Soothe Your Gut: Dr. Kihyon Sohn’s Traditional Asian Medicine Approach to IBS Relief in Beaverton, Oregon
Acupuncture for IBS Relief: Restoring Balance in the Body
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) can be a frustrating and debilitating condition, affecting millions of people worldwide. While conventional treatments offer some relief, many individuals seek alternative approaches like Traditional Asian Medicine (TAM) for managing their symptoms.
In Beaverton, Oregon, Dr. Kihyon Sohn, a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist, utilizes TAM principles to address IBS effectively. Acupuncture, a cornerstone of TAM, involves the insertion of fine needles at specific points on the body to stimulate energy flow (qi).
“In TAM, we believe IBS arises from imbalances in the digestive system and overall energy flow,” explains Dr. Sohn. “Acupuncture helps regulate these imbalances, promoting gut motility, reducing inflammation, and alleviating pain.”
“After years of struggling with IBS, I was skeptical about acupuncture. But Dr. Sohn’s approach was so comprehensive, and I noticed a significant improvement within a few sessions. My bloating and cramping lessened, and I felt more in control of my digestion.” – David K., Beaverton, OR
Traditional Asian Herbal Remedies for Gut Health
Dr. Sohn’s TAM approach goes beyond acupuncture, incorporating herbal remedies tailored to each patient’s needs. Traditional Asian herbs, renowned for their therapeutic properties, can address various IBS symptoms, including:
- Digestive discomfort: Herbs like ginger, cinnamon, and licorice root can aid digestion, soothe inflammation, and relieve nausea.
- Diarrhea or constipation: Dr. Sohn may recommend herbs like ginseng or Rehmannia to regulate bowel movements depending on the individual’s needs.
- Stress and anxiety: TAM recognizes the gut-brain connection, and herbs like Schisandra berry and magnolia bark can help manage stress and anxiety, often associated with IBS flares.
“Dr. Sohn prescribed a personalized herbal formula alongside my acupuncture sessions. I was amazed at how it calmed my digestive system and reduced my anxiety. Now, I’m able to manage my IBS without relying solely on medication.” – Michael L., Portland, OR
Combining TAM with Lifestyle Modifications for Optimal Results
Dr. Sohn emphasizes the importance of lifestyle modifications alongside TAM treatments for optimal IBS relief. He recommends dietary adjustments, stress management techniques, and adequate sleep to support gut health and well-being.
“By addressing the root cause of IBS through TAM and adopting healthy lifestyle choices, individuals can experience lasting relief and regain control of their gut health,” says Dr. Sohn.
