If you are suffering from Acne, Eczema, Recurrent infections, Nightmares or Allergy – all these are normally symptoms of a gastric underlying cause. This might also be the case if you are often tired, discouraged, irritable and have trouble focusing on things. If so, it may be time to start taking care of your bowel. When you eat, food passes a long way through your body. Once inside, it will undergo many degradation processes collectively known as digestion. The digestive organs consist of the stomach, intestines, liver, gallbladder and pancreas. When these organs interact well they work as a tuned orchestra where harmony reigns. If any of these organs are not fully working, an imbalance arises.
What symptoms can we expect if the digestion is not working properly? Well, the most common gastric problems are the following: Diarrhea, Constipation, Gluten- and Lactose intolerance, Hemorrhoids, IBS, Crohn’s disease, Intestinal Parasites, Ulcerative Colitis and Diverticulosis. As if this was not enough, Gastrointestinal problems also cause something called Secondary Diseases. These diseases are those that occur because of another illness. Examples of Secondary Diseases are Acne, Anemia, Low Blood sugar, Gallstones, Osteoarthritis, Fungal infections (Candida), and Appendix.
What can you do to make the gut work well again?
Firstly, you need to change some things including your diet, sleep or maybe behavior (which is not the easiest). However, together with your Therapist, you will examine your pattern of life, i.e. do I work too much and stress during the day? Do I eat irregularly and/or wrongly? Do I sleep enough and so on.
Today, when there are so many popular diet trends, it may be reasurring that Chinese medicine after all has more than two thousand years of experience of gastrointestinal problems!
Several underlying causes of Gastro-intestinal disorder may be caused by bacteria, viruses or parasites. So, at the clinic we analyze a blood sample so that the microbes can be identified.
They say that all roads lead to Rome, and Rome in our body is your belly. A well-functioning digestive system is the basis for your and everyone’s well-being.
