Do you want to be friends with your belly again?
It’s been said that it’s the way to a man’s heart, and sometimes our eyes are larger than it is (which can definitely cause some digestive issues). Obviously our stomachs and digestive systems are a very central part to our well-being. We pat them when we’re satisfied. But sometimes there can be trouble in tummy paradise — between 60-70 million people are affected by some form of digestive disorder. That’s about 20% of our population.
Digestive function is a complex process, involving multiple organ systems, enzymes and hormones. Our digestive system is also home to many of the body’s immune cells. If our digestive system is not functioning properly, it needs to use enzymes normally associated with our immune system, thus weakening our immunity, and without proper elimination of waste products, the build up of toxic by-products in our body increases, leading to a greater chance of illness.
Poor digestive function can be affiliated with fatigue, accelerated aging, allergies, weak immune system and cancers, to a name a few. Happy life = happy guts!
Acupuncture has been used for a very, very long time to help people gain digestive health, and heal while improving immunity!
Acupuncture is very helpful for many common digestive disorders including:
- Acid Reflux
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Bloating/excess gas
- Ulcerative Colitis
- Chron’s Disease
- Celiac Disease
In traditional Chinese medicine, disease is seen as an imbalance of qi, or vital energy, in the body. The placement of needles at different points in the body helps unblock and stimulate this flow of energy. Acupuncture works to help your body heal and resolve the problem. I base treatment on each individual’s needs, which could include either an excess or deficiency of qi.
Acupuncture heals the channels of the entire digestive system. Acupuncture helps ease symptoms and discomfort immediately, relieving indigestion, stomach ache and acid reflux, bloating and constipation. Acupuncture may also benefit patients who find their symptoms are brought on or worsened by stress, anxiety and emotional issues. Acupuncture works to relieve the body of these stressors by helping to calm the nerves thus inducing a state of relaxation. A relaxed body, and a happy, healthy belly!
