Created by Lisa Olson in 2008, the eBook the Pregnancy Miracle guarantees it has a proven way to boost fertility, even in women who have had trouble conceiving for years. The author claims this method has been clinically researched and is backed by over sixty-five thousand hours of Chinese and holistic medicine research. But are these claims true? Is the author simply out to make a fast buck by preying on desperate women struggling with fertility issues, or can this guide deliver everything Olson promises?

About the Author
The author, Lisa Olson, is a nutrition specialist and health consultant. She has also spent thousands of hours researching Chinese medicine and other holistic-based fertility treatments.
Her fertility system promises to teach readers how to conceive quickly and believes the included methods will work even for older women and those who have been struggling with conception and failed fertility treatments. She also goes over how to treat both female and male fertility issues, in addition to providing a step by step guide on how to have a healthy, successful pregnancy and birth.
Olson struggled with her own fertility problems and discusses what she tried, what didn’t work, and how she used her personal experiences and struggle with fertility to come up with the basis of this program.
The book is full of information. In fact, the amount of information can be somewhat overwhelming. It includes plenty of basic information most women who are struggling with conception already know, such as basal temperatures and the importance of ovulation charts, vitamins, and herbs.
However, the eBook will teach you something you may not be familiar with, which is how acupuncture can be used to boost fertility.
The Acupuncture Fertility Connection
While it’s true that many women believe that acupuncture helped them conceive, there’s currently no evidence that this type of holistic treatment can help to boost fertility. However, what it can do is help to calm down the sympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for the fight or flight response. Basically, this treatment is believed to help women who are struggling with chronic stress and anxiety, both of which can interfere with fertility and a woman’s ability to conceive. Studies have shown that a reduction in stress and anxiety can provide a higher pregnancy rate.
According to fertility specialists, some women who use acupuncture when trying to conceive, do so in order to help promote emotional balance while undergoing stressful fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilization.
While there are studies that show the effects of acupuncture on fertility, no conclusive data is available. However, these same studies also showed that treatment did not cause harm or adverse effects, so women who are interested in trying acupuncture in order to boost fertility are usually encouraged to do so.
But in addition to acupuncture treatment, physicians will also usually recommend making important lifestyle changes such as incorporating exercise three to four times a week or cutting out processed foods and inflammatory foods from the diet. While it’s not clear whether these lifestyle changes or acupuncture treatments are what has a positive effect on a woman’s ability to conceive, most researchers believe that when combined, a woman has a much better chance at conception.
The Beginning of Acupuncture Treatment
The Pregnancy Miracle recommends starting acupuncture treatment three to four months before attempting to get pregnant. During this time the body is nurturing the egg and preparing it for release. Unfortunately, there is also no evidence that acupuncture treatment can positively affect egg quality, but if treatment can reduce stress, then treatment is worth pursuing.
What Holistic Medicine Tells Us about Acupuncture
While the medical world is still skeptical regarding the effects of acupuncture and how it can help aid in conception, in Chinese medicine, it’s believed to be effective because it can improve body energy, also known as Qi. It will also work to boost fertility by increasing blood flow to the uterus. This can result in a healthier, stronger, uterine lining. Additionally, treatment can regulate important hormones, regulate menstrual cycles, and minimize inflammation.
The Negative Side of the Program
Acupuncture may or may not be responsible for boosting a woman’s ability to conceive and considering there is no concrete evidence that can tell us whether or not treatment can have an effect on fertility, it seems misleading that the author guarantees conception. This is especially true for women who have already tried conventional fertility methods and those who are clearly desperate and struggling to have a baby. On the Pregnancy Miracle sales page, the author claims that this book can help women with PCOS, obstructions, cysts, fibroid tumors, and endometriosis. It also states that the program can be followed as a substitute for traditional treatments. This program should never be used as a substitute for traditional medical care. Saying so makes the author come off as irresponsible.
Why You’ll Love this Program
For those of you willing to give this program a try, you’ll be happy with the layout of the guide and the straightforward manner in which Olson lays out all of the program’s material, goals, and recommendations. The book is easy to follow and clearly explains what you need to do to boost fertility and how acupuncture can help.
A Look Inside the Guide
Olson’s take on the Eastern philosophy of treating infertility and how and why it works is fascinating. The author’s take on how lifestyle can affect fertility and how to successfully use Eastern techniques to boost fertility can be an eye opener for some.
The guide itself is easy to follow along with and can be an effective alternative approach to traditional fertility treatments. The guide includes affordable, simple ways to improve fertility and increase chances of conception, without invasive medical procedures or surgery.
The guide includes information on Eastern versus Western views for infertility, the common causes of infertility, ovulation, and the female and male reproductive systems.
The most important part of the guide is the five steps you must take in order to conceive and deliver a healthy infant, even if you’re over the age of forty.
Below you’ll find the five steps that are discussed in-depth in the guide:
- Achieving harmony and balance: While this step may sound very new age to some, the author does provide solid advice regarding how effective and important this step is.
- Eliminating toxins from the body, making dietary changes, and taking supplements: The author offers a new, effective approach to supplements and diet designed to improve fertility.
- Acupuncture: Most women are surprised to learn that acupuncture can have such a major impact on fertility. The author discusses how treatment can affect the body and mind and why it’s an important step in your journey to conception.
- Detox: The detox portion of the program will take one week to complete. It’s designed to significantly improve fertility.
- Eastern exercise methods and acupressure: In order to prepare your body for conception, the fifth step will take you through different techniques and exercises that can increase your chances of conceiving.
Fertility Issues in Men
Women are quick to take all the blame when fertility problems become an issue. But what they don’t know is that men are just as likely to suffer from infertility issues as women.
The rest of the guide features a four-step plan that can improve male fertility.
How to Naturally Overcome Fertility Problems
There is also an additional one hundred pages devoted to overcoming certain conditions that can affect fertility including endometriosis, ovarian cysts, infections, immune disorders, and more.
Overall, Olson does a great job of providing you with information and techniques you can try to help with conception.
Conditions that Can Affect Fertility Discussed
The author goes in-depth regarding the medical conditions that can negatively impact fertility, including the following:
Obesity: Body fat percentages that are ten to fifteen percent above normal can cause the body to produce an excess amount of estrogen.
Underweight: Being underweight can have the same effect as being overweight. Body fat levels that are ten to fifteen percent below normal can actually cause the reproductive system to shut down.
Hormonal imbalance: Irregular hormone production can affect the body’s ability to ovulate.
Autoimmune disorders: Diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid disease, diabetes, and lupus can interfere with fertility in both men and women.
Certain medications: Painkillers, antibiotics, antidepressants, and other medications can cause temporary infertility.
Alcohol and tobacco use: Even moderate alcohol consumption can affect fertility, as can smoking.
