Acupuncture Cure for Chronic Constipation and Hyperacidity

Acupuncture Cure for Chronic Constipation and Hyperacidity

Q.How does acupuncture affect the body ?

Recently, many studies have been done to understand the mechanism of acupuncture. Acupuncture has been shown to stimulate the immune system. It also has effects on circulation, blood pressure, rhythm and stroke volume of the heart, gastric acid secretions and production of red and white cells. It also stimulates the release of a variety of hormones that help the body respond to injury and stress.


Q: What is the myth about constipation ?
Constipation occurs when stools are difficult to pass during bowel movements. Most people think "normal" means stools are passed daily. Actually, it is considered normal to have bowel movements anywhere from three times per day to three times per week, as long as the stools can pass easily.

Q: What are some symptoms of constipation ?
The chief symptom of constipation is the difficulty to pass a stool accompanied by cramping and rectal pain caused by strain of trying to pass hard and dry stools. Bloating, nausea, and sometimes the passing of a small amount of bright red blood are also consequences of constipation. The bleeding is due to the tearing of anus or hemorrhoids due to the hard and dry stools pushing through the anus. This type of bleeding is small in quantity and should stop when constipation is controlled. Constipation can alternate with diarrhea, when mucus and fluid leak out around the stool lodged in the rectum caused by the constipation.

Q: What are the causes of constipation ?
Constipation is mostly due to lack of fiber and inadequate water intake from daily diet. Traveling, lack of exercise, immobility due to illness or aging, certain medications or medical conditions (such as irritable bowel syndrome), overuse of laxatives, pregnancy, hemorrhoids, or delaying bowel movement can all lead to constipation.

Q: How can acupuncture treat constipation ?
 According to TCM perspective, constipation may be caused by either an excessive or deficient condition. If the constipation accompanies abdominal distention and pain and irritability, it is mostly an excessive type and treatment is aimed to sedate the accumulation. If the constipation is accompanied by weakness (deficient type), treatment would aim to tonify the body’s energy field to induce energy circulation and therefore push out the stools.


Q: What is heartburn ?
Heartburn is a common form of gastric hyperacidity, causing burning sensation in the esophagus, or below the sternum in the heart region. It is one of the most common symptoms of indigestion.

Q: What is the cause of heartburn ?
 The etiology of heartburn may be explained as the result of regurgitation of partial food contents from the stomach back into the esophagus, carrying excessive acidity (hydrochloric acid) secreted by the stomach. Due to its acidity, this irritates the esophagus and produces discomfort or pain with a burning sensation.

Q: What is Traditional Chinese Medicine’s perspective on gastric hyperacidity ?
 According to TCM, gastric hyperacidity is usually the consequence of emotional stress disrupting the normal Qi (energy) pathways, leading gastric acid to be regurgitated from the stomach. Emotional stress can stimulate the vagus nerve (one of the cranial nerves controlling the stomach motion and secretion) which starts the secretion of various gastric juices and the contraction of stomach muscles causing heartburn.

Q: How can acupuncture treat heartburn ?
 Acupuncture is aimed at the underlying cause rather than just the symptom itself. It is believed that unless the root of the cause is targeted, symptoms would only be alleviated, but will not be cured. Treatment is primarily focused on the relaxation of emotional stress to restore harmonized communication between the brain and stomach muscles. Secondary treatment principle is directed toward strengthening the transporting functions of the Stomach meridian.

Acupuncture Therapy For Hypertension Diabetes and Kidney Diseases

Acupuncture Therapy For Hypertension, Diabeties and Kidney Diseases
  • High blood pressure
Q. What causes it ?

In many people with high blood pressure, a single specific cause is not known. This is called essential or primary high blood pressure. Research is continuing to find causes.

In some people, high blood pressure is the result of another medical problem or medication. When the cause is known, this is called secondary high blood pressure

Q. What is high blood pressure ?
A blood pressure of 140/90 or higher is considered high blood pressure. Both numbers are important. If one or both numbers are usually high, you have high blood pressure. If you are being treated for high blood pressure, you still have high blood pressure even if you have repeated readings in the normal range.

