Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that causes ongoing inflammation of the intestinal tract, and though it has no cure, Acupuncture and Clinical Nutrition can help relieve symptoms like fatigue, nausea, abdominal pain and bloating. My Austin Acupuncture and Wellness Center successfully helps improve the quality of life for sufferers of Crohn’s disease based on an individualized assessment of the excesses and deficiencies of Qi (energy) located in various meridians. Making sure you get enough nutrients is another crucial part of treating Crohn’s disease, and that’s why I urge my Austin acupuncture patients to consider herbal and nutritional supplementation along with regular acupuncture treatments. People with Crohn’s disease often can’t absorb all the nutrients their bodies need due to damage in the intestine, or abdominal pain and nausea may make it hard for them to eat. By creating a personalized nutritional protocol, we address the need to reduce inflammation while providing the body with essential nutrients in order to reduce symptoms and help prevent reoccurrence. Symptoms of Crohn’s disease tend to come and go, with the disease becoming active or going into remission several times during the person’s lifetime, so finding a safe and natural preventative treatment like acupuncture is important. My Austin Acupuncture and Wellness Center is here to make your life a better one so come on in and see us. It’s never too late to make a positive change.
