I just wanted to rave about one of your products I've been using! I ordered the Skullcap Tincture. I have so much trouble sleeping during pregnancy, from hip pain to insomnia to headaches - something usually keeps me awake. I was originally getting some for my mother, but decided to try it myself as well. I've been using it for 3-4 weeks now (often, but not every night) and I've been getting the best, most restful sleep I've ever gotten during pregnancy! With my last pregnancy, I even ended up sleeping on the floor most nights. Not this time - I'm sleeping like a baby! Thanks! S.M.
Spring and summer are high-allergy times for many, breastfeeding moms included. The common approach is to take an anti-histimine to help alleviate the symptoms. You may not know, however, that these antihistimines can also decrease or dry up breastmilk! These medications are made to dry up secretions and fluids - it will not differentiate between the different body fluids and will commonly decrease breastmilk production. So keep this in mind if you're thinking of resorting to those anti-histimines!
A helpful and effective alternative is the herb Nettle (also known as Stinging Nettle). Its fine for use while pregnant or breastfeeding, and is highly nutritious. Many people swear by this herb to alleviate their allergy symptoms! Homeopathy is also very effective in alleviating allergies!
