In Chinese medicine, the ears are connected to the kidney’s energy. So when doing the evaluation, the acupuncturist must evaluate other symptoms that are associated to the kidney in order to determine its energy status. He must also check the liver’s energy (gallbladder), as this is the key element of any type of inflammation (otitis, tonsillitis, bursitis, tendonitis).
Given the fact that the symptoms of dizziness are related to the gallbladder, it’s also important to check for other symptoms such as: a mouth that tastes bitter or headaches in the temporal region.
Fatigue is also an important factor of labyrinthitis. It is clear that a state of continued fatigue weakens our resistance to viruses and bacteria and we become more susceptible to various infections. That being said, the Chinese medicine considers the spleen/pancreas duo to be the creator of the body’s overall energy, and in which case, should be evaluated. Consequently the energy of the kidney, liver (gallbladder) and spleen / pancreas should carefully be examined and corrected if necessary.
All in all, and in our experience, several treatments (seven or more) are required to treat labyrinthitis. In order to release the liver’s energy (gallbladder) and to invigorate the kidney and spleen/pancreas it takes a certain amount of time, especially when an energetic void has been the source of this infection for such a long period. Moreover, Chinese herbology is beneficial in these cases and can even accelerate healing.
