Yellow-orange is the color of the Earth element, as as we look around at the ripening pumpkins and winter squash, corn and grains we get some idea why. Eating yellow/orange food like squash, sweet potatoes and millet is a great way to support the digestion. When digestion is weak all other organ systems are effected, so now is a wonderful time to focus on digestive health.
If experiencing problems in this area, such as
- weight gain or loss
- bloating or gas
- difficulty digestion
- no appetite or too much appetite
- constipation or loose stools
- stomach ache
- heart burn
- slow digestion
In fact, acupuncture alone can do wonders for all kinds of digestive problems; this is one of the things we've had great success with here at the Birch Center. Points on the stomach and spleen meridians (on the legs, feet and abdomen) help regulate, relax and nourish the digestion. Moxa can be applied to warm and strengthen the meridians if necessary, and the relaxing effect of a balancing acupuncture treatment is without compare.
Now is an excellent time for an acupuncture tune up or to begin treatments. Please give us a call today to schedule your appointment: (412) 381-0116.
