Report on the Disappearance of Carcinoma/Cancerous Syndrome

Even though medicine has developed tremendously, cancer is still today a chronic and life threatening disease. Recently, patients are turning to traditional therapies such as acupuncture for cancer management as opposed to the aggressive approach of modern medicine.

There has been much research published indicating that acupuncture is beneficial for chemotherapy-induced nausea, vomiting, and cancer pain.Other data also suggests acupuncture might be effective for chemotherapy-induced leukopenia, postchemotherapy fatigue, radiation therapy-induced xerostomia, insomnia, and anxiety.

In this article we introduce six case studies on the disappearance of carcinoma/cancerous syndrome after acupuncture treatment and the use of herbal medicines. The goal of this paper is to show that acupuncture has direct anticancer effects and should be used in the first instance before turning to more aggressive therapies.


Case 1

Non-Small Cell Carcinoma 非小细胞肺癌

ECIWO Acupuncture Case Study – Compilation 02

case studies

Dr. Rackow
86482 Aystetten, Gartenstrasse 14A, Germany

I had been to Düsseldorf in 1997 and Koln in 1998. In 1999, I attended the T T Ang ECIWO-System Seminar in Singapore on two occasions. In May 1999, I had successfully gone through a course on ECIWO Clinical Observation Training at Chinese Nature-Cure Institute.

I have mastered the practical technique of ECIWO-System in the treatment and with this ECIWO-System, my treatment brought out pleasant results.

I have treated various types of heart and lung vascular diseases, eye diseases and cervical or lumbar vertebra symptom through the ECIWO-System for many years. Below are some of the similar diseases of which I had treated before.


HEART & LUNG VASCULAR DISEASE

There was no sufficient treatment available from all local doctors and hospitals. The patient was in a desolate life.

Treatment And Course:

The first treatment with bioresonance-therapy allergy of milk and wheat. After the treatment, the patient’s condition was improved, but not sufficient. At the same time, Mrs Obweger was required to change her eating habit, which would improve her health condition.

One day, she came to me by train. Upon arrival, she felt extreme headache. I gave her one ECIWO Acupuncture treatment with additional Lidocain on the tibia and head point. Within seconds, her headache was gone.

Mrs Obweger was very surprised and happy. After completing 7 days of treatments with ECIWO-Point on head and pancreas areas, she felt good with no relapse thereafter.

Regulate The Immunology Function

bateria header

Thousand years ago, the Chinese had already discovered how to make use of Chinese herbs to balance the body Yin & Yang system and the use of needles on the body to eliminate pain and cure diseases to perfect health.

In 1963, a roundstone needle, which is determined as the primitive tool for acupuncture therapy, was unearthed in the relics of the Neolithic Age at Toudaowa, Dolun Banner, and Inner Mongolia. Therefore, the origin of Bianshi can be traced back to the Neolithic Age, which was four to ten thousand years ago.

The cumulative clinical experience on human being and the time-tested theories constitute the most comprehensive medical system.

The application of acupuncture treatment consists of using needle to stimulate the acupoints and using moxibustion on the superficial area, to re-activate the body function, growth and to influence the internal organs to perform self-healing.

It remains the world’s oldest, safest treatment that has no side effect and does not disrupt the body physiological function. Therefore the international medical fraternity had increasingly treasured acupuncture.

The Important Effect of Acupuncture in Regulating the Immunology Function

Moxibustion on the kidney point of rat everyday for 30 minutes for 7 consecutive days could remarkably overcome epidemic haemorrhage fever virus (EHFV), as well as increase the function of cytophagy in the abdominal cavity of the rat.

Experiment on lymphocyte function shown that, rats being treated with moxibustion, are observed to have higher reproduction reaction of their spleen cells, which help induce Con A and IL2 in normal rat and the ones that had inflammation – infected rat. This proved that moxibustion increases the cellular immunity and improve the function of anti-inflammation.

In a case study, involving the use of Chinese herbs such as Fu-Zi (aconite root), Rou-Gui (cinnamon bark), Hong-Hua (safflower) etc and made into a “cake”, placed on acupoints Zhongwan (Ren 12), Qihai (Ren 6), Zusanli (St 36), Tienshu (St 25), Dachangshu (Ub 25) etc to treat 41 cases of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The total effective rate was 92.4% effectively higher than the corresponding groups in the western medicine, of which the total effective rate, was 62.5%.

