Acupuncture for Intestinal Issues

Intestinal problems are common and generally considered very distressing. There is often no medical cause found for many intestinal complaints, but that doesn't mean nothing can be done about these symptoms. Read on to find out how acupuncture can help with your intestinal problems.

Acupuncture for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Functional intestinal complaints are intestinal problems that are very troublesome, but have no known cause. An example of a functional intestinal complaint is Irritable Bowel Syndrome, abbreviated as IBS. IBS, also known as 'spastic colon', is the most common intestinal condition in the Netherlands. Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a collective term for various intestinal problems ranging from bloating to bowel movement problems. The frustrating thing about IBS is that there is often no concrete cause for the symptoms. Scientific research shows that acupuncture can reduce, and even alleviate, IBS symptoms. Irritable Bowels manifest themselves in various ailments such as abdominal cramps, bloating, diarrhea or constipation. Often, IBS involves a combination of these distressing symptoms.

Treating Overly Sensitive Nerves with Acupuncture

In acupuncture, the focus is on relieving (energy) blockages, and with irritable bowels, there are often blockages in the nervous system of the intestines. This means that the intestines react strongly to stimuli such as improper food, stress, and emotion. In addition to treatment with acupuncture, a change in diet and eating patterns may be advised. Because targeted treatment is possible, the results of acupuncture for Irritable Bowel Syndrome are often noticeable quite quickly.
