Digestion Q & A

What is digestion?

Digestion describes the process of food breakdown after you chew and swallow it. Your digestive system includes the following: 

  • Mouth 
  • Esophagus 
  • Stomach 
  • Small intestine 
  • Large intestine 
  • Rectum 

Problems with any of these can cause bothersome symptoms when not addressed. See the Erzhena Acupuncture team at the first sign of a problem.

What are the symptoms of digestion problems?

Digestion issues can cause negative symptoms, including:

  • Vomiting
  • Gas
  • Bloating
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation 
  • Abdominal pain
  • Swelling

Treating your condition naturally may help you avoid medications that cause side effects or needing invasive treatments. 

What are examples of digestive issues?

Digestion issues commonly treated at Erzhena Acupuncture include:

  • Colitis
  • Ulcers
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Gastritis and hyperacidity
  • Abdominal bloating
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Other gastrointestinal (GI) issues
  • Food allergies
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)


IBS is a GI issue that may result from stress, a medical condition, eating certain foods, genetics, anxiety, or depression. It can cause abdominal discomfort, bowel movement changes, unexplained weight loss, diarrhea, vomiting, rectal bleeding, iron-deficiency anemia, or other bothersome symptoms. 

If you develop troublesome symptoms after being diagnosed with one of these gastrointestinal disorders, see the Erzhena Acupuncture specialists for an evaluation. 

Which digestion treatments are right for me?

Based on your condition, symptoms, and treatment preferences, they tailor a program best suited to your goals.

Which holistic digestion solutions are available?

Erzhena Acupuncture offers the following holistic treatments for digestion issues:


The practice provides acupuncture by inserting tiny needles into various body tissues while you rest comfortably. They may manipulate the needles or emit electric pulses into them to optimize digestion, improve circulation, and ease bothersome symptoms. 


Cupping is a natural digestion treatment that promotes healing. It improves blood flow, reduces body toxins, alleviates discomfort, and improves overall wellness.

Gua sha

Gua sha uses a dull, flat tool to scrape your skin in specific areas to increase cell regeneration, healing, and pain reduction. The treatment also eliminates body toxins and maximizes immunity.


Moxibustion burns an herb called mugwort near your skin's surface to stimulate healing and improve overall wellness. It promotes energy flow, improves digestion, maximizes circulation and immunity, and oxygenates body tissues. Moxibustion can also reduce negative symptoms of many digestion concerns.
