Extra virgin olive oil can be use for the treatment of infertility in both men and women. Most infertility cases are as a result of hormonal problems, 40% of infertility in woman can be traced back to not having enough hormones in the system which could be referred as to having a hormonal imbalance. I can’t be called a gynecologist or a medical practitioner but the purpose of writing this hub is to share my experience with those who may be going through infertility, and also out of my 7 years childlessness experience and how I got pregnant through the use of extra olive oil, honey and mustard seed.


Before Using Extra Virgin Olive Oil For The Healing Of Infertility

I got married in the year 2001 to my hubby, after the wedding we had so much plans which includes raising our own family immediately, but these plans was putting into standstill as a result of childlessness. As the days roll into months I began to get worried of what could be the cause of me not getting pregnant. I could no longer enjoy my marriage due to infertility, I was worried, devastated and feel rejected in fact I almost opted out of the marriage just to save my face. The steps below are the steps I took while trying to get pregnant.

Steps I Took To Get My Infertility Healed

In the year 2003 I went for an infertility test which prove that I was 100% ok to pregnant at any time I wish to, but after a year passed by and no pregnancy I went for another test hoping to hear what the real cause is, at this particular test I was tested of having hormonal imbalance which is the reason why I have not gotten pregnant. On the 3rd of March 2005 I was placed on a hormonal drugs which was supposed to last for 6months. After the 6months have elapse yet no pregnancy I lost all hope of ever getting pregnant again I went back to the clinic on Nov 8th 2005 to seek for medical advise, on getting to the clinic I was told that the medication would continue at least for 2years before any other kind of medication would be prescribed again.

Devastated I left the clinic about to board a taxi when I bumped into an old school friend of mine who happen to be at my wedding, she asked after my husband and kids which I told her that I have no kids at present, I also told her that the reason of my visiting the clinic was due to my inability to get pregnant. In fact I narrated my ordeal to her and she told me to see her the next day, when I got to her place the next day she introduced me to a trado-herbal medical practitioner who ran another test on me and told me that actually the problem was really due to hormonal imbalance which could be corrected or enhanced if am ready to go through a therapy called the olive oil, honey, mustard seed therapy. He also told me that if I can follow his prescriptions very well that by the grace of God I would get pregnant.

When I left the trado-medical center I just told my self that am not going to fall to this kind of treatment, in fact I was not too sure if I was really going to get pregnant by just using ordinary extra virgin olive oil, I was expecting something else not this. So I never went back to the trado-medical doctor again.

The next year being 2006 I traveled to another city, my husband was transferred so I have to move with him, on getting there one of my husbands colleague who happens to be a family friend promised to introduce us a someone who would run test on both of us to know the real cause of the infertility, so another test was run and yet another confirmation of hormonal imbalance, I was placed on yet another hormonal drugs, yet no pregnancy occurred after one year of using it. After that particular treatment I stopped taking any other form of treatment from any one who claimed to have the right kind of medications for me.

Then on the 6th of May 2008I was introduced to a lady who also came from a different city to work in that particular city. She was not a medical doctor neither was she a gynecologist, but she was a woman who stayed for 10years in marriage without a child. We talked on length and I asked her what she did to overcome her own side of infertility, she told me that the problem she was having was also hormonal imbalance that prevented her from getting pregnant all those years of childlessness. She now told me of how she got her healing through olive oil, honey, mustard seed therapy, I was shocked at first because I have asked to go through that same therapy before 3years back which I refused so hearing that she got her healing and hormonal corrections through the use of that same therapy I almost screamed.


After that chat with this lady I rushed immediately to get an extra virgin olive oil, honey and mustard seed. I already knew how to prepare the mixture for the therapy, so that was not a problem.

Remember that I rejected this same treatment before but now I just want to try my luck and see if I would have the same result as the lady I spoke with after all am the one who is going to prepare the olive oil mixture; so I mixed the olive oil as directed;

Directions: Ferment about 100grams of mustard seed with 25cl original honey for 2days then on the second day mix the fermented mustard seed and honey with a bottle of 75cl extra virgin olive oil allow to soak for another 24 hours. Take 3spoonful of the mixture first thing in the morning and last thing at night for at least 6months.

After I took the olive oil mixture for 3 months I almost got discouraged but for my husbands continuous encouragement by the end of the fourth month I missed my period, at first I did not want to go for a pregnancy test but on a second I went for a pregnancy test on the 15th of October 2008 only for the result to confirm that am pregnant, my joy knew no bound after 7years am going to be a mother. I began all the necessary preparations for welcoming my baby like buying the baby cribs, infant shoes, baby walker, baby cradle and the rest of them.

