Acupuncture Treating Recurrent Miscarriages

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, July 18, 2012 | 0 comments
Garden Acupuncture, the premiere fertility clinic in Park Slope, Brooklyn is helping women get pregnant, stay pregnant and give birth to healthy babies.

Carrie had a history of infertility despite her active, healthy lifestyle. After several miscarriages and a D+C, her cycle became very irregular. She then decided to seek out professional treatment.

She came to Garden Acupuncture to enhance her fertility and to ensure a full term pregnancy. After several months of acupuncture and Chinese herbal therapy, Carrie had a normal menstrual cycle and was ready to conceive. Her pregnancy has been completely normal and she is due late December.

Acupuncture has been increasing fertility for centuries and now a recent study shows how. Researchers from The Second Affiliated Hospital of Shandong University of TCM, uncovered the biochemical mechanism that does just this. Acupuncture increases blood levels of HLA-G (human leukocyte antigen).

Presence of the HLA-G protein is predictive of higher pregnancy and live birth rates according to modern research conducted at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
