Home / Digestive Health

It is estimated that over 70 million Americans have digestive disturbances and weaknesses that lead to many health problems, including autoimmune disease, allergy, acne, arthritis, chronic fatigue, dementia, psychological illnesses, and more.

Maintaining optimal health requires a strong, balanced digestive system. Unfortunately the standard American diet along with high levels of daily stress makes this almost impossible. The highly processed, high sugar and refined carbohydrates we eat have substantially altered our gut’s environment.

The core of your health starts with what you eat. The walls of your digestive tract house almost 75% of your immune system’s cells.

So we always say at our Boca Raton clinic that if you want to restore health, fix the gut!

What Causes Digestive Imbalance?

  1. Poor Diet
  2. Medications
  3. Yeast overgrowth, bugs, parasites
  4. Inadequate production of HCL and digestive enzymes
  5. Stress

Your gut performs an important job on a daily basis breaking down food, absorbing and producing nutrients from food, and keeping out toxins. That’s a lot of work and it must perform optimally to do all this work.

Digestive disturbances range from minor issues such as distention and bloating, gas, heart burn / acid reflux, constipation, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS),  to more life-threatening conditions such as Crohn’s disease,  ulcerative colitis and other autoimmune diseases. It’s so important to be proactive and keep your digestive system strong and stable.

Digestive problems respond very well to acupuncture and Chinese herbal treatment. Making the necessary dietary changes to restore and detoxify the gut also facilitates healing.

Some of the conditions we have had success with include:

Remember, digestion is the key to maintaining one’s overall health. Many conditions, including autoimmune disease start with a compromised gut. Weaknesses or imbalances can lead to chronic illness that’s why we believe at Boca Raton Acupuncture that it is important to address digestive weakness at the earliest stages and even to prevent it altogether with sound diet and acupuncture.