This explains how indirect moxibustion with Chinese herbs could regulate the T cell subclassification and the immunology function. This treatment guides and adjusts the immunology function of the IBS patient effectively.

A Japanese scholar, Mr Xiao Yuan Zao Er, did a research on 12 elderly people age between 66-92. He selected acupoints Zhongwan (Ren 12), Tienshu (St 25), Guanyuan (Ren 4), Hegu (Li 4), Zusanli (St 36), Sanyinjiao (Sp 6), Feishu (Ub 13), Ganshu (Ub 18), Pishu (Ub 20), Shenshu (Ub 23) etc. and performed acupuncture treatment twice a week for 2 months. The result was lymphocyte CD3, CD4 and CD4/CD8 appeared to increase significantly.

Research was done on malignant tumor patients with low cellular immunity. As a major means of effective therapy, radiation and chemotherapy not only destroy malignant tumor cells; it severely damaged the normal cells at the same time. Thus, it further reduces the body immunity system. After radiation and chemotherapy, CD2, CD4 had decreased, CD8 normal, CD4/CD8 declined.

Needling on acupoints Quchi (Li 11), Hegu (Li 4), Zusanli (St 36) etc increased CD2, CD4. No effect on CD8. As a result, improving CD4/CD8 disorder, hence, enhance the immunity of the cell.

Cancerous patients were given moxibustion on Dazhui (Du 14), Feishu (Ub 13), and Pishu (Ub 20) twice a week, each time 3 zhuang (direct-moxa). One month later, it was found that the T-cell and T cell subclassification do not have significant changes. However, the ratio of the T-inhibit/killer cells had increased significantly.

Malignant tumor patients have a decline of T cell subclassification, IL-2 (Interleukin-2) and high number of inactive Natural killer cell. After needling, results revealed significant improvement and regulating T-lymphocyte and T cell subclassification, and enhance the IL-2 and natural killer cell activity.

Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) level in serum dropped significantly, this shown that needling can intensely stop the manifestation of the TNF in blood. Thus, reducing the danger of pathology changes of TNF, which occurred after the acute cerebral infarction. Therefore needling had double effects of preventing further development of thrombus, which in turn provide protection of the brain.

Needling on specific acupoint could significantly enhance the immunity adhesion activity of red cells organism even after 24hrs. By using wheat-seed moxibustion (mai li jiu direct moxa) once a day for 15 treatments, could significantly increase the red blood cell C3b and cell IC Rossette formation rate. Moxibustion therefore has been recommended and is an important practice to regulate immunity and for anti-aging.

Rat that has been given indirect moxibustion with salt on acupoint Shenque (Ren 8), has seen an increase in Natural killer cell activity (NK). This method was repeated within 48 hour before the Natural killer cell activity (NK) starts to decline to prevent lapse of NK activity and sustaining it at a much higher level.

As in the case of asthmatic patient, the value of T cell Subclassification, CD3, CD4, CD4/CD8 not only declined but also led to lower NK cell activity. By adopting ” ge jiang jiu shenque ” (indirect moxibustion with ginger) once a day for 30 days consecutively, it was noticed that both the value of CD3, CD4, CD4/CD8 and NK cell activity had risen in varied degrees.

In the case of healthy person, by having acupuncture on Shangjuxu (St.37) for 12 consecutive days, it had shown that both serum Immunoglobulin G (IgG) and Immunoglobulin A (IgA) had increased comparatively prior to needling session.

Among them, IgG had enhanced significantly vis-a-vis Ig A. However IgM do not have any changes fundamentally. For a normal person, having needling on acupoints such as Zusanli (St 36), Dazhui (Du 14), Tienshu (St 25), Quchi (Li 11) etc. Their Immunoglobulin had increased within 3 days and was maintained at the same level for more than 12 days.

Needling on acupoint Hegu (Li 4) on a healthy person has successfully induced interferons (IFN) while moxibustion bring out the effect of interferon¡¯s and has up to 8 hrs of effectiveness in antigen carrier of no symptom hepatitis B Virus (HBV).

