In acupuncture for the digestive system asa whole, extensive research has shown how it can aid acid secretion, motility, neurohormonal changes and changes in sensory thresholds.

Acupuncture for Epigastric Pain
Acupuncture can be effective for pain in stomach diseases such as peptic ulcers, gastritis (acute and chronic) and gastric spasm. In fact, acupuncture for epigastric pain and gastrointestinal spasm has been shown to be more effective than conventional drug treatment.

Acupuncture for Nausea and Vomiting
For morning sickness, postoperative vomiting, and nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy cancer treatment, acupuncture can have an excellent antiemetic effect and there is much evidence from clinically controlled studies to support the use of acupuncture for nausea and vomiting.

Acupuncture for IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
IBS is a condition what conventional medicine finds rather difficult to treat. In this case, acupuncture can be very effective; for ulcerative colitis, it is similarly beneficial.

Acupuncture for Biliary Colic and Cholecystitis
Research has also shown that acupuncture can provide pain relief and antispasmodic effects on the biliary tract and is recommended for biliary colic and cholecystitis.

Acupuncture for Gallstones
Studies have shown that acupuncture can improve the secretion of bile, relieve colicky pain, and can also aid the expulsion of the gallstones themselves by way of encouraging the energy flow to flush the stones through the system.
Other digestive-related disorders that can be treated with acupuncture and TCM include:

  • Constipation
  • Diarrhoea
  • Gastric pain
  • Indigestion
