Acupuncture for fertility and pregnancy
I hope this finds you happy, healthy and enjoying these spring days! Spring has me thinking about mothers, babies, fertility, and growth!
Are you planning pregnancy, struggling with fertility issues or do you know someone who is? Acupuncture can help through balancing the flow of energy and circulation in the body and help managing stress. It does this with little to no risk. Acupuncture has been around for more than 5,000 years. Western science is now becoming aware of the benefits as studies confirm what Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and recipients have known for many centuries. This info is from a post from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine.
Acupuncture... has rapidly grown in acceptance by the general public and practice among therapists today. Not only is acupuncture valued for stress-relieving and relaxing benefits, but also as a component of fertility treatments.
When used in conjunction with Western fertility treatments, acupuncture increases conception rates by 26%. A recent study from Tel Aviv University reports, ““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.” For the 4.5 million couples experiencing infertility each year, acupuncture may be just what the doctor ordered.
