Acupuncture (Definition)

Acupuncture is a treatment based on Chinese medicine -- a system of healing that dates back thousands of years.

If you do not have enough thyroid hormone, then a supplemental thyroid hormone replacement is the only effective treatment. Acupuncture has been used to treat infertility, but the reports are not convincing - many women get pregnant during infertility evaluations even without any treatment.
