The digestive tract according to Western Medicine is very complicated and mysterious. Lots of ailments take years to treat and/or can’t be cured. In Chinese Medicine all digestive issues are broken down to a person to person basis. There is no one way to treat heartburn. There is no one way to treat GERD. There is no one way to treat constipation or diarrhea. Each ailment requires a look at what your body looks and acts like in the last month. It is your current body and your specific body. When we treat with herbs, acupuncture and simple, manageable diet changes most digestive issues are better in hours or days. Symptoms that are decades old improve overnight. But it requires simplicity and letting go of what you have heard works for other people. Digestion is entirely customized for each person.
Diet and Nutrition
Most of my patients have impeccable diets. They have read every book on digestive well-being under the sun. But they originally found me because none of the cure-alls were working for them. Most don’t. Some of my patients have been told it is in their heads or because of their stress level. They are told to quit their job or change their life in order to make digestive issues go away. We don’t all have that luxury. Some of us need to get healthier digestive tracts before we can manage a life change. That is why I help patients simplify their diets. Often when I make changes to people’s diets they reveal that those are all their favorite foods. That eating like that sounds heavenly. The body does often give us clues to what it needs to eat.
