Digestive Issues and Acupuncture

– Posted in: Acupuncture
digestion issues

Acupuncture and Chinese herbals can help digestive issues. Sometimes even a person’s ‘normal’ diet may be come upsetting to them if their over all energy and health is being stressed.  The Fall season is a time for many when colds and flu are a problem and can put an overload of stress on the overall body.

But additionally, we are approaching the upcoming holiday season, a time when a lot of people end up consuming more rich, or unusual foods that are not a part of their regular diet. New foods, rich foods, along with the normal stresses of the holiday season can cause digestive issues even for someone who is not normally affected with digestive problems.

But regardless of flu/cold season or the holidays – it has been estimated that approximately 95 million Americans experience problematic or chronic digestive problems on an ongoing basis.

Most digestive disorders respond very well to Acupuncture and treatment with Chinese herbs

Digestive problems can range from minor annoyances, such as gas and bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, unremitting diarrhea, chronic constipation and various cancers that target digestive organs.  Our standard American diet and the the high level of day to day stress that the average American experiences all play a role.

As part of the healing process, making dietary changes that restore and detoxify the gut also enhances treatment. Digestion is one of the main reference points for gauging one’s overall health. If there are weaknesses or imbalances in the digestive system, it is likely that one’s overall health is compromised. Maintaining healthy digestion is an essential component in our quest for optimal health.
