12.Deafness

Name: Zeng Xintong
Date: 2000-06-12

The 3-year-old female presented with a history of deafness of a week. One week before she came her families found she was inactive in reacting to others'hail. In 201 Hospital of PLA the test of hearing showed she was deaf in some degree, but her families didn't keep down the result of test. She was told to take some antibiotic but no improvement was achieved. As no epimedium, no emotional inducement, we thought of a wisdom from the ancient TCM doctors:"Take the spllen-stomatch while no ways".After asking the parents we learned she prefered cold or freezing drink but off her food. She often sweat and cry for testiness at night. We found her tongue and its coating white which was a indication of dificency and cold of spleen-stomatch. In TCM,nine orifices,incluing ears can't work normally if the spleen-qi is deficient. So we selected points to warm interior and strenthen the spleen:Pushing-reinforcing Spleen Earth, Kneading Yiwofeng, Reverse-arc-pushing Neibagua, Pushing Sihengwen, Pushing-reinforcing Kidney Water, Kneading Wailaogong, Kneading Errenshangma,etc. Eight days later her hearing resumed. One year after that she got deafness a second time and combined with cough,snuffle and yellow nasal mucus. In hospital her multiplier-body was found hypertrophy. She often got up crying and beated others at night in unconsciousness. She had a history of excessive eating peppery food such as barbecue. Her tongue was red and its fur was yellow. Her stool was dry and her urine yellow. Selected points:Pushing-reinforcing Kidney Water, Push-clearing Tianheshui, Pushing-clearing Banmen, Pushing Sihengwen, Kneading Zhongjin, Kneading Xiaotianxin, Kneading Xiaohengwen, Push-clearing Lung Metal, Push-withdrawing Xialiufu, Kneading Errenshangma,etc. After ten days of Tuina massage she resumed again.
