According to a Tel Aviv University Study, there are an estimated 4.5 million couples experiencing infertility each year. When combined with western fertility treatments, acupuncture increases conception rates by 26%. Part of the mechanism that facilitates conception is
the reduction of stress, balancing the endocrine system, and increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs. This way, there is a stronger chance for the egg to be nourished and carried to term. With acupuncture our goal is not only to get you pregnant, but to keep you pregnant and have a healthy baby.
Now-a-days, stress is on top of the list for infertility, for both men and women. When we are under stress, the hormone cortisol is released in the brain. This interferes with the balance of the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland, which both play a big role in the reproductive cycle. Fertility drugs are created to stimulate the hypothalamus to effectively balance the endocrine system. Unfortunately, they have undesired side effects such as bloating, fluid retention, weight gain, and nausea. Acupuncture has been found to complete the same function as the drugs, but without the unfavorable side effects. We can also work with the fertility drugs to increase fertility yet lessen the side effects of the drugs.
On your journey of getting pregnant and starting a family, acupuncture also helps with morning sickness, low back pain, anxiety, fatigue, mood swings, insomnia, breast milk production, breached baby, postpartum depression and many others.
