Gastrointestinal diseases can affect the entire digestive tract.
Common symptoms include nausea, gas, bloating, and IBS.
Treating gastrointestinal diseases is important to prevent other serious conditions from developing in the future.
There are many factors that may upset your gastrointestinal tract and its mobility. The most common factors may be, eating a low fiber diet, not getting enough exercise, traveling or changes in routine, consuming a lot of dairy products, stress, overusing anti-diarrheal medications, certain medications, or pregnancy. Gastrointestinal diseases are common and can be treated. Some examples of GI diseases include ulcerative colitis, hemorrhoids, anal fistulas, Crohn's disease, and colon cancer.
The most common symptoms of functional gastrointestinal diseases are irritable bowel syndrome, nausea, food poisoning, gas, bloating, GERD, and diarrhea. Common symptoms of structural diseases are constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, external hemorrhoids, internal hemorrhoids, anal fissures, perianal abscesses, anal fistula, diverticular disease, colon polyps or cancer, and colitis. With proper treatments, these symptoms can be greatly diminished.
At Acupuncture Wellness Services, we use a combination of modalities and techniques to regulate the flow of energy in the body to achieve outstanding results. The extensive training and experience of our practitioners enables them to successfully blend time-tested and ancient treatment protocols with modern and sophisticated therapies. One of the greatest benefits of our procedure is the ability to detect and correct energetic sensitivities to foods and the environment that might be creating symptoms in your body. Each patient is treated individually, and so the combination of techniques is determined at the time of evaluation. Our treatments integrate well with western medicine, chiropractic, massage therapy, occupational therapy, dental work and nutritional healing.
“So far my stomach pains have been significantly less. I have been having less ‘episodes’ overall. And it seems as if I am a lot less sensitive to foods which previously sparked my stomach pains.”

“ I had been suffering with ulcerative colitis for over ten years. After the birth of one of my daughters I could barely leave my house. It was so bad…. in a relatively short period of time I was free and clear of ulcerative colitis symptoms (and medication free too).”
