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

Mr. Zihongchon, Age: 58 Johore

File no.: 0206-12

On May 2002, the patient was diagnosed with Lung CA. The CT scan showed the mass was 3.6 x 3.7cm and 5 days was increased to 5.3cm x 4.00cm and had compressed the right middle lobe bronchus and the right pulmonary vessels, the mediastinal lymph nodes had metastases.

Suggested acupoints were E-system Lung and Throat at metacarpal bone, Zusanli (St 36), Dazhui (Du14), Feishu (Ub 13) and Auricular Lung & Throat point. Direct moxibustion on Zusanli (St 36) was performed twice a week.

In addition, food remedy such as white butter, Jew’s ear, Kiwi and Asparagus also aided in recovery.


Case 2

Fibrosarcoma / Tumor 筋瘤硬结/肿瘤

Mr. Fu Age: 31 Singapore File no.: 0303-28

This patient is an interior designer. The patient presented with a Fibrosarcoma of 7cmx3cm in his left medial thigh, near acupoint Xuehai.

Due to the pain, he had difficulty in walking. In the past 12 years, he had undergone 3 operations to remove the recurring cyst.

In May 2003, he was distressed that the cyst recurred but he was reluctant to be hospitalized. In our treatment program we performed micro-cut therapy to remove the discharge.

The acupoints prescribed were local points, using a box system theory, supplemented with acupoints Yinlinquan (Sp9) and Sanyinjiao (Sp6).

1. WARM NEEDLING BY SUSPENDED MOXIBUSTION
悬灸温针—类 红外线热疗

Commonly used to enhance acupuncture treatments, this combination is especially helpful in cold, damp and stagnation syndromes, blockage over long duration or years, wind, pain, circulation, stiffness of joints, difficulty in mobility, etc. It is suitable for both Hot and Cold symptoms, to tonify the body or reduce symptoms. Moxibustion is applied by suspending the lighted moxa stick above acupoint, with or without the needle, allowing the patient to receive the heat. The heat should be tolerable and gentle, in order for the patient to relax and allow the body to react according to the treatment. Usually about 3 to 5 minutes, or in emergency cases or cases which require heat reinforcement, may take up to 10 – 30 minutes. Extra care and attention to be paid to open wounds, broken skin surface, Diabetic cases or neuro-derma disorders, so as to avoid burns, damaging the skin and scarring.

2. DIRECT MOXIBUSTION
接触灸—烧炙破坏疗法

Rolled Moxa wool or cut moxa stick can be used here, placed close to the skin surface and on the needle before lighting it, commonly applied to chronic diseases, such as Omarthritis, Sciatica, Herpes Zoster, persistent Asthma, etc. Treatments are usually given once daily or every alternate day.

3. SCARRING MOXIBUSTION
瘢痕灸—激发自体免疫疗法

Direct moxibustion is used here, one consumed cone is known as “Zhuang”. Usually 3 zhuang to 7 zhuang is used. Some acupoints or conditions may use up to 500 zhuangs. This method is to create a tiny blistering / festers on the skin, inducing a sterile superficial immunity effect to reduce pain, dredge collaterals, stimulate interferon, production of anti-inflammatory enzymes, and increase immunity.

Suitable for low immune conditions, such as asthma, allergies, herpes zoster, arthritis, joints inflammation, geriatric problems, weakness, tumors, etc. Treatments are usually given two or three times a week.

4. HOT NEEDLING METHOD
火针刺法—-深入烧炙疗法

Known as焠刺法, this is an ancient acupuncture technique by inserting hot needle into the affected area, often used in surgical conditions and arthritic inflamed joints. In order to achieve cell regeneration, superficial or old cells structures were broken down, similar to destroying the mutated cells. Eg., Warts, Pigmentation, deep tissue symptoms, allergic dermatitis, eczema,. Therapeutic course of treatments require two to five sittings.

5. COMMON ACUPUNCTURE METHOD
毫针刺法—-调和阴阳 补虚泻实

Hao Zhen ( 毫针 ) or Filiform Needle is the most commonly used needle in the modern acupuncture developments. This form of acupuncture needles have been practiced worldwide by western trained acupuncturist. The techniques of the needle which include, insertion of the needle, manipulated the Yin and the Yang, reinforcing for the deficiency syndrome and reducing manipulations for the excess syndrome.. A skillful practitioner will be able to induce and direct vital energy (Qi) to the acupuncture points, the meridians and the related organs or disorder areas as to enhance the effects of the technique. Filiform Needle Acupuncture are considered remedies with potential to conquer symptoms related to all kinds of diseases, This technique can be used for all kinds of ailments.

6. CUTTING METHOD / SMALL NEEDLE-BLADE NEEDLING METHOD
针刺割治疗法

Cutting Method is an ancient acupuncture technique by applying small needle-blades into affected location, hand, foot, or deep tissue. Suitable for various conditions related to the bones, joints, and cell renewals in wound healing. For example, in cancer cases, the immune system can be stimulated by applying the cutting method on Carcinoma points of the Foot.

In modern day acupuncture, normal or special acupuncture needles can be used to deal the same effect. It is better known as Acupuncture Microsurgery, a highly refined skill and is almost similar to modern medical concept that may cost many times more.

In certain conditions, needles were applied in quick insert and remove actions on acupoints. Example, 钩针(Gou Zhen) or Hook Needle as used for cutting, 芒针(Mang Zhen) or Long Needle as used in deep tissue acupuncture, or 雀啄术 Sparrow Pecking Needling Method, 报刺术 Trigger Needling Method in the deep acupoint, 沿皮刺法 (Yan Pi Ci Fa), applying needles along the skin. 骨刺法 (Gu Ci Fa), applying needles into the deep acupoint on the side of the bones.

