Treatment of snoring and apnoea with acupuncture
By Per Andersen
For some years ago some of my patients asked me if there was any treatment for snoring with acupuncture. I told them that I was sure that there must be a way to do so. But I had to disappoint them for a long time, because I could not find any cure in the literature or among my college.
I decided not to give up on that, I thought there must be a way to treat that kind of problems.
For many hours I thought about and investigated a lot of time in what coursed the problem, both in a western manner and how to solve the problem in a Chinese Medical way.
One thing that I noticed about snoring and apnoea was that people who were in coma had a problem with their respiration, because when you are in coma all of your muscle will be totally or near totally relaxed also in your throat.
That information leads me to find something that could regulate the depth of the sleep.
And that was the combination of K 6 Yinqiao reduced and B 62 yangqiao, tonified. Use B 1 Jingming as the meeting point for the two channels.
Besides that this points control the depth of the sleep Kidney 6 Yinqiao benefits the throat.
I did also included Li 4, Hegu and Li 20, Yingxiang pointing against Bitong, because lots of people in Denmark often suffer from rhinitis because of our weather condition. So this combination opens for the nose.
I give you this information because I like the idea to share information and knowledge like you do Shmuel.
I have at this moment treated about 200 patients from this formula with good results, more than 70% respond positively from snoring and about 85% of the patient with apnoea.
I would like to hear from any of you, if you get any results, both negative and positive.
