The Bad News
Crohn’s disease cannot be cured. Medications such as steroids and immunosuppressants are used to slow the progression of disease. Sometimes they help, sometimes they don’t. And they have many negative side effects.
The Good News
Acupuncture works to reduce the debilitating symptoms associated with Crohn’s. Our patients report less abdominal pain and bloating, more regular bowel movements and better energy. They have less frequent flares and are often able to reduce their medications. All this is achieved with NO NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS. Our treatment is natural and will not tax your body.
How is this possible? The Raleigh Acupuncture Crohn’s Disease treatment addresses the root issue causing your symptoms. Abdominal pain and bloating, weight loss and low energy are all symptoms triggered by specific internal imbalances in your body. By addressing the root issue, your symptoms can be alleviated.
When you come for your first treatment we conduct an intake exam. We ask all about your condition, your symptoms, what makes them better and worse, and what triggers them. Then we look at your tongue and feel your pulse. Both of these diagnostic techniques shed light on the state of your internal organs.
From this information we determine your Chinese medicine diagnosis. Armed with this diagnosis we develop an acupuncture treatment plan to correct the internal imbalances responsible for your pain, bloating, weight loss and fatigue. And as we treat you with acupuncture your symptoms begin to ease.
What To Expect
Acupuncture is completely safe. In fact, it’s one of the safest medicines on the planet. There are no drugs on the needles, so there are no negative side effects. We use your own healing power to correct the imbalances that you have. Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years for one simple reason – IT WORKS!
All the needles are sterile, single-use and hair thin. You will hardly feel them. Once they are placed you will feel very relaxed. Many of our patients fall asleep during their sessions. While you rest the healing power of acupuncture is working inside of you. After the treatment you will feel rejuvenated.
If you have Crohn’s, come in for acupuncture. Try 6 sessions and see for yourself. You will feel stronger, have more energy and less pain. You may be able to reduce your medications.

What our Clients are Saying
I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease two years ago. I had fairly severe low abdominal pain and swelling, weight loss and really low energy. My doctor wanted to put me on steroids but I wanted to avoid that for as long as possible. I read that acupuncture could treat Crohn’s so I booked an appointment at Raleigh Acupuncture. Sure enough, the treatments eased my pain, resolved the swelling, and increased my energy. It’s been almost two years and I have yet to need steroids. Initially I got acupuncture twice a week, but after the first two months I have been on monthly maintenance treatments, and that seems to be holding me. I highly recommend Raleigh Acupuncture for Crohn’s treatment. They have made a huge difference in my life.
