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.
