Bringing a child into the world is an experience that many couples want to enjoy, however problems with fertility can affect people’s hopes of becoming parents. Infertility doesn’t affect just males or just females exclusively; it can affect both in different ways. Causes of infertility in males include low sperm count, a blocked vas deferens, large numbers of abnormally shaped sperm, and genetic diseases. For females who have low fertility or are infertile, contributing factors usually include age, problems with the fallopian tubes, ovulation disorders, endometriosis, and polycystic ovarian syndrome. While research is still ongoing about how acupuncture can assist with fertility, it’s a treatment that may help to support the body while trying to fall pregnant. Melbourne Acupuncture Wellness offers acupuncture in North Melbourne to promote better health and wellbeing and provide support that may assist with fertility.
The placement of acupuncture needles in particular pressure points is believed to activate the release of specific hormones in the body that may act as a pain reliever and also help the body to heal. The process of acupuncture may also be very calming and helpful in reducing stress. Stress of course is one of the biggest contributors to infertility, so managing stress through Chinese medicine may assist in supporting natural fertility.
The goal of integrative medicine, which combines conventional and alternative treatments like acupuncture, is to harness the body’s power to heal itself.
Acupuncture and herbal medicine may support women undergoing IVF treatment. Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine may also be used to supplement IVF and support the body during the IVF process.
