Egg Health – Quality/Quantity
Have you been told any of These Things?
* Your ovarian reserve is low
* Your eggs are poor quality
*There is the “age factor”
* Your only hope of conceiving is IVF, egg donor or surrogacy
* You are a poor responder (to the drugs)
* Your FSH is too high
* If you do conceive the odds of the baby being healthy are low* You must immediately go on HRT to protect your bones
* Your test results match a woman in her mid-50s
For 20 years we have listened to distraught women who have just come from the fertility clinic having been given dire news about their fertility using the phrases above
Russell and I had tried for 4 years to conceive naturally. Then we tried Reproductive Endochrinology. Month after month, test after test, failure after failure. Expense after expense.
I remember meeting again and again with our intelligent, kind doctor, and his gentle reminders that I was not getting any younger. He wanted to spare me. He wanted me to ‘’face the facts’’ and come to terms with my severe limitation: my age.
Yet I became pregnant at 44. Thousands of the women of all ages from all over the world have had the same success – all of us delivering beautiful healthy children. We were all marked as failures.
How did this happen?
It happened because we all changed the environment within which our eggs were growing. The Radiant Wonder Natural Fertility Plan allowed our eggs to grow in a very nutrient rich and energy rich soup.
Our ages did not change. The eggs were our eggs. But with these specially crafted programs, our eggs were enriched in a way modern science is not able to enrich them. Modern science can stimulate the ovaries to make more eggs, but not better quality eggs. Only you can do that.
Yet, how do you move that picture?
There is good science behind our programs. Follow the link to see a summary of a research report documenting that with the right Chinese Herbal formulas, women saw more eggs, better quality eggs, and better ovulatory function, and they had a 60% better chance than IVF of getting pregnant. So you see, it has been done. And please be clear: this preconception nurturing of your natural fertility function will increase your chances of a successful IUI, IVF, ISCI, etc.
What has been common for all of us is that we each used a natural fertility method that I devised myself from the study of Chinese Medicine. I learned how to personalize this fertility strategy as I started refining it with more study and sharing it with other women.
The first key to our success is that your egg health plan has been specially designed by an herbalist who holds a Masters Degree in Chinese Medicine, someone who has the ability to craft a fertility strategy unique for this situation.
The second key is the personalization of that plan as you heal. This is created through feedback and adjustments to your plan depending on your unique results each month.
These herbs are not meant to be taken over and over again until you succeed, although many can be recommended for continued use. There needs to be a reason behind what you are doing.
This natural fertility strategy brings more energy, more vitality to your body, and to your eggs.
Chinese Medicine is the study of the body’s energy. This is the great secret and the great gift of this ancient natural medicine.
Your eggs are needing not only nutrient rich foods to develop well but also to be flowing in a wave of good energy, feeding on that energy as they grow, every minute of everyday. Increased vitality is critical for your success. Your eggs need your energy to thrive. And when you have good nutrition and increased vitality your picture starts to move.
As you feel these changes your numbers will also move. You have a high probability of changing the reports. These are the secrets to turning back your biological clock.
Radiant Wonder can help you to
• Ignore your chronological age (based on the date you were born) and create a younger biological age (based on the quality of your life and health)
• Renew and rejuvenate with the purpose of not only giving your body a new chance to create high quality eggs,
• Start building the energy needed to not only get pregnant but carry the pregnancy full term.
Life’s Challenges Bring Success, but We Can Pay a Price.
So it is actually very logical that if you can find a way to renew your energy and balance your cycle – you will dramatically increase your odds for getting pregnant.
Let me offer you some inspiration. Here are two Success Stories from women who did just that with the help of Radiant Wonder.
Here is Suzanne Smith’s Success Story of her little baby Sarah.
Suzanne was told by her doctor and her acupuncturist that she should give up. She was told that there was no hope. It took a year and 4 months working with us, but she defied all the odds and found success.
You can see the frustration and the feeling that things had to happen fast in the first email she sent.
4 months on the program: Discouraged and wondering when or if she should stop
5 months on the program: Balanced cycle and making more eggs
6 months later: FSH down – Follicle count up!
1 year and 3 month mark: The fateful month…and a hesitation to test
6 months later: I can’t believe our baby will be here in just a few weeks!
Suzanne kept going. Why? She had a strong will but she had also started to see changes happening in her cycle, in her body and in her energy that she had not seen in all the years she had been trying before.
So the strong desire and the acknowledgement of continued healing kept her going.
It doesn’t always take this long. Sometimes 3-6 months is enough.
And here is Candace. A much faster road to success. It only took her a few months to become pregnant.
Do you remember Candace’s testimonial last year? Her FSH dropped from 17 to 5 in 3 months. (Here’s her original story.) And now Candace and her husband David have a beautiful baby girl!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
You and your herbals nourished me to pregnancy and I now have a 4 month old baby girl! You helped me when I felt lost-when the fertility doctor, that I had been working with for 8 months, told me there was nothing he could do for me. He told me that I had “Low Ovarian Reserve”.
I was 36 years old.
Less than three months later I became pregnant from taking your herbals. I went from an FSH of 17 to an FSH of 5 in less than two months on your plan.
