How does acupuncture help to resolve digestive problems?

The acupuncturist and herbalist in CA, Dr. Shen and her team of highly skilled staff are qualified to treat digestive problems of the body by using Chinese herbal medicines, providing supplements, and including dietary changes.

The theory of treating digestive related problems lies in the fact that the Spleen and the Stomach must function in harmony. The spleen’s primary function is to transport and transform essential nutrients across the body. The spleen’s natural morphology is to function while in a moist state. The stomach natural morphology is function while in a dry state. When they begin to malfunction is when their harmony is disrupted creating an imbalance in the way they function. Chinese medicine uses acupuncture, herbal medicines, and, moxibustion to solve digestive problems.


Moxibustion is a therapeutic technique of applying ignited herbal medicines over the affected part of the body or over the acupuncture points. This method is known to warm up cold areas of the body and moderate the temperature. It also helps to treat inflammation and most gastrointestinal conditions. Moxibustion can help relieve patients who suffer from gastrointestinal disorders thereby treating digestive problems of the body.
