Traditionally, acupuncturists and herbalists in China have been deeply pondered and constructed preventative strategies for guiding and understanding the health of both men and women. Their goal was not just to achieve long and happy, productive lives, but also to create strong and healthy families. From the royal family to the humblest farmer, big healthy families were the keystone of a strong civilization.
Chinese medicine believes that without proper internal balance, mothers and fathers can’t provide what we call their “essence” to their offspring. This essence is considered one of the three “treasures” that belong to each human, and therefore must be nourished and guarded wisely. Acupuncture for infertility aims to strengthen and protect this vital essence in the event that patients are having trouble conceiving, or habitually miscarrying. Using acupuncture for infertility is a great adjunct therapy to add to any treatment strategy, because it is non-invasive and has proven benefits.
For those trying to conceive (and opting to use IUI or IVF), Advanced Holistic Center offers the proven power of acupuncture to increase the success rate of conception strategies by up to 42%. For infertility cases, we often recommend getting regular treatments over the course of the conception and pregnancy process. However, only receiving pre- and post-transfer acupuncture treatments can provide impressive results as well. When indicated, we also recommend treating the male partner’s infertility issues. It has been shown that sperm motility, morphology, and count can be improved with acupuncture treatments.
Research shows that each year an estimate of 4.5 million individuals are unable to conceive. This high rate of infertility results from many health or lifestyle conditions. Different folks rely on westernized treatment to cure this ailment. However, it is proving to be short on cure. Luckily, modern medicine is embracing acupuncture in the treatment of infertility among men and women. You stand a 26 percent increase in your conception rate if you add acupuncture to your modern fertility treatment. When you combine Traditional Chinese Medication (TCM) and Intrauterine insemination (IUI) research shows that 65.5 percent of individuals are able to conceive. This estimate is according to a recent study done by Tel Aviv University.
From a TCM perspective, the aim of acupuncture is not just to get pregnant but also sustain pregnancy throughout the period for delivery of a happy, healthy baby. This is according to Deb Davies an acupuncture practitioner at Herbin Acupuncture and Wellness located in San Diego. Further research show acupuncture boosts fertility rate by increasing the flow of blood in the reproductive system, reducing stress levels, and creating a balance in the endocrine system. Women who have this ancient treatment have a better flow of blood in their uterus and ovaries. As a result, their womb has a greater chance to carry a fertilized egg to term.
An acupuncture treatment consists of the careful insertion of sterilized disposable needles at strategic pressure points on the surface of the skin. This treatment aims at realigning the energy flow lost through unhealthy habits that resulting to ailments. According to this traditional Chinese medicine, the body has 14 pathways also known as meridians that connect with over 2000 acupuncture points. These meridians conduct energy or bet yet qi between the internal organs and the skin. The qi is termed responsible for balancing physical, spiritual, mental and emotional well-being of an individual. An interruption in the flow of energy may be a cause of lack to conceive among couples.
Fertility acupuncture in New York City treatment focuses on stress removal on both men and women patients. Stress triggers the brain to release the hormone cortisol. This hormone interferes with the neurochemical balance in the brain resulting in a change in hormonal levels. With a change in hormone levels, the pituitary balance a key role player in reproductive cycle is altered. For this reason, both men and women who are stressed are unable to conceive. With the help of acupuncture, women are not only able to conceive but are relieved from nausea, morning sickness, backaches, insomnia and many more pregnancy-related conditions.
With an imbalance between the pituitary, hypothalamus, and reproductive glands you may have a hard time getting pregnant when stressed. While under stress, your fallopian tube and uterus may also develop spasms which block the fertilized egg from freely moving and attaching in your uterus. Stress in men affects their motility and sperm count resulting to impotence. Undergoing an acupuncture treatment together with herbal treatment, you can reverse the effects of cortisol hormone on your reproductive system.
Cortisol hormone may not be the only cause of Hormonal imbalance. Ovulation disorders that interrupt the levels of hormones such as progesterone also contribute to infertility associated with hormone imbalance. The disorder prevents the ovum from being fertilized and implanted in the uterus due to lack of enough progesterone.
Unlike women, men suffering from infertility have limited treatment options. The fertility drugs that trigger ovulation in women may not work the same on men. In fact, such drugs are not approved by FDA. The best option is herbal infertility treatments such as acupuncture that research shows to reverse infertility effects.
Modern fertility medicines have a 20 to 60 percent of increasing your fertility rate. Unfortunately, there are a couple of side effects you stand to experience. Some of these side effects include bloating, weight gain, abdominal tenderness, and nausea. Further research shows that some westernized treatment may cause breast cancer on patients who rely heavily on them.
Acupuncture infertility treatment, on the other hand, has little to no side effects. Regarding performance, it is proven to be quite effective on individuals that use it especially while undergoing In vitro fertilization (IVF). Acupuncture does this by balancing the endocrine system hormones through stimulation of hypothalamus in both men and women.
