Anti-Histimines and breast milk production

Spring is the time of allergies for many, breastfeeding moms included. The common approach is to take an anti-histimine to help alleviate your suffering. 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! 

Testimonial

Pam, thank you so much! About a year ago, you counseled me about the wisdom of letting my body right itself after an IUD removal and not to worry, that our baby would come. Everything is playing out just like you said, all without medical intervention. Within 6 months of using your VitexPregnant Mother's Liver Tonic, and Preconception Tincture—the Hashimoto’s reversed and my thyroid numbers balanced themselves without any allopathic intervention!  In 6 more months, I now have my thick beautiful hair back and am newly pregnant with our first baby!  He or she is due in early December, so it will be the best Christmas ever for us!  L.C.
