Of many possible clinical applications, it may be considered to influence the following issues/symptoms:
A single acupuncture point is not commonly thought of as an empirical way to influence a TCM diagnostic pattern. UB7, however, is a strong candidate to be incorporated into an acupuncture protocol for patients who exhibit: Lung Wind Invasion - Wind Heat
UB 7 may potentially be used, in coordination with a well designed acupuncture treatment protocol, to influence the following conditions: Fainting (Loss of Consciousness), Headache, Nasal Polyps, Neck Pain, Nosebleed (Epistaxis), Rhinitis, Sinus Infection and/or Sinusitis
