We can help you manage a spectrum of digestive issues including, but not limited to IBS, bloating and gas, acid reflux, heart burn, nausea, constipation, and diarrhea. Specific acupuncture points are known to modulate gastrointestinal muscle contraction and relaxation, as well as to influence gastric acid secretion.
With a combination of acupuncture, herbs, and dietary changes, we will provide a targeted treatment plan to correct underlying problems in the digestive system, encourage healing, and maintain a healthy gut. Acupuncture is an effective means to improve digestion by reducing inflammation and improving gastric motility.
We believe that digestion is the crux of overall health, and poor digestion is more often than not the root cause of many other health problems. Digestive disorders can also lead to or cause other health problems.
Both the National Institute of Health and the World Health Organization have recognized the effectiveness of acupuncture in treating symptoms associated with IBS including abdominal pain and cramping, constipation and diarrhea.
Healthy Weight Loss
The typical American experiences a high stress level, along with too little exercise, and sugar-saturated, processed foods full of the wrong kinds of fats. This results in an impaired digestive system, insulin resistance and a very sluggish metabolism. Acupuncture can help by strengthening the digestive system and curbing the appetite.
We can also provide you with dietary strategies that don’t involve counting calories that have proven to be extremely effective. One plan we use, developed by Colonel Richard Niemtzow, M.D. and acupuncturist of the US Air Force, has been tested on thousands of people and shown to cause rapid weight loss and improvement in typical blood markers associated with health. As a side note, Dr. Niemtzow has developed numerous effective acupuncture protocols for pain relief and other health issues.
