Inflammatory bowel diseases are common causes of suffering in developed and developing countries. It is estimated that in 2010, those illnesses caused the death of 34000 people. Because of the seriousness of symptoms, complications of long-term drug treatment, many (23-49%) patients look for complementary and alternative methods of treatment, including modalities coming from Chinese Medicine, such as acupuncture and moxibustion. Meta-analysis of clinical trials published in 2013 shows that acupuncture is a safe method of treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases with efficacy higher than pharmacotherapy (oral sulfasalazine). Modern clinical trials concerning the effectiveness of acupuncture and moxibustion treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases will be discussed during the lecture, as well as molecular mechanisms of action of those treatments. The issue of safety of acupuncture treatments will be also discussed.
