What Is Gastritis?
Gastritis is inflammation of the stomach. It affects more than 200,000 people a year in America. The most common symptoms include stomach pain, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, bloating and loss of appetite.
What Causes It?
The most common causes of gastritis include infection with H pylori and overuse of NSAIDs like asprin and ibuprofen. Less common causes include alcohol, smoking, severe illness, autoimmune problems, radiation therapy and Crohn’s disease.
The Raleigh Acupuncture gastritis treatment naturally heals the stomach. When you come in with gastritis, which is essentially inflammation of the stomach, our treatment resolves the inflammation at the root level, providing safe, long lasting relief.
How It Works
Our goal is to get your stomach functioning normally again. You didn’t always have stomach inflammation. You used to be able to eat a wide variety of foods without trouble. In all likelihood an infection triggered this imbalance. Acupuncture restores balance to your stomach.
Inflammation is the culprit to more and more illness in our bodies. As the world around us gets more “out of control”, so too do our bodies. Fast pace, high stress, poor diet, rushed eating all impact our stomachs and make them much more vulnerable to disease (dis-ease).
Acupuncture has the amazing ability to “quiet” inflammation. We use a combination of local and distal points to strengthen the stomach, clear away excess heat, and improve digestive function. This combination heals the stomach, resolving the inflammation at the root level.
Compare this with Western medicines. They typically address the symptom. You take a pill, which quiets the inflammation for a short amount of time. Afterwards the inflammation and accompanying symptoms return. Then you take another pill.
Acupuncture has a more holistic approach. We address the root issue responsible for the inflammation. This root issue is “imbalance” at the organ level. In the case of gastritis, something has triggered chronic inflammation. It could have been infection with H pilori, overuse of medications, excess alcohol or high stress.
Acupuncture focuses on returning the stomach to a state of balance, the way it was before the infection or stressor. Specific acupuncture points actually strengthen your organs. We select stomach strengthening points for treating gastritis. In addition, we include points for resolving inflammation and improving digestion and metabolism. This combination of points serve to return the stomach to balance. A balanced stomach is a healthy stomach. And it’s pain-free.
There are many other triggers for stomach pain. Some people have a constitutional weakness in their stomach function. They may have inherited this from their parents. In other cases, poor diet over a long period of time can damage the stomach.
What To Expect
When patients come for acupuncture, our first job is to identify the root cause of their stomach problem. We look at the patient’s symptoms, history, diet and lifestyle to determine the problem and what has to be corrected. The treatment focuses on strengthening the stomach, correcting the imbalances and resolving the pain.
Once your stomach has been strengthened, the pain will naturally resolve. In addition, you will be able to eat many more foods without adverse reactions. Your food allergies will lessen, your energy will increase, and your immune system will improve. And it all comes down to improving your stomach function.
Is It Safe?
Acupuncture is safe, has no side effects, and puts no toxic medicine in your body. The needles are sterile, solid, hair thin and used only once. The points activate your own body’s healing mechanism. And once healed, the stomach will stay strong on it’s own. Your body is simply returned to the healthy state that it once had.

What our Clients are Saying
Thanks Mark for helping me to get rid of my gastritis! With you help and dedication I’m feeling so much better. Recommended!
My husband Arthur and I have used Raleigh Acupuncture bi-weekly for at least 4 years, for a variety of treatments, including general well-being. Both of us felt our ailments healed with the treatment. I initially visited for Irritable Bowel Syndrome – and had immediate relief… the practitioners are very professional and learned, and we have every confidence in them. Even though we pay out of pocket, we obviously feel that the acupuncture is worth it. We both highly recommend Raleigh Acupuncture – you won’t regret it!
I have always had a nervous stomach. Some people get headaches, I get stomach aches. It’s always worse with stress and eases up on the weekends when I can relax. I did not think of getting treatment until I stumbled on an article saying how acupuncture was excellent for treating stomach pain. I went to Raleigh Acupuncture and described my condition. They explained why my stomach hurt. It totally made sense to me. It’s all about internal balance. So they went to work on me to get my stomach balanced. And I’m pleased to say that it worked. I no longer have a nervous stomach and stomach pain, even in stressful situations. I’ve made some changes to my diet, based on their recommendations, and took chinese herbs for a while, but don’t need to take them now. I’m convinced that I would have lived with stomach pain for the rest of my life had it not been for acupuncture.
I’m totally afraid of needles, but my wife convinced me to try acupuncture for my IBS. It was really hampering my life. I’d have to go to the bathroom 5 times before leaving for work. Then at work I’d be sitting in a meeting and all of a sudden have to go again. Any type of stress set me off. At first they could only use 2 needles, that’s all I would let them do. But after a few treatments I started relaxing and felt more comfortable with the needles. The effect has been amazing. I’m so much better now. Mornings are easy, no problems at work. It’s hard to believe, because I’ve had this for my entire adult life. Now I just go in for maintenance and have some herbs I take when I need them. Raleigh Acupuncture is a great outfit.
