Improve Pregnancy Rates By Helping Prepare & Prime The Body For Conception With Acupuncture
Medical Professionals Agree Acupuncture Improves Fertility
Dr. Jamie Grifo, the Program Director of the NYU Fertility Center and Director of the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology at the NYU School of Medicine, was quoted in US News & World Report Health saying, "It's one non-traditional modality to help manage the stress of infertility, and it does improve pregnancy rates and quality of life in some people." Dr. Lisa Lilienfield, a family practice and pain management specialist at a Kaplan Center for Integrative Medicine was also quoted saying, ""It may not be the only thing that is done in isolation to treat infertility, but it helps get the body primed and maximizes the potential effects of fertility treatments."
How Does Acupuncture Increase Pregnancy Rates?
Acupuncture can improve pregnancy rates by boosting fertility in both men and women for many reasons. Perhaps considered one of its biggest roles is that acupuncture causes the release of hormones in the brain that have a direct relationship with controlling the actions of the ovaries, adrenal glands, testes and other organs involved in reproduction. In the US News & World Report Dr. Lisa Lilienfield also mentioned the important point, " that acupuncture can help increase a woman's fertility by improving blood flow to the ovaries and uterus. This improved blood flow can help thicken the lining of the uterus, increasing the chances of conception."
Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture addresses the entire person, not just their reproductive organs. Your body is designed to conceive and carry out a full term birth as part of a natural, balanced and perfect response. When the balance is not there, your body knows not to conceive. Just suppose for a moment that our temporary inability to reproduce is also a part of our perfect response. It may be your poor diet, chaotic lifestyle, stressful job, ill-suited relationship, or your whole outer surroundings, which are putting your flawless physiology into a natural state of adaptation.
