Best Herbs to Increase Breastmilk Production

 

There are several herbs that work well to increase milk production.  You may be wondering which one is best for you!  Here is a brief summary - there is MUCH more information under Articles & Information and a more detailed and comprehensive one in the Premium Article section.  Here is a brief summary though:

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

Mastitis & Plugged Ducts

These were two unexpected and VERY unpleasant issues that began to creep up on me just 3 weeks after the birth of my daughter.  Actually it didn’t creep up at all - it actually happened very fast – one minute I was feeling fine and within a ½ hour, I was feeling horrible.  Like I had the worst flu of my life.  Fever, achiness - it seemed like there was pain everywhere.  And I had to take care of my new baby while I was feeling more horrible than I could ever remember feeling.  Finally we figured out that I had a breast infection.  I did the usual route of a round of antibiotics, which made

The Importance of Herb Freshness

I love to cook with herbs.  They give such amazing flavor and add to the health benefits of the foods being cooked.  I’m sure you like to use herbs for cooking too!  Have you ever used an old herb, something that’s been in your kitchen cupboard maybe a little too long?  How did it taste?  Probably ok, but not that great.  And maybe you couldn’t even taste it at all!  And now, have you used a fresh herb with your cooking?  Maybe something you’ve gotten fresh at the store or even picked out of your own garden?  It’s a HUGE difference in taste, isn’t it?  Well, this principle applies to medicinal herbs just like it does with culinary herbs – simply put, fresher herbs will give you MUCH better results. 

Testimonial

I'm 9 weeks pregnant with baby #2, and my HG (morning sickness) is much more manageable than with pregnancy #1.  I've been on both the Pregnancy Tea and Pregnant Mother's Liver Tonic for several months now, and am continuing it through this pregnancy.  That combined with fermented foods has clearly made a difference for me.  I'm so, so grateful for you!  Blessings on you 100-fold for the blessing you are to the women and families you serve!  N.R.
