COLON is the largest organ in the body and in acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, large intestine is used to balance Qi (energy) and blood. Points like LI4 (between the index finger and the thumb) and LI11 (in the crease of the bent elbow on the exterior) are often used to regulate Blood Pressure, Digestion or reduce Dizziness and Vertigo.

Large Intestine has a relationship with the Lungs and both of them are largest toxins eliminating organs in the body. 

If you suffer from constipation or diarrhea, your Acupuncturist may use acupuncture and/ or Chinese Herbs to help regulate your condition. Severe conditions like colitis and many autoimmune disorders may be helped by tapping into the energy and blood of the colon. Occasional colonics may help detoxifying the body as well as foods high in fiber that help move the stool. 

Green vegetables, beets, ginger, avocados, lemons, flax seeds (or any seeds or nuts) can help large intestine detox and move harmful toxins out of the body and help the liver detox the rest of impurities out of the body.
