Gastrointestinal health can be vital for feelings of good health. If your digestion system isn’t functioning properly it may disrupt your emotions, hormone levels, sleep cycle or physical ability due to discomfort.
Irritable bowel syndrome is a very common pattern of disharmony we see in clinic. Traditional Chinese Medicine finds and aims to treat the root of the problem opposed to only treating the symptoms of the disease. We take into consideration emotional disturbances (i.e. stress or hormonal imbalances), dysfunctions between internal organs; your current eating habits, nutritional choice of food or whether there is an overall weakness of the digestive system.
