Praise for Herb Lore

I would highly recommend Herb Lore and www.herblore.com to anyone looking for a knowledgeable resource and supply place for herbal products.  I have very little knowledge when it comes to herbs, but as a midwife, I much prefer this natural alternative.  All of my questions and concerns were listened to - they were very patient and very helpful.  I now keep on hand her Labor TincturePlacenta Release Tincture, and the Anti-Hemorrhage Tincture.  At the very first birth I took these to, we waited for the placenta for quite some time.  I finally gave one dose of the Placenta Tincture and not ten minutes later, the placenta came - with no problems and no extra bleeding.  I have a lot of clients who refuse any kind of allopathic treatment, and I'm thrilled to have these herbal products on hand and Herb Lore as a knowledgeable resource for those cases when I really need the extra help!    Sharon - Colorado midwife

I love your products and know I will be using more in the future! And thank you for the great service you provide! I just ordered some things for my son and I'm looking forward to seeing the benefits of your herbs for him. The friend I referred to you was very happy for the guidance and advice she was given as well! You really helped her with a problem she had been suffering with. Thank you! A.O'D.

My friend Jessica, who has 4 little ones now, used your products for her first 3 pregnancies, faithfully, and had 3 very easy/fast births.  Then with the 4th baby, last summer, she didn’t take any of your tinctures.  When I asked why, she didn’t really even know, I think she may have just felt like she’d done this easily/successfully so many times that she probably didn’t need all the herbs anymore.  Well, she ended up having her baby at home, as usual, and it was the hardest, longest, most painful birth ever.  Her second birth, by contrast, was completely pain-free (no drugs, of course, at home with her midwife).  So I have wondered if those tinctures made all the difference.  I used them for my births and all of them were so fast and easy, almost pain-free (the only pain I ever felt was in transition and then very shortly thereafter while pushing them out...but it was never extreme).  Anyhow, I think your products are worth more than gold!  A.A.

I strongly recommend Herb Lore's herbs, especially their Labor Tincture.  I have seen it work many times when other things have not, and I can highly recommend it over and above anything else.  I also live in the same community as Herb Lore, and I have been to their facility.  They use only organic herbs and the best and highest quality.  I have been impressed with Pam Caldwell's (Herb Lore's founder, company herbalist and creator of the Herb Lore line) knowledge of herbs and pregnancy and lactation, and have used their products to help with all sorts of problems that women in their childbearing years have.  Most midwives know a bit about herbs, but Pam's knowledge is far greater, and because of that, has created a highly effective line of herbal products.  I highly recommend using Herb Lore's products and their information as a valuable resource for anyone.  I also think anyone who uses their herbs, especially the Labor Tincture, will not go back to any of the alternatives.

Thank you so much!  Your products are a blessing!  We love your tinctures!  Your Placenta Release Tincture, in particular, has been amazing for our mothers here. Thank you for your wisdom, generosity, and love.  Your products save lives!  Thank you Pam Caldwell of Herb Lore for your support of Bumi Sehat's moms!  
Love, Ibu Robin

Thank you!  Herb Lore is literally the best company I have ever done business with!  I love you all so much!  M.B. 

Fertility, Hormone Balancing, Women’s Health

I just wanted to thank you for the WONDERFUL soothing Postpartum Sitz Bath Herbs!  I had surgery (enterocele/rectocele repair) a week ago.  Not only that, I ended up with a bladder infection due to the Foley catheter.  I came home sore, tearful, and incontinent.  Then came the yeast infection.  I ended up with 11 prescriptions.  Then I bought the Postpartum Sitz Bath Herbs and I've already made my third batch.  Aaaahhhhh!  I'm taking sitz baths and using a peri bottle to squirt the herbs onto the sore area.  I'm still tender, however I am SO much more comfortable!  I wish I had the herbs a week earlier!  I'm going to let my surgeon know!  Every woman having vaginal surgery should know that these herbs aren't just for postpartum!  Thanks again!  E.N.

I purchased your Vitex and within 6 weeks finally conceived and held the pregnancy!  I am now 39 weeks pregnant, due to deliver our baby girl in one week!! This is after three years of trying to conceive and having 10 miscarriages.  Then I used your Vitex herb and no problems or side effects.  We got pregnant spontaneously and have had a perfectly healthy pregnancy!  All of the many doctors and specialists I had seen over the course of the three years of miscarrying and infertility told me that my husband and I would never be able to have our own biological baby, and in fact, the only way we could is to use an egg donor and Invitro Fertilization!  So we researched the use of natural herbs and then we were fortunate to be referred to Pam Caldwell at Herb Lore for her expert advice and guidance and to purchase their wonderful organic herbal products. Another thing I would like to share is the fact that I am 41 years old. So I highly encourage and hope that all women who are having difficulty with fertility or having miscarriages to try the simple, safe and far less expensive method that I did to reach their goal of starting their precious families as we have done. J.S.

