Reset & Restore Your Digestive Health

One of your most important body systems is your GI Tract! Modern research continues to confirm that our gut should be considered our second brain. This recent research supports what Chinese medicine has long considered a crucial connection in your body's overall health! Your digestive system needs to be addressed when treating almost all body system imbalances and health concerns. The gut-brain connection plays a significant role in not only digestive comfort but your emotional state, skin health and hormonal balance.

The state of your microbiome and levels of inflammation are key components that will either help or hinder your health and wellness. Your GI tract not only helps you to process food it also produces neurotransmitters and gasotransmitters, makes up 70% of your immune system and is a major distributor to many of your core bodily functions. When feeling out of sorts, know that there are natural and effective ways to treat not only your indigestion, gas, constipation and diarrhea but also skin rashes and breakouts as well as your mental health. Let us help you cultivate your inner garden so you can thrive in your daily life!


Acupuncture & Herbs  Highly Effective in Regulating your Digestion Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has so much to offer in balancing your digestive system.  Whether you suffer from chronic indigestion, acid reflux, stomach pain or more chronic inflammatory GI ailments such as, IBS, IBD, Crohn's disease, Colitis or have the stomach flu and seasonal allergies, let acupuncture and herbal medicine help you get better and back to enjoying life.


Research, and of course personal anecdotes, indicate that acupuncture and herbal medicine restores digestive balance while lowering stress and inflammation to promote and support digestive health.

Ulcers? Drink 1/2 cup aloe vera juice.

Indigestion? Feeling inflamed and bloated?


Ginger Tea each morning!

Always include a probiotic & digestive enzyme (we recommend Garden of Life's Primal Defense)

Daily defense and support for the standard American diet?

Take Microgard with every meal! (see below!)

Herbal medicine blurs the line between foods and medicines – a line that, in many cultures, was never drawn in the first place! Unfortunately our Standard American Diet (SAD!) is high in preservative and low in fresh herbs and spices when it comes to daily meals. Using herbs and spices that have disease-preventative effects in foods is one of the best ways to take advantage of their healing power. When our busy lives don't allow for this we recommend: Microgard or Microgard Plus Take it when you eat something you shouldn't have. Take it if in the past you ate a lot of something you shouldn't have. Hangover prevention. Take it with every meal to reverse the effects of the American diet.
