Some people think that infertility treatment is basically a product of modern day science that’s conducted through the use of modern sophisticated reproductive techniques. However, a lot of couples are now turning to Traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture in Fort Lauderdale to help them conceive. It is interesting to see several specialists of high tech reproductive methods are now looking to the world of Chinese medicine to help their patients more so when their techniques don’t bring about any positive results.
Traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture offer a number of benefits to infertile couples. Those benefits can be read in early Chinese medical documents that date as far back as the 1100 A.D. However, the origin of these therapies goes back even further (five thousand years ago) and they are as still as effective as the new medical techniques used in the world today.
Infertility affects one in eight couples. These days, a lot of women who are unable to conceive mainly consider IVF (in vitro fertilization) to help them start a family. New clinical trials have revealed that the likelihood of getting a healthy and successful pregnancy can be maximized by combining Chinese medicine and Western medicine. This has been validated by a recent German study that used acupuncture along with IVF to attain a 42 percent rate of clinical pregnancy compared to the 26 percent achieved by the control group. The study comprised of administering acupuncture right before and after embryo transfer.
A “whole body” or holistic approach taken by acupuncture and Chinese medicine in which the entire systems of the body are addressed instead of treating only the symptoms has been seen to be a more effective way of treating health issues. In this type of approach, improvement in their specific condition is not only experienced by the patients, it also leads to an overall improvement of their well being and health. A few of the great positive side effects of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) treatments include weight loss, reduction of stress, enhanced levels of energy, and a better sleep pattern.
The truth is TCM has been proven to resolve issues related to reproduction including:
Poor Sperm counts
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
It is no wonder then that after being treated with a whole body approach, women discover that their bodies are able to do what they were supposed to do, which is to conceive and carry a healthy baby to term.
