In our previous blog post, we looked at how acupuncture can help alleviate back pain. But the benefits of this holistic treatment don’t end there. According to the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, acupuncture increases conception rates by 26 percent. We will explain how acupuncture is so impactful with fertility in this post.
By reducing stress, increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs, and balancing the endocrine system, acupuncture can be a game-changer for women struggling to become pregnant. Let’s dive into each of these in greater detail.
Many couples don’t realize that stress levels play a key factor in the fertility of both women and men. Because stress can disrupt the pituitary balance that’s so key to the reproductive cycle, it can essentially prevent a woman from ovulating entirely, leading to infertility. Stress may even create spasms in the fallopian tubes and uterus, which could interfere with a fertilized egg. Men, on the other hand, see altered sperm counts, motility, and impotence when under stress. Acupuncture fertility treatment counters the effect of stress by releasing endorphins in the brain.
Increases Blood Flow
It’s important to know that these treatments enable better flow to the uterus, which creates a stronger chance for an egg to be nourished and carried to term.
Balances the Endocrine System
Take a moment to consider that there are well over 2,000 acupuncture points on the human body that connect with 14 pathways, called meridians. These meridians conduct Qi (energy) between the body’s surface and internal organs. Moreover, qi is responsible for regulating spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical balance. When qi is at all disrupted, pain or disease can take hold. By keeping Qi unblocked, a couple’s chance of conceiving increases.
Now we can explain a bit more about how acupuncture can balance the endocrine system. As opposed to drugs which come with nasty side effects, acupuncture fertility treatment stimulates the hypothalamus to balance the endocrine system and its hormones. Best of all, this natural treatment gets to the root of the cause of both male and female infertility.
