HOW ACUPUNCTURE HELPS
Traditional Chinese Medicine has been used to treat fertility for thousands of years through acupuncture, Chinese herbs, dietary therapy, supplements and dietary modifications. TCM treats infertility by getting to the root problem.
Many reproductive health issues including infertility can be treated effectively with acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Recent medical research has shown the effectiveness of this ancient healing system for:
- Reducing anxiety and stress
- Balancing hormones
- Regulating the menstrual cycle and ovulation
- Improving pregnancy rates in conjunction with IVF
- Improving sperm parameters
- Increasing sexual function
Anyone can potentially benefit from acupuncture and herbs because of its impending effects to improve a female’s ovarian and follicular functions. Moreover, acupuncture increases blood flow to the endometrium, which then contributes to the creation of a strong, dense, and rich lining. Some believe that acupuncture works by helping women stay more relaxed through stressful fertility treatments. In particular, studies have shown that acupuncture definitely increases the rate of pregnancy in women undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Luckily, there are only nominal risks. The risk of miscarriage may increase if acupuncture points are used incorrectly throughout a woman’s pregnancy. These risks are only evident if one seeks treatment from someone who is not fully trained nor a certified practitioner. Acupuncture is
for the most part safe regardless of a person’s medical history.
