Fertility Success Rates Increased Naturally with Acupuncture!

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is a system of medicine with over 3,000

years of history in offering solutions to a variety of health conditions,

including fertility and successful pregnancy.  It can be used by itself as a

natural form of fertility treatment or in combination with western fertility

treatments such as IUI (intrauterine insemination) or IVF (in vitro

fertilization) to increase conception rates.  According to a recent study by Tel

Aviv University, "When combining IUI with Traditional Chinese Medicine,

65.5 percent of the test group were able to conceive, compared with 39.4

percent of the control group, which received no herbal or acupuncture

therapy" (http://www2.tau.ac.il/news/engnew.asp?num_new=2092)  That

is a 26 percent increase in conception rates for patients who used

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine compared to those who did not. 

So how does this work?

According to Diana Iong, board-certified, licensed, Acupuncturist and

herbalist specializing in fertility health at Sonie Clinic, in San Jose, CA,

"Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can increase fertility by stimulating the

body to release endorphins, which calms the stress response, regulating

ovulation and menstruation, and treating thyroid imbalances, endometriosis,

polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and other conditions which may lead to

difficulties conceiving and maintaining healthy pregnancies.

This is done with the insertion of hair-fine needles into specific areas of the body to

reduce the release of stress hormones, increase blood flow to the uterus,

regulate hormonal systems which affect fertility and prevent miscarriage. "Acupuncture and

Chinese herbal treatments are customized to the individual patients condition to increase

pregnancy success rates naturally as well as improve the health of the mother and her baby

during pregnancy and beyond." says Iong.

If you are interested in Acupuncture treatments for fertility, it is best to first

consult with your medical doctor to find out what the underlying health

issues may be, and to discuss the best treatment options.  It is also important

to find a board-certified, licensed acupuncturist who is a fertility specialist to

work with you and your doctor to achieve your fertility goals.
