How do you spread the NaPro word?

I had my yearly exam with my ob/gyn. I told him I wasn't seeing the RE he recommended me to anymore after our birthcontrol spat. He was completely supportive and asked who was monitoring me for my Synthroid and Metformin perscription. At this time...nobody. He referred me to another RE in the area (one he says is not so pushy). I told him that I was going to go to a NaPro doctor and he looked at me like I had three heads. He said "What?" I wasn't really sure how to answer him. We talked about it for a few minutes, but he was really stuck on an RE because they are ob/gyns and endocrinologist (or something to that effect). I told him about Dr. Hilgers and the training the doctors go through and he still wasn't sure about it. He said "I wasn't taught that in medical school."

At the end though, he said you have to do what you are comfortable with and he will help in anyway he can. WHAT DOCTOR SAYS THIS?!?!? I was soo surprised!! And so excited! He's willing to do anything he can to help my NaPro doctor! I'm wondering what, if any information I can give him to help him understand about NaPro. He may not be too interested, but I would like to give him something. Do you guys have any ideas?

I'm counting down the days to my NaPro appointment...only 1 month! Whoo hoo!

Totally different subject - I had a little IF breakdown last week. The first time (maybe second time) I actually CRIED about IF jealousy. My 19 year old step-son's girlfriend is pregnant. We had a scare with the 17 year old last year, but this time (with the older son) it is for real. She is really pregnant...about 20 weeks and having a boy (YES we JUST found out). I'm going to be a grandma! BOOO!


  1. Wow! Your doctor sounds great!

    You must be in shock about your step-son! There really is no justice!

  2. Tell him about the NaPro Technology Textbook for physicians, and also the new book geared more towards the layperson - (can be found on Amazon). If he's truly interested, he can read more about it there.

    So sorry to hear about your step-son and his girlfriend. Life is not fair :(
