Low AMH stands for Anti-Mullerian Hormone which is produced by small follicles in the ovaries. A follicle is a small fluid-filled sac that contains an egg. As the conventional theory goes, the lower the level of AMH, the fewer the small follicles and thus, the fewer the eggs there are left in ovaries.
There are significant factors that dictate the health of an egg and what parts of the original DNA actually get expressed. It is indeed possible to improve the health of the eggs even if you have been diagnosed with low AMH or poor egg quality.
The environment that eggs occupy during their final maturation has a significant impact on their quality at the time of fertilization, and therefore has a strong impact on the health of the developing embryo. The optimal environment includes a healthy blood supply, sufficient oxygen to the tissue, adequate amounts of the most nourishing nutrients, and for the correct hormone signals to be present.
Research has shown: Eggs that come from a follicle with optimal blood supply and oxygen content have higher fertilization rates. In older ovaries blood supply to the follicles tends to be reduced, which means these ovaries are not getting adequate oxygen, nutrients, and hormone signals from the blood supply.
Acupuncture has the ability to promote the growth of new blood vessels and to specifically increase blood flow to the ovaries. Chinese herbs and nutritional therapy can ensure the blood supply carries increased levels of oxygen, nutrients, and strong hormone signals. Therefore acupuncture and Chinese herbs can improve AMH
