"James Schwartz has made a valuable contribution to the field of reproductive health. He deeply understands the workings of the mind and its impact on the cellular response, especially as it pertains to fertility. Not only does Mr. Schwartz provide compelling evidence to support a body, mind, and spirit approach, he applies easy and effective exercises to overcome limiting beliefs." -- Dr. Randine Lewis, author of The Infertility Cure, and The Way of the Fertile Soul
"The mind is the fashioning factor of people's overall life experience. This ancient wisdom has gained modern corroboration, especially in the fields of medicine, psychology and metaphysics. Now Jim Schwartz brings an awareness of the mind/body connection to the heartbreaking challenges of infertility. This book is sure to reveal new horizons and powerful possibilities by taking women and couples to the very core of the creative process of our lives--and of all life." -- Dr. Roger W. Teel, spiritual leader and co-founder of the Association for Global New Thought.

I found a hypnotherapist in my area that is very good and had a couple of sessions. This hypnotherapy essentially took my mind completely off the stress that I created around getting pregnant and I was able to get back to the great life my husband and I have made. This was in August. On January 20 we found out that we were pregnant and I'm due in 5 weeks. Do not underestimate the power of the mind body relationship.
From an ecological/biological point-of-view, when the environment contains too many things stressing the population (whether that population is prairie dogs or humans), often the effect of those stressors is first seen in the ability to reproduce, or more accurately the lack of the ability to reproduce. Modern society has tossed quite a few 'big' stressors at its human population, including endocrine-disrupting pesticides that mimic estrogen in the body, endocrine-disrupting residues from plastics leaching into our food because we lazily heat everything in plastic in the microwave, increasing incidence of food allergies & food intolerance, high levels of stress because of work, personal life issues, and just LIFE issues in general. The list goes on and on. Combine those with women putting off child bearing until their later years, and you have a recipe for reproductive disaster.
Jim offers hope for many in the midst of all those stresses, who desperately want children and who either don't want to start down the ART/IVF route, or those who have already gone that route and and who are hoping to find another way to work with, assist, and strengthen the body. Often, docs will refer an older woman for ART/IVF based on age alone, although no tests have been done on hormone levels or the health of the eggs. Addressing the mind, body, and spiritual issues place as much control as possible back with the mommy (and daddy) to be. And considering that the highest stress levels of all occur because of things out-of-our control, this is a very good thing indeed.
Jim only touched on the energy healing aspects of this integrated approach, but it is also (IMHO) a very important part of re-balancing the body and helping to clear the endocrine system, which the chakras work with intimately. Other things that also help with this are dietary changes, daily meditation (his 10-minute visualization is a perfect example), daily Qi Gong, and adapting other helpful practices that make you feel BETTER, body, mind & spirit.
