If a patient is suffering with digestive issues the first change we recommend is switching to warm cooked foods and room temperature/warm fluids.
This is even more important in the cold months.
If your digestion is weak ingesting cold, raw food takes a lot of digestive energy.
Most of the time your digestive system will slow way down leaving you with bloating, reflux, constipation, undigested food in stool, or loose stool.
Warm food is much easier for your body to digest. Since it is cooked your body can easily excrete the nutrients from your food.
Ate too much raw food and feeling uncomfortable? Try a warm cup of tea to help aid in digestion.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can help with a number of digestive issues: IBS, UC, Chrons, Celiac, gallbladder issues, nausea, constipation, diarrhea, acid reflux, stomach ulcers. Questions on how to improve your digestion? Send us a message.
