Acupuncture for diarrhoea

Whatever the cause or nature of the diarrhoea, the result is poor absorption of nutrients and water loss. Diarrhoea can be acute as with food poisoning. It can also be an indication of a food intolerance causing difficulty digesting certain foods. Alternatively it could be a chronic weakness in the digestive system. It can just be a case of loose stools or it can be watery diarrhoea. It can also alternate with constipation.

In order to form an appropriate treatment for you, an acupuncturist will ask you about the frequency and timing of your diarrhoea as well as try to get a more general understanding of your digestive system and your diet. Acupuncture can be used to lessen the frequency and severity of bouts of diarrhoea in order to prevent further water and nutrient loss. Acupuncture in conjunction with herbal medicine is useful in strengthening your digestion overall.

Acupuncture and herbal medicine offer effective treatment for all sorts of diarrhoea.
