Digestive & Gut Health

Scientists refer to the gut as “the second brain” because there is an extraordinary connection between what we put in our mouths and how our brains and bodies function.

Poor diet, chronic stress, and poor sleep habits can lead to all kinds of digestive disorders, which in turn leads to long-term health problems like heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes.

Common symptoms of poor gut health include:

● Acid Reflux
● Bloating & Gas
● Diarrhea
● Constipation
● Cholesterol
● Irregular Appetite
● Nausea & Morning Sickness
● Stomach Pain
Examples of digestive disorders are:
● Ulcerative Colitis
● Crohn’s
While some people find their symptoms disabling, many others go through life not knowing something is wrong at all. Then one day they come face to face with a serious health issue and wonder why they didn’t act sooner. The best way to keep a healthy gut is to practice proper maintenance. Acupuncture is an easy and cost-effective way to keep your gut clean and running smoothly for years to come.


How Does Acupuncture Help Digestive Health?

Acupuncture involves inserting needles along the meridian system to correct imbalances in the
body. It helps to restore your gut to a natural healthy state, so you feel your very best.
For those who suffer from chronic constipation, studies have shown that acupuncture can
stimulate peristalsis in the intestinal tract, which is essential for healthy bowel movements.

If you experience frequent nausea and vomiting, acupuncture is an effective way to calm an
upset stomach. Just a few sessions can greatly reduce or eliminate symptoms altogether.

Overeating and improper digestion can cause painful bloating and gas. Regular acupuncture
treatments can help your digestive system break down foods properly without the excess gas
that causes bloating.

It also helps to reduce pain and inflammation in the stomach, which helps regulate stomach
acid. Finally, acupuncture treatments can help frequent diarrhea by clearing either excess heat
or excess dampness from the digestive tract.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

The other side of TCM is Herbal Medicine. Practitioners often prescribe a personalized mixture
of Chinese herbs for digestive issues, to be taken either alone or in conjunction with
acupuncture treatments. Common herbs like ginger and licorice have been used for hundreds of
years around the world to improve digestion.
