Acupuncture treatment of strabismus

Acupuncture treatment of strabismus

Strabismus refers to the two goals can not be watching, is extraocular muscle disease. Strabismus can be divided into common nature and paralytic strabismus two categories. Strabismus can occur within the ramp may be oblique, but no eye movement disorder, no diplopia main clinical features; paralytic strabismus, there are limited eye movement, diplopia, and vertigo, nausea, eye pain, photophobia . Or when visual, three-dimensional feel poor, unsteady gait, insomnia and other symptoms. Also belong to one of strabismus affect the beauty of the disorder. Because of the complex causes of strabismus, except for the cause and surgical treatment of unknown etiology, there is no ideal methods of modern Western medicine.
Strabismus people because eye position is not correct, the image of the object falls on the position of the center of the macula outside, depending on the material occurs diplopia. Or because the patient long-term perspective by looking at one eye, the other eye’s image is suppressed to stop development, leading to disuse vision loss, resulting in amblyopia, or even the loss of visual function and binocular stereo vision monocular
Causes symptoms of strabismus
1. congenital anomalies (birth GENETIC accidental injuries, etc.): not a simple genetic congenital anomalies, congenital anomalies further comprising a head injury when a child is born like this and more from the outside perspective innate location of extraocular muscle abnormalities , extraocular muscle itself dysplasia, or dominant muscle paralysis caused. In addition, there are genetic factors strabismus in families are not all the members of this defect is often indirect genetic to the next generation of their children. Generally occurred within 6 months of life, said strabismus congenital strabismus, binocular vision does not have to establish the basic conditions. Development of visual function damaging.
2. Adjust and refractive errors cause: a certain excessive muscle development or hypoplasia, abnormal extraocular muscle attachment points. Orbital fascia structural abnormalities, can lead to muscle imbalance and strabismus. Because children’s physical development is not perfect: children, especially infants and young children imperfect development of binocular vision, not a good coordination of the extraocular muscles, any unstable factors can induce the occurrence of strabismus.
The main symptom of strabismus
1. After a long time as often headache, eye pain, photophobia, which is due to the continued use of the reserve force neuromuscular caused muscle fatigue.
2. When reading illegible or overlapping, serial, sometimes there may be intermittent diplopia, intermittent strabismus, if a single glance but feel clear, effort, and even the occurrence of binocular vision disorders.
3. Three-dimensional feeling bad, it can not determine the location and distance of space objects precisely. Heterophoria also radioactive neurological symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, insomnia, eyelid and conjunctival congestion and other symptoms.
Western medicine treatment of strabismus, first for amblyopia, to promote two good visual development, followed by correction of oblique eye position. Strabismus treatment methods include: wearing glasses, wearing goggles, the integrated use of eye Orthoptic training, eye muscle surgery or the method. Wear goggles amblyopia is strabismus caused. Orthoptic use of the instrument is to strengthen eye movements. Eye muscle surgery include shorter or relax outside one or two eye muscle in one or more muscle. Mild strabismus can wear “prism glasses” perspective correction to people because eye position is not correct, the image of the object falls on the position of the center of the macula outside, depending on the material occurs diplopia. Or because the patient long-term perspective by looking at one eye, the other eye’s image is suppressed to stop development, leading to disuse vision loss, resulting in amblyopia, or even the loss of binocular stereo vision and monocular visual function.
Chinese medicine will be divided into perspective
1. liver blood deficiency type: oblique eyes, and the incidence of febrile convulsions related to dry eye photophobia, rash, headache, pain, dreams, veins thin string. Thin white fur. Select acupuncture points:ganshu, danshu, neiguan, baihui.
2. Weak temper type: oblique eyes, blurred vision, pale (white) white, less satisfied Shen Juan, dizziness, body lean, when loose stools, weak pulse or slow, thin white fur. Acupuncture point selection:pishu, weishu, zhongwan, baihui, neiguan, zusanli.

