Acupuncture For Digestion.
Digestion is one of the most essential functions of the body. It is the route through which we gain energy for all organ functions and for your brain to think, it is how we absorb nutrients, heal and grow.
If digestion is compromised, the rest of the body is compromised. Sometimes people develop problems with digestion and this is often associated with abdominal pain and other discomforts. Acupuncture is a Chinese medical technique which has been proven to provide healing benefits for many ailments including digestive disorders.
How Does It Work?
Rather than using drugs and surgery to alter physiological functions, acupuncture achieves results by working with chi, or the body’s natural energy. Notice how your body seems to function without any conscious help from you. You don’t have to make your heart beat or your lungs breathe. These functions are automatic. Consider chi to be the energy behind this.
Acupuncture seeks to align or realign these energies so the body will heal itself and return to normal homeostasis. Homeostasis is when every function of the body is working in perfect harmony. It may take many sessions to correct digestive imbalances, but there is real proof it works.
How Acupuncture Can Help Digestion.
In 2002, The National Institute of Health published an article detailing studies performed using acupuncture to affect digestion. As far as the orthodox medical community is concerned, the evidence is conflicting and does not confirm acupuncture can help digestive disorders. The NIH also reported no particular harm could be done either. Therefore, the field of study is still open.
The studies published by the NIH confirm that acupuncture does directly affect digestion with variable results. It has been proven how this unique modality can induce and improve peristalsis, which is the movement of the intestines. Studies also showed how acupuncture directly affects gastric secretions such as stomach acid and bile flow. There is evidence to show how acupuncture, when performed by a highly skilled practitioner is proven to aid and alleviate digestive disorders of all kinds.
These studies were performed using modern Western medical tests such as neurotransmitter testing and PET scans which allow physicians to actually see what is going on inside the body during real time. Acupuncture clearly affected various neurotransmitter functions and the relationship to digestive responses was clear.
What To Expect From Acupuncture For Digestion.
First, you will need to seek out a skilled practitioner. It is preferable if this practitioner is extensively trained in Classical Chinese Medicine. When you do find a good doctor with the skills to perform acupuncture in the proper manner, don’t expect too much at first. It is a gradual process.
You may be given herbs to take between sessions in order to improve the results of the procedures. Often, it is required that you have several sessions to completely balance the body again.
Eventually the results become evident. Digestive health improves. When digestive health is balanced and all the organs are working properly, there is usually improvement with other physical and mental complaints.
During each session, the acupuncturist will place his or her special needles into specific acupoints in the body that have been identified as related to digestion.
Everything Is Connected.
Unlike Western medicine, which regards each organ as separate; Chinese medicine regards the body and its relationship to the environment in which it resides as an interconnected force. If one aspect is out of balance, eventually all other aspects become imbalanced as well.
Chinese medicine practitioners find the source of the imbalance and correct it using acupuncture with herbal remedies to realign the energies, restoring harmony in the body. It is often stated in holistic medicine that disease begins with digestion. With this in mind, it is rational to seek qualified acupuncture healing for digestion in order to heal the whole body.
