Treatment of IBS using acupuncture and moxibustion

Author(s): Amelia Johnson*

Many people with inflammatory bowel disease employ complementary therapies like acupuncture and moxibustion. Their effectiveness in treating ulcerative colitis and, albeit to a lesser extent, Crohn's disease, is only weakly supported by research. However, due to a lack of understanding, gastroenterologists and specialised nurses rarely employ them as extra supportive therapy. They should have their efficacy evaluated through adequately powered trials, according to the available evidence, which suggests that they have a position as supplementary supportive therapy for patients with inflammatory bowel disease. Today, when patients and professionals share care and duties, it is important to provide patients with this knowledge so they can make educated decisions.