For esotropia treatment options Point:1.tongziliao, fengchi, sibai, taichong. 2. qiuhou, taiyang, muchuang, waiguan. 3. sizhukong, yuyao, dazhui, guangming. Exotropia acupuncture point selection:1. jingming, meizhong, yuyao, hegu. 2. zanzhu, fengchi, sibai, taichong. 3. xiajingming, guangming, qucha, jinggu. Exotropia is more common in children with strabismus type, and more with myopia, astigmatism related, but if hyperopia is high, there will be exotropia. If strabismus is below 15 degrees, most people do not perceive. But as long as careful observation, or strabismus can be checked out: If a man sitting with your face, always have one eye watching the oblique side, as if absent-minded like, this is probably exotropia patients.  Information about the acupuncture treatment of  strabismus Please call Adelaide Yihong Acupuncture Clinic or visit our website atwww.adelaideacupuncture.com.au

Mouth ulcers, refers to the mucous membranes of the mouth lips, tongue, cheeks and palate and other soft tissue at the occurrence of single or multiple yellow-white circular or oval ulcers point in eating, drinking, brushing teeth, even when speaking to touch ulcer will feel significant pain or burning sensation, some patients prone to repeated attacks. The disease is one of the most common oral mucosal diseases. In his youth, a lot of mouth ulcers because in the process of eating, teeth against the inner wall of the oral mucosal epithelial surface of the tongue or chew damage. As many bacteria in the mouth, bacteria into the wound site exposed connective tissue complex biological and chemical action ulcer formation, thereby forming a mouth ulcers. But this is only the existence of an oral ulcer formed one of the reasons, do not rule out other oral ulcers pathogenic factors caused by the cause of the problem.
That the general theory of Western medicine, recurrent oral ulcers and immunity has a very close relationship. Some patients showed immune deficiency, some patients is manifested as an autoimmune response, which is due to various factors, so that the body’s normal immune system of their own tissue antigens to produce immune response, which leads to tissue destruction and disease. Secondly, there is a genetic relationship, in the clinic, the incidence of recurrent oral ulcers, with a clear familial tendency, they often see parents if one or more parties with recurrent oral ulcers, then their children than the average person more vulnerable to disease. In addition, the onset of recurrent oral ulcers, often with a number of diseases or symptoms related to digestive diseases such as gastric ulcer, duodenal ulcer, chronic or persistent hepatitis, colitis, anemia addition, the partial eclipse, indigestion, diarrhea , fever, lack of sleep, fatigue, mental stress, work pressure, menstrual cycle changes, and so on. With one or more active factors, alternating, overlapping appeared decreased immunity, immune dysfunction, thus causing recurrent oral ulcers frequent seizures. Oral ulcers are divided into the following types:
1. Minor oral ulcers: 80 per cent of patients with oral ulcers, are of this type when the majority of patients with early onset. Ulcers occur in the lips, tongue, buccal mucosa. Since the beginning of oral ulcers focal mucosal congestion and edema, miliary red, burning clear, followed by the formation of superficial ulcers, round or oval, diameter <5mm. About 5d ulcers began to heal, then ulcers formation of granulation tissue, reduced wound, swelling subsided, and pain relief. About 7 to 10d ulcer healing, leaving no scar. Ulcers usually 3-5, scattered. Gap of ulcer recurrence ranging from half to several months, and some patients will appear one after another, delayed healing situation. Some patients have more regular cycles, such as the onset of menstruation, or after the onset of constant fatigue. Usually no obvious symptoms and signs.
2. Severe oral ulcers: recurrent necrotic mucosal glands or gland weeks aphthous stomatitis week. Large and deep ulcers, healing or scar tissue defects can be formed, it is also known as recurrent aphthous ulcer scar. This type accounts for about 8%. It occurs in adolescence. Large and deep ulcers, like “crater” shape, can be as deep submucosal glands and glandular tissues, may be greater than the diameter of 1cm, tissue swelling around the ulcer slightly elevated basal micro hard surface greyish yellow or gray pseudomembranous necrotic tissue. Ulcer duration longer, up to 1-2 months or longer. Usually 1-2 ulcer, but appear in the healing process can be one or several small ulcers. Severe pain, the prognosis may leave scarring. Initial occur in the mouth, followed by migration trends have to back of the mouth. It occurred in the back of the mouth such as the tongue stunned arch, soft palate junction can cause tissue defects affecting speech and swallowing. May be associated with general malaise, local lymph node swelling. In previous ulcer can heal at relapse.
3. Herpetiformis oral ulcers ulcers: also known as aphthous stomatitis type, accounting for about 10% of patients with oral ulcers. Mainly in adult women, but smaller diameter ulcer, about 1-2mm, the number of ulcers and more, up to a dozen or dozens scattered, like “stars.” Nearby ulcers can be connected into a sheet, mucosal redness, pain most important, increased salivation. It may be associated with headache, fever and general malaise, local lymph node swelling and other symptoms.
Chinese medicine believes that oral ulcers are divided into: sthenia  syndrome and deficiency syndrome ulcers mouth ulcers. Hair of acute oral ulcers mostly real disease. More from the heart and spleen accumulated heat, caused by exogenous evil heat. Visible mouth ulcers more irregular shape, size, color yellow, burning pain, red hot mouth, thirst, bad breath, vermilion dry tongue, dry stool, urine short yellow veins real strong, reddish yellow fur or thick and greasy. Long illness were mostly empty fire is mouth sores, usually caused by hyperactivity; or false positive float caused by the evil hot steamed; floating or virtual fire-induced mouth sores. Visible mouth ulcers of varying sizes, recurrent, sallow color, mild heartburn, dry mouth, throat not want to drink, five upset hot, hot face vermilion, waist and knees, pulse string.

