First without you and your amazing products I’m not sure I would’ve survived the deep deep dark postpartum depression I experienced with my beautiful fifth baby boy in this past year. The stresses of life had so negatively impacted my breastfeeding and nursing so much that for the first time ever my normally over-productive milk supply was drying up. Your tinctures, teas and supportive words were so helpful. I just wanted to say thank you for sharing this nugget with your greater community. So valuable. (She's talking about a video on tapping for increasing breastmilk production found HERE on YouTube.) My husband and I have been studying the body, mind, wellness and really quantum healing and physics for many years. We’ve learned some other really amazing healing techniques. These, along with your guidance and products saved me from a place no new mama first of fifth time around should ever have to rest in alone. J.A.
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!
