Fertility Acupuncture Brisbane Northside
In Brisbane, mothers to be are increasingly turning to acupuncture to help them to solve their fertility issues.
There are several reasons why couples are having troubles getting pregnant, such as endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), autoimmune disorders, irregular periods, and infertility issues. Women who would like to conceive but would not want to take medications or undergo surgery can opt to take a natural treatment – the fertility acupuncture.
In traditional Chinese medicine, the inability to conceive is known as “Bu Yun”, which means “unable to hold”. Fertility treatments have been traced in China as early as 200 A.D. Fertility acupuncture is believed to search for the imbalances of the Ying and Yang to restore the health of the body.
Fertility acupuncture operates on a holistic approach to address difficulties in conception. The mind, body, and spirit are examined, signs and symptoms that indicate imbalance in the body are identified, and the imbalances are corrected.
How Does Acupuncture Help in Fertility?
Fertility acupuncture has helped couples who are having a hard time to conceive on the following areas of concerns:
- Increasing blood flow to the uterus
- Development of mature and healthy eggs cells
- Reducing stress and anxiety
- Regulating ovulation and menstrual cycles
- Improving the quality of sperm cells in terms of concentration and volume
Other than these noticeable changes in the body’s physical condition, the treatment can also help address the following fertility issues when combined with the traditional Chinese medicine.
- Irregular menstruation
- Absence of menstruation
- Blockage of the fallopian tube
- Autoimmune issues
What Happens During the Treatment?
To prepare the body of the couple for pregnancy, the potential problem areas are investigated in detail such as:
- Menstrual cycle (including regularity, color of blood, presence of pain, mood swings, headache, among others)
- Sleep Cycle
- Emotional Health
- Physical Health
- Health History
After the assessment, a treatment plan will be designed for the patient. Depending on the condition, the recommendation would be either regular acupuncture sessions or acupressure massage. Herbal medicine may also be recommended.
The acupuncture sessions are tailored to the body imbalances identified and to suit present state of well-being of the patient. Sessions are usually taken an hour every week and herbal medicine and supplements are to be taken for at least six consecutive months.
Are There Any Side Effects in this Kind of Treatment?
The fertility acupuncture treatment produces little to no side effects, as well as the herbal medicine and supplements given to the patient. In fact, the treatment stimulates the hypothalamus to balance the endocrine system and the hormones to address infertility issues among men and women.
Best of all, the treatment is natural and time-tested. The Eastern culture has proven its effectiveness and trying it for conception might be worth the shot.
