Re: [acupuncture] anal fissure
- Hi. I'd like to recomend u besides acupuncture, and chinese herbs, to use
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
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:
- The only help I can be is to say the patient must starve. No solid food for as long as it takes. Teas and juices only. This is a treatment that can work, I do not propose to starve anyone.

the lists for guidance.
Patient has longitudinal tear in lining of anal canal,

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
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!
