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.
Herb Lore’s Anti-Hemorrhage Tincture is used to help staunch bleeding after a birth. It’s best used immediately after the birth, and as long as the bleeding or risk of bleeding continues.
This tincture is not for use during pregnancy, but is fine for birth.
The Anti-Hemorrhage Tincture contains organic Blue Cohosh Root, Yarrow, Motherwort and Alfalfa. The Blue Cohosh is an oxytocic herb, helping the uterus to contract and clamp down, while the Yarrow is a power stypic herb (stops bleeding). Motherwort is well-known for being a reliable hemorrhage preventor and uterine tonic, and the Alfalfa is very high in Vitamin K, the blood coagulating vitamin.
Suggestions for use:
Give 1-2 droppersful (squeezes) of the tincture immediately after the baby’s birth. Continue to give 1-2 droppersful every 5-15 minutes until bleeding stops.
