Acupuncture helps the direction of the digestive energy to go in the correct direction, which is from the mouth downward through the entire system to the anus. If there is a problem in this directional movement which arise with gastric reflux, nausea, gastro paresis, or constipation, acupuncture can redirect the energy through the system in its natural downward direction.
Acupuncture also helps with the functions of absorption of nutrients and elimination of waste. Absorption issues may manifest as anemia, watery or loose bowel movements, and elimination of waste problems may result in constipation, bloating and gas, poor appetite and excessive weight (however excessive weight results from many different factors). Other health complications related to absorption and elimination are arthritis, chronic inflammation, kidney stones, gallstones, and autoimmune disorders.
