Acupuncture treatment of bronchitis

Bronchitis refers to the trachea, bronchial mucosa and chronic non-specific inflammation of the surrounding tissue. Bronchitis, the main cause of chronic non-specific bronchial inflammation and recurrent viral infection bacteria. When the temperature drops, ischemic airway spasm of small blood vessels, defense function decline in favor of pathogenic; smoke and dust, air pollution and other chronic stimulation also be the disease; smoking bronchial spasm, mucosal variation, reduce cilia movement, increased mucus secretion favorable infection; allergic factors also have a certain relationship.
In winter, cold weather, the air is dry, easy airway resistance decreased. Especially in patients with chronic bronchitis due to long-term chronic bronchitis, airway epithelium may have some damage to the organization of the entire airway, which are some of the pathological changes are more prone to infection. Chronic bronchitis slow onset, longer duration, recurrent gradually increased. The main symptoms are cough, sputum, wheezing or shortness of breath, especially early in the morning or at night as the most important, increased sputum volume. When emphysema, in addition to a cough, sputum, wheezing and other symptoms, the gradual emergence of dyspnea. Initially in the labor only when shortness of breath, with the progression of the disease, after resting also feel short of breath.
Bronchitis is the inflammation of the bronchial pulmonary medium. Acute bronchitis is usually caused by a viral or bacterial infection. It can last for days or weeks. Chronic bronchitis is not necessarily caused by an infection, it may be part of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. COPD refers to two consecutive years, a cough lasting more than three months sputum.
1. Acute Bronchitis
Early onset of acute bronchitis usually presented upper respiratory tract infection symptoms, patients often have nasal congestion, runny, sore throat and hoarseness and other clinical manifestations. The relatively minor symptoms, but there may be fever, chills, general fatigue, and itchy throat conscious and irritating cough and chest pain. Early sputum are small, but difficult to cough up sputum, the sputum may be 2 to 3 days into mucinous purulent mucus. Patients with cold, cold air or irritant gases can exacerbate or induce cough cough. Early morning or at night when the patient coughs often more significant. Coughing for paroxysmal, persistent cough and sometimes was. Often accompanied by nausea, vomiting and chest, abdominal muscle pain, severe cough. If accompanied by bronchospasm, may have wheezing and shortness of breath. Generally, acute bronchitis course there is a certain self-limiting, symptoms may subside in 4-5 days, but the cough may be extended for several weeks.
Physical examination can sometimes be found in dry rales, cough disappeared; the bottom of the lungs moist rales can be heard even when accompanied by bronchospasm, wheezing can be heard. White blood cell count is usually normal, chest X-ray examination and no abnormal findings.
2. Chronic bronchitis
Chronic bronchitis, chronic cough refers excluding various other reasons, patients annually chronic cough, sputum more than three months, and for two consecutive years. It is not necessarily accompanied by persistent airflow limitation.
(1) long-term cough, repeated, gradually worsening cough is a prominent manifestation of this disease. The incidence of light only in the winter season, especially early in the morning to get up around the most obvious, daytime cough less. Summer and autumn, cough, decreased or disappeared. Critically ill patients are the four seasons cough, increased winter, day and night cough, sooner or later is particularly intense.
(2) General sputum expectoration white foamy mucus, morning more often due to sticky and difficult to spit. The rapidly increasing symptoms of infection or after exposure to cold, increased sputum volume, viscosity increase, or yellow purulent sputum or accompanied by wheezing. Occasionalism drama cough and bloody sputum.
(3) When combined with respiratory infections, asthma, due to bronchial mucosa congestion and edema, mucus obstruction and bronchial stenosis, can produce asthma (wheezing) symptoms. Patients with asthma occurs song in the throat when breathing, wheeze when lung auscultation.
(4) repeated infection or sudden change in temperature during the cold season, prone to repeated respiratory infections. In this case aggravated asthma patients, sputum volume increased significantly, and purulent, accompanied by malaise, chills, fever. Lungs moist sound, check white blood cell count increased and so on. Repeated respiratory infections, especially easy to make the elderly patient’s condition deteriorated, must be full attention.
