Pregnancy Miracle by Lisa Olson - An Independent Review

The Long-Awaited Answer for Couples Struggling with Infertility or Simply Regurgitated Information?

Dealing with infertility is an endless roller coaster of emotions: Frustration and excitement, hope and hopelessness, fear and anticipation, sadness and anger. Only someone who has experienced infertility can really understand what it's like to yearn to have a baby but not to be able to conceive for whatever reason.

Lisa Olson's ebook, Pregnancy Miracle, claims to have the answer, for couples struggling with infertility, to becoming pregnant in an all-natural way. In fact, in her sales pitch, she claims her book provides a surefire way of getting pregnant in only two months, regardless of why a couple has not been able to conceive.

But, does the Pregnancy Miracle, the secrets Olson touts throughout her sales pitch and the beginning of the book, really work?

Perhaps, even more important, are the secrets even secrets at all? Or, is it simply regurgitated information that can be found for free all over the internet?

After purchasing and reading Olson's ebook, I think the answer becomes it depends on for what you are looking: A miracle? You won't find it. A different approach to trying to conceive? You'll find that but must decide if it's the right approach for you.

Pregnancy Miracle: Step-by-Step

Olson breaks down her book into digestible sections, including:

Human Anatomy

The Eastern view of Fertility and the Myths of Western Medicine

Steps you must take to conceive and give birth

This five-step plan to getting pregnancy is the miracle, the secrets Olson so enthusiastically touts and it plays heavily on Chinese medicine. The five steps include:
Using congruency, harmony and balance - preparing your body - for conception.Enhancing fertility through your diet, vitamins, and minerals.Using acupuncture and herbs to cleanse your body and to help you balance your energy, making conception easier.Cleansing yourself internally and detoxifying your liver.Using acupuncture and Qi Gong exercises to enhance your Qi.

An overview of the causes of infertility - from endometriosis and advanced age to cancer and unexplained infertility.

The Miracle: Or is it?

Miracle is an often overused term, and that's no exception in this case. Olson's five step program, which we went over a few paragraphs ago, simply focuses on Chinese medicine and how to nurture your body in a way that makes it more likely for conception: Eating right, adding supplements to your daily regiment, undergoing a juice cleansing and fast, and knowing how to pinpoint the best time for conception.

Olson includes a lot of information when she discusses her program. Some of the information is simple commonsense: Stay away from lead and products that contain lead. Give up the junk food, including caffeine, and make sure you turn down the stress level.

She also provides a comprehensive list of vitamins and minerals you should add to your diet. There are so many vitamins and minerals that it becomes overwhelming. It's definitely not a regiment that you want to begin before you consult your doctor.

Perhaps the most intriguing component of Olson's miracle system is the juice cleanse and fast, which is accompanied by an approximate six to eight week recovery period (a lifetime if you're trying to conceive). The cleanse and the fast, which Olson promotes as the way to rid your body of all of its toxins, seems to take a heavy toll on the body. You'll feel a lot worse before you feel better, she advises, during those six to eight weeks following the fast.

Once you've rid yourself of those toxins, balanced your Qi, and added the proper diet, vitamins and minerals to your daily routine, you are much better prepared for conception, according to Olson.

That's it. There's your miracle. Cleanse yourself with juices. Fast (using a fasting program Olson recommends and of which she is, in fact, an affiliate). Balance your Qi. You're ready to have a baby. Sure, there's stuff in between you have to read and understand, but those are the basics.

If I was going through the struggle of infertility today, I don't know that I would go for Olson's system. While it might work for some women, especially those who have an open mind and are willing to try anything to conceive, the Pregnancy Miracle results in a beating on the body that requires considerable time to heal. Is your body healthy enough for such a system?

Getting the body in balance is definitely a bonus, but it does appear it will take a toll, and you must decide if it is worth it. (Fertility procedures, like IVF, also take a toll on the body. They are not easy emotionally or physically, which is how the Pregnancy Miracle appears to be.)
