Men's Health

When I work with couples who want to conceive, I am always surprised at how often male factor, i.e. sperm abnormalities are diagnosed pretty late in the process. It's so helpful to know specific details about the qualities of sperm.  When lab tests reveal problems with sperm count, motility or morphology,-- there are clear, simple steps you can take to make improvements.  Men make new sperm every 70 to 90 days.  The sperm values improve most often with changes in diet and lifestyle, nutritional supplements, and acupuncture.  

Widespread declining sperm values is a growing health concern, affecting more and more men, at younger ages. Up to 50% of infertility diagnoses are caused by sperm abnormalities. Risk factors include advanced paternal age, nutritional deficiencies, exposure to environmental toxins, poor diet, obesity and sleep disorders.

East Asian Medicine -- acupuncture, moxibustion, herbal therapy, nutritional supplements and lifestyle guidance --- can help make significant improvements in sperm quality.  We recommend 2 to 3 months of regular treatment and will also offer you simple self-care methods to improve sperm count, motility and morphology.

If you are able to take the time for regular treatments, statistics show that the outcomes are almost always successful.  Please feel free to contact the office if you have questions or would like to schedule a consultation.