Research has proven that acupuncture can effectively induce IFN against Newcastle disease virus (NDV.)

In another word, under the condition of viral infections, acupuncture could further enhance the effects of anti-virus mechanism effectively. It has shown that while applying the enhancement induction effect on the IFN of the rat¡¯s, moxibustion is stronger than needling. Both weak stimulation and strong stimulation could further enhance the induction effect of rat¡¯s IFN. However, weak stimulation seems to produce better results.

Patient is a dentist based in Jakarta. She came to Singapore and consulted me that she was diagnosed with colon cancer but did not want western medication. She was using food cure remedy and was eager to seek acupuncture as an alternative treatment to help her.

From the auricular diagnose, I found that not only the tumor points T 1, T 2, T 3 * were hyperactive, her appendix area was also highly sensitive. Her tongue and face looked pale, which was due to anemia, poor energy force and lack of vital energy (qi). On her first visit, she requested for a diagnosis only.

A few months later, she decided to come back to undergo my treatment program, which constituted a course of 15 sittings. She sensed a great improvement and she felt more energy flow in her body, her bowel movements were smooth and her facial complexion looked healthier.

The points prescribed were E-System large intestine, kidney point at 2nd metacarpal bone and cancer point on the sole of the foot. The patient returned to Jakarta.

A few months later, she also brought her friend who had suffered from cancer to see me in Singapore. She had told her friend that her colon cancer was cured by my treatment. Since then she had been recommending patients to me. She visited me again in June 2002; Unfortunately, I was out of town.

Acupuncture for Varicose Veins

veins

THE PHYSIOLOGICAL CONCEPT

Varicose veins – distended, visible superficial veins on the legs – are almost always the result of problems with valves within the venous system of the leg. All leg veins contain one-way flap valves which are designed to help the flow of blood in the veins in an upward direction on its return to the heart.

When one or more of these valves fails to function correctly, some blood is able to flow back down into the leg – in the wrong direction – and tends to overfill and distend branches of superficial veins under the skin. Over a period of time, this additional pressure of blood causes the veins to stretch, bulge and become visible. At the same time, tiny capillary branches of the veins are also overfilled with blood, producing multiple spider veins and purple discolouration.

In some cases, varicose veins can also cause skin changes, damage, sclerosis, heaviness, weakness, tiredness and pain on the leg.

THE TCM CONCEPT

According to TCM theory, the general pathology of varicose veins is usually spleen qi deficiency and blood stagnation. Factors like stress, long time standing, emotional agitation and greasy foods are the causes for qi and blood disharmony, qi deficiency, production of phlegm and blood stagnation.

To break this down even further, varicose veins can be classified into three broad categories:

toxic damp heat  type spleen deficiency, food stagnation, qi stagnation transforming to heat, accumulated toxic heat flowing downward to the meridians. Symptoms include tight varicose veins, local redness, swelling, hotness and pain, red color skin around the veins, scorching pain, thirsty but not want to drink, foul breath, restlessness, red, tender and puffy tongue with yellow greasy coating, slippery and rapid pulse.

damp heat type   accumulated phlegm and dampness transforming to heat, damp-heat flowing down ward. Varicose veins like messy ropes, local aching, tightness, heaviness and distension, oily and bright surrounding skin, body heaviness and tiredness, heaviness of head as if being wrapped, symptoms aggravates in the afternoons, dark purple and enlarged tongue with turbid greasy coating, deep and rapid pulse.

deficient cold and dampness type  cold and dampness accumulated in the interior due to qi deficiency. Varicose veins shaped like earthworms, soft upon palpation, mild continuous pain, gray or sallow skin color, local cold and damp sensation, dizziness, symptoms aggravates after stress, sallow complexion, pale enlarged tongue with white greasy coating, moderate and weak pulse.

WHAT CAN ACUPUNCTURE DO?

Acupuncture is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine which has more than 2000 years of history. This ancient treatment method has very good effects on varicose veins. However, it is rarely known to the Western world.

