Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease are chronic conditions referred to as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).  They currently have no known cure and the management of these diseases with western pharmaceuticals or surgery can have severe side effects and complications.  The good news is that these particular inflammatory diseases respond very well to Chinese Medicine. Here in our clinic we employ internal Chinese Herbal Medicine to address the inflammation of the bowels and help them heal naturally, without the immuno-suppressive effects of pharmaceuticals.  Acupuncture is sometimes added as an adjunct therapy, especially when stress makes the symptoms worse. If you suffer from IBD, Chinese Medicine can help:
  • Stop pain
  • Stop bleeding
  • Stop diarrhea
  • Relieve gas & bloating
  • Resolve constipation
  • Regulate bowel movements naturally
If you have proctitis, colitis, ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease and are always worried about where the nearest toilet is, it is time to make an appointment so we can help you get your life back.