I just had to email and let you know I've been using your Vitex for the last 7 weeks and the length of my cycles have gone from 33 days to 27 days! I am amazed and excited! I use a fertility monitor which tracks the electrolytes in saliva and then with the help of a vaginal monitor calculates maximum fertility days. Before your Vitex, I was getting a reading for 2 maximum fertile days, 6 - 7 days apart, which doesn't sound quite normal. This last cycle, I had 2 maximum fertile days but they were on days 14 and 16 which is much closer than 7 days apart. I started taking the Pre-Conception Tea, so I bet by this next cycle it will be even better! I can't thank you enough for helping me with this! I feel I know my body better and am in more control of my fertility! In the next month or so, we plan to try to conceive! A.G.  (Note:  This client now has a brand new baby!)

I have good news! As you may remember, my very dear friend contacted you regarding my situation with TTC (trying to conceive) for one year without luck. I had gone to my doctor just before the one year mark and they recommended that I consider fertility treatments. I was very upset and my friend was there for me to listen and she suggested that we contact you. I had another disappointing month of not conceiving and that is when my Vitex arrived and helped change everything. I started taking 2 Vitex caps twice daily and the very next month I got a positive pregnancy test and missed period! Thank you so much for working with me and my friend! Her thoughtfulness and your expertise and product have really changed my life!  Forever appreciative,  S.S.O. 

Dear, Ms. Pam Caldwell,  I hope you remember me...this is Mr. M from Japan.  I'm so happy to tell you that my wife got pregnant!  The baby's been growing up very well. (please look at photos, I think you can see hands and legs?)  Since my wife began to take the Pre-Conception Tincture and Vitex pills, she looks more bright and healthy.  At the end of last month, we noticed we've got a baby!  I don't know how to tell how much we appreciate!  She wrote about your product on her blog.  Thank you very much again!

Thank you, and again I just want to tell you after 4 years of going to the doctor to get pregnant, I started drinking your Pre-Conception Tea for a couple of months and I finally got pregnant!  I strongly believe that your tea helped me balance my body to conceive better than all of that medicine I've injected myself with for that long 4 years.  I just want to share my child's picture. I have never met you (spoke to you on the phone though), but I truly believe that you helped me realize this little miracle!  Thanks! M.L.

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. 

I should first say, I would have never believed this if it didn't happen to me.  I'd never tried herbs before and although I wanted a second child desperately, I wasn't convinced it would work.  I called Herb Lore and got a lot of really helpful information.  Pam was so reassuring and confident when we had our consultation.  I hung up really feeling like everything she said (including the timing of my pregnancy) would really happen....and it did!!

It was so easy for me to get pregnant the first time, even at age 40!  And even the second time, which ended in a miscarriage. But after that, it wasn't easy. My husband and I consulted a fertility specialist who insisted on highly expensive and invasive procedures after all "time was of the essence" at age 42.  But I didn't want to do that, and so I was thrilled to have another option.  Herb Lore's Pre-Conception Tea and Vitex Tincture worked exactly as Pam said it would. I gave it the required time to get into my system and just as she said, I was pregnant in the summer. 

Pam was such a big help when I needed advice throughout the pregnancy. I had fears that this one wouldn't "stick", but it did, and we now have our healthy baby boy and I'm now 44!  We cannot thank Pam and Herb Lore enough for helping us to complete our family.  We wanted our daughter to have a brother or sister and with your help, that dream has become a reality!  We feel very fortunate and blessed!

I could go on and on about Herb Lore's great products and Pam's support.  She always sounds so cheerful, relaxed, calm and reassuring.  Words almost don't even describe how thankful we are!  We have two beautiful, healthy children! What a gift from God...we feel so blessed!  Pam and Herb Lore's products do amazing work, and I'm so glad we found you!

With our most sincere gratitude, L.& M.M.

Sensitivity alert - this is a story from a client who miscarried. 

Dear Pam,  We cannot thank you enough for the support that you gave us through one of the most difficult events in our lives. Today, we found out from our doctor that my uterus is clean, that the sac came out (thank G-d!!) and I no longer need a D&C. Woooohooooo!!!!  We were immensely grateful that someone who we have never met in person before gave us so much support - emotionally and professionally.

In the end, we took the Labor Tincture for an entire day. Nothing much happened that day. The next day we went to purchase a tree as a memorial to our lost baby and in the middle of the plant store, my contractions began. Somehow, my body knew that this purchase was the final goodbye and it started to let go. Thank you for the suggestion to hold a ceremony and allow our grieving, which was the final release.

We went home from the plant store and the contractions were intense. For 3-4 hours, I was having immense contractions and then suddenly, I birthed the sac. I felt it and right after the birthing, my entire being went into a phase of relief. I knew then that it was done and my heart was so grateful that 1) we were guided so beautifully by you, and 2) my body did what it knows to do (with the help of the herbs). 

Once the sac was birthed, I was filled with energy!  It happened to be the night of Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. It was 4 pm when everything came out and by 4:30 pm, I felt so good, I was helping my husband cook for the holiday. To start the new year with this newfound emptiness inside myself was miraculous and the greatest gift. We would have not known what to do without your advice and willingness to help us. You are truly an angel. 

We can never express our gratitude in words. In a time when I was ready to give up, you filled me with hope and the means by which to achieve that hope. Because of our email exchanges, we were able to ask the doctors smarter questions and challenge their own way of approaching this issue. We were able to hold onto the vision that our baby would have a natural departure and that my body would be saved in the process. A million thank yous for everything you did for us and our greatest appreciation for who you are in the world.