Acupuncture can improve the blood circulation effectively. By inserting the tiny needles into the key points along the meridians, the acupuncturist forces the blood to move in the veins and surrounding areas. Meanwhile, the points for coordinating the internal organs are selected to enhance the energy and blood flow to supply and develop the source of blood to the area. Like the clogged pipe being washed wide open by a forceful supply of water.  Sometimes, suctions will also be used to remove the stagnant blood.

Arthritis

CLINIC OBSERVANCE OF 692 CASES OF CHRONIC RHEUMATISM AND RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS TREATED

Central Hospital Rheumatism Session,
Sandogou Town, Anxi County,
Gansu Province, China.

Key words:
Self-made/lingyidan/rheumatism/arthritis/clinic observance

Abstract:

Rheumatism and rheumatoid arthritis belongs to one o the stubborn from point of view of modern medicine respectively Chinese ancient medicine. By now there is no special way for treatment, and the normal way is to take kind immunity suppression and hormone, etc, in order to appease the disease by reducing fever and relieving pain. However, aforementioned treatment has obvious disadvantages such as low effect, low cure rate, big side effect, so possibly more toreturement would be imposed to the patient.

Therefore, the author of this article applyed “Lingyiling” in to 692 cases of said disease, coordinated with physical exercise, from July 1993 to July 1996. The result was commonly acceptable and the cure rate is high enough. Ganoderma lucium, astragalus root, red flower, short-pedical aconite root are introduced as composition of “Lingyiling”.

The integrated medicine provide the function of tonifying the kidney and nourishing liver, strengthening the spleen and tonifying the lung, supplementing qi and expelling the pathogenic factors from the body surface. All these functions are designed especially for the said disease, so undoubtedly and naturally the treatment result is ideal after all.

Specification:

Both Rheumatism and rheumatoid arthritis is classified within the category of arthralgia-syndrome in Chinese medicine. It was stated in “Neijing. Suxiang” that numbness can be generated in case the qi of wind, coldness, and moisture immerse into the body at the same time.

Such a statement explained the original cause of the disease, which will develop further into numbness on the condition of physical weakness, low immunity ability, and qi and blood is obstructed at joint. The author of this article, upon knowledge of Chinese medicine and Tibet medicine theory, present the result report of 692 cases ‘ diseases treated by “Lingyiling” as follows:

  1. General information: All the 692 patients resorted to our treatment because of treatment failure of west medicine they had received first, such as anti-rheumatism or hormone etc.
    • Sex: M 325 F 367
    • Age: Min. 8 Max. 82 Average 7
    • Course (years): Min.3 Max. 35 Average 7
    • Type: Rheumatism arthritis 356 rheumatoid arthritis 336
  2. Treatment: Oral inhalation of “Lingyidan”, twice every single day, 2 pieces every time, accompanied with lukewarm water. Every 30 days is regarded as one stage. The inhalation of the anti-rheumatism and hormone medicine should be reduced by 1/2 after the first stage, by 1/4 after two stages, completely stopped after 3 stages. Any fat, uncooked, cold food is forbidden during the treatment. In parallel, the patient should do some body exercise as soon as the pain is on the process of relief.

Result analysis:

i). Basically cured: The clinic inconvenience basically disappears after 3~6 stages, limes cab be stretched freely, no problem at carrying out normal work (light labor), no more recurrence in the following one year.

ii). Cured to some extent: Pains are relieved obviously and tumefaction disappears after 36 stages. The joints become much more flexible, some of the patients can work but cannot carry out any work.

Result:

381 basically cured covers 55.1%;166 cured to some extent covers 24%; 90 effected to some extent covers 13%; 55 ineffective covers 9.5%; general effectiveness rate 92.1%.

Summary:

The characteristics of chronic rheumatism and rheumatoid arthritis are painful limbs joint, uneasy stretching, limited activity, and long process for treatment, likely recurrence. Besides these symptoms, all my patients had symptoms such as physical weakness, much sweat, decreasing memory, centrifugal fat, uncomfortable stomach, no food.

According to Chinese medicine concept, it can be divided into kidney & liver triglyceride, the stomach is the origin for the day after tomorrow, source for mesocardia of qi and blood, intermediate of induction of labor in midpregancy and mesectoblast, macula cribosa media, so midforceps delivery and delivery and equator of lens, insufficient qi and blood, pausing of wetness and decreasement of strength.

