Difficulty in becoming pregnant has grown into a major health concern, as many couples struggle with fertility. Acupuncture, which has been around for over 2,000 years, can help both the female and male partners eliminate their reproductive hindrances, while achieving a higher level of health.
Here are the top 5 reasons why you need acupuncture for fertility in Toronto, Vaughan, or anywhere else:
1. Clearing the Uterine Lining
Acupuncture can be a powerful tool for clearing the uterine lining, when treatment takes place during menstruation. Ensuring a clear endometrium (lining) is important for embedding during the ovulation phase. Acupuncture is especially effective for women suffering from fibroids, endometriosis, polyps, blood-clotted periods, or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
2. Balancing Hormone Levels
Acupuncture balances hormone levels for optimum fertility. Acupuncture for fertility treatment in the second week of the cycle (follicular cycle) can correct increased Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) levels, improve weak Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) levels, help those suffering from hypothyroid, and improve irregular ovulations. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), this is described as an Essence and Kidney Yin deficiency. In these instances, acupuncture combined with specific nutrients, can dramatically improve Essence and Kidney Yin functions to effect better follicular development, create a healthy uterine lining and thereby promote effective ovulations.
3. Timing Ovulation
Acupuncture helps with ovulation. The opportunity for conception happens during the ovulation phase, so timing is key. Many issues hindering ovulation can be remedied using acupuncture, such as a mis-firing follicle unable to release an egg. In TCM, we refer to the under-performing follicle as the feeble shift of Yin to Yang Qi (energy).
4. Allowing for Conception
Acupuncture improves your health, making conception and a healthy pregnancy possible.
Conception can elude reproductively-healthy women, including too-slender women, too-heavy women, those dealing with excessive stress levels and those who always feel chilled. With acupuncture, these issues and their impact can be addressed to allow for conception and a healthy pregnancy.
5. Correcting Deficiencies
Acupuncture can help with issues arising in the Luteal Phase, which runs from ovulation to the next menstruation, such as a short luteal phase of less than 14 days. This could indicate a Kidney Yang and/or Kidney Qi deficiency. Hormonally, this could indicate reduced progesterone levels, resulting in a too-thin endometrial lining to support a pregnancy. Acupuncture treatments can be very flexible, allowing for a variety of methods to correct Kidney Yang and/or Kidney Qi deficiency, especially when the acupuncture treatments are supplemented with guided nutrition and lifestyle upgrades. Women with a history of miscarriages can carry a pregnancy full term and give birth to healthy babies.
When trying to get pregnant, acupuncture for fertility in Toronto, Vaughan or the GTA is vital during every phase of the woman’s cycle, to ensure proper Yin-Yang harmony throughout.
