Gastrointestinal issues including constipation, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), acid reflux, nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain and more are extremely prevalent. Gastrointestinal issues can be caused by many things that holistic alternative medicine can treat.
Acupuncture nourishes digestive organs by decreasing inflammation of the stomach and pancreas and improving digestive functions. It does this by focusing on acupuncture pressure points on the body that speed up circulation to digestive organs, increase gastrointestinal muscle contraction and relaxation, and reduce stomach acidity to normal levels. In addition, dietary recommendations and nutritional supplements including probiotics and certain Chinese herbs can be very helpful to improve many GI conditions.
