Acupuncture for Fertility and PCOS

Kristen Sparrow • October 15, 2013

isams logoDr. Stener Vitorin is perfecting her protocol for fertility and now focuses on Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS.)  PCOS patients have elevated sympathetic tone, so this condition might be one that my particular style of acupuncture would help since I normally add points to calm the sympathetic nervous system and enhance the parasympathetic nervous system at each treatment.  Unfortunately, she didn’t post an abstract nor power point copy either.
Her protocol involved electro stimulation (2HZ) at St32 andSt34, CV4 and CV12, ST 29.
Also Sp6 and Sp9 manual as well as LI4.  This leads to a decrease in sympathetic input to the uterus, improved menstrual cycles.
