If you experience a burning or painful clawing sensation in the abdominal area that is especially awful within a few hours of eating, you likely have a stomach ulcer. While drinking milk or popping antacids can help pacify the ache temporarily, what do you do when the effects wear off? In addition to treatment by a medical professional, you need to find something that will help with the pain in the long-term as the ulcer heals. An electronic acupuncture device like the Aculife is an excellent complementary remedy that can soothe your stomach ulcer pain.
Typical Causes of Stomach Ulcers
Contrary to popular belief, an ulcer is not caused by stress or an improper diet full of sodas and spicy foods. Rather, the primary cause is typically an infection by specific bacteria called h. pylori. This bacteria weakens the protective layer in the stomach, thus allowing the corrosive stomach acids to form a sore, or ulcer.
Another cause of stomach ulcers is the long-term use of NSAIDs or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like over the counter pain relievers. Of course, alcohol abuse, physical injury and cancer treatment like radiation can also contribute to the formation of ulcers. While it is important to get medical treatment, the medications involved may take a while to heal the ulcers as well as reduce the pain you experience during the healing process. It is for this reason why using a device like the Aculife can be so vital.
Electronic Acupuncture and Ulcers
A stomach ulcer means that one or more meridians in your body are likely blocked. When this happens, your life energy called qi cannot flow properly to allow for healing and pain relief. You can work to re-open these energy pathways by using the Aculife and directing its electromagnetic wave impulses into key acupoints in the hand and palm. With the hand map included with the device, you can accurately pinpoint the most vulnerable acupoints so that you experience optimal relief. Consider adding electronic acupuncture as a complementary treatment to soothe your stomach ulcer and promote healing.
