Digestive Issues

The human digestive system consists of the gastrointestinal tract plus the accessory organs of digestion (the tongue, salivary glands, pancreas, liver, and gallbladder). Digestion involves the breakdown of food into smaller and smaller components, until they can be absorbed and assimilated into the body.

Digestive function is paramount, because it is the primary source of nutrients which act as the building blocks for blood production. An acupuncturist will always start by restoring digestive function before addressing any other system in the body.

Commonly treated conditions include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Gas & Bloating
  • Stomach Pain
  • Acid Reflux
  • Nausea
  • Morning Sickness
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Crohn’s Disease

Herbs for Digestive Issues

Used for thousands of years by healing traditions around the world, herbs have been a staple of effective digestive issue treatment. They can be used to address both the symptoms and underlying cause.

And while it’s true that herbs are readily available to those who seek them, there’s no substitute for the experience and knowledge of a seasoned practitioner who can advise you on which herbs are best for you.

Acupuncture for Digestive Issues

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine practice that originated thousands of years ago. An acupuncturist inserts hair-thin needles in specific acupuncture points throughout the body to restore the body’s energy, stimulate healing and promote relaxation. By optimizing systems in your body, acupuncture will provide a balancing and restorative experience.
