Acupuncture has proven to be successful in treating acid reflux.
Gastro-oesophageal reflux (GERD or GORD) is a common relapsing condition caused by weakness of cardiac valve/sphincter which as a result of its weakness cannot close properly. This causes exposure of the lower oesophagus to refluxed gastric fluids.
From chinese medicine point of view, cardiac sphincter is governed by the Liver energy. It is therefore the underlying weakness of the Liver energy which is causing cardiac sphincter to be unable to work properly causing symptom of the acid reflux. Often, people who suffer from acid reflux also struggle with other symptoms of the weak Liver energy such as hay fever, sensitive skin or bad eye sight to mention a few.
Acupuncture treatments can be successful in re-balancing and nourishing the Liver energy back to its full strength allowing acid reflux and other relating symptoms to either rapidly decrease or completely disappear.
