Study proves that acupuncture increases
pregnancy rates for women undergoing In-Vitro Fertilization. The study concludes that

infertility and menstrual cycle disorders for

been waiting for to be able to confidently recommend
acupuncture to their patients. Doctors in the
Cleveland Clinic are already using these techniques
with an 83% success rate.
