Hi Andrea,

I've tried acupuncture for my severe IBS. My symptoms are: bloating, constipation, diarrea, and gas. I've done acupuncture for approximately 3 months. While my husband thinks that it helped me, I think it didn't. He said that I was feeling better and had an improved positive attitude. While acupuncture is very relaxing, and the doctor can put needles into various areas to improve the flow of energy, I don't think it helped me improve my symptoms. What helped me much more than acupuncture was to add natural fiber and eat yogurt/take probiotics on a daily basis. But you could be different. Maybe you'll find an excellent acupuncturist who can help you with your symptoms. It is worth a try. (Maybe even your insurance covers it. I am on an HMO and it was covered for a number of visits).
