A little story about Healing Salve. I went, week before last, to help a friend with a project (I had promised to help with) out of town. While I was doing it, I cut my right thumb, right across the pad. Not too bad (but worse than a paper cut) but since it is my dependent hand, it was VERY sore and totally inconvenient and pretty much useless. We got home late the next day and I could hardly grasp anything that required "the thumb". I honestly was getting concerned because it did not look that great. I cleaned it, applied Healing Salve and a band aid and went to bed. When I woke up the next morning, all soreness was gone and I should not have been amazed at the amount of healing that occurred, but I once again was truly flabbergasted. All I could say was, "Thank you Jesus and Pam Caldwell for making this wonderful stuff. It is truly FIRST AID in a jar. Thank you!!! J.W.
There are several herbs that work well to increase milk production. You may be wondering which one is best for you! Here is a brief summary - there is MUCH more information under Articles & Information and a more detailed and comprehensive one in the Premium Article section. Here is a brief summary though:
Nursing Tea Moringa Blend or Tincture - its the same combination of herbs, just two different ways of taking it. (What is a tincture, and how do you take it?) This is a good product to choose as a first course of action, as its very easy to use, and very easy on baby's young tummy. It will help increase milk production while helping to alleviate gas, colic, reflux or indigestion.
Goat's Rue - works to stimulate the mammary glands themselves, so it is a fantastic herb for women who have trouble with their milk supply right from the beginning.
Blessed Thistle - this digestive bitter is also a fantastic herb for increasing milk supply. We've had a few women who Fenugreek has not worked for, and Blessed Thistle has done a fantastic job for them!
Fenugreek - one of the strongest herbs to increase milk production. It must be used with consistency though, otherwise it can drop the supply if a dose is forgotten or the herb discontinued suddenly. Much more information on this herb and how to use it correctly, and how to wean down off of it once your supply is where you want it to be can be seen here. It works great and is one of the most popular herbs for increasing breastmilk production!
All of these herbs can be used together if needed and desired. Please take a little time to read more about these herbs and other ways that are helpful in increasing breastmilk production!
