Digestive issues, including constipation, diarrhea, acid reflux and abdominal pain, are addressed very effectively by Chinese Medicine. Often Western medical doctors are unable to provide much relief for digestive complaints. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common umbrella label given to people with unexplained complaints, but there isn’t much to do about it in Western medicine. Sometimes medications are beneficial, but often people would rather not take daily medications for these symptoms.
Acupuncture works to strengthen the digestive system, supporting the assimilation of nutrients from our foods and keeping the metabolism working efficiently. It does help with weight loss and supporting you in staying consistent with a healthy lifestyle of good foods and physical activity.
