Digestive Disorders

Heal your gut naturally!

Gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, heartburn, indigestion, nausea, belching, acid reflux,abdominal pain…  Proper digestive function is crucial for establishing and maintaining optimal health. The cornerstones of good health include proper digestion of food, assimilation of nutrients, exclusion of pathogens and timely elimination of waste. Poor digestion and malabsorption of vital nutrients can contribute to degenerative diseases, compromised immune function and nutritional deficiencies. Impairment of intestinal functions can contribute to the development of food allergies, systemic illnesses, autoimmune disease, and toxic overload.

Digestive disorders can come with a wide variety of symptoms as well as causes. Stress, diet, lifestyle, food sensitivities, low stomach acid, parasites, bacteria, virus and dysbiosis are just some of the factors that lead to digestive symptoms. Instead of taking medications such as Prilosec or Imodium, which only temporarily mask the symptoms, we really should be looking into where these symptoms are coming from.


At New Direction Natural Medicine, we help patients pinpoint the root issues leading to their digestive discomfort. We also provide you with a wide variety of natural health solutions to help repair your gut and restore your digestive health optimally. Read below to find out how we can help you!

Acupuncture for Digestive Disorders


Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to help patients with digestive problems. Acupuncture works by assisting the digestive system in healthy absorption and elimination, improving the assimilation of nutrients and balancing the function of sorting the nutrients from the waste. It reduces ulcers and neutralizes excessive stomach acid, and even addresses overeating and sugar addiction. Acupuncture stimulates blood flow to the liver, gall bladder, stomach, pancreas, small intestine and large intestine to improve digestive organ function. Acupuncture works quickly and efficienctly to improve your digestion and eliminate digestive symptoms.

Chinese Herbal Medicine


Digestive disorders can be treated naturally with Chinese herbal medicine. Herbs are customized to treat your individual symptoms as well as treat the root cause. Chinese herbal formulas are created to treat underlying root patterns and address your digestive symptoms simultaneously. Herbs are used to strengthen the digestive system, reduce inflammation in the digestive tract, reduce counterflow (i.e. heartburn, acid reflux), regulate the bowels and reduce abdominal pain and discomfort. Chinese herbs are also used to treat the underlying cause and are very powerful in killing bacteria, virus, fungus and parasites.

Nutritional Counseling


Are you eating the right foods for your body? Many patients think they are eating a good healthy diet when in fact they may be sabotaging their health. For instance, some patients eat too many raw and cold foods and other patients eat too much fatty or spicy foods. Balance in the diet is essential for proper digestion. We can help you make better choices in your diet to reduce inflammation and promote a healthy digestive system. Custom food therapy plans will help guide you in making diet choices appropriate for your body.

Food Sensitivity Testing


Did you know that foods you may be eating on a daily basis could be the cause of your digestive upset? Foods sensitivities trigger the body to produce excessive inflammation which can manifest as digestive symptoms such as bloating, gas, abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea. We offer food allergy and sensitivity testing to give you an in depth look at which foods may be triggering your digestive symptoms. IgG testing is very useful in identifying delayed food sensitivities and inflammatory foods that are difficult to pinpoint because symptoms may arise hours to days after the food is ingested. Elimination of these trigger foods can be the solution to eliminating your digestive symptoms as well as many other health issues.  Click here to learn more.
