Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
Can you cure intestinal yeast using acupuncture?
A: Unfortunately, intestinal yeast conditions are deeply rooted and internal to the body. Acupuncture alone may help with the symptoms, but unless the root can be accessed to treat the underlying condition, the symptoms will reoccur. I would suggest food-based treatments; there are several alkaline-based diet programs in the medical realm that may be of use.
