Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine is commonly used to assist with symptoms of acute and chronic digestive issues without the need for drugs or medication. Many people in modern society suffer some form of digestive complaint.

Acupuncture in the treatment of digestive issues

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 as a result.
 

Digestive Complaints with Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal medicine

 
With each patient, we will look in detail at your individual diet and lifestyle as well as any emotional triggers or stress factors to determine the best treatment outcomes for your acute or chronic digestive symptoms. We will provide advice on what foods to eliminate and cut out of your diet if necessary, suggest any further tests that may be needed and prescribe herbs and supplements to help ease your digestive symptoms.

With acupuncture, herbal medicine, supplements and changes to their diet and lifestyle patterns, patient’s generally notice significant improvements in their symptoms over time.
 

Our Digestive System

 
When the digestive system is blocked, similar to a sewer system, the body builds up with toxins and this leads to digestive problems. Around 70% of our immune system is in our gut, and this ‘microbiome‘ is important to our health and immunity.

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

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