Acupuncture for Digestive Disorders
Over thirty percent of people living in the United
States today suffer from some sort of digestive problems such as
diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), or constipation. If a
person has one of these disorders currently, it is best to get it
treated before it develops into a severe problem like Crohn's
disease, acid reflux, or ulcerative colitis.
Statistics show that when most people visit their
physician, the problem usually ends up being a gastrointestinal
cause. The physician's office is not the best place to go though, as
physicians will inform patients that the best type of treatment for
digestive problems will be either oriental medicine or acupuncture.
Researchers have discovered that oriental
techniques and acupuncture have been used to treat digestive
disorders since the even before the first century. Medical books
have discussed ancient techniques such as the certain points
targeted by acupuncturists and the herbs to use in order to cure
problems like indigestion, abdominal pain, borborygmus, and diarrhea.
In the study of acupuncture, it is said that a
digestive problem will occur is there is an imbalance of a person's
life force in the stomach or spleen. As most know, the spleen is
responsible for transforming food into the proper nutrients for our
bodies, but it is also responsible for changing food into life
energy. In fact, acupuncturists will state that the spleen is the
core of a person's energy balance.
At a consultation visit to an acupuncturist, it
will be determined what exactly is wrong with a person and then a
specialized plan will be created in order to re-balance their system
and restore harmony in the digestive system. Besides acupuncture, it
may be required that a person makes certain changes to their diet
and lifestyle in order to best treat the problem.
