Digestive health is the cornerstone of Chinese Medicine. The balance of Yin and Yang and the alchemical process of our food and drink is what delivers us our building blocks. Without digestive harmony we are placed into a state of being in excess or deficient health states.
Digestive complaints that are seen in the clinic can include the following:
- Acid Reflux
- Irregular bowel movements (constipation, diarrhoea, blood in stool)
- Water retention
- Appetite fluctuations
- Sugar imbalances
- Irritable Bowel
- Weight Management
'Acupuncture is fast and effective in resolving common digestive complaints'
Chinese medicine is a comprehensive approach to improving digestive health. It combines various methods such as herbal remedies, acupuncture, tuina, exercise and dietary adjustments to address digestive issues effectively.
Chinese herbal formulations effectively alleviate symptoms that can include bloating, indigestion, reflux, pain, heat and irregular bowel motions. Taken as a decoction or in patent capsule, your herbal script will address the symptoms you present with and assist in managing the current condition.
While acupuncture will stimulate the neuromuscular and nervous systems to promote healthy digestive patterns. Should it be necessary we will also incorporate Chinese dietary therapy. This focuses on balancing Yin and Yang energies by recommending appropriate warming or cooling foods based on individual needs.
By restoring balance and promoting overall well-being, Chinese medicine can significantly benefit digestive health and vastly make an impact on your daily life. If you have any concerns feel free to email or call and we can discuss how you can benefit from this.
