Digestion & IBS

Digestion and IBS

Acupuncture is highly effective in treating most digestive disorders including – irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s Disease, colitis, 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 and allergies. Left untreated digestive imbalances can also result in fatigue, joint pain and systemic inflammation, anaemia, frequent colds and flus, allergies and skin problems.

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.  Acupuncture regulates the overall digestive function without side effects. We will also be able to help you with any dietary and lifestyle changes.  Over time, the acupuncture treatments combined with your body’s increased ability to receive and absorb nutrients, will help rebalance your system.
