When Holiday Feasting turns into Post-Holiday Digestive Nightmare, acupuncture brings the gift of relief!
Show of hands — how many people are feeling the aftermath of overindulging from the holidays?
Studies show between 60-70 million people are affected by some form of digestive disorder. When you figure in the holidays, and the average person taking in quite a bit more of that glazed ham/rib roast/tofurkey/baked fill-in-the-blank than they can handle, that’s a lot of aching digestive systems.
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!
Let Acupuncture give you the year-round gift of a happy digestive system!
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
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.
Acupuncture corrects the imbalances and regulates digestion. Acupuncture addresses the acute and immediate symptoms that are occurring in your digestive system. Acupuncture evaluates more of your history and other symptoms as well to get a greater understanding of your body’s condition, and will then choose other point sites located on your legs, arms, back, etc. to facilitate a deeper clearing and correction of the chronic symptoms you frequently experience. Food allergies, and sensitivities will improve.
Acupuncture will give immediate improvements, and a longer series of treatments will help to clear up really stubborn conditions with deeper and older causes.
