The Fertility App Symbol on your Phone  is the easy-to-use app that allows us to chart

I have had requests for an app symbol to access the app easily from the home screen of phone or tablet.  Because the app is not on the app store, an app symbol does not immediately show up on your home screen when you go to the link. I did not put the app on the app store because I wanted the app to work on all phones.  But here is how to get the symbol:
To save the Fertility icon to your home screen:

When using Google Crome browser: download the app from the link above. Look in the upper right hand corner for 3 little dots stacked vertically. Click on the dots. You will see some choices. Click on Options. Then click on Add to Home Screen.  This should put the symbol on your home screen – a blue drop with Fertility written underneath.

When using Safari: Download the app from the above link. Look in the upper right hand corner for a box with an upward-facing arrow.  Click the box. You will see various options. Click on Add to Home Screen.  You should now have a blue water drop symbol with Fertility written underneath it.

Dissolving Tumors with Castor Oil

The hardest thing about self healing may be the necessary switch of  allegiance from the medical establishment to natural remedies and our own intuition.  If you can, or have already, made that switch, you will learn to treasure the following simple, although messy, remedy that will protect your loved ones from tumors of all kinds.

Over the years I have seen this remedy work for myself, my friends, and my daughters.  It gives me peace of mind that it will be passed on to my grand daughters.

In Spanish, castor oil is called “The Hand of Christ.” Once you become familiar with it, you will understand why. So here is how to use a pack of castor oil to dissolve tumors:

It will be best if you take on the task of making and applying the castor oil pack for your loved one – at least the first time.

  1. Have your “client” sit or lie down comfortably.  Let’s say the tumor is on the breast.
  2. Make sure to have your client sit or lie on a towel or a water-proof sheet to protect your furniture. Also make sure they are wearing old clothes. Even though you are careful,  some of the castor oil will certainly escape to unintended places.
  3. Cut a piece of old towel large enough to cover the breast and the area around the breast – liver area, lymph tissue under arm, etc.
  4. Saturate the cloth with castor oil and heat the castor oil-soaked cloth on a skillet.  Turn it over with tongs until it is very warm but not enough to burn.  Feel it carefully. The cloth should be warm and soggy, but not dripping.
  5. Carefully lay the cloth over the tumor and surrounding area, being careful the temperature is comfortable for the client.
  6. Place a piece of plastic over the warm cloth. I usually cut up a plastic bag for this purpose.
  7. Over the plastic, place a heating pad. Over the  heating pad, place a thick towel to hold in the heat.
  8. Now, both of you relax, and have a cup of tea and chat, etc. You will want to keep the pack on the site for an hour. The new heating pads have a safety shut-off at 15 – 20 minutes. Therefore you will need to turn the heating pad off and on a few times to keep it warm/hot for the full hour.
  9. The above procedure should be repeated daily until the tumor is dissolved.  I have seen breast tumors dissolve in 10 days, and huge uterine fibroids shrink to half size in two months.
  10. Tips:  Frankincense essential oil is reputed to have tumor dissolving qualities, and so some women like to rub a drop of Frankincense oil on the tumor before beginning the castor oil pack treatment.
  11. According to herbalists, tumors indicate a lack of potassium.  Tell your client eat their greens! A green supplement is also a good idea – alfalfa or barley powder. Swanson’s has a concentrated coconut water that is a potassium supplement. It tastes pretty good when added to juice or regular coconut water.
  12. While chatting with your client, make sure you take care of any unanswered questions about her body.  Make sure she knows you love her.
  13. Thanks for being the Wise Woman in your family and community.

Problems with the NuvaRing

Problems with NuvaRing

“Easy. Safe. That’s really how it was presented — easy, safe, low-dose hormone — you know, and it turns out it wasn’t. It wasn’t that at all,” she said.

Even though NuvaRing has about the same risk for blood clots as newer birth control pills, Henry said she wishes she had known that the incidence of life-threatening blood clots is double with NuvaRing compared to older birth control pills.

“There are other options out there for birth control that have risks, but not doubling the risks,” Henry told CNN. “If I would have known that I never would have taken it.”

