Acupuncture Can Help Treat Infertility?

 

Can acupuncture actually cure infertility?Find out Friday, March, 22nd as Charlotte View interviews Acupuncturist and Oriental Medicine specialist, Margot Dragon of the Whitespire Center  of Oriental Medicine. Margot has a masters degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, from the American College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Houston, Texas, is certified in Genetics and Biomedical research from UCLA and NIH, and is a licensed acupuncturist in North Carolina.   Her training includes over 3000 hours of lecture in both Oriental and Western medicine, along with herbal and clinical practice.
According to the American Fertility Association website, "Some studies show that acupuncture can help fertility by reducing the effects of stress and balancing the hormones. It may increase blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, increase the uterine lining, prevent the uterus from contracting, lessen the side effects of drugs used in IVF, strengthen the immune system, decrease chances of miscarriage, and improve quality, quantity, and motility of sperm."
So who is a good candidate for acupuncture to treat infertility? The website, Fertility Pro Registry, lists those dealing with the following conditions below as possible candidates:

So, I ask you again, will acupuncture cure infertility? Well, Dr. Eric Surrey, president of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) in an article for Foxnews.com stated, "there is absolutely nothing to show that it's harmful if it's done with a trained and appropriately skilled acupuncturist," [and that], "It's a notion that nearly everyone in the medical field — whether they believe in needles and Qi or not — seems to agree upon.".

Listen this Friday, March 22nd as Charlotte View asks Margot Dragon how acupuncture may be able to help you have a baby.