I was still having the fertility specialist track my FSH in hopes that it would be an 11 or under again. I was to take Follistim if it came back in this range because my body would respond to Follistim again. I was shocked when my FSH was a 5. My lowest FSH before this was an FSH of 9 when I first started fertility.
When the doctor wanted to put me back on Follistim because it was now in a good range I said no and quit working with the fertility doctor. I knew that my body was getting what it needed to get back on track.
My body was cycling at 28 days again, my sex drive was up, I had more energy. I felt healthy. Then my dream came true of not only getting pregnant but getting pregnant naturally.
My own body picked the right egg to release and I had intercourse because I wanted to, not because the doctor told me to. And I never looked back at artificial insemination. I know so many women are in the same boat that I was in and I hope they find their way to you. You made my dream of having a baby a reality.
My family and I thank you from deep within our hearts.
We Have Seen Many Miracles
• Women have seen a menses, sometimes gone for years, return again and become regular.
• A very high FSH (195) drops to 7.
• An AMH test moves from 0.6 to 1.6 in 6 weeks. (and she was pregnant the next month)
How Old Can I Be and Still Have a Possibility of Conceiving?
Western Medicine sees the end of fertility at age 40.
Chinese Medicine has a different perspective. There is a conversation that happened 2500 years ago between the Yellow Emperor and his chief herbalist. The discussion was about the limits for fertility for men and women.
Men, he said, were able to help a woman get pregnant until age 64.
Women could have a child as long as there was a menses, usually into their early 50s.
Don’t Just Take Our Word for It
Research is supporting what we have been seeing for years: More eggs – Better Quality Eggs – Better Ovulatory Function.

There is no absolute guarantee for success as we all know but we have been working with women for over 15 years. We have helped literally thousands of couples from all over the world to have the baby they were yearning for.
Now… back on to the story of your eggs and how things can change…
The truth about our eggs is complicated.
• Even before you are born your ovaries are full of millions of eggs.
• Those numbers drop to hundreds of thousands by your teenage years.
• When you are getting close to menopause you still have thousands of eggs.
So how can you be told that your ovarian reserve is low?
Why are you told you are a low responder?
Why are you told your eggs are old and fractured?
You are told those things because that is what the ultrasounds and other tests for levels of FSH and AMH record. And statistically low reserve, low responding and poor quality eggs line up with those numbers.
The truth is that almost all women are able to change those reports. And there is good science behind this thinking.
There are three issues here:
1. the number of eggs
2. the quality of the eggs
3. our hormonal fluctuations, which are heavily affected by cortisol levels which are affected by chronic stress
We are told we have a finite number of eggs and that the numbers of those eggs becomes less and less as we age. It is true that we have eggs when we are born and that number becomes less, however there is more to it than that.
Exciting Harvard Research on How We Make New Eggs
You have two lungs but you can function with one. You have two kidneys but you can live with only one.
We have two ovaries but it only takes one for a successful pregnancy.
There are also many biochemical backup systems in the body. So why wouldn’t the body want a back up plan for its reproductive system? Why wouldn’t it want to provide you with the ability to make more eggs in the same way that men make more sperm?
A recent study at Harvard Medical School with Massachusetts General Hospital discovered evidence that may override the old theory of eggs and egg life. The study found that female mice have germ-line stem cells in their ovaries that can make new eggs throughout the female’s fertile life. This has profound implications for us.

The Quality of Your Eggs
These little seeds need food and energy to evolve properly. As your egg prepares for ovulation, it is responding to the body system around it – in the same way that every part of your body responds to your body system.
If there is a good flow of energy and if the quality of the blood feeding your system is good, then your eggs will be better quality. They will look better under the microscope and they will respond better. The DNA will be more stable.
If you improve the quality of the health of your body – then the quality of your eggs will also be improved.
Healthy…or Not Healthy?
• Poor diet
• Constant stress hormones
• Toxic Drugs
• Excessive Alcohol
then your egg development will respond negatively.
The Good News…
Natural medicine, Chinese Medicine recognizes that each woman is different and so each woman needs to be helped in with a different strategy.
Your Natural Fertility Plan will includes specific herbal formulas, fertility rich food recommendaitons, and special movement exercises and massage to destress your body and get your energy moving freely. Without good energy there is no good health.
In the first month you will see positive changes in the quality of your life. You may feel more energy, have better digestion, better sleep, and positive changes in your menses.
You Don’t Have To Change Your Entire Lifestyle
Higher Stress Hormones Have a Negative Effect on Reproductive Hormones…Here’s How We Can Help
If you’re trying to conceive, the bad news is that stress hormones affect reproductive hormones.
The good news is that your Fertility Plan is embedded with de-stressing herbal formulas and techniques to help your body deal with challenge without taking on so much stress. For example, our Radiant Eight Energy Exercises can make a profound difference to the levels of stress hormones in your body.
We definitely encourage you to make the simple, 20 minute exercise routine of standing stretches a part of any program you are on.
Turning Back Your Biological Clock – Your Ability to Respond
There are two ages involved here..
1. Your chronological age…which is your age in years.
2. Your biological age…the ‘age’ that your body is functioning at – which doesn’t always match your chronological age.
You can renew yourself in a profound way. As your energy reserves become deeper you feel more stable. You have more consistent energy through out the day. You sleep better. Your mental state and emotions are more stable, too. You feel like ‘’yourself’’ again.
