I would like to join this discusion. My main reason for this is because i am planing of performing a cosmetic ear surgery ''in the future''.
I am aware that this is a selective surgery and i am still not 100% convinced whethere i should do it, but for now lets say i do proceed with it. Since i am in the phase of exploring TCM i know that ears are very delicate organs which are connected to the rest of the body in a very intimate way. In cosmetic ear surgery the front side of the ear (which is packed with points) isn't touch, only the rear side where cartilage meets the soft end on the ear, where the natural arc/bow exists. I am not sure if any acu points exist there? If yes, feel free to tell me.
The incision is rather small, since in the end it is an ear, it can't be deep even if somebody wanted it to be. A small scar oftenly remains on the back side which isn't visible unless the ear itself is folded.
A lot of people had cosmetic ear surgeries, Brad Pitt the famous actor had it so have many others which seem in a very good condition right now, also a vast number of young childer undergoo this ''routine'' surgery without any effect later on.
Here is where i cross the line-if you don't like your ears, they are probably creating a sort of a negative energy themselves and if after the surgery you feel better, happier, can the scars damage your health?
What happens if you cut your hand and have a huge scar on it? The hand is also a part of micro acupunture and is connected to entire body? Does this mean if you cut your hand deep you can say goodbye to normal life becaue you will have multiple ilnesses?
What happens to people who lose their hand,arm, feet, leg, EAR (as Mike Tyson bite the ear of Evander Holyfield) ?
God and mother nature gave us an ability to regenerate our selves to a certain degree, since it is not perfect we are left with scars (unlike say Salamanders whos regenerative abilities are near perfect, they can even repair a heart that is cut in half)
To continue, God and mother nather also gave us numerous energy points which are located trought the body. Wouldn't it be cruel to let a small scar destroy a body in a slow fashion just because it is on an energy point?
I am guessing this is way we have many micro puncture as well as macro puncture points on our body. We should realise that the intelegence of our body is imense and i agree it can repear and shape itself to save such an important system as energy meridians.
Have any of the practicioners here ever encountered a pacient who had cosmetic ear surgery? Have you ever checked their ears with acu point locators etc?
If someone would like to add something, please..
