An 11 -year-old girl presented with suicidal tendencies and behavior problems noted since she was 4-years-old. She had received many allopathic medications with no improvement. A holistic treatment resolved her symptoms. Auricular medicine determined the organ and cause of pathology.
A 12-year-old girl awoke one morning with aphasia while vacationing at a resort area 7,000 feet above sea level. Shortly thereafter, nausea and vomiting occurred, accompanied by severe headaches. Results of several intensive investigations, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), were unremarkable. Although the aphasia gradually subsided over a few days, the headaches continued on a daily basis with considerable intermittent exacerbations.
The auricular acupuncture microsystem has been established as a key therapy in the
acupuncture armamentarium. While general body acupuncture addresses the various
pathophysiological problems through treating the corresponding meridians, the auricular
acupuncture microsystem offers very specific localizations for the organs and structures
involved in the pathology. Treating such somatotopic projections on the auricle frequently yields
superior results. This paper focuses on the application of auricular needling to both enhance
and suppress sexual desire.
