In Chinese medicine, the digestive system, particularly the Spleen and Stomach, is considered to be at the centre of the human body, fundamental to the functioning of all other body systems. If the digestive system doesn’t work properly, it’s going to contribute to issues across the entire body; increased inflammation, decreased energy and vitality, toxin accumulation, decreased immune function, poor sleep, emotional imbalance, plus many other conditions and symptoms.
Modern day living has contributed to tummy troubles and elimination issues for many Canadians. From toxic farming process like growing genetically modified crops (GMOs), pesticides and other poisons, to highly processed, sugar and chemical filled fake foods, eating on the go or while stressed, and extreme dieting, our lifestyle is often the cause of digestive conditions. Known as epigenetic factors, our lifestyle choices can trigger our DNA to begin to express itself as chronic illness.
Acupuncture, herbal medicine and Chinese medicated diet (also call food cures or food as medicine) can be used to bring digestion back into balance to address conditions like irritable bowel, IBS, Crohn’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, acid reflux, chronic constipation, leaky gut and SIBO and many other digestive issues. Rather than just treat or mask the symptom, the goal in Chinese medicine is to identify and address the root cause of disease and disharmony. Chinese medicine and acupuncture are holistic in nature, honouring everything that you bring to the table.