The common syndrome among the cases where these techniques were applied is a combination of stagnation of Qi and Blood, obstructing the meridians and collaterals, leading to poor blood circulation, pain and numbness, malnutrition and weakness, further strains to the affected area.

Variety of bones and joints disorders, such as disease along the spinal column, frozen shoulders, arthritic inflammation, deformation, stiffness, pains and numbness, calculi, spurs, hyperosteogeny, immobility, etc., can be helped by using acupuncture microsurgery technique.

Sports or trauma injuries, chronic condition of wear and tear of joints, and post operative wound healing, hemorrhoids, low immune disorders such as asthma, can also be helped. Therapeutic course of treatments require about two to five sittings and it is advisable to consult Acupuncturist regarding this method of treatment.

7. HEAD NEEDLING METHOD
头针刺法

Usually can be observed as row of 10 to 18 needles inserted along the surface area of the head, treatments arranged for once daily or alternate days. From the research gathered by many TCM and Acupuncture hospitals and practitioners, this method renders good results for post stroke hemiplagia, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cerebral palsy, post operative paralysis, vertigo, and loss of speech, trigeminal neuralgia, and cerebellum imbalance.

Neurological function disorders such as chorea, intelligence, and epilepsy. Others such as organ prolapsed and abnormal uterine bleeding can also be helped using this method.

Opposing side will be used for treatment, such as treatment will be applied on the left head if the hemiplagia occur on the right.

For more details on this method, please refer to the relevant books written by various professors who are familiar with this technique, such as Dr Jiao Shunfa and Prof Mingqing Zhu.

8. HUA TUO JIA JI METHOD华佗夹脊疗法

Using Jia Ji points, or 两边 (Liang Bian), distributed on both sides of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar vertebrae, and can be observed as row of 18 to 28 needles inserted on either side, or observed as one straight row. Moxa cones or wool can be used too. Treatments can be applied daily or alternate days. Suitable for degenerative disorders, cervical spondylosis, inflammation of vertebrae, spinal column disorders, respiratory and blood vessels disorders, digestive disorders of liver and gall bladder, diabetes, myasthenia gravis, lower limbs paralysis, etc.

Applying the E System acupuncture theory, these sets of Jia Ji points can be used to treat the relative organs disorder along the path of spinal column, enabling the blood supply more nutrients to the acupoint and specific organs, and to enhance the body immune system.

9. BLOOD LETTING METHOD
放血疗法—类手术放血疗法

Also known as bleeding method, this is another ancient technique, using acupuncture techniques to bleed or “drain”, usually to activate blood and Qi, reduce swelling, disperse stagnation, and detoxify cases of inflammation, reduction of heat in Excessive disorders, complements Acupuncture Microsurgery for the surface in necessary cases. Needling methods such as 梅花针or 七星针Therapeutic course of treatments require 1 to 3 sittings.

Three-Edged Needle apply blood letting for dispersing a stasis三棱针–手术排血/放血疗法 Suitable for various emergency conditions, using 三棱针 (San Ling Zhen, otherwise known as Three-Edged Needle) to perform blood letting technique for disperse, relief the condition. San Ling Zhen blood letting method can be applied on emergency conditions such as Acute Laryngitis, Tonsilitis, heat stroke, apoplexy, Acute Pain syndrome or acute low back pain. Also suitable for acute gastrointestinal inflammation, etc.

Distal acupoints such as finger tips can be selected to apply blood letting for dispersing a stasis, or stagnation. This is common in stroke conditions or cerebral hemorrhage.

10. TRADITIONAL SUCTION / CUPPING METHOD
拔罐/角吸疗法

Used in promoting circulation of blood and Qi, pain relief, reduce swelling, dispel cold and dampness, often used for arthritis of wind-cold-dampness, acute sprains, cold syndromes, wind syndromes, acute gastrointestinal pain. Local area usually becomes sore, flushed or bruised, and is considered normal and will disappear after some time.

Colour is used to define various conditions in the TCM theory. After removal of the cup, the location may have a bruise or colored circular mark, indication of the condition related to the acupoint, the location or even the related organ.

If it is observed to be red, it can be explained as Heat or Blockage in the meridians & collaterals or internal organs being overactive. Dark red colour, sometimes accompanied with slight swelling, is another indication of Qi and blood blockage and stagnation in the meridians and channels, commonly found in cases of external injury, eg., like a bad fall, sports injury or traumatic accident.

If the location is observed as yellow, may be due to wind and dampness, can be found in rheumatic arthritis conditions, 痹症 Bi-Syndrome, disorders in the joints, four limbs, and affecting the meridians, organs or distal joints.

Greenish Purple – Cold and dampness, commonly found with very poor micro-circulation or numbness, usually some stimulation such as tapping or massage is applied before putting on the cups.

11. HEAT THERAPY / MOXIBUSTION
热疗/隔药物温灸

Can be applied through various instruments such as Hanging, Box, or applied direct onto the needle. Indirectly over a piece of ginger, salt or garlic.

Within 24 hours after Acupuncture treatment, the response of endocrine to perform homeostasis is high but gradually disperses after 72 hours. Therefore, it is advisable to follow instructions on the next treatment.

Acute illness has to be treated intensively daily or twice a day to obtain the required results.

For chronic and complicated cases it is advisable to continue treatment for 10-15 sittings as a course, or if necessary, as many as 30 sittings in one treatment course.

Sittings for prevention treatment and health improvement could be arranged for once a month or special arrangement for prevention treatment for acute seasonal attacks of asthma, bronchitis asthma and pre-menopause syndromes.

