How can acupuncture help with regulating blood sugar?

Acupuncture helps with regulating blood sugar by balancing your body’s major organs and the balance of Yin and Yang in you. It does not directly bring the blood sugar level down like western drugs, but rather we aim to improve a person’s body constitution and regain proper functioning of the organs, and through that, the blood sugar level can be normalized. The effects of TCM on blood sugar, whether acupuncture or herbal concoctions, aren’t immediate.

Does acupuncture for fertility really work?

Thanks for the D2D. Yes, acupuncture is effective for fertility. Acupuncture treatment which involves inserting needles at specific acupoints along the meridians, regulates the flow of qi and blood and restore healthy balance of yin and Yang. It serves to tonify where there is deficiency, drain where there is excess, and promote free flow where there is stagnation. Acupuncture can help to normalize hormones, regulate ovulation, and facilitate implantation by increasing blood flow to the uterus. Studies have also shown that acupuncture improves pregnancy rates in women undergoing IVF.
