Digestive Problems

Acupuncture for Digestive Problems

Acupuncture has been shown to treat many digestive problems very well and in conjunction with dietary and lifestyle changes most digestive problems improve greatly. Approximately 1/3 of Irish people suffer with digestive problems from minor annoyances such as gas and bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), acid reflux (heart burn), to life-threatening illnesses such as ulcerative colitis, Crohns disease and various cancers that target digestive organs. Your digestive system is a good barometer to your overall health. If your digestive system is functioning poorly it is likely that your overall health will be compromised.

The main organs associated with digestion in Chinese medicine are the stomach and spleen. Together they are responsible for the transportation and transformation of food into qi and blood which then nourishes the whole body. The spleen and stomach balance can be upset by various external or internal factors including, stress, emotional upset (anger, worry or fear) dietary, lifestyle and eating habits to name but a few. It is important to diagnose the exact mechanism by which the causative factor is affecting the spleen and stomach in order to effectively find a solution to you digestive ailments, and return you to optimum health.

I went to Dave at Dan Tien for lower abdominal pain that had lasted for months. I’d been to numerous doctors and had so many tests, which all showed up clear. Dan Tien was recommended to me by a friend and i can see why. After treatment of abdominal acupuncture the relief was unbelievable and i am now finally pain free. I would definitely have no hesitation in going back to Dan Tien in the future. Thanks Dave!
