How Chinese Medicine Helps with Fertility Issues

The treatment of infertility with acupuncture and Chinese medicine dates back 2,000 years. These ancient, time-tested techniques improve fertility rates and support a woman’s whole body, unlocking unlimited potential for health, healing and childbearing.

A landmark study published in the medical journal Fertility & Sterility found that acupuncture dramatically improves the chances of becoming pregnant when used in conjunction with other assisted reproductive techniques. Researchers from Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York reviewed studies and concluded that acupuncture helps to:

• increase blood flow to the uterus, which improves the chances of an ovum implanting on the uterine wall

• reduce anxiety, stress, and the hormones that are secreted during stressful situations that can
   significantly decrease fertility

• normalize hormone and endocrine systems that regulate ovulation, especially in women with polycystic
   ovarian syndrome

• positively affect the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, which plays a key role in fertility

• regulate menstrual cycle