On June 2nd 2009 I gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. As I hold him in my arms my joy knew no bound, I was fulfilled. Now as I looked back and ponder what would have happened if I have not refused to take that olive oil mixture at first I would have been a mother of 5years old kid, but in all I still thank God for giving me this wonderful gift of life. You too can be a mother only if you give this a trial, all the ingredients are natural and so have no side effect. And you can prepare this at home following the procedures and quantity prescribed above.

Please always consult with your medical practitioner for advice.

May be someone out there knows what i am talking about and know how its like to be invisible mostly by the one person you are in love with. I was in love an unhappy married man.His marriage was going to limbo and i was the only one there for him. He only saw me as a friend but he was more than that to me. I wish i had the heart to tell him before the went ahead and got married then, may be he would never had be unhappy and may be we both would have been together. Yeah it turned out i was too much or a chicken. Though we are together now literally because of the spell Metodo Acamu a very powerful spell caster i must say helped me cast to make him love me just as i loved him. A lot of people may have different opinion as to if what is did is wrong or right but really, it do not matter because he was in pain and his life was falling to pieces and i was his friend who was in love with him. I knew he was going to be happy with me and he is now. For the first time in three years i have he really happy i mean he tells me every time how free he feels . We are perfect together and i know we are always going to be like this. This would not be the case if not for the spell Metodo Acamu helped me cast. All that was required of me were just the materials that was going to be used to prepare the spell and note Metodo Acamu does not do spells for money i wish i knew why but i do not. He told me that i should get the materials needed for the spell preparing he told me to get them myself and if i can't find the materials all i had to do was send the total cost for it so he can help me. It wasn't easy to get them but i found them but it took a lot form me i would advice against getting them yourself because there are not only hard to but also difficult to mail believe me. I am only writing this short article for those out there with problems similar to the one i had. If you want to contact him use this email its what i used metodoacamufortressx@(yahoo). com

Bitten Once (author) on July 23, 2014:

use the black or yellow mustard seed it all the same effect as along as the mixture is properly done. grind or blend the mustard seed, soak with honey and add your olive oil. naturally the oil will stay on top while the rest will be at the bottom. this does not affect the efficacy of this natural remedy. all you do is to shake whenever you want to take it. Hope this answers your question.

teba on July 03, 2014:

@maggy..I use d black mustard seed cos that is what is available n my area.I blend it wit a blender into a powder form before mixing it wit honey for 48hrs.after dat I add extra virgin olive oil for another 24hrs.then mix d mixture with a mixer before drinking n d morin and at nit.I mix it often cos it settle after some times leaving mustard and honey at d bottom and oil at d top

We live together with two other people and we would love to raise one or more children in our midst, with our four. I read the comments above and I would really want to know which mustard seeds you used. Maybe you can tell more about how the fermantation works with the mustard seed and the honey and how you mix this (and keep it mixed) with the olive oil. And I suppose 3 spoons full in the morning and before sleeping is tablespoons, I suppose. Thank you. We live and play music together. Maybe you like to see our website

Thanks for replying to my prevous question; i am not here to dispute the ingredients, but my girlfriend thinks 75cl of virgin olive oil is too much; well probable because she saw my mixture as all the oilve oil is ontop and the honey and mustard seed are just on the bottom of the container as if blocked . do think you i made a mistake? i used 100gram black mustard seed, 25cl liquid pure honey and 75cl virgin olive oil.

Bitten Once (author) on December 22, 2013:

The mixture must be properly mixed before you drink. Whenever you want to drink it make sure you mix very well.

Bitten Once (author) on November 14, 2013:

jummy on February 28, 2011:


This is a very good idea,I want to ask if this can be use by my spouse.

LS on February 08, 2011:

I first heard of this from a friend's husband who first heard about this remedy from a trado-healer. The trado-healer's remedy only comprised of honey and mustard seed. I did a search on the internet to see if someone else might have heard of it only to find this. I am now very optimistic about it.

I have bought all the ingredients and I'm going to give this a try. My hormones have been outta whack for a while. Hopefully, I won't have to go the full length of IVF, but even if I do, at least my hormones will be operating normally and will do what they are supposed to do for the process.

Bitten Once (author) on January 31, 2011:
