Rather than looking at digestive disorders symptomatically, Traditional Chinese Medicine dictates that we have to look beyond the symptoms to the root of the problem. Instead of treating constipation with laxatives, we need to ask why the body is not eliminating properly. Is it a fluid imbalance? weakness in the muscles or the colon? a dietary issue?
Common digestive disorders that respond well to Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture are:
- Acid Reflux and Heartburn
- Acute and Chronic Diarrhea
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Liver Health and Hepatitis
Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicines often play useful roles in treating many kinds of digestive disorders. Herbal formulas of many Traditional Chinese Herbs are blended specifically for each patient addressing the individual needs while eliminating unwanted side effects which may be caused by conventional treatment with over the counter medications.
