Almost all medical conditions have some correlation with inflammation and poor circulation. In modern medicine, acupuncture has been used to treat many heath issues, including colitis, Crohn’s disease, weight loss, Raynaud’s disease, MS, back pain, neck pain and Parkinson’s disease.

According to a review study published in J Inflamm Res.  2021 by Li, Ningcen, acupuncture can balance T lymph cells and stimulate different anti-inflammatory mechanisms. In this research paper, Dr. Li covers the past five years of research on how acupuncture can regulate inflammation. One of the mechanisms involves balancing macrophages and lymphocytes, which is very Important for the balance between anti-inflammatory and pro-inflammatory response in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), colitis, Crohn’s disease and other autoimmune diseases When researchers stimulated ST36 and LI11, there were substantial reductions in both gut leakage and systematic sepsis in the GI tract. Acupuncture can also help treat hepatitis, acute/chronic pancreatitis, chronic atrophic gastritis, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) caused by chronic inflammation in the digestive system. Electro- acupuncture on ST36 can also reduce the number of mast cells and the release of Inflammatory chemicals from mast cells as well as reduce intestinal hyperactivity in patients with colitis and/or IBS. Notably, the combination of acupuncture points ST36 and ST37 is more effective than stimulating the CV12 and ST25 in enhancing the regular movement of GI tract and reducing the inflammation.

When the inflammation is reducing in the gut, you can absorb food more efficiently. You do not have to eat a lot to make you satisfied and you will lose weight with less food intake. Dr. Steven Gundry recommend people that if you want to lose weight, you need to fix your gut bacteria first. We noticed that people who are overweight, do not necessarily eat too much food. They just do not absorb food well and their body do not burn celeries instead they store the energy as fat. Furthermore, the inflammation in their gut can compromise their thyroid function because thyroid needs minerals and vitamins to produce sufficient thyroid hormones such as T3 and T4. If the thyroid cannot function well, you do not burn calories and produce energy. People tend to develop Raynaud’s, depression, back pain, neck pain and gain more weight. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs help regulate the gut movement and reduce the inflammation in the gut lining, so you can lose weight with normal intake of food. That is why every single herbal formula has a few herbs to help improve your digestion by fixing the leaky gut and clearing up the inflammation in the gut. It is much better way to lose weight with the healthy digestive system and you can still enjoy the food with good energy.
