Have stomach problems, acid reflux, stomach hernia. Done colon resection. Acupuncture useful?

I am trying to find info on plaquenil . I have bad stomach problems, acid reflux , no ibufrofin had colon resection surgery and have a stomach hernia. My stomach is easily upset to watch what I eat. I don ;t think this is a good med for me but my rheumatologist thinks it is the best . It takes 3-6 onths to work. How do I deal with the side effects and how long does it take for them to go away. Will acupuncture be an alternative solution?

Ayurveda Specialist 's  Response
Dear,
Welcome to Healthcaremagic
Every medicinal system has its specialty. Same as i think Ayurveda can address your problems well. You mentioned you had already colon resection. you had hernia of stomach probably hiatus hernia which cause high bile reflux. no proton pump inhibitors can resolve it. Ayurveda medicines give natural care for your problem and some yoga/Pranayama under supervision of Ayurveda Specialist.
Take care

Homeopath Dr. C. J. Varghese's  Response
Hello friend,
I am not a competent person to comment on the fruitfulness of acupuncture. But I can recommend Homoeopathy for you because yours are constitutional problems and can best be cured with Homoeopathy.
Your disease is very much related to your mind. Homoeopathy takes into consideration your mental symptoms as well as physical symptoms for curing you.
I hope you are searching for cure and not for tempoary relief and that is why I attempted to answe your question related to acupuncture.
Dr C. J. Varghese, Homoeopath
