Greetings Sister Tribe! The Fertility Vibe is continuing to flow! If any of you missed part 1 of “Reclaim Our Fertility”, you can read it first!
To be clear, m’Sisters… none of my writings are intended as a substitute for the advice provided by our physicians or other medical professionals.
However, I feel most passionately that it’s time we women trust our guts! If we feel like we need a doctor, listen to ourselves and go! Take charge of our health, Ladies! We only get one body in this life so treat it like a Goddess ❤
If our gut instincts are letting us know that we can heal naturally, and that’s what we want, make it a priority! This could be our #1 miracle breakthrough with Spirit guiding our way, followed by our inspired action! Cuz let’s face it, we can receive all the insight in the Universe, literally, that Spirit has to offer, but if we don’t follow through with our Divine Downloads we’ll be running around in frantic circles wondering why we’re not manifesting our dreams… Ready! Spirit! Action!
I believe in us and our bodies… millions of couples got together through millennia to create these unique versions of us that we are today… we’re frickin’ miracles, Sisters!
In part 1, I listed the 7 Best Doctors and shared one of Dr. Christopher’s simple fertility programs. We brought in our Inner Kali to slay the Ego-mind in service to Life. We touched on the truth that our bodies ARE innate Intelligence that know how to heal themselves when given the right tools to get the job done.
Today in part 2, I’ll share a miracle story that is truly and inspiring! Next, we’ll briefly take another look at the 7 Best Doctors, and then connect with the herbal wisdom of the ancients. Finally, we’ll see how simple it is to make one simple change in our daily routine that will make an incredible impact on our health and fertility. I will share resources and recipes along the way. Now let’s dive in to our Divine Power rooted in the abundant gifts of Mother Earth!
Dr. Christopher had a habit of curing the incurables with Mother Earth’s gifts. The following example is to enlighten our minds and awaken our Souls to the awe-inspiring power of good nutrition through diet and herbs:
“As he [Dr. Christopher] used the Blood Stream Formula in his practice, he found that it had powers that surprised even him. One of these was the ability to reverse the Rh factor in the bloodstream, long considered a genetic trait that could not be “cured” or reversed. A baby born to an Rh-negative mother and an Rh-positive father develops severe complications, extensive liver damage, and life-threatening blood clotting if not treated immediately. Traditionally, the only “treatment” was complete draining of the baby’s blood followed by total blood transfusion. Sometimes the treatment is successful, but in some cases the baby dies or develops permanent complications.
A woman in Brigham City, Utah, was an excellent example of both the problem and the proper treatment. She had borne three children, all of whom had inherited the Rh factor problem, and all of whom had narrowly escaped death as they struggled through the blood transfusion at birth. When she underwent open-heart surgery a few years later, her obstetrician gave her the stem warning that another pregnancy would very probably kill both her and her baby. She and her husband yearned for a large family, however, and approached Dr. Christopher’s study group with a plea for help.
Ray started her on a basic program that included a sound diet. That’s not all. He asked her to drink at least a gallon of steam-distilled water each day, and at least a quart of red raspberry tea each day. He advised a three-day juice cleanse once each month, and prescribed daily doses of the Blood Stream Formula.
After a time on the program prescribed for her, the woman became pregnant. She adhered to the program Ray prescribed for her throughout the pregnancy, and she suffered no complications. At its culmination, she delivered a strong, healthy baby completely free of the Rh factor. During the ensuing years, she and her husband became the parents of two more Rh-free babies.” Read more about it here…
There are 12 herbs in Dr. Christopher’s “Blood Stream” formula. I don’t have room to write about all 12 herbs now, but I will discuss some of them as Nourishing Herbs. This is also known as the Hoxey formula or formerly Red Clover Combination. You can read all about the miracles of Hoxey here…
2 of these 12 herbs can be taken in large doses on a daily basis as Nourishing Herbal Infusions. I’ll be giving the details on that in a bit…
Pop-Quiz, Goddesses! Can you name the 7 Best Doctors?
- Rest & Sleep
Or… how about a nerdy little acronym with a play on phonics… SWEADERS! Ha!
