Acupuncture for Celiac Disease

Celiac disease is a common condition which is caused by the body's immune reaction to gluten within the intestinal system. The primary treatment for celiac disease is a gluten-free diet.

Unfortunately, it is common for the correct diagnosis of celiac disease to be delayed for several years after the symptoms begin. Some patients may have trouble following a gluten-free diet. For these reasons, celiac disease can sometimes result in complications such as anemia, neuropathy, irritable bowel syndrome, malnutrition, and other consitions. In many cases of celiac disease, the condition is adequately controlled with a gluten-free diet.

When complications such as neuropathy arise, our treatments can typically help. Stress and depression tend to cause celiac disease symptoms to worsen. Our treatments can help to reduce the adverse health effects of stress and promote the healing of nerve tissue.

Acupuncture research at Harvard Medical School and many other institutions around the world have determined that acupuncture has profound effects on the body's physiology. These include a wide range of molecular and cellular effects on the immune system, nervous system, endocrine system, and growth-regulatory systems.

During treatment for celiac disease, it may be necessary to address other underlying reasons for a patient's symptoms. Dr. Windsor will create an integrated treatment strategy for your unique concerns and conditions. We welcome the opportunity to partner with you, and with your other medical providers, in order to help you experience the best outcome that is possible for your health.
