Treatments
Detoxification Treatment
Points:
• Autonomic Point (39)
Calm sympathetic nervous system
• Shenmen (area 1, 2nd ear model)
Calm shen
•
•
•
These points are to assist in the process of toxins through major detoxification organs
Kidney (47)
Liver (46)
Lungs (52)
Obesity
Main Points:
Stomach (43)
Secondary Points:
Mouth (40)
Lung
(area 52)
Spleen (50)

Shenmen
(area 1, 2nd model)
Endocrine
(34)
Sanjiao
(53)
Discussion:
Maximize food/drink processing: stomach, spleen, large intestine
Calm the shen: shenmen, autonomic/sympathetic
Calm oral cravings: mouth, hungry, thirsty
Enhance metabolism: endocrine
Resolve dampness associated with obesity: lung, kidney, sanjiao
Treatment:
Filiform or electric acupuncture daily, 3-5 points each time. Follow up with seeds/granules.
Conjunctivitis
Treatment 1
Blood letting on Ear Apex
Treatment 2
Puncture with strong stimulation:
• Eye (K on 2nd ear model)
• Shenmen (area 1 on 2nd ear model)
• Ear Apex
Retain needles for 30 minutes
Bronchial Asthma

Shenmen
(area 1 on 2nd
model)
Secondary Points
Root of Vagus
(71, 2nd ear model)
Methods of Treatment:
During active asthma attack:
Strong stimulation with filiform needle. Choose 4-5 points bilateral or unilateral. Retain
for 30 minutes.
When during “asthma season”:
Same as above, but daily until condition stabilizes. After stabilization, once every other
day.
During Remission:
Embed needles or seeds.
Chronic Gastritis
Main Points:
Stomach (43)
Secondary Points:
(46)
End of inferior helix crus –
sympathetic nerve (39)
Spleen (50)
Mouth (40)
Lung (52)
Endocrine or
Intertragus (34)
Discussion:
All points calm gastric overactivity. Stomach/spleen calms the organ as does sympathetic nerve.
St/Sp additionally increase efficiency of the food processing. Endocrine point stops
overproduction of acids. Liver calms liver fire flaring up to spleen/stomach. Mouth treats the
inflamed stomach. Lung…good question.
Treatment Methods:
1. Needle or electric acupuncture once daily using 3-5 points from the above.
2. Embed seeds or granules.

Endocrine
Uterus or Intertragus
Perhaps internal genitalia
