What Is Acupuncture for Fertility Support?
Acupuncture for fertility support focuses on a few main causes of infertility and addresses them through this ancient Eastern treatment. Research, studies, and results have shown this to be an effective way for both women and men to increase their chances of fertility by targeting the main reasons their bodies may not be functioning in a way supportive of conception.
Acupuncture is the practice of inserting hair-thin needles into strategic areas of the body to achieve specific results.
One of the biggest culprits of hormonal issues is stress. Stress wreaks havoc on every function in our bodies, including our reproductive health by flooding our systems with the stress hormone cortisol. Acupuncture for fertility support works to reverse the effects stress has on our bodies and eliminate those hormonal imbalances as an obstacle to conception.
Stress can cause women issues ranging from spasms in the uterus that interfere with the implantation of a fertilized egg to preventing ovulation entirely. For men, stress-related issues can include altered sperm counts and even impotence. This treatment works by countering the effects of cortisol by releasing endorphins in the brain.
When hormonal imbalances create ovulation disorders, acupuncture for fertility support can increase blood flow to the reproductive organs, creating a better chance for an egg to be nourished, supported and carried to term. This therapy can help women regulate their cycles, giving them a more reliable ovulation schedule.
