Chinese Medicine places fundamental importance on maintaining a healthy digestive system as a foundation to overall health. Busy lifestyles, stress, antibiotics, poor dietary choices, and overseas travel can all wreak havoc on our digestive systems. Modern scientific studies have
revealed gut health is known to affect other body systems and is an important factor when addressing many types of illness.
Recent advances in research have described the importance of our digestive health and microbial balance in influencing the mind and body. Digestive issues can often correspond with anxiety, depression, and high levels of stress. Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture are excellent in relieving stress, balancing the nervous system, and harmonising digestive functions.
Many other conditions may also correspond to an impaired digestive system such as autoimmune disease, thyroid conditions, insomnia, and hormonal imbalance. If you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), bloating, weight gain, or other digestive issues please get in touch with us to find out how acupuncture and herbal medicine may benefit you.
