Acupuncture for Mental and Gut Health
What does your stomach have to do with your mood? It turns out, quite a lot! There is a growing body of research that shows a big connection between your digestive health and your mental well-being. Most of us know that high levels of stress can cause uncomfortable digestive problems like gas and bloating, but science is now proving that this can work in the opposite direction. A poor digestive system can actually lead to an imbalance of neurotransmitters in the brain, contributing to anxiety, depression and ADHD.
Feeling positive, calm and centered is something most of strive for, but this can be difficult to maintain in our very busy, stress-filled lives. Acupuncture has been shown to boost serotonin, endorphins, and other feel-good brain chemicals naturally, which helps to improve mood and increases our ability to concentrate. Acupuncture and herbs can treat the underlying cause of your low mood, while also improving the quality of your sleep and your digestive function. Come in for a free consultation if you suffer with any of the following:
- Poor Concentration
- Foggy brain
Eating together is often the time when we connect with family and friends, so how well we feel about our ability to enjoy and assimilate food is an important aspect of our health. Our digestive function is at the heart of our well-being. We need to process and break down our food in order to create the energy we need to power through our day to day lives. Acupuncture and Herbs can help strengthen your digestive system, assisting with the following digestive problems.
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Diarrhea or loose stool
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
- Low or Excessive Appetite
