Digestive system disorders

Digestive system disorders are very broad and very treatable with acupuncture. Here are some, but not all, of the symptoms known to respond well to acupuncture. Bloating, pain, diarrhea, constipation, Irritable Bowel syndrome, spasms and flutters, general digestive system weakness.

Achalasia occurs when nerves in the esophagus become damaged. Achalasia is a neurogenic esophageal motility disorder characterized by impaired esophageal peristalsis and a lack of lower esophageal sphincter relaxation during swallowing. It is a rare disorder that makes it difficult for food and liquid to pass from the swallowing tube connecting your mouth and stomach (esophagus) into your stomach.

If you have Achalasia, you may like to consider Neuropuncture. Electroacupuncture can be used to neuroregulate the CNS/autonomic nervous system to reestablish control of the esophagus. This is achieved by stimulating the vagus and spinal segmental nerves that innovate the oesophagus.
