Chronic urticaria, allergic rhinitis from blood therapy to treat
Reporter Zhang Hua of jinyang.com correspondent Li Chao
In the outpatient department of acupuncture and moxibustion Department of the second hospital of traditional Chinese medicine in Guangdong Province, we often see doctors draw blood for some patients, and then beat the blood back. Many patients have doubts. What kind of therapy is this? It seems a little hard to understand. Why should we take out the blood and return it?
When the hematoma is stimulated at acupoints, the sensitivity of the body will be reduced
This special therapy is called Autohemotherapy. Nie bin, director of the Department of acupuncture and moxibustion of the second hospital of traditional Chinese medicine of Guangdong Province, explained that simply speaking, it is to draw a little blood from the patient’s vein and then inject it back into the patient’s body at acupoints to achieve the purpose of treatment.
According to traditional Chinese medicine, Autohemotherapy is a stimulating therapy. There are many kinds of trace elements, antibodies and enzymes in the blood of human body. Local small hematoma can be formed after the blood is injected into acupoints. Hematoma will continuously stimulate acupoints. Through channels and collaterals, the body will produce a non-specific desensitization effect, thus reducing the sensitivity of the body, improving microcirculation, enhancing the body’s immunity, and improving the ability to resist evil.
Since blood injection therapy can treat allergic diseases, but also improve immunity? in truth. Nie Bin said that Autohemotherapy is especially suitable for autoimmune diseases, such as allergic rhinitis, asthma, vitiligo, chronic urticaria, systemic pruritus, generalized eczema and dermatitis, allergic purpura, psoriasis, chronic eczema, recurrent furuncle, alopecia areata, etc., with different degrees of efficacy.
Urticaria attack after 8 times of self blood therapy,
Chronic urticaria is a very distressing skin disease. Three years ago, Mr. Lin, 36, suddenly developed a wheal like skin rash with severe itching. The rash rises quickly, subsides quickly, and attacks repeatedly. It must occur 3-4 times a month. The dermatology department of the local hospital diagnosed him with chronic urticaria. He needed to take loratadine, azelastine and other anti allergic drugs for a long time. However, although he could relieve the itching after taking the medicine, he still had repeated attacks and was very worried.
Later, Mr. Lin went to the second middle hospital of Guangdong Province for treatment, and did 20 special allergen tests in the outpatient department, but no abnormality was found. In view of the ineffectiveness of his previous treatment methods, Nie bin suggested that Autohemotherapy should be adopted, including Xuehai, Quchi, Zusanli and shousanli, combined with acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine. He injected 1ml blood into each of the four acupoints every week. After eight times of treatment, Mr. Lin told the doctor that there was no recurrence of urticaria that month. Later, director Nie told Mr. Lin to take a rest, not to stay up late and avoid spicy food. He was followed up for half a year and did not relapse.
After 20 years of allergic rhinitis, Autohemotherapy can also treat
Many people are also deeply troubled by allergic rhinitis. Ms. Zhang, who has allergic rhinitis, has not been comfortable for more than 20 years. Sneezing, runny nose, stuffy nose, bronchial asthma, itchy nose, itchy throat when I get up every day, I feel bad. I saw a lot of doctors, took a lot of anti cold drugs and anti allergy drugs, but the symptoms didn’t relieve obviously. I even used hormone drugs, so that I was in poor health and easy to catch a cold.
Because of the aggravation of symptoms recently, Ms. Zhang had to go to the hospital again. In the acupuncture clinic, Nie bin through examination, found that Ms. Zhang suffering from allergic rhinitis, but also lung and kidney deficiency. It is suggested that Autohemotherapy should be used to inject shuangfeishu, Shenshu, gaohuang and Fengmen in turn, combined with oral Chinese medicine to tonify the lung and kidney, resist disease and resist pathogenic factors. Each time 4 points, each point 1ml blood injection, after a course of treatment 6 times. Unexpectedly, Ms. Zhang’s nasal congestion, runny nose symptoms have greatly improved, even the number of cold attacks reduced.
Nie Bin said that at present, many patients in the outpatient department have tried all kinds of methods, but they have been cured by self blood therapy. According to outpatient statistics, the effective rate of this therapy is 70-80%. If the effect of other treatments is not good, it is recommended to try this Autohemotherapy. In fact, Autohemotherapy is a combination of acupuncture, bloodletting and acupoint injection. Blood is injected into the acupoints and goes directly to the disease center along the meridians system. Through the induction and conduction along the meridians, it can dredge the meridians and restore the balance of yin and Yang. It draws on the theory of the specific relationship between meridians and acupoints and viscera in traditional Chinese medicine. It is a “simple, convenient and inexpensive” TCM appropriate therapy.
Tips: the safety of Autohemotherapy is better, because it is your own blood, no rejection reaction, no obvious toxic and side effects. However, experts believe that the following points should be noted when injecting:
1. The needle should be inserted according to the anatomical characteristics of the acupoints, paying attention to the direction and depth
3. The needle mouth should not touch water for 2 days to prevent infection
4. It is normal for some patients to feel local acid swelling after injection;
5. Autohemotherapy is often combined with oral administration of traditional Chinese medicine and external scrubbing and washing.
