According to the National Institutes of Health, 60-70 million people in the United States are affected by digestive issues including chronic constipation, gastroesophageal reflux disease, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and IBS. It doesn’t help that we all tend to live stressful lives and eat the Standard America Diet (SAD).
Digestive issues are bothersome alone. However, a weak digestive system can lead to many other health issues as well such as fatigue, brain fog, skin issues like eczema, inflammation, and headaches.
Here are 3 reasons why you should try traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) for your digestive issues:
1. Personalized Approach:
TCM includes acupuncture, herbal medicine, and nutritional and lifestyle recommendations, and by combining all of these tools, we can effectively come up with an effective treatment plan for your unique condition.
2. Regulate Digestive Function:
Acupuncture has been shown to regulate gastric acid secretions, decrease inflammation, and regulate gastrointestinal motility.
3. Lower Stress:
Stress is one of the major contributors to many digestive issues, especially IBS. The combination of acupuncture and herbal medicine supports a healthier response to everyday life stressors.
With the support of TCM, you can find relief for your digestive issues. With a whole body approach, your digestive will likely not be the only area that sees improvement.
