Acupuncture treatments focus on bringing the body back into a state of balance. Although acupuncture has been practiced for thousands of years in the East, only recently has its effectiveness been evaluated and recognized in the Western world. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) and National Institutes of Health Consensus Panel have both identified acupuncture as an effective treatment for diarrhea. They have also approved the use of acupuncture for the treatment of symptoms that often accompany diarrhea—such as abdominal pain and muscle cramping.
Additionally, acupuncture is helpful in treating many of the emotional issues that may be closely tied to the physical imbalances that can lead to digestive problems. Acupuncture works to reduce stress, anxiety, and insomnia.
