Nausea and Vomiting

Acupuncture treatment for Nausea and Vomiting
Nausea and Vomiting

One of the main areas that acupuncture has been used to reduce nausea and vomiting is chemo-therapy induced nausea and vomiting. While this is not the only application, it has been accepted for many years that acupuncture is an effective treatment for chemo-therapy induced nausea and vomiting. There is a significant body of evidence to support this claim (Gao et al., 2016).

Our team also treats pregnant women in the first trimester who experience vomiting and nausea, as well as pregnant women suffering vomiting and nausea beyond the first trimester. Our team’s anecdotal evidence suggests particularly good results in second and third trimester relief of nausea and vomiting.

Syndrome (PCOS), and blood sugar regulation, may cause loose stools and diarrhoea leading to anaemia and many other vitamin deficiencies.

Prilosec and Nexium, that lower stomach acid, are linked to malabsorption of B12 and various other minerals. Heavy metals in the blood stream such as lead and mercury may block uptake of iron, magnesium, potassium, calcium, and zinc. When malabsorption is suspected one initial test that may be performed is the anti-gliadin antibody test.

If it comes back negative this still does not exclude malabsorption, especially if the symptoms persist.
