Research in reproductive health has shown dramatic clinical effects from the use of Chinese medicine and acupuncture. In an issue of Fertility and Sterility, it was reported that a study of the effects of acupuncture with IVF to show IVF success was increased from 26.3% in the control group to 42.5% in the acupuncture group.
The British Medical Journal published the results of a study showing the effectiveness of using acupuncture during IVF. It compared results of women who underwent acupuncture, those who were given sham acupuncture treatments, and those who had no extra therapy. Those who received acupuncture increased their chances of conceiving by 65%!
Acupuncture has been shown to improve the quantity and quality of sperm. An Israeli study at the Bar-Ilan University involved 20 males with fertility problems. It is concluded that acupuncture may be a useful, non-traumatic treatment for males with very poor sperm density.
An increasing weight of evidence from Western scientific research is demonstrating the effectiveness of acupuncture for treating a wide variety of conditions.
From a biomedical viewpoint, acupuncture is believed to stimulate the nervous system, influencing the production of the body's communication substances - hormones and neurotransmitters. The resulting biochemical changes activate the body's self-regulating homeostatic systems, stimulating its natural healing abilities and promoting physical and emotional wellbeing.
