Clinical Pearls about Doing Moxa to Certain Points
CV 8 – for cholera – very effective – 20x – direct moxa – ½ peanut size – fill the navel with salt so that it is level with the abdomen. A blister will probably form; don’t break it. Apply Ching Wan Hung to the burn. Better a burn than to die of cholera.
CV 10 – for abdominal tumors – 27x each day till you reach 100
GV 2 - Yao Yu (loins yu) – bed wetting in children
UB 15 – Shin Yu (heart yu) – for stuttering and speech difficulties in children, moxa 3-5x
UB 23 – Shen Yu (kidney yu) – moxa 1x for each year of life (but not for boys under 20)
UB 28 – Pang Guang Yu (bladder yu) – for treatment of genital herpes outbreaks, moxa 3-7x
UB 67 - Jih Yin (extremity of yin) – for breech birth, moxa direct 7x; for dysuria, spermatorrhea, urinary incontinence, moxa 1 to 7 x
XB 1 - Pee Gun (root of tumor) – This point is located 3.5 divisions lateral from under the 12th thoracic vertebra. It is quite useful for treating both benign and malignant tumors systemically. 10 direct moxa rice grain size. Wait 14 days between treatments.
