ACUPUNCTURE & THE GASTRIC SPHINCTER

Now a study has shown that electrical non-needle stimulation of Neiguan P-6 can reduce the rate of LES relaxation by 40%. Fourteen healthy (no heartburn) volunteers were treated either at Neiguan P-6 or a sham point on the hip. A separate study ruled out endorphins or enkephalins as the mechanism of action of the point stimulation by giving the volunteers naloxone, which blocks the effect of these chemicals. (Am J Physiol Gastrointest Liver Physiol, 2005; 289: G197-G201).
