Raleigh Acupuncture Best Treatment For Acid Reflux
In this tutorial I’m going to talk to youabout acid reflux and how we treat it Chinese medicine and acupuncture. Acid reflux, also know as GERD, is abour a multibilliondollar pharmaceutical industry issue. So many people have acid reflux and they take so much medication for it. If that’s you and the medications
are working that’s great, you’re all set. The problemis a lot of people the medication doesn’t work or it startsworking and over time it stops effectiveness. That’s where wecome in. We want to be able to help you. Chinesemedicine treats GERD a little bit differentlythan the medications. We’re not going after relieving yoursymptoms. We’re going after healing the root issue of the problem.
And the root issue of the problem withacid reflux is the stomach. Alright, there’s too much acid in thestomach, the acid travels up through the esophagus sometimes into thethroat and sometimes even into the tongue. So we what we focus on Chinese medicineis treating the stomach, stopping thestomach from creating an overabundance of acid. We are able to do this. The issue herethere’s a stomach
disharmony causing.And you know the stomach gets lots of different disharmony. Some people come in and they’ve got excess gas and bloating. Some people comein and they just have chronic stomach pain. Some people come in because theyhave too much acid being formed in their stomach. They’re all different. These are different types of stomachdisharmonies and we treat them in different ways.
But the thing is, with Chinese medicine, whenyou treat a stomach disharmony properly you can resolve that disharmony.And when you resolve it and correct it, it no longer manifests the unpleasant symptoms. So in this casewhen you come in with reflux or GERD we’re going to help the stomach stop producing an excess acid and whenwe do the symptoms go away. And they stay awake too. The amazingthing about Chinese medicine is that once you bring the body backinto balance
it tends to stay there. Now that doesn’t mean you’ll never have it come up again. Some people do have to come in for occasional maintenance, which we actually recommend to stay in balance. but it’s not like if you get chronicheadache and you take asprin that’s just temporary for that day and you’ll have to take asprin again next time. No that’s not how it works. When we correct the disharmony in your stomach for acid reflux you will no longer haveacid reflux. and you may want to come in once a monthor once a quarter to keep your stomach
