Acupuncture for PCOS: How This Natural Treatment Can Help

Try Acupuncture for Increased Fertility


pregnant womanToo often the human body is viewed as a many separate parts that work in concert because they are in proximity of each other, yet are not really connected. However, a holistic approach to health, where all the systems are connected, is a more effective one. When that concept is accepted, trying acupuncture for fertility is an obvious solution for people who have exhausted the majority of the conventional options.

Scientifically speaking, infertility, along with other medical conditions, largely comes from the body being out of balance. The main goal of acupuncture is to put the body back in balance, so the body is able to conceive and carry a pregnancy. Balancing the body with acupuncture has been scientifically proven and effective. This ancient and established medical system has a magnificent effect on fertility.

A study of 225 women was conducted at the University of Witten, in Germany. These women volunteered to be study subjects because they had difficulty conceiving. The study divided them into two groups. The first group of women were given conventional fertility treatments. The second group of women were given these identical treatments, with acupuncture as an adjunct therapy.

At the conclusion of the study, 13.8% of women in the first group became pregnant. The women in the second group, the women who took a holistic approach to fertility via acupuncture, had a pregnancy rate of 28.4%, which is more than twice as much as the control group.

Acupuncture for PCOS

PCOS, or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, is one of the leading causes of infertility in women. Those with the syndrome do not ovulate on a normal cycle, which has a number of effects on the body. Aside from infertility, the condition can also cause a number of other health issues , including:

  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Acne
  • Weight gain
  • High blood pressure
  • Ovarian cysts

However, there is hope for those who suffer from PCOS.

Traditional medicines can be used to treat some of the symptoms and effects of PCOS. However, like any medicines, these can come along with unwanted side effects such as fatigue or nausea. A more natural and effective way to treat PCOS is available – acupuncture.

A variety of studies have shown that acupuncture is successful in treating PCOS. Acupuncture involves using needles to stimulate different parts of the body. In the case of PCOS, this stimulation can be used to send signals to the brain to slow the release of male hormones into the body. Less male hormones means your body will have an easier time getting back into a normal menstrual cycle.

One study published by the American Journal of Physiology, Endocrinology and Metabolism tested 32 women with the condition to see if acupuncture actually helped. The study showed that those who received acupuncture treatments had more success in improving their menstrual cycle than those that didn’t.