Getting Pregnant Naturally

First, relax and breath.  Some questions:  Have you been on hormonal birth control?  If so, how long has it been since discontinuing it?  Depending on the method used, it can take from 6 months to 2 years for fertility to return.  Be patient.

Since hormonal contraception interferes with the natural flow of hormones, I recommend a good herbal fertility combination.  Here is one I like:  In addition, since hormonal methods stress the liver, I also recommend taking as well.  Of course, even if you have never used hormonal birth control, herbal formulas for the female reproductive system are still recommended.  These two, female formula and liver formula, are also very good:

For your diet, choose foods grown without chemicals.  Eat healthy fats:  butter, coconut oil, coconut oil, cod liver oil/butter oil from Eat green, leafy vegetables, pasture-raised eggs, meat, bone broth. All grains should be soaked for about 8 hours before cooking to improve digestibility.

Keep a chart of your signs of fertility as discussed on, in the free download called, Fertility Awareness.  If you do not conceive in the first few cycles, continue observing and charting your signs of fertility, but add the following:

Castor oil pack over abdomen 3 – 4 times weekly.  To make a castor oil pack, cut a piece of old terry cloth big enough to cover lower abdomen.  Place cloth on pan or griddle and warm on stove, soaking cloth with castor oil. Leave on heat until very warm but not hot enough to burn.  Place castor oil soaked cloth on lower abdomen, cover with a piece of plastic, and lie down to rest for about an hour with hot water bottle or heating pad over castor oil pack.  Repeat 3 – 4 times weekly.  Do not underestimate castor oil pack.  In Spanish it is called “Hand of Christ.”  I have known women to dissolve tumors, ovarian cysts, and open clogged fallopian tubes with castor oil packs.

On the off days, when not doing a castor oil pack, massage the lower abdomen deeply but gently for as long as is comfortable. After the abdominal massage, massage the feet, especially the big toe on each foot. The reflexology point for the pituitary is on the big toe.  The pituitary is the beginning of the cycle of ovulation.

Speak to the child that you are inviting. Send her/him love. Be grateful for everything you have.

Let me know if you have questions on the above.

Many Blessings,  Marie

Signs of Fertility in a Woman’s Body

WomanOnMoonObservation of your fertile type mucus is the most user-friendly and culturally acceptable fertility indicator. If you are achieving pregnancy, the mucus is your best friend. If you are avoiding pregnancy, I recommend that you also learn to recognize other fertility indicators. Download out my free ebook.

Charting the mucus for info only lets you know in advance when you will begin your next menstruation. No more being caught by surprise! Although each woman is different, the time between the day of ovulation and the next menstruation is about 11 – 16 days. After charting for a few cycles, you will know how long this time is for you.

The mucus lets us know that an ovum is maturing and is about to be released into the fallopian tube. We notice it outside the vagina during our normal daily activity – such as when we go to the bathroom. At first we may confuse the fertile wetness with vaginal secretions. Vaginal secretions are part of the vagina’s normal self-cleansing process and do not indicate fertility. Fertile type mucus is produced by the cervix during the fertile time of the cycle. It is different from vaginal secretions.

If you observe and chart for a cycle, you may see how clearly your body signals your fertility. It may give you a feeling that your body is on your side, and not trying to trick you into conceiving.

Or, you may end up feeling unsure of what you are observing. In that case, keep studying the ebook mentioned above, and keep observing and keeping a chart.

Charting the Mucus Sign

1) Menstruation: Chart bleeding for all bleeding.

2) Dry Days: Chart dry on the days when you feel nothing and see nothing outside the vagina. Dry means nothing seen and nothing felt.

3) Mucus Days: Chart mucus if you feel or see something (anything) outside the vagina. You may observe something sticky, pasty, creamy, or just a wet feeling.

4) Slippery Wet days: Chart slippery if you feel a slippery feeling, even if there is no mucus visible. Slippery is an indication of the rise of estrogen. It means that the ovum is about to be released.

5) Key Day: Key Day is the last day of any slippery mucus or slippery feeling. It is the most fertile day and is probably the day of ovulation.

Knowing the signs of fertility will give you a feeling of empowerment and participation in all the cycles of Nature.

Enjoy,  Marie
