Ub 19 has the following theoretical associations which serve as important guideposts in designing an effective treatment protocol:
A single acupuncture point is not commonly thought of as an empirical way to influence a TCM diagnostic pattern. UB19, however, is a strong candidate to be incorporated into an acupuncture protocol for patients who exhibit: Liver and Gallbladder Damp Heat and/or Stomach Rebellious Qi
