Introduction


Set out below are examples of treatments for major illnesses encountered in everyday practice and which respond to auricular acupuncture. These examples take into account points according to the Chinese school and points according to Nogier.


To a far greater extent than body acupuncture, auricular acupuncture is a mixture of points



  1. which are taken pragmatically from the micro somatope,
  2. which comply with the theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and
  3. which arise from pathophysiological, orthodox Western medical theories. (Point selection according to Chinese criteria has already been referred to on p. 32.)

The beginner will initially restrict himself/herself to the points of the somatope (a lung disease is treated via the Lung Point; a disease of the Lumbar Vertebrae Zone [LVZ] is treated in the LVZ section in the auricula) and to the points according to Western pathophysiological findings (an allergic illness is treated via the ACTH Point or the Adrenal Gland Point to exert an influence on glucocorticoid metabolism or to promote adrenergic hormonal influence).


From a traditional Chinese viewpoint, the advanced student will select points which relate, for example, to the Theory of Five Elements. Thus, arterial hypertension can be treated pragmatically in the blood pressure–reduction furrow but, according to the TCM perspective, regulated via the Liver Point (stores the blood, regulates excessive liver yang) and Heart Point (moves the blood).


The selection of Nogier points is always individual to the patient depending on the acute findings (active auricular acupuncture points). Experience shows that the additional auricular acupuncture points specified according to Nogier can frequently be found as active auricular acupuncture points in the corresponding illnesses. However, it should be pointed out once again that auricular acupuncture points should not be used rigidly according to predetermined point combinations but according to the examination findings based on active points.


Nonetheless, it is a useful aid for the beginner to use the predetermined points as a guide.


Internal and Psychosomatic Disorders


(D. Mühlhoff, H.-U. Hecker)


Acupuncture or auricular acupuncture can be a supportive treatment option in treating psychosomatic illnesses. Fixed treatment programs cannot be specified, though. The corresponding complaints form the basis for point selection, with individual circumstances being taken into account.

image Here, combination with body acupuncture has in particular proved its worth. A basic formula in the treatment of pollinosis via body acupuncture are the points LI-4, LI-11, Ex-HN-1, BL-2, LI-20.


image Retuning of the immune system as part of the treatment of pollinosis is useful. This can be done with small amounts of the patient’s own blood (up to 0.5 mL). The addition of a homeopathic retuning remedy such as Formic Acid D 6 has also proved worthwhile.

Gynecological Disorders


(K.-H. Junghanns †)


Numerous gynecological disorders upon which drugs have little or no effect can be successfully treated with the aid of acupuncture. In some cases in which a pregnancy only permits the taking of drugs in accordance with strict indications, it is often the only option for responsible treatment. Treatment via the ear has proved particularly advantageous. On the auricula we find not only all the points which are also suitable for acupuncture on the body, but also special points which influence the psyche and hormone production. Proven indications are dysmenorrhea, female sterility for hormonal reasons, and menopausal complaints, above all those accompanied by depressive moods.


During pregnancy, emesis/hyperemesis, imminent abortion, and ischialgia-type complaints may be successfully treated. In hospital it is above all postoperative and postpartum pain, in particular, as well as carcinoma pain, postoperative or postpartum urination problems which respond well to acupuncture.


I. Gerhard and F. Postneek from the Gynecological Clinic at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, conducted a study on the treatment of female sterility for hormonal reasons. The greatest successes were with gestagen-positive amenorrhea with normal base hormones and with hyperandrogenemia. The results were comparable with drug treatment but without the unpleasant side effects.


Migraine is a complex disorder which can be triggered by many influences. However, migraine often also has a hormonal component. In uncomplicated migraine, there are no attacks during pregnancy; however, in the case of migraine with aura (flickering before the eyes, impaired sensibility, and vomiting), these attacks also occur during pregnancy. Attention should be paid to this during treatment. Acupuncture treatment is naturally particularly suitable for the treatment of migraine in pregnancy because of the risk attached to taking drugs. In this connection, reference should also be made to the appearance of allergies during pregnancy. Here again, treatment with acupuncture is preferable to treatment with drugs.
