Infertility and Oriental Medicine

 Oriental medicine has been used to treat infertility among men and women for centuries.  According to Oriental Medicine theory, acupuncture breaks up the stagnation the body has accumulated due to years of poor diet and insufficient exercise.  As a result, toxicity in the body reach critical levels, which in turn limits the absorption of nutrients.  A nutrient deficient body in turn has difficulty producing healthy sperm or eggs.  Conversely, in order to produce healthy eggs and sperm, we first must decrease or eliminate toxicity in the body, and then supply the body with nutrients.

    Studies have shown that acupuncture increases fertility among women and men.  Acupuncture:

  • Increases blood flow to the uterus to promote implantation,
  • Improves ovarian function, which may help produce better quality eggs and a larger number of follicles,
  • Reduces side effects of drugs used in artificial reproductive technology procedures,
  • Decreases uterine contractions intended to encourage implantation and to prevent early miscarriage,
  • Reduces stress hormones and anxiety, and
  • Strengthens the immune system and supports general health to promote a healthy pregnancy and baby.
