Acupuncture Orlando for Successful Fertilization

without comments

For those couples who have tried every means to conceive and have failed, acupuncture Orlando may just be the treatment you are looking for.  Acupuncture surprisingly is very helpful in solving fertility problems in both male and female.  It is now one of the more popular treatment alternatives for many couples with fertility problems in achieving pregnancy.

Acupuncture in the treatment of infertility works for both sexes although obviously, the problem for men is fundamentally different from women although both strive for the same goal of fertilization and pregnancy.  An example would be some men wanting to have a larger sperm count to increase the chances of fertilization while some women want to have a regular menstrual cycle to boost the chances for fertilization.  More often than not hormonal imbalances, diseases and pollution get in the way of their dreams.  Acupuncture can effectively help them overcome their problems and the factors that block their dream of being parents.

For a majority of acupuncture treatments for infertility, the use of Chinese herbal medicine is included and taken in between sessions of acupuncture therapy.  However, if one is on an in vitro fertilization (IVF) program or is taking fertility drugs, it is not advisable to take herbs.  Herbal medicine might negate the efficacy of the fertility medicines and can also neutralize the positive effects of IVF.  Consulting with a physician who looks after your fertility problem before embarking on an herbal remedy is recommended to avoid unnecessary complications.

The process of acupuncture is about inserting very thin needles just beneath the skin at sites in the body called acupoints.  The needles should not cause pain; at worse, a slight sensation is felt during needling.  Mainstream medicine knows little about how acupuncture works.  This is because of the fundamental difference in how mainstream medicine and acupuncture views human health and how the human body works. Acupuncture believes that energy flowing in the body is what gives the body good health, growth, life and the ability to reproduce.  The energy flows in channels called meridians.  Any blockages in the meridians usually due to stress causes energy imbalance in the body which leads to many kinds illnesses.

Infertility problems such as low sperm count, poor sperm quality and motility, erectile dysfunction, polycystic ovary syndrome, endometriosis, luteal phase defect, anovulation, irregular menstruation, poor egg quality and egg and sperm incompatibility among others (as long as the infertility problem is not based on a structural defect) can ably be treated with acupuncture.  As mentioned before, stress and extreme negative emotions play an important role in infertility.  Removing stress and having a tranquil and relaxed mind are basic positive steps one needs to do to effectively treat infertility.  Acupuncture has that ability of removing stress from the mind and body and calming relaxing a person removing any extreme emotions the person might have.
