Acupuncture works by stimulating certain nerve points on the body to elicit a physiological response. The range of responses can vary, from stimulating hormones via the pituitary system or the muscles by way of the nervous system. Acupuncture is one of the world’s oldest systems of medicine, having been practiced for more than 3,000 years, although it has only recently been used in the US to treat fertility problems and where people have not been successful with IVF.
New York City is the home of an innovative clinic that has merged acupuncture with fertility treatment with extraordinary success. The treatment is a complete course designed to address the fertility issues of both the soon to be mother and father. Fertility is not simply a women’s issue, although it tends to be viewed that way by many. The acupuncture treatment can help optimize a man’s reproductive system, which can be critical to successful conception.
In fact, the odds are about equal that the problem is going to be with male fertility as female fertility. Each account for about one third of infertility cases where the cause is known, with the final third being a combination of factors that included both partners. In a large percentage of cases, about twenty percent, the cause of infertility isn’t known, and these unknown causes account for a large portion of cases where couples fail with IVF.
The Berkley Center's treatments actually help both partners achieve their maximum state of potential fertility. This works through a number of biological mechanisms, which includes balancing the hormones, regulating energy and blood flow. A problem with any of these can make it impossible for conception to occur, which is why the acupuncture treatment works so well.
Acupuncture is a safe, clinically proven way to bring your body back into balance. There is no risk to your future child, and the treatment is covered by many insurance policies. If you haven’t seen the results you want with IVF, The Berkley Center for Reproductive Wellness should be your next destination to get the treatment you need for the child you want.
