TCM Acupuncture fertility treatment
Acupuncture is both an ancient science and a modern treatment.
In the last twenty years, there has been much progress in treating infertility in the Western world, but it is only recently that more attention has been paid to alternative treatment methods, such as acupuncture.
For thousands of years, Chinese practitioners have used acupuncture as an important element in their treatment of infertility, and it is nowadays increasingly used internationally as a fertility enhancer, supplement to established infertility treatment, IVF treatment and IUI- treatment.
Swedish and German studies have shown that acupuncture has a physiological effect, suggesting that acupuncture can increase the success rate of IVF (the “in vitro” method). The figures from a German trial show an increase from 26.3% to 42.5% in the number of registered pregnancies when IVF treatment is supplemented with acupuncture.
These figures were later confirmed in Denmark.
Acupuncture can optimize fertility treatment by:
· Increasing blood circulation in the uterus and improving the condition of the uterine lining so that the egg can bind more firmly.
· Reducing the side effects of hormone intake (such as headaches, discomfort, etc.)
· Balancing the body and relaxing the uterus
· Strengthening the immune system
· De-stressing the body
