Autism

Chinese Medicine Differentiation for Autism According to pediatrician, Dr. Quan Wan in the Ming Dynasty, his book written in 1579 AD, “Secrets to Take Care of Infants and Toddlers,” he indicated that children’s natural characteristics are that the liver and heart always have excess heat. The spleen, lung, and kidney tend to be deficient. Taking good care of the stomach and spleen is the root of good health in the future. Possible causes of autism: Autism Spectrum Disorder in Chinese medicine differentiation is called Wuchi, Wuruan, (five delays, five weaknesses), Ganji(middle burner stagnation). The pre-natal factor (Kidney Qi Deficiency) starts inside the mother’s womb. Pregnant women under stress and lacking sleep, causes the newborn’s Kidney Qi Deficiency. The post-natal factor (Spleen Qi Deficiency) starts with the newborn’s digestive system. A nursing mother’s diet affects her newborn tremendously. If the mother is overstressed regarding her child, this would cause her Liver Qi to stagnate. This in turn, overacts on her child’s spleen. Additional factors include environmental pollution, vaccinations, magnetic field pollution such as television, computer, cell phone, and microwave, food additives, preservatives, growth hormones to animals and chemicals such as pesticides and fertilizers to our plants.

Eczema

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) sees eczema as a symptom of other diseases. If a person has eczema, there are imbalances in his or her body that affect overall health.  These imbalances are caused by three main pathogenic factors: Wind, Dampness, Heat: 

Different combinations of these pathogens, or illness-causing elements, produce different forms of eczema.  For instance, acute eczema often results from damp heat in the lungs and spleen while chronic eczema is a more severe form of acute eczema and is aggravated by constant exposure to dampness. Eczema in infants is caused by a combination of a weak spleen and stomach, damp heat, and wind exposure. Eczema around the eyes is caused by wind exposure, heat in the spleen, and damp heat.

Qi deficiency in kidneys will result in unable to receive or grasp air when breathing. Spleen is an essential organ in TCM. It is responsible for digestion and transforming food into essence, which transports to the lungs and other organs in the body. Qi deficiency in spleen can cause asthma when it is unable to transform and transport essence to the rest of the body.
