If this is a startling stastitic, consider that studies are showing that sperm quality is on the decline. Due to environmental factors, the advancement of poor diet and a general increase in stress levels, both sperm counts and sperm quality are reaching never-before-seen lows. Using Traditional Chinese Medicine and the ancient practice of acupuncture, we can help turn the tables on male infertility.
Recent studies are proving the efficacy of acupuncture for male infertility. Acupuncture first and foremost focuses on facilitating the circulation of qi, the vital energy that powers all of a human's biological processes. Seen through the lens of TCM, male infertility and indeed even erectile dysfunction is viewed as a disruption in the flow of qi. By returning the body's natural balance (homeostasis in western medicine), both sperm counts and sperm quality improve.
Another way that acupuncture addresses male infertility is by reducing stress. Although the exact impact of stress on infertility in both males and females is not known, it is said with certainty that there is a role. From the viewpoint of western medicine, stress plays a role in myriad dsyfunction and diseases. Measured by the presence of the hormone cortisol, acupuncture significantly reduces stress levels immediately following treatment. The healthier a man's body, the healthier the sperm he produces.
