More males than ever are seeking acupuncture as a treatment for infertility. Studies are showing time and again that acupuncture is an effective treatment for male infertility; and it has the benefit of being an all natural treatment that comes with few side effects. But how exactly does it work? Let's take a look.
Stagnation happens. In the male reproductive system, stagnation of the blood contributes to higher temperatures in the scrotum, decreased sperm production and an excess of metabolic waste products. Remember that optimal sperm production occurs at a temperature between 1-2 degrees celcius below your core temperature. Stagnation of blood in the male reproductive system is an important factor in solving male infertility; fortunately, acupuncture solves stagnation.
Whether your sperm count or quality is below normal, acupuncture is a great choice for improving both factors and increasing your chance of conception. Acupuncture improves circulation that contributes to a cooler scrotum, more nutrients and less metabolic waste.
