Excerpt from Debra’s upcoming book: 33 Things Acupuncture Cures
It’s the middle of a great evening, delightful food, and wonderful friends. Then it starts. First, your waist seems to grow two sizes, and you feel well, gassy. Then there’s the tightness and sometimes burning in your chest. There are many names for your problem the commercials fill primetime with suppressive drugs with frightening side-effects. You’re having heartburn or acid reflux. Your friend whispers in your ear, acupuncture relieves heartburn and acid reflux. Wondering if your pain is that clear you smile between thin lips.
Do You Have Irritable Bowel Syndrome Or Acid Reflux?
It’s not just with rich food either! The other day you had that presentation and well you kept running to the bathroom for a full day before. It’s painful, and it’s urgent your irritable bowel syndrome, but you can’t just stop working and move to the beach where stress doesn’t exist! Besides, you love this job. Maybe you should call your friend and get more information about just how acupuncture relieves heartburn and acid reflux.
Are Heartburn and Acid Reflux The Same?
Yes, they usually are the same. Symptoms can vary though most patients have a burning sensation along with tightness in the chest. Burping and a bad taste in your mouth also happen. Because IBS or irritable bowel often co-exists with acid reflux, it’s hard to tell which symptoms are heartburn. Bloating, gas, constipation or diarrhea are generally part of IBS.
Like our individual whose friend suggests acupuncture relieves heartburn and acid reflux you may have a variety of physical problems listed or others. Acupuncture and herbal medicine can reduce the problem.
Some patients find acupuncture alone solves irritable bowel syndrome while others are more complicated needing herbal medicine as well. Because allergies play a significant role for many, we use a specialized testing when needed to find and then deactivate these food problems.
When Acid Reflux And IBS Are Not Allergies
A growing number of patients that I see have stress filled lives. It may be their profession or home life – perhaps a combination. We use some tools to help you permanently rid yourself of digestive problems Here is our list of helpful things you can do at home.

Essential oils used on the stomach and under the ribcage are useful. These include Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Fennel, and Lemongrass to name a few.

Common Reasons Men Seek Acupuncture
The biggest reason anyone tries acupuncture is for pain. Any pain including back pain, wrist pain, ankle pain, knee pain – you get the idea. If it hurts, it can stop you from running, cycling, even playing golf. Discomfort can keep you awake at night, make it hard to work, or interfere with intimacy.
Another problem is allergies. Acupuncture is a popular treatment for food and environmental allergies. This goes along with sinus problems, acid reflux, and other digestion issues.
Essentially Denver Acupuncture works with men and women for many health problems and like our testimonial video says we help men stay healthy so they can fish, hunt, and do other things.
I remember suspecting I had indigestion or more actuate silent reflux. For months, I visited several medical doctors all telling me that my runny nose, sore throat, and cough were either allergies or a chronic cold. Today I want to share another video testimonial with you from a patient who used acupuncture to reduce her stress and indigestion.
When I had silent reflux it was without pain. This clinical name is Laryngopharyngeal Reflux [LPR] and the classical symptoms include the following.
Excessive throat clearing
A “lump” in the throat that doesn’t go away with repeated swallowing
A sensation of postnasal drip or excess throat mucous
Many patients suffer acid reflux or GERD. They often try something over the counter like Prilosec or visit their physician for that little purple pill, Nexium.
These drugs have harmful side-effects, and are not for long-term use. They simply cover up the problem. Most people who prefer not to take medication acupuncture can be effective against these conditions of stomach upset.
Let’s see what this patient has to say about treating her stress and digestion problems with acupuncture.
I hope you enjoyed this video testimonial. Are you wondering if you have GERD or acid reflux? Below are the common symptoms of each.
The most common symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is regular heartburn, a painful, burning feeling in the middle of your chest, behind your breastbone, and in the middle of your abdomen. Not all adults with GERD have heartburn.
You may know someone with GERD, who doesn’t realize they have it. Bad breath is common. Perhaps you suffer occasional nausea, pain in your chest or the upper part of your abdomen. Maybe you have problems swallowing or painful swallowing, respiratory problems and the wearing away of your teeth from the high acidity in the month.
So now let’s look at acid reflux. It’s so common that many people don’t realize that left untreated it can lead to Barrett’s esophagus, a precursor to cancer. Taking medications only covers up the problem and is not the answer. Try acupuncture; work with me as a health coach. We work together you and me, to find the root problems causing your problems.
Fixing Acid Reflux
Acid reflux is different from GERD because it is the backward flow of stomach acid into the esophagus. It’s a tube that connects the throat and stomach. It’s common to taste regurgitated food or sour liquid at the back of your mouth or feel a burning sensation in your chest (heartburn). GERD is the more progressive state of acid reflux.
