Acupuncture for Diarrhea

Diarrhea is defined by the World Health Organization as having three or more loose or liquid stools per day, or as having more stools than is normal for that person.

Acute diarrhea is most commonly due to viral gastroenteritis , bacterial infections , various toxins and drugs.

Chronic diarrhea can be common caused by ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, microscopic colitis, celiac disease, irritable bowel syndromeand bile acid malabsorption.

How does acupuncture work for Diarrhea

Acupuncture is ideal and very effective therapy for both of acute or chronic diarrhea which can be the part of the above presentations of a number of chronic medical conditions affecting the intestine.

Some researchers believe the acupuncture needles stimulate electromagnetic signals in the body. They feel these signals either encourage the release of pain-killing chemicals to stop abdominal cramping, or nudge the body's natural healing systems into action.

Course of treatment

There are 10-15 acupuncture sessions in one course of treatment. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
