Digestive Issues


Digestive issues can be tricky to treat because no matter what you put in, your tummy is left feeling upset and yucky. Acupuncture is a fantastic treatment because it doesn’t involve consuming anything that may cause irritation.

What causes digestive issues?

The causes of digestive disorders are multiple. Sometimes a digestive disorder is restricted to the digestive system, and sometimes it’s a symptom of a wider systemic problem.

Some digestive disorders could have more than one cause, as well as multiple symptoms, and could affect more than one section of the digestive system. 

While a disorder could have a specific cause, there could be other factors exacerbating the symptoms.

Common patient disorders

  • Constipation
  • IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome)
  • Bloating
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
