Acupuncture Is A Natural Treatment For Colitis
Are side effects and ineffectiveness of conventional therapies getting you down? The good news is that there are natural treatments for colitis, and acupuncture has been named a very viable alternative to treatment.
How Acupuncture Can Treat Ulcerative Colitis
In a study published in the Clinical Journal of Chinese Medicine, acupuncture combined with herbal medicine had a significantly better outcome than sulfasalazine, an antibiotic used in the treatment of ulcerative colitis. Acupuncture is an effective treatment for colitis due to the synergistic effect it exerts on the body, thereby enhancing the success of herbal medicine approaches. Acupuncture helps to open the acupuncture channels, thereby potentiating the herbal formulas. The technique involves inserting fine needles into particular points along the body that correspond with meridians thought to be paths of life force energy, or qi. Sometimes the needles are warmed by “partition-herb moxibustion,” where herbs are burned on the end of the needle not inserted in the skin. The heat vaporizes the herb and the heat/vapor acts on the skin.
About 47 percent of ulcerative colitis patients report using complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in treating colitis symptoms. Of that group, about two thirds noted benefits from the treatments, while 10 percent reported a symptom relapse. Relatively few adverse reactions have been reported with acupuncture as a treatment for colitis. The main concern with choosing acupuncture is making sure the acupuncturist is a licensed practitioner, preferably one who is recommended by a doctor.
