There are reasons for why certain symptoms come about. Acupuncture can help distinguish what is the root cause and then go from there.
In a nutshell, YES. Acupuncture is a very good way of helping your body to regulate itself. Acupuncture for digestive issues has shown to be effective with everything from "nervous stomach," IBS, ulcerative colitis, e-pylori infection, gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, acid reflux, and regulating gastric juices. It is great for treating a diagnosis of gallstones or poor digestive function. Depending on the particular issue, along with acupuncture, the correct prescribed herbs can support these treatments.
I hope this helps.

I generally get excellent results for a spectrum of digestive complaints ranging from acid reflux to chronic diarrhea to chronic constipation. For the best results, make sure you're seeing an NCCAOM board certified acupuncturist.
