If you struggle with these symptoms or disorders, you might have an unhealthy gut microbiome!

Often times people are so used to living with digestive issues and discomfort, that they might not even realize the greater threat they can pose to overall health and wellbeing. What’s more, they may not know how to address their digestive issues, which means that many digestive disorders go untreated.


In addition to digestive symptoms, our gut microbiome plays a role in many other aspects of our health, including:

  • Nutrient Absorption

  • Hormone Regulation

  • Mood

  • Focus

  • Neurotransmitters

  • Metabolism

  • Bone Density

  • Immune Function

  • Insulin Sensitivity

  • Ability to Eliminate Toxins

Cultivating a healthy gut is vital to health and wellbeing. So how can you do that?


Top ways to promote gut health:

  • Drink Bone Broth

  • Eat Fermented Foods

  • Take High Quality Probiotic Supplements

  • Limit Processed Foods

  • Eat Prebiotic Foods

  • Manage Stress

  • Get Proper Sleep

  • Stay Hydrated

  • Limit Excess Refined Carbohydrates

  • Don’t Smoke or Vape

  • Avoid Excess Alcohol

  • Chew Your Food Slowly and Thoroughly

  • Eat Organic Whenever Possible

  • Limit Refined Carbs

  • Try Acupuncture!

Studies have found acupuncture to be an effective treatment for bloating, nausea, indigestion, and other digestive issues. Research has also shown that acupuncture can stimulate peristalsis in the intestinal tract, which can be helpful for people who struggle with chronic constipation. This Traditional Chinese modality has also been found to support the digestive process of breaking down foods - minus the excess gas that can cause bloating. Acupuncture is also very beneficial to balancing stress, which can play a role in digestive flare-ups.


In addition to digestive issues and stress, acupuncture is also used to treat a range of other health issues and imbalances, including hormonal, gynecological, neurological, respiratory, musculoskeletal, emotional, eye, ear, nose, and weight issues.


During a typical acupuncture session, your Maitland Acupuncturist will gently insert tiny, hair thin needles into specific points to promote balance and support your body’s natural healing abilities.
