My one experience with acupuncture was for a leg injury, and it did help. The acupuncturist also told me that the treatment doesn't heal the injury any faster, just makes it less painful. I assume that this would be true for any intestinal scarring due to Crohn's.
But as for Chinese medicine, I did a major post on this here:
I made that post in February of this year, and now eight months later I am still taking lingzhi and feel like my Crohn's has been completely cured. I take no other medications. Sadly, it doesn't seem that anybody else followed up on my suggestions to try lingzhi, so I don't plug the idea anymore. However, I am even more convinced than ever that this works.
As I type this, I am drinking a glass of Coca-Cola. Last year, a glass of Coke would send me to the toilet with severe diarrhea, and possibly to the emergency room.
Crohn's since 1988
