Acupuncture is an ancient healing therapy from China which involves the placement of thin needles at specific points on the body. It works very well when it comes to treating pain but can be used to treat a range of other conditions too. But what is not very well known is the fact that this healing therapy can also boost your fertility and help with reproductive issues

An incredible boost to reproductive health

Though it is not as common as other alternative healing therapies, it is incredibly effective when it comes to improving and maintaining reproductive health at all stages, without having to resort to the standard western medical solutions of prescription drugs and surgery. In fact, just 1-2 acupuncture treatments a week can help:
  • balance hormones
  • regulate ovulation and menstrual cycles
  • induce ovulation in women with PCOS
  • increase follicle growth and improve egg quality
  • increase cervical mucus
  • stimulate blood flow to the uterus, thickening the lining
  • carry to term
  • decrease inflammation and pain in women with endometriosis
  • address depression and anxiety, either pre-existing or arising with the fertility process
  • miscarriage recovery

Acupuncture as an adjunct therapy before or during IUI, IVF

If you’ve chosen the IUI or IVF route, acupuncture is the most commonly used adjunct therapy, improving success rates. It is ideal to begin treatments 1 to 3 months before beginning your ART cycle, but you can get started at any point in the process. There are protocols specific to various stages like using electrical stimulation on specific points to stimulate follicle growth or a day-of-embryo transfer protocol to support successful implantation. It’s also a sanity-saving tool for minimizing the harsh side-effects of hormone therapy, which can induce mood swings, digestive disturbances, bloating and swelling, headaches and allergic reactions.

Men stand to gain from it

And let’s not forget about men. In the US and UK, 30 per cent of infertility cases can be attributed to a male factor. Sperm quality, PH, volume, motility and morphology and sexual dysfunction all affect conception rates and embryo viability. Men will need 1-2 treatments a week for 5 weeks to see positive changes.

It helps with emotional upheavals

Other than physical considerations, your emotional state also plays a big role in fertility. Studies show that women who have difficulty conceiving experience as much stress as someone dealing with cancer. Acupuncture is a safe, drug-free way to manage the very real fears, anxieties and stress that can arise from the process, or deal with a pre-existing state of depression or anxiety. It boosts physical health, induces mental peace and fosters a loving heart needed to create the new life that you’re bringing into the world.

What is Ayurveda?

Practiced by the great sages of ancient India, Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of holistic medicine defined as Knowledge of Life (Ayu meaning life and Veda meaning knowledge). It describes the healthy and unhealthy state of life (mind and body) and describes the methods of balancing unhealthy conditions. Ayurveda focuses on the wellness of every person as a whole. Since the constitution differs from person to person, the wellness therapies also differ and are unique to every individual.

What is Naturopathy?

Human beings have remarkable recuperative powers that can heal the body on its own without external chemical or surgical interference, which simply suppresses symptoms but does not heal nor remove the root cause of the disease. Naturopathy seeks to heal the body by promoting its own internal processes. Naturopathy gives importance to internal hygienic conditions using healing therapies such as Dietetics, Hydrotherapy, Mud therapy, Reflexology, and Massage, among others.
