Fertility Acupuncture in Toronto
Alive Holistic Health Clinic
At Alive Holistic Health Clinic our Chinese Medicine Practitioners provide fertility acupuncture to clients in Toronto who are having problems conceiving naturally or who are considering IUI (intra-uterine insemination) or IVF (in-vitro fertilization) treatments in an effort to become pregnant.
Some fairly common conditions often contribute to infertility including high FSH (follicle stimulating hormone), thyroid problems, even stress. Conditions such as endometriosis, PCOS and hormone imbalances are typically managed by medical doctors with medications, but some may have difficulty with the side effects that come with pharmaceutical medication and many women may simply prefer a drug-free approach to becoming pregnant.
Acupuncture is proven safe and effective for improving or alleviating these conditions, which often have a direct impact on fertility. Whether in conjunction with traditional Western medicine, or on its own, acupuncture is highly beneficial.
You may already know the reason for your infertility, or perhaps it is unexplained. Although there are situations in which a woman never learns why she is having problems conceiving, there is still hope with fertility acupuncture and other natural or holistic treatments.
It may surprise you to learn that up to 50 percent of infertility issues can be attributed to a male partner and it is nice to know that fertility acupuncture works equally as well for men.
From POR (poor ovarian reserve), advanced maternal age, stress, depression, and irregular menstrual cycles, there are many things that affect fertility. Alternatively, some people have health issues unrelated to the reproductive system that can affect fertility.
Whatever the root cause for your infertility, whether it is diagnosed or unknown, acupuncture is helpful due to the fact that it promotes wellness and health throughout the entire body. Fertility acupuncture creates balance in all areas of the body and is an investment in your health for life.
What are the benefits of fertility acupuncture?
Fertility acupuncture calms your entire nervous system and in turn, this calms your immune, hormonal and digestive systems.
Fertility acupuncture improves blood flow to the bodily tissues, glands and cells, providing support in areas where the body needs it most such as the ovaries, thyroid and liver.
Leading experts tell us that stress and anxiety are key factors in many illnesses and diseases. Fertility acupuncture dramatically reduces stress, helps regulate hormones, increases blood flow to the uterus and endometrial lining, and improves follicular and ovarian function. It may also improve egg quality in women who are of an advanced age when quality has declined over time.
The majority of patients experience soothing, calming effects and feel fantastic when they emerge from the fertility treatment room.
Put simply, acupuncture promotes healing of the tissues and cells in the body and helps it sustain optimal function, which is, of course, critical for your fertility.
What about IVF and IUI?
After repeated attempts to become pregnant the traditional way without success, some couples decide in-vitro fertilization or intra-uterine insemination may help them realize their dreams of a healthy pregnancy. Whether you have suffered from recurrent pregnancy loss or choose these treatments for other reasons, fertility acupuncture boosts success rates.
Having acupuncture performed in the weeks prior to IVF or IUI and after is recommended to provide the greatest level of support for these procedures.
Combined with a healthy lifestyle, nutrition, herbal supplements and other treatment or therapy, fertility acupuncture is one of the most vital tools to enhance your fertility and help you live your most energetic, fulfilled life at any age.
Whether you suspect a common reproductive condition is preventing you from becoming pregnant or you have unexplained infertility, our Toronto natural fertility practitioners are here to help you empower your health and fertility.
