Prostate & Acupuncture Treatment

Acupuncture may help improve enlarged prostate
TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Acupuncture may help improve conditions for those with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or enlarged prostate glands, and could stand in as an alternative to traditional drug or surgical treatments, local media reported yesterday.

Yiu Rong-sheng, a physician with the Chinese Medical Department at Chi Mei Medical Center, explained that senile BPH is nowadays a common affliction as a result of westernized diets, and that acupuncture may be effective for mild to moderate cases by improving blood and energy flow to the prostate region.

Statistics have shown that an estimated 75 percent of men over 50 years have BPH, with 50 percent showing symptoms, and that 70 percent of males experience difficulty urinating by age 70.

According to local studies, acupuncture could relieve the discomfort that comes with urinary problems through stimulating specific points on the body, Yiu said.

He added that the fine needle treatment would help regulate functions of the prostate, bladder and urethra in order to help relax the urethral sphincter and smooth muscles of the prostate as well as to increase the distensibility of the bladder.

Applying pressure on acupoints like Guanyuan around the lower stomach and Sanyinjiao, Zusanli and Taichong on the feet would alleviate BPH symptoms, said the doctor.

Yiu has been leading an ongoing study to evaluate the effectiveness of the needle technique on relieving symptoms of enlarged prostate glands, such as urinary hesitancy, frequent or painful urination.

Of the 20 patients involved with the research, most have shown improvement after treatment, but the extent to which the therapeutic procedure has helped each individual varies, Yiu said.

Can Pancreatitis Be Cured ?

In December 2006 the patient had a pancreatic attack which resulted in a hospital stay of four days and required the use of morphine for pain. He had been suffering with pancreatitis for two years. He blames this condition on the fact that he ate poorly during this time, mostly fast food with lots of fat and sugar. In a two-year period, he suffered four pancreatic attacks and two of these attacks resulted in hospital stays. His doctors ordered a blood test to see if amylase and lipase were elevated. They then confirmed he had pancreatitis by doing a CT scan.

In early 2007, endoscopic ultrasound imaging showed that the “head of the pancreas was enlarged and very heterogeneous with irregular gland borders, lobularity, hyperechoic and foci. These changes were also clearly identified in the neck, body and tail but were not as severe. The pancreatic duct was hyperechoic and irregular in the neck and body. The pancreas appeared diffusely swollen compared to the last examination. There were new calcifications in the head parenchyma. There was also a 7mm stone inside the main pancreatic duct (level of the head) before the bifurcation.” After he recovered from this attack, the patient adjusted his diet and sought massage therapy.

How Chinese Medicine views Chronic Pancreatitis

This condition is discussed under abdominal pain and diarrhea in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine).1 The pathogenesis is damp-heat phlegm statis obstructing the middle Jiao. In Western medicine, it is seen as chronic inflammation of the pancreas. Cholelithiasis and infection of the biliary tract causing reverse flow of the bile or a narrowed pancreatic duct can cause repeated attacks of pancreatitis. These are the most common causes of pancreatitis.

If not successfully treated, this condition can lead to diabetes and/or pancreatic cancer. TCM focuses on strengthening the spleen, transporting dampness, invigorating blood, and clearing heat, which can control the symptoms such as diarrhea, fatty diarrhea, emaciation, malnutrition, and abdominal distending pain. In the patient’s case, it was determined he suffered from spleen deficiency with dampness syndrome. The treatment principle determined was to strengthen the spleen and transform dampness.

How Acupuncture Works.....

What will happen on my first visit?

Your first consultation may be longer than subsequent sessions. The acupuncturist needs to assess your general state of health in order to identify the underlying patterns of disharmony and give you the most effective treatment.

You will be asked about your current symptoms and what treatment you have received so far, your medical history and that of your close family, your diet, digestive system, sleeping patterns and emotional state. Once enough information has been gathered to determine the likely causes of your problems, the acupuncturist can select the most appropriate treatment.

To discover how the energies are flowing in your body, the acupuncturist is likely to feel your pulses on both wrists, noting their quality, rhythm and strength. The structure, colour and coating of your tongue also give a good guide to your physical health. The aim is to discover which energy channels need adjusting for your specific complaint to improve, and which require treatment to boost your overall energy and vitality.

Stimulating specific acupuncture points may affect the functioning of certain organs in the body. However, those points may not be close to the part of the body where the problem is experienced. For example, although you may suffer from headaches, needles may be inserted in your foot or hand. There are around 500 such acupuncture points on the body. A properly trained and experienced acupuncturist will use a selection of perhaps ten or twelve of these for each treatment. It is quite usual for different points to be selected as the patient's condition changes during a course of treatment. photo of shoulder acupuncture

The acupuncturist may supplement needle treatment with moxa, a smouldering herb which is used to warm acupuncture points and encourage the body's energy to flow smoothly. Other methods of stimulating acupuncture points include the use of lasers or electro-acupuncture. Massage or tapping with a rounded probe are techniques particularly suitable for small children or for people with a fear of needles.

It is helpful to wear loose, comfortable clothing for your treatment and you should be aware that your acupuncturist may need access to points on your torso as well as on your arms and legs.

What does it feel like?

Acupuncture needles bear little resemblance to the needles used in injections and blood tests. They are much finer and solid, not hollow. When a needle is inserted, the sensation is often described as a tingling or dull ache. Needles may be inserted and immediately removed, or may be left in place for thirty minutes or more, depending on the effect required. During treatment, patients commonly experience a heaviness in the limbs or a pleasant feeling of relaxation. The benefits of acupuncture frequently include more than just relief from a particular condition. Many people find that it can also lead to increased energy levels, as well as better appetite and sleep, and an enhanced sense of overall wellbeing.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome & Acupuncture Treatment

We have a member, KH Lim, that has similar issue and he went through a 20 day (4 cycle) detox program and at the same time use Icewave to patch on the Pericardium 6 (P6) point with very good results.

I suggest the following procedures:

* do the 5 Day Detox for minimum of 3 cycles
* patch Icewave on P6, White on P6 and the brown patch directly below the white (bracketing). If pain persist then reverse the patch, Brown on P6 and White directly opposite side (bracketing)
* if pain persists patch Icewave brown patch on P6 and white on Stomach 12 (ST12). If pain still persist then reverse the patch, that is White on P6 and Brown on ST12.
* Drink lots of water

Below here is some background info on Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and info on P6 and ST12.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Also called: Median nerve entrapment

You're working at your desk, trying to ignore the tingling or numbness you've had for some time in your hand andwrist. Suddenly, a sharp, piercing pain shoots through the wrist and up your arm. Just a passing cramp? More likely you have carpal tunnel syndrome.

The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway of ligament and bones at the base of your hand. It contains nerve and tendons. Sometimes, thickening from irritated tendons or other swelling narrows the tunnel and causes the nerve to be compressed. Symptoms usually start gradually. As they worsen, grasping objects can become difficult.

What causes the problem? Some people have smaller carpal tunnels than other people do. Other causes include performing assembly line work, wrist injury, or swelling due to certain diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis. Women are three times more likely to have carpal tunnel syndrome than men. Treatment includes resting your hand, splints, pain and anti-inflammatory medicines, and surgery.
