Anyone who has ever experienced hemorrhoids will tell you what a ‘pain in the butt’ it can be.
Hemorrhoids are characterized by inflammation and edema of the vessels surrounding the anus and rectum. It is a common condition effecting millions of people all around the world. Hemorrhoids typically are caused by the effort to evacuate stool, pregnancy, chronic constipation or a low fiber diet. Traditional Chinese Medicine, which includes acupuncture and Chinese herbs, maintains a holistic perspective aimed towards resolving what is causing the hemorrhoids while also providing relief and improving a person’s quality of life.
What are some symptoms of hemorrhoids?
There are some key signs and symptoms that hemorrhoids can cause. The Mayo Clinic lists the following as common symptoms: painless bleeding during bowel movements, including bright red blood located in the toilet or on toilet paper; itching/irritation in the anal region; pain or discomfort; swelling around the anus; lump(s) near the anus that can potentially be sensitive/painful; and leakage of feces.
Can acupuncture treat hemorrhoids?
Acupuncture has been shown to provide significant and long-lasting relief to people suffering with this condition.
Tradition Way: Within the teachings of Chinese medicine, blood-vessel/ hemmorhoid related problems can result from an imbalance of yang energy of the Du Mai meridian. This meridian also known as "Sea of Yang" has the following principle functions: regulating the Yang energy of the body and maintaining the strength of the body. The 28-point Du Mai meridian originates at the perineum, moves up along the spine and skull and terminates in the mouth. General treatment of hemorrhoids the therapist usually chooses 6-10 acupuncture points to which he applies the needles for 20 to 30 minutes. The conventional method principally includes use of one or several of the Du Mai points 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. This is a reliable approach yielding satisfactory results.
Yet There is an alternative technique which has proven vastly superior in its practice. During many years of clinical and private practice, I have learned a method from Mr. Ji which I call "two- Eight Treatment" Which can significiently improve the symptom and not experience a return of symptoms
Two – 20% result is from clear the blockage in mouth, yes, Chinese medicine said use upper body point to treat lower body problems. (DU-28 (Yin Jiao) Gum Intersection)
Eight – 80% results from clear local blockage
Du Mai 4 point. its location easy to access for the therapist, but its use is also almost completely painless. its alternative name "life's gate," it is one of the main points used to increase the vital Yang energy of the patient, a therapeutic effect, which is very useful in this treatment of hemorrhoids. it is crucial for the success of this approach that the acupuncture point is being properly stimulated by needle by moving it steadily back and forth within the point (do not remove the needle during the motions) for the duration of the whole minute. If necessary, digging out blockage thread and wet cupping used common as well.
Another point will be looked around lower back, most people has sensitive and dark spot on the skin, under the spot are depositing large amount of toxins. Remove the blockage and toxin are helpful to Du 4.
Chinese medicine is applied at both 2 points and internally to speed up healing.
Result: Most people reported relieved from pain and bleeding after 1 treatments. Case studies have proven this treatment to be 100 percent effective after 5 sessions with no return of any symptoms, even in severe cases, within a six-month observation period.
