Acupuncture for Women’s Health & Fertility
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine has been used for thousands of years to balance the hormonal system. Believe it or not, the reproductive system influences and is influenced by other aspects of your body. This is why often times your menstrual cycle is affected by changes in your emotional and physical health. When your Qi is freely flowing, your body is able to function in a healthy way.
Acupuncture can address imbalances or symptoms in your system to improve general health and promote balance. It can also be used to reduce stress, increase blood flow to the reproductive organs, and help normalize ovulation, all of which can help women conceive. Research has found acupuncture may increase fertility. One scientific review of 23 studies found that acupuncture improved the chances of conceiving in women undergoing IVF treatments. Another study saw pregnancy rates double in women who worked with a TCM practitioner. It comes as no surprise then that The American Society of Reproductive Medicine’s Fertility & Sterility Journal has recognized the incredible power and potential of acupuncture to help women get pregnant.
What Are the Benefits of Trying Acupuncture for Fertility?
Acupuncture has been shown to help reduce depression, which can be a problem for women struggling with infertility. It can also decrease stress and anxiety that can contribute to fertility problems. What's more, high levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) have been shown to increase the risk of miscarriage in women once they become pregnant.
Acupuncture and herbal treatments can be used alone or with Western medical techniques to enhance effectiveness. Because acupuncture improves your overall health, pregnancy becomes easier to achieve, miscarriages may be reduced, and postpartum recuperation is faster so that you feel better and have more energy.
