Male infertility can be caused by physical factors, environmental factors, hormonal factors, or lifestyle factors. Approximately fifteen percent of couples are infertile and half are infertile due to male infertility. There are quite a few factors that can lead to male infertility. The following are a few of the factors: low sperm production, poor sperm quality, immobile sperm, blockages preventing the delivery of sperm, injuries, chronic health problems, illness, anatomical problems, or genetic factors.
There a number of different treatments used to help men become fertile once again. The treatment will depend on your age, lifestyle, the duration of your infertility, and a few other factors that will be discussed with the patient by the doctor. In some cases after analyzing blood tests, the doctor may find an infection or hormone imbalance and can treat the problem with antibiotics or hormones. Sometimes therapy or medication is prescribed for problems with sexual intercourse. Lifestyle changes may have to be made, including eliminating caffeine, nicotine, or alcohol. A healing modality that the Chinese have been using for thousands of years that is found to be powerful in treating male infertility is acupuncture!
Acupuncture treatment for male infertility. Qi, which is known as vital energy, flows along the body on particular pathways. Acupuncturists balance out this energy during the treatment sessions to allow for better energy and blood flow. Studies have shown that regular acupuncture treatments have increased the sperm volume and the sperm motility (the strength in which the sperm swim). Acupuncture is known to improve the morphology of sperm and to reduce the number of abnormal sperm found in men. Our program also incorporates Chinese herbal formulas and nutritional guidance to enhance male fertility. Acupuncture is a low cost, non-invasive treatment that is very effective, according to numerous research studies, in treating male infertility.
In some cases acupuncture takes away the need for other male infertility treatments. In other cases, acupuncture complements traditional infertility treatments nicely. High stress levels can also play a large role in infertility. Acupuncture reduces stress by lowering blood pressure, increasing oxygen flow, and by decreasing heart rate. There are also higher rates of pregnancies in the partners of males who receive acupuncture but have an unknown cause for infertility.
