Skin and immunity
Lupus erthymtosus is a disorder of the skin due to weak immunity. Y. S. Chen and X. I. Hu41 found that needles applied to points according to signs and symptoms showed good result in the treatment of discoid lupus erythematosus.
Myopia is viewed in Oriental medicine as due to congenital insufficiency or bad eye habits. In young adults, H. F. Cheng42 shows “Myopia was well treated using semen vaccaria on Eye 1, Eye 2, Eye, Occiput, Liver, and Kidney. Three courses of treatment produced a 93% success rate.” An H. Liu et al.43 study reports a 44.3% improvement of adolescents’ myopia and a 98.5% increase in visual acuity using semen impatientis. Treatment was administered once a week with four treatments constituting a course of treatment, and one to four courses administered.”
A study by C. Yang and colleagues44 combined ear-pressing therapy with injections of placenta to treat myopia. The placenta injection was used to enhance the semen vaccaria’s known efficacy. Placenta has been shown to have good effect in the treatment of strain, constitutional feebleness, and chronic ocular disease. Placenta invigorates Qi, nourishes Blood, replenishes body Essence, and, as a tonic, corrects congenital insufficiency and deficiency of Qi and Blood.