Q. What are the symptoms of high blood pressure?
Usually, there are no specific symptoms which indicate that someone has high blood pressure. But some population surveys have shown that a wide variety of common symptoms, such as sleep disturbance, emotional upsets, and dry mouth, are slightly commoner in people with higher pressures. The differences are small, however. Going red in the face, or feeling flushed, is not indicative of high blood pressure.

Q. What is Diabetes ?
Diabetes Mellitus is a syndrome characterized by hyperglycemia resulting from impaired insulin secretion and/or effectiveness, associated with risks for diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) or nonketotic hyperglycemic-hyperosmolar coma (NKHHC) and a group of late complications including retinopathy, nephropathy, atherosclerotic coronary and peripheral arterial disease, and peripheral and autonomic neuropathies. Hypertension, hyperinsulinemia and hyperlipidemia are often associated with diabetes. The normal fasting plasma glucose level range is between 60 to 109 mg/dl.

  • Type 1- Diabetes (formerly known as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus) accounts for 10% of all cases of diabetes mellitus and is clinically characterized by hyperglycemia and a propensity to DKA. Its control requires chronic insulin treatment. Although it may occur at any age, it most commonly develops in childhood or adolescence.
  • Type 2- Diabetes (formerly known as non-insulin–dependent diabetes mellitus) is characterized clinically by hyperglycemia (fasting plasma glucose level >126mg/dL) that is not associated with a propensity to DKA, but some patients intermittently or persistently require insulin to control or prevent symptomatic degrees of hyperglycemia which might lead to NKHHC. It is usually found in patients over the age of 30 but it also occurs in children and adolescents. It is commonly associated with obesity. Type 2 diabetes is a heterogeneous group of disorders in which hyperglycemia results from both an impaired insulin secretory response to glucose and decreased insulin effectiveness.
  • Symptoms of Type 1- Diabetes include irritability, frequent urination, abnormal thirst, nausea or vomiting, weakness, fatigue, weight loss despite a normal intake of food and unusual hunger.
  • Symptoms of Type 2- Diabetes include blurred vision, itching, unusual thirst, drowsiness, fatigue, skin infections, slow wound healing, tingling or numbness in the feets.
Acupuncture as a complex therapeutic system has been used to treat a variety of diseases and pathological conditions. Although the exact mechanism(s) of acupuncture remains unknown, some evidence suggests a mechanism initially involving signal transduction through connective tissue, with secondary involvement of other systems including the nervous system. Acupuncture has become increasingly popular in the Western countries as a therapy for pain and several chronic disorders difficult to manage with conventional treatments. Acupuncture and acupuncture-like somatic nerve stimulation have been used in different kidney diseases and several complications related to them. The effect of acupuncture techniques in some kidney diseases, hypertension or diabetes is reviewed on the basis of clinical reports as well as mechanisms that may possibly explain the beneficial effects mediated by acupressure/acupuncture. The potential effect of acupressure techniques in renal inflammation and whether these effects could be mediated through the newly identified cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway are discussed.

Results are encouraging but individual results sometime gives thought to summaries results very carefully.

Cervical Spondylosis an Occupational Hazard

The occupational strain resulting from intensity and duration of working hours is taking a toll on the health of youths. Cervical spondylosis is afflicting the working class in the age group of 18 to 40 years, especially those in the IT sector.

 Percentage of such patients is increasing due to stress, pressure at work place and unhealthy food habits. With the rise in number of professionals like those at the call centre who remain confined to the desk or in front of computer for hours together in one posture, the number of people suffering from cervical spondylosis is on the rise.

Neck pain can be caused by an injury, muscular problem or by a trapped nerve between vertebrae. Besides, inappropriate working or sleeping posture may also be responsible. It is a clinical syndrome resulting from degeneration of the intervertebral disc and consequent pressure on the cervical nerve roots or the cervical cord. An x-ray reveals the formation of osteophytes and loss of normal lordosis or forwards curve. This is essentially an extension of degenerative changes in the body as a whole.

It is a degenerative disorder of the neck bones due to abnormal wear of the bone cartilage. This might lead to gradual compression of one or more than one nerve roots. It results in changes in sensation in arm, pain in neck and arm and weakness of upper limb muscles.


