The digestive system is a key player when it comes to keeping your body nourished and running.

Because of this, it is important to get right to the source when dealing with a disgruntled digestive system. Chinese medicine helps by narrowing gut problems down into three treatable categories; Proper Nutrition, Customized Herbs, and of course, Acupuncture!
1. Proper Nutrition
Oftentimes the food that someone is consuming on a regular basis can be doing more harm than good. All people's bodies react to foods differently, for example, some people swear by the fact that coffee elevates headaches, whereas others may experience frequent headaches as a result of coffee consumption. When it comes to digestive troubles it is often best to eat warm, cooked foods. Beverages should also be room temperature or warm. Having cold or raw foods like salads, sushi, or iced coffees can wreak havoc on the digestive system. Ask your acupuncturist which foods are best for you!
2. Chinese Herbs
Chinese herbs are always recommended on a personal basis and can help to re-balance your digestive system. Herbs are customized to your unique situation and take into account any medications you are on, or allergies you may have. Ask your acupuncturist about what herbs would be appropriate for your health condition the next time you visit!
Acupuncture focuses on the spleen and stomach meridians when helping to work through digestive issues. Acupuncture can help to rebalance and strengthen the function of these organ systems; it can also help to regulate the metabolism and decrease or eliminate gastrointestinal pain. Acupuncture will also regulate your bowels to correct diarrhea or constipation.
