Are you suffering every time you eat? Are you finding it hard to lose weight even though you don’t each much? Do you have heart burn or experience gas and bloating after eating? Are you tired instead of energized? Do you have unexplainable food sensitivities? Do you have poor memory and brain fog? If you answered YES to any of these common digestive ailments, now is the time to seek help.

Eating should be pleasurable. Food should give you energy and good health. It should enhance your life in every way. Licensed acupuncturist Soraya Applegate specializes in treating digestive disorders using a combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine, simple nutritional advice and herbal supplements.

The World Health Organization states that acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for digestive problems. Traditional Chinese Medicine has been treating digestive problems effectively for thousands of years. Acupuncture works by nourishing the digestive organs, reducing inflammation in the stomach, spleen and pancreas, and improving overall digestive functions.

During treatment, Soraya will identify the underlying root issues causing gut problems and use acupuncture points to help bring harmony to your digestive system. This will reduce gastric acid, regulate intestinal function, and restore stomach acidity to normal levels. Many people take antacids every day—these damage the digestive tract. Acupuncture can heal it, so antacids are no longer needed.

As well as using acupuncture, Soraya also incorporates moxibustion therapy, a relaxing technique of using warm moxa herb on the body, which helps to heal the digestive tract, decrease stress and improve metabolism. She will also ask you to keep a food diary so she can help with simple nutritional recommendations, starting with daily meal recipes and may recommend high quality supplements or herbal formulas.

Healing physical digestive issues will also help heal the mind and spirit. It’s now understood that there is a deep connection between the gut, mind and emotions. Acupuncture is an ancient holistic health system that excels at healing the whole body, mind and soul. Brain fog, depression or anxiety could stem from a digestive imbalance. Once digestion is healed, most people find their emotions are healed as well.

So, don’t suffer any longer, call Soraya now and start your healing process.