Injury and muscular problem cause abnormal tear of joints, ligaments and the structures surrounding the joints.
  • Trapped nerve between vertebrae.
  • Long hour of reading or working on computer
  • Watching TV and driving for long hours
  • Bad posture
  • Poor skeletal setup in the neck predisposes abnormal tear of the neck joints.
  • Improper sleeping posture
  • Headache
  • Pain, stiffness in the neck, which may spread to other body parts, like shoulder and arm.
  • Irritable, restless and fatigued, disturbed sleep and impaired work ability
  • Numbness & weakness may appear in arms, hands, fingers and legs
  • Pain at the back of the neck region, causing headache, altered sensation while combing hair
  • Do not bend neck for long duration while working in front of computer 
  • Avoid large thick pillow while sleeping
  • Avoid sudden twisting of the neck
  • Do neck-muscle building exercises
  • Professionals who spend hours doing desk work or in front off the computers should take small breaks in between.

 Advice for patients:
  • Avoid violent massage with deep pressure
  • No manipulations by bone setters
  • Exercise daily
  • Drink milk and opt for calcium intake
  • Anti-inflammatory medication, muscle relaxants
  • Neck collar
  • Physiotherapy, neck traction and diathermy

Acupuncture Therapy is the only treatment which gives cure to all patients suffering from occupational computer use hazard.

 Subject -Treatment of chronic back pain

Hi Doctor,

This mail is regarding the improvement of my chronic back pain with acupuncture treatment.

I have been suffering from this lower back pain from last Dec 2009. I had got it treated with at a major Hospital.

They gave me pain killers but it was a temporary solution. In March 2010 when i was playing cricket i strained my back again while balling and then I knew it had to be cured fully before again i start again playing. I was suggested to go for acupuncture treatment.
I saw the ad on the internet when I came to know about Dr. BS Taneja.
After completing 20 sessions of ultrasonic massage and acupuncture the pain which was very acute 20 days from now have been decreased by 50%. I feel very relieved after getting this treatment. And I am very hopeful that I will be again playing cricket with all my strength and pain free.

Backache due to Sciatica

Mr.G.V.Singh 47 years old Male was suffering from Backache due to Sciatica came for Acupuncture Treatment .
Mr.G.V.Singh MRI report mention Limbo-sacral spine maintained with straightening of the normal spinal curve. With mild Scoliosis Degenerative changes seen at L4-L5 level posture central disc protrusion at L4-L5 level. Posterior bulge at L3 - L4 level resulting in compression over the cal sac. Concentric disc bulge at L5-S1 level. All these changes leads to backache to Right leg Sciatica pain. Treatment was started one month before MRI report and total sitting were 30 days to get CURE.

I have received his Email for well being after one month of Acupuncture Treatment 
at our Clinic Psycho-Acupuncture & Medicare Center, at Noida .

Dear Dr. Taneja,

Here is my story.
"After going through excruciating pain in my right leg due to Sciatica, for the first few days, and having taken allopathy medicines, I came across some articles regarding acupuncture and back pain on the internet. On researching it further, I found it to be interesting science for pain relieving and decided to give it a try. I was helped to a great extent by Geeta (my colleague) to make up my mind and she got me the address of Dr.Taneja's clinic. I experienced substantial improvement in my condition after 4-5 sittings itself. One needs to combine the acupuncture therapy with certain back extending exercises to get the maximum benefit. Dr.Taneja's advice is to continue exercise (which ever gives relief). My situation improved to about 95% fitness after about 30 sittings. I have stopped the therapy and started with my regular gym exercises. I am taking care at the moment not to disturb or put any pressure on my back to give it more time for complete healing. Additional free add on is Dr. Taneja's knowledge and his conversation ability. He can converse on multiple topics and at various levels. So most of the times during sittings we had lively discussions around spirituality, meaning of life, human behaviour etc. At times , he may get carried and exhibit a self righteous attitude. Overall it was an excellent experience in going through acupuncture therapy in Dr. Taneja's clinic. "
Thanks and regards.