We hope to meet you someday and wish you every possible happiness in the world.

With gratitude, E. & M.D.N.

I just wanted to thank you for all of your products.  When my husband and I were trying to conceive, we bought Herb Lore's fertility tinctures and teas (Pre-Conception Tea and Tincture) and we got pregnant that very month.  Then once I had had the baby, I started the Nursing Tincture.  My milk was delayed due to having a c-section, and within a day of taking it, my daughter had gained weight!  (She had lost a pound from birth in a week.)  Then when our little one started having gas and Mylicon was making things worse, I took the Tummy Tincture so she would get it in my breastmilk.  Within a day, she was no longer getting the severe gas pains and she was burping better too.  I just want everyone to know that your products really work!  Thank you again!  K.L.

Pregnancy and Birth

I've used the Pregnancy Tea (and Pregnancy Tea Plus Tincture) for all 3 pregnancies. I've had 3 natural births... dilated quickly!  I attribute that in part to using the tea!  Thank you!! M.S.

Your Pregnant Mother's Liver Tonic is saving me from so much uncomfortable late pregnancy edema (swelling) in my feet, hands, and tailbone! I think it may even ease the acid stomach issues (affecting bile production?) a bit. Love it!  B.V.

After being in prodromal labor off and on for weeks while facing an upcoming induction, I decided to try the Labor Tincture. I was hoping to have a VBAC, and induction sounded daunting. Within 30 minutes of taking the tincture, my inconsistent contractions & prodromal labor kicked over to active labor - my contractions were so consistent and productive - and I had my ideal birth 6 hours later! The baby appeared perfect on the monitor the entire time & my contractions were stellar & consistent without any Pitocin! I highly recommend this product. Thank you Pam for making such incredible products & caring so much about your customers!  I am telling everyone I know!  L.O.

Hi Pam,  I’ve used several of your products throughout six of my pregnancies and postpartum. The Pregnancy Tea Tincture and the Pregnant Mother’s Liver Tonic have been such a blessing! One of your products that I ALWAYS have on hand is the Poke Root. During nursing, it is an amazingly fast acting herb to heal mastitis. At the teeniest sign of a clogged duct, I take just a tiny amount of the Poke Root and it clears up in no time! I recommend all nursing mommas have it on hand. Such an amazing product!!! J.F.

Hi Pam. I am a midwife and I use the Labor Tincture.  It SO ROCKS!!   I have a friend who has trouble sleeping..... she says her own thinking keeps her awake.... do you have an herbal sleep helper?  I told her I would ask you because I was SO HAPPY with the Labor Tincture that you make...  (Yes, we do!  Goodnight Combo Tincture and Goodnight Lite!)  Thank you for your herbal skills... S.S.,  LM, CPM

From a midwife in OH - I had a birth on Friday and wanted to share my experience with you.  It was a long birth and the mother had bit of a tough time.  As soon as the baby was born, she began to bleed and looked like she wasn't going to stop.  I used the Anti-Hemorrhage Tincture I recently got from you, and it did the trick!  I used two doses, very close together (5 minutes maybe) and it worked very well.  Mom and baby are doing great!  I feel the Pregnancy Tea Plus that she was taking in her last several weeks of pregnancy helped as well.  She lost a decent amount of blood at the birth, but was up in the shower less than an hour after birth and was able to take a 20 minute shower.  I feel certain that the tea helped support her blood levels.  She also found great relief with using your After Pain Relief Tincture too.  This being her second baby, she did have after pains this time around, but the After Pain Relief Tincture really took care of it!  Thanks so much!  R.M., Midwife

I am really pleased with the results of women taking Pregnancy Tea Plus. So far we have not had to transfer any primips (first-time moms) for anything among those taking it.  Without it, we were transferring 20%.  C.M., Midwife (homebirth)

 

I am a huge advocate for Herb Lore and their products. They are so easy to talk to, knowledgeable and they make sure my products get shipped right away. The herbs I used were instrumental in my postpartum recovery. I used the Postpartum Sitz Bath Herbs after all three deliveries - they helped my stitches feel more comfortable and heal faster.  I also love Herb Lore's Pregnancy Tea. I would make a large batch to last a couple of days and drink it all throughout the day. It was comforting to know the ingredients were helping the baby and also preparing my body to give birth.  M.G.

I got your Itch Relief Tincture about two months ago. This is my third pregnancy that I have gotten the PUPPPs rash with, and it was getting really bad. After using your Itch Relief Tincture for only two weeks, the rash was completely gone! Thank you so much for making such a wonderful product! I'm so happy to have complete relief and not have to muddle thru another pregnancy in misery!  K.R.

I came to Herb Lore regarding some concerns I had about my pregnancy. I was told about some specific products that Herb Lore offered that would be helpful to me. I wanted to thank you for all your help and support. You have proven to be an invaluable resource! I used Rescue Remedy in the last few weeks before my delivery and it helped me to relax. I was experiencing great anxiety, and after taking the Rescue Remedy, I not only felt positive changes in me but others were able to notice the difference in my health as well. T.S.

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.

