Acupuncture and Infertility
In traditional Chinese medicine the human body is considered a whole functional unit and disharmonies between internal organs leads to disease and illnesses. The causes of these disharmonies could be external factors such as infections, malnutrition, stress, etc, Or internal due to genetics, ageing and other factors.
The art of a Traditional Chinese medical practitioner is to treat illnesses by bringing balance and harmony to the internal organs and stimulate the body to heal itself back to health. In women infertility rather than looking at infertility simply as a problem with an ovary or a specific hormone in TCM infertility results from imbalances in organs and energy meridians system in the body.
Several researches have shown that acupuncture could increase the chance of fertility for women and men and also increase the success of IVF by 65 percent.
A TCM practitioner notes every aspect of health history, habits, medication and past treatments to determine which organs and meridians are out of balance and treatment strategy is centred on a holistic treatment (treating the body, mind, emotions and spirit).
