Is acupuncture a good treatment for female fertility problems>
I have been using successfuly a unique method of combining acupuncture with Chinese herbal medicine and homeopathy to help many women and men with infertility issues
Using only acupuncture,Chinese herbal medicine and homeopathy I treat a wide spectrum of conditions, including endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, "unexplained" or "secondary" infertility,' and male fertility issues (low sperm count). I can also help increase the chances of success at IVF/IUI as well as offering support to women during pregnancy and childbirth. I have 25 years experience in acupuncture for the treatment fertility, and all the conditions associated with pregnancy and afterbirth
My two children were born naturally with the help of acupuncture and homeopathy
Acupuncture is often successful in triggering a birth when the pregnancy is past 40 or 41 weeks
The first important studies on this subject was carried in 2002 by Wolfgang E. Paulus, M.D.,[a] Mingmin Zhang, M.D et Al , and was followed by many across the world.
In February 2008, Dr Eric Manheimer, Grant Zhang, Laurence Udoff et Al published a meta-analysis of 108 studies, from which seven were selectedfor their sound scientific basis.
The encouraging result indicate that acupuncture almost double the rate of success of IVF (from 26.3% to 42.5% ) in the Paulus study, and increase the rate by 65% in the more recent research from Manheimer.
Male and female infertility are complex problems, to improve the general health as well as the fertility of my client, I often combine acupuncture with chinese Herbal medicine and/or homeopathy for better and quicker results.
