Modern approaches failed to provide a permanent solution to the patient in many diseases, offer a drug-dependent life model by developing disease symptoms reduction methods. And they call these diseases 'chronic disease' meaning 'incurable', not the diseases ‘they cannot cure'.
High blood pressure, migraine, asthma , allergic rhinitis , chronic sinusitis, chronic urticaria, acne, eczema , psoriasis, menopausal syndrome, obesity, arthritis , hemiplegia , some hepatitis, chronic nephritis , digestive system diseases and diabetes etc...
The thing which fails in these and other similar disorders called chronic diseases is the balance between the body's systems. In some diseases, such as Type I diabetes, this disrupted balance result in permanent destruction. In Type I diabetes, the insulin-secreting pancreatic cells are destroyed by the body's own defense system. In later stages of this disorder, there is no other way than to put insulin which cannot be produced by the body in place by injections made from outside.
However, if the defense system could be pulled to the optimum sensitivity level, this person would not have to live insulin-dependent. This situation is no different for Alzheimer, or for dialysis -dependent renal patients.
So, stopping of the progress of this and other similar ailments with acupuncture treatment, if they were identified and arrangements can be made between the systems in the initial period, the disease can be treated before they become full disease.
The situation is even more heartwarming in problems such as asthma, chronic rhinitis, in all allergic diseases such as skin allergies, in migraine headaches, obesity , digestive system problems, sleep disturbances, and depressed moods , in the rheumatic diseases where the joint is not completely destroyed, in viral ( B and C ) hepatitis unless they are transformed to cirrhosis disease, in the waist and neck hernia, in high blood pressure problems unless they lead to diseases such persistent problems such as cerebral hemorrhage.
In these diseases, the main problems can be solved completely. The resulting damages can be concluded close to full or partial improvement dependent on the severity of the condition and the time passed.
In a nutshell, for the treatment of acupuncture combined with the right method of herbal diet, it is not surprising that many diseases termed in modern times as 'chronic disease' is 'just a disease'.
What is it?
There are various types of joint pain, including rheumatoid joint paint which constitutes main part of them. Arthritis arising from age and joint injuries constitutes main part of the painful diseases of femur head (hip joints) and knee joint. The arthritis is not kind of rheumatic disease.
The real rheumatoid joint pain, contrary to what is believed is observed in the small joints such as finger and toe joints. They cause pain, injuries, swelling and movement restriction. In the case of rheumatoid arthritis, the patients suffer from joint hardness and paint as they wake up. There is decrease in the pain during the day. While the patients suffer from arthritis feels more comfortable during the morning. The pain increases during daytime and they suffer from movement restriction.
How does it occur?
In gonarthrosis disease known also as senility joint disease, the joints suffer from degradation in long term use. Due to the degradation, the arthritis and pain occur. The cartilage covering the joint surface of the bones especially in the joints carrying the weight of the body like knees get thinner, the joint spacing gets narrower, the synovial fluid gets lesser and the bones start to rub against each other. The pain is almost insufferable.
The main reason of the joint paint arising from rheumatoid arthritis, psora or lupus the joints are destroyed by the bodies’ own defensive cells. In the first stage of these kinds of diseases, the synovial fluid increases as a result of the invasion of the defensive cells, the joint capsule gets thicker and the cartilage surfaces fall into ruin. Especially in the morning the joints are painful and swelling. Later in the day there is a partial relief however the destruction in the joints still continues. Day by day the pain in the joints is replaced by movement restriction; in the later stages the movement ability of the joint is partially or completely lost.
How is the Treatment?
The treatment by means of acupuncture is possible for both types of the diseases. However the treatment for arthrolith is mainly rehabilitation. During the treatment the pain in the juncture is removed, and in time partial healing is observed in the joint; however the cartilage lost cannot be regained. The sessions which are very often at first can be reduced as the pain is relieved. It can be scheduled as once a month.
The treatment of rheumatoid arthritis by means of acupuncture is quite important. Thanks to the acupuncture treatment, not only the pain can be stopped but also the ongoing destruction can also be stopped. Similarly, the sessions which are very often in the beginning get fewer as the patients are in remission (as the disease progression stops). Acupuncture has high potential of treating these kinds of diseases successfully.

The outer surface of our body, our skin, of course, is not a simple protective case. Many functions that could be called complex are collected in the skin. These events continue on the skin together or sequential.
In acne disturbance a problem occurred on mechanism maintaining the skin wetness and lubrication.
Normal sweating gives the feeling of comfortless by moisturizing our skin. Also releases protective agents to the skin surface which reduces effect of the external factors.