Early signs of the disease more non-specific, at the bottom of the lungs most patients can hear a little wet or dry rales. Sometimes after you cough or sputum may temporarily disappear. Long-term cases can be found in emphysema onset of signs.
Chronic bronchitis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, bronchial asthma relationship between: chronic bronchitis and emphysema and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease closely related to clinical patients with cough, sputum and other symptoms time, and can not immediately be diagnosed COPD. If the patient only “chronic bronchitis” and / or “emphysema” clinical manifestations, without persistent airflow limitation, you can not be diagnosed as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, the patient can only be diagnosed as “chronic bronchitis” and / or “emphysema.” However, if the lung function in patients prompted persistent airflow limitation, the diagnosis of COPD. Some patients suffering from bronchial asthma, but also can be complicated by chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Such as bronchial asthma patients are often exposed to irritating substances, such as smoking, it can also occur cough and sputum, and cough and sputum is an important feature of chronic bronchitis. These patients can be diagnosed as “asthmatic bronchitis.”
Chinese medicine believes bronchitis pathogenesis Yes. Evils invasion and lung, spleen, kidney three dirty dysfunction, is the main cause of this disease.

Acupuncture Treatment of frequent urination

A variety of reasons can cause increased frequency of urination, but no pain, also known as frequent urination. Causes more frequent urination, including neuropsychological factors, weak after the illness, parasites. Chinese medicine, frequent urination in children is mainly due to physical weakness, kidney qi, bladder constraint incompetence, not due to its chemical declared. In addition too tired Insufficiency two dirty all true, is not on the virtual system, the virtual earth can not make water, air bladder weakness flowers, and frequent urination occurs. Therefore, frequent urination mostly Xu Zheng, need to rest, eat foods rich in plant organic active alkali foods, eat less meat, eat more vegetables. Causes more frequent urination, urinary tract infections are the most common, mainly the elderly frequent urination is an enlarged prostate, frequent urination is the main reason for pregnant women due to the uterus oppression bladder, frequent urination reasons children: breast-fed infants, into the water more the bladder capacity is small, up to 20 times a day to urinate, urinating about 15 times the age of 1 day to preschool and school-age children will urinate 6-7 times a day, as compared with urinary frequency excessive urination. Many reasons for the occurrence of frequent urination, should be combined with specific manifestations and laboratory tests, comprehensive analysis, find out why.
Male  frequent urination reasons
Chronic prostatitis symptoms: lower abdominal bulge, urinary frequency, urinary dripping white, endless urinate, frequent urination, hematuria, urinary fine, difficulty urinating. Caused urethritis, Seminal and complications such as epididymitis, impotence except outside part due to pathological changes in patients with chronic prostate sclerosis, bladder neck sclerosis, often makes the development of urinary tract obstruction after secretion uremia, chronic prostatitis accompanying dysfunction adversely affect sperm can cause reduced fertility.
Symptoms of BPH: benign prostatic hyperplasia (hypertrophy) is a clinical common disease in older men was high trend, in middle age, the prostate secretory function declining, causing prostate hyperplasia (hypertrophy), after compression of the urethra, causing night more frequent urination, urinary urgency, urinary drip Lek, sexual dysfunction and other issues. Urinary tract obstruction, causing urination when the prostate continues to increase, the urethra causing urinary retention and uremia oppression.
Urethritis symptoms: frequent urination, urgency, dysuria, dripping white, swelling, urinary tract irritation, urinary burning, hematuria, dysuria. Urethritis was high trend in modern men, the pathogen invades the urethral mucosa, continue to breed, destroy adjacent normal tissue structure caused by prostatitis, Seminal, epididymitis, orchitis.
Female  frequent urination reasons
1, neuropsychiatric urinary frequency. Frequent urination caused by mental factors, the general performance too uneven, obviously the role of the spirit “signs.” Frequent urination caused by mental stress, the body will not cause serious health consequences. Frequent urination affect learning, work, rest, could regulate psychotherapy and drug therapy nerves. In particular, some long-term, severe urinary frequency, should be carefully carried out the inspection, can not be easily diagnosed neuropsychiatric causes frequent urination.
