Acupuncture is extremely powerful in the treatment of G.I. disorders
Acupuncture is extremely powerful in the treatment of G.I. disorders and its effect is wide and varied- from intestinal motility to stomach pain; from healthy gut bacteria regulation to bloating; from ulcers to gas, to name a few.
Acupuncture treats so many gastrointestinal disorders effectively by working on the somatic autonomic reflexes that control the organs and tissues of digestion and elimination, and by reducing gut inflammation. Somatosensory stimulation (the messages the needles induce to the diseased G.I. tissues) and muscular visceral reflexes in the spine (the nerves that control the G..I organs) are the way acupuncture makes an impact in such a safe and effective way.
