Digestive Disorders

Last updated: 12 February, 2018
by Jane Ferguson, General Practice

Digestive disorders commonly respond well to treatment. These include diarrhea, constipation [learn more here], IBS [research on IBS and Chinese medicine], loss of appetite (or excessive appetite!), nausea, heartburn, reflux [research on upper digestive system and Chinese medicine], burping, indigestion and hypoglycemia, for a short list of examples.

If one’s digestive system is so weak that herbal treatments are not tolerated, a course of gentle acupuncture treatments may be used to gradually strengthen the ability to handle foods and herbs.
