Why consider acupuncture to improve your fertility?
Acupuncture has a history of sound and rigorous treatment of reproductive physiology. It offers solutions for managing infertility such as:
a) regulating the menstrual cycle, b) thickening the uterine lining, c) miscarriage, d) improving the health of the eggs and sperm and e) resolving lifestyle issues that are crucial to improving conception rates and bringing a baby to full term.
Modern research indicates that regular acupuncture treatments can help to increase your fertility.
- Acupuncture on the day of embryo transfer can improve chances of implantation.
- Acupuncture prior to and during the medication phase of IVF has been shown to positively affect the thickness of the uterine lining and improve hormone levels.
- Acupuncture can reduce the anxiety associated with the IVF process by inducing deep relaxation.
- Acupuncture has been shown to improve sperm motility and morphology.
Nutrition can be a key component in preparing your body for pregnancy, and for men, increasing the quality and quantity of sperm. Deborah will suggest a diet tailored to your needs to help optimize your chances of getting pregnant.
I feel so lucky to have Deborah as my acupuncturist. My OBGYN diagnosed me with PCOS and prescribed meds to help me ovulate. I did not get pregnant. However, after 2 months of acupuncture with Deborah I was able to achieve my goal. I am now 11 weeks pregnant! After each treatment I felt healthier, less stressed and a positive energy. Deborah has a very positive attitude and also prescribed a special "fertility diet." I highly recommend Deborah for fertility treatment. I believe her acupuncture treatments helped me get pregnant!
My husband and I had been trying to conceive for 2 years. It was stressful and I had severe headaches and gastrointestinal problems. I turned to Deborah and I've come to trust her. She helped me with my headaches and gastrointestinal problems and we are expecting our first child this month! I recommend Deborah to anyone who is in pain or trying to conceive.
