Acupuncture Eases Intestinal Disorders – New Study

Acupuncture is effective for the treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), according to a new study. IBD involves the inflammation of the digestive tract and includes ulcerative colitis, Chron’s disease and other chronic intestinal diseases characterized by abdominal pain and diarrhea. The researchers discovered that electroacupuncture suppressed IBD by regulating peristalsis via its effective actions on the sympathetic nervous system.

Acupuncture benefits the intestines. In related research, acupuncture has been found effective for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The study was a meta-analysis of 11 investigations with a sample size totaling 950 patients. The researchers concluded that acupuncture combined with moxibustion is both safe, effective and is clinically more effective than pharmaceutical medications for the treatment of IBS.