These 7 Best Doctors, SWEADERS, have been practiced by our ancestors from the very beginning of humans. SWEADERS is living ancient wisdom passed down through literally MILLIONS of years that we are tapping into every time we put these into practice! Wow! Connect with that, Sister Tribe!
To make this a little more real for me, my paternal great-grandmother was a Curandera and people called on her for healing. A Curandera is a Native Healer, a Shaman, a witch doctor (a name I am not afraid of )… I never met her, but when my cousin told me our great-grandmother was a Curandera, I wept. I felt SO connected with my ancestor, like she knew my heart, and I hers. I believe she has been one of my angels whispering in my ear all my life.
I know, through deep spiritual work and soul searching, from the core of my being, if I lived indigenously I would be the tribe’s healer, Curandera, the medicine woman, the shaman; it’s my heritage on Earth, it’s literally in my blood and it feels from the very center of me… my birthright… and I wept and wept and wept… connecting with great-grandmother and all my ancestors; my life and the way I am finally made sense to me.
Friends and clients have been calling me for 20 years, at all hours to make healing house-calls (especially when they feel they’re desperate or at breaking point and they’re out of options). I have felt the power of the invisible realm right there with us, guiding me and supporting us. Knowing my core identity in this way is why I chose 11th Hour Shaman as my business name. I trust the spirit of plants and all our relatives! From the first moment I heard I could use herbs instead of pharmaceuticals in 1997, I trusted they would work, and they did. 20 years and four children (plus one grandbaby) later, I have never used anything but plants, energy work and natural therapies for healing my family. When I make those healing house-calls, I teach how to use herbs for health and give energy medicine such as Reiki. Herbs and energy work support the whole person… body, mind, heart and soul ❤
These healing house-calls are typically for acute situations, however, in the case of fertility, being a non-acute situation, personally I would use condoms or the Billings method to prevent pregnancy for 3-6 months (or a year if needed) while my partner and I sorted out our health. We want the healthiest sperm and eggs we can possible make! I would start with very simple additions to my dietary routines, one simple change at a time, so as not to get overwhelmed by radical transformations (too much too fast!).
When it comes to our feminine health and fertility… we are talking about permanent lifestyle habits to pass on to the future generations we create.
This is where we get into Nourishing Herbal Infusions. This concept was brought into the herbal community decades ago by a wise woman: Susun Weed. These are food-like nutrient-dense herbs that we can drink every day throughout our lifetimes!
I gave a recipe in My Divine Compass’ most recent newsletter about Nourishing Herbal Infusions in a downloadable PDF that I will share with you right here:
Each herb could fill pages and pages with mind-blowing information about the diverse uses of plants. The art of herbalism is not at all like Western medicine where there is a specific man-made pill for each malady that comes with side-effects. Each nature-made plant can wear many hats, and safely, too! For example, one plant could be: alterative, nutritive, emmenagogue, anti-microbial, nervine, sedative… and on and on… They are power-packed with phytonutrients that all work synergistically, giving us vibrant health and uplifted souls ❤
Now, let’s get SMART! SMART goals I mean…
- S – specific, significant, stretching
- M – measurable, meaningful, motivational
- A – attainable, achievable, acceptable, agreed upon, action-oriented
- R – realistic, relevant, reasonable, rewarding, results-oriented
- T – time-based, time-bound, timely, tangible, trackable
“Many people fail in life, not for lack of ability or brains or even courage, but simply because they have never organized their energies around a goal.”
– Elbert Hubbard
I believe we all have the ability and courage to heal; we just need to organize our energies around our goal! Our goal in this case, as women, is pain-free Moon Cycles and/or natural fertility. That’s “S.” It’s very specific.
S = pain-free Moon Cycles and/or natural fertility
M = we are highly motivated by pain to NOT feel pain! …and making a baby is one of the most meaningful goals many of us choose… but how about measurable? I’d like to invite each of us to track our cycles on a pain scale… 10 being the worst ever! And 1 being awesome! Paying attention to our bodies every day, tracking pain (emotional and/or physical). For those us tracking our discharge and bleeding times, charting or using an app is great, too! Others might be linking their temperatures to their ovulation, emotions, and physical symptoms; all measurable and trackable. Watching these change as new healthy habits are formed will be very motivational!
