Allergies? Breastfeeding and considering antihistamines?

Spring and summer are high-allergy times for many, breastfeeding moms included. The common approach is to take an anti-histimine to help alleviate the symptoms. You may not know, however, that these antihistimines can also decrease or dry up breastmilk!  These medications are made to dry up secretions and fluids - it will not differentiate between the different body fluids and will commonly decrease breastmilk production.  So keep this in mind if you're thinking of resorting to those anti-histimines!

A helpful and effective alternative is the herb Nettle (also known as Stinging Nettle).  Its fine for use while pregnant or breastfeeding, and is highly nutritious.  Many people swear by this herb to alleviate their allergy symptoms!   Homeopathy is also very effective in alleviating allergies!

Testimonial

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.