Acupuncture Treatment of Scoliosis

Acupuncture Treatment of Scoliosis

View from the back of a normal spine is straight, if in a pillow midpoint (external occipital carina) to the sacral spine connection, a part of the spine spinal axis deviation from the normal phenomenon, called dorsal column scoliosis. Human spine at birth is bent forward. With the development of sitting, walking and other functions, and gradually formed the cervical and lumbar spine bent forward, thoracic, four physiological sacral spine backward bending bent to maintain complete torso balance, buffer , shock absorption, support the internal organs and many other physiological functions. Spine is not curved side under normal circumstances, if there is any bent, they are all regarded as pathological changes, in addition to scoliosis, kyphosis outer side, often accompanied by spinal rotation and the convex side of the ribs kyphosis deformities, severe cases may also can cause a change of heart and lungs, digestive system and the nervous system, it is more known as scoliosis syndrome. The cause of the development of the cause of scoliosis scoliosis so far is not very clear, because the clinical findings of leg length discrepancy, shoulders injustice (scapula one high and one low) side of the chest collapsed one side of the back ridge (razor back) the one hand side the formation of wrinkles, body side from the spine to the side wall of the elbow ranging appear deformity.
Scoliosis classification
1. Structural scoliosis: scoliosis spine irreversible merger vertebral rotation.
2. Non-structural scoliosis: also known as functional scoliosis or postural scoliosis, the spine is a reversible.
Scoliosis division level:
1. Mild scoliosis: scoliosis person less than 20 degrees. Generally less than 10 degrees who can be regarded as the normal range.
2. Moderate scoliosis: scoliosis at 20 to 40 degrees or 50 degrees or more.
3. Severe scoliosis: scoliosis are more than 40 or 50 degrees. Most merger degenerative arthritis of the spine, scoliosis if greater than 60 or 70 degrees, often caused by heart and lung dysfunction.
Scoliosis causes:
1. Non-structural scoliosis reasons: the length of the foot. Habitual bad posture, such as endorsement package. Spine on both sides of muscle tone imbalance, bent to the side of the spine. Due to pain caused by the compensatory scoliosis, such as protruding cartilage
2. Structural scoliosis reasons: for unknown reasons. It accounted for about 80% of the spine, usually in puberty onset, but may be in a smaller age attack. Neuromuscular diseases, such as cerebral palsy, polio and so on.
3. scoliosis assessment, the average patient spine of the following occurs:. • on both sides of the shoulder is not as high as the side of one hip more prominent shoulder blades protruding pelvic tilt
If it is structural scoliosis, when the patient bends forward, scoliosis situation will be more obvious.
Scoliosis categories:
 1. C Type: C spine bent to shape positive, accounting for 70% of the General scoliosis.
2. S type: spine curved in an S shape, accounting for 30% of the General scoliosis.
Scoliosis Treatment: Non-structural scoliosis: as long as the reasons for its cause to solve, can be restored. Structural scoliosis: in accordance with the age of its occurrence, severity, the causes to arrange treatment.
• Mild scoliosis: exercise therapy (must be in accordance with the spine angle, direction of rotation, softness structure to design exercise prescription, it is personal, must be under the guidance of professional staff).
• moderate scoliosis: exercise therapy plus wearing a back shelf. Brace to wear at least one day 12 hours to wear skeletal maturity date.
• Severe scoliosis: acupuncture therapy, if bone defect consider surgery.
Others such as electrotherapy, traction therapy, and no studies have shown to have significantly improved scoliosis, usually still sports therapy.
Scoliosis What are the dangers?
Scoliosis affect the patient’s morphology and psychology. Orthopedic experts say, scoliosis generally difficult to early detection, many patients are to wait until there is a clear deformity, curvature of the spine occurs, back bulge asymmetrically, Kazakhstan Hanxiong back phenomenon, after the patient’s chest and back many bulge a rib peak, also known as razor back when was discovered, when the patient’s body has been significantly affected, from frustrated confidence is not conducive to mental health.
Scoliosis patients can cause short stature, not a long one. Orthopedic experts say, suffers from scoliosis, the curve will affect the growth of the body.
Scoliosis also affect the patient’s heart and lung health. This is also what are the dangers of scoliosis in that, because the thoracolumbar scoliosis occurs in the majority, oppressed lungs may occur pulmonary dysfunction, along with scoliosis aggravation, it may also affect circulation, cardiac function obstacles activity appears slightly flustered shortness of breath.
Scoliosis may affect life expectancy. Orthopedic experts say, the general level of scoliosis patients with serious health greatly impaired the long run, as well as lifelong paralyzed crisis occurred, decreased quality of life, the average life expectancy is shorter than the normal person.
Acupuncture therapy
We believe that the pathological process scoliosis, spinal column strength to maintain the fixed (vertebrae) is the normal arrangement of soft tissue (muscle ligaments, etc.), but once they lesions, such as muscles, ligaments, tendon and other lesions appear as adhesion occurs, calcification contracture scars and other diseases, followed by soft tissue loss or loss of muscle strength with the original action, has led force imbalance spine, vertebrae instability phenomena, such as vertebrae shift, there have been 2-5 to the vertebrae side shift, scoliosis is formed. Some will oppress the nerves, blood vessels leading to a variety of symptoms.
  Acupuncture treatment process: through the release of acupuncture, peeling clear, stimulating lifting their adhesions, scar contracture, calcification and other diseases, to restore the force balance around the bone, the way will be joint reduction, but also to restore the visual senses, lifted compression of nerves, blood vessels, all the clinical manifestations of chest tightness, pain, limited mobility and other symptoms disappeared, to tackling the problem, the chance of recurrence is very small. Range acupuncture treatment in scoliosis of 45 degrees or less with no vertebral defect can be cured by acupuncture non-surgical therapy. Information about the acupuncture treatment of  Scoliosis Please call Adelaide Yihong Acupuncture Clinic or visit our website atwww.adelaideacupuncture.com.au.

