Acupuncture for stomach ulcers

It is estimated that up to 10% of the population suffers from stomach ulcers, and adults over 45 in particular are at high risk of developing the condition. A peptic ulcer is an open wound in the duodenum or stomach with discomfort or great pain as a result.

In the vast majority of cases, stomach ulcers are caused by a bacterial infection, popularly known as the ‘stomach ulcer bacteria’. Stomach ulcers occur when the protective layer of the mucous membrane breaks down and is exposed to stomach acid.

Symptoms of peptic ulcer

Stomach ulcers can have several different symptoms, so it is important to pay attention to your body, as many stomach disorders such as digestive problems and irritated colon  have the same initial symptoms. Many people do not even notice that they have a stomach ulcer, while others have symptoms such as:

  • Periodic biting or burning sensation in the upper abdomen
  • The abdomen becomes hard and feels tender to the touch
  • Decreased appetite
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Changes in the stool – can either turn black or have blood in the stool
  • Vomiting with traces of blood

Ulcers can be easily treated with antibiotics if they are caused by the ulcer bacterium Helicobacter. At the same time, you will be treated with stomach acid-inhibiting medication and should completely avoid stomach ulcer-causing medication and acetylsalicylic acid. Before an acupuncture treatment, it should be investigated whether the stomach ulcer is caused by Helicobacter, as the bacterial attack must be stopped, while pain and discomfort can be alleviated using acupuncture.
