Digestive Health

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the digestive system has for thousands of years been considered the “centre”.

It is the anchoring foundation for good health, and the pivot on which the other bodily systems turn. If there is imbalance in the centre, it is difficult for the other systems of the body to maintain the delicate balance that is well being.

At the Elements of Health Centre, we use Traditional Chinese Medicine in the form of acupuncture, herbs, diet therapy, and lifestyle counselling to help with a variety of digestive concerns.

With an increasing number of people suffering from disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, TCM is a gentle yet effective tool to promote relief and healing.

TCM can also be used for digestive disorders such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s. Each person is treated on the basis of their individual concerns and needs, and we are a happy to work with you to achieve your personal health goals. Even if you are not experiencing any type of Inflammatory Bowel Disorder, improving digestion has many benefits and can help you lose or maintain your weight, increase energy, improve sleep and boost mood.

Symptoms and conditions that can be treated with TCM include but are not limited to: • Gas • Bloating • Pain/cramping • Heartburn • Diarrhea • Constipation • Malabsorption • IBS/IBD • Ulcerative colitis • Crohn’s • Candidaisis • Parasitic infections • Symptoms triggered by food sensitivities • Increased permeability of the GI tract
