Modern society has us moving at a fast pace. In order to keep up we may not always make the best decisions to support our digestive systems. In some cases, we think we’re doing the right thing by espousing a popular healthy diet. In other cases we haven’t been given the information that we need to support ourselves or we’re making a slow recovery from poor habits of the past.

I look at each patient holistically: How are all body systems functioning? What are the diet and lifestyle contributions? What is the role of stress on your digestion? I consider the whole person, mind, body and spirit when treating any complaint. When the digestion is strong, all other body systems operate more effectively. This means that no matter the complaint, nutrition and lifestyle are addressed with my patients.
There is no need to let digestive discomforts keep you from living life to it’s fullest. Whether your complaint is constipation with painful hemorrhoids, unpredictable irritable bowel syndrome or painful ulcerative colitis, a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine and diet modifications can get you back on track.
In addition to acupuncture and herbal medicine, I support each of my patients with an individualized nutrition and lifestyle plan as well as qigong exercise prescriptions.
