How Does Acupuncture Alleviate Digestive Disorders?

The staff at Eastside Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine will design a custom, medication-free treatment plan to diminish your digestive problems.

It’s important to recognize digestive disorders may be signs of overall health disharmony. Digestive problems are often symptoms of endocrine and nervous system hyperactivity caused by poor diet and lifestyle factors such as chronic stress. For this reason, your acupuncture treatment at EAIM may incorporate changes in lifestyle and diet modification to regulate digestion and correct health imbalances.

Acupuncture is used to treat general gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms by increasing GI muscle contraction and relaxation, reducing gastric acid secretion and nourishing related organs. A successful digestive disorder treatment at EAIM may include Chinese herbal medicine, stress reduction techniques and moxibustion (burning mugwort or other medicinal herbs on specific acupuncture points) to bring about digestive system health.

Acupuncture has long been relied on to remedy digestive disorders and related symptoms, including:

  • Anemia

  • Constipation

  • Diarrhea

  • Difficulty concentrating

  • Dry skin

  • Fatigue

  • Gas

  • Hair loss

  • Low energy

  • Muscle cramps

  • Nasal congestion

  • Nausea

  • Stomach pain

  • Weight loss
