Infertility –defined as the inability to get pregnant after one year of unprotected sex--affects one in six couples in Canada and that number goes up to 50% for women over 40. But the good news is that, with help, most couples can now achieve their dream of having a baby.
“New studies are showing that combining acupuncture and low level laser therapy (LLLT/photobiomodulation) with fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) can increase live births and improve health outcomes for moms and babies,” says Dr. Lorne Brown founder and clinical director of Acubalance Wellness Centre in Vancouver (acubalance.ca) -- the integrative Wellness Centre in Canada pioneering combining acupuncture and low level laser therapy (LLLT/photobiomodulation) in reproductive health and fertility treatments.
The integrative approach is a collaboration of both Western and Eastern medicine that aims to treat the whole patient and may combine high tech fertility treatments like in vitro fertilization (IVF) with natural therapies like acupuncture, low level laser therapy (LLLT), nutrition, supplements, naturopathy and lifestyle changes.
“Modern reproductive medicine has made huge advancements in IVF and other reproductive technologies but is less effective at addressing underlying emotional and root causes of infertility in men and women. In addition, the new field of epigenetics is showing that the health of the man and the woman prior to conception can have significant impact on the health and development of their future child,” says Dr. Brown.
