Acupuncture Louisville and Infertility

September 3, 2012

Louisville Acupuncture treatment can help relax your body and mind which is quite important if you have been under stress too long.  When your body and mind relaxes it helps the body reinvigorate and enables it to achieve a natural state of balance and harmony once again.

Acupuncture is one of the most ancient healing practices that is still widely used around the world particularly in Asia and is probably the world’s most popular form of alternative treatment.  It is one of the most important components of a codex of healing modalities in traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM.  The basis of TCM lies in the belief of chi or vital energy that flows through all living things including humans on pathways of called meridians all existing inside the body.  The goal of acupuncture is the restoration of the free and normal flow of chi in the body.

Ironically, modern medical technology has not been able to properly detect chi or even the meridians which the ancient TCM practitioners believe exist.  What modern medical technology observed, however, was that acupuncture stimulates hormone creation and secretion and betters the flow of blood in the body.  These help the body heal itself and bolster its immune functions.  There are many causes of infertility and acupuncture is able to heal many of them.  it assists the body to achieve a normal and functioning reproductive system helping improve the likelihood of conception.  Acupuncture helps to establish balance and harmony in the body’s energy system as well for better health and overall well-being.

Stress is one of the major contributors of infertility.  Physical and emotional stress can mar the body’s natural rhythm causing dysfunctions in the body systems particularly the endocrine system.  The normal hormonal rhythm can be affected by stress and this can cause problems in the reproductive system.  The relief of stress enables the body to correct itself as well as normalize body functions once more. When the endocrine system works well once again this creates a better environment for conception.  Physical or mental stress needs to be treated promptly since longstanding stress in the body can lead fertility problems that are much more difficult to treat

Many qualified and experienced acupuncturists can treat various kinds of infertility but it is best to go to one that specializes in treating this disorder.  One good source to provide you with referral for a good acupuncturist can be from an OB/gyn doctor, or even from family or friends.  Physicians may know an acupuncturist who especially handles infertility cases and you can ask your physician if he knows one for your problem.  For the treatment of infertility acupuncture is often combined with herbal medicine.  The first thing an acupuncturist treats in treating infertility is the stress in the body.
