In case of pollen, dust mites, cold air, etc., occur nasal itching, nasal congestion, and continuous sneezing, watery nasal discharge. The disease often have significant genetic allergies. Most patients appear before the age of 20, up to 10% of children and 20 percent of teenagers suffer from perennial rhinitis, most of which are allergic. About 75% of children with asthma also have the disease due to nasal congestion, mouth breathing patient had, from the mouth directly inhaled allergens more, therefore, can aggravate asthma. These patients are mostly physical treatment, often cold, cold disease, particularly when abrupt climate change significantly; secondly, more clear nasal discharge, nasal itching, sneezing, nasal edema, pallor and other symptoms, to cold, to virtual characterized .
Sneezing, itchy nose, runny nose and nasal congestion is the most common of the four symptoms.

Thus, acupuncture treatment of allergic rhinitis rapid onset. But generally require multiple treatments in order to achieve complete desensitization effect.
Chinese medicine believes that the occurrence of the disease unrelated to bacteria and viruses, is due to physical factors, physical function decreased. Lung and spleen qi deficiency, made too sensitive to external stimuli. Because lung, spleen, kidney three dirty deficiency, lack of righteousness, different gas exogenous cold caused. Pathogenesis of allergic rhinitis are: lung deficiency, so taking antibiotics ineffective. Hormones only temporarily reduces the tissue response to allergens, but also reduces the body’s resistance, it should avoid long-term use of allergy medication.
This can only be offset by an allergic reaction to relieve symptoms rather than treating the underlying. Therefore, drug therapy ineffective, the correct treatment is to improve the body’s allergic condition, eliminate allergens effect on the body, the eradication of allergies.

Centralized situation may exist. Clinical classification according to the choice of treatment.
Chinese medicine that belongs to allergic rhinitis, cold evil outside attack, committed and nasal orifices, pathogen Competing, lung barrier, fluid stops running. In addition, the spleen-deficiency lung qi. The root of the gas in the kidney, kidney barrier, gas barrier, yang consumption, Feng Xie invade the body and cause disease. Allergic rhinitis manifestations in the lungs, which is closely related to the pathological changes of spleen and kidney.
Studies suggest that immune function and lung, spleen, kidney three dirty closely related wasting, all causes of lung, spleen, kidney wasting any dirty, can affect the body’s immune function.

Floaters intraocular phenomenon, symptoms of visual field to see the shadow of the object floating. These objects may be dot, strip, mesh, one or more occur together. These objects were floating in the vitreous, the eye is moved with the rotation, as a result of a mosquito flying in front of the vast majority of floaters does not affect normal visual function, but if shadows appear a lot more pieces, or concurrent photophobia, pain, excessive secretion of tears, visual field defects and other phenomena, or who suffers from high myopia, diabetes, hypertension and other diseases, there may be a serious eye diseases (such as retinal detachment, vitreous hemorrhage) sign.
Black spots will appear in front of the patient, and will be with the rotation of the eye and flying, like flying mosquitoes in general, the shape of round, oval, point, line and so on. Floaters often occurs in the elderly over 40 years of age, patients with high myopia, and had a cataract surgery, others such as inflammation or retinal vascular lesions in the eye, will form the disease. Most floaters are benign, or “physiological floaters”, which is characterized by: If the patient has two floaters phenomenon, can not determine which one eye floaters, if after a period of time, these phenomena do not increase or produce changes, floaters position is fixed, then mostly benign.
Western medicine ophthalmology floaters can be divided into “physiological floaters”, “pathological floaters.” Physiological floaters, about 80% of the vitreous floaters formed tissue hydration, treatment may not be required, is a physiological floaters, mainly due to residues from the vitreous.

Hypertensive patients must wait before they can be operated with normal blood pressure, people over age 60 have some risk, security and rehabilitation rate of surgery has been a big problem.
Chinese medicine believes that the cause of floaters: liver and kidney loss, blood stasis, phlegm body aggregate rise, chronic illness weakness related to the treatment of the liver and kidney, eliminate stasis, phlegm and qi nourishing addition to proceed. Liver and kidney fine blood; excessive bleeding, anemia; sad, depressed, angry, anger Wang, wear and tear gas inside; or blood heat, blood stasis; or heat, sewage rising; sleepy or phlegm.

Bronchial asthma is a chronic airway inflammation by a variety of cells, in particular mast cells, eosinophils and T lymphocytes participation. Is a serious threat to people’s health major chronic diseases, there are around 100 million people suffer from the disease; the majority of patients with early or mild episodes of coughing and chest tightness as the main performance, and over the years, eventually becoming who survived the onset of patients are often forced to take a seat or in a sitting position, respiratory effort, dry cough or cough a lot of white foamy sputum, increased heart rate, sweating, and even cyanosis. Have seizures or exacerbation or Yuhan spring and autumn, at night or early morning common law. Whether early or mild or aged patients with chronic symptoms of asthma attack within minutes, several hours to several days after using bronchodilators relieve. Long-term recurrent and secondary infection can be more complicated with chronic bronchitis, emphysema, bronchiectasis, interstitial pneumonia, pulmonary fibrosis, pneumothorax, mediastinal emphysema, atelectasis and pulmonary heart disease. Chest X-ray examination; bronchial provocation test or exercise test can be confirmed. Asthma and polygenic genetic, relatives of patients with asthma prevalence in population prevalence, and the closer the genetic relationship is, the higher prevalence; the more severely ill patients, their relatives prevalence rate is also higher.
Currently asthma is a chronic airway inflammatory disease that potentially disease-based, we usually refer to inflammation and bacterial and viral infections caused by difference. Such non-specific inflammation, or what we call allergic inflammation. Due to the presence of allergic asthma airway inflammation, bronchial cause increased sensitivity to external stimuli, when exposed to a variety of external stimuli, prone to contraction of bronchial reaction, manifested as episodes of respiratory difficulties.

Asthma is divided into virtual, real two categories. Case is divided into cold, heat, deficiency is divided lung, spleen, kidney, is also more common clinical reality mixed patients. In deficiency, since the course of a long, dirty lesions often involve two or three dirty both sick, so deficiency is the most common clinical spleen and both lungs and kidney deficiency imaginary. In this syndrome type based on the “First treat asthma, and pay attention to the adjustment organs, prevent recurrence,” the treatment of ideas.
