October 3rd, 2018 / Posted by chandra

Digestive issues are a common side effect of a busy modern life. It’s not unusual to experience problems with your digestion including stomach ulcers, heartburn, GERD, bloating, Leaky Gut, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and even food intolerances.


Why are we dealing with an epidemic of digestion issues?

Although our lives have progressed much faster than those of our ancestors, they have also become a source of stress and seen a decline in self-care. Stress is a major cause of stomach issues and a busy life combined with poor nutrition (and often overeating) puts a tremendous strain on our digestive system.

You may have tried all number of traditional medicines and clinical interventions, but if you feel like you are not getting the results you require, perhaps the time has come to consider acupuncture?

Chandra will first assess your entire digestive history and identify key acupuncture points that will help your body quickly feel better. Don’t be surprised if some of those acupuncture points aren’t located on the stomach area at all, that’s the nature of acupuncture experience, the whole body can be involved!

You might be wondering how acupuncture actually heals your digestion?

Acupuncture works in tune with you, specific areas of the body, when targeted will help to improve the digestive process by reducing stomach acid and inflammation, and speeding up the process of digestion.

The digestive system isn’t just your stomach and so acupuncture will also support and treat surrounding organs like your pancreas, gall-bladder and colon with a view to providing long-lasting relief from an irritated gut.

Results and research are showing that acupuncture is helping to heal the gut, it’s even been recognized by the World Health Organization! For optimum results combine your acupuncture treatments with a holistic lifestyle approach including a healthy diet, exercise and relaxation, and you’ll soon be on the way to a new and improved digestion!
