Natural Treatment of Gastrointestinal Issues

Acupuncture is commonly used in the treatment of many gastrointestinal disorders, such as: irritable bowel disease, reflux, nausea, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s, constipation, and diarrhea. It helps by calming inflammation, balancing the autonomic nervous system (fight/flight vs rest, digest, relax and heal), increasing circulation to affected organs, regulating intestinal motility, restoring stomach acidity to normal levels, improving gastric emptying and reducing stress. In conjunction with herbal medicine, exercise and diet, acupuncture is a powerful, effective and safe treatment for many gastrointestinal issues.
