Digestion

Acupuncture can be a tremendous resource for aiding in the improvement of digestive health or "gut health”.  Acupuncture helps improve and support the functions of digestion, absorption and metabolism of food. 

Signs of an unhealthy digestive system are bloating, nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhoea, IBS, Crohn’s disease, indigestion, epigastric or abdominal pain, poor appetite, ulcers, reflux,/heartburn, bacterial infections, haemorrhoids.

Digestive disorders can also indicate an overall health imbalance, and can result in endocrine and nervous system hyperactivity.

It is also said, that some 70% or more of our immune system is located in the digestive tract, therefore having a healthy supported digestive system also helps support our immune system.

At AcuHealth it is common for our therapists to utilize a wide variety of treatment methods to treat a digestive disturbance. These can include acupuncture, moxibustion, Chinese herbs, nutritional supplementation, hair mineral analysis, and diet and lifestyle advice.
