How does acupuncture balance hormones
Acupuncture can help balance hormones by regulating the endocrine system, which is responsible for producing and regulating hormones in the body. Hormonal imbalances can occur when there is a disruption in the body’s natural balance of hormones, which can affect ovulation and fertility.
Acupuncture works by stimulating specific points in the body, which can trigger the release of hormones and other chemicals that help regulate the endocrine system. By targeting these specific points, acupuncture can help balance hormone levels and improve reproductive function.
For example, acupuncture can help regulate the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, which controls the menstrual cycle and ovulation. By stimulating specific points, acupuncture can help regulate the production of luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), which are involved in ovulation.
Acupuncture can also help regulate other hormones that are important for fertility, such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. By balancing these hormones, acupuncture can improve the quality of eggs and sperm, increase the thickness of the uterine lining, and increase the chances of a successful pregnancy.
