    Fertility, Embryo Quality and Acupuncture

    April 22, 2014

    Studies have shown that both embryo (fertilized egg) quality and embryo transfer rates are significantly increased with the use of acupuncture before and on the day of transfer.

    The study in reference to egg quality was done in a population of women with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) – a constellation of symptoms that includes blood sugar dysregulation, polycystic ovaries, testosterone dominance and infertility.

    Additional studies on acupuncture may shed some light as to the reason for this effect. Progesterone production, which is essential for implantation and maintenance of pregnancy can be upregulated through acupuncture treatment.

    What’s a Phthalate and Why Does It Matter for Joe and Jane Jr.?

    by Dr. Anne Williams, ND, LAc

    Maybe you’ve been hearing the buzz about phthalates in your food, cosmetics and home care products. So what are they, exactly?

    Phthalates are chemicals derived from naphthalene, the beloved mothball. They act as softeners or “plasticizers” in your basic plastic structure. Without such plasticizers, plastic (PVC, PE or PP) is actually quite hard and referred to as “hard plastic.”

    How do phthalates affect us? It appears that children and infants may be at the greatest risk from phthalate exposure, especially during pregnancy.

    Endocrine disruption, including endometriosis, fibroids, male infertility, pre-term birth, asthma, obesity and heart disease are among the conditions associated with greater exposure to phthalates.

    What can we do? To start with, consider the old-fashioned glass, stainless steel and iron as your friendly alternatives to plasticware in the home, especially for storing food.
