Are you looking for acupuncture in the gulf coast area or near Mobile, Alabama for help with GERD, IBS, or chronic digestive issues? Look no further. We are a classical acupuncture clinic for all your acupuncture needs. Classical acupuncture does more than just treat pain. We use holistic evaluation to get to the “root” of the problem and help you adjust your lifestyle accordingly. Specialized acupuncture treatments combined with Tao Nutrition (East-Asian healing food strategy) address a variety of problems including acid reflux, diarrhea, constipation, digestive upset, nausea, and chronic digestive problems. Why?
A variety of acupuncture points and almost ALL of the meridians address metabolism and digestion to some degree. This is because it is our body’s basic process of making chi (life energy), and for absorbing nutrients and eliminating waste, which has to be done every single day for an optimally healthy life. If you look in the mirror and your tongue is pale, swollen, toothmarked, or has many cracks in it, these are all signs that some part of the digestive system is not as healthy as it could be. If you have frequent gas, bloating, loose stools, acid reflux, “indigestion” or an always bitter taste in your mouth, it is time for an acupuncture check-up!
The health of the Spleen and Stomach are centrally important to the health of the entire digestive system in classical acupuncture theory. One of the most widely used acupuncture treatments ever created is called “Harmonize the Earth”, applied for a healthy digestion. Handed down for generations from the Earth School of medicine in ancient China, it treats many digestive complains through four specific actions: harmonizing Spleen and Stomach, supporting Shen (one’s spirit or mental health and joy), nourishing Yin , and clearing Dampness. Modern medical science is recently beginning to understand the impact of digestive health on one’s mental health through the study of microbiome and the gut-brain axis. Harmonize the Earth for centuries has considered the mental along with the physical. This was often the first treatment that every patient would receive when being treated by an Earth School practitioner. With this and other classical treatments, we help you regain your good digestive health so that you can feel better, have more energy, absorb your nutrients and enjoy food again!
