Digestion and IBS

Acupuncture is highly effective in treating most digestive disorders including – irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Chron’s Disease, food allergies and sensitivities, chronic constipation, diarrhoea, ulcers, heartburn, acid reflux and many more.

People with digestive disorders can experience a range of symptoms such as upper or lower abdominal pain or cramping, bloating or intestinal gas, nausea or vomiting, a feeling of fullness, chronic constipation or diarrhoea, blood in the stool, difficulty in passing stool, acid reflux and heartburn, food sensitivities or allergies, etc. Left untreated digestive imbalances can also result in fatigue, joint pain and systemic inflammation, anaemia, frequent colds and flus, allergies, skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis or dermatitis.

Digestive disorders usually indicate an overall health imbalance. The stresses and strains of modern living can also take their toll on our digestive systems as can poor dietary habits.

Acupuncture can reduce abdominal pain, bloating and intestinal inflammation, increase gastrointestinal strength, regulate stomach acid secretion, stop chronic diarrhoea, or increase bowel movements in the case of chronic constipation. It basically regulates the overall digestive function with no side effects. We will also be able to guide you towards the necessary dietary and lifestyle changes that are critical in stopping the vicious cycle.
