Digestive Problems: Treating the cause, not just the symptoms.
Unfortunately too many products on the market these days only deliver temporary relief from digestive symptoms, rather than real and lasting solutions. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) addresses the underlying organ systems to help restore digestive health naturally and longer term.
Restoring internal balance is a constant goal in TCM. Qi (pronounced “chee”) is a form of energy or life force that flows through the body along channels called meridians. Imbalances or disruptions to this flow of Qi are believed to be responsible for many conditions or diseases.
TCM also looks at the organs and their functions in energetic terms, rather than in the purely physical way that Western medicine does. For example, the Stomach organ-meridian governs digestive Qi, which stimulates the digestive process. The Spleen and Liver organ-meridian systems are also involved in healthy digestion.
These organ-meridian systems function when there are no imbalances or disruptions to the flow of Qi. But if you’re suffering with indigestion and reflux, constipation, bloating, flatulence, poor appetite or belching, the underlying issue is the same – you need to restore correct function to your Stomach, Spleen and Liver.
The most effective way to overcome digestive weakness is with a comprehensive digestive tonic formula using tried and tested TCM herbs. Depending on the nature and severity of the problem, a digestive tonic formula can be enhanced with lifestyle modifications, and the qualified staff at Go Vita can help you to discern what will work for you.
Combine these tips with a good liver tonic to help normalise the liver and gallbladder’s influence on healthy Stomach-Spleen function and improve fat digestion.
Consider the addition of an advanced multi vitamin and mineral formula to your digestive health regime. No doubt we are all aware of the nutritional limitations associated with modern day eating – even if we avoid processed foods and stick with a fresh and wholegrain diet, our soils are often so depleted of nutrients and our produce stored for so long that the amount of nutrition, or Qi, left in what we do eat is questionable. It makes sense to combine better digestion with better nutrition.
By combining natural medicines like this and looking at your habits you can create a tailor made solution specific to your own good health needs.
