Acupuncture is an effective treatment for various gastrointestinal issues such as nausea, heartburn, bloating and constipation. Acupuncture treatments for these disorders work through stimulation and regulation of parasympathetic nervous system. This in turn helps the body digest correctly and absorb nutrients in the correct way. The brain can also be stimulated to help the immune system of the body minimize food allergy symptoms and promote detoxification. Combined with certain dietary guidelines, acupuncture can help relieve your gastrointestinal symptoms and treat the root cause of the disorder.
Acupuncture can also be effective in treating some of the more serious disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome and ulcerative colitis. Relief of symptoms and pain is achieved by bringing the body into a balanced state through improved energy flow and stimulation of organ function.
