Seriously Upset? Ease Digestive Complaints with Acupuncture

Don’t suffer from bloating or other digestive upsets!
Keep your body happy with acupuncture!

If indigestion, gas or bloating bother you more than just an occasional episode from overeating, acupuncture treatments can help!

Acupuncture heals the channels of the entire digestive system. It eases symptoms and discomfort immediately, relieving indigestion, stomach ache and acid reflux, heartburn, bloating and constipation.

Acupuncture is safe, natural, effective and drug-free, and is often more effective than prescription drugs.

In a 2007 University of Arizona study, people with chronic heartburn who didn’t respond to prescription antacids underwent acupuncture twice a week. Their symptoms improved far more than those of people who took a double dose of the drug. Their chest pain decreased 82 percent, heartburn dropped 83 percent, and acid reflux fell 77 percent.

Researchers found a decrease in stomach acid and that digestion sped up, so less acid backed up into the esophagus. “It also seems to reduce pain perception in the esophagus,” stated study coauthor Ronnie Fass, M.D.

Acupuncture is very helpful for many other common digestive disorders including:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Diarrhea
  • Excess Gas
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Chron’s Disease
  • Celiac Disease

Acupuncture may also benefit patients who find their symptoms are brought on or worsened by stress, anxiety and emotional issues. Acupuncture works to relieve the body of these stressors by helping to calm the nerves, inducing a state of relaxation.

Help your digestive system get strong and stay strong with acupuncture!

Here’s some helpful tips to combat bloating:

Take a walk – It doesn’t have to be a long walk, just enough physical movement to help stimulate digestion.

Be sure to chew your food thoroughly – Eating quickly can cause air swallowing that leads to bloating. You can decrease bloating simply by chewing your food more. This puts less pressure on your spleen, the system responsible for digestion in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Drink warm liquids – Avoid drinking cold liquids, especially with meals. The digestive organs are made of smooth muscle, and muscles like warmth. Ingesting cold will weaken the digestive system. Warm liquids will help it relax and gain strength over time, reducing bloating. Drink most fluids between meals and to only have small sips at meal time.

Get Gentle, Holistic Relief from Digestive Issues with Acupuncture!

Looking for effective relief from stomach or digestive issues? Get acupuncture!

Summer is the season for cookouts, parties, and lots of food-laden festivities. A little indigestion can happen this time of year, but for some, however, serious digestive issues are year round.

Acid reflux, or heartburn, is a common digestive complaint affecting approximately 44 percent of the adult U.S. population at least once a month, and 20 percent feel it at least once a week. Acid reflux is also called gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, and it can lead to more serious problems. Often pregnant women experience GERD, partly because the stomach has less room and contents are more easily upset.

Many people undergo dangerous surgery to heal acid reflux or take drugs that list serious side effects: irregular heartbeats, seizures, trouble breathing and a severe intestinal condition called Clostridium difficile. The great news is that you don’t need to take any of these risks when you heal your heartburn the natural way.

A 2007 study in the journal, “Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics, as well as a 2006 review in the Journal of Gastroenterology suggest that acupuncture may be a viable treatment option for gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, a chronic form of the condition.

Acupuncture heals the channels of the entire digestive system, curing the underlying causes of acid reflux. Acupuncture helps ease symptoms and discomfort immediately, and also relieves indigestion, and stomach ache.

Acupuncture may also benefit patients who find their symptoms are brought on or worsened by stress, anxiety and emotional issues. Acupuncture works to relieve the body of these stressors by helping to calm the nerves thus inducing a state of relaxation

Acupuncture is very helpful for many common digestive disorders including: 

  • Constipation
  • Acid Reflux
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Diarrhea
  • Bloating/excess gas
  • Heartburn
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Chron’s Disease
  • Celiac Disease

The best part? The treatment is safe, natural, effective and drug-free.

Digestive Disharmony? Acupuncture Tunes You Up!

Better Digestion with Acupuncture

Better Digestion with Acupuncture!

Bad digestion can make for a bad day. It is estimated that about 62 million Americans experience digestive problems on a regular basis. A digestive problem is a general term that covers a wide range of issues, all connected to the whole digestive tract, from throat, stomach, intestines, down to the rectum. These include colitis, diarrhea, heartburn, ulcers, constipation, and gastritis, among others. Some of these are chronic conditions, while others are merely passing issues caused by food poisoning, a bacterial or viral infection or a parasite in the colon.

Symptoms can range from mild discomfort to acute pain, or can manifest themselves in excessive vomiting or gas. Symptoms of digestive disorders may also include difficulty in concentration, fatigue, dry skin, hair loss, anemia, muscle cramps, low energy, and weight loss. Because of the wide variety of conditions that are covered under the digestive trouble umbrella, symptoms vary from person to person, and can indicate either a minor medical issue or a life-threatening problem.

Digestive disorders indicate that there is a disharmony between the body organs responsible for digestion. This disharmony is commonly caused by lifestyle factors and improper diet, which can put a strain on the digestive system. When this happens over a period of many years, digestive disorder imbalances occur.  The World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture as an effective treatment for digestive imbalance as well as a wide range of medical conditions. 

Acupuncture corrects the imbalances and regulates digestion. Specific acupuncture points increase gastrointestinal muscle contraction and relaxation and reduce gastric acid secretion, making acupuncture helpful in treating general gastrointestinal symptoms. Acupuncture addresses the acute and immediate symptoms that are occurring in your digestive system. Acupuncture evaluates more of your history and other symptoms as well to get a greater understanding of your body’s condition, and will then choose other point sites located on your legs, arms, back, etc. to facilitate a deeper clearing and correction of the chronic symptoms you frequently experience. Food allergies, and sensitivities will improve.

Diet is a primary consideration, as are emotional issues. Stress, worry, sadness, fear, anger, and all derivatives of these basic emotions will contribute immediately to the digestive system and its ability to “stomach” your experiences and your perceptions. Relaxation before, during, and after meals helps to enable a healthy processing of food. Troubles during mealtime may switch you to a “fight or flight” mode, which shortcuts away from digestion. Meditation is a good practice to help you maintain a healthy frame of mind for longer periods of time.

Acupuncture will give immediate improvements, and a longer series of treatments will help to clear up really stubborn conditions with deeper and older causes.
