IVF Acupuncture FAQs

 IVF Acupuncture research can be confusing, with the majority of research previously focused on treatment applied only at the time of embryo transfer. That and varying information on forums and in conversations abounds.

More recent research now suggests most benefit is achieved with a higher “dose” of acupuncture prior to and during the IVF cycle.


So, what does this research suggest in terms of best practice IVF Acupuncture to optimise psychological and physiological benefits and when should I start?


1. Commencement

The evidence denotes that:

  • if you are going to use acupuncture it may be advisable for to have it before and during the stimulation phase of the IVF cycle.
  • it is useful for women to consider acupuncture treatment in the menstrual cycles before their IVF cycle, or before a frozen embryo transfer to improve the uterine lining.


2. How many sessions

The most recent Meta-analysis showed there is a relationship between the acupuncture treatment dose and pregnancy rate with higher dose acupuncture before embryo transfer showing a significant benefit and increased pregnancy rate.


In studies where more than three treatments were performed, the clinical pregnancy rate significantly improved (N=8 / n=1595, RR 1.50, 95% CI 1.18–1.90, P=0.001) (Smith 2019).


One 2015 study by Hullender showed that acupuncture administered to IVF patients at a dose of 9-12 treatments prior to embryo transfer is associated with more live births.


Further, Hullender analysed the outcomes of more than a thousand IVF cycles and found that women who used Chinese Medicine (acupuncture with or without herbs), had a higher live birth rate than those doing IVF alone.


How much higher?

The proportion of live births was 61.3% in the Chinese Medicine group and 48.2% in the usual IVF care group and 50.8% in the group having acupuncture only on day of Embryo transfer.


3. When should I book in?

  • Ideally, 1 month before your start your IVF cycle.

  • I advocate bi-weekly treatment for 4 weeks prior to IVF cycle and 2 weeks during stimulation cycle.

  • Electro-Acupuncture may be used during IVF stimulation and/or prior to Frozen embryo transfer.






4. Day of transfer acupuncture

Acupuncture on the day of embryo transfer has significant benefit for women who have increased stress levels or who have had multiple previous IVF cycles, or where there was a low baseline pregnancy rate expectation (Smith 2018).


Continuing this approach in the two-week wait for test results is also helpful for these women to manage IVF related stress and anxiety.

  • Embryo Transfer acupuncture (ETA) is best done on the same day (or within 24 hours if on same day is not possible).

______________________________________________________


These recommendations have put together drawing on the most recent research findings (including a 2019 Meta-analysis, 2018 randomized controlled trials and 2016 Retrospective Cohort study).


These research-based recommendations aim to clarify:

  1. When to start acupuncture and how many Acupuncture treatments may be of benefit.

  2. Considerations surrounding Embryo Transfer Acupuncture (ETA) and acupuncture in the wait between embryo transfer and pregnancy blood test.

Two powerful Points to Boost Our Immune System

Looking for a natural way to boost your immune system? If you’re feeling stressed out, super busy, or you’re not getting enough sleep, this can make you more likely to get sick. Fortunately, your body has its own built-in system to keep you in balance.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), there are 12 primary energy pathways or channels running through your body. These channels influence your energy levels, mental clarity, digestion, overall health, emotions, and more. There are ways to “reboot” and strengthen the system to keep your body healthy and strong.


Two Powerful Immune-Boosting Points

Your body has two pressure points that help strengthen your body whenever you’re feeling run down and need a quick boost for your immune system. Practice these points daily—they take just 5 to 10 minutes to massage—and they’ll give your body a surge of qi (life force energy) to help keep colds and flus away during stressful times.

1. Chinese Reflexology Point for the Lung


The Lung reflexology point is an outstanding standalone point for boosting your Lung qi, which then helps to disperse the wei qi throughout your body to fortify your body’s protective barrier against germs.

2. Chinese Acupuncture Point: Stomach 36 – Zu San Li

                                             

This acupressure point is a classic that is commonly used by acupuncturists for treating patients for a wide range of conditions. This point is especially powerful for improving digestion and for boosting the immune system. It’s also used to treat a long list of conditions, including: stomach pain, hiccups, bloating, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, and mastitis.

