Fertility and Acupuncture
Whether you have been trying for three months or three years, with or without a fertility specialists’ help, acupuncture can naturally help boost your fertility and increase your chances of success. With the insertion of tiny sterile needles into acupuncture points located at specific points on the body, the way the body functions can be regulated and the problem that affects fertility can be addressed.
Infertility occurs due to disrupted vital balance and blockages in the Qi energy and Blood circulation flow. When the free flow of the energy is blocked, it can cause deficiency, stagnancy or heat syndrome. Deficiency syndrome is blocking and disrupting the sexual and reproductive function both in men and women. The stagnancy syndrome disables the free flow of the energy and Blood and restricts it from circulation to the tissues in the reproductive organs. The heat syndrome is connected to inflammation processes which have an impact on semen quality and gynaecological infections. All three syndromes can be treated with acupuncture and herbs. When it is known which syndrome to treat, and the problem is solved, the body returns to health and conception may happen naturally. Every patient is unique, and each treatment plan created is based on the patient’s unique challenges.
With such a long history for more than 5,000 years, acupuncture as a treatment for infertility shows great results both in men and women. Acupuncture can be considered as successful treatment in restoring fertility in the patients, by improving the sperm quality and ovaries function and balancing the endocrine system and hormones. With a combination of acupuncture and herbs, it is possible to improve the ovarian and follicular function and increase the blood flow to the endometrium.
Acupuncture is completely safe and can help maintain a healthy mother and baby. Energy and blood flow are important during these months. Acupuncture can also help relieve pregnancy discomforts from associated symptoms, e.g. morning sickness, fatigue, aches and pains, and depression.
