Acupuncture treatment of chronic gastritis


Chronic gastritis is a variety of chronic gastric mucositis caused by different causes.It is a common disease and its incidence is the highest among all kinds of stomach diseases.The higher the age, the higher the morbidity.Clinically, chronic superficial gastritis, chronic atrophic gastritis, chronic hypertrophic gastritis and chronic erosive gastritis are divided into two main types: Acupuncture and moxibustion.Symptoms of chronic gastritis include discontinuation of abdominal pain and discomfort, fullness and belching after meals, but many patients can have no symptoms.The etiology of this disease has not yet been elucidated, and there is no effective medicine in modern western medicine.

Modern reports on acupuncture and moxibustion for chronic gastritis were first seen in 1954.[1]。Since there has been no effective method, there has been little information.In 70s, the application of catgut implantation at acupoint was effective in treating this disease.[2]。A large number of chronic gastritis acupuncture treatment after 80s.Acupuncture is often used, and acupuncture, acupoint implantation and ear acupuncture are also used.What is particularly worth mentioning is that some people also diagnose chronic gastritis with auricular changes.The method is to detect the resistance of auricular acupoints with the low frequency skin resistance instrument and observe the morphological changes of the auricular acupoints in the patients with chronic gastritis. It is found that there are changes in the stomach area of the patients with chronic gastritis, such as neurites, congestion and pallor, and the number of the right ear cases is more than that of the left ears. Secondly, the reduction of the low resistance point and the resistance value of the auricular points only occurs in the 3 regions of the right ear stomach (antrum and pylorus).Place).This may be related to the right spleen and stomach in Chinese medicine.[3]。In conclusion, auricular points have certain diagnostic effects on chronic gastritis.At present, the effective rate of acupoint stimulation therapy is about 90%.The curative effect is simple and superficial gastritis.

Acupuncture and moxibustion treatment of chronic gastritis mechanism, domestic and foreign scholars have shown that acupuncture for normal, pathological and prior use of certain drugs to change the human body or animal gastric secretion function has a more obvious impact.[4]It includes [5] regulating secretion of gastric juice and secretion of digestive tract.So that the disease can be controlled and restored.
