I’m sorry, but with such a condition with serious and chronic underlying conditions you will need to find a practitioner in your local area to seek proper treatment. Technically there are acupuncture and herbal treatments for hydrocephalus but they would depend greatly on the persons diagnosis in Chinese Medicine terms and their other health conditions. There is very little that can be offered generally.

If, however, you can get an appropriate diagnosis from the western medicine side - not suspicions, then I might be able to guide your further.

Generally you try to treat the deeper symptoms, so our acupuncture for diabetes page may be helpful.

A base or a guide towards a general protocol for hydrocephalus might look like: GV 20, Sishencong, GV 17, GB 20, CV 9, CV 3, SP 9, SP 6, KD 7, GV 14, UB 32, ST 36.
