For hundreds of years, people have known the healing art of acupuncture, a medical practice that involves the use of very thin and sterile needles inserted into strategic points in the body as a way to treat ailments or relieve pains. Acupuncture Davis improves the well-being of a person by acting as an analgesic to block pain and releasing endorphins to calm and relax the patient. It enables the body to heal itself by releasing neurotransmitters and neurohormones to facilitate the healing process. This kind of healing is entirely different from conventional healing practices such as medications were the body plays no part in the healing process resulting in no healing at all, only temporary relief from the painful symptoms of the illness. .
If used to improve circulation acupuncture helps enable ample blood flow to reach the areas deficient in blood and nutrients especially the major organs. This is an important benefit to people suffering from certain types of infertility. Blood circulation is increased to the ovaries and uterus helping increase the fertility rate of the female. Blood flow also is increased to the endometrium helping to create a thick and strong lining in the uterus greatly minimizing any risk of a miscarriage. Acupuncture is also used to heal spasmed tubes, another cause of infertility. Acupuncture assists the female egg to pass through the spasmed tubes although it may not be able to cure the spasmed tubes themselves. Surgery may be the only option to correct spasmed tubes.
Herbal medicine in combination with acupuncture greatly helps in treating many kinds of infertility conditions. Acupuncture is also very important in reproductive assisted programs such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) as it is known to greatly increase the success rate of this type of treatment. Many IVF clinics now require women to undergo around 4 months of treatment with acupuncture before starting on the IVF program itself.
Fertility treatments such as IVF are very invasive and stressful procedures and these are the very reasons that cause the poor rates of fertilization success. Since acupuncture allows the body to relax and become more balanced, it helps neutralize the stress and discomfort of IVF treatment and this greatly helps increase the chances of fertilization.
