Good health begins with good digestion. If you experience embarrassing and painful symptoms of bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation, and/or acid reflux, know that you are not alone. 70 million Americans suffer with digestive disorders.
My mission is to bring awareness to the brain/gut connection. Many people are unaware that most mental health afflictions such as anxiety, depression, PTSD and other mood disorders have a direct connection with the gut. When the gut's microbiome becomes balanced and leaky gut is healed with the help of Chinese herbs and supplements, brain fog, fatigue, headaches, insomnia and the aforementioned health issues clear up, too. There are over 30 neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine, that are produced in the gut. These neurotransmitters directly affect mood, focus, energy levels, and overall brain health. The entire gut lining is covered in nerves called the enteric nervous system. Acupuncture helps put the enteric nervous system in a state of ease to help with the “rest and digest” phase of the parasympathetic nervous system. Acupuncture For Digestive Health will help find the underlying pattern of your issues and aid in healing your gut.

Acupuncture has long been used to holistically treat a variety of illnesses. Although I am specializing in digestive disorders such as IBS, Crohn's, ulcerative colitis, GERD, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and others, I will see patients for a variety of issues they may have. This is because acupuncture aims to resolve the root issue, instead of treating symptoms, hence restoring balance and better health throughout the body as a whole system. Acupuncture works by boosting the body's own internal resources to heal itself.
