5 Ways Acupuncture Treats IBS
As an IBS specialist, I’m often asked how I help those suffering with it. It’s known that IBS has an emotional component even as it manifests as urgency to defecate, constipation or both alternating.
Acupuncture helps calm down the sympathetic nervous system;
it creates homeostasis in the gut;
it helps release endorphins which make the person less anxious,
It soothes the Enteric Nervous system as well which is very much the gut’s own “brain”.
It reduces inflammation in the gut that often contributes to IBS.
