Today, so many people find themselves under tremendous stress. Stress to get the job done, stress to get the kids to school, stress to make good grades, and the list goes on and on. Many people suffer from digestive issues such as bloating, gas, acid reflux, constipation or diarrhea.
In an effort to alleviate symptoms, many people begin taking drugs such as Prilosec or Nexium. In Chinese medicine, these drugs put out the fire in our stomach! When the fire is gone, our stomach doesn't know what to do with the food we put in it! Have you ever felt like after dinner, the food just sits there. You fill full for quite some time, uncomfortably so. The food is not moving through the digestive tract properly. This can lead to being overweight.
We treat these problems on a daily basis with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. When you visit us at Beaches Acupuncture & Wellness Center, we thoroughly evaluate your diet, the prescription drugs you are on as well as supplements, and we take the time to tell you what you are doing that is great and what you are doing that could be improved upon. We don't want you to put out the fire in the stomach, so we treat you to reduce the acid levels and relieve stress. This also helps to aid in digestion and assist the body back to health so weight is not retained.
If you or anyone you know has been on antacids or drugs such as Prilosec for a long time, please give them our number. We want to help you change your health, naturally.
