Research shows that acupuncture can increase the body’s ability to:
- Cope with stress
- Increase the blood flow to the ovaries and uterus
- Bring hormones into homeostasis
Thereby increasing the ability to conceive.
A landmark German study that combined acupuncture with IVF, was published in 2002 in the medical journal, Fertility and Sterility. This study garnered the attention of both acupuncturists and allopathic doctors.
Pre and Post transfer acupuncture improved IVF success rates by 62%.
Continued pregnancy rates improved.
Live birth rates improved.
If you’d like to read more about the acupuncture protocol and the results obtained with the 160 patients, you can view the published study by Wolfgang E. Paulus, M. D., Mingmin Zhang, M. D., Erwin Strehler, M. D., Imam El-Danasouri, Ph. D., and Karl Sterzik, M. D. at PubMed.
Infertility cannot only take a toll on the body but also the relationship with yourself and your loved loves. Acupuncture in addition to other modalities can raise Serotonin levels so as to relax the nervous system and calm the mind while working to treat the rest of the body.
What Protocols do we use at Fertile Way for IUI/IVF support?
Fertile Way takes pride in our Natural Fertility Treatments, incorporating a 3 component protocol using Chinese Herbs, Acupuncture, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), Holistic Nutrition, and Lifestyle Support. Fertility and Acupuncture have long been paired as a common, natural fertility treatment. We have taken this success, fine tuned it and incorporated a few other key modalities in order to serve The Whole Person. These protocols have increased the efficacy rates and wellbeing of our clients; in which we are gaining leaps and bounds in our field.
Who can benefit from Natural Fertility Treatments?
Most often couples need to be assessed together to decide if one or both parties need care. During the treatment process most patients have had Western Diagnostics to further support the infertility diagnosis. Fertile Way is well versed in both treatment modalities and will give adequate information on how Chinese Medicine will work to support your particular case.
Through using Acupuncture, herbs, and other appropriate modalities, natural fertility treatment will help balance:
- Potential miscarriage
- Unexplained infertility
- Male motility
- Luteal phase imbalance
*Fertile Way has attended numerous births as a result of Infertility support with or without IVF. This is a true passion of ours and we look forward to bringing other little ones into the world.
