Acupuncture for Fertility

There has been extensive research that shows that acupuncture is an effective treatment for improving fertility and reproductive health. Acupuncture has been successfully integrated with conventional fertility treatments, like IVF, for many years.

Acupuncture helps fertility by improving your general health and well-being, increasing circulation to the reproductive organs, correcting the balance of the menstrual cycle, and improving the quality of your eggs and the lining of the uterus. Acupuncture is also recognised to help with other conditions such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, and endometriosis.

Acupuncture also improves fertility by reducing the levels of unhelpful hormones, such as cortizol, that is produced by stress and anxiety, and increases the levels of helpful hormones, such as beta-endorphins, that have a calming effect and can increase blood flow around the body.

An article published in the British Medical Journal dated March 2008 entitled
“Effects of acupuncture on rates of pregnancy and live birth among women undergoing in vitro fertilisation: systematic review and meta-analysis”.
Concludes
“Current preliminary evidence suggests that acupuncture given with embryo transfer improves rates of pregnancy and live birth among women undergoing in vitro fertilisation.”

I found Nuala when I was looking for an affordable doctor in Kingston to help me when trying for a baby. I had had a few complications since the birth of my first child and was struggling to conceive and the fertility tests were not picking up when I was ovulating. Nuala rebalanced my system (with the bonus of helping with sleep/stress and neck pain at the same time) and within two months I was pregnant! She also helped me prepare for labour and with her input I managed the natural healthy birth I had hoped for.
