Auricular Diagnosis and Treatment of Common Diseases with Auricular Therapy.
Auricular diagnosis is a supplementary diagnostic method of examining the external ear according to the basic theory of TCM and anatomical projection. Any disorder of the body may result in corresponding appearance on the auricle. The purpose of auricular diagnosis is to find various positive reflecting indications, such as color change, sensitive points, substantial mass and electrical resistance changes occurring on any part of the ear's surface. These changes help identify the disease's location and nature.

Nearly 100 common diseases treated with auricular therapy including: Acne, Appendicitis, Bronchial Asthma, Bronchitis, Cataract, Coronary Heart Disease, Diabetes Mellitus, Epilepsy, Female Infertility, Gastric and Duodenal Ulcers, Glaucoma, Headache, Hypertension, Insomnia, Menopause Syndrome, Migraine, Pneumonia, Psoriasis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Simple Obesity, Smoking Habit, Sprain and Contusion, the Common Cold, Tinnitus, Tonsillitis, Ulcerative Colitis, Ureteral Stones, Uterine Bleeding, Whooping Cough, and much more.

The description of each disease involves clinical manifestations, treatments and remarks. Clinical manifestation: the chief clinical symptoms and signs. Treatment: the prescription of acupuncture points, acupuncture manipulations, and some clinical cases. remarks: selecting points and manipulations according to the clinical feature, brief introduction of some clinical experiences and some recent important advances in acupuncture.