11 Health Benefits of Reflexology and Foot Massage

The foot is believed to have specific reflex points,which under stimulation can help the body heal itself.Reflexology and foot massage are now commonly used in alternative medicine, as it is considered very safe and likely to benefit you.
Here's the list of 11 health benefits of reflexology and foot massage:

  • Improves Nerve Sensitivity.
  • Improves Energy Levels.

ACUPUNCTURE & REFLEXOLOGY FOR CHRONIC FATIGUE



It is estimated that over 50% of the Canadian population experiences chronic fatigue. The most common causes are stress, overwork, insomnia, depression, and various malfunctions in the major systems of the body (endocrine, cardiovascular, digestive, etc.) . There are many wonderful alternative treatment options that include acupuncture, herbs, nutrition, and exercise. Acupuncture tops the list because it tends to be so effective is supplementing the body’s energy.

ACUPUNCTURE 

The majority of patients who complain of fatigue suffer from a deficiency of vital energy (Qi). Qi is the basic energy that creates optimal physiological and neurological function. Aside from fatigue, other signs of Qi deficiency are diarrhea, pallor, easy bruising, excessive sleep (more than 9 hrs. a night), scanty menses or amenorrhea, frequent urination, low libido, and shortness of breath. The strategy of Chinese medicine is to identify a pattern of disharmony that reflects the entirety of one’s symptoms, pulse qualities, and tongue appearance.  We recommend weekly acupuncture treatments for 4-6 weeks, then assessing for progress. Combining with some herbs or reflexology is also available at Oriental Ensure Acupuncture & Massage Clinic

REFLEXOLOGY

10 Reasons to try Reflexology

3 Chinese Acupressure Points to Boost Your Energy Levels

HERBS 

Qi deficiency primarily affects 4 different organs: the spleen, kidney, heart, and lungs. Here are symptoms and herbal treatment options for each pattern:

Spleen: diarrhea, loose stools, bloating, bruising, fatigue, prolapse, laconic speech, internal cold
Herbal Formula: Bu zhong yi qi tang

Kidney: low back pain, low libido, fatigue, internal cold, frequent urination
Herbal Formula: Jin gui shen qi wan

Heart: restless sleep, worry, fatigue, heart palpitations, shortness of breath
Herbal Formula: Gui pi tang

Lung: chronic cough, weak immunity, allergies, fatigue, shortness of breath, asthma
Herbal formula: Bu fei tang

Adaptogenic herbs such as rhodiola rosea, ashwaganda, and ginseng may be helpful adjuncts .

SUPPLEMENTS 

B Complex: B vitamins are warming and energizing. They build Qi and blood.

Tyrosine: precursor to norepinephrine (often deficient in chronic fatigue)

5HTP: precursor to serotonin, for deeper sleep, weight loss, anxiety

Adrenosen by Health Concerns and Adrenotone by Designs for Health are both effective adrenal tonics for fatigue due to adrenal burnout.

EXERCISE 

20-30 minutes of exercise 4-5 times a week. At first, this may feel forced and difficult because you won’t want to exercise when you feel tired. After a few days, however, your body will begin to love the endorphin release and serotonin boost that exercise provides. Exercise alone can be a wonderful cure for fatigue. Your program should be a combination of cardiovascular and restorative exercise. Cardiovascular exercise involves running, biking, swimming, hiking, etc. Restorative exercise involves yoga, tai chi, or qi gong.

IDENTIFYING WHERE YOU LEAK YOUR ENERGY 

Many people with chronic fatigue can attribute this pattern to a central theme that is stealing their energy. Perhaps you are in a marriage that is not working or a job that feels stagnant. Maybe you have set your life up so that you never have time for yourself because you are too busy caring for others. Or maybe you have financial problems that make life feel burdensome. Low energy is often a sign that we are not in control of our life, whether it is in relationships, work, with our health or with our money. Set an intention to heal any area of your life that is spiraling out of control and that feels toxic to you.

There are many wonderful treatment options for chronic fatigue. This article is not intended to cover this issue in its entirety, as there can certainly be other factors involved in fatigue (immune dysfunction, low level pathogenic influences, etc.) The key is to be proactive in treating this condition.
