Acupuncture for Treating Leaky Gut Syndrome

Acupuncture for Treating Leaky Gut Syndrome

There are a variety of gastrointestinal and autoimmune diseases that can contribute to what is known as leaky gut syndrome. So, what exactly is leaky gut syndrome? It’s close to exactly what it sounds like. Each one of us has semi-permeable guts. What that means is the mucous lining of our intestines is designed to absorb water and nutrients from our food. Your intestinal lining is responsible for acting as a barrier to bacteria. With leaky gut syndrome, your intestinal lining “leaks” allowing more water and nutrients through, but also potentially allowing toxic molecules to come through as well.  continue reading »

The Liver and Gall Bladder

Your key to weight loss, less pain, fat digestion and hormone production

Oh, to be young forever! Thin. Vital. Have a healthy sex drive.

It starts with cleansing once a year – and very specifically with cleansing the Gall Bladder.

Your Gall Bladder is a sack that stores your bile. Bile breaks down fats and should be a watery substance, but over time it can thicken until you form gall stones. Many people end up having the Gall Bladder removed for Gall Stones. However, it’s pretty easy to thin the bile.

Bile should squirt into your stomach when you eat fatty foods to break them down. Pain in the right rib side over the liver and the gall bladder and pain in the right side back between the spine and shoulder blades can be due to your gall bladder.

Fats are so critical in the body. Our brain needs adequate fat as does our myelin nerve sheath as does our hormones – it’s all about that good healthy fat.

If our bile flow is not working, then fat can accumulate in the body forming little fat deposits or lipomas. Our liver can get fatty. Guess what else your liver does? It breaks down excess estradiol helping to prevent cancer. Guess what else your liver does? 80% of your thyroid hormone converts in your liver.

So, get together with me once a year to schedule a cleanse. If your liver enzymes are elevated or your gall bladder has already been removed, there are still protocols to turn things around!

Some of my patients work with me by phone or zoom remotely. Some of my clients are on a nutrition and herbal approach without any acupuncture – so don’t let the distance stop you from reaching out for a consultation or an online appointment.

Fixing the root issue will set you up for long term health and may prevent diseases later in life!

Schedule a phone or zoom herbal/nutritional consult today! I love, love helping nip these things in the bud, shrink the waist, and get rid of embarrassing or troubling digestive symptoms! Schedule Now by clicking here.

Five Reasons Acupuncture Helps Digestive Function

Digestion is a complex task performed by the body. It begins in the mouth and finishes when the ingested food leaves the body through the rectum. For all we have learned over the years regarding digestion, there is still so much more we don’t know or are still learning. For example, it wasn’t until recently, the last 10 years or so, that modern medicine confirmed our gastrointestinal tract is our second brain. This discovery is drastically changing the way the body and its many functions are viewed, because everything we put in our mouths can potentially have life-altering effects on the mind, as well as the body.  continue reading »

Herbal Tonics for Digestion

Digestive disorders can be simple like flatulence or gas, or they can be much more serious, such as Crohn’s disease. But regardless of the severity of the disease, there is no doubt digestive disorders affect far more people than they should, especially in the United States. A recent survey reports nearly 74 percent of all Americans are living with digestive issues. Most people don’t report it to their doctors either, because they assume it is normal to have gas, bloating or abdominal pain. But these symptoms can be indicators of much more serious underlying problems. continue reading »
