Acupuncture for Digestion

Over 90 million Americans struggle with some type of digestive discomfort. Chronic disorders such as Crohn’s and Celiac disease can become difficult to treat with medication. Acupuncture calms the digestive tract, relieving symptoms such as bloating, pain, gas, diarrhea, constipation, hiccups, bleeding, acid reflex, vomiting, and nausea.

ACUPUNCTURE & TCM CAN HELP

Acupuncture can also treat illnesses such as ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, and food poisoning. Research has shown that acupuncture can help to speed up slow digestion and slow down rapid digestion, which contributes to its ability to effect change across a variety of conditions.

Chinese herbs can also be used in place of many pharmaceuticals to prevent individuals from experiencing negative side effects. Herbs also have the potential to heal digestive conditions rather than simply relieving their symptoms. 

Traditional Chinese diet therapy is also an important component of balancing the digestive system. Using foods as therapy can create changes in the system quickly, and help maintain long-term the relief found from acupuncture. An acupuncturist can make recommendations as to which foods might be helpful for your condition versus foods which may irritate your system.
