Acupuncture for Fertility and Pregnancy
Are you looking for a safe, effective way to boost your fertility, or ease the discomfiture of pregnancy?
Acupuncture is a safe, non-invasive and easy way to potentially increase your chances of getting pregnant, and there are many who are turning to acupuncture for fertility solutions when they are having difficulty conceiving.
Acupuncture greatly helps in curing fertility problems by encouraging follicle production, improving blood circulation and lining thickness in the uterus, improving egg quality, treating menstrual cycle disorders and improving overall health, which leads to the ability to more easily conceive and remain pregnant.
One of the ways acupuncture treatments increases fertility is by reducing stress, which is often a key factor in the fertility of both men and women. Stress can also alter sperm counts, motility, and cause impotence. Acupuncture infertility treatments counter the effects of stress and cortizol by releasing endorphins in the brain.
Acupuncture also works at stimulating the hypothalamus to effectively balance the endocrine system and its hormones and to get to the root cause of both male and female infertility. Acupuncture infertility treatments also have the added bonus of producing few or no side effects.
Once you’re pregnant, acupuncture is still very much an ally. Women experience discomfort in all stages of their pregnancy, whether it’s pelvic pain, hip pain, lower back pain or ligament pain. Acupuncture is a safe, natural and effective way to improve circulation and quell these common ailments, in addition to headache or migraine relief.
Speaking of discomfort, pregnancy-related nausea and vomiting are common among women, particularly in the first and second trimesters. During this time, rising levels of hormones, fatigue and stress wreak havoc on the digestive system. Acupuncture restores balance to this sensitive area and offers often immediate relief.
Acupuncture is relaxing, painless and gentle, and drug-free. Less stress, a healthy body, balance – and the endorphins are certainly a bonus! Acupuncture helps you with your pregnancy from start to finish — a happy, healthy you…and baby!
