Digestive System Disorders

A healthy digestive system is vital to a person’s overall health as it ensures that the body is absorbing all the necessary nutrients to sustain its functions. However, many individuals experience digestive upset, whether infrequently or chronically. Digestive problems can be highly disruptive to a person’s lifestyle and cause major discomfort. While many over-the-counter medications may help to temporarily relieve symptoms, the underlying causes are often neglected. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) works to diagnose and treat the root causes of problems in the digestive system while simultaneously provide relief for the patient.

Some common digestive problems that TCM can help with are:

    • Heartburn
    • Acid reflux
    • Constipation
    • Diarrhea
    • IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome)
    • Peptic ulcer
    • Abdominal bloating
    • Gout

Treatments will differ for each patient. Dr. Bai will diagnose the underlying cause of the patient’s digestive problems and work to create a treatment plan unique to the individual and the issue. Treatments may include acupuncture and herbal medicines.