I am really pleased with the results of women taking Pregnancy Tea Plus Tincture. So far we have not had to transfer any primips (first-time moms) for any reason among those taking it.  Without it, we were transferring 20%.  C.M., Midwife (homebirth)

Herb Lore's Iron Tonic Tincture is the BEST for correcting anemia!  Many folks complain that regular iron "does not agree with them", makes them nauseous, gives them heartburn or makes them constipated. When something makes you feel icky, you probably will not take it. Anemia is nothing to ignore, especially when you are pregnant. When comparing cost and effectiveness, Herb Lore's Iron Tonic Tincture is unsurpassed at bringing up at sluggish hemoglobin (at a fraction of the cost of any alternative, on the market iron supplements). We have seen a very quick rise in a woman's hemoglobin from one visit to the next. J.W., Midwife

I have been using Herb Lore's Labor Tincture for a couple of years in our hospital practice and have been very happy with it. It seems to not increase uterine irritability as some other preparations do, and around 70% of patients started labor after using the tincture.    Olga Libova, MS, CNM, RN

When I was pregnant with my 7 year old, I used Floradix and it worked, but I had to take it more times and for longer. When I was pregnant with my twins 3-1/2 years ago, I took the Iron Tonic Tincture instead, and I felt better faster. I gave it to my boy twin when he was 1, and to his older brother who at the time was 5.  Two years later, I'm ready to give it to my 7 yr old knowing how effective it was with him. It is the most efficient iron supplement I've ever used!  F. E.

I just wanted to say thanks!  This tincture has been a God-send, and my iron levels are better now (at 38.5 weeks pregnant) than they've EVER been!  (And I've tried other methods of getting iron into my system.)  Thank you!!  J.S.

 

Hi, You guys were SO helpful 5 years ago when I had Pupps with my first pregnancy. Your Itch Relief Tincture was the ONLY thing that helped. R.P.

Postpartum and Lactation

I just wanted to let you know that I received my Poke Root today.  I took my 2 drops at around 3:00 and I can't believe the difference it's made!  It's 10:45, and already my breast isn't as sore as it has been. I am able to raise my arm up over my head and I was able to nurse my baby with much less pain!  I can't believe how well this works!  Why doesn't every mother know about it?  L.M.

When I gave birth to twins nine weeks early, the nurse in the NICU told me that the best thing I could do for them was to pump breast milk. The babies were less than 4 lbs. each and my milk could give them antibodies and nutrients that modern medicine cannot duplicate or match. Unfortunately, I found pumping exclusively was hard for me. Another mother recommended the folks over at Herb Lore who set me up with their Nursing Tea (Moringa Blend). I made iced tea out of it and drank a 16oz. bottle every 3 hours when I pumped. My milk supply shot up dramatically by the second day. The babies got only my breastmilk and by their due date, they had both tripled their birth weight! The doctors had some medications that they could prescribe to increase my milk supply, but the herbs were completely natural and safe for the babies with no side effects for any of us. And they worked so well! These herbs were lifesavers for us, literally. And as an added bonus, the doctor said the Raspberry Leaf in the tea was very good for my uterus after the c-section. I recovered in record time! K.M.

I ordered some of the After Pain Relief Tincture and it was amazing! With it being my third birth, I noticed a lot less pain afterward when using the tincture than I did with my first two births.  M.S.

Your products are great! I do not stress about my milk supply now that I'm using the Nursing Tea (Moringa Blend). It is a huge relief, and my daughter's gas has improved. I will suggest your products to my friends! Thank You, A.

I LOVE YOUR NURSING TINCTURE (Moringa Blend)!  My baby is sleeping through the night again and I wake up FULL of milk.  I stay full for every feeding.  It is a wonderful difference.  And to think, I almost stopped nursing over a month ago!  Love the product! Thank you, Thank you!  I praise God for your company!  Keep up the great work!  K.J.

Hello, I am currently expecting my 11th baby. Ever since I had my 8th baby, I have lived in DREAD of afterpains. After my 9th, the after pains were so bad that I actually went into shock several times and passed out more than once -- this was not due to blood loss, just shock and intensity. This was with taking ibuprofen. Labor and birth were nothing by comparison. I often wished that I could just do labor and birth twice instead of doing the after pains. I was terrified with my 10th because I had learned that after pains do literally get worse after each one -- they don't ever max out. I ordered the large bottle of your After Pain Relief Tincture thinking that would be plenty and hoping desperately that it might help. I cannot tell you how amazing it was!  Every time an after pain started, I could feel the shaking and chalky whiteness of shock start, but as soon as I took the tincture, it made a huge difference.  It was completely manageable!  I started taking the tincture before nursing, and that was the BEST. I was horrified when I ran out after only the first day. I had another tincture from a different company that helped, but it did not hold a candle to yours. I ordered another bottle but didn't get it in time to help with the worst of it. So, with this baby, I am planning to order 3 or 4 of the 4oz bottles right up front. I really cannot tell you what a Godsend this tincture is. I am terrified at the thought of not having it!  I am a HUGE advocate of this product and I tell all of my homebirthing friends and mothers of large families about it.  Thank you!  M.B.S.

Oooohhhh Poke Root!!!!  I am in total love with your Poke Root!  After just two uses, the pain was gone and I don't feel it anymore.  How is it that only a few drops makes such a miracle? C.W.

