What hinders fertility and how acupuncture can help

Stress levels

Studies have shown that women with high stress levels are up to 93% less likely to conceive. Stress not only reduces blood flow to your reproductive organs, but it can also inhibit communication between your brain, pituitary and ovaries, creating a hormonal disconnect throughout your endocrine system.

Acupuncture can help soothe your nervous system by releasing endorphins, thereby reversing the effects of stress and regulating hormones.

Hormonal imbalances

Acupuncture helps to regulate hormonal imbalances by starting at the source: the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian-axis (HPOA), which is responsible for releasing the right hormones from your endocrine system in the appropriate amounts. Women faced with luteal phase defects, high FSH levels, low estrogen levels or polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) especially benefit from this treatment.

Male-Factor Infertility

Men who are disadvantaged from reduced sperm count, or lack of sperm production can benefit from Traditional Chinese Medicine. Motility (how they swim), morphology (how they look) and amount (how many) can all gain from acupuncture, and in particular from herbal remedies and proper supplementation. By remedying the underlying imbalances and increasing blood flow, acupuncture may improve sperm count, motility and morphology after only a few months.