ECIWO Acupuncture Therapy is the latest way to explain Acupuncture. It means “Embryo Containing Information of the Whole Organism”, and is based on the Bioholography Law and Pan-Embryo Therapy. When this therapy is applied, the organic hormone for homeostasis is influenced. The duration of every treatment is 20-45 minutes with a course of 1-15 sittings. Depending on individual response to the treatment, some cases may see improvements

In Acute or Early onset of symptoms, usually 1 to 3 acupoints are selected without strong stimulation, without retaining the needles, because the acupoints will normally experience strong reaction to the stimulation during these periods.

Chronic or needle phobic, or weak physical constitution, 5 to 7 acupoints, without strong stimulation retain 30 to 45 minutes; additional stimulation may be applied during intervals.

In certain cases, the course of meridians and collaterals were selected, by inserting needles on opposite direction with the points, facing each other. Usually found on four limbs, using up to 16 to 32 needles. This can serve as “locking” the acupoint, reinforce or even to reduce the treatment effect.

Except traumatic injuries, the Nature Cure theory can assist the human body’s immune system overcome any disease (from ageing to cell changes) caused by imbalance hormones of insufficient endocrine.

These conditions cause malfunction of the body’s immune system, resulting in weak resistance. This, in turn, causes individual cells to grow abnormally, according to turmoil- based, or TCM theory. This can be rectified with acupuncture treatment and acupuncture microsurgery has proven to be effective in stimulating the body to produce substances for overcoming illnesses, as well as delaying ageing.

Ordinary Acupuncture, ECIWO Acupuncture, ECIWO Medicine and Ancient Acupuncture surgery are considered remedies with potential to conquer symptoms related to all kinds of diseases. From the first diagnosis the patient will be advised on the numbers of treatment needed and will be closely observed and monitored during the course of treatment.

The conclusion that (except for cases like bone fracture, old age and collapse of the Yin and Yang disease) Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine based on the latest Embryonic ECIWO Therapy receives good response than conventional medicine and in comparison produces far fewer side effects it is the natural way of cure for sicknesses.

Modern View on the Theory of Channels, Collaterals, and Organs

TCM
A long time associate of mine, Dr Mikhail Teppone, send me his latest paper on the modern view of the theory of Channels, Collaterals, and organs.
I am re-posting his papers here, and if you are interested to find out more, please contact Dr Mikhail. His contact details can be found in at the end of the article.

ABSTRACT

The theory of Channels, Collaterals, and Organs is one of the most important but at the same time, one of the most difficult in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Do we need to preserve the original TCM lingo or is it possible to match the TCM terms with their equivalents in modern medicine? The authors review the main ideas about Channels and Organs theory and provide their own explanation.

We believe that ancient Chinese doctors understood the complexity of the human body and divided it into 2 morpho-funcional parts: cells and intercellular spaces. Through the theory of channels and Collaterals, those physicians described physiology and pathology of intercellular spaces and by the theory of Zang and Fu Organs, they described cellular physiology and pathology.

Key Words: Channels, Collaterals, Meridians, Organs, Cells, Intercellular Space

INTRODUCTION

IN THE DEVELOPED WESTERN COUNTRIES, people are increasingly aware of different types of alternative medicine. Despite the growing interest, alternative medicine has not yet been integrated into the mainstream healthcare system. Therefore, still remaining are 2 separate forms of medical practice, Modern Western and Traditional Eastern or Chinese medicine.

No doubt perhaps, the future of medicine lies in the integration of modem technology and the extensive wisdom and experience of Eastern healing methodology. The main obstacle for such integration is the difference of views on the nature of human organism, methods of diagnosing and treatment, as well as vague terms used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Do we need to preserve the original TCM lingo or is it possible to match the TCM terms with their equivalents in modem medicine? Can we apply such terms as Yin and Yang, Five Elements, Excess/Deficiency, Heat, and Wind

interchangeably with those of sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, various hormones, endorphins? After reading, our hope is that vague and unknown words will take on a new, deeper meaning in relation to the universal laws of nature and human development. Our desire is that TCM will become vital and accepted in the modern Western world.

According to the TCM theory of energy, Qi circulates through the human body via special pathways known as Channels and Coilaterals. This process supports normal organ and body functions. When disease occurs, the cause may be internal (hereditary or congenital Ql disorders, strong emotions, etc) or external (Wind, Heat, Cold, etc). Pathological conditions in TCM can be attributed to abnormal circulation of Qi and blood, which results in a state of excess or deficiency of organs and channels. Therapeutic methods used in TCM restore balance of Qi and blood between various points in the body.

MATHEMATICAL MODEL OF THE HUMAN BODY

The terms used in TCM first appeared in the ancient oriental philosophy and have very broad meanings. Modern science, on the contrary, employs terms with precise and exact definitions. Therefore, any attempt at literal translation of TCM terms into modern language directly would result in a loss of meaning and essence of that particular term. TCM theory can be represented as a simple mathematical model which would show the relationship between physiological and pathological laws of human organism. When we apply this model, where TCM terms and principles resemble elements of algebraic equation, we can understand an individual patient problem and find specific treatment approach. This is also true in cases of unknown etiology and pathogenesis where diagnosis and treatment are yet to be developed.

Acupoints

The skin of both human and animal is characterized by morphological and functional heterogeneity. The same is true for bodies of plants and insects. 1’2 In TCM, this heterogeneity is described as Acupoints, Skin Zones, Channels, and Collaterals.

