Is the “Pregnancy Miracle” Really a Miracle?

pregnancy miracleES writes: “My husband and I have been trying to conceive a child for the last four years, and a well-meaning friend recently sent me a link to a website claiming to guarantee your conceiving a child by following their ‘scientifically proven’ steps.

Have you heard anything about ‘Pregnancy Miracle – Free Infertility Cure Presentation?’ It is interesting to me they say it is free, but you can buy it for the ‘low low price of $47’.

The Secret book coverCA writes: “My sisters combine the ‘theology,’–and I use that term loosely–of the book, The Secret, with solid Catholic teaching. They both have devotions to the saints, the rosary, go to Sunday Mass, etc. That’s why I find it so troubling. Something in my gut tells me this book’s advice cannot be fully reconciled with the Truth found in our Church. . . . (D)o you have any information that specifically addresses the issues of using the mind to “create a life,” and how does one factor in God’s will into that?”

Asyra Machines Can’t Diagnose Anything

asyraKC writes: “I was just seen by a naturopath at a holistic store and she used the Asyra machine. She told me that this machine was approved by the FDA in detecting illnesses. She said that this machine has been used since the 1970’s and is recognized by licensed doctors in Europe. Is this information correct? Finding many conflicting reports online.”