 

 I was constantly getting breast infections and the doctors were prescribing antibiotics.  When I contacted Herb Lore and they recommended Poke Root. I haven't had one since!  Thank you! V.S.

I think what I'm most pleased with was the effectiveness of the Poke Root Tincture. It stopped a breast infection in under 24 hours! Absolutely amazing!  Best of all, I didn't have to use antibiotics like I had in the past when I developed mastitis while nursing my first son.  M.S.

I received my order for Nursing Tea Moringa Blend last week and just wanted to thank you and let you know I think it's great. My friend gave me a bag to try since I'm back at work and challenged to pump enough to keep up with my hungry baby daughter. The tea really helps! It took me a while to figure out how to drink it consistently and conveniently. I concluded making a batch ahead of time, refrigerating it and bringing it to work in a water bottle that I swig from throughout the day is the easiest.  If I don't or can't drink it, I notice my output goes down.  When I was running low on the tea and didn't have a chance to order more yet, I bought a box of (another company's) nursing tea and a box of (yet another company's) nursing teas to tied me over. Neither seemed to help at all. My production went way down. I had 2, maybe 3 cups of them a day, but I didn't think the difference in output would be that great. Anyway, I have Herb Lore's tea again now, and all is well!  C.K.

Thank you!!  I just put in an order for the Goat's Rue!  I have been getting desperate - I haven't had the results with the (other company) brand as I get with yours!!! CLV

I am a nursing mother to a baby who is not a strong nurser. She will not take a bottle with breast milk or formula, so it is imperative that I keep my milk supply up. I regularly drink Herb Lore's Nursing Tea Moringa Blend as well as take the Nursing Tincture Moringa Blend a couple of times a day. That has kept my milk supply up long after other mothers I know say their milk has dried up. My baby is 9 months old and still happily nursing several times a day. Without the herbs for nursing, I believe my milk would have dried up long ago since my baby does not nurse for long at each feeding.  S.E.

Oh Pam, you are remarkable, and that spills over into your incredibly-created, life-changing products!  I’m not exaggerating. With the help of Fenugreek, I was able to breastfeed my son till he was 10 months. I would’ve been able to keep going, but I found out I was pregnant again and my supply ceased. The other products I love are the Tummy Tincture, Healing Salve, and Itch Relief. These last three items my whole family has used and loved! The past year I bought the Healing Salve at least 6 times! This stuff is a must have for EVERY household. As the original detailed info stated ‘Typical results is that it will heal a diaper rash within hours overnight in severe cases’ Absolutely 100% true!!! I cannot rave enough about this product!  You can feel good that you’re putting something that’s healthy on your child and your other family members, their skin is not going to be absorbing anything unnatural or toxic. I’m going to buy this for my cousins that are having babies. Now, the Tummy Tincture was a must for my son and I while I was breastfeeding because we both became bloated while I was taking a larger quantity of the Fenugreek. This helped immensely!  Pam, you have done a phenomenal job at meticulously detailing every product and which products work in tandem with one another.  I forgot to mention that I also purchased and love the Garlic Ear Oil. It’s given my aching ears relieve many many times. Even when the doctor says she doesn’t see anything out of ordinary within my ears (even though I feel an ear ache coming on), I turn to this product for help. I only have to use it overnight to feel relief.  I think that’s everything about the products. Now about you Pam. I have reached out to you twice about problems. You graciously and extensively answered me in depth and with compassion. The entire Herb Lore community is so positive and loving because of you and your products. Thank you so much for making healthy organic natural remedies that really do work, and improve mine and my family and friends lives. I wish you many blessings.  Deep gratitude, TLC

I am using the Nursing Tea Moringa Blend and Nursing Tincture Moringa Blend.  I got them right after I caught a very bad stomach flu virus.  My milk supply had really decreased because I was so sick and dehydrated.  The tea and tincture have helped to get things back to normal.  I think without them, I might not have regained my regular supply.  I tried some other brand of nursing tea from the store before I purchased yours, and it did not help me at all and those other ones did not taste good either - your tea has a nice flavor and it works great!  Thank you!  J.M.

Hi Pam,  I'm so happy to have found your products, the Nursing Tincture (Moringa Blend) in particular works really well. I was afraid that going back to work would make my milk supply drop which is one of the main reasons I bought it. It's actually making me over-produce now and has allowed me to save up a really nice stash in my freezer for my son. I'm trying to decrease my supply now for my morning pump as I have a lot of milk (sometimes 30oz in one morning).  Do you have any suggestions on how I can safely reduce my supply without totally diminishing it?  Thank you, A.S.   (Yes, Sage Tea or Tincture helps to gently decrease milk supply, or simply cut back or stop using the Nursing Tincture Moringa Blend if your supply is adequate.  You may not have need of it any more!)  

I just wanted to write and give you a quick up-date.  You have given me several very helpful recommendations, but perhaps the best has been the Nursing Tea Moringa Blend.  My baby is now 4 months old and is thriving on my milk!!!  This tea has helped me to produce the best milk I have ever had (this is my 4th baby!).  Thanks so much!  D.M.

