Edema an abnormal accumulation of fluid beneath the skin or in one or more cavities of the body or tissues caused by build-up of fluid in the spaces between cells that produces swelling. Edema may be local – that is, limited to one part of the body – or it may affect tissues throughout the body.
Local edema commonly results when injured capillaries leak their contents into nearby tissue spaces. The most common cause of general edema is heart problem. When a weak heart does not circulate the blood effectively, the kidneys cannot remove enough water and salt from the bloodstream. As a result, the blood volume increases and excess liquid seeps into the body tissues, particularly the legs and lungs. The condition is called pulmonary edema when excess fluid accumulates in the lungs, causing shortness of breath.
Edema also often results if poor diet, liver disease, or kidney disease causes a drop in the protein content of the blood plasma. Proteins in the blood plasma play a major role in the blood’s ability to keep fluid. High-protein diets help to correct this type of edema.
Problems with lymphatic drainage cause lymphedema. This condition often requires long periods of bed rest, with the affected body parts raised and tightly wrapped to reduce swelling.
The following factors can give to the formation of edema:
~ Increased hydrostatic pressure
~ Reduced oncotic pressure within blood vessels.
~ Increased blood vessel wall permeability e.g. inflammation
~ Obstruction of fluid clearance via the lymphatic system
~ Changes in the water retaining properties of the tissues themselves. Raised hydrostatic pressure often reflects retention of water and sodium of the kidney.
The traditional theory of ACUPUNCTURE Onnuri SuJok states that an abnormal accumulation of watery fluid in tissues, cavities of body, often causing visible swelling and not properly distributed, actively full of waters; dropsy, liquids. Initially wind energy disburse – the accumulated fluids that are not coming up. One should focus on humidity energy, which is the dominant one. If stagnated, it will make pressure on tissues, feeling of heaviness be it any part of the body <legs, heart=””>.
Onnuri SuJok itself is a powerful medicine, which aids in strengthening the system and serves to prevent diseases, control pain and increases both the ability to work as well as quality of lives. It has helped many who were not successfully treated through conventional western medicine. Several conditions can be dramatically improved or remedied in full including Edema.