According to modern medicine, the crypto rhea, due to puberty’s sex gland mature or adult’s psychological overpressure, causes sebaceous glands’ secretion abnormally increases so hair follicle’s obstruction brings chronic inflammation.

From the point of view of microorganism, people has more and more chances to contact surrounding world because of improvement of living standard, so does the infection possibility of mite. In case being infected by mite, an increasingly number of mites absorbs the fluid inside the hair follicle and sebaceous gland, destroy the hair follicle and sebaceous gland, by and by the chronic inflammation is formed.

The author of this composition learnt from the many experiences of clinic experiences and practices, with instruction of the Chinese medicine, by absorbing the advantages of Tibet medicine, so far knows that coptis root, gardenia, tremella for heat-clearing and fire-purging, evacuating pus and nourishing face, dahurian angelica ing; all 36 kinds of medicine made into small balls, 6 gram for each piece, which can work for three main functions:

  1. Heating the stomach and strengthening the liver, nourishing the physical condition, the amomum fruit and the maidong tang in the medicine are used for dispelling fluid-retention to relive vomiting and removing blood stasis and reducing phlegm and even improve the physical manpower, also can exempt the patient from the stomachache, dumbness, etc.
  2. Nourishing liver and kidney strengthen the bone, dispelling wind and erasing moisture. The loranthus mulberry mistletoe and mantis egg-case, dendrobium, chronic tonsillitis, grass leaved sweet flag rhizome can all be used for abscess of iliac fossa with flexed leg, regulating ying and wei, coordinating the actions o function among the viscera, removing stagancy of indigested food and reliving flatulence, by and by the disease will be appeased and erased completely.
  3. Increasing qi and consolidating the exterior, correcting the stem and dispelling the poison. The medicine can exempt the side effect caused by long-term inhalation of anti-rheumatism and hormone. Meanwhile it can regulate the body and enhance the immunity ability.

In general, the three main functions of the “Lingyidan” is designed especially for curing the disease, the whole medicine has long duration and powerful effectiveness, can function by correcting stem and dispelling xie, coordinated with positive exercise, reaches a great level of result up to now. Possibly it has better clinic value in application, we will continue our observanc and research.

Typical cases:

i. Mrs Zhang female, 39 years old, worker, 12th,Qctorber, 1995. Because eczema papulosum accompanied by pustule appeared on her face due to cosmetics. Since one year ago infection was generated due to pressing by herself, papulosum together with pustule was dispersed on the face. Her feeling then was scorching hot, painful, itching. Now she is taking smilax glabra rhizoma, totally 0.4g/t, 3 times/day; hemp seed, totally 10mg/t, 2 times/day; one stage later all these were cut into half. After 5 stages of treatment, most of papulosum disappeared. By longer time of curing, the disease was exempted and never took place any more till now.

ii. Mr. Huang, male, 42 years old, received diagnosis on 5th, March 1994, following which, his upper forehead appeared a lot of erythema and felt itching. Three years ago, he was told by the local hospital after treatment that, erythema was developed into erosive pustule, appearance of erythema and feeling of itching took place at his cheeks also, accompanied by abdominal distention, constipation, uroerythin, bitter taste. Such a illness situation lasted incidentally and recurrence especially in rainy days. We apply to him the disease such as smilax glabra rhizoma, totally 250g/t, 2 times/day; hemp seed, totally 100 mg/t, 3 times/day, dittany bark totally 10m/t, 3 t/d. Three stages later, every situation becomes much better, and 6 stages all the uncomfortable condition disappear, this also due to continue exercise, for instance, 30 minutes ~ 1 hour.

From July 1993 to July 1998, 692 patients have been observed under the treatment by our medicine, 2t/d, 2p/t with lukewarm water. Final result is 381 basically cured covers 55.1%, 166 effective to some extent covers 24%, 90 cured to some extent covers 13%, 55 ineffective covers 7.9%, general effectiveness rate is 92.1%. In any case such a result is comparably accptable.