Hi Herb Lore!  On the 29th of April I gave birth to my little man - my 5th child!   My last birth was 8 years ago. My placenta took its time in coming out at that birth, and a little piece was left in there causing an infection, so I was a little scared of giving birth to the placenta this time round.  And of course the after pains!!  I was dreading the after pains being that this was baby number 5!  (Quite frankly, I find birth much easier than the after pains.)  So about 5 minutes after giving birth to my son, I took the Placenta Release Tincture. I also delayed cord clamping until placenta was born. I was taking the tincture every 5 mins. Once I took the 4th dropperful, my placenta was out!  Fully intact!!!  Happy Chappy I was! :)

Now for the After Pain Relief Tincture!! That’s stuff is BRILLIANT!!  As soon as I had a little niggle I took a dropperful. NO PAIN!!  And I mean NONE!!  The nurses kept coming in asking if I needed any pain relief, and were dumbfounded that the tincture was the only thing I was taking!!  I had every nurse in the maternity unit coming in to see the wonder juice “Herb Lore After Pain Relief Tincture! “.  So a massive thank you goes out to you and your wonderful tinctures! I would have been lost without them. xx  M.C. - one of our sweet UK clients.   (UK hospitals allow herbal tinctures, aromatherapy and homeopathy in their hospitals and healing clinics.  Isn't that awesome!) 

Hi, I just wanted to tell you that the Nursing Tincture Moringa Blend really works!  I was in a panicky situation last week when I had a minor tooth implant operation and after that, my milk supply was suddenly reduced to a trickle.  I called the lactation consultant, and she recommended Herb Lore's Nursing Tincture Moringa Blend.  I took it and the next day my milk supply came back!  I am so grateful!  I am glad that there are companies like yours who are dedicated and committed to helping pregnant and nursing mothers!  Thank you!  L.L.

I just wanted to thank you for all of your products.  When my husband and I were trying to conceive, we bought Herb Lore's fertility tinctures and teas (Pre-Conception Tea and Tincture) and we got pregnant that very month.  Then once I had had the baby, I started the Nursing Tincture (Moringa Blend).  My milk was delayed due to having a c-section, and within a day of taking it, my daughter had gained weight!  (She had lost a pound from birth in a week.)  Then when our little one started having gas and Mylicon was making things worse, I took the Tummy Tincture so she would get it in my breastmilk.  Within a day, she was no longer getting the severe gas pains and she was burping better too.  I just want everyone to know that your products really work!  Thank you again!  K.L.

I just wanted to let you know the Nursing Tincture (Moringa Blend) has worked great for me!  I told my doctor about it and he is now referring many of his patients to your website too!  I just want to thank you!  I love breastfeeding and feel so happy that I'm able to give my daughter the best!  A.Z. 

Hi Pam,  I’ve used several of your products throughout six of my pregnancies and postpartum. The Pregnancy Tea Tincture and the Pregnant Mother’s Liver Tonic have been such a blessing! One of your products that I ALWAYS have on hand is the Poke Root. During nursing, it is an amazingly fast acting herb to heal mastitis. At the teeniest sign of a clogged duct, I take just a tiny amount of the Poke Root and it clears up in no time! I recommend all nursing mommas have it on hand. Such an amazing product!!! J.F.

I know I keep saying this, but I'm still so very thankful for all of the help the herbs have been with breastfeeding!  Two weeks ago, I packed away my pump and bottles.  I don't need them anymore!  That has never EVER happened before with my other babies!  I'm just beyond thrilled!  So thank you again!  It almost makes me want to have another baby someday, knowing I can breastfeed with ease now!  B.K.

Your After Pain Relief tincture saved me after my third baby so I could tend to him. I’m not exaggerating.  Thank you for all you do!  A.C.

 

After giving birth to three petite little girls, my husband and I decided that for our next birth, we would go "natural" before and hopefully after the birth. Well, I gave birth to a very healthy baby boy, weighing 8 pounds! The birth was an easy feat without drugs, but afterwards was another story! I had always taken my Vicodin after the birth of my girls (I was not breastfeeding), but this time I was nursing and did not want to take a narcotic. My doula and midwife suggested I check out herbs available to me, and so I contacted Herb Lore. They took much time to suggest a wonderful remedy for me - Postpartum Sitz Bath Herbs. But instead of taking a sitz bath with them, I followed the instructions for making a "tea" of the herbs and using sanitary pads to soak up some of the brew. I then froze the pads and wore them throughout the day and night. (Complete instructions are on the product label.) It was a WONDERFUL relief. I took no narcotics and unlike medication, I could use the pads as much as needed. I wish I had known about this technique after I had my girls! Timmy was my biggest baby, most pleasant birth, and easiest recovery (thanks to Herb Lore's herbs!!!). J.Y.

I just need to tell you how brilliant the After Pain Relief Tincture was!  I barely felt the after contractions; what I did feel was short and bearable. Your herbs truly are a blessing to us!  I also used the Healing Salve down below on myself just to cool the perimeter since I wasn't able to use the Postpartum Sitz Bath herbs yet. By the next day, it had already made a difference, especially with the stinging.  Your herbs are awesome and I am so pleased that I am healing so well with your help.  Thank you thank you!  M.R. 

