Acupuncture helps relieve abdominal pain and fullness
A great study published today in the prestigious Annals of Internal Medicine journal about acupuncture providing relief for PDS – or post-prandial distress syndrome – which is a type of functional dyspepsia that causes abdominal fullness and pain.
After 4 weeks of acupuncture, patients reported that their symptoms improved along with their quality of life.
The results were considered to be clinically relevant so able to have ‘real-life effects’ and the benefits were shown to last for at least 3 months after the treatment stopped.
It is thought that the effects of acupuncture were due to a regulation of brain-gut communication.
