Digestion

BEND, OR ACUPUNCTURE FOR DIGESTION

The ability to nourish ourselves with food is arguably the most important body function there is. While the beating of our heart and our lungs’ breathing keeps us alive at the moment, without the energy and vital elements provided to us through food and drink, all functions of the body would stop.

The digestive process is complex and involves much more than just eating a meal. It starts with the sensation of being hungry and finishes with the act of elimination. Digestion is the center of the wheel, the thing that all other systems rely upon to function. Impairment at any point in the process can have wide-ranging effects on our health and wellbeing; it touches every other system of the body in essential ways.

For this reason, digestion is an area of focus in our practice. Regardless of someones’ primary area of concern, we always inquire about their digestive health and treat it accordingly.

We can treat a broad range of digestive problems successfully with a primary emphasis on herbs and dietary recommendations.

Some of our areas of focus include:

Indigestion/ heartburn/ GERD

Excessive belching and or gas

IBS

Crohn’s disease

SIBO

Lack of appetite

Food cravings

Constipation

Loose stools/ diarrhea