The first time I had mastitis (breast infection), I thought I just had the flu. I had a newborn and I was totally incapacitated and could not take care of him. Then a week later over lunch, I was discussing my "flu" with a girlfriend who said it sounded like mastitis, and that she had had it when she was nursing. I got mastitis again and called my OB/GYN. She prescribed antibiotics over the phone without even seeing me. The third time I got mastitis, I insisted the doctor see me. She gave me antibiotics again. But at least this time she told me about nursing consultants that I could visit. Then I paid a visit to a lactation consultant, who, although much more comforting than the doctor, and who was able to arm me with a lot of information, still had no "cure" for me other than hot compresses. However, she did give me a referral to Herb Lore. After my 5th bout of mastitis, I finally called Herb Lore, who got Poke Root to me in one day. I drank two drops of Poke Root diluted in a glass of water, and the mastitis went away. I've never had mastitis again. I also gave it to several of my mommy friends and it helped them too. I was at my wits end and Herb Lore saved me! Pam talks to you as long as necessary and she is very comforting. She helped me achieve a balance with my milk production so that I wouldn't risk getting mastitis again. It was a great success! Thank you so much!  C.H.

Your tinctures were so helpful to get my baby enough milk in the beginning years (Goats Rue, Fenugreek, and Blessed Thistle). Your kindness during our consultation when I had a newborn meant a lot to me during a challenging time, and now I have a healthy 3.5 yr old!  Thanks Pam!  J.H.

Babies and Children

When I was pregnant with my 7 year old, I used Floradix and it worked, but I had to take it more times and for longer. When I was pregnant with my twins 3-1/2 years ago, I took the Iron Tonic Tincture instead, and I felt better faster. I gave it to my boy twin when he was 1, and to his older brother who at the time was 5.  Two years later, I'm ready to give it to my 7 yr old knowing how effective it was with him. It is the most efficient iron supplement I've ever used!  F. E.

Oh Pam, you are remarkable, and that spills over into your incredibly-created, life-changing products!  I’m not exaggerating. With the help of Fenugreek, I was able to breastfeed my son till he was 10 months. I would’ve been able to keep going, but I found out I was pregnant again and my supply ceased. The other products I love are the Tummy TinctureHealing Salve, and Itch Relief. These last three items my whole family has used and loved! The past year I bought the Healing Salve at least 6 times! This stuff is a must have for EVERY household. As the original detailed info stated ‘Typical results is that it will heal a diaper rash within hours overnight in severe cases’ Absolutely 100% true!!! I cannot rave enough about this product!  You can feel good that you’re putting something that’s healthy on your child and your other family members, their skin is not going to be absorbing anything unnatural or toxic. I’m going to buy this for my cousins that are having babies. Now, the Tummy Tincture was a must for my son and I while I was breastfeeding because we both became bloated while I was taking a larger quantity of the Fenugreek. This helped immensely!  Pam, you have done a phenomenal job at meticulously detailing every product and which products work in tandem with one another.  I forgot to mention that I also purchased and love the Garlic Ear Oil. It’s given my aching ears relieve many many times. Even when the doctor says she doesn’t see anything out of ordinary within my ears (even though I feel an earache coming on), I turn to this product for help. I only have to use it overnight to feel relief.  I think that’s everything about the products. Now about you Pam. I have reached out to you twice about problems. You graciously and extensively answered me in depth and with compassion. The entire Herb Lore community is so positive and loving because of you and your products. Thank you so much for making healthy organic natural remedies that really do work, and improve mine and my family and friends lives. I wish you many blessings.  Deep gratitude, TLC

My little 2 years and nine months old daughter told me she likes your medicines. She takes them every day and even reminds my husband and me to give it to her!  Your herbs have been a great blessing to our family. Thank you so much! A.S.

I just wanted to thank you for all of your products.  When my husband and I were trying to conceive, we bought Herb Lore's fertility tinctures and teas (Pre-Conception Tea and Tincture) and we got pregnant that very month.  Then once I had had the baby, I started the Nursing Tincture.  My milk was delayed due to having a c-section, and within a day of taking it, my daughter had gained weight!  (She had lost a pound from birth in a week.)  Then when our little one started having gas and Mylicon was making things worse, I took the Tummy Tincture so she would get it in my breastmilk.  Within a day, she was no longer getting the severe gas pains and she was burping better too.  I just want everyone to know that your products really work!  Thank you again!  K.L.

Herb Lore's Tummy Tincture saved me!  Sam was born with food allergies that kept him up crying all night. The only thing that worked at all was your Tummy Tincture. We tried all kinds of other treatments including severely limiting my diet since I was breastfeeding to try to help my baby reduce his stomach upsets. Finally, I discovered your herbal Tummy Tincture and by my taking that, I was able to significantly reduce his problem. I now have a baby that is able to sleep at night!  K.N.

You have wonderful products - thank you!  This is my third baby with reflux and he responds well when I take the Tummy Tincture.  I really notice a difference when I forget to take it.  J.B.

 

Rescue Remedy - A remedy for every home with small children.  When my 2 year old recently got a cold with high fever and fever blisters in his mouth, I used the Rescue Remedy on him. He would have tantrum-like behavior due to the pain in his mouth and it was very hard to calm him down. The Rescue Remedy really, really, really helped. Always keep it at home, you never know when you need it!  K.J.

