Digestion

Currently Providing Virtual Office Visits

What a wild ride COVID-19 has and will be! I want to take a minute to thank each and every one of you for supporting my practice and trusting me with your health concerns, I appreciate you greatly.  I’ve decided to switch from practicing in the clinic to providing online consults via phone/Zoom for at least two weeks.  Typically acupuncturists encourage patients to come in when sick since acupuncture and Chinese herbs can often stop or lessen severity of seasonal illnesses, however due to the fact that COVID-19 is highly contagious I feel the best way to serve my patients and the community right now is virtually.

The tele-medicine sessions are for new and existing patients for issues like immunity, asthma, anxiety, insomnia, digestion, allergies, fertility, and women’s health.  Herbs/supplements/essential will be drop shipped or delivered to your home as well as ear seeds and magnets to place on acupuncture points, you will be guided on where/how to place them. Diet, exercise, and lifestyle recommendations will also be included with the tele-session.

Click Here to schedule a consult. Please email me if you would like my immunity supplement guide, discount codes are included, you do no need to schedule an appointment for this. Wishing you all the best, be safe and please follow the CDC guideline’s, we will get through this together. Sincerely, Sandra McKay-Billion L. Ac.

For example, it wasn’t until recently, the last 10 years or so, that modern medicine confirmed our gastrointestinal tract is our second brain. This discovery is drastically changing the way the body and its many functions are viewed, because everything we put in our mouths can potentially have life-altering effects on the mind, as well as the body.  continue reading »

Herbal Tonics for Digestion

Digestive disorders can be simple like flatulence or gas, or they can be much more serious, such as Crohn’s disease. But regardless of the severity of the disease, there is no doubt digestive disorders affect far more people than they should, especially in the United States. A recent survey reports nearly 74 percent of all Americans are living with digestive issues. Most people don’t report it to their doctors either, because they assume it is normal to have gas, bloating or abdominal pain. But these symptoms can be indicators of much more serious underlying problems. continue reading »
