Digestive System Disorders

Acupuncture for gastrointestinal disorders: myth or magic

For thousands of years, Chinese medicine and conventional Western medicine appeared to be two unrelated and uncompromising paradigms. The history of acupuncture can be traced back for more than 2500 years but today we can use advanced technology to understand ancient healing methods. Acupuncture should not be used to compete with efficacious treatment modalities that are already available in conventional Western medicine. Exploration of its clinical applications should focus on conditions for which conventional medicine can find no satisfactory remedy.

Digestive system and metabolism, Evidence Based Acupuncture


Acupuncture is a method of treatment derived from ancient Chinese Medicine. This system of medicine describes in details metabolic changes in the body including the production of energy. According to Chinese Medicine the energy is produced from two sources : air inhaled during breathing and energy from food provided by proper digestion. For this reason ancient doctors and scholars were very much focused on researching those two processes, and managed to describe them in details. Many diseases of digestive system and metabolic disturbances are treated successfully with acupuncture.