Some publications on acupoints argue that there are no unusual morphological elements at the site of acupoints. Loose connective tissue with large numbers of nerve receptors, free nerve endings, extensive microcirculatory system, and cells with biologically active substances form the morphological basis for acupoints and intercellular connections, which include gap junctions. Gap junctions are microscopic
water channels that directly supply exchange of broad spectrum of nutrients between cytoplasm of tissue cells.3-7

Skin resistance varies from one to two Mega-ohms, but at the site of acupoint entrance, it decreases to 20—60 Kilo-ohms.8—ll Due to low resistance of skin at the site of acupoints, one may visualize them by a high voltage corona discharge device. Disruption of the electrical field has the highest value above low electric resistance points of the skin. At these areas, stimulated luminescence is observed on the dielectric medium (Figure I). 12

Besides electrical heterogeneity, acupoints have other specific characteristics such as low frequency oscillations (7—10 and 15 20 spontaneous visible light emission,14 increased accumulation of radioactive phosphorus, 15 increased sensitivity to high frequency electromagnetic radiation, 16’17 high conductivity or natural electromagnetic radiation from the sun, 18 etc.

This electrical heterogeneity of skin can still be detected during the first few days after death.2•19-21 However, due to autolytic processes occurring in the cell post mortem, the physical parameters of skin gradually equalize and electrical heterogeneity disappears.

Taking into account the above information—as well as the Chinese term for acupoint, kong xue, which means fissure or crevice—we can conclude that acupoints are places in the skin where connections between the epithelial cells are not tight, thus providing an entrance into the body. The site of acupoints contains large numbers of active elements, which make it a complex functional unit that provides interaction between internal body environments with its external surrounding (Figure 2).

System of Channels and Collaterals

Qi and blood Circulate in the human body along Channels and Collaterals. There are 12 main channels and their secondary vessels which supply normal function and defence of the human body by means of circulating Qi and blood.

Secondary vessels include Tendino-Muscular Channels, Luo Channels or Collaterals, Divergent Channels, and Curious or Extra Channels (Figure 3). Currently, there are 2 different views on channels. First, the channels themselves are non—existent; an imaginary line called ((meridian)) connects

functionally similar points; true connection between points is achieved through the function of the nervous and endocrine systems.22,23

Second, experimental data suggest the presence of a morphological relationship between the points of the same channel. For example, during acupuncture, the conduction along exact pathways of sensory reactions,24 electrical current,25,26warmth,27 visible light,28 and radioactive isotopes29 take
place.

The modern science approach suggest the presence of correlation between structure and function of a biological object. Presently, no specific structure has been found to identify the channels. But, sometimes the absence of structures can make way for a new function. For example, the “door or window aperture,” “river bed,” or “gap” all provide conduction or passage.

The main function of the channels is to conduct: electrical current, warmth, light, etc so that Qi travels along the channel. Channels can best be described as a network of gaps stretching along the well known anatomical structures.

The inner channel walls are formed by the surfaces of muscles, bones, tendons, vessels, and cells. These channels are filled with fibrous connective tissue, electrolytes, and structured water molecules.30’31 We presume that to be sufficient to ensure Qi conduction.

This theory is supported by the research of Korean physician Kim Bon Chan32 as well as the description found in the ancient book of the famous Chinese physician, Li Shi Zhen: ‘the inside of a human body contains tunnels and one, who mentally looks within self, can illuminate them.”33

Experimental data reveal that informational interaction between cells is achieved through the electromagnetic field at the range of 1 X 1010 Hz 28,34 From physics, we know that only wave-guides or dielectric wave-guides can conduct these high frequency waves. Impulses of relatively low frequency are conducted by the nervous system, but high frequency signals are conducted by the system of “gaps” or
wave-guides. Thus, the channels are the only possible entities that can transmit high frequency impulses produced by cells. Theoretical and experimental data show that channels can act as weave-guides to conduct electromagnetic waves 1,28
of various ranges.

Possibly, channels and collaterals form the oldest independent regulatory system of humans and animals.35-37 Morphological simplicity of channels is the reason why they have not been identified. In the words of a biologist, “channel system is too primitive in a view of modern biology.”38

Though basic, the channel system connects other more complex regulatory systems and provides interaction of inner organs with outside environment.

Based on the above, we can conclude that by using the theory of channels and collaterals, ancient Chinese doctors described physiology and pathology of intercellular spaces and body cavities (Figure 4).39

One may attempt to find correlation between channels, secondary vessels, and intercellular spaces of various anatomical structures, but this correlation would be more functional than anatomical. Depending on the disease and its sequence, disorders of organs and tissues can be linked to various channel structures. For example, in the event of inflammation of skin and subcutaneous tissue characterized
by inflammatory symptoms such as localized redness, hyperthermia, hyperesthesia, edema, and pain exacerbated by pressure, this type of abnormality can be described as “Excess of the Tendino-MuscuIar” channel. If skin changes its integrity, as when a keloid scar or ulcer is present, this would point to a disorder of the Luo channel.

Governor Vessel is a typical example of the gap model of a channel. It originates in the kidney, extends down to the perineum through the uterus or prostate gland, and then, one of the main branches ascends through the vertebral column. The point of GV 16 (Fong Fu) gives birth to the branch, which enters the skull. Its main pathway lies through the top of the head and ends at the upper lip.

What is an anatomical equivalent of the Governor Vessel: spinal chord or vertebral column? We believe that Governor Vessel is a vertebral channel; GV 16 (Fong Fu) corresponds to Foramen Magnum at the occipital bone.

Therefore, the branch of Governor Vessel penetrating the skull is the extension of the vertebral channel into the skull through Foramen Magnum (Figure 5).

In much the same way, we can analyze Conception Vessel and describe its relationship to the chest, abdominal, and pelvic cavities. Therefore, both Governor and Conception Vessels are cavities themselves, regulating the function of their respective organs.

Hence, channels are not organs, tissues, or cells but various body cavities. This approach is not yet integrated in modern Western medicine.

STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION OF ZANG (YIN) AND FU (YANG) ORGANS

TCM distinguishes 12 main organs in the human body: Lung, Spleen, Heart, Kidney, Liver, Pericardium, Stomach, Large Intestine, Small Intestine, Gallbladder, Bladder, and “Triple Energizer” (San Jiao). The first 6 belong to viscera or Zang (solid) organs; the other 6 belong to hollow or Fu
(hollow) organs. These organs are divided into Yin-Yang related pairs, which form one of the Five Elements.

Zang or dense organs have inner cavities (bronchus, bileducts, renal calyx, pelvis, etc and correspond to Fu or hollow organs (Figure 6). At the same time, Fu organs have solid walls, which correspond to the Zang organs (Figure 6).

Thus, Zang organs contain Fu properties inside, and Fu organs contain Zang properties outside. Therefore, a renal calculus is actually located in the Bladder Channel and peptic ulcer will need treatment of the Spleen Channel.

The term organ in TCM involves much broader meaning than an anatomical formation. All cells contain standard components like nucleus, mitochondria, Golgi complex, endoplasmic reticulum, etc. Each organelle possesses certain inherent functions. Function of oxidative phosphorylation and synthesis of ATP molecules is carried out in mitochondria; synthesis and transport of proteins takes place in endoplasmic reticulum; Golgi complex is responsible for the accumulation of proteins, synthesis of polysaccharides, and
more complex substances; the function Of regulation of differentiation, development, and death of cells belongs to the nucleus (Figure 7).

In the majority of cells, it is possible to allocate the function of breathing, which corresponds to the lung;
function of synthesis and storage of complex substance, which is appropriate for endocrine glands and the liver; and function of regulation of cell age, corresponding to
the kidneys, etc.

Thus, the concept of organ in TCM includes the set Of cellular and intracellular structures that carry out certain functions. For example, Lung involves all structures that facilitate diffusion and transport of gases (02 and C02) as well as oxidative phosphorylation and synthesis of ATP molecules. Therefore, regardless of the cause of “breathlessness” or shortness of breath from the modern perspective, the points on the channel of Lung are used to treat it.

DISCUSSION

Since the time acpuncture was introduced in the United States and Europe, discussion and debate about the nature of “acupoints, channels,” and “collaterals” has continued. There have been fewer questions about “organs,” perhaps, because of appearing like classic organs from the modern
point of view.

Scientific medicine made a large step ahead when R. Virchow claimed that disease was pathology of cells, but at the same time, any extracellular disorders were almost ignored or deemed “functional diseases.” Conceivably, the conception of “cellular medicine” was a reason why Traditional Chinese Medicine’s ideas about “holes, channels,” or “tunnels” distributed into the human body have been hard to become accepted.

Thus, the concept of organ in TCM includes the set of cellular and intracellular structures that carry out certain functions. For example, Lung involves all structures that facilitate diffusion and transport of gases (02 and C02) as well as oxidative phosphorylation and synthesis of ATP molecules. Therefore, regardless of the cause of “breathlessness” or shortness of breath from the modern perspective, the points on the channel of Lung are used to treat it.

CONCLUSIONS

We believe that ancient Chinese doctors understood the complexity of the human body and divided it into 2 morpho-functional parts: cells and intercellular spaces. Through the theory of “Channels and Collaterals,” those ancients described physiology and pathology of intercellular spaces. By the theory of “Zang and Fu Organs,” they described cellular physiology and pathology.39

ECIWO Biology Medicine

ECIWO Biology

E-System Of Acupuncture

Dr. Ac. T.T. Ang

A person may suffer from heart diseases, liver diseases, or diseases of other organs. How do you prevent, improve or counter these health problems without using modern medication? In this aspect, I would like to share with you about my 30 years of clinical experience in treating with Herbs And Food Cure Therapy System base on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) concepts further supported with the latest ECIWO concept.

When the body suffers malfunction or an injury, ECIWO healing system including herb and food cure remedy and acupuncture can assist body repair. The following chart shows a body healing system, based on this concept:

( A ). ANCIENT RESEARCH & DIAGRAMS IN THE STUDY OF ORGAN FORCE THAT CAN INDICATE THE CONTINUOUS GROWTH OF EMBRYO AND CONGENITAL QI IN THE HUMAN BODY.

Body Healing System by ECIWO Concept

If the heart suffers an malfunction or an injury, the ECIWO Biology Medicine or ECIWO Acupuncture can be applied to stimulate the heart organs. The heart then communicates with the small intestine, prolonging the vital energy force within the blood vessel, tissue of the eyes and the brain. This, in turn, influence the facial complexion with a reddish colour.

1.The Heart communicates to the Small Intestine and prolonging the vital energy force within the blood vesse, tissue of the eyes and the brain. They will influence the facial complexion with a reddish color. Reading and understanding the organ force and function can be read through the tongue. ECIWO Biology medicine & acupuncture stressed that selection of the food, herb or acupoint which has strong influence to the heart and small intestine providing continuous growth for the particular organs.

If the liver suffers malfunction and an injury, the ECIWO Biology Medicine & ECIWO acupuncture can be applied to stimulate the liver organs. The liver then communicates with the gall bladder, prolonging the life force of the eyes, the inner portions of the vertex, tendon and nail. This, in turn, influences the facial complexion with a greenish colour.

2.The Liver communicates to the Gall. Life force will prolong to the tendon and nail and they will influence the eyes and facial complexion with a greenish color.Reading and understanding the organ force and function can be read through the eyes. ECIWO Biology Medicine & Acupuncture stressed that the selection of the food, herb or acupoint which has strong influence to the liver and gall bladder providing continuous growth for the particular organs.

If the spleen suffers an injury, we can use ECIWO system or ECIWO acupuncture to stimulate the spleen organs. The spleen then communicates with the stomach, prolonging the growth force of the muscle tissues. This, in turn, influences the eyelids, mouth and facial complexion with a yellowish colour.

