Abstract

Objective: To observe the therapeutic effects of needle warming moxibustion for chronic diarrhea. Methods: Two-hundred cases with chronic diarrhea were divided randomly into a treatment group and a control group. 100 cases in the treatment group were treated with needle warming moxibustion on specific acupoints. 100 cases in the control group were treated by oral administration of Smecta. Results: The therapeutic results showed cure in 52 cases, remarkable effect in 34 cases, improvement in 14 cases and the total effective rate in 100.0% in the treatment group, and cure in 5 cases, remarkable effect in 23 cases, improvement in 33 cases, failure in 39 cases and the total effective rate in 61.0% in the control group. The comparison of the total effective rate between the two groups was statistically significant (P<0.05). Conclusion: The needle warming moxibustion on specific acupoints is better than oral administration of Smecta in the therapeutic effects.
