‘Acupuncture ‘boosts success rate of IVF’
Acupuncture more than doubles women’s chances of having a baby through IVF, according to early results from a British trial……
Karin Gillerman, the acupuncturist who led the trial, said that the theory was that stimulating the nerves of particular points around the ovaries increased the blood flowing to them and helped the development of their follicles, where the eggs mature.
She won the support of Roy Homburg, professor of reproductive medicine at Queen Mary University of London. “Being a cynical conventional doctor, I didn’t believe it was going to work,” he said. “Having seen these results, I’m completely converted.”
