This short video at WebMD follows the case of Justine Ickes, a 40 year old woman who is trying to conceive. Justine was told that she had less than a 5% chance of conceiving naturally. Before Justine considered in vitro fertilization or adoption, she tried acupuncture. Acupuncture helped Justine successfully conceive her first child!
A growing collection of evidence – in both client feedback and professional studies – is showing that the ancient practice of acupuncture is an effective therapy to improve fertility, conception, and pregnancy. Recent studies have shown that acupuncture increases blood flow to the uterus, normalizes ovulation, and reduces stress hormones – all factors that improve fertility.
