Bell’s Palsy – Facial Paralysis

This condition causes the eyelid and the side to the mouth to droop on the affected side. These muscles become weakened as no nerve impulses are reaching them. It can, in some cases be due to a virus. Electro-Acupuncture can be very useful in treating the condition and should be used 2 or 3 times a day until the paralysis has completely gone.

Deafness – Nerve

Deafness may develop in one or both ears at any age There are two kinds of deafness: conductive deafness affecting the middle ear; and nerve deafness affecting the inner ear. Electro-Acupuncture has been shown to give an improvement in some cases.

Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) – Menieres – Vertigo

Tinnitus is often perceived as a high-pitched whistling sound which is much more noticeable in quiet surroundings. It often accompanies degeneration of the hearing nerve, thus hearing loss is also sometimes experienced. It is a very difficult condition to treat, but Electro-Acupuncture offers relief in a considerable proportion of patients. This represents a substantial improvement on conventional approaches to the problem.

Mouth Ulcers

Mouth ulcers are particularly common and troublesome, they are also often very painful.

Mumps

Mumps is a swelling of the salivary glands. This common infectious disease mostly affects children over the age of two, and occurs in epidemics every three or four years. Colloidal silver has been shown to be highly effective – take 1/2 teaspoonful under the tongue.

Sinusitis

Sinusitis is very common and can occur either in the maxillary sinuses, which lie on both sides, deep in the face below the eyes, or the frontal sinuses, situated on either side of the bridge of the nose. People with sinusitis should consider other treatments to complement Electro-Acupuncture.

Additional approaches to be considered include diet, the avoidance of mucous producing foods such as milk, dairy products and red meat. Attention should be paid to bowel function. Even slight constipation, in those predisposed to sinusitis, can lead to troublesome chronic problems. The reason for this is that the colon is connected to the sinuses as the large intestine meridian ends on the sinuses and has a connection with the large intestine itself (i.e. the colon).

If pain or tension, treat frontal headaches points. Consider hayfever points.

Laryngitis – sore throat

Laryngitis is nearly always an acute problem that involves loss of voice and is often due to a viral infection. Chronic laryngitis should always be investigated by a qualified E.N.T specialist to rule out a more serious problem.

Tonsillitis, (or sore throat), is most often due to a viral infection. In some cases however, it can be due to bacteria. If no improvement follows from Electro-Acupuncture treatment it is important to consult a doctor as a course of antibiotics will possibly be required.
