The digestive system breaks down food to provide the whole body with nutrients and energy. In the Chinese Medicine system, it is believed when the digestive system is not functioning properly, the body will weaken, compromising the immune system and impacting the metabolism, which can lead to several health issues.


Dietary therapy is a large part of treating digestive issues in conjunction with Chinese Herbal Medicine and acupuncture. Treatments focus on restoring the functions of the digestive system to treat the cause of the problem and to prevent the issue from reoccurring.


Chinese Medicine as an adjunct therapy aims to assist with a range of common digestive disorders, such as:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome

  • Abdominal pain

  • Crohn’s Disease

  • Ulcerative Colitis

  • Diarrhoea

  • Constipation

  • Nausea

  • Poor appetite

  • Heartburn

  • Abdominal bloating and distension

  • Gastroenteritis

  • Gingivitis

  • Mouth ulcers

  • Hiccough.
