TINCTURES: What's a dropperful? It doesn't fill up the whole glass tube!

People are commonly confused when they read tincture directions suggesting they take a "dropperful" or two of a tincture.  When they squeeze the bulb on the droppertop, they are surprised to see that it fills the glass tube only a little bit of the way.  They try to squeeze harder to try to fill it completely, but it never works.  This is why:

Reiki - what is it and how can it help me?

What is Reiki?

Reiki is an energetic healing art with its roots in ancient Japan.  The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word Rei (meaning Universal Life) and Ki (meaning energy).  Together Reiki literally means Universal Life Energy.

Labor Induction

I remember the last several weeks of my pregnancy. They seemed to take FOREVER!  I was carrying a 9-1/2 pound baby and was SO incredibly uncomfortable! Any fear of labor was gone - I just wanted this baby OUT. As hard as it is to wait though, it is so worth it.

Fertility & Hormones

This has always mystified me.  I've talked to A LOT of women who are working on fertility - trying to become pregnant - who have worked with fertility clinics.  Frequently, they say the doctors don't check for hormone imbalance!  This is a huge factor in whether a woman can become pregnant or not!  If there is hormone imbalance, perhaps she may not be ovulating, or her luteal phase (second half of the menstrual cycle, which comes after ovulation) isn't long enough.  These things can definitely hamper conception!

Testimonial

Pam's tinctures, blog posts and Q&As have been such a Godsend as I've navigated the ups and downs of motherhood this year, and I am so deeply grateful for all that she does! I first discovered her products at Healthy Horizons in Burlingame when I was starting to get recurrent plugged ducts while trying to breastfeed my daughter, and my lactation consultant recommended Herb Lore's Poke Root tincture to me. It was hugely helpful in clearing up any plugs that I had going on, but unfortunately they started recurring more and more frequently and I eventually had to make the decision to wean my baby off and dry up the milk I was producing. I then switched to Herb Lore's Sage Tincture which helped me dry up safely, while continuing to nurse my baby as long as I could. After that I discovered her other non-alcohol based tinctures including Astragalus, Echinacea, Cold & Flu, Quiet Cough and also her Teething Tincture, and I love that I now have a natural, drug-free way to protect my family from all the germs and flu viruses around us especially during flu season. And of course with my baby's teething pains! Pam and her guidance, information and herbal tinctures have now become such a big part of my family's life and health that I don't know what I'd do without her. Thank you Pam!  RJ
