations as compared with the initial state which was accepted as 100%.  A fast and effective removal of the pain syndrome makes the treatment period shorter and the patients cure quicker.
The course of treatment is definitely uneventful. ONE MUST OPT for it, as there is no side effect at all and care & cure effect is on miniature form of hands.

ANOXIA


ANOXIA  
ANOXIA an-(without) + -ox- (oxygen) + -ia == the state of being without oxygen> is the lack of a normal supply of oxygen<a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas that makes up about 20% of the air we breathe (and at least half the weight of the entire solid crust of the earth) and which combines with most of the other elements to form oxides>. Oxygen is essential to human, animal and plant life.  The chemical symbol for the element oxygen is O. As a medicinal gas, oxygen contains not less than 99.0% by volume of O2. to body tissues or inability of the tissues to use the oxygen or sometimes used loosely as a synonym for hypoxia.  It is also called hypoxia<a subnormal concentration of oxygen. By contrast with normoxia <norm- (normal) + -ox- (oxygen) + -ia = a normal oxygen state> and anoxia <the absence or near absence of oxygen>. From hyp- (below) + -ox- (oxygen) + -ia>.  Anoxic anoxia occurs when blood flowing through the lungs does not pick up enough oxygen.  This can happen when there is a reduced amount of oxygen in the air.  The blood also can fail to pick up sufficient oxygen because of defects in the lungs or because of obstruction of the air passages involved in breathing.  Rapid, deep breathing is a common symptom of anoxic anoxia.  The condition is often accompanied by cyanosis, a bluish coloration of the skin.  Severe cases may lead to loss of consciousness and even death. 
Anaemic anoxia occurs when blood cannot carry its normal load of oxygen.  This happens when the blood has insufficient amounts of haemoglobin (the substance that transports oxygen in the blood) or when haemoglobin is altered by carbon monoxide or other poisons.  Stagnant anoxia develops when the blood flows so slowly that it loses most of its oxygen before completing its course through a tissue.  Part of the tissue thus receives little or no oxygen.  An example of stagnant anoxia occurs during cold temperatures when blood vessels under the fingernails and in the lips constrict, causing cyanosis in those body parts.  Histotoxic anoxia is caused by poisons that make the tissues incapable of using the oxygen supplied.  Cyanide is such a poison.
BUT with ACUPUNCTURE SuJok, the energy concept one may overcome the symptoms of anoxia. It is the coldness energy which is affecting. Dominant energy of coldness with oxygen controlling functional organ lungs can be tackle to over come the such problem. If looking for speedy total effectiveness, one must opt for SuJok acupuncture.  The course of treatment is definitely effective.  Acupuncture’s energy concept of treatment is only on the palm, specially chosen for overall well being with the objective of increasing circulation of the blood and vital energy.

