Abstract: Until recently, Western reproductive medicine has traditionally maintained that ageing and declining egg quality is an irreversible process. However, ground-breaking research with low level light therapy conducted in Denmark and Japan is showing that it may be possible to improve egg quality, slow down the ageing process and significantly improve fertility in women. The studies show that low level laser therapy (LLLT) used on acupuncture points on the neck and over Zi Gong appears to enhance mitochondrial activity and ATP production, increase blood flow and helps to reduce oxidative damage.
Studies show that the mitochondria of older eggs is capable of producing significantly less ATP, which is the source of cellular energy. This has a significant impact on fertility, as the rate of division and successful implantation of embryos has more to do with how much energy (ATP) than with maternal age per se. Consequentially, the capacity of the cold laser to improve the ATP production of eggs has a potentially dramatic effect on their viability.
Adding LLLT to your acupuncture practice can be the difference maker by Increasing energy level (ATP) in the cells, improved blood circulation, softening of scar tissue and a reduction in inflammation. These factors are all beneficial to fertility in general and to the receptivity of uterine lining. Stand out amongst your colleagues and better help your patients by attending this lecture
