A woman's body goes through many cycles in the course of a lifetime. From the onset of puberty, to pregnancy, and finally menopause, with years of menstruation in between, a woman's body and hormones are in a constant state of change. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) can restore balance at any stage of a woman's life. TCM has been proven to have a positive effect on the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, the body's mechanism that is responsible for keeping the female reproductive system in balance.
Women's health issues respond exceptionally well to TCM. Today, traditional protocols are combined with advances in Western medical science to maximize the success of treatments.
Acupuncture & IVF
According to statistics, 9.3 million American women are currently using assisted reproductive technology (ART) services to help them cope with fertility issues. One of the most widely used is in vitro fertilization (IVF).
A widely published recent German study found that using acupuncture with IVF achieved a 42% clinical pregnancy rate compared to only 26% in the control group that did not receive acupuncture. Although acupuncture is based on Chinese medical theory, a modern and scientific neuroendocrine perspective has also begun to confirm its efficacy.
