More frustrating, however, is the idea that anyone can overcome infertility if she thinks the right thoughts and that the people who go to IVF or other assisted procedures are taking the easy way out. I think there are couples who think, "I could quit smoking and see if that helps, but IVF is easier." but so many more of us try anything and everything we can with or without assisted reproductive technologies. I have changed my diet, exercised the "right" amount, examined my thought process . . . all the things the book suggests. We perhaps even wasted valuable time by pursuing these methods as I went from age 34 to age 38 before moving to IVF thereby decreasing our chances of success from about 50% chance / cycle to about 30% chance / cycle.
Furthermore, the examples in her book are of young couples with unexplained infertility. A quote from page 25 says it all, "In most cases of unexplained infertility, it can take as long as seven months to conceive." Wow! A whole seven months! The poor dears! So her book must be helpful to people who may not even progress to get a diagnosis of infertility since most standards put that at 1 year of unprotected sex without conceiving.
The only reason this book got 2 stars is that there is at least one idea for meditation that I liked (in the book, not on the cd) and I do believe that how we think and feel about ourselves as well as how well we treat our bodies can have an influence. It is just not the whole story.
For better guided imagery I suggest "Help for Infertility"
