Ways Bergen acupuncture can help with digestive issues

Digestive issues can be caused by a variety of things. Whether it’s because you have a nervous stomach and you get sick from anxiety or you’re living with irritable bowel syndrome, your overall well-being is negatively impacted. At Amla Healing Arts, we can provide a solution with Bergen acupuncture. If you’ve never considered acupuncture as an effective method of treating your digestive problems, we’ve outlined several ways that it’s been proven to help.

Why should I resolve digestive issues?

It might seem like a silly question to ask, but sometimes if you’ve lived with something long enough you learn to deal with it. Digestive issues are not something you should have to learn to live with. Not only does it make for an uncomfortable lifestyle but it can also lead to long-term damage to your digestive system. Frequent diarrhea can exacerbate an overall issue and cause lasting damage to your colon. By addressing and resolving digestive issues, you’ll find that your overall temperament is improved and you won’t have to address health problems in the future.

Holistic treatment

The most effective way to treat any malady you’re dealing with is to take a holistic approach. While a sinus infection can often be easily treated with a direct approach, something like digestive issues can be the result of a variety of different things your body is dealing with. This could be caused by anxiety, foods you’re eating, or other internal issues that need help getting sorted out. With acupuncture, you’ll find that your body is brought into balance, which will make each of your body’s systems work better in concert with one another so you’ll feel much better overall.

Stimulates peristalsis

Sometimes the problems we have in our gut are caused by a backup or blockage. Acupuncture can help with this by stimulating peristalsis, which is the movement that your intestines make to move the contents through. This is done with a wave-like movement that is made as muscles contract throughout. If these muscles are too tense, they can’t effectively move food or waste through the system to be absorbed and eventually evacuated. With help of acupuncture, you’ll find that your digestive system moves much more regularly and you won’t have nearly as many problems.

Relieves anxiety

It’s normal to have a nervous stomach. This can be the result of your job, family stress, or an upcoming event. Acupuncture is a great way to help manage stress as it helps to relieve your anxiety. You’ll feel much more relaxed every day, which will translate to your gut health.

Helps with metabolism

Another frequent cause of digestive problems is a slow metabolism. If your body is slow at processing food, you can easily develop a blockage as your system isn’t clearing waste fast enough. With help from acupuncture, you can increase your metabolism, which will help to clear waste while absorbing and breaking down food faster.
