Gastrointestinal Conditions

Gastrointestinal problems affect virtually everyone at one time or another; however, millions of Americans suffer from chronic problems, like IBS. Conditions like IBS, heartburn, diarrhea, nausea & vomiting, and abdominal pain can affect your quality of life.  It may keep you from enjoying activities with your friends and family. Your mood can also be affected, and you may feel irritable and stressed. On the other hand, stress can also aggravate any GI conditions that you may have.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (acupuncture and herbs) can help balance your system and alleviate your signs (things that can be seen by another) and symptoms (things that can only be felt by you).

Chinese medicine can help relieve your abdominal and epigastric pain, alleviate your diarrhea and constipation, and help with the burning pain of acid reflux. Chinese medicine can also help alleviate the stress that aggravates your particular condition.

Here is a partial list of conditions that Traditional Chinese Medicine can help improve:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Biliary colic
  • Dysentery, acute bacillary
  • Pain in the epigastric region, acute (in peptic ulcer, acute and chronic gastritis and gastrospasm)
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Ulcerative colitis