2, non-inflammatory stimuli. Such as urinary tract stones and foreign matter.
3, inflammation, acute cystitis, tuberculosis cystitis, urethritis, pyelonephritis, prostatitis, genital go far possible causes of frequent urination also appear. In inflammation, may be frequent urination, urgency, dysuria simultaneously, known as the urinary tract irritation.
4, reduced bladder capacity, such as bladder lesions, pregnancy increased uterine pressure, tuberculosis, bladder contracture or large bladder calculi.
Chinese medicine will be listed as one of the symptoms of urinary frequency, “deficiency of the kidney” of. When a person’s physical decline is prone to urinary frequency phenomenon, easily accompanied by sexual dysfunction. Physical deterioration and functional decline of frequent urination problem is the tension in the bladder. Studies have shown that androgen action is not just limited to the maintenance of sexual function, physical and psychological impact on people is broad and far-reaching. Impact on androgen on muscle tissues of the body, it can maintain the tension of the muscle fibers. The bladder is a hollow container made of smooth muscle, and its role is to store urine, which itself has very good scalability. When the urine reaches a certain amount, which produces a pressure in excess of the tolerance of the bladder, the person will have to urinate, need to urinate. When physical, sexual dysfunction, decreased levels of androgens, urinary bladder smooth muscle fiber tension also declined, making the bladder flexibility decreases. When the pressure of urine accumulated to an amount no less than in the past for a long time already and it generates the same as before, which had to urinate demand, frequent urination.
If frequent urination occurs, the amount of each urination is not much (except for urinary tract infection) is caused by the above reasons. If frequent urination and also a lot of urine, we must guard against diabetes, uremia and other early cases, and this time, it should go to the hospital for further examination.
TCM diagnostic criteria: ① deficiency type: nocturnal polyuria, urine long, low back pain, tinnitus, occasionally lower extremity edema, pale, thin white fur, pulse delay, thin; ② spleen and kidney deficiency: urine frequency, more in particular at night, cold limbs, body tired Shenpi, dizziness, tinnitus, weak knees, poor appetite, loose stools, pale tongue, slow pulse or fine. Chinese medicine believes that people 40 years of age, kidney gradually decline, loss of bladder in the warmth, not the normal gasification, liquid water loss system, the basic principle is to support the treatment of Yuanyang. Its pathogenesis mostly nephron deficiency, mainly due to kidney disease caused by roadway is not solid; visible with age kidney by the gloom and doom, gasification function also will decline, the elderly and the amount of more frequent urination, urine color innocence, it is insufficient yang, gasification loss Secretary of performance. At the same time there will be chills, cold limbs, knees numbness, weakness and other symptoms of lumbar. Therefore, dialectical Shi Zhiyi kidney Yiyang, chemical gas diuresis. Bladder heat: frequent urination, urgency, dysuria, urethral burning sensation, urine less, the color yellow and cloudy and sticky, dry mouth, abdominal distension, constipation, red tongue, yellow greasy moss, pulse a few slip.Yin deficiency: frequent urination and short yellow, vertigo, tinnitus, dry mouth and throat, thirst hi drink, zygomatic red hot flashes, irritability, can not sleep, backache, knee pain, dizziness, tinnitus, Gu Zheng labor heat, five upset hot, night sweats stool induration, red tongue, little fluid, rapid pulse.Kidney qi: frequent urination less urine, nocturnal enuresis, poor complexion, dizziness, ringing in the ears, shortness of breath, lassitude, weakness, limbs not warm, pale tongue, thin white fur, weak pulse delay.Lung and spleen-deficiency: frequent urination clear long, left or with urinary incontinence, and see pale lips and mouth, cough spit salivation, dizziness, shortness of breath, cold body, mental fatigue, pale tongue white, pulse weak urine long, nocturia. more chills cold limbs, weak soft sputum or back pain.

