COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Aug 12, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Dr. Paul C. Magarelli, a nationally noted specialist in the field of reproductive endocrinology and infertility, and Dr. Diane K. Cridennda, a recognized authority on acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, have announced early results of an ongoing study linking acupuncture to positive in-vitro fertilization (IVF) outcomes.
"Infertility is a condition that affects more than 7.3 million people nationwide, and many of those couples are unaware of the potential that acupuncture holds for them," said Dr. Magarelli
"Our study demonstrates that acupuncture increases uterine blood flow, reduces stress and has an overall positive impact on our IVF patients.
And the results really speak for themselves: one of every four of our patients who have used acupuncture in conjunction with IVF
has not had to repeat an IVF
cycle to create their families."
A three-part exploration of Drs. Magarelli and Cridennda's ongoing breakthrough acupuncture and IVF study will be published in Fertility Today magazine
later this year.
