Acupuncture fertility specialists achieve success over and over again. Indeed, more and more traditional medical professionals have opened their minds to the benefits of fertility and acupuncture treatment and realize that both forms of medicine, working together, can achieve amazing results for people.
Acupuncture has been practiced in Eastern medicine for thousands of years and takes a holistic approach to improving health. The fundamental basis of Acupuncture is the theory that vital energy, known as “qi,” pronounced “chee”, flows through the body along certain pathways. During acupuncture treatment, small, fine, sterile needles are inserted just beneath the surface of the skin to regulate the flow of “qi” and bring the body back into harmony and balance.
Infertility acupuncture treatment is especially suitable for women who have a functional, rather than structural reason for their difficulty in conceiving. Issues such as hormonal problems, irregular menstruation, immune disorders, age related issues, and amenorrhoea all fall under the category of functional infertility.
Fertility-focused acupuncture treatment can bring the following benefits: more regular menstrual cycles, improved flow of blood to the reproductive organs, better hormone balance level, improvement to the lining of the uterus and a better quality of eggs released.
Acupuncture is very powerful when combined with treatments such as IVF. Many women find IVF quite an emotional and physical roller-coaster, and acupuncture is excellent for reducing the associated stress, and helps the body cope better with the side-effects of any associated medication, helping to purify the body of any pharmaceutical toxins. This greatly improves the likelihood of the IVF treatment being successful.
Acupuncture fertility treatments have a good rate of success at clinics, often only after just a few treatments. Original research has shown that just two acupuncture treatments administered immediately before and after the IVF transfer almost doubles a woman’s chances of conception.
