Acupuncture for IBS, chronic diarrhoea and constipation
What causes IBS and how does acupuncture help?
The cause of IBS is unclear, but it appears that sensory nerves in the bowel are hypersensitive in people with IBS. Under or over activity of the intestinal muscles causes:
- Abdominal pain or discomfort
- Cramping and excess wind
- Bouts of diarrhoea and/or constipation
- Acupuncture can have an affect to reduce the effects of stress hormones and therefore ease gut over-sensitivity. It can also reduce muscle contraction in the gut walls, leading to a reduction in bloating and pain
What happens at my first session?
At our first consultation, we talk though your specific issues, how long they’ve been going on and when they first started (often for many years on and off). We will take a detailed case history including other aspects of general health and well-being. We will make a note of any medication you are taking, and ask about your diet.
Once your acupuncturist has established your particular constitutional patterns, they will tell you how they think acupuncture might help you, and give you advice about diet based on Chinese dietary advice.
Chinese dietary advice does not suggest complex exclusion diets, but helps to identify a way of eating and drinking that suits your particular body type or constitution. This helps to achieve long lasting healthy weight loss.
