GERD is a common diagnosis in those experiencing continuous regurgitation of stomach acid into their esophagus, and it is a condition often seen in an acupuncturist’s office. There are several possible underlying causes of GERD, and in acupuncture it is important to identify the unique reason for the disturbance. Rather than seeking to lower the amount of stomach acid (as medications aim to do), acupuncture treatment involves regulating the digestive function to correct the pattern of acid moving upward instead of downward where it belongs. Lifestyle and dietary modifications as well as herbal medicine may be included in the treatment of GERD by an Acupuncturist.

Acupuncturists are well trained to uncover and treat the many possible causes of abdominal pain. Because the treatment approach is holistic - meaning it takes into account dietary, lifestyle and possible disease factors - often times the underlying cause of the abdominal pain is corrected, which can result in lessened recurrence rates as well as greater overall health and wellness. If your symptoms are to do with gas and acidity, most likely the pain is coming from disharmony in the digestive system, which affects the functioning of everything in the body. Staying healthy requires a healthy gut - acupuncture, along with other recommendations you would receive if treated by an acupuncturists, is well suited to address these issues.
