Digestive disorders

Acupuncture in the treatment of digestive issues

Acupuncture has been shown to assist with acute and chronic digestive issues effectively without the need for drugs or medication. Many people in modern society suffer some form of digestive complaint.

Our digestive system is like an internal mirror to how we process our external world on many different levels. Are we getting good nutrition, emotional and spiritual nourishment, and effectively eliminating our toxins from our bodies?

Are we able to let go of negative situations and be filled with positive ones. If there’s deep undigested emotions that have not been treated, digestive disorders may arise.

Digestive Complaints which may be relieved by Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal medicine

Through acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine and diet/lifestyle advice, we may be able to alleviate the symptoms of your digestive complaints.

Acupuncture has been found to be effective for treating chronic constipation (Zhou et al. “Electroacupuncture for Women with Chronic Severe Functional Constipation: Subgroup Analysis of a Randomized Controlled Trial”  2019 Jan 13;2019)

Acupuncture is an effective and safe treatment for Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) (Zhu et al. “Acupuncture for the treatment of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease: a systematic review and meta-analysis”  2017 Oct;35(5):316-323)

Acupuncture for digestive disorders – a safe alternative

When the digestive system is blocked, similar to a sewer system, the body builds up with toxins and this leads to digestive problems.

Each person has a different body and constitution; therefore through a thorough Chinese herbal medicine diagnosis we are able to provide a more individualistic assessment to assist your main complaint.

We should all be eating foods to nourish our bodies and not eating too much processed foods, sugars, caffeine, alcohol and fried foods. With good diet and lifestyle practices most digestive complaints are usually minimal.
