Our IVF Support Services
At Alive Holistic Health Clinic we work with clients throughout the Greater Toronto Area who are interested in IVF acupuncture to complement in-vitro fertilization treatment. As natural fertility specialists with a focus on women’s health, we understand the often difficult journey couples take in their efforts to conceive. There are many factors that can affect fertility including stress, environmental factors, lifestyle, and health issues such as endometriosis, PCOS and even age-related fertility issues. Many patients have tried to become pregnant for months or even years before resorting to IVF in an effort to have a baby; our goal is to help you achieve your dreams and empower your fertility. We also help single women and same sex couples who seek out IVF and Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART).
IVF acupuncture has been proven to reduce stress, important when undergoing treatment. In addition, acupuncture improves blood flow to the uterus and is believed to impact the quality of eggs. A receptive reproductive environment improves pregnancy success rates for women who choose in-vitro fertilization. These procedures are costly, so it makes sense to enhance success rates to the greatest extent possible. An integrated approach incorporating the best of traditional Western medicine and natural or “holistic” medicine often produces the best outcome.
Serving Greater Toronto Area
Natural fertility doctors have many theories when it comes to how or why IVF acupuncture works, but studies have proven that women who have acupuncture therapy become pregnant more often with IVF than those who do not. In a study conducted in Germany in 2002, 42.5% of 80 women who received acupuncture became pregnant compared to only 26.3% of the remaining 80 women who did not receive acupuncture treatments. Other studies have also supported the effectiveness of acupuncture for IVF.
Naturopathic medicine supports the use of acupuncture and other components of Traditional Chinese Medicine that work to create balance and harmony in the various systems and organs of the body. Rather than treating symptoms, our focus is on the body as a whole and pinpointing the underlying cause of disease or disorders. By achieving maximum overall physical and emotional well-being, it is possible to enjoy improved fertility.
