Giving birth to a child is important to most women. However, it is an extremely complicated process and involves the coming together of a lot of things before a woman can successfully conceive. The internal workings of your body have to be all in place to ensure an effective pregnancy and a stress-free child birth.
Disruptions at any one stage could lead to inability to conceive, to sustain pregnancies or miscarriages. For any woman to be told that she won’t be able to conceive is devastating. According to a study, more than 10% of women under 44 are diagnosed with infertility.
If you are one of those, do not panic or get depressed, keep an open mind and consider what fertility acupuncture has to offer you. Fertility Acupuncture is a treatment that helps you re-align the internal system of your body by influencing and re-setting your organs and hormone production, thereby, creating an optimum and in-sync internal environment that is stable for conceiving and sustaining pregnancy.
Dispelling Myths about Fertility Acupuncture
Many people are averse in trying fertility acupuncture and this is partly the result of the way fertility acupuncture is portrayed in popular media. The media often shows fertility acupuncture as something strange and weird when this is not the case.
Acupuncture is not about poking around with needles, it is an ancient Eastern method that uses the exchange of electrons within the body’s lines of energy in order to restore the functioning of your body. Acupuncture is a therapy which heals by the by means of needles on the exact points. Fertility Acupuncture when employed has shown to increase the possibility of conceiving for many couples.
How Does Fertility Acupuncture Work
In a large number of cases where the woman can not get pregnant the problem lies with the disturbances in the luteal phase which are caused due to problems in the spleen, kidneys and liver. The fact that Acupuncture is a technique of self-healing by stimulation makes it effective in these situations. Fertility Acupuncture channelizes energy in your body to these problematic organs.
What fertility acupuncture does is that it gets your hormones back to the optimum levels. Fertility acupuncture then assists in regulating the system, checking hormonal imbalances; improving the flow and circulation of blood not only in the body but especially to the uterus lining and also boosts the functioning of ovary and follicles. Once your hormonal levels return to their optimum levels getting pregnant will be relatively easier.
As mentioned earlier acupuncture is a method of transferring electrons within the body’s lines of energy to facilitate efficient working of your system. These lines of energy are called “Meridians”, and each energy line affects different organs. Thus, these energy lines can be used to influence the reproductive system.
To understand the functioning of meridians you must understand their process of formation. At the time of the development of the embryo in the womb the cells comprising its structure are in constant movement. As these cells start merging themselves and create ‘fold lines’ which separate similar cells into different groups.

These separate groups develop into organs and these ‘fold lines’ or energy lines continue existing in our body and connecting various organs. It is because of these energy channels that one can affect various organs by just stimulating points on the hands or feet. Thus, to aid pregnancy the related organs can be stimulated to ensure their efficient functioning.
Fertility Acupuncture is great for curing a significant amount of the damage caused by birth control pills which play havoc with your hormones. In less than six months, fertility acupuncture will normalize your menstrual cycle and get your system in order so that it is ready to conceive.
A menstrual cycle that is regular is of great importance as an out of sync menstrual cycle can sometimes result in the release of an egg and the uterus lining being out of phase. This will result in a fertilized egg not having a fertile ground for deposit. The egg will be lost either in the next menstruation cycle or it can cause a miscarriage. Therefore, one must assure a healthy uterus lining which is properly attached so that you can be ready to conceive.
Stress is a major problem for women trying to get pregnant. Acupuncture is very helpful in removing stress from the body. Acupuncture affects the central nervous system and can de-stress it. Fertility Acupuncture is an efficient way to heal and soothe muscles and organs which have been damaged due to stress and removing that stress with fertility acupuncture will restore the normal production of hormones in your body.
Fertility Acupuncture can also be combined with the treatment of using herbs. The use of herbs greatly enhances the influence of fertility acupuncture. The combination of fertility acupuncture and herbs has been discovered to help in cases of infertility where failure to conceive is medically inexplicable, repeated miscarriages or in cases where the pregnancy cannot be sustained.
Apart from helping with infertility related complications fertility acupuncture can significantly increase the chance of conceiving through in vitro fertilization or IVF. It has been discovered that when women with clinically implanted embryos underwent fertility acupuncture the resultant number of women with effectual pregnancies increase.
