How can Chinese Medicine help with your indigestion?
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can help with your gas and bloating, acid reflux, or IBS and other symptoms of indigestions. Through a Chinese Medicine consultation I can assess the nature of your indigestion and guide you back to health.
Lifestyle and Nutrition
Our everyday habits influence our digestion. Our digestion is our center and we consider it Earth out of the 5 Elements of Earth, Metal, Water, Wood and Fire. If we are habitually eating foods that cause one of these elements to be out of balance then some kind of indigestion will occur.
Let’s take a look at gluten sensitivities. I have personal experience in that eating gluten effects my Wood and Earth elements. Wood will over act onto the Earth. Symptoms of Wood over acting on Earth are irritability, gas and bloating, alternating diarrhea and constipation.
Gluten can make people feel ‘Damp’. This is related to the Earth Element as well. Dampness symptoms are fatigue, feeling of heaviness, puffiness, foggy thinking, water retention, bloating, etc. Sound familiar? Have you ever known a friend that quit or reduced gluten and noticed they look slimmer, less irritable? That’s the Damp being resolved!
Giving up gluten is always something I suggest. It’s free! After that we can get to the real root cause and repair whatever damage may have been done from years of bad eating habits.
