Millions of people struggle with digestive regularity every year. Some digestive stresses are curable or symptomatic of other treatable conditions that go away with time and care. Others, however, aren't curable but treatable as long as you get the care your body needs.
IBS and Crohn's disease are usually triggered by stress and poor diets. While there's no known cure for these digestive discomforts, acupuncture is a powerful treatment. If you're looking forward to learning more about the causes of these digestive diseases and how to treat them, continue reading!
What Are IBS and Crohn's Disease?
IBS is a disturbing gastrointestinal disorder that causes acid reflux, irregular bowel movements, and gas. Crohn's disease is a painful disease that heavily affects your kidneys and digestive tract. Both are debilitating diseases that affect your health and outlook on life, harming your long-term health. IBS is a painful and disruptive disease that impacts millions of people across the globe. Although not curable, it is treatable with diet, exercise, and alternative medicines like acupuncture.
IBS is more common among people with weight problems and poor dietary choices. When the stomach and digestive tract have a lot of excess weight, it creates pressure. Pressure can cause discomfort, gas, and poorly regulated bowel movements. Crohn's disease is a harmful disease that disrupts how your body digests food and processes nutrients. As a result, Crohn's disease can lead to malabsorption and severe dehydration.
Crohn's disease is awful for your kidneys since it causes severe dehydration. Inflammation in the bowels is one of the leading causes of Crohn's disease, but the initial trigger is still unknown.
Can Acupuncture Help Treat the Symptoms of IBS and Crohn's Disease?
Acupuncture is a potent treatment for many symptoms and underlying causes of flair-ups. Keeping the body balanced and preventing stress is essential to keeping IBS symptoms in check. Although it's not a cure, acupuncture helps decrease stress levels and prevents inflammation.
Acupuncture can help address several of the underlying causes of IBS, including the following:
- Decreasing the body's stress hormone
- Lowering inflammation
- Assisting in weight loss
- Regulating the body's systems
One of IBS's most annoying and problematic symptoms is irregular bowel movements. These sudden urges can disrupt daily activities and cause discomfort. As the body's systems struggle to regulate themselves, they cause acid in the gut and possibly cause gas and diarrhea.
By decreasing the stress and anxiety in the body, acupuncture prevents these sudden bowel movements and gas. It's also been shown to help regulate the body's systems, thus preventing diarrhea and constipation. The causes of Crohn's and IBS differ from person to person. Fortunately, acupuncture is a holistic system that can help regulate and heal the causes of stress, flair-ups, and irritability.
Treating GI Disturbances With Acupuncture
Crohn's disease and IBS are both debilitating conditions when left untreated. While most of the symptoms aren't seriously harmful to your body, they can cause damage to your GI tract and organs if neglected.
Care and treatments are the best ways to address these symptoms and reclaim your life. Don't let your gut control your life when acupuncture can help you regain it! Contact our staff today at Fast Relief Acupuncture to get the care and treatment your body deserves.

My Name is John Kim
I have been a licensed acupuncturist since 2000. When I first started my acupuncture career, my primary goal as a practitioner was to help people anguishing from living with pain everyday of their lives. I have seen on numerous occasions what chronic pain can do to a person physically but also seen how it can debilitate a person’s psyche as well.
Throughout the years, I have studied, developed and incorporated a very unique treatment protocol that has successfully treated and effectively reduced pain levels on chronic pain patients. I have combined traditional methods of acupuncture along with modern, research proven techniques to help reduce chronic pain symptoms in a safe, non- chemically addictive, and effective process.
