Acupuncture & Constipation
This is not surprising since acupuncture works through the nervous system and energy channels in the body and has also been shown to cause the brain to release endorphines and encephalins (natural pain killers), boost the immune system and calm the nervous system. It has also been established that all psycho-physiological health problems (of which constipation is an associated symptom) are particularly suitable for acupuncture treatment (2)
One study conducted at the China Academy of Traditional Medicine in Beijing revealed that acupuncture was "very effective in the treatment of diseases of the digestive system" with most patients benefitting from the treatment. (3)
