Acupuncture is probably the most ancient of all existing medical treatments in the world. This procedure originated in China and it deals with balancing life energy or chi in the body and maintaining the normal flow of chi throughout the body. Acupuncturists believe that the imbalance of energy caused by the blockage in the flow of chi causes pain and sickness. Energy imbalance can also be caused by the disharmony and imbalance of the two components of chi – yin and yang energy. These two energies are similar to the negative and positive forces of electricity. Their imbalance causes the rise of diseases, pain and illness. Infertility is basically an imbalance in the functions of certain body systems either to deficient yin or yang or excessive yin or yang. Acupuncture addresses infertility problems by inserting hair thin needles into specific points in the body that has underlying energy vessels called meridians. These points are called acupuncture points and this is where the needles are inserted to stimulate the meridians.
The procedure of needle insertion does not elicit pain if performed by a qualified acupuncturist. Acupuncture therapy for fertility problems is considered by mainstream medicine as an alternative form of treatment as opposed to the conventional treatment of IVF. Acupuncturists often see infertility as an imbalance or disturbance of the hormonal function. Acupuncture addresses this hormonal imbalance to help treat infertility. One of acupuncture’s aims is to restore the woman’s normal menstrual cycle with the view to achieve normal regular ovulation and in achieving this raise the chance of successful conception. As mentioned, acupuncture can be used in combination with IVF for the treatment of infertility. It can also be used in concert with another form of traditional Chinese medicine, herbal medicine to enhance the infertility treatment.
