Acupuncture to Improve Fertility
As an affiliated acupuncturist to the Zita West fertility clinics and a founder member of Dublin’s first integrated fertility clinic called Achieve Fertility . I have gained a huge amount of valuable experience in this area. I have successfully worked with many couples to enable them to conceive and have healthy babies. If you need help getting pregnant naturally I can help to regulate your menstrual cycle, improve egg /sperm quality. This will ensure that you are both in the best possible health to get pregnant. Thus you can nurture and sustain a healthy pregnancy throughout. As a Hypnotherapist and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) practitioner I now have more methods to help you with various aspects of your reproductive journey. It is believed that up to 95% of fertility is related to unconscious beliefs and /or states of mind.
Acupuncture increases fertility rates by:
- Increasing blood flow to the uterus and ovaries
- Thicken’s the endometrial lining
- Reduces the chance of miscarriage
- Regulate and stabilise hormone levels
- Help produce more follicles
- Strengthen the immune system and the overall health of your body
- Help developing foetus absorb nutrients and maintain ideal weight
- Faciliate relaxation & Reduce stress
- Improve the quality of sleep so you have more energy throughout the day
- Prevent Postpartum Depression
Improve fertility test results
If you are concerned about high FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) or low AMH (anti mullerian hormone) levels indicating low fertility. Acupuncture and lifestyle changes can improve these results and thus your chances of conceiving. It is important to remember that factors such as vitamin D levels can dramatically reduce your AMH levels. If you are planning on having investigative tests such as these please be prepared for the results and the possible impacts they may have on you emotionally and your self esteem. It is important therefore to be in the best condition before having these tests, I will help you to be in prime condition and hopefully avoid the need for these investigations. I have observed that many couples believe they have problems conceiving and go straight for the medical intervention route before they have exhausted less intrusive methods to optimise their fertility.
If you undergoing A.R.T (Artificial Fertility Techniques) such as IVF (in vitro fertilization) and ICSI (Intracytoplasmic sperm injection). I will work with you throughout the whole process, especially at the all important stages prior to egg retrieval and following embryo transfer. I have had great success in this area which supports a number of scientific studies showing that acupuncture increases the chances of a live birth following IVF by up to 65%,.
