Digesting the Universe: Chinese Medicine & Digestive Health
If you're having digestive issues, your stomach may not be the problem. 

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) focuses on keeping your whole body balanced. Your liver, gall bladder, kidneys, heart, even your emotional state comes into play. Everything is inter-connected.

As Nan Lu, OMD, says, "The body never lies. The symptoms are the message; so don't shoot the messenger." Body, mind and spirit all work together. You have to look deeper than just the symptoms.

Listen in as Lu joins host Lisa Davis to explain how digestive issues are related to the rest of the body, as well as ways you can start to address your symptoms.
