Digestive Disorders

Ever wonder why your friends can tolerate gluten or dairy but you cannot? It has a lot too do with the quality and state of your digestive system. The integrity and functionality of your digestive system is extremely variable and dependent on numerous nutritional, lifestyle elements and potentially environmental components which can minimize your digestions ability to function at an optimal capacity. The good news is, it can be easily treated with acupuncture and herbal medicine! 

At North Shore Acupuncture and Natural Medicine the use of both Eastern and Western nutritional philosophies combined with acupuncture, herbal medicine, and natural supplements are integrated to affectively resolve digestive disorders quickly and affectively. 

Poor digestion can correlate to pathologies and irritants that do not fall under a Western diagnosed disease such as;

  • Chronic fatigue

  • Chronic pain

  • Leaky gut

  • Anxiety or excessive worrying 

  • Excessive phlegm or post nasal drip (just to name a few)

Additionally, there are numerous diseases and disorders that patients do have a Western diagnosis for, that can be successfully treated with acupuncture and herbal medicine without the use of steroids, pain killers, and other harmful pharmaceuticals.