In the acne disturbance, regular sweat production of sweat glands in the skin that allows the skin's natural moisture is impaired.
Sweating is usually realized as a sudden and abundant, sweating the other time of the day is realized that will not be enough for the skin's moistening.
Sebaceous glands produce too much oil tries to close that deficit. This excess oil produced, will clog channels of sweat glands and sebaceous glands by darkening on the skin on the surface and cause acne. In acne treating skin miniaturization plays an important role as reducing skin oil.
Acupuncture, reduces oiling by bringing the skin moisturizing such as sweating to the required level, and shows an outstanding success in treating by going to the roots of the disturbance.
Therefore acupuncture is faster than expected, more effective and more permanent in the treatment of acne compared to other treatment methods.
To summarize the action mechanism of acupuncture, let's keep the light on the technical infrastructure and action mechanisms of acupuncture:
Each person is formed from a single cell, or even from a single genetic code. This genetic information is located in each cell in original, pristine form. It’s also in communication with organs, tissues and cells in the body through the nervous system.
By using this communication network and genetic information, it is possible to invite the body to its original state. To alert the system to complete the missing things that manifest itself as disease, to trigger the original information to replace the corrupted is the acupuncture treatment technique.
Again, to repair communication failure by stimulating the communication network that wraps the body, to reduce data loss by accelerating the communication, to prepare the ground for the positive intervention of the central nervous system meaning the brain, s among the effect mechanisms of acupuncture
In short, acupuncture, is effective in all the system damages and all metabolic processes. So, it is not possible to envisage a disease where acupuncture is not effective more or less. In addition, acupuncture is one of the few treatment methods without the possibility of harm. Because its action mechanism is based on to invite the body to the original required state.

Bağışıklık sistemindeki aşırı tepki, istemsiz sinir sistemindeki dengesizlikle birleştiğinde alerji ortaya çıkar.
Akupunktur problemin kökenine inerek savunma sistemindeki aşırılığı teskin eder. Sinir sistemindeki dengesizliği
rehabilite ederek dengeler. Böylece alerjik tepki, nedene bağlı olmaksızın, azalarak ortadan kalkar.
Vertigo, beynimizin kendini konumlandırma çabasındaki başarısızlıktır.
Bunun nedeni ise çevremizden beynimize gelen konumlandırmaya dair bilgiler arasındaki çelişkidir.
Buna yol açan sebep, boyun fıtığı, iç kulak problemi ya da görme problemi olabilir. Nedenin tesbit
edilip, tedavinin ona göre yapılması gerekmektedir. Sonuç genelde yüz güldürücüdür.
Alerjik Nezle, burun mukozalarımızdaki savunma hücrelerimizin aşırıya kaçan tepkisi ile oluşur.
Soluduğumuz hava içerisindeki aşırı duyarlı olduğumuz maddeler, burun içi mukozamızda tepkiye yol açar.
savunma hücrelerinin salgıladığı maddeler burnumuzu şişirir, nefes almakta zorlanırız, burun akıntısı oluşur.
Akupunktur, alerjik problemin nedeni olan aşırılığı ortadan kaldırarak rahatca nefes almamıza imkan verir ve nefes alışımızı keskinleştirir.
"Akupunktur Sigaranızı alır, Mutluluğunuzu değil !"
Sigarayı bırakmak istiyorsanız, Akupunktur doğru bir seçenektir. Çünkü akupunktur akçiğerimizin kendini yenilemesinin önünü açar ve sigara bağımlılığının sinir sistemimizde oluşturduğu bozuk dengeleri onarır.
Bedensel ve zihinsel bütünlüğümüzü, bir üst seviyeye taşıyarak hayattan lezzet almamıza imkan tanır.
Ağrı, ağrıyan bölgedeki hücrelerin gördüğü zararın, bilinç seviyesinde ifade edilmesidir.
O bölgedeki zarar giderildiği taktirde ağrı kendiliğinden kalkacaktır.
Akupunktur, hücrelerin gördüğü zararı onararak, ağrıyı ortadan kaldırır.
In asthma discomfort, airways are shrinking preventing the patient's comfortable enough breathing.
Although this condition has genetic sides, they have later acquired aspects:
1. There is a familial predisposition.
2. However, environmental factors that facilitate disclosure this allergic predisposition are also in question.
The strong stresses are located at the top of these factors. Than air sacs in the lung begins to narrow due to pollen, house dust, or any other reason. This situation is settled as repeated, and finally sits as asthma.
