Fertility and Pregnancy.
Are you struggling with fertility issues such as:
- secondary infertility
- going through IVF or ICSI
- unexplained infertility
then I would love to help you. Why not as a first step come along for a free consultation?
Over the last 20 years I have helped many men and women who have experienced fertility problems or who have had a miscarriage by using acupuncture.
Acupuncture is a fantastic way to support individuals through their journey from pre-conception to pregnancy and beyond.
Acupuncture can help with both male and female fertility issues by re-balancing hormones, regulating the menstrual cycle, stimulating the production of healthy sperm and eggs. It also helps to reduce stress and anxiety and has scientifically been shown to be effective in the treatment of unexplained fertility issues.
Acupuncture also helps to support the treatment of existing health conditions such as polycystic ovaries, endometriosis and amenorrhea (lack of a menstrual cycle).
Like all treatments fertility acupuncture is tailored to the individual and takes into consideration their lifestyle, stress levels, sleeping and eating habits and nutrition to optimise conditions for a healthy pregnancy to be achieved.
Acupuncture is a really effective way to support pregnancy. It can be used to help alleviate morning sickness, help with symphysis pubis dysfunction, anxiety and keep the mind and body in balance throughout pregnancy, help to prepare for childbirth and encourage the body into the best conditions for labour.
The overwhelming anguish and sense of loss experienced by women struggling with infertility issues is an unwelcome motivator to explore treatments options that will increase their chances of conceiving a healthy baby. From fertility drugs, i.v.f. and donor eggs to acupuncture and other natural remedies.
There is growing evidence that Acupuncture when used in conjunction with western fertility treatments increases conception rates by 26%. A recent study at Tel Aviv University demonstrated that when combining IUI with acupuncture treatments, 65.5 percent of the test group were able to conceive, compared with 39.4 percent of the control group who received no acupuncture treatment.
I have set out below more detailed information if you like to know more. But it is no substitute for us to meet so that you can tell me about your own circumstances and concerns.
