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.

Blisters


BLISTERS

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
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. 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 including Lupus.
The beauty of acupuncture ‘SuJok’ is that each treatment is catered to the needs of an individual patient. Acupunctures energy concept on the hand is chosen for overall well being with the objective of increasing circulation of the blood and vital energy.
Undoubtedly, one may get positive results in Lupus, through the energy concept of acupuncture ‘SuJok’.

JAUNDICE


Jaundice   
An excess of bilirubin in blood can produce jaundice, is a yellowish discoloration of skin, tissues and sclera is caused by high levels in blood of the chemical bilirubin.  It results from an increased amount of bilirubin, a reddish-yellow pigment in blood, when bilirubin level is mildly elevated, they are yellowish and they tend to be brown when bilirubin level is high.  Jaundice is mainly manifested by yellow discoloration of the sclera, skin, urine, normally resulted from the dampness in the spleen and heat in the stomach,leading to abnormal circulation of the bile which spreads to the skin surface. It is further divided into Yang jaundice and Yin jaundice according to its nature.
Bilirubin is formed by the breakdown of haemoglobin, a pigment in red blood cells.  The liver removes bilirubin from the blood stream and discharges it in the bile. The chemical that remains in the blood after the iron is removed becomes bilirubin.  Thus, jaundice results from either excessive production of bilirubin or reduced discharge of bile.  Jaundice is not a disease but a symptom of various diseases. 
Hemolytic jaundice results from an increased breakdown of red blood cells, which causes a greater concentration of bilirubin in the blood. Hepatocellular jaundice occurs when the liver is diseased, as in hepatitis, so that it cannot secrete enough bile. Mainly Bilirubin collects in the body, with the result jaundice develop.  Obstructive jaundice is caused by the blocking of the bile ducts.  Gallstones may also cause such a blockage. Many babies are born with physiologic jaundice, which occurs if the body cannot process all the bilirubin it produces.  In most cases, it disappears within two weeks after birth.
Bile a fluid secreted by liver helps the body digest and absorb fatty foods.  It also rids the body of certain waste products.  The liver secretes bile continuously, producing about 1 litre per day.  Bile flows from the liver into a tube called the hepatic duct. It connects with the common bile duct, which leads to the small intestine.  Except after meal most of the bile does not proceed directly to intestine.  Rather, it enters in gall bladder, a pouch attached to the common bile duct.  There, bile is stored and concentrated until needed. It contains various waste products that eventually become part of the faeces (solid body wastes).  One of these waste products, bilirubin, is formed from breakdown of red blood cells.  Bilirubin gives bile its colour, which ranges from brown to greenish-yellow.  Other waste matter in the bile includes excess cholesterol and certain poisons that the liver removes from the bloodstream.
The seasonal and epidemic factors accumulate in the spleen and stomach, leading to internal formation and collection of damp heat. Dampness after mixed with heat is apt to penetrate deeper, while heat mixed with dampness is apt to get more exuberant. The liver and gallbladder are steamed by the heat in the spleen and stomach, leading to overflow of the bile to the skin surface, thus jaundice appears.
Irregular diet injures the spleen and stomach, causing disturbance in transportation and transformation and internal formation of dampness, which transforms into heat. Damp heat stains the skin yellow.
Differentiation
YANG Jaundice ; Main manifestations: Lustrous yellow skin and sclera, fever, thirst, scanty dark yellow urine, heaviness of the body, fullness in the abdomen, stuffiness of the chest, nausea, yellow sticky tongue coating, string taut, rapid pulse. If the spleen yang fails to resolve the dampness, the normal distribution of bile is impaired, affecting the spleen, soaking into the muscles, and spreading to the skin which turns yellow as if it were smoked.
Basically, steaming of the damp heat makes the bile spread to the skin surface. Heat being a yang factor, makes the yellow discoloration of the skin lustrous. Fever, thirst, scanty dark yellow urine are due to excessive damp heat, which damages the body fluid and disturbs the activity of the bladder.
YIN Jaundice ; Main manifestations: Sallow skin, heaviness of the body, weakness, loss of appetite, epigastric stuffiness, lassitude, aversion to cold, absence of thirst, pale tongue, thick, white tongue coating, deep slow pulse. Yin jaundice can also result from an improperly treated yang jaundice which leads to injury of the yang qi, hypo-activity of the spleen yang, and internal collection of cold dampness.
Basically, the stagnation of cold dampness in the spleen and stomach impedes the distribution of yang qi, leading to overflow of the bile, thus the skin is sallow. In case the dampness stays in the spleen, the spleen yang is hypo-active and the transporting and transforming function is impaired, therefore heaviness in the body, loss of appetite and epigastric stuffiness occurs. 
SuJok 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 been observed many people who were not successfully treated through conventional western medicine.  Several conditions can be dramatically improved or remedied in full including Jaundice.
While giving treatment through SuJok ACUPUNCTURE, one can opt for the positive effectiveness treatment aiming sedating Biliary colic Heart which is already in excess. Total effectiveness is possible.

VULVITIS


VULVITIS
The vagina is an elastic, yet muscular canal, upper part of the vagina connects to the cervix, which opens into the uterus, and the lower part opens to the outside of the body. It lies between the urethra, which connects to the bladder and the rectum.
During sexual intercourse, the vagina lengthens, widens and engorges with blood as it prepares to accept the penis. Additionally, the vagina serves as a passageway for cervical mucus, menstrual fluid and other secretions out of the body. During childbirth, the baby is pushed from the uterus out of the body, also through the vaginal canal.
Vulvitis is inflammation of the skin of the vulva, external genitals of the female which causes swelling, soreness, itching, redness and sometimes weeping. Small painful, splits and ulcers may also develop in the inflamed skin, causing it to sting when wet by washing or urine. Itching of the external genitals is particularly miserable on scratching these parts. It is also more likely to be harmful, as on scratching, the worse things become.
CAUSES ; Vulvitis itch may be caused by local infection, allergy, physical or chemical injury or lack of oestrogen. Or it may be part of generalised skin inflammations such as eczema and HIVS. Itch due to thrush and trichomoniasis is often associated with vaginitis inflammation of the vaginal from these causes. When both vagina and vulva are affected the condition is called vulvo vaginitis. Other infections that may cause vulva itch include public lice, the early and healing stages of genital herpes simplex, and occasionally genital warts. Lack of oestrogen after the menopause can lead to atrophy vulvitis-thinning, drying and inflammation of genital skin which causes relentless itching and makes the vulva skin more susceptible to infection. Allergy should always be suspected when there is no evidence of infection or atrophy. Causes include feminine hygiene products including douches, soap, ingredients, bubble baths, bath salts and oils, laundry detergents, spermicides, condom rubber or lubricants and even the dye from coloured toiled paper. Food and drugs that bring out allergic rashes can also affect genital skin. Tight trousers and sanitary pads may cause vulvitis and itch.
Acupuncture SuJok can help improve the overall health including vulvitis. The remission of the disease can be achieved and medicamentous therapy simultaneously reduced or eliminated altogether.  The course of treatment is definitely uneventful as one may observe the effectiveness from the initial three to four sessions. Moreover, the energy concept of treatment is only on the palms/feet with tiny micro needles<painless>, seeds or even through the palm tree! The treatments support the rebuilding strength and resiliency that is essential for the recovery process. Acupuncture treatments have a calming effect!

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.

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.
