Holistic digestive health : Acupuncture and herbal medicine

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the digestive system digests not only food and drink but also emotions and thoughts, nurturing the spirit and releasing what isn’t needed. Worry, anxiety, stress, and overthinking can disrupt digestion.

TCM can effectively address various symptoms and emotional imbalances in the digestive system.

The diagnostic approach in TCM involves analyzing whether the “digestive fire” is balanced for proper digestion and absorption of food.

When the “digestive fire” is weak, it leads to improper digestion, overworking the spleen-stomach and causing symptoms like bloating, gas, lack of hunger, vomiting, and abdominal pain.

Conversely, when the “digestive fire” is too intense, it can result in constant hunger, acidity, weight loss, and potentially serious conditions like gastritis and stomach ulcers.

To maintain a healthy digestive system and prevent these symptoms, TCM can rebalance the “digestive fire.”

In our studio, we offer two specialised herbal formulas and acupuncture treatment for digestive disorders:

  • Earth Formula: Nourishes the digestive system, regulates bowel movements, and improves chronic indigestion, diarrhea, IBS, and stress-related digestion issues.
  • Harmonizing Formula: Calms stomach fire, regulates bowel movements, aids in fat digestion, and improves chronic indigestion, constipation, and digestive inflammatory problems.

Acupuncture treatment focuses on eliminating stagnation and bloatedness while enhancing energy flow in the digestive system.
