Acupuncture Cures Constipation

If you suffer from constipation, you understand how frustrating and painful the symptoms can be. Medilexicon's medical dictionary describes the condition as one in which "bowel movements are infrequent or incomplete."

What are the possible causes?

Medical News Today states that in the majority of cases, "the colon has absorbed too much of the water from the food that is in the colon. The slower the food moves through your digestive tract, the more water the colon will absorb from food."

What to do if you are suffering from the condition

It's important to carefully monitor your symptoms as you seek out effective treatments to help provide relief. Medical News Today reports: "in some serious cases there may be symptoms of bowel obstruction."

A holistic solution

Thankfully, a holistic approach to the condition often proves to be effective. Acupuncture is an ancient, non-surgical practice that works with the body's chi distribution to provide significant pain relief.

In fact, a recent study published in Healthcare Medicine Institute website stated: "New research concludes that acupuncture is an effective treatment therapy for resolving constipation. Researchers compared electro-acupuncture stimulation at key acupuncture points with a sham acupuncture control group. The single-blind, randomized study consisted of women between the ages of 30 and 54 years of age. After eight weeks of treatment, the electro-acupuncture group demonstrated significant improvement and the control group did not show improvement."
