Acupuncture - best for IVF

posted 12 May 2012, 10:05 by Andrea AnJia   [ updated 12 May 2012, 10:08 ]

This article was originally published at the Natural Health magazine - UK. I often get interviewed by them or get asked to write some pieces. I quite like this one actually, as it is a subject I am rather passionate about. I work closely with midwifes and consultants from Guys and St Thomas as well as UCL, Kings, Lister and Portland hospitals.

What could be more rewarding than helping couples conceive? If the thought makes you go all gooey inside, you may want to train in acupuncture. “Patients who seek acupuncture just before or during IVF are treated following the IVF protocol”, explains Andrea Steinlechner, Harley Street Acupuncturist.

“When the patient is at the ovary stimulation stage, acupuncture is used to enhance follicular growth. This work is carried out very closely to the IVF procedure, with the bonus of relaxing the mind”, she adds. “If the patient is trying to conceive but is not currently undergoing IVF, a treatment plan following their menstrual cycle can be developed to help patient regain hormonal balance and optimise their chances of natural or assisted conception”.

It is vital to address the patient holistically, adds Andrea. “I will want to know full details of patients’ and their families’ health history. Only then I will understand the pathology and offer a treatment. Everyone is different, I’ve had patients conceiving naturally in one month but others not conceiving after six”.

Physiotherapy, chiropractic, massage therapy and acupuncture are amongst the most-covered therapies followed by naturopathic medicine. Other therapies that are increasingly being included are herbal remedies, homeopathy, mind-body stress management, and meditation.

But, how do you know the who, whow, when and why?             

In case of acupuncture in UK, most insurers will recognise acupuncturists who are members of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) or the British Medical Acupuncture Society (BMAS).

As a member of the British Acupuncture Council, I am fully trained and fully qualified and I am registered and able to accept several medical insurances, those include:

ACT Plan, Aviva Health UK Limited, Buck & Willis Health Care Ltd., Bupa Cashplan (not BUPA), Clinicare, CS Healthcare, Forester Health, Healthshield, Hospital Saturday Fund, Simply Health (formerly HAS), HSF, Leeds Hospital Fund, Legal & General Healthcare, Medisure, Pinnacle PLC , Royal & Sun Alliance Healthcare and Assistance, PruHealth (previous Standard Life Health Care), Sun Alliance Health Insurance, Westfield, WPA

This week I had a fantastic session with Dragons' Den Investor & Serial Entrepreneur Doug Richard's social enterprise School for Startups. It was possibly the best business seminar I have ever attended. At last, I feel I have actually learned something truly useful about e-marketing.
Inspired by Doug Richards and James Dening, Ex Amazon Head of Enterprises, I have been re-organising my website. Strangely though, this means some old posts have disappeared, but I am hoping to bring them back to life here soon. Not that this was ever an up to date estate of the art blog, but, ladies and gentlemen, please bear with me and watch this space.
