Itching During Pregnancy (PUPPS)

We frequently get clients who are pregnant and are experiencing itchiness.  This is more than just your average itchiness from stretching or dry skin – it can be extreme and really awful to experience.  It’s called PUPPS or cholestasis.  Along with the terrible itching, symptoms can also include brown/dark yellow urine (like beer), light-colored stool, bloodwork showing high liver enzymes, and high bile acid.  We have had tremendous success with our clients using liver herbs. (I have created a product specifically for this called

Itch Relief Tincture.)

Relief doesn’t come immediately, but after a few days of use, clients have reported that it gets better and better each day.  Much better.  I had a client in Texas, pregnant with twins, who had one of the most extreme cases I’d ever come across.  They were threatening to induce her twins early as they were very worried about their well-being as well as the well-being of the mother.  She started on the Itch Relief Tincture, and she began to respond very quickly.  She improved so much that they cancelled the induction and she went on to carry her babies nearly to term (labor started on its own, in its own perfect time) and she had the beautiful Birth Center birth that she wanted!  Mom and both babies were all completely healthy and fine!

Now that makes my day!

Testimonial

Pam, I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am for you and all you do. My little girl has lots of trouble sleeping and the non-alcohol Goodnight Tincture and Teething Tincture are our saviors!  After she was born, I was doing really well emotionally but the last couple of months felt myself falling into depression and heightened anxiety. I do all the usual vitamins and supplements for it, and started taking my placenta (which I’d saved just in case!), but it wasn’t enough and I’ve been struggling so much. I decided to add Happy Day Tincture and Vitex and within a week started feeling a significant shift.  It’s not perfect yet but I feel some hope and like there’s definitely been a turn around. Thank you for all you do and the products you create with such care!  N.R.
