Up to 60 to 70 million Americans experience gastrointestinal distress, with a substantial portion of that associated with pharmaceutical drug side-effects. Acupuncture therapy has been shown to regulate the gastrointestinal system by both up- and down-regulation of motility, inducing the production of gastric secretions, and stimulating neuronal activity. Acupuncture offers powerful treatment options for gastrointestinal distress with minimal side effects and has previously been utilised as an adjunct treatment for HIV retroviral therapy-induced diarrhoea. This case study illustrates the beneficial use of acupuncture for the treatment of lisinopril-associated diarrhoea.
