New research has proved the existence of an energy field around the human body and the dependence of the state of health of its stability and strength. With proper distribution and flow of energy in the body, the person feels healthy and vigorous. By controlling the circulation of energy in the human body has long been engaged doctors of ancient China and is widely used for the treatment of acupuncture points located on the human body. They can be used to cure diseases of the pancreas, thyroid, liver, adrenal glands, heart, ovary, bronchitis, pneumonia, gastric and duodenal ulcers and many other diseases.

Acupuncture is translated from Latin as "needle prick" (acus - needle, punctura (pungo, pungere) - stabbing, stinging). We have a process called acupuncture, acupuncture, acupuncture.

What is acupuncture points?

Homeland of this technique is considered to Ancient China, it has a few thousand years. An acupuncture many years of experience which has shown that the stimulation of certain parts of the skin there are changes in the course of the disease, decreases pain, improves the well-being of the patient. These small areas on the surface of the human body called acupressure points or acupuncture points. Centuries-old study of the connection of these areas with the internal human organs and their response to external stimulation allowed ancient healers to define them as "window" for the absorption or release of energy by the body, which flows through the meridians, located on the human body and helps normalize the circulation of energy in it.

Meridians intersect the human body by combining parts of the central nervous system, the surface skin and internal organs. As it rises to the surface energy of the body, to biologically active zones which are defined by neural nodes. If all the organs are healthy, stable circulation passes, but if you have the disease, the normal circulation of energy is blocked and the person begins to feel uncomfortable, sick body. In humans, there are about 600 acupuncture points, which are located along the energy meridians.

In humans, there are unpaired and paired meridians, yin and yang.

Yin - symbolizes the feminine, negative, dark beginning. Yang - a bright, positive, active, masculine. The energy inside the body moves Yin Yang - outside. If between the meridians of the energy balance is disturbed, there are diseases in the human body. The main meridians of yin - two ventral trunk and along the inner and outer surfaces of arms and legs nerve chain.

Effective healing system of the East aimed at purging the energy channels of the body, energy balance and respect for the right to provide all of the energy, thus avoiding diseases or get rid of them.

Biologically active area looks virtually indistinguishable from the surrounding skin and is determined by pain on pressure. Only under the microscope can be determined in these places accumulation of various nerve endings. A more reliable way of finding these points - is the impact of a weak direct current, which increases dramatically in areas of reduced electric resistance. As researchers found, electrodermal resistance depends on the condition of not only the skin, but also the body associated with it. This discovery forms the basis of electro. When exposed to one of the points of the meridian change indicators on the whole meridian, which indicates the relationship between them.

By stimulating acupressure points included the reflex mechanism of the body, contributing to the recovery of the diseased organ.

All types of exposure to acupuncture zones lead to the release of endorphins in the blood, endogenous opiates, which stimulates the metabolic processes in the body, leading to its recovery.

These types of acupuncture, as acupuncture, acupuncture, acupuncture, combined method of influence on biologically active zones of the introduction of special metal needles. They are made from medical steel or silver, or gold. Silver Needle is better to put a soothing massage at the gold, on the contrary, are able to activate processes in the body. There are two methods of stimulation of biologically active points.

Brake - to relieve pain and exciting at the sluggishness of the Authority, weakened immunity, intestinal, and so on. D. The exciting massage is done for a minute, more active in one session massaged 6-8 points, it is desirable to add a rotational movement of the finger for a deeper impact to the point. Redness of the skin at the site of massage speaks correctly performed procedure.

Needles are introduced into biologically active points of a quick prick, a slow rotation, or by combining these two methods. Discomfort after entering the needle testify to the correctness of the choice of therapeutic massage. On average, the needle is introduced 2-4 on 5-10-20 minutes, course of treatment is 10-15 sessions each day. Then you must take a break of 10-15 days, and if necessary, repeat the course.

