acupuncture for gastrointestinal disorders

Acupuncture successfully addresses digestive issues and improves gut health. It aids in resolving abdominal pain and hypochondriac discomfort, reduces bloating, regulates bowel movements, and lowers stress and inflammatory reactions in the body. It can also address the rashes, fatigue, and headaches that may accompany gastrointestinal disorders.

It has been shown that 90% of the body’s serotonin resides in the gut. So it is no surprise that so many GI issues seem to be aggravated during the high-stress times in one’s life.

Common patient issues that we treat with Acupuncture include:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Celiac’s Disease
  • Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)
  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
  • Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LPR)
  • Gallstones
  • Acid Reflux
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • Weakened Digestion

Depending on your presenting symptoms and lab work, we may recommend testing for food sensitivity issues in conjunction with acupuncture. We can also work with your primary care doctor to order additional lab work, so that your insurance is maximized, or you can order labs with us.
