Treat Fertility Problems with Acupuncture  Orlando

without comments

Acupuncture  Orlando for infertility is growing in popularity in the US for the simple reason that it works.  Acupuncture is a form of treatment where reed-thin needles are inserted in specific parts of the body.  These needles work threefold:  First, they remove the blockages in the networks where vital energy, called chi flow freely throughout the body. These blockages cause imbalance, illness and poor health in the body.  Chi is the force the keeps the body healthy and makes it grow.  Second, acupuncture heightens the body’s energy level, enhancing body metabolism, promoting good blood flow and vitalizing the body’s organs and tissues allowing them to function optimally.  Third, acupuncture stimulates the brain to release endorphins and other “feel-good” chemicals to allow the body to relax and heal itself and cure the psychological and emotional problems of the individual.

Chi flows through networks called meridians.  These are intangible series of pathways that functions just like the body’s nervous and circulatory systems.  Western medicine denies that chi or the meridian systems exist because they can not be empirically proven by means of Western technology.  Acupuncture works for female infertility by regulating hormone production and assisting in the maturation of the eggs.  It regulates the secretion of hormones so that hormones that make pregnancy difficult, is normalized making conception more likely to succeed.  Symptoms associated with hormonal infertility can be treated with acupuncture.  Menstrual irregularities can also be treated with acupuncture even such serious cases such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or anovulation.

Acupuncture decreases PMS symptoms, such as anxiety, stress, and frustrations related to repeated unsuccessful conceptions.  As mentioned, acupuncture enhances blood flow, which benefits the womb, helping to build endometrium or uterine lining for implantation. Acupuncture reinforces the lining of the uterine walls, which minimizes the occurrence of miscarriages.  For male infertility, acupuncture has proven to cure sperm defects, increase sperm count and improve sperm quality.

Acupuncture has proven to be a good complementary modality to some mainstream assisted reproductive modalities. Acupuncture has become a very crucial part of these treatments especially for stressful invasive procedures such as In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).  Pre IVF procedures entail individuals to be oriented to acupuncture treatment.  Acupuncture helps the patient relax during the stressful phase of IVF.

A healthy psychological and emotional state is crucial for women who want to get pregnant since stressful and traumatic experiences can directly affect hormonal balance.  Acupuncture’s benefit on the psychological and emotional stability of the individual can assist in the hormonal balance, ovulation, egg maturation, and the reduction of anxiety and stress of the individual.  Acupuncture also assists women using fertility medications to reduce side effects and filter out the toxins associated with pharmaceutical drugs, giving the body a very healthy state to improve the odds of successful conception through assisted reproductive procedures.
