Constipation is an all too common issue causing discomfort, pain, frustration, and stress. (1) Digestion is central to health and wellbeing.
In acupuncture healthy digestion is central to overall health. We obtain nutrients and energy, the Qi of the food, for all of our body’s activities through digestion. In acupuncture terms, the stomach’s digestive Qi extracts energy from food in order to make Qi for the heart, brain, muscles, and other organs to function properly.
