Acupuncture For Acid Reflux, Nausea and Vomiting

In Chinese Acupuncture acid reflux, nausea, vomiting and even hiccups are direct results of an imbalanced weak stomach. These pathologies are mainly of the stomach, but other organs and their associated meridians can also affect and cause these pathologies, but the stomach is the main focus.

The term most acupuncturists use to describe these issues is rebellious stomach qi/energy, a healthy strong stomach allows for its qi to descend downward. When there is a deficiency or excess affecting the stomach then the energy goes up and rebels against its natural pathway.

What causes acid reflux, nausea and vomiting? There are many patterns that can be uncovered by an acupuncturist while doing the diagnosis and all of which can be traced back to things like poor eating habits, emotional issues or from catching an external pathogen like a cold.

Along with a weak stomach, the liver and heart can also cause the stomach qi to be rebellious.  The natural course of the liver energy is upward, but if it goes off course it can invade into the stomachs flow and make the fluids in the stomach rise as well. Anger is one of the major factors when it comes to the liver and its energies, being prone to anger will definitely cause liver qi to invade the stomach causing fluids to rise.

As for the heart, stress in general or an excessive amount of any emotion can weaken its energetic pathway, which also descends like the stomachs. The heart lies above the stomach and they share a common energetic pathway.  Due to this when the hearts qi becomes weak the stomachs qi becomes weak as well allowing for stomach acids and fluids to rise more easily.

Depending on the final diagnosis, an acupuncturist can use needles to stimulate specific acupuncture points along with different types of heat therapy. The manipulation of the points with needles and heat can greatly increase the strength of the stomach, its energetic pathway and other corresponding organs and their pathways by removing blockages.

An acupuncturist can also recommend and guide ones diet to help reduce and improve the symptoms of acid reflux, nausea and vomiting . Depending on how long or severe the issue has been around the acupuncturist can recommend how many treatments it will take to help or fully recover from these issues.
