A long term clinical study has concluded that the use of acupuncture as a treatment for infertility can significantly improve chances of pregnancy. The study tested acupuncture alongside groups of women who were either also using in-vitro fertilization (IVF), intrauterine Insemination (IUI) and women using no biomedical assistance. While results varied between the different groups they also experienced increases in fertility. Compared to the normal predicted outcome of 24% conception from IVF, 42.5% of the women in the IVF group conceived.

The group of women receiving no other biomedical treatment for fertility other than acupuncture, demonstrated a conception rate of 52.38%. This study clearly demonstrates how acupuncture is a safe and effective way to increase a woman’s fertility when trying to conceive. The researchers also noted that no adverse health effects were witnessed during the study. This is news for anyone undergoing fertility treatment who wants a safe, natural and cost-effective way to increase their chances of conception.

Acupuncture has proven to be especially effective in alleviating Irritable Bowel Syndrome for patients suffering from a
particularly severe type of IBS known as IBS-D. Recent research has shown that acupuncture has a 96.7% total effective rate
with many patients recovering completely from IBS. The study tested the effects of acupuncture on abdominal pain and other
severe effects of IBS-D. By itself, acupuncture had a 76% total effective rate but when combined with moxibustion, an herbal remedy, the total effective rate spiked to 96.7%.

The symptoms of IBS-D include abdominal pain and diarrhea and can be debilitating. This research is promising for any seeking treatment for IBS-D. If you suffer from IBS, make an appointment with an acupuncturist because you can be sure that they can help.
