Acupuncture for infertility treatment has proved to be a great infertility option. Before taking the expensive step into modern scientific procedures try acupuncture for infertility as it is recognized worldwide as a miraculous Chinese remedy. Pricking needles on different parts of the body is a procedure that can actually helping remove infertility issues and promoting a healthy pregnancy.

The concept of acupuncture is based on a belief of promoting the natural flow of balanced energy throughout the body. Any disruption in the balance of energy will lead to diseases and pains. Acupuncture is done to remove a blockage and allow a natural balance of smooth energy to flow freely throughout the body. Placing needles in different locations creates an unblocking of energy. The natural flow of energy restores the body and allows for a natural fertility cycle to return and promote the opportunity for a natural pregnancy.

Research of acupuncture and infertility indicates significant improvement in a patient’s ability to become pregnant in a 30 to 60 day period. There are different methods of acupuncture for infertility treatments. It is important to determine what is causing your infertility before seeking any type of treatment. Make sure that your acupuncturist knows of such infertility issues such as poor egg quality, low sperm count, ovulation disorder, miscarriage, fallopian tube blockage and others.

Acupuncture may be the best option available for many couples that are not willing to spend a fortune on specialist infertility treatments. You may be surprised to learn that acupuncture needles are extremely thin and usually thinner than a human hair. The insertion depth is less than a few millimeters. Some acupuncturist will use a little larger needle and go a little deeper, however it is so much smaller than a standard hypodermic needle that the penetration is usually totally pain free. Acupuncture for infertility is safe, effective and a reliable treatment for infertility support. Acupuncture for infertility is usually administered in the eyebrows, earlobes, eyelids, fingertips and ears. After inserting the needles, the patient is asked to relax for about 45 minutes. This procedure has been found to be very effective and only requires 4 sessions.

Acupuncture includes different treatment methods like electronic treatments, auricular treatments and manual treatments. In the electronic acupuncture treatment, electronic needles are used for curing obstacles. In case of auricular treatments, needles are pricked in the earlobes and ear. This acts as an alternative therapy for hormone disorders.

There is yet anther method that involves the use of Chinese herbs for treating infertility. A Chinese herb called hachimijiogan made from Rehmannia root and other ingredients. It helps in reducing the level of serum prolactin subsequently thereby resulting in a normal ovulation cycle and pregnancy.

Acupuncture for infertility also works by increasing endorphins production. Endorphins are basically the essential brain chemicals that help in reducing stress. It further helps in improving the supply of blood to the different body parts including the uterus and the ovaries. This in turn allows the uterus to properly nourish the fetus and ensures healthy delivery; the risk of miscarriage is reduced as well.

As always, seek out the advice of your OB/GYN before beginning any form of treatment for your infertility. However, you need to be in charge of your treatment and make sure your doctor understands that you may seek other forms of treatment other than the standard pharmaceutical approach. Best of luck!
