Question about conceiving at age 45

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009


I was wondering if your book would be appropriate for someone trying to conceive at 45? I had a great pregnancy at 42 and would like to repeat my good luck. I would love to do this naturally if at all possible. I know I’ll need to do my best to be in peak health and am looking for guidance and support in this endeavor. Have you had experience with anyone as old as I am and would your book be a good reference for me?

Thank you for your time.


My books describe night lighting techniques and information about nutrient-dense foods that strengthen reproductive health. If that sounds good to you, I hope you enjoy them.

Best of luck,

Question about Thermometers

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009


I’ve posted a question – and my response – about thermometers.

Hi Katie,

I am really enjoying all the information your book provides. I have a
question about thermometers. Do I need to use a basal body temperature
specific thermometer or will a regular digital one work. I am also trying
out my third thermometer and they all give me different numbers at the
same time. The second one has a quick 8 second read time but is that too short
for an accurate number?



Thanks for your question. A digital thermometer that registers temperature
in increments of 1/10 — not 2/10 — is what you need. Also, I have heard
that you need to wait at least five minutes after taking your temperature
with a digital thermometer to get an accurate second reading. Last, I hope
that the three thermometers you’re testing are not giving you readings
that are significantly different from each other. That fact that they are
different is reason to stick with one thermometer per cycle and to take
your temperature in the same location (under your tongue or under your
arm) everyday.
