Acupuncture Treatment for Fertility
There are many reasons why couples have difficulty conceiving – irregular menstruation, hormone imbalance, cold uterus, low sperm count to name a few. Whatever the reason infertility can be a major cause of stress and hopelessness in otherwise healthy couples.
Acupuncture has been known to dramatically increase fertility by invigorating and increasing sperm count in males and regulating the menstrual cycle in females.
Acupuncture can also increase fertility by reducing stress and its effects on the body, When someone is under stress the hormone cortisol is released in the brain. This alters the brain's chemical balance, changing hormone levels and disrupting the reproductive cycle.
