Acupuncture for Better Digestion
Our experienced team at The Point can help you manage a spectrum of digestive issues including, but not limited to IBS, acid reflux, heart burn, nausea, constipation, diarrhea, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, hemorrhoids, fissures, bloating and gas. Specific acupuncture points are known to increase gastrointestinal muscle contraction and relaxation, as well as to reduce gastric acid secretion.
With a combination of acupuncture, herbs, dietary changes, and specific supplements, we will provide a targeted treatment plan to correct underlying problems in the digestive system, encourage healing, and maintain a healthy gut. We have utilized acupuncture as an effective means to improve digestion by reducing inflammation and improving gastric motility.
We believe that digestion is the crux of overall health, and poor digestion is more often than not the root cause of many other health problems. Digestive disorders can also lead to or cause other health problems.
Both the National Institute of Health and the World Health Organization have recognized the effectiveness of acupuncture in treating symptoms associated with IBS including abdominal pain and cramping, constipation and diarrhea.
Acupuncture also supports healthy weight loss
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, obesity and weight gain are the result of imbalances in the digestive system. The American lifestyle of overwork, too much stress and too little exercise, sugar-saturated, processed foods full of the wrong kinds of fats contribute heavily to an impaired digestive system and a very sluggish metabolism. Acupuncture can help by strengthening the digestive system and curbing the appetite.
Combining regular acupuncture treatments with herbal solutions will help support the body through dieting, and once balance is regained, the changes will help the patient maintain a lower body weight by keeping the digestive system strong and clean.
