      Hi. I'd like to recomend u besides acupuncture, and chinese herbs, to use
      auriculotherapy.
      I do use it, and it's very good.
      It's important to get a correct diagnosys, for best resoults, but u can use
      despite of it, some points according to Huang Li Chun's school. They are:
      ANUS, RECTUM, and LARGE INTESTINE as local points.
      KIDNEY, as zang-fu point. Remember kidney rules urethra and anus. If u got
      the diagnosys, use points of the other zang-fu involved.
      As especific action points, use ENDOCRINE and if there's no problem with
      high blood pressure, ADRENAL GLAND can be used too.SHEN MEN might be good
      and LESSER OCCIPTAL NERVE too. This point will increase the action on anus
      point.
      To regulate, SUBCORTEX.
      If u need to raise yang qi, some other points must be used.
      Be confortable to make any questions, and to further information see:

        I have patient who inquired about acupuncture
        treatment for anal fissure. I do not have experience
        treating this condition with AP, so I am turning to
        the lists for guidance.

        Patient has longitudinal tear in lining of anal canal,
        probably caused by traumatic laceration from hard
        stool. Specialists have tried everything from stool
        softeners to sitz baths to topical nitroglycerin, but
        fissure only healed about 50%. Now they are
        contemplating surgery to interfere with the cycle of
        internal anal sphincter spasm (in theory, cause of
        perpetuating condition). Surgery will involve
        internal anal sphincterotomy.

        Patients wants to avoid this surgery if at all
        possible. He heard that AP can accelate wound healing
        and relieve muscle spasm. But I do not know if it can
        heal anal fissure or relieve spasm of internal anal
        sphincter.

        I am considering "surrounding the dragon" with EA
        between GV01 and CV01, with distal points on UB
        channel, which Nei Jing says "enters the anus."

        On internet, I find reference to one study, but do not
        have details or abstract (Yang WB, Kong FW. AP for
        anal fissure. AJA 1987; 15:384.)

        Does anyone on the lists have experience treating anal
        fissure with AP, or have suggestions?

        Thank you very much!

        Zhou Xun
