Digestive disorders

 

  • Chronic heartburn

  • Acid reflux

  • Constipation

  • Gas/bloating

  • Diarrhea

  • Nausea

  • Irritable bowel syndrome

  • Food allergies

 

Sometimes the issue can be the stomach consistently producing too much acid. Also the digestive tract can become chronically hyper or lazy and pain from unidentifiable sources can be difficult to alleviate. 

 

Certain acupuncture points have been shown to alter acid secretion, stimulate GI muscle contraction, cause GI muscle relaxation and inhibit gastric acid secretion via the somatosympathetic pathway making acupuncture beneficial in treating digestive disorders. 

 

Often diet and lifestyle modifications will also be suggested in conjunction with acupuncture. The result is most people experience long term, medication-free relief of their symptoms.
