Fertility acupuncture is a Chinese alternative treatment that originated in early China. The belief is that fertility is related to the flow of energy or chi through meridians, which are believed to run along the body. When there is an imbalance between the chi or energy and the movement of blood or oxygen throughout the body, pain and suffering can result. This theory is the basis of fertility acupuncture, which involves the use of thin needles that are placed on specific points along the meridians, or along the energy pathway.
Studies have demonstrated that acupuncture treatments for fertility may improve the thickness of the female uterine wall and facilitate successful egg implantation in women who are undergoing IVF or IUI. This treatment has been used successfully for more than 5000 births. However, like all alternative treatment protocols, there are some cautions and precautions that should be taken by patients before beginning such a treatment. Patients should be properly informed about the risks and benefits of this treatment before consenting to undergo it. For those considering undergoing acupuncture may wish to discuss it with a qualified acupuncturist, physician, or other trained medical professional.
Acupuncture and physiotherapy treatment can have a positive effect on fertility and pregnancy and it has been scientifically proven to be effective in aiding couples struggling with infertility, especially in helping women. Acupuncture has been scientifically proven to increase blood flow to the uterus, specifically to the ovaries. Increased blood flow to the ovaries allows more room for a developing egg and allows for a more comfortable pregnancy. Women who choose acupuncture as a treatment protocol are often those who have gone through IVF and are having trouble getting pregnant or have experienced repeated miscarriages.
It is important for patients to realize that any discomfort associated with the acupuncturist during a fertility acupuncture in Dubai is normal and should not be viewed as a problem. As with all types of treatment, there will be soreness and tenderness at the points treated. This is only natural. This generally resolves itself over the course of the next few days. Patients should take the time to enjoy the treatment and relax while their acupuncturist works to help them conceive.
Fertility acupuncture does not change lifestyle or diet and patients are not required to stop all intake of medications. It should not be considered a substitute for western medicine or surgical options. It should be used in addition to all other forms of treatments that your doctor or holistic practitioner may recommend. It should not be considered a cure or miracle cure and should not be used alone in place of Western Medicine.
