At Zeeva, we offer a wide spectrum of natural techniques and treatments to enhance your Fertility and improve your chances of having a healthy pregnancy. These include yoga, meditation, acupuncture and acupressure.
Acupuncture- It is a very popular alternative medicine technique that involves the insertion of thin needles at specific sites on the body, to various depths so as to reduce pain, discomfort and inflammation. Acupuncture helps to reduce stress and increases stamina and flow of energy in the body. It can help to relieve pain related to menstruation and endometriosis as well as help to elevate the success of IVF.
Acupressure- It is an age-old technique that derives its roots from ancient China. This involves the exertion of pressure on certain points of the body with the help of a fingertip so as to normalize the flow of Qi (energy) in the reproductive organs. This helps to release stress and maintain a healthy hormonal balance. Acupressure also helps to enhance the health of the associated organs and the way they respond to a certain disease.
Improved egg quality- Daily stress and strain can have a negative impact on the quality of eggs by restricting the flow of oxygenated blood to the pelvic area. This, in turn, alleviates the blood flow to the ovaries. Acupuncture and acupressure help to increase the blood flow to the pelvic area which enhances follicle development and results in the formation of healthier eggs.
Elevated IVF success rates- Acupuncture and acupressure has been found to significantly increase the success rate of in vitro fertilization and can be performed both before and after the implantation. These can help to negate the need for multiple IVF cycles.
Hormonal balance- Hormonal imbalance is a very common problem among males and females of child-bearing age. The major causes of these include unhealthy eating habits, stagnant lifestyle, stress and pollution. Acupuncture and acupressure trigger the release of endorphins in the brain which compel the body to produce elevated levels of gonadotropin-releasing hormone, FSH, estrogen and progesterone. Healthy hormone levels naturally result in regular menstrual and ovulation cycles
Healthier endometrial lining- Studies suggest that the womb lining should be at least 8mm thick for the successful implantation and pregnancy. However, the endometrial lining can become thin owing to a variety of reasons thereby not allowing the implantation to take place successfully. Acupuncture and acupressure help to increase the thickness of the endometrium.
Managing PCOS- Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a problem that affects 1 out of 5 women in India and 1 out of 10 women globally. It is one of the leading causes of infertility in women. The symptoms of IVF are very prominent and can be quite overwhelming for some. Acupuncture and acupressure can help to alleviate most of these by facilitating normal menstrual cycles.
Managing endometriosis- Endometriosis is a medical condition marked by the outgrowth of the endometrial tissue to the surrounding tissues usually as a result of chronic hormonal imbalance. Women suffering from endometriosis tend to experience heavy blood flow, bleeding in-between periods and chronic pain while menstruating or during sex. Acupuncture and acupressure can help to significantly reduce endometriosis pain, increase cytokines and reduce inflammation.
Improved male fertility- Acupuncture and acupressure can prove to be really effective in treating male infertility problems associated with sperm quality, count and mobility, testosterone production, reproductive tract and sperm ejaculation by enhancing blood circulation. These have also be found to increase sex drive.
