Abstract

Introduction: Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve, the health of which is vital for good vision. This damage is often caused by an abnormally high pressure in the eye.

Purpose: To demonstrate that glaucoma is a systemic disease, caused by internal energy imbalances.

Methods: This study was centered in a study performed at the São Paulo University, in the ophthalmology department, in the glaucoma section, studying the intra-ocular pressure of 4 patients that were in treatment of glaucoma. All patients were submitted to auricular acupuncture sessions and intra-ocular pressure were measured 15 and 30 minutes after this procedure. All this reasoning was based on one specific patient that I treated in 2006, that sought acupuncture due to pains in his legs. He also presented constipation and felt cold in his lower limbs. According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), his diagnosis was Blood and Kidney Yang Deficiency. Ten acupuncture sessions, twice a week, were performed. He presented great improvement in his leg pain, and stopped treatment. One month later, he returned to be re-evaluated, and described to have a surprising drop in his Intra Ocular Pressure (IOP) (reducing from 40 to 17 mmHg) even though I was not aware of the patient’s glaucoma condition.

Results: All patients evaluated had a reduction in the intra-ocular pressure after rebalancing the internal energy using auricular acupuncture associating with apex ear bloodletting.

Conclusion: The conclusion of this study is that glaucoma is a reflex of a systemic energy imbalance and the cause of the disease is not located only inside the eyes. So, it is important to know this cause of the formation of disease to treat the root of the problem, that is invisible by the naked eye associating with local treatment using eye drops, to achieve better results.
