From mild and infrequent to chronic and severe, we’ve all experienced digestive issues. In fact, they are shockingly prevalent in the United States, with surveys estimating nearly 70 million people are affected by some sort of digestive disorder.
The complex task of digestion begins in the mouth and finishes when the ingested food leaves the body through the rectum, impacting several organs along the way. Fortunately, Acupuncture is a very effective treatment for digestive problems from top to bottom!
Treat stomach pain, gastritis, colitis, constipation, and more.
Acupuncture is effective in a wide range of disorders including nausea and vomiting, functional disorders (irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, and diarrhea), peptic ulcer disease, Crohn’s disease, postoperative ileus, and even gallstone disease.
Many people today are on acid reflux medication long-term, which can lead to other health issues. We blend the use of Standard Process Supplements with the Acupuncture treatments. We also look at how your diet may be impacting the issue. The goal is not to keep reflux under control, but to address the problem, treat the digestive system, and strengthen body balance so you can indulge occasionally without paying dire consequences.
Acupuncture is amazingly effective for treating diarrhea and chronic constipation. This alternative medicine approach looks at the human body like a garden rather than a machine. Parts of the garden can get too dry or too damp, so we simply address this with Acupuncture to restore harmony!
How does Acupuncture treat digestive issues?
Acupuncture nourishes related organs, reduces inflammation of the stomach and pancreas, and improves digestive functions. Much like with pain relief, digestive problems are not treated after one session; weekly or bi-weekly sessions over several weeks are usually recommended.
