May was a very fertile month for us here at the Kokin Healing Center! Eight patients reported pregnancy following fertility acupuncture and herbal medicine! Some patients also combined fertility acupuncture with an IUI cycle or IVF cycle.
It is truly exciting to have so many positive results in such a short time. Undue stress while trying to conceive creates inflammation in the body and can throw off hormone levels. Trying to conceive in itself can be a stressful process for many, and I can say that 100% of patients who combine acupuncture with any other fertility treatment report of sense of deep relaxation and peace of mind. Not many people know this, but acupuncture has a very strong effect of stimulating serotonin production along with neurotransmitters that make the body and mind very relaxed. That is why it is very important to keep your stress to a minimum. Having a regular exercise routine and / or practicing yoga or meditation is another great method for reducing stress and inducing serotonin at home, as well.
