Preparation of your body and mind in readiness for your fertility treatment is probably more important than when you are trying naturally. Along with advice on lifestyle changes, including nutritional advice and emotional support, I use acupuncture to reduce both stress and anxiety levels, which is particularly helpful around this time.
I like to take an integrated approach and usually offer life style advice as well using acupuncture, moxabustion, electro-acupuncture and far infra red heat lamps.
My approach is to focus on the blood supply for at least 3 months before the IUI, IVF or ICSI process begins as preparation. I encourage flooding the blood with nutrition needed for optimum fertility and hormonal balance through detoxing and supplements and the best foods to eat dependant on TCM theory.
In addition I use acupuncture to work on:
Improving blood circulation to the pelvic organs, including the ovaries and uterus, allowing the reproductive organs to work to their full potential
Increasing blood circulation to the uterus ensures optimal endometrial thickness
Reducing stress by decreasing the activity of the sympathetic nervous system. High stress levels are associated with reduced chances of conceiving as they can have an impact on hormonal balance.
Support of each stage of the IUI, IVF or ICSI process
