Acupuncture for Infertility Treatment

The Alternative Option Acupuncture as a branch of alternative medicine has been an accepted practice for some time now here in the U. S. and is certainly gaining in popularity. The origins of this ancient Chinese medical technique are lost in the mists of time and extend way back into antiquity. Put simply, acupuncture makes use of very fine needles to unblock a sufferer's "Chi" (or life-energy), and aims to restore equilibrium and balance in our bodies. The application of acupuncture in the healing process is extensive and covers every conceivable, and we use this word deliberately, form of medical malfunction, including using acupuncture for infertility. While many mainstream medical professionals remain skeptical, fact is that acupuncture infertility treatment has been used very successfully by many couples keen to have children but encountering difficulties. Yes, infertility acupuncture really works.

How do infertility and acupuncture work together?

The first and important point to note about acupuncture infertility treatment is that it can work for either gender, so it can be successfully used to treat problems that could be affecting either partner in a particular relationship. First though, a proper acupuncture infertility evaluation has to be conducted before we can even begin to consider the use of acupuncture for infertility. Once we identify that a patient's condition is going to respond well to acupuncture infertility treatment then the painless treatment can commence. Unblocking the flow of Chi will normally be carried out by an infertility acupuncturist, a relatively new role to us here in the United States. After Chi treatment, the general health of the patient should improve and this turnaround should result in a higher likelihood of conception. Acupuncture infertility treatment has been proven to balance the hormones, which in turn increases the prospect of ovulation in females while also improving the production of healthy sperm in males. Infertility acupuncture also helps to stop the body from producing too many stress hormones which are thought to be directly linked to a decrease in the chances of conception. Further, acupuncture infertility treatment is known to augment the delivery of blood to the reproductive organs, and is also known to help in curing diseases causing fertility problems - fibrosis or polycystic ovarian syndrome for example.

When should infertility and acupuncture treatment commence?

Similar to physical therapy, acupuncture for infertility is regarded as a process-oriented method of medical intervention. Infertility acupuncture is commonly started three to four months before insemination, donor-egg transfer or IVF fertilization. Research by the American Pregnancy Association indicates that this period of acupuncture infertility treatment would seem to have the optimal therapeutic effect. The good news is that down at the Bodnar Chiropractic Center in Alexandria, VA, we are pleased to afford you the opportunity of availing of some of the most progressive infertility and acupuncture services available in North Virginia. Why not make an appointment today and have a face to face with our exceptionally well-qualified and experienced infertility acupuncturist.

Is using an Infertility Acupuncturist safe?

When performed by a trained infertility acupuncturist, acupuncture for infertility treatment is considered safe. But, according to the American Pregnancy Association acupuncture performed on certain points, and any point on the lower abdomen is not recommended during pregnancy, or suspected pregnancy. It is therefore important to consult with a certified infertility acupuncturist who has a proven track record working with infertility acupuncture patients.

In conclusion

There is much to be said in favor of the acupuncture infertility approach, provided a thorough evaluation has been conducted by a well-qualified and experienced infertility acupuncturist before proceeding to the acupuncture infertility therapy. We have just such an expert at our offices and he is waiting and eager to meet with you to discuss the benefits and risks of infertility and acupuncture.
