What to Know When Searching the Internet for Information

Over the past week I have been getting a lot of information sent to me showing me articles by professionals stating that herbs can’t help assist you with your fertility, and don’t let anyone tell you any different. I know that information is out there and I also know that we have helped nearly 4000 couples become pregnant over the years with the help of the herbals so I thought it was time to dispel …

Not Committed Enough?

Today’s fertility tip was inspired by a conversation that I had with a woman in Toowoomba after I presented my evening seminar, Fertility Secrets Revealed. She was telling me about the side effects and horrible symptoms that she was having when taking the medication that her doctor had prescribed for her fertility issues.

Bacterial problem linked to fertility issues

A patient emailed and told me about Ureaplasma urealyticum and that it can effect fertility.  It was rather ironic that I received this email when I did because I had recently read that this bacteria may be associated with miscarriage and poor IVF outcomes.  So a big thank you to the reader who sent it in as this prompted me to finish my research on the topic and get it out to you. This is still a …
