Take control of your digestive health this summer with acupuncture!
If you are one of the 60-70 million people affected by some form of digestive disorder, there is safe, effective treatment!
Acupuncture can be a wonderful resource for feeling better now and maintaining those improvements over the long term.
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.
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years 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. Treatment is based on each individual’s needs, which could include either an excess or deficiency of qi.
Acupuncture heals the channels of the entire digestive system. It eases 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 digestive system!
