I have many friends, family, and even patients who are surprised to hear that
acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can be effective at treating digestive
disorders like IBS, or migraine headaches, or fibromyalgia, or wide variety of other
illnesses that are treated every day.  Some people are surprised to learn the
majority of my clients are treated for internal medicine related ailments.  Most are
familiar with acupuncture being effective for pain and other orthopedic related
problems. What many people do not know is that Oriental medicine is effective in
addressing a wide variety of internal medicine disorders including gastrointestinal,
gynecological, respiratory, immunological, neurological, and mental emotional
disorders among many, many other ailments.
