To understand why acupuncture can help infertility we must first become familiar with Chinese culture and tradition. One of the important duties for Chinese doctors is to help patients conceive and have their own babies. This practice dates back at least 2,000 years. Chinese doctors have spent centuries developing a practice for infertility issues for both men and women. In the past years, we have helped many infertility patients ranging from the ages 30-45, naturally without IVF or IUI. We helped patients get pregnant naturally with our protocol at ages 45, 47 and even 49. In the last 40 days, at our clinic, we’ve had 4 out of 7 couples get pregnant. Three of these couples became pregnant naturally, ages 34-37, who were heading for IVF procedure. The reality of acupuncture helping infertility issues in our daily practice as seen in countless clinics, indicates that acupuncture is working very well.