I just want to tell you the latest news about my 19 month old son’s iron levels. After only one month of giving him your non-alcohol Iron Tonic Tincture, his hemoglobin rose almost 2 points and his ferritin level rose 6 points!  His level was 4 and now it is 10!  Thank you so much for this wonderful product!  A.D. 

 

Dear Pam and Herb Lore staff, I just wanted to drop a line in appreciation of the quick shipping on my recent order. We are in the middle of molar mania over here and I'm a manic mommy!  My 1yr old daughter has been miserable with teething pain this past week and waking at night every 2-3 hours like a newborn. She took a dropperful of Teething Tincture -- she loved the naturally sweet taste and is now napping peacefully going on 2 hours!  Thank you!  Thank you for everything you do to support mothers and families. I trust that anything I buy from Herb Lore will be made thoughtfully and naturally. Sincerely, T.Z.

Another Herb Lore product I am impressed with is the Healing Salve. I have used it on my daughter's diaper rashes it works very fast. I would highly recommend it to all mothers. This product is a very useful tool that works very well. T.S. 

Herb Lore's Healing Salve is AMAZING on my baby's diaper rash - better than anything else I've tried. Thank you!!   P.P.

I just wanted to thank you. The Healing Salve has been the ONLY thing that seems to help my baby boy's eczema. It's really amazing!  C.H.

Healing Salve - This salve is remarkable and will heal ANYTHING!   I have folks use it on everything from bug bites to diaper rash to winter-cracked fingers.  I want to share with you my experience.  I grabbed a plastic spatula that was too close to the stove and it literally stuck to my little finger and burned it really badly.  I immediately put the hand and spatula under cold running water as the spatula was adhered to my hand.   I was in so much pain I cannot even describe it.  I cleaned the wound and saturated it with Healing Salve.  Within minutes, the pain dissipated.  I kept a dressing on it with the Healing Salve for several days.  I had second degree burns, no doubt, and they healed within about a week.  The scars are not noticeable.   It was remarkable.  Everyone should keep Herb Lore's Healing Salve in their medicine chest.  J.W.

Love, love, love your Healing Salve!! I buy it for all of my friends who are becoming first-time moms - it heals diaper rash like nothing else on the market! Thank you! R.B.

Immune Health

I am a nursing mother and I am very concerned about taking any medications for illness. I have used Echinacea very successfully to fight a sinus infection and a bad cold. The Echinacea had no ill effects on my baby or my milk supply. I feel that the herbs helped my body fight the infections better than an antibiotic prescription would have. The antibiotics attack both the good and bad organisms in my body creating the opportunity for thrush or yeast infection in either me or my baby, whereas the herbs help my body rid itself of only the bad organisms and to heal with no worry of any kind of secondary problem. S.E.

My kids haven't been sick or haven't had to be on any prescription drugs since taking your herbs.  My family is noticing and wondering why my kids are so much healthier than the other kids in the family!  I can't imagine our lives without Herb Lore's herbs!  L.R.

I teach kindergarten.  I took Herb Lore's Astragalus Tincture last winter, and it was the first time in four years that I did not come down with pneumonia.  Needless to say, I plan to take it this year again too!  C.M.  

I have chronic fatigue syndrome and am 73, post small cancer of breast and radiation. My niece recommended your products.  Since taking the Astralagus, there is a huge difference. Before taking it, I was feeling tired all the time - even waking up feeling tired -- and had to divide my day with rest periods, going to lie down between chores. Now I can get through the day with fewer rest periods and i feel normal again!  I realize you mostly deal with pre and post births, but Astralagus can apply to so many other issues.  Please do let the person who creates your tinctures know.  Amazing, and so thankful that my niece recommended you!  R.M.

Pam, I just wanted to let you know that you & your team are so amazing! You are a very intelligent and thoughtful woman. I just checked my email & read your recent newsletter. I bought the Astragalus, Echinacea, Quiet Cough, & Cold & Flu tinctures earlier this month, and at first, I was a little bummed that I didn't know about the monthly discount code beforehand. Honestly, it's great stuff, works amazing & is worth every penny at full price!  Especially after reading the information in the newsletter, you deserve the full price!  I hope your day & your year is as beautiful as your heart is Pam.  Love, M.C.

Oh Pam, you are remarkable, and that spills over into your incredibly-created, life-changing products!  I’m not exaggerating.

Sleep, Insomnia, Relaxation & Stress

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.

My Happy Day Tincture arrived yesterday, and I took two droppers full immediately after opening it. I noticed that my racing thoughts seemed more focused, I felt more calm and balanced, and got a lot done!  I have a cold right now so the fact that I was productive says a lot :)  I'll report back again but so far I love it!   HK

I have to say, the Happy Day Tincture feels like a balm to my insides. I don't know how it works, but I think we are all benefiting from it!  My daughter has been struggling so much with adolescent angst and the last couple of days she seems happier!  Me too!  E.G.

Hi Pam. I am a midwife and I use the Labor Tincture.  It SO ROCKS!!   I have a friend who has trouble sleeping..... she says her own thinking keeps her awake.... do you have an herbal sleep helper?  I told her I would ask you because I was SO HAPPY with the Labor Tincture that you make.  Thank you for your herbal skills!  (Yes, we do!  Goodnight Combo Tincture and Goodnight Lite!)  S.S.,  LM, CPM
