DOES ACUPUNCTURE RESOLVE DIGESTIVE CONDITIONS LIKE:
Acid Reflux | Colitis | Spastic Colon | Constipation | Diarrhea
Acid reflux (sometimes referred to as GERD) results from a partial closing of the esophageal valve to the stomach. Heartburn results frequently and can lead to more serious health issues if left untreated. No one answer for this ailments’ cause can be provided. Stress, smoking and certain foods will surely irritate everyone suffering from reflux problems. Acupuncturists stimulate certain points to reduce sphincter relaxation conditions. Relief is certain unless there is a hiatal hernia present or if the patient suffers from bulimia disorders.
Gastritis, colitis and spastic colon all may result from the inflammation of the stomach linine and intestine. Excessive alcohol, over-use of aspirin or long term use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs will contribute to these conditions. Abdominal upset and pain along with vomiting and black stools or burning in one’s upper abdomen are all signs of these conditions. Traditional Chinese practitioners pay close attention to these symptoms and can prescribe treatments to lessen the symptoms associated. Changes in diet and social habits may be mandatory to gain relief. Such determinations have to be made on a patient to patient basis. Acupuncture treatment remains an effective means of reducing chronic pain and discomfort resulting from distresses to the organs involved. The options for successfully treating these conditions should be discussed at length with the acupuncturist.