IMMUNE


IMMUNE
Our body is equipped with many aids to survival.  Reflex responses help us to escape when we sense danger; sneezing, coughing and vomiting can get rid of harmful matter; blood clotting prevents haemorrhage; and instinctive drives keep us fed, watered, and sheltered from extremes of heat and cold.  The sexual drive ensures the survival of our species. Most ingenious of all are our defences against infection.
Frontline defences ; The first barriers against invaders are healthy,unbroken skin and lining membranes.  It plays a major role in preventing disease by protecting all the organs, blood vessels, and the lymph system. Without the skin, bacteria and viruses could easily enter the blood system. The skin also houses many lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are a part of the lymph system, a network of vessels,which transport white blood cells, or phagocytes, throughout the body to combat disease.  The tough surface of skin keeps most germs out. Lining membranes are bathed by secretions such as tears and saliva, which wash away bacteria and kill some of them. Mucus coated hairs in the nose filter inhaled air, trapping microbes and dust.  Mucus in the bronchi does a similar job, and hair like projections called cilia on the surface of their lining cells sweep the mucus towards the throat to be swallowed or coughed up. Mucous membranes are cells that line all openings of the body. When dust particles enter the body, they get caught in the mucous membranes and are then digested. Nose hair is the body’s natural air filtration system. Nose hairs capture dust particles keeping them from accumulating in the lungs. A sneeze is the body’s way of ridding itself of accumulated dust particles. Mucous membranes produce a large variety of protective chemicals, which serve to either, destroy the pathogen, or to trigger a stronger immune response. The functions of the protective chemicals are, the pH of skin secretions inhibits the bacterial growth. Skin secretions produce sebum, which contains chemicals, which are toxic to bacteria. The stomach mucosa secretes hydrochloric acid (HCL) as well as other protein digesting enzymes. Both of these substances, hydrochloric acid as well as protein digesting enzymes destroy pathogens. Mucous proves to “stick” microscopic organisms, which may have entered the respiratory and digestive passageways. Lacriminal fluid and saliva contain lysozyme, a type of enzyme which is known to destroy bacteria.  Acid and enzymes in stomach secretions kill many micro organisms and the normal acidity of the vagina prevents excessive growth of unwanted bacteria.
Deeper defences ; If germs do penetrate our outer defences, a second force of defenders awaits them. Antibodies in the blood and tissues may destroy them, and white blood cells join the battle. First to arrive are the granulocytes, natural germs-killers. Then come the monocytes, which become macrophages able to gobble up bacteria and foreign matter. A macrophage that has digested disease causing agents sends fragments of their proteins to its surface membrane to act as antigens that can evoke an immune response.
The immune response ; This is the most specific defence against infection. Its two major weapons are antibody production and cell mediated immunity, tasks of B and T lymphocytes respectively. B lymphocytes develop in bone marrow where each is primed to make a specific antibody. When a germ enters the body, some B cells recognise and attach to its antigen, which makes the cell divide and produce many identical offspring cells.  After millions of copies have been made, most B cells stop dividing and become plasma cells that produce the anitbody. Some activated B cells continue to divide, to ensure a supply for maintaining long term immunity.
T lymphocytes mature in the thymus where they learn to distinguish self from non self.  Killer T cells lock with a cell that has been invaded by viruses and release chemicals that destroy it. Helper T cells attach to specific antigens and release lymphokines which travel in plasma. Some lymphokines can protect cells from virus invasion;others summon more T cells, macrophages and granulocytes to the attack.  Suppressor T cells can slow down parts of the immune response.
The immune response operates against not only microorgannisms but also other foreign non self matter within the body, such as allergens, transplanted tissues and cancer cells.  Occasionally the immune system mistenly identifies a body protein as non-self. The result is autoimmune disease in which antibodies are formed against one or more of the bodys own tissues.
The lymphatic system ;  is made up of T cells, B cells, antibodies, and platelets. When the skin is scratched, platelets travel to the wound. They then try to mend the wound, and stop the bleeding. The T cells are the cells that attack all diseases that enter the body. B cells are the cells that manufacture antibodies. Antibodies are proteins that isolate pathogens, foreign substances, so that T cells can attack and destroy it.  Lymph is watery fluid that contains dissolved substances and particles such as germs or fragments of dead cells. When lymph accumulates between cells and its pressure rises, it is pushed through valves in the walls of tiny blind-ended lymphatic capillaries and enters the lymph stream, joining larger lymphatic vessels that transport lymph to the lymph nodes, commonly called lymph glands, where it is filtered and comes into contact with lymphocytes. Further lymphatic vessels carry filtered lymph from the nodes to the thoracic and other lymph ducts that drain into large veins near the heart.  Sentinel lymph nodes, these clusters of nodes located in the neck, armpits, groins, pelvis and abdomen filter lymph from major body parts before it drains into the bloodstream.  Under the lymph nodes capsule is a fine network lined with macrophages. Within the network are strands and nodules of denser lymphoid tissue, where lymphocytes are produced and stored. Valves within lymphatic vessels prevent backflow.
The spleen ; About the size of a clenched fist, the spleen nestles under the diaphragm behind the lower left ribs. With a structure similar to that of lymph nodes, the spleen decontaminates blood by filtering it through a macrophage lined network ‘red pulp’ dotted with paler nodules of lymphoid tissue ‘white pulp’, which also surrounds the small arteries. The red pulp cleanses blood of dead organisms, worn out blood cells and other debris, and the spleen’s lymphocytes attack living microbes and other non self material.
 In today’s world there are virtually millions of diseases. Viruses or bacteria cause most diseases. Viruses are considered non-living parasites,which enter healthy cells,release their own DNA and cause the healthy cell to begin manufacturing other virus bodies. Since viruses are not alive, antibiotics cannot kill them; therefore, most viruses have no cure. When a virus enters the body, antibodies are sent to isolate the virus, then B cells arrive to infiltrate and finally kill the virus.  Bacteria on the other hand are a living parasite. It performs the same functions as a virus, but it is considered a living parasite. Since bacteria are living, antibiotics can be used to kill it. Bacteria are considered deadly due to the fact that it can reproduce very quickly.
The human body can be infected by a variety of different foreign substances. These include infections as deadly as a virus, or as common as  a bacterially infected wound.  Once a human is infected with anything foreign the immune system immediately begins fighting the foreign substance.  However the immune system cannot usually kill the entire foreign cells, a few often survive.  However this number is so few a person can hardly claim to be sick or infected.  Although that person is now a carrier.  A carrier is some one who is infected, or has some of a particular foreign substance in him, yet shows no symptoms.  That person could pass on the pathogen or virus without even realizing it.  Viral infection occurs when a virus enters a host, in this case a human host, and begins to use the host cells to replicate.  The virus will attach it self to a host cell and inject its viral DNA into it.  The viral DNA quickly takes over the healthy host DNA and virus replication begins.  If the virus is not stopped it will take over all the host cells.   Bacterial infection occurs as a pathogen enters a human.  The pathogen does not use the human cells as a host as the virus does, but it begins to kill them.  A bacterial infection is easier to treat because the bacteria can be killed.  However for a virus to be killed the host cells must be killed also.
Acupuncture<Onnuri Medicine>, 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 bodys immune function. It has also helped many people who were not successfully treated through conventional western medicine.  Several conditions can be dramatically improved or remedied in full including to enhance the immune system of the body.  The beauty of acupuncture is that each treatment is catered to the needs of an individual patient. Acupuncture, the energy concept on palm will be chosen for overall well being with the objective of increasing circulation of the blood and vital energy. One must opt for ACUPUNCTURE to have total effectivness. The course of treatment is defenietly uneventful.

