Acupuncture boosts the effectiveness of high-tech reproductive medical procedures. Clinical studies have found that adding acupuncture to traditional in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments increased pregnancy success. There is also evidence that acupuncture stimulates blood flow and egg production in women who cannot or decline to use fertility medications to help them get pregnant Studies have shown a clear link between acupuncture and the body’s natural ‘feel good’ brain chemicals (endorphins).
Acupuncture also appears to affect two areas of the brain that control hormone production (the hypothalamus and pituitary glands) as well as the ovaries. Acupuncture may also ‘boost’ the uterine lining when it is too weak to sustain a pregnancy, a problem known to increase the risk of miscarriage.
