As the holidays approach you may notice an increase in digestive complaints as you indulge in those once-in-a-year foods that you normally avoid. Digestive symptoms such as heartburn, bloating, gas, abdominal pain, constipation and loose stools can be the result of food sensitivities. Food triggers may include dairy, gluten, soy, sugar, corn and processed foods in general. These are the ingredients commonly used in holiday foods. Keep this in mind as you go through the next few weeks. Not only do these foods contribute to digestive problems but also to weight gain, diabetes, heart disease and arthritis. Chronic stress exacerbates the already compromised digestive system.
What can you do? Acupuncture has been shown to significantly alleviate imbalances in the digestive system by reducing inflammation and balancing the organs, especially the liver. Diane has 16 years of experience as an acupuncturist and herbalist. In her practice, she finds acupuncture highly beneficial for gastrointestinal symptoms. Give Diane a call today at 619-808-1099.