SWINE FLU


ImmuneSWINE FLU
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC) has determined that the H1N1(swine flu) virus that has been causing illness in people is contagious and is spreading from human to human.  Severe illness (pneumonia and respiratory failure) and deaths have been reported with swine flu (H1N1) infection in people.  Swine flu is a new influenza virus causing illness in people. Human-to-human infection with the H1N1 flu virus likely occurs the same way as seasonal flu, when an infected person coughs or sneezes into air that others breathe in.
 Symptoms ;
 Swine flu is generally mild to moderate in its severity in humans, and is commonly characterized by ;
 Cough,
 Fever,
 Fatigue, lethargy,
 Lack of appetite,
 Headache,
 Sore throat,
 Runny nose,
 Muscle aches,
 Nausea,
 Stomach ache, and diarrhea may also occur. 
 One should get urgent medical attention if having fast breathing or trouble breathing or shortness of breath, bluish or gray skin color, are not drinking enough fluid.
 One should limit the contact with others to avoid spreading infections (including influenza and other respiratory illnesses).
 Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth normally germs spread that way.
 Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
 Besides, the absolute vapour pressure in the air is related to the ability of the virus to survive and be transmitted between people. So the drier the air the easier it is for the virus to survive and be transmitted.”  Low humidity also tends to dry out and irritate your nose, which can make you more susceptible to infections transferred via fingers and inanimate objects.
 One may follow the ways to prevent the spread of illness by taking everyday actions to stay healthy. 
 Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
 Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
 Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze.
 Alcohol-based hands cleaners are also effective.
 Avoid touching your face. Touching your mouth, nose and eyes; can introduce flu virus into your system. Germs spread that way.
 Stay home if you get sick.
 Follow public health advice regarding school closures, avoiding crowds and other social distancing measures. These measures will continue to be important after a novel H1N1 vaccine is available because they can prevent the spread of other viruses that cause respiratory infections.  The “H” stands for haemaglutinin and the ‘N” stands for neuraminidase. These are changeable structures in the virus that interact with the immune system. In any case if IMMUNITY is week, there are more chances to attack the virus.
 It is aimed and observations at the clinical efficacy of non-invasive methods of SuJok particularly Acupuncture therapy in treatment, rehabilitation and enhancement of resistance of frequently ill person, with chronic internal foci of infection and recurrent respiratory diseases, to external infections. When evaluating the energy state common characteristics were found that allowed to apply some universal approaches to treatment of a group of frequently ill person, in most of the people the general energy state was low and affected organs were characterized by energy deficiency. The greatest imbalance was found in the corporal Yin meridian system and most often the dominating energy was coldness (fear).
 Acupuncture (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.  Acupuncture 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 the existing.
 I personally feels if one has a strong IMMUNITY, it can not affect the person. AND, Acupuncture may enhance the immunity in a effective way including the other symptoms. The treatment concept is only on the palms.
 Treatment ;
 Enhance immunity. It can be through marking red color with permanent marker pen on the palm at the mount below thumb, as per picture.
 Index finger middle joint to mark with red color horizontally<in circle>. 
 According to energy concept of SuJok, Heat chakra is projected, its centre is in the middle of the thumb’s proximal phalanx’s.  It will also keep the immunity stronger. One should mark with red color permanent marker pen as shown in picture.
 Enhancement of body’s resistance to infections(stimulate of the thymus, adrenal glands and the pituitary gland),
 Elimination of symptoms of inflammation through spleen,
 Improvement of microcirculation and oxidation process in tissues,
 Normalisation of cortico subcortical links,
 Desensitisation,
 Increase of the general tonus and recovery of impaired psycho emotional state.

