How Acupuncture Treats Male Infertility
In many cultures, women are unfairly blamed for the inability of a couple to conceive. In reality, men suffer from infertility issues just as frequently as women.
Male fertility requires normal sperm production and transport, adequate sexual performance, and normal levels of testosterone. According to conventional medicine, male infertility can be due to a number of factors including abnormal spermatogenesis, reproductive tract anomalies or obstruction; inadequate sexual and ejaculatory functions, or impaired sperm motility. Mental health, stress, lifestyle choices, medications, and other conditions such as diabetes, cancers, and vascular diseases may also lead to fertility issues.
The conventional treatment of lifestyle changes, counselling, medication, or surgical procedures has been sufficient for 75% of men. For those seeking a less invasive treatment strategy towards fertility; acupuncture, moxibustion, or herbal formulas have been proven to be a successful approach. Acupuncture focuses on treating the health of the mind and body as one entity which makes it an effective therapy for those that are diagnosed with psychogenic erectile dysfunction.
Acupuncture improves male infertility by:
- regulating scrotal temperature
- boosting local microcirculation
- reducing inflammation
- increasing testosterone levels
- increase energy levels and better-quality sleep
- eases mental health symptoms and stress management
