APLASTIC ANAEMIA TREATMENT
APLASTIC ANAEMIA, ABNORMAL BONE MARROW, BLOOD'S YIN DEEFICIENCY BY MALAYSIA Chinese Master's NEURO ACUPUNCTURE HERBAL treatment
Aplasia means the lack of development of a tissue, cell or other body part. Aplastic anemiais the condition in which the bone marrow fails to produce enough normal blood cells. Normally, the bone marrow produces:
- red blood cells (which carry oxygen in the blood)
- various types of white blood cell (which are part of the immune system)
- platelets (which are involved in blood clotting).
These different types of blood cell originate from simpler cells, known as precursors or stem cells, which develop into the more specialized forms.
There are numerous reasons for the bone marrow to fail to produce blood cells in adequate numbers, but in Aplastic anemia there is a marked deficiency of all the precursor cells that should mature into adult blood cells.
Aplastic anemia is a rare disease with an incidence in developed countries of between 5 and 10 cases per million per year.
In 65 per cent of people the cause of Aplastic anemia is unknown (the technical term is 'idiopathic'). Rarely, the disease is present at birth (congenital). The commonest congenital form is Franconia’s syndrome, but fewer than 1000 cases have ever been described. As well as Aplastic anemia, patients with Franconia’s syndrome have short stature, abnormal skin pigmentation, abnormalities of the bones of their arms and thumbs, kidney problems and an elfin-like appearance. A characteristic abnormality of the chromosomes (random breaks) is seen.
HAY FEVER AND PERENNIAL ALLERGIC ECZEMA CURE treatment OF MALAYSIA Chinese Master's ACUPUNCTURE HERBAL MEDICINE TREATMENT
Hay Fever Allergy
People with hay fever allergy usually experience:
- Constant sneezing.
- Watery and bloodshot eyes.
- Itching of nose, eyes, skin, ear canal, and/or soft palate.
- Runny and stuffy nose.
- Trouble in sleeping.
Hay fever occurs when there are foreign “invaders” entering your body by swallowing, through skin, or by inhalation. Most of the time, specific allergen is difficult to identify because it may happened without knowing the type of invaders.
ATOPIC ECZEMA (HAY FEVER, ASTHMA) - RESEARCH BY MALAYSIA Chinese Master's ACUPUNCTURE AND HERBAL TREATMENT
Definitions Atopy is the general medical term for allergic conditions such as hay fever, asthmaor this type of eczema. People with a tendency to suffer from allergic conditions are said to be atopic. About 15 per cent of the population is affected by one ormore atopic conditions in their life. Atopic eczema affects about 15 per cent of children and up to 5 per cent of adults in the UK.
Immune system of people with atopic eczema is active in a particular way. They especially make large amounts of a protein called IgE. IgE is one of a handful of proteins called immunoglobulin or antibodies, the purpose of which are to act as catalysts for the protective cells of the immune system to recognize and lock on to the protein components of foreign invaders. IgE is present in small amounts in everyone. However, in atopic eczema more is produced because of increased sensitivity to substances which are inhaled or eaten, or substances in contact with the skin. These could be animal dander, foodstuffs, house dust mite, chemicals or bacteria or yeasts that live on the skin in everyone and usually cause no problems. Most individuals with atopic eczema react to all of these things to varying degrees.
The major difference between atopic eczema, allergic contact eczema ('dermatitis') and irritant contact eczema is that in the first two the immune reaction sits in the middle and determines whether an individual will or will not react. In irritant contact eczema the antigen-antibody system is bypassed and the skin reaction occurs as a direct result of the chemical effects of the irritant on the skin. In allergic contact eczema the person slowly develops a skin reaction to a specific substance that has been in contact with their skin.
FEATURES OF ATOPIC ECZEMA-RESEARCH BY MALAYSIA Chinese Master's ACUPUNCTURE AND HERBAL TREATMENT ON ECZEMA CURE
The first episode of atopic eczema can be delayed to adulthood the majority of people have a history that goes back to their childhood. About half of affected children show improvement by the age of six and 60 per cent by the age of 14.
About 60 per cent of people have a family history of at least one of the atopic conditions. This points to genetic links to atopy but the relationship is complex. A combination of genetics and environmental exposures probably determine whether an individual develops atopic eczema, but we do not yet know what the most important influences are.
Main symptom, as with all types of eczema, is itch. Generally the skin is dry but the most affected skin looks red (itch and a bit pain), with a slightly raised but ill-defined margin when the eczema is active. Lumps or blisters, some oozing of fluid from the skin surface and scaling of the skin are all features of flare-ups. After the acute episodes the skin will settle down, which is a bit less irritating looks but shows more in the way of thickening, scoring and darkening of the skin where it is most scratched.
Children usually affects the face and as they get a bit older the rash spreads to the body and limbs. The napkin area is usually spared although it may be inflamed from the effect of urine or the overgrowth of yeast organisms on the skin (thrush). White children tend to get the most trouble on the flexures- the skin creases on the meeting surfaces of the joints. Elbows, wrists, behind the knees and fronts of the anklesare typical. Black and Asian children tend to be affected on the opposite side of the joints, such as the point of the elbow or front of the knees. Adults show more involvement of the face and trunk again.
Superficial infection of the skin causes increased redness and heat, weeping and perhaps crusting. Small blisters may contain pus. Infected eczema does not usually give signs of general infection such as a raised temperature.
For the severe cases they may even faint or go unconscious.
Tests The diagnosis of atopic eczema is usually quite straightforward on the basis of the symptoms, appearance and positive family history of atopy. Although blood tests will be likely to show generally raised levels of the IgE antibody this is not in itself either necessary or helpful to the doctor. The IgE RAST test (a blood test) looks at more specific allergens such as general food groups, house dust mite and animal dander. However, these should be interpreted with caution and may only be useful for a proportion of individuals with eczema. Your doctor may perform a range of other allergy tests if he or she believes them to be beneficial.