The author of this composition also finds three main advantages of “Lingyidan” as follows:

1. Heating the stomach and strengthening the liver, nourishing the physical condition, the amomum fruit and the maidong tang in the medicine are used for dispelling fluid-retention to relive vomiting and removing blood stasis and reducing phlegm and even improve the phisical manpower, also can exempt the patient from the stomachach, tumbness, etc.

2. Nourishing liver and kidney strengthen the bone, dispelling wind and erasing moisture. The loranthus mulberry mistletoe and mantis egg-case, dendrobium, chronic tonsillitis, grassleaved sweetflag rhizome can all be used for abscess of iliac fossa with flexed leg, regulating ying and wei, coordinating the actions o function among the viscera, removing stagnancy of indigested food and reliving flatulence, by and by the disease will be appeased and erased completely.

3. Increasing qi and consolidating the exterior, correcting the stem and dispelling the poison. The medicine can exempt the side effect caused by long-term inhalation of anti-rheumatism and hormone. Meanwhile it can regulate the body and enhance the immunity ability.

In general, As the functions of “Lingyidan”, It works as strengthening the body resistance and/or resorting normal functioning of the body to consolidate the constitution; cleaning away xie, cure the disease from both interior and exterior, long duration and powerful effectiveness of the medicine. Making full use of above-mentioned advantages, our products can possibly provide more effect, for this it would be necessary to observe further.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (Neurasthenia)

fatique

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) first gained the attention of the public in 1980s. The difficult with defining the syndrome is with the fact that it is easier to identify what the syndrome excludes than what it includes.

Although CFS had been found to occur to children, teenagers, and people in their fifties, sixties, and even seventies, the most prone to the illness are adults from their mid-twenties to their late forties. Women are afflicted anywhere from twice to three times as often as men, although there are indications that cases among men are rising.

Some common causes of CFS are nutritional deficiency, acquired toxicity ( from environment, food and drugs); poor stress-coping abilities; over dependent on vitamins; drugs addiction. Other factors that contribute to CFS might be recurrent viral and bacterial infections; reaction of immune system to vaccination and immunization; bowel toxemia and infestation of fungi, protozoa, and parasites and lifestyle factors ( inadequate sleep, exercise and relaxation).

The result, is a slow process of depleting the body’s energy – qi, thus weakening the body and making the body vulnerable to viruses.

Base on the TCM concept supported by books written in the year 259 namely AB Classic Of Acupuncture & Moxibustion, in the 3rd Century – The Classic Of Sphymology and the year 1220 – Enquirer On Acupuncture & Moxibustion Therapy and many others, have all proven that related CFS symptoms are neurasthenia, lost of memory, irritation, globus hystericus and “Ben Dun” which is a feeling of masses of gas ascending within the abdomen like running piggies, usually seen in cases of gastro-intestinal neurosis which indicated in the acupuncture channel as due to Chong meridian disorder.

CFS also belongs to the categories of ‘shi mian’ (insomnia); ‘dou men’ (dreamful sleep); ‘xuan yun’ (dizziness); ‘yang wei’ (impotence), ‘yijing’ (spermatorrhea); etc. Such symptoms will gain special benefit and relieve from acupuncture, acu-massage tendon manipulation therapy since ancient time.

In the modern TCM practice, stress, anxiety associated with fatique, laziness, insomnia and hypersomnia could be due to overworked and exhaustion, vitamin / medicine / drug dependent producing a immune system disorder known in the chinese concept as insufficient of “Zhen Qi”.

This also includes symptoms like post influenza virus attack, post operation and many other chronic discomfort. However base on chinese medical concept, this disease can be divided into the following five types, each related to malfunction of one or more of the vital organs in our body:

1) Deficiency of the Liver-yin and Kidney-yin.

Symptoms includes:

Fullness and dizziness in the head, tinnitus, amnesia, irritability and excitability, lumbago, dry throat and mouth, red tongue with thin and yellow fur, wiry and rapid pulse.

2) Insufficiency of both the Spleen and Kidney

Symptoms includes:

Pale face, listlessness, pain in waist and debility of legs, anorexia, light coloured urine, chilliness and cold limbs, insomnia and unsound slumber, impotence, premature ejaculation, spermatorrhea, pale tongue, and deep, thready and feeble pulse, etc.
