The Stomach Pathway: It's More Than Just Digestion

Stomach Pathway-2

Let's talk about "The Stomach Pathway". From an acupuncture perspective, it's not just about digesting your latest meal. It's way more interesting than that. 

What You Already Know:

I'm sure you are familiar with the basics. When your stomach isn't happy, you might experience these classic symptoms… 

  • Stomach cramps 
  • Acid reflux
  • Nausea
  • Vomit
  • Ulcers

The Part You Might Not Know:

The Stomach Pathway is like a highway that runs through your body with 45 pit stops along the way. This pathway starts at your eyes, travels down your torso, and finishes up at your toes. Surprisingly, the actual stomach itself is only ONE stop along this journey. 

When the the natural flow of electricity is restricted, inflammation can spread throughout your body.

Up top…

  • Bell's Palsy
  • TMJ
  • Sinusitis

In the middle…

  • Weight Gain
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Diabetes

Down low…

  • Hip Pain
  • Knee Pain
  • Neuropathy

Emotional rollercoaster…

It's not just the physical stuff. Even your mood can be affected by an imbalance in The Stomach Pathway. Emotions such as depression, anxiety, and even PTSD can be linked to this pathway.
