Acupuncture and Natural Fertility

Posted in Articles on June 6th, 2011 by admin – Comments Off

With the world population reaching 7 billion you could be forgiven for thinking the human race has an easy time reproducing. While this is true for many people, some couples have problems conceiving yet do not want to go down the route of artificial fertility aids

In terms of human medicine, acupuncture is by far the oldest formalised method of treatment spanning back some 5000 years in China. The acceptance of acupuncture has increased in western medicine over recent decades and many advocate the use of it as an aid to natural fertility.

Acupuncture works on the theory that the body has energy flows, or chi, along recognisable and consistent pathways around the body, called meridians. The insertion of acupuncture needles helps stimulate flow along the meridians, assisting in areas where chi has become blocked or stagnant.

By improving the energy flow, or bio-chemical balance in modern terminology, the whole body is in better health which in itself is an important factor in being able to conceive. Added to this, acupuncture has a long history in reducing stress, stress being a known factor to conception difficulties.

There are possible links with acupuncture to increased health of sperm, helping blood flow to the uterus, increasing the chances of ovulation and also the regulation of ovulation. Acupuncture can be part of a naturally healthy approach to preparing yourself for pregnancy.

Use it as part of a natural fertility approach that can include among other things specific herbal remedies, regular exercise, monitoring the fertility cycle, and making sure your body has as much healthy nutrition while eliminating toxins from your diet. Yoga has a positive effect on all the body systems with programs specifically designed for fertility and pregnancy.

Improve the well being of your mind and body naturally while you prepare yourselves for bringing new life into the world, giving you all the best chance of healthy development at natural fertility Queensland.