3. The spleen communicates to the Stomach and prolonging the growing force to the muscle and soft tissues. They will influence the eyelids, mouth and facial complexion with a yellowish color. Reading and understanding the organ force and function can be observed through the mouth and lips. ECIWO Biology Medicine and acupuncture stressed that the selection of the food, herb or acupoint which has strong influence to the spleen and stomach provides continuous growth for the particular organs.

If the lung suffers an injury, we can use ECIWO system or ECIWO acupuncture to stimulate the lung points. The liver would communicates with the large intestine, prolonging the energy force on the skin and body surface, This, in turn, influences the facial complexion with a whitish colour. Examination of the nose would indicate this organ force.

4. The Lung communicates to the Large Intestine and prolonging the energy force on the skin, hair and body surface. They will influence the facial complexion with a whitish color. Reading and understanding the organ force and function can be obtained from the nose.

If the kidney suffers an injury, we can use ECIWO system ECIWO acupuncture to stimulate the kidney. The Kidney then communicates with the urinary bladder, prolonging the vital force in t the hair and nerve system. This, in turn, influences the facial complexion with a blackish colour. Examination of the ears would indicate this organ force.

5. The Kidney communicates to the Urinary Bladder and prolonging vital force in the growing of bones, hair and nerve system. They will influence the facial complexion with a blackish color. Reading the understanding the organ force and function can be obtained from the ear.

Chart B shows the infection impairment of the body

By using positive stimulation massage, the injured part of the body can be repaired by self-adjustments of body’s immune system.

When there are functional disorders in the body, using ECIWO therapy, herbs or acupuncture massage will stimulate a response by the endocrine system. If Embryo System of herb therapy is used, remittance of the immune system will occur. The body, in turn, responds by carrying out self-adjustments.

When there is endocrine or organ disturbances, using ECIWO acupuncture and ECIWO or herb therapy will stimulate the balance of the body.

When there are tumors or cancers, Acupuncture-Micro surgery will be used to bring balance to the homeostatic system of the body. Otherwise, these diseases could result in the collapse of the Yin and Yang, which could be fatal.

(B). BODY HEALING SYSTEM BY ECIWO CONCEPT

Chart C shows the disharmony of the interior and exterior

By using positive stimulation, the upper portion of the trunk can carry out self-adjustments. This, in turn, leads to the elimination of symptoms like headache, sore throat, cough, asthma, pneumonia, dyspnea, cardiac pain, anxiety, mental disorder, and, metallic disorder, through the use of ECIWO, herb therapy or/and ECIWO acupuncture.

When it is used on the middle portion of the trunk, positive stimulation can lead to self-adjustments of that portion. Subsequently, ECIWO, hers therapy or/and ECIWO acupuncture will be able to counter symptoms like migraine, tinnitus, otitis media, deafness, blindness, angina pectoris, costal neuralgia, cholecystitis, hepatitis, and diabetes mellitus.

The lower portion of the trunk can also self-adjust after receiving positive stimulation. ECIWO, herb therapy or/and ECIWO acupuncture will then be used to prevent and eliminate symptoms like sore throat, deafness, poor vision, loss of hair, arthritis, spondylitis, neuritis lumbago, weakness of lower limb, nephritis, cystitis, impotence, menopathy, anusitis, hemorrhoid, diabetes mellitus, and metabolic disorder.

Open Chart

By using ECIWO herb pan-embryo system and acupuncture, and qigong healing, the immune system disorders, functional failures, and tumours or cancers can be helped by the self-adjustments of the immune system and homeostatic system. Otherwise, the disharmony of the interior and exterior will, eventually, lead to death.

Conclusion

From my many years of experience and my understanding of the latest Chinese Nature-cure System, I strongly recommend the above-mentioned methods and concepts. I am very hopeful of the future of Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture. Their alternative system of treatment is natural and highly effective. Moreover, the treatment with these methods is much more economical. In short, ECIWO Embryo System of Chinese medicine and Acupuncture will greatly benefit human kind.

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

Mrs. Obweger M. Austria Date: 25.5.35

Treatment And Course:

Mr. Obweger was hospitalised twice for several weeks. Each time for 10 days in intensive care. The Professor in-charge suggested he should undergo bypass operation, but the patient refused.

During the hospitalisation, the patient received treatment only with Heparin and Sedativum. The patient refused to take the tasteless food from the hospital and he requested to have his natural food prepared privately.

After a few weeks, Mr. Obweger came to my clinic in a very bad health condition. He could not walk without extreme pain in his chest and he had difficulty in breathing. I had to supply him with oxygen immediately. Mr. Obweger was advised to come for 7 days of ECIWO Acupuncture treatments (heart and stomach point), twice a day on the 2.MCB and the tibia with chickenleg needling.

Also, he needed to have 4 times bloodletting treatments for thromboses (microbiology). Besides, Mr Obweger was required to come for an oxygen-more-purpose-therapy for 2 hours a day from Prof. Dr. V.Ardenne.

After the treatment, Mr Obweger went back to Austria with an advice to take various types of herbal medicine. Two months after the first treatment, the patient came back to me to continue with another 9 days of ECIWO Acupuncture treatments.

Acupuncture and the Addictions

smoking addiction

Acupuncture has been used in mainland China and the Far East for many years in the treatment of addictions, primarily, hard drugs.

Acupuncture and Smoking

What are the common withdrawal symptoms associated to stop-smoking (without the help of acupuncture)?

Craving > 2 wks 70%
Depression < 4 wks60%
Restlessness < 4 wks60%
Poor concentration < 2 wks 60%

*Source: http//www.ash.org.uk/html/factsheets

What causes weight gain and craving after quitting?

