Gastrointestinal treatment in Geneva

Acupuncture is an excellent treatment for gastrointestinal diseases. It works by relaxing the stomach and intestines, which can help relieve pain and bloating. The treatment also promotes blood flow in the digestive system, which helps relieve inflammation and reduce pain. Acupuncture can be used to treat many gastrointestinal conditions, including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and chronic constipation.

How to relieve a gastrointestinal illness with acupuncture?

Digestive disorders are problems that affect the digestive system, which includes the gastrointestinal tract and associated organs. People with bowel disorders often have symptoms such as bloating, cramping, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea and abnormal colored stools.

Transit disorders are often associated with specific dietary factors, but can also be caused by anatomical, functional or inflammatory disorders. Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine method that is used to treat many health problems. It involves stimulating specific points on the body with fine needles to balance the energy in the body, also known as Qi.

The benefits of acupuncture to relieve gastrointestinal problems

Acupuncture sessions for digestive disorders can help relieve symptoms by improving bowel mobility and reducing inflammation in the intestinal lining. A gastrointestinal illness is an inflammation of the gastric and intestinal mucosa, and can be caused by bacterial, viral or parasitic infection.

Common symptoms include diarrhea, cramping and abdominal pain, and in severe cases, there may be blood in the stool. Antibiotics are often used to treat a stomach bug, but they can also disrupt the intestinal flora and the absorption of nutrients needed for recovery.

Acupuncture for gastrointestinal disease can help relieve symptoms without the use of antibiotics or laxatives. Acupuncture sessions can help reduce inflammation in the intestinal lining and improve intestinal motor skills to move food and waste out.

Stimulation of acupuncture points can also help regulate the nervous system and immune system to promote rapid healing. In addition to acupuncture, it is recommended to follow a gentle diet to relieve the symptoms of gastrointestinal illness.

Foods high in carbohydrates and sugars such as fructose and lactose should be avoided as they can make symptoms worse.
