There are so many things which can damage male fertility. Men are told to stay away from hot tubs, pesticides, beer, processed foods and dozens of other fertility slashing things. What if there was one simple thing that men can add into their lives which would boost both sperm motility and morphology? Wouldn't you want to try it?

We know that men's fertility has been on the decline for decades but few people put much thought into it. Men produce multi million amounts of sperm so who cares about a few less right? Wrong! The average man in the early 1970's produced an average of 99 million sperm per milliliter. Fast forward to 2011 the average man only is producing 47 million sperm per milliliter.

In my work I often hear of men wanting to improve their fertility. The best way to do this is by knowing how sperm are made, formed and where this happens. This general process is better known as spermatogenesis. Once we understand the how sperm are created and where they mature we can then figure out how best to improve their function, quality and number.

Acupuncture is an effective modality for the treatment of infertility. One of the most common questions I have been asked is When is the best time to get Acupuncture for fertility?

Although we focus much of our treatments for fertility we rarely only treat reproductive health. Almost all of our patients have problems in other areas of their health which generally improve while we treat their fertility. A healthy body usually means optimal fertility!
