Fertility

The global average of couples with fertility problems was 9% as of 2016. Many things contribute to this statistic such as pre-existing health conditions, high stress, poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, nulliparity, advanced age at time of attempted conception and more. Assisted reproductive technologies are often very expensive and inaccessible. Evidence points to acupuncture offering an opportunity to promote natural fertility. In one study, the acupuncture protocol tested influenced women who received it compared to women who used lifestyle modification alone: their fertility awareness and wellbeing increased, and those who conceived did so in half the time.

Complementary and alternative medicines (CAM) are sometimes used by individuals who desire to improve the outcomes of their fertility treatment and/or mental health during fertility treatment. Among the various forms of complementary modalities, acupuncture has the highest level of evidence for its use in improving male and female fertility outcomes. Especially if stress is a factor, the positive impact of acupuncture on the couple’s quality of sleep, vitality and wellbeingis paramount to the ability to conceive. It is well-known that it can be challenging to conceive when one or both people are under constant high stress. Sometimes lifestyle factors such as work and exercise will need to be evaluated and re-prioritized. 


Pregnancy & Miscarriage Prevention

Contrary to what you may think, acupuncture is safe and effective during all phases of conception and pregnancy. In the first trimester of pregnancy, some women experience nausea, vomiting, headaches, fatigue and “morning sickness.” Acupuncture is a great tool in all of these instances. In the next two trimesters, some women experience, sciatica, back pain and other discomforts due to the size and weight of the growing fetus, placenta, and womb. These symptoms can also be treated with acupuncture for pain relief. 

Some women have trouble with miscarriage after they conceive. Acupuncture can help to prevent miscarriage as well as uterine prolapse and hemorrhoids. There are pressure points on the head that lift the energy of the body upwards and help to prevent and treat these conditions of sinking qi (vitality). 


Labor Induction / Childbirth / Post-Partum

When a baby is past the due date and the mother doesn’t want to have the birth medically induced with drugs or to have a c-section, acupuncture can be utilized to stimulate uterine contractions and help induce labor naturally. Acupuncture can also be used during natural childbirth to control pain (when the mother is not given an epidural or any other drugs). After the birth, acupuncture can be used to help the mother to heal from any birth traumas or even just to transition back into feeling like herself again. Acupuncture stimulates a release of serotonin from the brain, which is a neurotransmitter responsible for feelings of wellbeing. Because of this combined with the fact that it also can help balance hormones, it can help to prevent post-partum depression, which many mothers might not even realize that they are suffering from, much less know where to turn for help. Otherwise post-partum acupuncture can help non-depressed women with new born baby fatigue, and help with other changes that the woman may be experiencing in her body and spirit.
 

Menstrual Irregularities
Menstrual irregularities include: Pre-Menstrual Syndrome(
acne, tender breasts, bloating, cravings, feeling tired, irritability, and mood changes), amenorrhea (absence of menstruation), menorrhagia (heavy menstruation), dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation), Oligomenorrhea (light or infrequent menstruation). These may be caused by either a hormonal imbalance or by a condition such as uterine fibroids, uterine cancer, endometriosis or poly-cystic ovarian syndrome. Acupuncture and holistic medicine (such as nutrition, supplements and herbal remedies) are able to restore balance to the body to regulate the menstrual cycle and eliminate discomfort and treatsvarious forms of abnormal menstruation.
 

Menopause
The average age of menopause is 50 years old. Some women stop menstruating without any symptoms. Other women experience hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, intermittent bleeding, vaginal dryness, poor concentration, fatigue and other symptoms. Women experiencing these symptoms have a few options.  The conventional treatment is hormone replacement therapy, however, if the women ever had breast or uterine cancer, she might not be a candidate for hormone replacement therapy (because of the concern for recurrence). 
Acupuncture and holistic medicine (such as nutrition, supplements and herbal remedies) are also able to restore balance to the body to regulate the hormones and eliminate these uncomfortable symptoms to help this transition in life to go more smoothly and seamlessly in a natural way.
 

Ovarian Cysts, Uterine Fibroids, & Endometriosis
Many women have benign ovarian cysts filled with fluid and this is considered normal and nothing to worry about.  The water retention may wax and wane depending on where the woman is in her cycle.  Other ovarian cysts can be cancerous and early treatment is vital. If left untreated, cysts can cause complications including infection (the cyst fills with bacteria and pus, and becomes an abscess). If the abscess bursts inside the body, there is a risk of blood poisoning (septicemia). 

Due to lifestyle factors such as poor diet, environmental pollution, stress, and hormonal imbalances, PCOS is becoming a more prevalent condition. Symptoms include: infertility, acne, hirsutism, and male patternbalding.  This condition can be treated successfully with acupuncture and holistic medicine.

Uterine fibroids are very common and most often benign. Many women don’t even know that they have them and they shrink during menopause when estrogen levels decline. Other women may experience heavy or painful periods and rarely may develop uterine cancer.  If left untreated, fibroids can continue to grow, both in size and number. As these tumors take over the uterus the symptoms can become worse. The heavy bleeding and discomfort may worsen and may be accompanied by severe cramping. Acupuncture can help to prevent and treat uterine fibroids. By improving circulation to the uterus, it promotes the body’s ability to heal itself and the growths may shrink in size or completely dissolve.

Symptoms of endometriosis includes pelvic or belly pain which might start before the menstrual cycle and last for several days. It can feel sharp and stabbing, and it usually doesn’t go away with medication. Some women report that the gnawing or throbbing sensation can be rather severe. Acupuncture can help to prevent and treat endometriosis. By improving circulation to the uterus, it promotes the body’s ability to heal itself and the hormonal balancing helps to regulate this condition which usually corresponds to high levels of estrogen in the body.


Weight Loss

Acupuncture can be utilized as a tool to aid weight loss. Together with a nutritious meal plan and healthy lifestyle, it can help people to reach their ideal weight faster by regulating internal organs, boosting metabolism, aiding digestion and elimination, reducing water retention and decreasing appetite. For best results, it needs to be done on a regular basis and the lifestyle changes need to be permanent. A healthy weight loss is a slow one of about 1-2 pounds per week.