Acupuncture Treatment of Sciatica

Acupuncture Treatment of Sciatica

Sciatica is a common disorder. With unilateral disease more common. More common in middle-aged men. Sudden onset. Acute onset of sciatica often the first to see the waist and lower back pain stiff sense, it may appear a few days later along the path of the sciatic nerve pain. Some patients also may have been a few weeks before the onset of walking or movement while drawing sometimes cause transient nerve pain, and gradually increase and the development of intense pain. More pain spread to the buttocks or feet from the hip down. In the medial femoral trochanter, ischial hole after iliac, the middle of the popliteal fossa, and lateral dorsal lateral leg behind the thigh of the most serious.
The pain is dull and there was persistent paroxysmal intensified, paroxysmal pain may be burning and lancinating, often at night intensified. To alleviate the pain, patients often take a variety of special reduce pain posture, for example, when sleep again hi to the contralateral side, the patient side of the hip and knee bent. When a patient needs to sit-ups, knee disease side will be bent, which is reflective curved protective. When sat down, first and foremost focus on the contralateral hip.
When standing, the body slightly to the contralateral are oblique, lower extremity disease in the hip, the knee bend, causing scoliosis, the most convex side of the disease, that is oblique to the contralateral trunk are to relieve the intervertebral foramen nerve root pressure. Also few convex to the contralateral, to relieve neural stem tension. When Widespread object, the patient will be affected knee flexion, so as not to stretch the sciatic nerve. Sciatica, and was exacerbated by the nature of the radioactive pain pain when coughing, sneezing and gas and hard. Lumbar spinous process and the transverse process tenderness the most obvious, and points along the sciatic nerve pathway less pain.
Sciatica clinical reasons, mostly lumbar disc bulge and recommended plexus and peripheral nerve damage and piriformis syndrome is more common, so the principle of acupuncture treatment of sciatica, muscle relaxation around the path of the sciatic nerve, and clear the meridians effect. Most patients protruding disc. Both sides of the spinal muscles are very stiff, acupuncture can relieve muscle quickly, and then relaxation lumbar oppression, for disc bulge can achieve a certain effect, even more than with the efficacy of Western medicine rehabilitation pull back better.
Divided  primary sciatica  and secondary categories on clinical sciatica. Primary sciatica (sciatic nerve inflammation) cause is still unclear, and may be cold outside, or between nerves mass infection by clinical relatively rare. Its performance for rapid onset, not severe pain at the beginning, but soon there will be severe along the sciatic nerve pathway unbearable pain, multi-site began to spread from the distal end of the buttocks or hip. Patients often have to sleep healthy knees to side; stand up from time to time from the contralateral efforts to support hand waist, bending often standing disease and limb to the body center of gravity moved to the special position of the contralateral pain relief. Straight leg raising test (patient supine, both legs naturally straight, limb elevation less than 70 degrees and cause leg pain) was significantly positive.
