So, with my patient’s permission, I am giving below the points I used for the first 7 treatments of a patient who came to me with severe psoriasis all over her body, and who is now, some 3 months later, almost completely symptom-free. When I first saw her, the whole of her body was covered with large bright-red psoriatic patches of skin. When I saw her this week, these patches were now normal skin-coloured outlines still faintly visible against the remainder of healthy skin, so that where, before, the eye was shocked by all these violent blood-red patches, now they have faded over the whole body. Much of the upper body is completely restored to health, another confirmation, if confirmation is needed, that the Law of Cure which we all learned about at college is indeed true. Impurities do leave the body from the top downwards, her back and upper body being now completely free of any signs of psoriasis, and only faint, normal skin-coloured outlines remaining from the waist down. Her recovery has also been speeded up by the fact the she has been quite happy to discontinue the application of any cortisone cream which she was using on exposed part of the body before she came to me.
So here is the treatment I gave her. I diagnosed her element from the start as being Wood, and I am still happy with this diagnosis. I applied moxa cones to each point, and used tonification needling technique (except of course for AE!). I have given the number of moxa cones for Bl 38 (43) in the list below, as these vary. The number of moxa cones for other points are those given in JR Worsley’s well-known point location chart.
Treatment 1: No AE, GB 40, Liv 3Treatment 2: (a week later): Bl 38 (43) (7 moxa cones), Liv 4, GB 37
Treatment 3: (a further week later) Bl 38 (43), (11 moxa cones), GB 40, Liv 3
Treatment 4: (3 weeks later: I was away in
Treatment 5: (2 weeks later) : Bl 38 (43), 7 moxas, GB 20 (no moxa because on the hair line), GB 40, Liv 3
Treatment 6: (3 weeks later): GB 25, Liv 4
Treatment 7: (3 weeks later): GV 24, GB 40, Liv 3.
Because her skin is recovering so well, we have scheduled her next appointment to be in 6 weeks’ time, but I have told her to phone me for an earlier appointment if any red psoriatic patches re-appear.
Thank you, Elly, for letting me write about your treatment!
