Keep your digestion on track!

Digestive issues can range from being uncomfortable and painful to debilitating. You don't have to suffer anymore.

Acupuncture can help with common digestive complaints as well as acute (once in a while) or chronic (never-ending) digestive disorders. 

Des Moines Acupuncture can help relieve common digestive issues, and keep your digestion on track. 

Acupuncture Can Improve Digestive Problems


Why does my stomach hurt all the time?

Digestive issues can be caused by a number of factors. Stress plays a major role in your digestive system. When you are stressed or overwhelmed, your body responds by releasing cortisol. This can increase the amount of acid in your stomach which causes indigestion, nausea, diarrhea, or constipation. In more serious cases, stress can decrease blood flow and oxygen to your stomach which can lead to stomach pains or cramps, inflammation, gastrointestinal disorders and more.

Dietary issues are also a primary cause for digestive problems. Food intolerances are continuing to rise across the country.  Our food system contains more high fructose corn syrup and chemically processed foods than ever before. Just a few of these factors can cause major disturbances with your natural digestive process.

Acupuncture Can Relieve Digestive Issues

The good news is, poor digestion can be alleviated with acupuncture, Chinese herbs, supplements, and lifestyle changes. We can help you reduce stress, boost your metabolism, and regulate your digestive process.

Acupuncture helps your digestive system by nourishing your digestive organs, reducing inflammation, and regulating your endocrine and nervous systems to improve digestion.

During your first consultation at Des Moines Acupuncture, we will look at your whole health history and identify the underlying reasons you may be having digestive issues. Even though your digestive issue resides in your abdominal area, your treatment plan will include whole body care. For example, we may treat symptoms of gas or bloat with acupuncture points in your hands or your knees.  All treatments will be personalized to address your specific needs.
