In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), diet is an important part of our health. Everything we eat affects our body in different ways. If we overeat or choose poor quality food it may start to cause health problems such as fatigue, weight gain or weight loss, heartburn, bloating, belching, gas, abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea.
Bloating, cramping, pain and uncontrollable bowel movements—these are just a few symptoms that people with IBS, Crohns, and Colitis suffer from on a day to day basis. It can make every day activities difficult and uncomfortable, not to mention infringe on your social life.
ACUPUNCTURE AND CHINESE MEDICINE CAN EFFECTIVELY TREAT ALL SORTS OF DIGESTIVE DISORDERS SUCH AS:
Stop suffering in silence! Fight back with a medicine that seeks to find the root cause of your illness and treat your whole body instead of just covering up symptoms. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine has been treating all kinds of digestive disorders for thousands of years. It is a system of medicine that involves treating the whole person—mind, body and spirit—with acupuncture, nutritional medicine, and herbal therapy.
Acupuncture improves the body functions of digestion, absorption and metabolism. It not only reduces ulcers and neutralizes excessive stomach acid, but calms abdominal distention—all common symptoms of IBS and colitis. Acupuncture even addresses overeating and sugar addictions!
So what’s next? Acupuncture isn’t a one-size-fits-all treatment. At Ritual Medicine we’ll discuss your diet, lifestyle and eating habits to determine what’s contributing to your digestive issues. Your sessions with the practitioner will combine treatments of acupuncture and nutritional counselling. Herbal medicine may be prescribed to manage symptoms and help reduce the amount of medication you may be taking.
It can be wonderfully empowering for a patient to not only feel better and experience better digestion from acupuncture treatments, but also feel he or she has more control over how to stay healthy.

What my clients have to say...
“For years I felt like there was an issue with my digestive system. Food travelled too quickly through me, I would have multiple loose bowel movements everyday. I wasn’t comfortable eating out since I never knew what my digestion would be doing. I have been working with Stefanie for a few months and my digestion is so much better! More predictable which gives me peace of mind knowing my body is working as it is supposed to. I am so grateful”