Close conformity with the inner tendon and outer liner inside the sheath to the tendon fibers, combined together with the bone surface, with a fixed, protect and lubricate the tendon to rub against or oppression action. Sheath with the maintenance of normal flexion and finger tendon sliding function. When the hand is fixed in position to make repeated, excessive activity, so that between the tendon and tendon sheath often friction, resulting in edema, fibrosis, causes lumen stenosis. Due to activities within the tendon sheath, through a narrow channel diameter, so pain and movement disorders, which is tenosynovitis. Often occurs in the fingers of the palm, risk refers to the redness, swelling, pain, heat signs, flexion like, because it will cause pain in the fingers straight. If not promptly treated, after purulent infection, loss of finger tendon necrosis will make active function, pus also flowing into the adjacent finger tendon sheath and palm gap, resulting in total hand disability.
Radial styloid process stenosing tenosynovitis because of wrist and finger joints in one position for long been engaged in activities to sheath long been worn. Since the abductor pollicis longus and extensor hallucis brevis muscle while being constrained within the sheath, combined with tendon groove narrow, uneven bottom surface, the groove surface covering the transverse carpal ligament. Because of injuries, excessive strain (notably in the hand and fingers), osteoarthritis, some of the autoimmune diseases, and even infection may also cause.

Acupuncture treatment of hemorrhoids

Acupuncture treatment of hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids is a common anorectal disease, treatment is very complex, because of its pathological features, resulting in its repeated attacks more difficult to cure. Hemorrhoids is a common disease located in the anal region, any age can be the disease, but with age, the incidence rate increased gradually. Hemorrhoids are pathological hypertrophy of anal cushions. Hemorrhoids anal zigzag line as the boundary is divided into internal hemorrhoids and external hemorrhoids. Symptoms of external hemorrhoids itching to pain based. The places hemorrhoids and bleeding hemorrhoids prolapse after they dominated.
About the cause of hemorrhoids There are two main theories. The first is the doctrine of varicose veins, hemorrhoids is that the lower rectal mucosa and anal bolus venous plexus congestion, expansion and buckling under the skin formed. However, currently the most widely accepted theory is that the anal cushions down doctrine that hemorrhoids anal canal was originally part of the normal anatomy, namely vascular cushions are above the dentate line and ring the cavernous tissue with 1.5cm. Only anal cushion tissue and associated with abnormal symptoms, hemorrhoids can be called only in need of treatment, the treatment aims to relieve symptoms rather than eliminate hemorrhoids body. Many predisposing factors of hemorrhoids, constipation which, long-term drinking, eating a lot of spicy food and sedentary for a long is a major incentive.
Hemorrhoids occur in different parts of the divided internal hemorrhoids, external hemorrhoids, mixed hemorrhoids. In the anal skin and rectal mucosa junction there is a visible jagged lines called the dentate line of the anal canal. In internal hemorrhoids above the dentate line is, below the dentate line of external hemorrhoids can be divided into connective tissue external hemorrhoids, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, thrombotic external hemorrhoids; both internal hemorrhoids and external hemorrhoids is mixed hemorrhoids, internal hemorrhoids is through the venous plexus corresponding external hemorrhoids integration, namely the upper and lower venous plexus anastomosis, mixed hemorrhoids prolapse outside the anus, when was plum-shaped, it called an annular hemorrhoids, sphincter if they are incarcerated, incarcerated hemorrhoid formation.
Causes of hemorrhoids
1, the genetic relationship: congenital vein wall weakness, reduced resistance, can not tolerate intravascular pressure, thus gradually expanded.
2, local irritation and diet: anal cold, heat, constipation, diarrhea, excessive drinking and eating spicy food, can stimulate the anus and rectum, hemorrhoid venous plexus congestion, affecting venous return, resulting in venous wall resistance power drops.
3, professional relationships: people long standing or sitting for long-term weight-bearing long journey, affecting venous return, slow blood flow to the pelvic and abdominal organ congestion, caused by excessive filling hemorrhoid veins, vein wall tension decreased, easily bleeding blood vessels dilate, because of lack of exercise, decreased bowel, stool slow down or habitual constipation, can stimulate the oppression and veins, so that local congestion and blood reflux disorder, caused by increased pressure inside hemorrhoid veins, vein wall resistance is reduced.
