The Journey to Pregnancy Begins With
A Healthier, Stress-Free You
Unchecked, chronic stress plays a large roll with trying to have a baby. In fact, stress canincrease your time to conception by almost 30%.
That said, acupuncture can help you manage chronic stress and boost your fertility. According to a study published in the British Medical Journal, women who choose to complement their fertility treatment (e.g. IVF) with acupuncture are up to 65% more likely to conceive successfully than women who only receive fertility treatment.
Moreover, the same study also established a connection between acupuncture and improved egg quality, stronger uterine lining, and that it helps facilitate implantation.
Another study carried out by Christian-Lauritzen-Institut, Germany, revealed that women who received acupuncture while undergoing assisted reproduction therapy (ART) experienced a higher rate of successful outcomes than those who did not receive acupuncture.
What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient therapeutic discipline of Chinese medicine. It involves inserting fine needles in the skin at specific points. If you do not want needles, you can also opt for a needle-less acupuncture technology called the LLLT
These areas can facilitate the flow of positive energy throughout your body. Acupuncture can also help eliminate the negative energy that may be contributing to your stress and anxiety. It promotes the human body’s natural healing response. It may also align your nervous, endocrine, immune, cardiovascular, and digestive systems.
Experts believe there are many ways acupuncture can aid in boosting fertility.
