Gut Health Treatments

Our clinic has a special focus on stomach and bowel health, because we know that a key to the body’s health is good absorption of nutrients and good elimination of wastes

Are You Suffering From Diarrhea, Constipation, Poor Digestion or a Bowel Condition?

We offer Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture for diarrhea treatment, constipation and digestive issues at our clinic in Ringwood, Melbourne's Eastern suburbs. We also consult for complex gut conditions such as Diverticulitis, Crohn's, Ulcerative Colitis, SIBO, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and more.

Are you considering acupuncture to help with gut issues?  Acupuncture for diarrhea treatment has been used for centuries, just as it has for constipation and other gut health conditions.  Chinese herbal medicine and nutritional support are also key factors in restoring gut health.

We believe that gut health is paramount to human health.  When we optimise it, there is potential to build a stronger immune system, re-balance hormones, resolve insomnia and settle anxiety.

Our clinic has a special focus on stomach and bowel health, because we know that a key to the body’s health is good absorption of nutrients and good elimination of wastes. Our bodies need key nutrients to heal, and if our digestion isn’t working properly, our body can’t get what it needs.  Finding long-term relief then becomes an uphill battle.

Recent research proves a strong connection between the brain and the stomach.  Did you know that your gut contains over 100 million neurons?! And it has its very own nervous system (the enteric system).  Maintaining a healthy gut is absolutely crucial to having a healthy body and mind.

Furthermore, it is believed that between 70 to 80 percent of your body’s immune cells are located in your gut! This has huge implications for auto-immune diseases such as Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis.  Although antibiotics and other pharmaceutical medications may provide some relief, they do not necessarily address the cause of the problem. For example, while at times they can be life-saving, it is well-accepted now that antibiotics damage the microbiome, the vast community of intestinal bacteria that we depend upon for survival.

If you have a gastrointestinal issue such as Crohn’s disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Diverticulitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), diarrhea, constipation or stomach pain, consider booking for an appointment to see if TCM can help you.
