Since 1997, April has been assigned IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) Awareness Month. During this time, attention is given to valuable health messages about IBS treatment, diagnosis and quality of life issues.
If You Have IBS, You Are Not Alone
It is estimated that IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) affects 9% to 23% people worldwide. And many people are undiagnosed, unaware that they have a medically recognized disorder and have not had any successful treatments for IBS. The truth is, there is a natural remedy for IBS that has been around for thousands of years.
Treating IBS With Acupuncture
Would like to end your digestion problems? Are you less than totally satisfied with the results of prescription drugs to solve your health concerns?
Well, you are not alone. Gastro-intestinal complaints account for over 35 million physician office visits a year. Because of the side effects of prescription drugs and their sometimes failed results, many patients are turning to acupuncture for help. Clients at our Minneapolis clinic are confirming that acupuncture and Chinese medicine treatments offer relief from even the most stubborn digestive problems.
Chinese Medicine has Treated Digestive Disorders Since 3 A.D.
Historical evidence shows that Chinese medicine has been used for digestive disorders as far back as 3 AD, where specific herbal formulas and acupuncture points for abdominal pain and diarrhea with pain are discussed.
Conditions which respond well to Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine include:
• IBS, IBD
• Crohn’s disease
• ulcerative colitis
• atrophic gastritis
• peptic and gastric ulcers
• gastrointestinal tract bleeding
• intestinal cramps
Symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are abdominal pain or discomfort, bloating and changes in the bowels (diarrhea, constipation or both, alternating). In some cases the symptoms of these disorders can become severe and can impair quality of life significantly. In spite of the high numbers of people this affects, standard medical methods are limited and many have not received successful treatment for irritable bowel syndrome. Many people choose to pursue complementary or alternative therapies such as acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
Why Is Acupuncture So Popular?
With gastrointestinal disorders, patients are often dissatisfied with conventional options available. Acupuncture can relieve your pain and discomfort and effectively increase internal organ functioning. Many people choose acupuncture to cure their abdominal pain, nausea, constipation, diarrhea and bloating.
How Does Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Work Scientifically?
A number of modern studies, most of them conducted at China’s leading research and teaching institutes as well as hospital settings, show that acupuncture and herbal medicine can bring about positive internal changes in the human digestive system, including increasing immunoglobulins, T-lymphocytes and serum gastrin.
Stress can have negative effects on your gut, causing increased inflammation. Acupuncture can decrease your stress by modifying the nervous system response.

Why Our Clinic is So Successful
A Unique Style of Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine!
One reason why the Complete Oriental Medical Care has been so successful is due to the unique style of acupuncture practiced at this clinic. 20 plus years experience in health care.
Most acupuncture clinics in the United States use a method where needles are inserted directly into the area of pain. The problem with this approach is there is always a risk of aggravating the pain and the results are not consistent or reliable.
At Complete Oriental Medical Care we specialize in a different style of acupuncture. This method is over 2,500 years old and is derived from one of the oldest books in the world. This method has several names such as: “The Balance Method,” or “Distal Point Acupuncture.”
Regardless of the name, the effects are nothing less than miraculous.
Our clients often feel the pain relief when they are still on the table.
Many of our patients feel a reduction in pain by 65% to 85% when they get up from our treatment table.
Over a series of treatments you can achieve long lasting Relief!
