Digestion problems can be debilitating to say the least, with symptoms ranging from cramping to nausea, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, and IBS.
Chinese medicine believes that digestion problems present an imbalance between the liver and the spleen. For example the spleen is responsible for the taking in of food, converting it to energy, and supplying this energy to the different organs of the body. And the liver's job is to make sure all of this works effectively.
When this energy is not flowing smoothly, it has a knock on effect on the spleen and disrupts the digestive system, which in turn causes unpleasant symptoms in the intestine and can sometimes lead to IBS.
At Care Cure Acupuncture the treatments are aimed at restoring liver and spleen harmony and returning the body to a healthy balance. This harmony is achieved by strengthening the spleen, increasing liver energy, and improving the digestion function.
Food allergies can also trigger bad digestion. Care Cure clinics offer a comprehensive intolerance test for food and environmental allergens. This leads to dietary improvements, which in turn lead to an improved body system.
The Chinese therapies that successfully treat digestive disorders are acupuncture, moxibustion, and herbs.
