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!

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.