The possibility of weight gain is often of particular concern to those who want to give up smoking. When nicotine, a chemical in cigarette smoke, leaves your body, you may experience:

” Short-term weight gain. The nicotine kept your body weight low, and when you quit smoking, your body returns to the weight it would have been had you never smoked.

” You might gain 3 to 5 pounds due to water retention during the first week after quitting.

” A need for fewer calories. After you stop smoking, you may use fewer calories than when you were smoking.

How can acupuncture help stop-smoking?

Probably the most common addiction the acupuncturist is called upon to treat is smoking. The basic principle as with all anti-addiction treatment is that the person should be willing to receive the help to give up – you cannot force someone to give up, nor should you, against their will.

The fundamental treatment is to stimulate acu-points which are capable of transmitting messages down nerve pathways to the brain, and instituting change in the chemistry of appetite.

If you take in a substance for long enough which is addictive, the encephalins or “brain chemical messengers” make room for it and allow it to become necessary to the chemical balance.

If you then remove the substance e.g., nicotine, and do not balance the chemistry, the brain is thrown into shock which causes what we all know as withdrawal symptoms (refer to table).

The acupuncture technique basically rebalances the chemistry, thus avoiding withdrawal symptoms. In effect, acupuncture balances and restores conditions to that which applied when you were a non-smoker.

In addition, it is also not uncommon for patients to leave the office feeling calm and relaxed. Patients usually won’t crave food, as when necessary, we will also treat the mouth and pancreas point.

Within a few hours your body begins to heal itself. The carbon monoxide and nicotine in your system rapidly disappears. Your heart and lungs begin to repair the damage caused by smoking. Your sense of taste and smell will return.

Your smoker’s hack will disappear and your digestion will return to normal. You will climb a flight of stairs without being winded. Best of all, you will feel alive, clear headed, full of energy, and breathing easier.

Very frequently, after acupuncture, many smokers also experience an unpleasant taste in the mouth, which gets aggravated with cigarettes. They will have no more desire to smoke.

Main Points Selected
ECIWO Lung – Lu 7 – H 7

United Nation’s Interview with Dr T T Ang

Founder of the Chinese Nature Cure Institute in Singapore, Dr. Ang explained how to preserve one’s health and promote self-healing by opting for a holistic approach based on an appropriate and personalized food diet which takes into account seasons and the person’s current own condition, the use of specific herbs, specific exercise, acupuncture, self-massage (acupressure) and meditation.

​He then presented the new Chinese medical approach based on the findings of Professor Yingqing Zhang of Shandong University (China) which demonstrate that the information of the entire organism is contained in embryo cells.

By stimulating precise acupuncture points, it is possible to activate the growth factors which ensure a proper cell differentiation and full development cycle. This makes it theoretically possible to repair damaged tissues and bones, re-establish normal biological cell processes including in tumours, regulate proper hormonal secretions, trigger body growth and balance body functions.

While research is still underway, Dr. Ang showed examples of remarkable results already achieved to-date in treating hard cases and heavy pathologies where all other treatments had failed. This has led to the development of “ECIWO-acupuncture” which complements traditional practice developed over thousands of years (see here-below the fourth question in the interview Dr. Ang gave to UN Special on the occasion of his lecture at the Palais des Nations).

Professor T.T. Ang began studying and exploring acupuncture in 1961, travelling extensively to various institutes and hospitals in Hong Kong and various regions of China. He is among the pioneer research fellows in the new field of ECIWO biology and its applications in medicine. T.T. Ang is also an expert in Taiji and Qigong.

Q:During your lecture you presented Chinese medicine as a holistic approach to health. Can you explain what this means and how people everywhere can apply the related principles to their lives for better health and well-being?

In Chinese medicine, we look at health as an integrated result of our food habits and lifestyles. Hence, our approach to health extends to eating suitable food and herbs, and incorporating exercises in our daily lives, to prevent illness, maintain good health, and heal the body from illness.

Food and herbs can be classified into cold, hot, or neutral properties. Through understanding their unique properties and applying these theories to the food we eat, we can adjust our “Zangfu imbalances” (i.e. imbalances created in some of the body’s main organs), which in turn helps in disease prevention.

Choosing the right exercises, too, can help adjust our bodies’ imbalances. Traditional forms of healing exercises such as Taichi and Qigong meditation are not only well known for their healing properties, but are also a good way to relax.

That’s probably why they are still widely practiced today in China and in many other countries. If need be, health will be restored with the help of other remedies, including the practice of acupuncture.

Could you say a few words on the basic theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)?

This theory, Zang Fu, is a description of the main vital organs in the body. Each Zang Fu in the body has an individual meridian which can be found along the hand or the foot.

Each meridian can be further classified under Yin or Yang (which represent opposite properties such as cold/hot, deficiency/excess or interior/exterior). Well-being depends on balancing Yin and Yang at all times. There are twelve regular meridians separated into three groups.

Each group is further divided into two subgroups, each consisting of a pair of meridians. All the meridians have an individual series of acupoints which can be found at different very specific locations in the body.

The first group, Tai Yin, consists of the Lung Meridian on the hand and the Spleen Meridian on the foot. Yang Ming consists of the Large Intestine Meridian on the hand and the Stomach Meridian on the foot. This group often relates to infectious diseases of the digestive system and to environmental or weather-related syndromes.

The second group, Shao Yin, consists of the Heart Meridian on the hand and the Kidney Meridian on the foot. Tai Yang consists of the Small Intestine Meridian on the hand and the Urinary Bladder Meridian on the foot.

This group often relates to circulation, the nervous system, and the reproductive system. The third group, Jue Yin, consists of the Pericardium Meridian on the hand and the Liver Meridian on the foot.

