  • Objectives: I carried out this study for research on dizziness (瞑眩) reaction. Methods: I found 14 papers about dizziness reaction from 1994 to 2009 in China Academic Journal (CAJ) website, and synthesized these reports. Results: Dizziness reaction, presupposing that the diagnosis and treatments are correct, is a peculiar reaction which occurs with severe and various symptoms temporarily diverging from regular course. As dizziness reaction disappears, the symptoms of the disease are improved. Though it mostly occurs rapidly and disappears in a short time, it can occur after a long treatment or occur gradually in chronic diseases. As a general rule, the faster dizziness reaction occurs, the more severe the reaction. The faster dizziness reaction disappears, the quicker the recovery from illness. Upon catching a disease, healthy qi(正氣) and the pathogen (邪氣) fight each other. Just at that moment, if the medicine or acupuncture treatment hits the mark of the pathogen (邪氣), healthy qi(正氣) attacks the origin of the disease in full force. Thus, all symptoms disappear at a time and various reactions occur which we can't accurately determine. So, we can call it 'Right action', 'Improving reaction' or 'Adjusting reaction'. Conclusions: It is difficult for us to predict whether a dizziness reaction will occur. Thus, we don't have to seek dizziness reaction blindly, and must distinguish dizziness reaction from side effects or toxic effects. So, we must pay more close attentions to symptom changes.

  • Objectives To determine the effectiveness of Chuna manual therapy combined acupuncture for trigeminal neuralgia. Methods We searched 6 electronic databases (Pubmed, CAJ, Oasis, RISS, DBPIA, KoreanTK) and 2 journals up to August 2016. We included randomized controlled trials (RCTs) using Chuna manual therapy combined acupuncture for trigeminal neuralgia. The methodological quality of each RCT was assessed by the Cochrane risk of bias tool. Results 3 RCT studies were eligible in our review. The meta-analysis of 3 studies showed favorable results for the use of Chuna manual therapy combined acupuncture. High risk of bias were observed in all studies. Conclusions Although there are favorable results with meta-analysis, our systematic review are highly dependent on the single source of Chinese electrical database, CAJ. Now limited evidence is available to support Chuna manual therapy combined acupuncture for trigeminal neuralgia and further well-designed RCTs should be encouraged.