ASTHMA


ASTHMA
• Asthma is a common illness characterized by repeated attacks of paroxysmal dyspnea with wheezing,  condition making it the most common chronic childhood disease to date. During an asthma attack, the lung’s airways (bronchioles)become inflamed, contract and become lined with excessive amounts of mucous—causing a restriction of airflow and making it very difficult to breathe. These attacks often triggered by pollution or some environmental irritant like cigarette smoke, household cleaning agents, or other toxins. Other common triggers include a change in air temperature or humidity ; stress, allergies, and physical exertion.  If there is a history of hives, eczema or skin-related allergies are a common link between skin reactions and chronic asthma.   
 Symptoms of asthma generally include :
 Tightness.
 Pain or pressure felt in the chest.
 Chronic cold, persistent cough, especially at night or in the early mornings, itchness in the throat.
 Phlegmatic noise in throat.
 Blue lips, fingers. 
 An audible ‘wheezing’ sound is characteristic of asthma,especially when exhaling.
 Shortness and difficult of breath.
 Restlessness.
 Causes : Combination of genetic and environmental factors, has a number of triggers which often include :
 Allergies to pollen, grass, certain foods, house dust mites, pets or any other environmental allergens.
 Air pollution or irritants including car and factory emissions.
 Smoke.
 A number of perfumed products including deodorants,chemical detergents,fabric softeners and incense.
 Upper respiratory infections colds,flu and sinusitis.
 Reflux.
 Physical exertion or exercise.
 Sudden changes in air temperature or humidity.
 Cold air.
 Stress, anxiety and other strong emotions.
 Preservatives.
 The causative factors are varied from the exogenous pathogenic factors to weakened body resistance. Asthma due to exogenous pathogenic factors is of excess type, and that due to weakened body resistance is of deficiency type.
 Excess type :
 Wind-cold; it denotes due to invasion of wind cold, which impairs the smooth flow of the lung vital, injures the skin and hair, and makes pores closed. Lungs vital fails to disperse and descend, leading to cough.
 Main manifestations : cough with thin sputum, rapid breathing, accompanied by chills, fever, headache and anhidrosis, absense of thirst, white tongue coating.  Lungs main function is of respiration and is associated with the skin and hair, which are first attacked by wind cold in invasive procedure.   

Phlegm-heat type : It refers due to failure of the spleen in transformation and transportation, resulting in production of phlegm from the accumulated dampness. Long standing tetention of phlegm turns into heat.  When phlegm heat stays in the lung, the lung qital is stagnated and the normal activity of the lung is impaired. Failure of lung vital in descending function results in asthma.
 Main manifestations : Rapid and short breathing, strong and coarse voice, cough with thick yellow sputum. When phlegm stays in the lung, sensation of chest stuffiness appears. Fever, restlessness and dryness of mouth are due to presence of heat. Thick yellow or sticky coating are the signs of phlegm heat.
 Deficiency type :
 Lung – Prolonged and protracted cough may weaken and injure lung vital. Deficiency may create shortness of breath and dyspnea.
 Main manifestations : Short and rapid breathing, feeble voice, weak and low sound of coughing, sweating on exertion, pale tongue, pulse of deficiency type.
 Kidney – Overwork and sexual indulgence cn injure the kidney. It can weakens the body resistance and damages the essential energy, failure to receive energy may create causative factor to rise asthma.
 Main manifestations : Dyspnea on eertion after longstanding asthma, severe wheezing, indrawing of the soft tissues of the neck, short breath, lassitude and weakness, sweating, cold limbs, pale tongue. Long standing asthma affects the kidney which is the source of energy. When it is in lowered functioning fails to receive energy and therefore dyspena on exertion, severe wheezing and short breath appear. Exhausted kidney develop emaciation and lassitude, weakness and sweating. To over come the asthmatic symptoms one has to do the followings ;
 Exercise regularly.  Regular, gentle exercise will help strengthen over-all lung and heart functioning. If you are unfit, start off slowly, gradually increasing activity as the fitness levels increase.
 Include Vitamin C, B6 and magnesium, as a lack of these nutrients, implicated in a number of inflammatory conditions,including asthma.
 Avoid sulfites and preservatives as these tend to trigger asthmatic reactions.
 Avoid common irritants such as spray deodorants, perfumed cleaning agents, and cigarette smoke, wherever possible.
 Reduce dust and pollen in the household. During pollen season, try keeping the windows closed and opt for an air conditioner instead. Dust can be reduced by replacing carpets with tiles or wooden floors, buying washable curtains and blinds, and vacuuming upholstered furniture and mattresses regularly.
 Wear a scarf over nose and mouth if have to go out in cold air and avoid exercising in cold air.
 Treat colds and flu as soon as they become evident.
 If stress and anxiety are triggers, learn to manage with relaxation such as meditation, deep breathing exercises.