Shao Yang consists of the San Jiao Meridian on the hand and the Gall Bladder Meridian on the foot. This group often relates to the lymphatic system, immunity, the body’s defense system, and to vital systems for detoxification.

When there is a symptom, with TCM you often treat another organ (for example, in the case of a trigeminal pain for a patient, you treat the kidney). Can you explain why?

When a person suffers from illness or presents a series of symptoms, it can be due to an imbalance of a particular Zang Fu/organ within the body. The treatment can be done on the respective meridian or another location away from the affected area.

For example, in the case of trigeminal neuralgia, treatments can be made on the Shao Yang Gall Bladder Meridian, where the acupoints are located on the facial region, or acupoints in Shaoyang San Jiao Meridian, accompanied by the acupoints on Shao Yin Kidney Meridian such as Taixi (K3). The kidney, as a Zang Fu, controls the nerves in the entire body.

What are the ECIWO biology and the bio-holographic law of nature?

ECIWO, or Embryo Containing Information of the Whole Organism, is a biological theory which can be applied to all living organisms.

For example, each seed consists of the information equivalent to an embryo along with the “Life Force” of the plant. The quantity of seeds would reflect the life force of the fruit.

In practice, between a kiwi and an orange, the kiwi will have more life force as it contains more seeds than the orange. By consuming the fruit, a person introduces more life force into his body and will absorb the benefits of the fruit.

Similarly, this theory can be applied to the human body for diagnostic and treatment purposes, for example, to the Acupoints located on the Long Bones System or Metacarpal Bones System.

There are many ways to determine the life force of a human body, such as a person’s voice. In ancient China, before modern technology was available, a gentleman’s family would appoint a matchmaker to observe the number of siblings an ideal future daughter-in-law had, to determine the life force and fertility of the lady.

Between a leaf with many edges and a leaf that is rounded nicely, the many edges are the many life forces it contains.

Bio-holographic law explains the complete biological records found in any natural or- ganism of size and shape. The theory can be observed in the case of a human body, the tongue and the palm, ear, etc. It can be applied to relations between Zang Fu (main organs).

For example, a TCM physician can obtain a pulse diagnosis by palpation of the wrist and radial of the lower arm, also known as Cun Kou.

It is divided into three regions, each reflecting the upper body, such as lung, heart, or blood circulation system; middle part of the body trunk such as liver, gall bladder, stomach, spleen or digestive system; and lower body, such as kidney, urinary bladder, large intestine, or reproductive system.

Tongue diagnosis is another method where the different regions on the tongue reflect the different Zang Fu conditions the region is under. Very often, the above methods of diagnosis are practiced to determine the condition of a human body.

What is the difference between «classical acupuncture» and ECIWO acupuncture»?

In classical acupuncture, the main meridians from Traditional Chinese Medicine theory are used for health and treatment purposes.

In the practice of ECIWO Biology in acupuncture treatments, treatment includes the use of points outside the main meridians, such acupoints from the Long Bone System or Metacarpal Bone System. This often provides greater accuracy in diagnosis and treatment of ailments when used in combination with classical acupuncture techniques.

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.

Trachoma

Eyes
By Shandong Science And Technology Press (1985)

It is a chronic infectious disease caused by the virus. It is a very important infection on account of its disastrous complications and squaclae, which are responsible for many cases of partial or total blindness.

Symptoms and Signs

In mild cases, there is slight foreign body sensation in the eyes and the discharge is usually small in amount. Those of severe cases are feeling of stimulation sensation and much discharge associated with photophobia, lacrimation, inversion of lids and eyelashes. Corneal ulcer may also complicate.

Treatment

A Points: penetrate Sizhukong toward Yuyao, or Zanzhu toward Yuyao; puncture Sibai toward Jingming. Fengchi and Hegu penetration also required.

B Procedure: pinch up the skin around the point with the thumb and index finger of left hand, then insert the needle rapidly toward the other point. Twirl or scrape the needle.

Twirling the needles for the points of Fengchi and Hegu only.

Acupuncture is given once daily till cure.

For all points mentioned above needles should be retained in short duration.

C Case example:

Patient Song, a female, 65 years of age, a housewife.

Patient suffered from trachoma for 10 years. The symptoms were various with time and became more severe in recent days. Photophobia, lacrimation and itching of eyes were associated.

Examinations revealed trachoma II O.S. III O.D., inversion of eye lashes, much discharge was present. Patient’s symptoms were diminished after acupuncture given twice and almost after 5 remedies.

Remark

Trachoma belongs to the class of “Jiao Chuang” or “Su Chuang” in Chinese traditional medicine, which also reported its pathogenesis, symptology and treatment.

Ancient medical book “Essentials of Ophthalmology” considered: “Congestion of lids for years causes growth of Feng Su on the lips … heating of the stomach and the spleen causes growth of Feng Su, then gradually becomes a size of rice even a shape of red bay berry. Those granular substances rub the pupil of eyes.” The treatments for it are puncturing the granules with needle … iron it if possible, better result will be presented. Much symptoms and signs had been in old medical books as follows in this disease, there are granules (as chestnut) on the lids which are caused by evil in the lungs, heat in the large intestine and wind in the liver.

From the review above, it is known that the pathogenesis is related to the following factors: evil heat in Yangming, evil accumulated in lungs, liver-heat stirring inside, gall-bladder fire moving upward and obstructing the channels, blood stasis etc. The principles of treatment therefore are clearing the heat, detoxification, promoting the blood circulation and eliminating phlegm.

Puncture of Zanzhu, Sizhukong, Sibai and Jingming may expel the local channels and eliminate phlegm.

Puncture of Hegu can purge Yangming evil heat and detoxicate the evil in the lungs. Therefore, prescription given above is useful to treating trachoma.

Acupuncture for Varicose 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.
