One of the challenging tasks performed by the body is digestion as it starts in the mouth and finishes when the ingested food leaves the body through the rectum. While many have a general knowledge about how digestion works, there is still a lot more we do not understand or are still learning. For example, did you know that it was medically confirmed that our gastrointestinal tract is our second brain? Also, it is important to know that the discovery is even changing the way the body and its functions are viewed due to things we put in our mouths that potentially have life-altering effects on the mind and the body.
That being said, while Traditional Chinese Medicine is a very old medical system that is a range of modalities to deal with imbalances in the body, acupuncture is just one of the modalities used to treat digestive disorders. With recent studies showing the effectiveness of acupuncture in digestion problems, many reputable therapists from Dr. Song Acupuncture And Massage are performing the treatment every day. In this blog, we share the reasons Acupuncture in Edmonton is used for digestion problems.
- Peristalsis in the intestinal tract can be stimulated by acupuncture treatments, and this is according to studies. This is especially helpful to these patients who deal with chronic constipation as they require only one to two treatments to find relief. Our acupuncturists at Dr. Song Acupuncture And Massage specialize in treating chronic constipation that may cause patients to feel pain.
- Nausea and vomiting are some of the common issues associated with digestion. Acupuncture treatments are regarded as the best solutions for calming the upset stomach that may also include pain. According to studies, an acupressure point that is on the underside of the forearm is mainly used for this function and as a result, nausea and vomiting are greatly decreased or stopped altogether.
- Another main issue associated with the digestive system is bloating, this is because it may be a result of eating too much food or improper digestion. However, acupuncturists use acupuncture treatments to assist the digestive process of breaking down foods in the absents of excess gas that frequently results in bloating.
- Usually, diarrhea is not an issue that just happens when one is suffering from the stomach flu. However, this issue is even more common than many people think. This is why professional acupuncturists use acupuncture treatments to help treat diarrhea by clearing both excess heat and dampness from the digestive tract and at the same time strengthening it.