This situation is repeated when faced with this situation allergic to the patient’s body. Disease progresses with repeated attacks. Sometimes these exacerbations occur with hidden allergenic substances secreted by the body itself without any allergic external factors.
By drilling down to the base of this discomfort, the balance between two basic reflex systems in the body is seen to deteriorate. These are the sympathetic system and the parasympathetic system. Asthma is a discomfort of the parasympathetic system more active than the sympathetic system. It is essential to restore the balance between systems by stimulating the sympathetic system.
Drugs used in therapy are drugs improved to that effect. This balancing effort with drugs, may give result as long as drugs are used. When medication is stopped, disease refreshes. This is the reason why asthma is in the chronic disease class. To achieve full recovery within modern medicine has not been possible so far.
Similar methods are used for effects in the treatment of asthma with acupuncture. The sympathetic nervous system is stimulated while the parasympathetic system suppressed, and this balance is placed with repeated sessions. Obtaining complete heal is possible mostly with a total of 12 sessions by 2 sessions per week of 6 weeks.
Disease recovery rate is extremely high. The frequency of relapse after discontinuation of treatment within a year is virtually nonexistent. After a year, a support treatment of 3 sessions is made. Thus the effect obtained is made more established. The next 1 supportive therapy sessions is often enough to end the disease.
Brain always controls and evaluates the whole body. It determines all the normal levels of all values and tries to balance the body according to these values. Levels of many substances like our weight, body temperature, blood sugar, calcium, salt and potassium are inspected and the balance is provided with the help of the neural and hormonal mechanisms.
When there is a deviation in these measurement criteria which are determined as the balance sense or balance level of the human brain, problems start to occur. These problems are the basic factor behind many chronic illnesses.
For example if our brain has determined the normal blood pressure as 160/90 mmHg (16/9), whatever we use or do, it will be 16/9 again.
This perception/criteria problem of the brain shall be solved. This arrangement forms the most important part of acupuncture therapy. Blood vessels are relieved and the function of kidney is arranged with the therapy.
After a 12 hour therapy, the patient is more peaceful, his/her blood pressure is at normal levels although s/he hasn’t used any medicine.
After almost a year, the brain is reminded by a one fourth of the first therapy and the treatment is ended or is continued for a while by making the sessions less frequent.
What is sinus?
Our brain is a structurally sensitive organ especially to hot and cold. Therefore, it is located in the most safeguarded part of our bodies. The hairy skin in the area except the face protects outwardly. The places where the hair cannot protect the brain in the face, the sinuses are responsible for the protection. In these places, there are cavities in the bones like airbags. These cavities are connected to nasal cavity by means of channels. This is what called as sinus.
What is sinusitis?
The inside of the sinuses are full of air normally; as they are full of inflammation it is called sinusitis. The cells of mucosa (special type of skin) covering the air bags called sinus moisturize and clean the sinuses by means of secrete slippery, slimy liquid. Normally sinuses are full of air and, their walls are slippery, wet and sterile.
In the nasal diseases such as cold the channels of the sinuses connecting to the nasal cavity are chocked. The air in the sinuses is consumed by the mucosa cells, therefore negative pressure occurs inside of the sinus and besides it brings pain. Later, the increasing negative pressure swallows the unsterilized nasal cavity fluid like an injector. The sinuses get full with nasal discharge. In this stage sinusitis starts. The pain becomes a strong headache.
In the next stage, the microbes create the inflammation, therefore the level of the fluid increases, the pressure increases and the strong headaches occur. This is exactly ‘acute sinusitis’.
The treatment of sinusitis
While microbial growth is halted by means of antibiotics, the increasing fluid is reduced by means of chemicals, and it is tried to clear out inside of the sinus by opening the channel by means of medicines such as the nasal sprays. The patients having sinusitis recover by means of correct and regular treatment for a week.
How does sinusitis become chronic?
There are a few reasons for chronic sinusitis. Unless acute sinusitis is treated successfully, the disease continues. Longer processes destroy the structure of mucosa and the disease become chronic. Or else the channel of sinus connecting to nasal cavity gets chocked because of the diseases such as allergic cold and the acute sinusitis occurs many times. Therefore the smooth, slippery and wet structure of mucosa is destroyed, which causes sinusitis.
How is chronic sinusitis treated?
There is no treatment for chronic sinusitis in orthodox medicine. Although the channel is opened by means of surgical interventions, the mucosa cannot be renewed. However it is possible to treat chronic sinusitis and renew the tissues by means of acupuncture.
