Acupuncture and herbal medicine treatments for common vomiting patterns
A failure of the smooth flow of Stomach Qi results in Stomach Qi Stagnation or Stomach Qi rebelling upwards. This disrupted function often leads to nausea and vomiting. The common causes of rebellious Stomach Qi can be categorized as Excess or Deficiency patterns. Excess patterns include Cold or Heat invading the Stomach, Food Stagnation, or Liver Qi Stagnation. Deficiency patterns include Spleen Qi/Yang Deficiency or Stomach Yin Deficiency. Acupuncture and herbal medicine treatments for these common vomiting patterns are presented in this TCVM article.
