Acupuncture’s Success with Infertility
The treatment of infertility with acupuncture dates back 2,000 years. This ancient time -tested technique improves fertility rates, increases follical formation, improves uterine lining formation, and even improves the genetic material in the egg. For these reasons, the rate of miscarriage also goes down with treatment. Acupuncture is used to correct the menstrual cycle, and then to help the optimal hormone levels for each phase of the pregnancy cycle. Research has shown that acupuncture increases blood flow to the uterus, and improves ovum implanting there. It reduces stress, anxiety, and those hormones that are secreted during stress that reduce fertility. Acupuncture has also been shown to positively affect the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, which plays a key role in fertility. In acupuncture language, the various meridians and point sites that benefit the "kidney" energetics, the "spleen" energetics, and the "liver" energetics are treated. Most important, the center line on the front of the body - the "ren mo" (called the creation vessel) is treated every time. It governs microscopic issues as well, therefore deals with many issues.
