Acupuncture, frequently paired with herbal medicine, has been used for thousands of years to treat infertility. Proved by numerous scientific studies, acupuncture can facilitate fertility by relieving stress, improving blood circulation to the ovaries and uterus, balancing hormones, and preparing an optimal environment for the embryo to be nourished and carried to term.
Acupuncture can increase conception rate by 26%, when it is used as complementary with Western fertility treatments. A recent study from Tel Aviv University says, ““When combining IUI with TCM treatments, 65.5 percent of the test group were able to conceive, compared with 39.4 percent of the control group, who received no herbal or acupuncture therapy.” An individual could benefit from acupuncture and herbs because of the potential effect of improved ovarian and follicular function. Additionally, acupuncture can increase blood flow to the endometrium, helping to facilitate a thick, rich lining. The advantages of acupuncture infertility treatment are almost no side effects while performing the same function as the drugs do.
For couples with infertility issues, stress is a significant obstacle on their way to succeed in fertility. Acupuncture is known to be the most effective approach for stress management.
For over 4 million couples suffering infertility each year, acupuncture is the must-be remedy.
