Traditional Therapeutics - Hypertension


Chinese Etiology:

There are two essential causes of Hypertension:

  1. Hypertension may be caused by a deficiency of Yin Kidney caused by the following: Over use of the Will and mental thought which weakens the Blood; excessive sexual activity; blockage of the Ancestral energy; etc. These causes drive up the "Wind of the Liver" accompanied by "Liver Fire". Symptoms include lack of physical strength accompanied by exhaustion of the Spirit, headache, dizziness, palpitation, insomnia, pulse-small and wiry. Apply Tonification** method on points UB-23 (Shen-Shu), K-3 (T'ai-Hsi), and UB-15 (Hsin-Shu). Sedate the points Liv-2 (Hsing-Chien) and Liv-3 (T'ai-Ch'ung).
  2. Hypertension may be caused by the Glairy Mucus in combination with the Fire of the Liver being transformed into Wind caused by: Overeating (leading to an accumulation of Glairy Mucus); excessive consumption of spicy foods or alcoholic beverages; or psychic disturbances of the Energy of the Liver (anger). Symptoms include pain in the ribs; dizziness and paralysis of the limbs; thirst and mental depression; pulse-wiry, sliding and forceful; white, greasy or yellowish fur on the tongue.
