A healthy digestive system breaks food down into energy and nutrients for the body. If your digestive system isn’t functioning well, it has trouble breaking the food down, restricting the amount of energy and nutrient that can be obtained from the food you eat. If your digestive system isn’t working properly you will be inclined to eat more energy dense food which will lead to weight gain and may require nutritional supplements to assist with the reduced nutrient intake.
If your digestive system isn’t function properly, you may have a combination of several symptoms including: poor appetite or hunger and cravings, bloating, bowel irregularity, pain, nausea and fatigue.
Chinese medicine and acupuncture focus on tonifying the spleen and stomach and stimulating the flow of qi to the small and large intestine. By removing stagnation and balancing the body fluids, Chinese medicine improves the function of the spleen and stomach.
We will use your specific set of symptoms to make a treatment prescription tailored for you. Your treatment may include Acupuncture, Chinese herbs, cupping, massage, naturopathic herbals or nutritional supplements. Each treatment prescription is unique and will be discussed with you to get the mix right for your needs.
