Chinese Herbs for Digestive problems
Chinese herbs effectively treat many digestive conditions and symptoms. The formulas we use help rectify functional imbalances of digestive organs and sooth inflamed intestinal tissue. The stomach and spleen are regarded as important organs in our body’s digestive process’. Often, we see symptoms related to a weak spleen including loose stool, bloating and appetite irregularities. When the body gets stressed the liver becomes an organ that makes everything worse! Undiagnosed issues that western medicine can’t solve are often rectified with Chinese herbs. IBS, undiagnosed cramping, chronic bloating and frequent bowel disorders are all indicated for treatment. In addition to administering herbs, your therapist will also be able to make Chinese medicine dietary suggestions to achieve treatment goals.
Chinese Herbs for Insomnia and Sleep