In the acupuncture treatment for sinusitis, the illnesses destroying the structure of nasal cavity such as cold is treated and the sinus mucosa membrane is renewed by means of acupuncture. Therefore, the patients relive from chronic sinusitis which causes strong headaches.

Brain tissue largely remains a mystery for medical science, although to some extent resolved. Migraine is one of disorders of this mysterious field. Therefore, to say that the results are satisfactory within modern medicine does not seem possible now.
However, acupuncture is successfully used in treating migraines. The ear acupuncture method recognized and developed by western doctors while working on traditional methods, started to gain a place without an alternative among modern treatment protocols as an easy and permanent cure for migraine disease. Therapy usually takes 12 sessions unless there is another condition. Two sessions per week, six weeks of treatment is sufficient.
With acupuncture treatment, the balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems which are two different macro- reflex systems of the body is re-established and oxygen and energy use roads of the brain is rehabilitated. Blood pressure can be regulated easily. At the end, the enduring success can be achieved.
A person gaining more weight or having a body weight of more than usual, is not only associated with food intake more than you need. It is possible for two people to have different weights even if they take the same calories. Many hormones are involved directly or indirectly in this case. For permanent treatment embodiment on the appetite only is not enough, an overall configuration is needed.
Specific point stimuli used in acupuncture, influence the elimination of excess fat in the body in several ways:
• reduces the appetite by affecting appetite center and contributes to fall to within normal limits. Even in some sensitive individuals, completely closed appetite has been observed.
• eliminates chronic fatigue by regulating some nervous system hormones - for example, such as serotonin -.
• facilitates the removal of ‘lactic acid’ from the body which causes physical fatigue by increasing the excretion of water from the body.
• facilitates the achievement of an overall serenity by regulating some stress hormones.
• improves the benefit of sleep by regulating sleep. Therefore, it allows for daily activities to be done easily and increases vitality.
The effect of an acupuncture treatment by considering these points usually continues after treatment.
Acupuncture, will help you to diet freely by reducing appetite and stress, and exercise as long as you wish by reducing fatigue. A low calorie diet distributed in a balanced way throughout the day and activity away from the stress increases the rate of energy expended is the path to success.
Sleep is self-renewal and maintenance process of our bodies tired with daily activities, by minimizing the vital functions. Therefore, it’s among such necessities such as eating and drinking. Deterioration in the order or quality of sleep undercuts the repair and maintenance functions of the body slows down removal of the harmful products formed during the day from the body and cell regeneration gets suspended.
If this condition becomes permanent, general fatigue and exhaustion is inevitable. Currently, sleep disturbances constitute the largest section within the cause of chronic fatigue.
Disorders can be divided into two parts discussed under the heading of sleep disorders. First, the problems such as insomnia or inability to sleep reduce the total time of sleep. Patients usually take available chemicals called 'sleep medication' to be able to get enough sleep. Secondly, despite the total time spent asleep is an adequate, inability to wake up rested and morning fatigue problems.
In modern medicine, while drugs are used to make patient to fall asleep easier and wake up more difficult in the problems such as inability to sleep, depression medications are preferred in the case of inability to wake up rested even the time spent asleep is an adequate which constitutes the second half of sleep problems.
In the treatment of diseases in acupuncture centers that facilitate the transition of the body to sleep are activated, centers providing alertness during the day in a balanced way are also stimulated. Thus, the order of the sleep is converted into its original state, and daytime alertness is provided neatly.
Sleep problems takes place in a rapid-response to acupuncture group in disorders which can be treated by acupuncture. The total duration of treatment generally should not exceed 12 sessions. Sleep and wakefulness without the use of drugs after treatment can be easily maintained.
Hearing loss which can be called as “the sound of silence “ is the most unforeseen causes of tinnitus.
If I open with an example, there is a condition similar to this case in medicine. This discomfort, people who lost limbs due to the amputation of arms or legs for any reason, feel a severe pain accompanying non- existence of this truncated limbs called 'phantom pains’ in medicine.
Sometimes our brain fills the place of this quietness which is not accustomed to with pure and continuous sound in a similar manner of sound resonance also seen in sound system with microphone. We perceive it as tinnitus. If the hearing loss will be fixed in a way, unresolved effort of the brain will disappear spontaneously.
Our treat method in our clinic is based on this logic: it is pointless to fight flies, swamps must be dried. With acupuncture treatment, declined special hearing problem of the patient is diligently and successfully corrected. Thus, recognizable or unrecognizable hearing problems are corrected and tinnitus is removed permanently.
