Gut health has become something you hear a lot about in recent times, particularly in regards to how it can directly affect overall health and wellbeing. The links between poor digestive health and chronic illnesses have now become too compelling to ignore. Symptoms of poor gut health can include bloating, wind, diarrhoea, inability to absorb nutrients, and an overall poor feeling. Poor gut health may also manifest itself as colds and cases of flu, changes in appetite, food sensitivities, and allergies that seem to worsen. Poor gut health may have negative effects on everything from mood and energy to digestion. There are many things you can try to improve your gut health, including changing your diet, using probiotics, and using acupuncture for gut health to assist with the management of pain, stress and fatigue related to gut health, in consultation with other treating health practitioners.
When we use acupuncture for digestion problems or acupuncture for a leaky gut, we apply the needles to specific pressure points on the body. These pressure points release hormones and chemicals that aim to bring balance to the gut and restore wellness to the body. Acupuncture may assist in alleviating digestive symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, constipation and diarrhoea. It may also provide pregnancy nausea relief for women experiencing morning sickness.
Chinese Medicine and acupuncture for gut health can be used as an adjunct treatment to conventional Western Medicine treatments. For more information about acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in Melbourne for gut related concerns, call Melbourne Acupuncture & Wellness Centre on 0415 561 277.
