Is your gut making you unhappy?
From a new study found here: "New research concludes that acupuncture is effective in the treatment of dyspepsia. Dyspepsia is indigestion- also known as an upset stomach. It involves symptoms including abdominal pain, bloating, an uncomfortable sensation of heaviness or fullness after eating, nausea, belching and heartburn. Dyspepsia is often linked to GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), gastritis and gastrointestinal ulcers. In many cases, dyspepsia is not linked to an underlying organic disease. In biomedicine, dyspepsia is often treated with PPIs (proton pump inhibitors), which are a class of drugs known for the treatment of heartburn. However, long term use of PPIs is linked to gastric cell atrophy, which may lead to cancer."
