Acupuncture for Leak Gut Syndrome
Leaky gut syndrome includes bloating, gas, cramps, food sensitivities, and aches and pains.
A possible cause of leaky gut is increased intestinal permeability or intestinal hyperpermeability. That could happen when tight junctions in the gut, which control what passes through the lining of the small intestine, don’t work properly. That could let substances leak into the bloodstream. People with celiac disease and Crohn’s disease experience this. Other causes of leaky gut could be certain types of drugs, radiation therapy, or food allergies. Chronic stress may also be a factor.
How does acupuncture work for Leak Gut Syndrome?
Dr. Shan Kong has successfully treated a lot patients with Leaky gut syndrome referred by medical doctors. Acupuncture increase blood flow to digestive system to strengthen the lining of the small intestine. Acupuncture helps substances passes through the lining of the small intestine properly and prevents leaking by coordinating a series of related organs, meridians and nerves. In addition, acupuncture resolves leaky gut syndromes through treating the underlying condition, such as Crohn’s or celiac disease, side effects of radiation, or food allergies, as well as reducing stress and direction of diet.
