GALL STONES


GALL STONES
Solid bodies that form in the gall bladder from constituents of bile such as cholesterol, bile pigment, mucin and calcium.  Gall stones a small sac found just under the liver. It stores bile made by liver. Bile helps to digest fats. Bile moves from gallbladder to small intestine through tubes called cystic duct and common bile duct. The most common symptom is pain in stomach area or in the upper right part of the belly, under the ribs.The size of gall stones ranges from  grit like to several centimetres in width.  There may be a single stone but more often there are many.
CAUSE: The cause of gall stones, also called cholelithiasis is uncertain. It has been suggested that bile containing more than the usual amount of cholesterol, a normal bile constituent and a smaller than usual amount of bile acid may be likely to lead to stone formation. Production of this type of bile is an inherited tendency, which would explain why gall stones often run in families. Other possible factors include inflammation or infection of gall bladder, increased bile pigment formation and hormonal and other genetic factors.
INCIDENCE: Gall stones  are common in men and women.
PAIN: It may be develop suddenly in center of upper belly and spread to right upper back or shoulder-blade area. It is usually hard to get comfortable; moving around does not make pain go away.  It also prevent from taking normal or deep breaths. Normally it begins at night and be severe enough to wake you and mostly occur after meals. There are many other conditions that cause similar symptoms,including heartburn, pain caused by heart attack, and liver problems. Stomach flu(gastroenteritis) and food poisoning also can cause symptoms similar to gall stones.
Pancreatitis: Pancreatitis is an inflammation of pancreas, which is an organ in the upper abdomen that makes insulin and digestive enzymes. Pancreatitis may cause sudden, severe abdominal pain. It is most commonly caused by excessive use of alcohol or by blockage of tube(duct) that leads from pancreas to beginning of small intestine(duodenum),usually by a gall stone. Other causes include an infection,injury, or certain medicines. It may develop suddenly(acute),or it may be a long-term,recurring(chronic) problem, but may develop complications such as bleeding,infection,or organ failure may develop. The pancreas is an organ in upper belly, behind stomach and close to spine. It makes digestive enzymes that body uses to break down and process food. The pancreas also makes insulin, hormone that regulates sugar (glucose) in the blood.
SYMPTOMS: The most common symptoms are bouts of moderate upper abdominal pain or in upper right part of belly, sometimes brought on by a fatty meal. Pain may spread to right upper back or shoulder-blade area. Sometimes pain is more severe. It may be steady, or it may come and go. Or it may get worse even after eating something heavy.  When gall stones keep blocking bile duct,there is a pain with fever and chills, or the skin or whites of your eyes may turn yellow. Having stones in bile duct increases the chance of having swollen pancreas (pancreatitis). These symptoms may also be a sign of an infected gallbladder. A stone wedged in the ducts that drain the gall bladder causes the agonising pain of biliary COLIC.  If the stone blocks the common bile duct which drains bile from both the liver and gall bladder there may be jaundice as well as colic. A stone below the junction of the common bile duct and the pancreatic duct can, in addition cause acute PANCREATITIS.  However many people with gall stones have no symptoms, the stones may be discovered by chance if abdominal x-ray or ultrasound is performed for other reasons.  Symptoms of Gallbladder disease simultaneously be of steady, severe pain in the upper abdomen that increases rapidly.  pain in the back between the shoulder blades. pain under the right shoulder. nausea or vomiting abdominal bloating recurring intolerance of fatty foods colic belching gas indigestion.
The current belief is that cholesterol stones are the result of bile that is made of too much cholesterol or bilirubin and not enough bile salts. Cholesterol stones may also form when the gallbladder fails to properly empty during the digestive process. But those who develop pigment stones most often include people who have cirrhosis of the liver, biliary tract infections, and hereditary blood disorders that include sickle-cell anemia. These are all conditions that lead to the formation of too much bilirubin.
TREATMENT: Surgery to remove the gall bladder(cholecystectomy) is most commonly advised if opt through the medicinal concept. But if opting through alternative treatment particularly SuJok acupuncture, one may get positive effective results.  The beauty of acupuncture is that each treatment is catered to the needs of an individual patient.  SuJok is a component of Onnuri medicine, and involves inserting of very thin, fine, metal needles into the specific ‘correspondence points’ located on the miniature form of hands or foot, along the meridians pathways along which Qi travels,connecting the surface of the body energetically with the internal organs, it’s the energy concept chosen for overall well-being with the objective of increasing circulation of the blood and vital energy. The remission of the disease can be achieved and medicaments therapy simultaneously can be reduced or eliminated altogether.  The course of treatment is definitely uneventful.

