Digestive Disorders treatments with acupuncture

Treating Allergies and Skin Conditions with Acupuncture

The most common Digestive Disorders include bloating, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, acid reflux, abdominal pain, flatulence, heartburn, peptic ulcers, diarrhoea, constipation, nausea and vomiting and all these symptoms can be treated successfully with acupuncture and chinese medicine.

 Symptoms may be triggered by
   stress
   diet
   emotional factors
   hormone levels and
   medications.

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can offer a safe, effective natural and drug-free way to address these problems.  This holistic healthcare system looks at the body differently than Western medicine.  According to Chinese medicine, the body is like a garden that must be cultivated and maintained in order to grow strong and remain healthy.  Good health happens when all of the organs and meridian system are balanced and working together .

In traditional Chinese medical theory, the Spleen and the Stomach are the organs responsible for digestion.  They are Yin/Yang partners and their main function is to transform and transport food essence in the body, including secretion of waste material.  Other organs also contribute to gastro-intestinal problems which are the Liver and the Large Intestine.

One of the main functions of the Spleen is the digestion and assimilation of foods and liquids and to aid in the production of energy and nourishment for the entire body.

Another function of the spleen is to produce blood from the food it breaks down and to convert it into usable energy to power your body.  If your Spleen isn´t properly care for, the body´s energy levels will not be supported and illness may occur.

The Spleen is easily affected and weakened by poor eating habits and diet, antibiotics, excessive worry, or a weak constitution.  When a weakened spleen cannot metabolise or process food efficiently “dampens” appears in the body.  Dampness occurs when rotting, undigested food sits in the gut, causing a variety of symptoms.  If dampness “rises” to your head, you may experience headaches, a foggy feeling and an inability to concentrate.  Over time, dampness can lead to bloating, fullness and loose stools.

Another possible scenario is an imbalance in the liver.  According to Chinese medicine, the liver is associated with emotional health.  Stress and anger directly influence the function of your liver.  Alcohol, drugs and medications or a poor diet further compromise its function.  When this happens, your liver energy overflows in a figurative sense and attacks the spleen and if your spleen is weak it can be easily overcome.  The result can be stress induced IBS.

If your liver is compromised, you may experience alternation diarrhoea and constipation as well as bloating, gas, headaches and dull pain.  In this case, your liver may be the root of the problem and your spleen the secondary problem.

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can create a clear picture of the root imbalance that lead to IBS symptoms.  During treatment consultation I will determine what organ and meridian systems are contributing to your digestive problem.  I may suggest adjunct therapies such as herbs, dietary changes, breathing techniques and exercises in order to maximise your healing.

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can provide a safe, natural drug free and effective way to address digestive disorders.
