Acupuncture for Male Libido and Infertility: At Integrative Med Solutions, in Eastchester, NY

Dr. Fred Lisanti

Acupuncture may be the go-to treatment for enhancing male libido and fertility, says Dr. Fred Lisanti, a naturopathic doctor and licensed acupuncturist and the owner of Integrative Med Solutions in Eastchester, NY.

Stress, diet, lack of sleep, age and environmental pollutants are some of the many reasons men can experience decreased sexual desire and fertility, Lisanti says. “While conventional medicines can address the problem, they may also cause side effects, and they often just cover the problem rather than addressing its root cause,” he says. “Acupuncture, which attempts to balance the body’s energetic flux to instill optimal health without side effects, has been particularly effective for enhancing male libido and fertility.”

According to a study published in Fertility and Sterility Journal, the official journal of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, “The treatment of idiopathic male infertility could benefit from employing acupuncture. A general improvement of sperm quality, specifically in the ultrastructural integrity of spermatozoa, was seen after acupuncture.” The treatment also has been effective in reducing stress in males, reports Dr. Ladan Eshkevari, lead author of a 2013 study published in the Journal of Endocrinology. “Our growing body of evidence points to acupuncture’s protective effect against the stress response,” he concludes.

Lisanti, who designs acupuncture and naturopathic treatment programs to address libido and fertility enhancement, says that in many cases, insurance covers a portion of the acupuncture treatments.