STONES


STONES.

 Kidney stones may form when the normal balance of water, salts, minerals, and other substances found in urine changes. Most kidney stones are calcium-type – they form when the calcium levels in urine change. Stones<calculi> that develop in the kidneys, ureters which carry urine from kidneys to bladder or bladder due to percipitation of crystal formation in urine. The formation of urinary stones also called urolithiasis. Mostly, stones are composed of calcium salts while the remainder consist of uric aid, magnesium salts or production of protein breakdown. Stones are more likely to form if there is increased concentration of these substances in urine due either to their increased concentration in blood or decreased urine production. Kidney and ureteric stones may injure the lining membranes around them and cause bleeding or may obstruct outflow from kidney or ureter, causing ureteric colic and if untreated hydronephrosis, distention with urine of one or both kidneys.

Factors that change urine balance include: When water intake not enough. One should try to drink enough water to keep urine clear (about 8 to 12 glasses of water a day). When there is not enough water- the salts, minerals, and other substances in the urine can stick together and form a stone. This is the most common cause of kidney stones. Many medical conditions can affect the normal balance and cause stones to form. Gout is one such example. Also, people who have inflammatory bowel disease or who have had surgery on their intestines may not absorb fat from their intestines in a normal way. This changes the way the intestines process calcium and other minerals, and it may lead to kidney stones. In some cases, a person forms kidney stones because the parathyroid glands produce too much of a hormone, which leads to higher calcium levels and possibly calcium kidney stones. Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) for kidney stones – makes the urine less acidic, which makes uric acid kidney stone formation less likely. BUT, there is a possible increase in risk of forming calcium kidney stones. An increase in the amount of sodium in the blood. Fluid retention(edema), especially in people with high blood pressure, heart failure, or liver disease (cirrhosis) might develop. Kidney stones: Preventing kidney stones through diet If you had kidney stones before, you are more likely to get them again. But by following the eating plan, new kidney stones can be prevented. Drink plenty of water. The most common cause of kidney stones is not drinking enough fluids, especially water. Water helps to wash away the substances in the kidneys that could form stones. You are drinking enough water when your urine is clear or light yellow. If it is dark yellow, you are not drinking enough fluids. If you had a calcium kidney stone, it may help to: Eat less salt and salty foods. Milk, cheese, and yogurt are all good sources of calcium. Also limit the following; Coffee, teas, colas, and chocolate. Dark green vegetables, such as spinach. Beets, berries, and cranberries. Oranges and sweet potatoes. Avoid grapefruit juice. Drink lemonade made from real lemons (not lemon flavoring). It is high in citrate, which may help prevent kidney stones. There may be symptoms of sharp pain that start in back and side, and move toward the groin or testicles. Inability to find a comfortable position, person having kidney stones often pace the floor. Nausea and vomiting with ongoing flank pain. Blood in the urine. The frequent urge to urinate, or pain or diffuclty with urination. Signs of a urinary tract infection. Bladder stones are most likely to form in chronic cystitis bladder infection or chronic retention of urine or can cause bleeding from the bladder, difficult and painful passing of urine and ofter lower abdominal pain. Sometimes may be symptoms of : Fever and chills. Painful urination. Cloudy or foul-smelling urine. Because the symptoms of kidney stones can also be signs of other urinary problems. Acupuncture, as itself is a powerful medicine, which aids to prevent diseases, control pain and increase both the ability to function and the quality of peoples lives. It has also helped many people who were not successfully treated through conventional western medicine. Several conditions can be dramatically improved or remedied in full including STONES be it of Cholelithiasis or Urolithiasis. Acupuncture ONNURI<SUJOK> is traditionally accomplished through insertion of very fine needles at the certain energy meridians, energy gates,joints of afected organs points, or energy flow therapy of acupuncture located along the meridians. Thus, the ACUPUNCTURE ONNURI is effective to have CURE of STONES. The remission of the disease can be achieved and medicamentous therapy simultaneously can be reduced or eliminated altogether. The course of treatment is defenietly uneventful.

 One must opt for ACUPUNCTURE, particularly Acupuncture SuJok, Onnuri, Triorigin, SixKi Thereapy or Eight Origin concept’s of energy. With the energy concepts, stones are produced when excess of coldness energy is in Kidney meridian or organs. Stone is localized in Renal Pelvis. How stones are formed through excerotory system. Basic energy of Heat(circulatory system), Branch energy of coldness(excerotory system).
