Using Acupuncture with IUI Increases Conception Rates by 26%

Garden Acupuncture explains how using TCM increases your chance of conception by 26% when using IUI.

We are happy to announce that a patient of ours gave birth to a healthy baby girl last week. This patient conceived using a combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and IUI.

TCM has always been known to boost fertility but now there is a current research to that proves it. The recent article from Tel Aviv University shows the chances of conceiving and giving birth to a healthy baby increase dramatically when using a combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and contemporary Western medicine. According to American Friends of Tel Aviv University (, "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." It is the first study measuring the effectiveness of both acupuncture and Chinese herbal formulas when used with IUI.

For some, the road to becoming a parent can be a long one. Using TCM to prepare your body for conception, you are giving yourself the best chance at giving birth to a health baby.

One of our practitioners here at Garden Acupuncture, Alex Goldberg, trained with Dr. Randine Lewis, one of the nation's top fertility specialists and author of the books "The Infertility Cure" and "The Way of the Fertile Soul". He is the only acupuncturist in Brooklyn to have this specialized training.
