Acupuncture produces amazing results in reversing infertility

Of all the available treatments for infertility, acupuncture isn’t one that people usually think of first. But as you’ll see here, it’s actually one of the safest and most effectiveness treatments for infertility known to modern science.
Why does it work so well? Because infertility isn’t usually a physical problem. It’s often an issue related to circulation or energy channels that govern the vitality of your body’s organs (including reproductive organs). Rebalancing those bioelectric channels can create enormous healing changes in the function of your reproductive organs.
And the best part? Acupuncture is non-invasive, surprisingly. The needles themselves are virtually painless and barely enter the skin. That’s a huge contrast to the highly invasive (and embarrassing) probing, inserting, extracting, injecting and poking around typically undertaken by conventional infertility clinics.

Referrals to the Chiropractic Lifestyle

The best way to thank your doctor is to tell others. The ultimate compliment. When you tell a friend about chiropractic, you offer encouragement. When you tell a work associate about chiropractic, you offer direction. When you tell a loved one about chiropractic, you offer hope. Encouragement. Direction. Hope. Each is part of the healing process. So when you tell others about the positive experience you've had in this office, you're using some of the same methods the best doctors use. This office depends upon informed patients to share the chiropractic message with others. We're counting on you to dispel the myths and overcome the incorrect notions many of your friends have about chiropractic care. If we can help, we will tell them. If we cannot, we will refer them to other specialists, if their problem is outside the scope of our practice. Together, we make a great team.

Safety of a Chiropractic Lifestyle

How safe is Chiropratic? How do you define safe? Even with clear warnings in the media and sun screening produces, 6,000 people will die this year from skin cancer. Chiropractic care is much safer then getting a so-called "healthy" tan. Many people take aspirin, ibuprofen, muscle relaxers, and other pain relief drugs. Besides covering up the symptoms and ignoring the underlying causes, 4,000 people will die this year from reactions to medically prescribed drugs. Chiropractic care is much safer then drug therapy. While commercial airplane mishaps get a lot of publicity, estimates suggest that fewer than 300 people will die this year from flying on commercial aircraft. Chiropractic in much safer than flying. Every year about 100 people get struck by lightning. Chiropractic is safer than being caught in a thunderstorm. In fact, of the millions of patients who will benefit fromm chiropractic care this year, only a handful will have a newsworthy experience. Is chiropractic care safe? Yes! Especially when compared with other forms of treatment.

Disc Injuries

While the intervertebral disc is a common culprit in spine-related health problems, its function is widely misunderstood. The disc is a small cartilage pad that is situated between spinal bones. The soft jellylike center is contained by surrounding layers of fibrous tissues. Each disc serves as a connector, space, and shock absorber for the spine. When healthy, discs allow normal turning and bending. Since spinal discs have a very poor blood supply, they depend upon the circulation of joints fluids to bring in nutrients and expel waste. If a spinal joint loses its normal motion or position and this pumping action is impaired, the health of the disc can deteriorate. Like a wet sponge, a healthy disc is flexible. A dry sponge is hard, stiff, and can crack easily. This is how many disc problems begin. Because of the was each disc is attached to the vertebrae above and below it, a disc cannot "slip" as commonly thought. However, trauma or injury can cause discs to bulge, herniate, or worse, rupture. This can be quite painful, putting pressure on the spinal cord and nerve roots, interfering with their function. The chiropractic approach to disc problems is to help restore better motion and position to the spinal joints. Besides reducing disc bulging, better spinal function can help decrease inflammation and begin he slow process of healing in the surrounding soft tissue. While results cannot be guaranteed, many patients have avoided needless surgery or a dependency on pain pills, by choosing conservative chiropractic care.

Acupuncture is an ancient technique in which a skilled practitioner inserts hair-thin needles into specific points on the body to prevent or treat illness. Practiced for over 2,500 years in China, where it originated, acupuncture is part of the holistic system of traditional Chinese medicine (TMC), which views health as a constantly changing flow of energy, or qi (pronounced "chee"). In TCM, imbalances in this natural flow of energy are thought to result in disease. Acupuncture aims to restore health by improving the flow of qi. This practice enhances the body natural healing by regulating the energy flow and restoring balance. Hair thin needles are inserted into acupuncture points along the meridians where energy imbalance has been diagnosed. This promotes better blood flow and encourages healing. The patient is left to relax in a softly lit room for about thirty minutes. Patients often fall asleep. On your first visit, a thorough medical history will be needed. Depending on your ailment, the may also have your first acupuncture treatment at this time. In general, visits occur once or twice a week over several months until therapeutic results are achieved. Different people experience different sensations from acupuncture. Most find the sessions relaxing, and many fall asleep during or immediately after treatment. Some people are energized by treatment, while others feel relaxed. Once the needles are inserted (generally from one to 15 are used), the Physician may twist them manually or sent a weak electrical current through them to increase the energy flow. The needles may be left in for 15 to 40 minutes, depending on the ailment. Loose, comfortable cloths should be worn, and you should be aware that the acupuncturist may need to access points on your torso as well as on your arms and legs. While scored of illnesses have traditionally been treated by acupuncture in Asia, its primary use in the United States has been to relieve chronic pain--caused by such ailments as arthritis, headaches, PMS, and back pain--and to assist withdrawal from addictions such as drug and alcohol dependency.

Whiplash and the Chiropractis Lifestyle

Whiplash is most commonly received from riding in a car that is struck from behind or that collides with another object. When the head is suddenly jerked back and forth beyond its normal limits, the muscles and ligaments supporting the spine and head can be overstretched or torn. The soft, puply discs between spinal bones can bulge, tear or rupture. Vertebrae can be forced out of their normal position, reducing range of motion. The spinal cord and nerve roots in the neck can get stretched and irritated. While the occupants can suffer considerable soft tissue injury, the car may be only slightly damaged. The resulting instability of the spine and soft tissue can result in headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, pain in the shoulder, arms and hands, reduced ability to turn and bend, and even low back problems. As the body attempts to adapt, symtoms may not appear for weeks or even months later. The chiropractic approach to these types of injuries is to use specifis chiropractic adjustments to help return spinal function. After a thorough case history and examination, the doctor will reconmend a series of visits to help restore proper motion and position of spinal bones. If caught early enough, inflammation can be reduced and scar tissue can often be minimized. Consult a Doctor of Chiropractic before enduring constant headaches, depending upon addictive pain medication, or submitting to surgery.
