Chi Anyone? Acupuncture Treatments For Infertility

Let The Energy Flow!

In the Far East, the ancient practice of acupuncture continues to garner outstanding results for all sorts of malfunctions within the body. It involves the painless insertion of very thin needles into special points on the body. Each of these points, more than 2,000 of them, are associated with various pathways of the natural energy flow of the body, called the Chi (pronounced chee). When there is a blockage in the flow of energy, the body malfunctions-physically, mentally and emotionally. In acupuncture practice, the pathways (called meridians) are unblocked and the Chi is allowed to flow properly. In turn, this helps regulate and improve body functions.

Once Laughed At, Acupuncture Has Found Its Place

Western medicine has looked at healing through one specific lens and until recently has brushed other forms of medicine off as illegitimate, snake oil, or not verifiable. However, it is undeniable. Acupuncture works and, fertility acupuncture has been successful in treating and complimenting traditional treatment for many infertility issues. Western research has finally verified (although somewhat veiled) that acupuncture has clear impact on the body's systems. From eliminating pain and strengthening immunities to regulating hormones and addressing infertility, acupuncture is now recognized as an acceptable and effective method of healing.

Acupuncture And The Treatment Of Female Infertility

When used to treat female infertility, acupuncture helps to regulate the reproductive hormones and aids in the maturation of eggs. The flow of the hormones FSH and estrogen are regulated within the brain, by the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus. Acupuncture needles are inserted into meridians far away from these organs, so there's no need to worry.

Acupuncture is particularly effective in the treatment of hormonal imbalances and irregularities in the menstrual cycle . It can be applied in conjunction with traditional Chinese herbs and medicines or pharmaceuticals. In more severe cases such as PCOS or anovulation, acupuncture has been useful. Ovulatory problems, where the failure to ovulate is connected with FSH imbalances, indicating a low ovarian reserve, as well as luteal phase defect related to progesterone imbalances, are both very treatable with acupuncture.

Acupuncture can be used to help stimulate egg production and regular ovulation during the first phase of the menstrual cycle, and then provide hormonal balance during the luteal phase. PMS symptoms, anxiety, stress and the frustrations associated with trying-to-conceive (TTC) can all be helped with acupuncture. Since acupuncture also helps blood flow, it is beneficial to the building up of the endometrium (uterine lining) in preparation for the implantation of the fertilized egg. If progesterone levels are not high enough to sustain the lining of the uterus during the luteal phase of the cycle, acupuncture may lessen the chance of miscarriage by hel...

Complementary And Alternative Medicine

Dismissed As Invalid

Ask any couple who have been disappointed by the failure to conceive if they would try anything to have a baby, and the answer would probably be, "Yes." However, conventional medicine struggles with the concepts of using alternative methods to facilitate conception. Ancient methods of healing are often cast aside because they don't fit the framework of what is taught in Western medical schools. Sadly, many couples who might receive help through alternative medicine are discouraged by their health care practitioners from investigating or using these methods.

Infertility Affects Many

Infertility is quite common in the US, with nearly 10 percent of men and women in their reproductive years suffering with some form of infertility. The plethora of treatments available to such people ranges from in vitro fertilization, hormone therapy, fertility drugs, surgical repair (to open blocked tubes) to behavior modification (lose weight, stop smoking). While many of these therapies work, many do not, or it takes a long time and a lot of money before results are seen. During the process, nerves are frayed, nobody has fun, and lovemaking becomes an event for sperm donation.

What Is CAM?

Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is a title used to describe any medical practice or product that is not included in the conventional Western definition of standard health care. Alternative medicine refers to medical treatment used in place of standard care, such as acupuncture, and complementary medicine is nonstandard treatment that is used along with standard care, like hypnosis.

The Use Of Acupuncture In Treating Infertility

Several studies have been done proving the benefits of acupuncture as a primary or secondary method of infertility treatment. It is an ancient medical technique that rebalances a person's body through the stimulation of pressure points. The most common method of performing acupuncture is with the insertion of needles at various specific sites on the body. Used in China and other Asian countries for more than 3,000 years, this method of healing continues to be used to treat all types of maladies and conditions. It is also used alone or together with other disciplines to treat infertility in women and men. Research has shown consistently that there are positive responses to this type of treatment, especially in cases where it is used in conjunction with conventional fertility treatments.

Hypnosis As A Complementary Treatment

There have not been many studies on hypnosis in terms of a treatment for infertility. However, as time goes on, more studies are becoming available and the results are very impressive. One study indicated that when used as a complementary aid to IVF, the chances of conception doubled.

Unlike acupuncture, hypnosis has been used in Western medicine for nearly 150 years. Doctors in the late 1800s used hypnosis to help sedate patients who were having surgery. Hypnosis induc...

GETTING PREGNANT: Infertility and Acupuncture

Increasingly being recognized as a valid form of treatment by Western doctors, the practice of acupuncture dates back thousands of years in China. While acupuncture has been found to be helpful in treating a variety of ailments, from pain management to quitting smoking, recent studies have shown that it can also be beneficial to those experiencing infertility .

From East… Although modern medical science has failed to conclusively explain just how it works, acupuncture has been used by people for more than 3000 years. In the 1600s, Jesuit Monks imported the knowledge of acupuncture to France where it quickly spread throughout Europe. In the United States, though, acupuncture has only just begun to be widely practiced – within the last 20 years, or so.

Acupuncture is based in the Chinese belief that a balance in the energy flow (known as qi and chi) through the body is needed in order to stay healthy. When a blockage or imbalance occurs in that flow, your health is negatively impacted. There are 20 major pathways that qi is believed to travel along. These pathways, or meridians, are accessible through 400 different acupuncture points.

Based on the problem you’re experiencing, different combinations of points are stimulated using acupuncture needles. These long, thin needles vary in length according to which point it is to be inserted into. By stimulating these points, energy flow is rebalanced and your natural healing ability can do its work.

...To West

The practice of acupuncture remains somewhat controversial among Westerners. Because modern scientific thought can’t explain just how acupuncture works, many refuse to believe that this ancient medicine is anything more than a bunch of mumbo jumbo. The fact that the energy pathways don’t actually correspond to any recognized body system (like the blood or nervous system) only increases people’s skepticism.

However, the National Institutes of Health in the United States have noted that many researchers are investigating the issue. Some possible theories as to just why acupuncture works include:

  • Changes to the central nervous system during acupuncture sessions alter the regulation of blood pressure and flow as well as body temperature.
  • Acupuncture stimulates the central nervous system causing neurotransmitters and neurohormones to be released, thereby boosting your body’s natural ability to heal itself.
  • Acupuncture reduces pain by releasing the endorphins, which naturally occur in the body’s pain control system, into the central nervous system.

Regardless of just how it works, the fact remains that it is a relatively painless procedure with minimal side effects when done by a professional. The most common risks associated with acupuncture include puncturing the organs, transmitting infectious diseases, broken or forgotten needles and minor bleeding. However, going to a fully trained and certified practitioner significantly reduces these risks. Acupuncture shoul...