secondary categories on clinical Sciatica clinical manifestations of disease due to proximity to nerve root compression or irritation caused by dry and root into two categories, respectively, refers to pressure areas in the nerve roots or in terms of neural stem. Sciatica is the most common clinical, lesion located within the spinal canal, to the cause of lumbar disc herniation is more common, followed by a spinal tumors, spinal tuberculosis, lumbosacral nerve roots go far onset varies with the cause. Generally slow onset, many patients with a longer time under the back waist pain or backache, pain often from the waist to the side of the hip, thigh, popliteal fossa, lateral leg and foot radiation, was burning or knife like pain, worse at night, turn over and affect sleep. Often due to coughing, sneezing, bending or sudden shock, severe pain caused by increased activity.
Falling visible outside of the leg and dorsal limb numbness and sensory loss, gluteal muscle tension relaxation, stretching toe and toe flexor muscle weakness, tendon reflexes diminished or disappeared. Patients avoid nerve stretch, compression, often take a special position to reduce pain, such as lying to the contralateral hip, knee flexion, standing focus on the healthy side when sleeping, falling to the contralateral cause scoliosis, sitting see tilted to the contralateral hip to relieve nerve root compression. Straight leg raising test will not necessarily be positive. Dry sciatica lesions mainly in the sciatic spinal stroke, usually caused by sacroiliitis, pelvic tumors, pregnant uterus oppression, hip trauma, piriformis syndrome, intramuscular injection and diabetes caused by improper. Clinical manifestations of primary and sciatica symptoms are similar, but the difference is most obvious and slow onset of muscle atrophy and distal sensory deficits characteristic. CSF, making X-ray and CT, MRI slices can be confirmed.
Clinically, the disease easily confused with sciatica I think it is a hip fasciitis, aseptic necrosis of the femoral head and the other is. There are hip fasciitis hip pain, but often radiation to the thigh, calf and sometimes also feel discomfort, straight leg raising when there may be pain in the buttocks and thighs, it is easy to be confused with sciatica. But careful history can be found in patients with sciatica pain location is not the same site, the inspection can not find reflection and sensory disturbances often sciatica, leg straight leg raising when the sciatic nerve is not distribution. I think it is unique in acupuncture analgesia aspects of sciatica. Acupuncture treatment of sciatica is to achieve a therapeutic effect from several aspects.
First, the analgesic effect of acupuncture. To stimulate specific acupuncture points on the body to produce some kind of analgesic substance. Second, the anti-inflammatory effect of acupuncture. Acupuncture can stimulate specific acupuncture points, some kind of anti-inflammatory substances produced by the body. Third, the swelling effect of acupuncture. Acupuncture can improve local blood circulation, accelerate the elimination of local nerve root edema. Fourth, acupuncture can relieve local muscle tension, indirect play the Treatment of Sciatica.
Chinese medicine treatment of sciatica, the first is based on clinical symptoms to determine what type of illness choose a different treatment.
1. The cold, wet, paralysis type: cold sore waist and legs, walk up and down, flexion and extension inconvenience, cold rainy weather worsened, or with leg swelling; tongue, thin white or greasy, floating and tight pulse or sink. Acupuncture point selection:zhibian, yinlingquan, shumen, ashi.
2. Qi stagnation: a history of lower back injury, waist and legs tingling, sore afraid to push, push radiation was tingling, increased pain at night, the body can not prone and supine body flip difficulties; color dark purple tongue or ecchymosis, pulse astringent. Acupuncture point selection point selection;yanglingquan, geshu, xuehai, weizhong, ashi.

