How Can Acupuncture Help With Stress and Infertility?

City life can be stressful at times. Life can even be more stressful during major life changes—and trying to conceive can be affected by stress levels. Short of pressing the pause button on life, how does one prevent stress from getting in the way of changing it?

Stress is a response to demands on the body and mind. Trying to relax is, more often than not, easier said than done. We humans are animals, and the fight or flight response can kick in even in non-threatening situations. When survival instincts kick in, they can sometimes be tough to shut off. Taking the subway, sitting in traffic, financial concerns or feeling overwhelmed by work demands are just a few of the ways modern day to day existence can cause us stress. While infertility can be the result of a myriad of factors, finding the root cause can help reverse the side effects. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t become pregnant the moment you try. Traditional Chinese Medicine can provide a different insight to unexplained infertility. Physical and mental balance can be attained using acupuncture, herbs and other related therapies. No matter how egg and sperm are joining, all participants should address their fertility. Traditional Chinese Medicine prepares the body and mind of both women and men to conceive.