4, anal infection: hemorrhoid venous plexus due to acute and chronic infection inflammation, fibrosis of the vein wall elastic tissue gradually becomes weaker, less resistance, caused varicose expanded, plus other reasons, varicose veins gradually increased, to generate block hemorrhoids .
Clinical manifestations. Blood in the stool: painless intermittent spotting its characteristics, but also internal hemorrhoids or mixed hemorrhoid common early symptoms of blood in the stool, hemorrhoids do not cause bleeding. Light mostly on the stool blood then blood, a severe jet-like bleeding, blood in the stool can often stop on their own after a few days it is very important for diagnosis. If long-term repeated bleeding, anemia clinical is not uncommon, and bleeding disorders should be differentiated. Falling pain: pain fall is mainly manifested symptoms of external hemorrhoids, internal hemorrhoids or mixed hemorrhoid prolapse when incarcerated, edema infection, necrosis, often resulting in severe pain fall. Hemorrhoids prolapse: hemorrhoids prolapse is the main symptoms of advanced hemorrhoids, hemorrhoids body increases due to late, when the gradual separation of the muscle is pushed outside the anus defecating. Only light in the stool prolapse, and after self-reply. When severe abdominal pressure that is is a little anal prolapse, abdominal pressure such as coughing and other travel increased slightly block hemorrhoids prolapse can seriously affect the normal work and life. Itching: advanced hemorrhoids prolapsed hemorrhoids and anal sphincter relaxation block, often discharge flow due to stimulate secretions often have itching around the anus discomfort, and even skin eczema, the patient is extremely uncomfortable. Depending on the symptoms and the degree of harm to human health hemorrhoids can be divided into three phases. Ⅰ period: no pain, mainly for blood, increased secretions, mainly itching. Ⅱ period: there is blood in the stool, hemorrhoids prolapse with defecation, but it can also accept their own. Stage Ⅲ (also known as late) hemorrhoids prolapse anal estuary or estuary each defecation anus, can not also accept their own, must return to Satisfy. Hemorrhoids light gives the normal inconvenience of life, severe health effects, such as blood in the stool course of time, can cause varying degrees of poor, even hemorrhagic shock, life-threatening, hemorrhoids necrosis, severe infection, can cause the body through the blood system infection, serious consequences, thus suffering from hemorrhoids for a positive response.
Chinese medicine believes that the reason for the formation of hemorrhoids disease.
1. weak organs reasons: virtual organs, trauma rheumatism, intrinsic toxic heat, resulting in blood fall, gather for the anus, places stagnation lingers.
2. Diet Cause: diet fed, excessive consumption of fatty meat broiled Bo, prone to wet heat accumulation; eat lots of liquor and chili, pepper, ginger, onion, garlic, cinnamon and other hot spices, can stimulate the anal rectal mucosa, so that congestion burning.
3. Constipation: due to chronic constipation, fecal accumulation rectum, can make blood around blocked into stasis hemorrhoids.
4. Diarrhea Jiu Li reasons: because of dysentery so long time to vent his temper depletion, the lung is also affected, leading to the large intestine of the gas shortage, so the blood gas injection, wet muddy gather in the anus.
5. sedentary a long line and a negative force travel reasons: sedentary long standing so that blood does not and, the travel load and empty gas consumption, both so that blood cult poison stasis in the anus.
6. The emotional disorders cause: excessive injury glad heart, anger is liver injury, moody, blood-invasive colon, colorectal integrated into block generation hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoids are longer than the anus, a long time can be gradually increased, and even the anus to constipation, then after the blood flow due to excessive bleeding, long the injury in the air, so the patient can be seen looking minimalist, white lips, less gas fatigue pulse thin and weak. External hemorrhoids are around the anus. When pain itch. Moss thin yellow and dry, pulse a few strings. Select acupuncture points: changqiang, chengsan, sanyinjiao, huiyang, erbai, taichong, weizhong, fuliu, yaoyangguan, dachangshu. Needle with diarrhea, chronic illness caused by virtual persons moxibustion. In yinjiao point, if found to have a small lump of a grain of rice, with Needle prick, releasing a small amount of blood can be.