Acupuncture rapid treatment of allergic rhinitis

Acupuncture rapid treatment of allergic rhinitis

Allergic rhinitis is a cause nasal itching, nasal congestion, sneezing, runny as the main symptoms of the disease outside inhaled allergy antigens. It is due to the body’s increased sensitivity to certain allergens, allergic reactions occur in the nasal mucosa. In paroxysmal nasal itching, nasal congestion, sneezing, runny nose and nasal edema, pale, turbinate swelling its clinical manifestations, mainly characterized by the onset of nasal itching, continuous play sneeze, profuse watery nasal discharge, stylish with eye conjunctiva, itching on the palate and even the external auditory canal portion. Since the allergen was seasonal decrease or persist, therefore, the incidence of this disease may be in seasonal or perennial.
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. Rhinitis nasal itching is the characteristic performance, children continue to be seen with a finger or palm rub the front of the nose. And sometimes the eyes, throat, ear itch. Therefore patients often can not concentrate, the impact study or work. Watery nose, nasal blockage can be due to secondary infection or thickens, nasal, etc. have to speak. Allergic rhinitis may also be associated with insomnia, loss of sense of smell or slow, recurrent sinusitis, otitis media, nasal bleeding. Secondly, the patient may also perennial rhinitis onset while seasonal attack. Some patients may be accompanied by nasal polyps, asthma, snoring and other symptoms.
Acupuncture not only can interfere with the stimulation of the sensory nerve medium end of the sheath and inhibit cholinergic nerve excitement. Meanwhile, acupuncture can also induce neuronal release of substance P, thereby depleting substance P neurons, so that we can reduce the release of substance P in nasal mucosa at the local, it is possible to prevent the play neurogenic inflammation, indirectly play desensitization. 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.
Chinese medicine is to start from repairing the body constitution through physical conditioning, the body returned to normal balance, to treat allergic rhinitis from the root. Allergic rhinitis occurs because the body of yin and yang imbalance caused in the main qi deficiency or yang. Due to different degrees can be divided into: long treatment due to repeated colds caused to the lung qi main type; due to improper diet, physical and mental fatigue caused mainly with Spleen Qi deficiency; genetic deficiencies due to kidney deficiency caused mainly. 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.

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.
