Acupuncture effective for the treatment of premature ovarian failure

Controlled studies find acupuncture effective for the treatment of premature ovarian failure (primary ovarian insufficiency). This condition is characterized by the loss of normal ovarian function prior to the age of 40. The average age of onset is 27. Research measures the efficacy of acupuncture in the regulation of hormone levels, reduction of anxiety and other forms of mental stress, and the ability of acupuncture to alleviate menopausal related symptoms. Importantly, the research demonstrates that acupuncture is effective in restoring endogenous estrogen production. Premature ovarian failure (POF) results in hormone insufficiency or lack of regularity of egg release, often resulting...

Acupuncture increases the efficaciousness of fertility treatment and lowers side effects

Acupuncture boosts the efficaciousness of fertility treatments. Three independent studies confirm that acupuncture increases positive patient outcome rates. Two studies find acupuncture effective for increasing the the efficacy of clomifene for the treatment of infertility due to ovulatory dysfunction. Another study finds acupuncture effective for reducing the adverse effects caused by bromocriptine treatments for hyperprolactinemia related infertility. The study also confirms that acupuncture balances hormone levels. Ovulatory Dysfunction Ovulatory dysfunction accounts for approximately 25–30% of female infertility. The root of ovulatory dysfunction is related to disorders of the hypothalamic–pituitary–gonadal axis (HPG axis) because it is closely related to the uterine...

Chinesische Kräutermedizin bei ungeklärten wiederholten Fehlgeburten

Wiederholte Fehlgeburten werden definiert als zwei, drei oder mehr aufeinander folgende spontane Fehlgeburten in der Frühschwangerschaft und betreffen eine kleine Anzahl (1 bis 3 %) von Frauen im gebärfähigen Alter. Viele Schwangere erkennen eine Fehlgeburt möglicherweise nicht, bis Gebärmutterblutungen und Krämpfe nach der 10. Schwangerschaftswoche auftreten. Nach der ersten Fehlgeburt besteht ein Risiko für wiederholte Fehlgeburten und die Chancen auf eine erfolgreiche Schwangerschaft variieren. Gelegentlich liegen wiederholten Fehlgeburten bestimmte Ursachen zugrunde, wobei sowohl mütterliche als auch fetale (kindliche) Faktoren eine Rolle spielen; spezielle Behandlungen dieser Ursachen sind in diesen Fällen wirksam. Jedoch ist es möglich, dass die zugrundeliegenden Ursachen nicht erkannt...

Electrical acupoint stimulation improves IVF outcomes

Transcutaneous electrical acupoint stimulation (TEAS) may help improve IVF outcomes, according to a study by Chinese and British researchers. Four hundred and eighty-one infertile patients with bilateral tubal blockage who were referred for IVF were randomised into four groups; a TEAS-2Hz group, a TEAS-100Hz group, a TEAS-2/100Hz group and a control group who received routine IVF treatment only. TEAS (which uses self-adhesive electrodes instead of needles to stimulate acupoints) was administered once for 30 minutes, 24 hours before transvaginal oocyte retrieval, and once two hours before embryo transfer (ET). Acupoints included bilateral Xuehai SP-10, Diji SP-8, Taichong LIV-3, Zusanli ST-36,...

Electroacupuncture improves ovarian reserve

Electro-acupuncture (EA) may improve reproductive hormone levels in patients with diminished ovarian reserve (DOR), according to preliminary research from China. Twenty-one patients with DOR received EA over 12 weeks (five times a week for four weeks, followed by three times a week for eight weeks). Standardised EA treatment was provided using two alternating point prescriptions: A (Zhongliao BL-33) and B (Tianshu ST-25, Zigong M-CA-18 and Zhongji REN-4). Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) levels were observed to fall by almost half from baseline to week 12, and this decrease persisted until 12 weeks post-treatment, with no significant side effects.

Infertility Treatment With Acupuncture & Herbs

A new clinical study concludes that acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine have potent effects in reversing infertility. Several types of patients suffering from infertility participated in the study including those using IVF, IUI and those using no biomedical assistance. All types showed significantly improved successful pregnancy rates. The researchers cited prior investigations measuring the biological mechanisms by which acupuncture enhances fertility. The researchers note that beta-endorphins and related neurotransmitters stimulated by acupuncture causes the secretion of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH). This exerts a regulatory effect on the menstrual cycle and ovulation. Acupuncture has been shown to enhance the micro-circulation of blood...

Pflanzliche Heilmittel gegen Unfruchtbarkeit beim Mann

Etwa 10 % aller Paare sind von Unfruchtbarkeit und einem unerfüllten Kinderwunsch betroffen. Dabei ist das Oligo-Astheno-Teratozoospermie-Syndrom (OAT-Syndrom) die häufigste Fruchtbarkeitsstörung bei Männern. Beim OAT-Syndrom sind zu wenige Spermien vorhanden, welche zudem unbeweglicher und fehlgebildet sind. Zudem entsteht eine erhöhte Fragmentierung also eine Zerstörung der DNA in den Spermien. Das OAT-Syndrom kann unterschiedliche Ursachen haben. Eine italienische Studie untersuchte nun die Effizienz eines neuen Medikaments, welches sich aus verschiedenen pflanzlichen Wirkstoffen zusammensetzt. Dafür wurden 60 Männer mit OAT-Syndrom und damit verbundener Unfruchtbarkeit in 2 Gruppen eingeteilt. Die erste Gruppe wurde mit einer täglichen Dosis von 1000 mg Myo-Inositol, 300 mg...

Prior to Conception: The Role of an Acupuncture Protocol in Improving Women’s Reproductive Functioning Assessed by a Pilot Pragmatic Randomised Controlled Trial

ABSTRACT The global average of couples with fertility problems is 9%. Assisted reproductive technologies are often inaccessible. Evidence points to acupuncture offering an opportunity to promote natural fertility. This study asked whether providing a multiphasic fertility acupuncture protocol to women with sub/infertility would increase their awareness of fertility and achieve normalisation of their menstrual cycle compared with a lifestyle control. In a pragmatic randomised controlled trial sub/infertile women were offered an intervention of acupuncture and lifestyle modification or lifestyle modification only. There was a statistically significant increase in fertility awareness in the acupuncture group (86.4%, 19) compared to 40% (...

Verbesserung der Spermienqualität durch Pro- und Präbiotika

Bei einer Oligoasthenoteratozoospermie besteht eine Einschränkung der Zeugungsfähigkeit des Mannes, die unterschiedlich stark ausgeprägt sein kann. Im Spermiogramm existiert eine Kombination aus einer zu geringen Anzahl an Spermien, die zudem zu wenig beweglich und fehlgebildet sind. In der Studie von Maretti et al. (2017) wurde untersucht, ob die Gabe eines Präparates aus Pro- und Präbiotika bei Männern mit idiopathischer (ohne fassbare Ursache entstehend) Oligoasthenoteratozoospermie zu einer Verbesserung von Qualität und Quantität der Spermien beitragen kann. 41 Patienten mit idiopathischer Oligoasthenoteratozoospermie nahmen an der Studie teil, bei der 20 Patienten für die Dauer von 6 Monaten täglich das Präparat aus Pro-...
