heart burn, acupuncture can help

Do you know anything about stomach? Stomach is food storage in our body. All food we eat from mouth will go into stomach which is located inside of upper abdomen. The food will then be stored there for up to a few hours. Meanwhile, the stomach produces acid and some enzymes, mixes them with the food which is ground to smaller pieces by the movement of stomach. This mixture will be sent to the duodenum and small intestine for absorption providing energy for our body.

Your stomach need to be well looked after; otherwise it would get sick. Not eating properly will upset your stomach. Stress, anxiety and depression may upset your stomach too. Many drugs you take orally could upset your stomach such as painkillers. There is no doubt that drinking too much alcohol and smoking can upset your stomach. The common benign disorders of stomach are stomach ulcers and gastritis which are caused by Helicobacter pylori infection. Stomach cancer is also caused by Helicobacter pylori infection. The lining of the stomach is damaged or inflamed. Stomach-ache is a common symptom of stomach diseases. The feature of the pain could be cramping, burning or dull; it may extend to the back. The pain is chronic and recurring. Other symptoms may be associated with it such as poor appetite, bloating, nausea and vomiting.

If stomach acid goes back up to oesophagus, this can cause gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD); the lining of oesophagus is eroded by the acid. Heartburn is a common symptom of GORD. Heartburn is a burning chest pain and discomfort occurring after eating. Sore taste in the mouth is often accompanied, which is caused by the acid going back up to the mouth. Difficulty of swallowing is also common.

Sick stomach will affect your food digestion; as a result, it would affect your overall health. How to look after your stomach? Life style change can help you. Eat healthily and regularly avoiding food which could upset your stomach. Stop drinking too much and stop smoking. Don’t take painkillers which can upset your stomach. Acupuncture can help to look after your stomach. Takahashi T summarised the mechanisms of acupuncture effect on stomach problems. Acupuncture could reduce stomach pain and alter acid secretion and stomach movement. Also acupuncture has anti nausea and anti vomiting effects which will beneficial for the patients with stomach problems.
