Acupuncture, eczema and yangming

Description

Lantern (2016), Teja A. Jaensch

Abstract

This is an interpretive naturalistic case study of a patient suffering severe chronic atopic eczema who was treated using acupuncture, low dose herbs and self-cultivation. Coming in with a history of previous Chinese medical treatment, this patient presented an opportunity to consider several aspects of Chinese medical theory and therapy; bleeding therapy, the siguan (four gates), yangming and its action of concealing, the treatment and understanding of blood and heat, yin and yang in relation to the kan (water) and li (fire) trigrams, and the difference one acupuncture point can make.
