Acupuncture for Digestive Problems and Abdominal Pain

Serving Providence, Cranston, Warwick and all of RI

Traditional Chinese medicine understands problems of digestion and elimination as the effects of energy moving against its natural flow. Acupuncture works to shift that flow of energy to improve both digestive functioning and elimination. This can be a subtle shift that occurs over the course of weeks, or it can be an immediate and dramatic improvement, depending upon the condition.

At the Traditional Eastern Medicine clinic, our Doctors of Acupuncture combine acupuncture with herbal therapy and dietary therapy to treat patients with a wide range of medical conditions involving digestion, such as:

  • Nausea from chemotherapy
  • Severe morning sickness during pregnancy
  • Abdominal pain from gastritis, peptic ulcers, intestinal ulcers
  • GERD and acid reflux
  • Crohn's disease and colitis
  • Food allergies

Acupuncture can also be effective for patients with absorption of nutrients and elimination problems, such as:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Constipation and diarrhea
  • Incontinence
  • Bloating and gas
  • Gallstones and kidney stones

Acupuncture Care for Cancer Patients

If you are undergoing cancer treatment, acupuncture can help you better tolerate the effects of chemotherapy, radiation therapy and the multitude of medications you may be taking. We provide gentle, compassionate care for cancer patients in all stages of treatment and disease progression. Even patients in the final stages of illness can find relief from pain and improved quality of life through the use of Chinese medicine.

Diet Therapy and Chinese Herbal Medicine

Proper diet and the use of Chinese herbal medicines can be particularly effective for treating digestive problems. Our doctors can both prescribe and provide herbs for your use.