A = Action-Oriented and achievable steps to attaining our goal will be very simple, but very effective over time.
- Time-management/scheduling: what time of day will we make our Nourishing Herbal Infusion? Morning, mid-day, or before bed? Set an alarm to remind Self.
- Daily Nourishing Herbal Infusions. This will only take as much time per day as it does to boil 4 cups of water. Then strain it 8 hours later. Drink it up, YUM!
- Do NOT ingest cow’s milk products, ever! Especially if processed sugar has been added.
R – realistic, reasonable… results-oriented… as we track, we will see our results. Track the following on a calendar:
- Did I drink my Nourishing Herbal Infusion today?
- Which herb?
- Did I ingest cow’s milk products today? If Yes, be specific. Put it on your calendar so you can get a clear visual of your week and month. Did it have added sugar
- How were my emotions, pains, discharges, blood, etc… today?
- Have I noticed any other changes that I was not expecting such as: acne, energy, etc…
T – enough time to achieve the goal… some women may reach their goal in one Moon Cycle. Other women could take many Moons.
The body prioritizes it’s needs, though we be unaware. I remember watching a documentary with Dr. Gabriel Cousens about reversing diabetes naturally in 30 days! Every person, but one woman, was experiencing dramatic improvements with their blood sugar levels dropping. This woman was having emotional difficulties as her blood sugar had not changed at all, and she nearly gave up. Thankfully, she decided to stay with Dr. Cousens and stick with the program… eventually her blood sugar finally dropped, but not until the lumps in her breasts, that had been there for years, disappeared! When this woman finally gave her body a chance to heal through a healthy diet, her body’s wisdom knew to firstprioritize the lumps, then the blood sugar! She was elated!
In our A = Action step, I mentioned cow’s milk products… Volumes have been written about cow’s milk products from the teachings of Dr. Christopher, the Campbell’s book, “The China Study,” to an older book, “Milk, The Deadly Poison.” Other countries with indigenous lifestyles typically use goat’s milk, never pasteurized, and usually fermented into kefir or yogurt using natural ancient methods passed on for countless generations. They receive positive results.
However, American cow’s milk is simply not the same. It creates an unhealthy mucus all throughout our bodies, including our reproductive organs. After I was on a strict raw vegan diet for about a year and a half, my body dropped a huge silver-dollar sized glob of mucus… later that day my body released another quarter-sized gloop. I was astonished! Dr. Christopher was right and I could see it with my very own eyes! From then on, my Moon Cycles were light for three days, never pain nor twinges (I wish I had known this in 8th grade)! I had not used herbs to expedite any healing for my reproductive system because I didn’t realize I needed healing there! We just don’t know, what we don’t know!
Because I’m a wordy-girl, and super-passionate about fertility and natural healing… I have run out of room! I don’t want to leave my dear Sisters without those Nourishing Herbal Infusions for fertility I mentioned… so I have created another downloadable PDF (with tons of valuable information about each herb) to put to good use immediately! For those of us that just want to make the Nourishing Herbal Infusions without reading up on them… Download this pdf e-book here for
- Red Clover Blossoms
- Red Raspberry Leaf
1 ounce of dried cut herb to 4 cups water. Put 1 ounce herb in a glass quart jar. Bring water to boil then pour over herbs in quart jar. Stir the herbs a bit, then screw the two-piece lid on tight. Let steep 8 hours or overnight. Strain. Drink within 24 hours. If refrigerated, it will last 48 hours. Typically, drink just one herb per day. You can have that one herb all week or so, if desired. Then switch to the next. In the PDF, you’ll find more options and details about the recipes and the healing properties of our plant friends ❤
These Nourishing Herbal Infusions, along with Dr. Christopher’s simple fertility program as posted in part 1, is a great simple start for any woman to reclaim her health!
