Get the most Bang for your Oocyte Buck
Did you know that you can thank your mother for bestowing you with the number of eggs or oocytes you will carry for a lifetime?
Women at birth have around 400, 000 Oocytes (eggs) in their ovaries. Environmental and stress factors can decrease egg quality and quantity. So, you ask, “how do we get the most bang for our buck?” in other words how do we maximize egg quality to better the chances of conception?.
Acupuncture helps to boost female fertility and improve (oocyte) egg quality in three main ways:
1) Regulating hormone function and optimizing a woman's menstrual cycle. (Conditions such as polycystic ovaries and endometriosis have also been shown to improve with regular acupuncture treatments).
2) Increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs to help improve the endometrial lining and enhance the chances of conception. At the same time improving mitochondrial function and increasing cellular ATP. Keeping the eggs strong and healthy.
3) Reducing Stress; Trying to conceive is a stressful experience, which can further hinder the chances of becoming pregnant. There are the additional benefits too from taking positive steps in regaining control over wellbeing and acupuncture provides the perfect environment to make a patient feel acknowledged, nurtured and relaxed. Not to mention acupuncture helps promote a deeper quality of sleep which is the best way to recuperate and heal the body because sleep is the best antioxidant for us!
