Research Proves Acupuncture Works

By Dr. Maria Phillips

Acupuncture for Treatment of Infertility, Endometriosis, and Menstrual Cycle Disorders.

European Research Study proves that acupuncture increases pregnancy rates for women undergoing In-Vitro Fertilization. The study concludes that acupuncture seems to be a useful tool for improving pregnancy rate after ART. This study has been reported on the national news and in US medical journals, prompting an increase in referrals from medical doctors for the use of acupuncture in IVF procedures.

Two groups totaling 160 subjects, each received a standard in-vitro procedure (IVF). One group, however, also received acupuncture therapy before and after implantation. The non acupuncture in-vitro group had a 26.3 percent pregnancy rate, while the group of women who received acupuncture showed a 42.5 percent success rate.
Acupuncture has been used to successfully treat infertility and menstrual cycle disorders for literally thousands of years. While most modern research is set up to try to determine why Acupuncture works,
this German study demonstrates scientifically that acupuncture can improve pregnancy rates. This scientific proof is what American doctors have been waiting for to be able to confidently recommend acupuncture to their patients. Doctors in the Cleveland Clinic are already using these techniques with an 83% success rate.

Acupuncture Physician, Beth Hopkins-Acampora, at the Center For Natural Health here in Jacksonville, Florida has been using this procedure successfully improve pregnancy rates for client undergoing IVF treatments.

According to the American Society for Reproductive Science, over 6.1 million or 10 percent of women in the United States are diagnosed as being infertile, which is defined as one year of unsuccessful conception. Women who choose to conceive after the age of 35 have a greater chance of having medical difficulties that may result in infertility issues. Due to career choices, as well as other extraneous factors, which include dietary and exercise habits, years of birth control pill use and an increasingly stressful modern life, these numbers will likely increase and a greater portion of the population will be affected by infertility in the future.

The causes of infertility are vast and varied. Some of the main factors that may prevent successful conception include: lack of ovulation, poor quality of eggs, thin endometrial lining, poor quality and number of follicles, low progesterone, high follicle stimulating hormone, blocked Fallopian tubes, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, adhesions, infections and stress.

In summary, acupuncture offers a cost-effective, safe, and comprehensive intervention for women who want to become pregnant. Acupuncture is proven effective for men and women who wish to prepare their bodies for conception, pregnancy, and delivery, even those who have not experienced difficulties with infertility. Similarly, women who do not wish to undergo IVF for a variety of reasons, also choose acupuncture as an effective mode of treatment. Finally, acupuncture can be integrated with ART to enhance effectiveness.
Acupuncture has been clinically proven to:

– Enhance Egg Quality: Test results of clients who have undergone acupuncture have shown that the egg quality significantly improves.
– Enhance the Quality of the Uterine Lining: A healthy uterine lining is necessary to help with embryo implantation and to grow a healthy baby. Acupuncture improves the flow of healthy blood into the uterus.
– Reduce the Chances of Uterine Contraction After IVF procedures: Acupuncture relaxes the patient and the uterus so it won’t contract and expel the fertilized egg.
