In today’s times, Gastrointestinal Tract (GIT) disorders have become extremely common and they are not only painful but are extremely unpleasant and recurring at the same time. Frequently occurring GIT disorders include the ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease, gastritis, gastro-oesophageal reflux, etc. There is also the category of functional GIT disorders which include functional dyspepsia and the irritable bowel syndrome which is usually described through the presence of continual GIT symptoms. All of us suffer from acid reflux at some point in our lives and it is the condition when the stomach acid comes back into our throat or esophagus and this is indicated by the burning sensation mainly experienced in the throat region and it can even lead to a more serious condition called the gastro-esophageal reflux whose symptoms include chest pain, wheezing and coughing. Acupuncture has been extremely effective in treating this condition. Constipation is another very commonly occurring health condition which is characterized with the passage of dry, hard bowel movements which in turn makes the passing of the stool, a very painful experience. People who are often constipated have very infrequent bowel movements and they also experience stretching of the sphincters which can ultimately cause anal fissures. Acupuncture has been extremely successful in the treatment of constipation which divides the condition of constipation into two categories, deficient and excess type. The excess type usually results from Qi stagnation and heat and the deficiency type is believed to be caused due to cold. Acupuncture has been found to be extremely beneficial in the treatment of heat constipation but with cold constipation the recovery is found to be a little slow. Diarrhea results from the poor absorption of the nutrients in the food and it also results in unwanted water loss from the body which can further lead to dehydration. There are numerous reasons for getting affected with diarrhea which are food poisoning or it can also be due to food intolerance where the body finds it difficult to digest certain foods. Chronic weakness of the digestive tract is also a major reason for the occurrence of diarrhea. Acupuncture is found to be an apt treatment for diarrhea and when you consult with as, we will ask you about the timing and frequency of your diarrhea and will ask questions regarding your digestive system and your general well-being. Acupuncture can certainly reduce the occurrence and the intensity of diarrhea and can help in avoiding the loss of water and nutrients from your body. Traditional Chinese Medicine has certainly helped in treating a number of GIT disorders and acupuncture is used in combination with Chinese herbal formulas in order to strengthen the digestive system. Crohn’s disease is a very serious type of GIT disorder which is defined as inflammation in the small intestine. Electro-acupuncture is the most effective treatment for Crohn’s disease and patients have experienced remarkable improvement from this disorder. Acupuncture has remedies for most GIT disorders and it is the best treatment to try out as it has no side-effects.
