Anxiety, Depression and Stress

There are various and very individual reasons for feelings of depression, stress, and anxiety.  Some are more "world-oriented", meaning that living in this day and age is just downright too fast, stressful and nerve-wracking, which can lead to anxiety, depression or feelings of hopelessness.  Other reasons can be more personal and individual in nature.  As someone who has benefited greatly from therapy, this is what I of course would recommend first and foremost, but there are also herbal allies that can effectively help support you and your nervous system.

Rescue Remedy List & Descriptions


The following Flower Essences are included in the Rescue Remedy combination.   The following is a list of each of their meanings and how they can be of help to you:

Pregnancy Tea & Pregnancy Tea Plus


Herb Lore's Pregnancy Tea and Pregnancy Tea Plus are healthful and refreshing herbal combinations that are supportive and toning to the entire system before, during and after pregnancy. The regular Pregnancy Tea may be used throughout the entire pregnancy, and because of its high vitamin and mineral content, achieves its best results when used on a long-term, daily basis. Pregnancy Tea Plus is similar to Pregnancy Tea, with the addition of Squaw Vine, a late-pregnancy tonic which further helps to strengthen and nourish the uterus, preparing it for the upcoming work of labor and birth. Because this herb has some very slight oxytocic properties to it (meaning it has the potential to start uterine contractions, although it's not likely), it's recommended for use during the last six weeks of pregnancy only. Native Americans used this herb successfully throughout their entire pregnancies (hence the name Squaw Vine) - even so, we at Herb Lore like to work very conservatively, therefore, we recommend the Pregnancy Tea Plus only during the last six weeks.  (The regular Pregnancy Tea may be taken throughout the entire pregnancy however.)

Flower Essences (and Rescue Remedy)


In the late 1920's, Dr. Edward Bach, a renowned British scientist and physician, observed that his patients' healing and well-being were directly influenced by their state of mind and emotional health. He noticed that the personality, attitude and present outlook of a patient had a great deal to do with their being cured or remaining sick. He understood that "the personality of the individual is of even more importance than the body in the treatment of disease". He realized that, instead of treating the patient as a body with an illness, the patient needed to be treated like an individual. "Treat the patient, not the disease."

Testimonial

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.
