Acupuncture, Infertility and Fertility
How can Acupuncture help with infertility and fertility issues in general?
In China, infertility has been treated for thousands of years through a combination of therapies that addressed the whole person rather than their reproductive system in isolation. This "wholistic" view meant that physical, mental and emotional elements of a person's profile needed to be addressed to achieve maximum results.
In today's modern world, Western sciences are identifying more and more useful ways to integrate these Eastern practices to increase the potential for successful conception in infertile women. One of the most important findings within the past 20 years was the Swedish study that proved uterine blood flow could be positively changed in 100% of the study participants who received 8 acupuncture treatments! (Human Reproduction, Vol.11, No.6, 1996). As acupuncture has been added to treatment plans by reproductive specialists here in the west, other benefits are gaining recognition as well. These include a reduction in the stress responses of the body, decreased anxiety with better sleep patterns, less irritability and emotional swings, changes in FSH and hormonal imbalances, more energy and an overall feeling of well-being. This demonstrates that the strong body-mind connection in Chinese medicine can create both emotional and physical changes as the body reaches a better state of balance.
Many thousands of people today choose acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine's "mind-body" approach as an adjunctive therapy to their medical treatments for infertility. It is a gentle, painless therapy which not only has positive effects on blood flow, hormone regulation and other physical imbalances, but also positively affects the emotional elements so often apparent on the path to pregnancy.
Sherri individualizes treatment to each person's need, addressing both physical and emotional components which may be interfering with conception. She is known by her patients for her gentle approach, empathetic manner and the positive, supportive education she provides along the way.
At age 36 I was diagnosed with high FSH and a 0-5% chance of getting pregnant with my own eggs. I began acupuncture and herbs and diet as prescribed by Julie. Since beginning my treatments, I have conceived naturally 4 times, with only one miscarriage and I have two beautiful, healthy children with another on the way. I continued acupuncture during all my pregnancies and found it to be very helpful. Acupuncture re-established a balance in my body that helped me overcome the terrible odds I had been given and allowed me to become pregnant. I wholeheartedly recommend Julie's approach through Chinese Medicine for anyone struggling with infertility. ~ TR
