Acupuncture Can Help Reverse Infertility

A long term clinical study has concluded that the use of acupuncture as a treatment for infertility can significantly improve chances of pregnancy. The study tested acupuncture alongside groups of women who were either also using in-vitro fertilization (IVF), intrauterine Insemination (IUI) and women using no biomedical assistance. While results varied between the different groups they also experienced increases in fertility. Compared to the normal predicted outcome of 24% conception from IVF, 42.5% of the women in the IVF group conceived. The group of women receiving no other biomedical treatment for fertility other than acupuncture, demonstrated a conception rate of 52.38%. This study clearly demonstrates how acupuncture is a safe and effective way to increase a woman’s fertility when trying to conceive. The researchers also noted that no adverse health effects were witnessed during the study. This is promising news for anyone undergoing fertility treatment who wants a safe, natural and cost-effective way to increase their chances of conception.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

While some believe it works solely via the placebo effect, let me remind you that it has been proven to work on animals and animals do not necessarily have any expectations when it comes to Acupuncture.

There are several different theories on how it works and while placebo in humans is a factor, there are also other factors to consider. 

By inserting a needle in the body you are creating a "micro-injury" causing the body's defenses to migrate to the area and repair surrounding tissues. It can also stimulate nerves to activate healing along that nerve pathway. The brain also has a great deal of healing power, and so, by inserting a needle into the body you are calling your brain's focus to that area for a more concentrated healing.
