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.

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 disease development and even cancer. Colon cancer and bowel diseases are on the increase due to poor diets and lifestyle and not treating chronic digestive issues.
Laxatives can do more harm to the body for treating constipation and recently they were proven to cause bowel cancer. Acupuncture is a safe alternative and effective way to ensure your digestive issues are treated without the need for harsh drugs.

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 to nourish our bodies and not eating too much processed foods, sugars, caffeine, alcohol and fried foods. Through good diet and lifestyle most digestive complaints are usually minimal.