A positive result from carrying out these procedures is the result of stimulation of biologically active points, which regulates the nervous system, the power organs, metabolism, hormone production. Acupuncture is very effective in the treatment of neuralgia, an inflammation of the facial nerve, sciatica, epilepsy, neurasthenia, secretory, trophic disorders, stomach ulcers, colitis, asthma and other serious diseases.

Acupressure fingers is not as effective as acupuncture, but more secure when unskilled doctor. Massage is performed point fingers pad 1-3, set vertically. Putting a finger, make a slow pressure on the point. When the point is precisely defined by pain, made a circular rotation of the finger with the skin for 5 seconds. Then make tapping the point again in a circular motion for 30 seconds. During the massage, might feel an ache, heat, bloating, passage of electric current, indicating that the correct point selected and acted upon.

Auriculotherapy - stimulation of the body through the ears

In the human body there are places on which there are biologically active points of almost the entire body. This feet and ears. The acupuncture points are called auricular ear. On the ear is placed 130 points, stimulating that can cure chronic diseases, relieve pain, improve health. Actively used in the ear following points: 15, relating to muscles, sense organs, internal organs, and 15 for the complex effects on the entire body, bringing it to a balanced and rhythmic condition.

Ears are always easily accessible, have a clear link with the organs and systems that ensure the effectiveness of the treatment. The auricle in appearance resembles an embryo, and the location of acupuncture points on it is also consistent with this analogy. The head of the embryo rests on the earlobe. Organs of the abdominal and chest cavity are at the deepest part of the pinna, thoracic - below the abdominal - above. Hand point located at the back of the ear, foot - the upper part, the middle - dots spine.

Palpated points and massaged not sharp object in the form of rods with spherical tip, or with your fingers. If the point is found right after pressing the pale mound formed, which eventually turns pink. Massage is done with his right hand, the fingers of the left hand is used as a support when pressing on a point on the back of the ear. In the process of massage may occur soreness massaged points, there is a feeling of burning, warmth. Tenderness will diminish in the course of the recovery authority. Massaging the biologically active points of the ear clockwise promotes toning of the body, counterclockwise - to relax.

Often the symptoms of chronic gastritis are absent. There are asymptomatic forms. The destructive effect is found during examination of other diseases. For example, during gastroscopy patient suffering from pancreatitis, duodenitis, cholecystitis, anemia (which refers to a deficiency of vitamin B 12, iron or folic acid).

Typical clinical manifestations: pain dull, aching, worse after eating. Dispersion syndrome (belching, nausea, heartburn, flatulence). Decreased appetite. Irregular chair. Patients often have atrophic "polish language", which is lined with a thick white coating.

Focal atrophic gastritis. It is a kind of chronic. In some cases, atrophic type accompanies enterocolitis, cholecystitis and pancreatitis. He develops due to atrophic changes of the mucosa and a decrease in the amount of iron. Progressing functional iron deficiency.

Iron is not just amazed, they cease to function, die and takes the place of fibrous tissue, which does not produce gastric juices. Fits strong thinning of the mucosal tissue, it becomes gray. The size of the gastric folds diminish. Atrophy of certain areas of the mucosa in the future lead to more serious disorders. Pronounced atrophy accompanied by a sharp thinning and draining. Sheath vulnerable becomes easy, and this can lead to further development of ulcers.

Treatment of atrophic gastritis

Treat it necessary. First of all, starting treatment, it is necessary to identify the cause that caused the chronic gastritis and fix it. Check for H. pylori and autoimmune chronic gastritis.   To be tested. Enzyme preparations will not help. Upon confirmation of Helicobacter doctor will prescribe specific antibiotics.

Treatment takes place in stages. Together with antibiotics prescribed drugs, reducing the allocation of hydrochloric acid. Later, add pepsin and hydrochloric acid (violation of previous treatment). The treatment will not be effective if you do not comply with the assigned diet. It should be possible to protect themselves from stress, try to get rid of bad habits.
