Acupuncture for digestive issues helps by balancing the weakness in the stomach that can occur. The stomach digests the food that we eat and the spleen transforms the food we eat into energy and blood. Eating very cold food and excessive raw food in winter can deplete the stomach as the stomach likes warm and cooked food which will manifest as digective issues. Too much spicy food can also disturb digestion as it can create a lot of heat in the stomach.
The bile secreted by the gall bladder also helps digestion so if the gall bladder is not functioning well the digestive system can suffer.
Acupuncture helps by balancing the energy to the digestive system so that it can perform optimally. Again we approach this holistically as the reason why these issues are manifesting vary from person to person. You can read more about how acupuncture for digestive issues works here.
Besides having acupuncture for digestive issues there are other factors that help. What is also important is that the stomach not only digests food but also information that bombards us all the time from the outside, has also to be digested. So it is very important that we only allow good news to come into our life as this also can affect us physically. The Chinese say dont eat and read at the same time as each requires digesting.
Eating the right food that you enjoy is paramount in this day and age. We are bombarded with different diets every other day and people lose the joy of eating what they truly enjoy and what they were brought up on that meant a lot to them. This is food for our spirit not just our body and I firmly believe that this is one of the causes of disease that people stopped following their intuition and stopped eating seasonal food .
When I get back home from work I always sit for 10 minutes and tune in to see what my body desires. Meat, carbohydrate what flavours do I fancy and when it comes to me I go and cook it. We must eat slowly and be conscious of the time we spend at the table the more joy we have the more our body will digest it.
