Women’s Fertility Problems and Acupuncture Fort Lauderdale

January 1, 2012

Acupuncture Fort Lauderdale is an ancient Oriental medical treatment that has been used for thousands of years for the relief of stress and pain.  It is a holistic therapy that does not use any type of harmful drugs.  The procedure itself involves the insertion of needles into the skin at acupuncture points in the body. Energy vessels called meridians located just beneath the acupuncture points are stimulated by the needles to promote the smooth flow of energy throughout the body benefiting the body systems including the reproductive, digestive, respiratory and circulatory systems among others.  Acupuncture has been a very effective recourse for fertility problems among women.

Women are more prone to emotional stress than men and traditional Chinese medicine believes this factor is the major causes of women’s specific fertility problems.  Stress causes energy imbalances in the body; with acupuncture these imbalances can be properly addressed.  Besides infertility problems like polycystic ovary syndrome, endometriosis and amenorrhea, female disorders such as fibrocystic breasts can be treated with acupuncture.  Acupuncture works be removing energy blockages in the meridians, increasing oxygen supply to the tissues and cells, improves blood and lymph circulation and relaxes stiff and tense muscles – all major causes of infertility and other female disorders.  Also, it helps regulates hormonal function to help minimize any risks of miscarriage as well as boost immune system strength.

Pregnancy is the time when a woman turns to natural healthy medical alternatives for herself and her baby’s health. Even during pregnancy, the use of acupuncture can take away the uncomfortable effects of pregnancy such as depression, anxiety, heart burn, constipation, lower back pain and morning sickness.  As the time for labor approaches, it preps up the female to make child delivery as pain-free and smooth as possible.

Those who wish to avail of acupuncture should first consult a physician, particularly a gynecologist if the woman is pregnant or wants to get pregnant.  It is similarly important to select an acupuncturist who is licensed and experienced in dealing with women’s fertility issues and pregnancy.  It would be much better if the acupuncturist specializes in fertility and pregnancy issues.  The patient must follow the advice of the acupuncturist at all times.  Today, there are a number of physicians who are practicing medical acupuncturists.  If your doctor is one, then it is wise that you get acupuncture treatment from him/her.  This doctor will be highly aware of the do’s and don’ts of acupuncture treatment especially if the patient is already pregnant.  Getting acupuncture treatment during pregnancy can lead to certain risks like premature induced labor if the acupuncturist is not trained enough to ably practice this beneficial but highly potent treatment.  Under the hands of a licensed and highly trained acupuncturist, infertility problems are easily remedied and pregnancy issues ably resolved.
