What is Digestive wellness?
Our capacity to experience hunger, efficiently digest consumed food, and effortlessly eliminate waste without encountering stagnation symptoms like constipation, bloating or reflux are key indicators of digestive wellness. A healthy digestive system allows us to extract nourishment from our food without experiencing discomfort. A well digestive system is the foundation of our health and it plays a pivotal role in maintaining our well-being.
What is the traditional view of Digestion?
In the traditional perspective, an efficient digestion brings yang ( warmth) qi and Yin ( the fluids) qi to our body. When this system operates sluggishly, it can give rise to various deficiencies and excesses that manifest in diverse ways throughout our bodies. Interestingly, symptoms that may initially appear unrelated to digestion can often find resolution when the digestive process is addressed and improved. The digestive system, therefore, functions as a crucial axis in the holistic practice of medicine.
