Acupuncture Treated Skin Disease
Dr. Ling Cheng

Patient: Female, 62 years old, skin lesion on the back of hairline area for three years. Treated with western medicines, didn’t get good results. (Picture 10/01/2014) The skin surface is rough, scaly; the lesion base color is red, clear boundary between effected area and skin. Skin lesion area 7.5X4.5 cm2

Tongue: Dark red with yellow coating.

Treatment plan: Nourish yin and clean heat

In one month the skin lesion has disappeared (Picture 11/01/2014)
Without treatment 59 days the skin still looks like normal.

    Chinese medicine sages through thousands of years of clinical practice used simple philosophy of traditional Chinese culture created the system of medicine diagnosis and treatment of disease. It depend on the function of the human body is divided.

    Western medicine is from the laboratory to the clinic to form a theory, is constantly towards microscopic, which along with the development of science continue to refine and branches. It is divided into the human body through anatomical results.

    Chinese medicine is the quintessence of Chinese culture, is a summary, induction, differentiation of science, be sure to inherit and carry forward; Western medicine is Western modern experimental science, attention to the fact that with the experimental results.

    Both of them can treat the disease, but there is insufficient mutual, Chinese medicine treated “whole body”, while western medicine treated the “point of disease”, combined with each other, that will be better!

    For patient, we only want to get a good result. So, when western medicine doesn’t work, trying Chinese medicine may be a good choice.

Acupuncture treated Bell’s palsy case report
Dr. Ling Cheng

 Patient: Male, 53 years old.
 During morning shower, suddenly fells mouth movement abnormalities, the angle of mouth toward to left. Philtrurm at 5 clock position. The tongue is in the middle. Following day the right eye couldn’t completely closed. Left side of face swollen and Right forehead wrinkle disappear. Right side eye pain and tear at the third day. Hard to drink water and speak unclear at fourth day. 
Patient is treated by Chinese acupuncture only start at second day, twice a day, morning and night.


Spontaneous idiopathic facial nerve (Bell's) palsy leaves residual hemifacial
weakness in 29% which is severe and disfiguring in over half of these cases.
Acute medical management remains the best way to improve outcomes. Reconstructive surgery can improve long term disfigurement. However, acute and surgical options are time-dependent. [1] When given early, high dose corticosteroids can improve outcomes.
Neither antiviral therapy nor other adjuvant therapies are supported by evidence. As the facial muscles remain viable re-innervation targets for up to 2 years,
late referrals require more complex reconstructions. Early recognition, steroid
therapy and early referral for facial reanimation (when the diagnosis is secure) 
are important features of good management when encountering these complex cases.[2]

Acupuncture treatment as one of the method have been application, but when it be used and how often times be gave is unclean. Usually acupuncture be using at after western medical treatment, at patient recover stage but not at acute stage. 
This case be using at acute stage, and acupuncture only. The patient is 99% face muscle function recover in one month.

The results shown that:
Acupuncture can be using at acute stage of Bell’s palsy
Acupuncture is special patient with pregnancy, and patient couldn’t use corticosteroids. 
Acupuncture is significant help Bell’s palsy recover and did not have side effect.
