How Acupuncture is the Key to Good Digestion

As we kick off the holidays with Thanksgiving, your diet may deviate from its normal routine. The holidays are the time we get to enjoy our favorite comfort dishes that bring about a lot of nostalgia. From your grandmother’s iconic mac and cheese and your aunt’s sweet potato pie, your digestive tract might be working overtime. Traditional Chinese medicine, like acupuncture, can be the thing you need to prepare and repair your digestion. More and more studies about the effectiveness of acupuncture on digestion are being performed every day, read below for what we know now.


Acupuncture helps with digestion because it treats the person holistically, meaning all parts are considered. There is no compartmentalizing, so you will not only notice changes in your digestive issues, but they may also notice changes in their psyche too. Since the mind and body are closely connected, this can be very beneficial because it takes into account what may be going on physically and emotionally. 


Studies have shown acupuncture can stimulate the intestinal tract treating common problems like nausea, bloating, and constipation. Acupuncture and even acupressure are wonderful tools for calming the pain that is usually associated with these conditions. Acupuncture treatments help the digestive process of breaking down foods without the excess gas that frequently causes bloating. Lastly, acupuncture treatments can help resolve diarrhea by clearing either excess heat or excess inflammation from the digestive tract, while also strengthening it. 


If you are curious about how acupuncture can help you with your digestive issues or keep your tummy at bay this season, feel free to give us a call. We are happy to guide you along your healing journey. Book your next appointment here.
