Itching During Pregnancy (PUPPS)

We frequently get clients who are pregnant and are experiencing itchiness.  This is more than just your average itchiness from stretching or dry skin – it can be extreme and really awful to experience.  It’s called PUPPS or cholestasis.  Along with the terrible itching, symptoms can also include brown/dark yellow urine (like beer), light-colored stool, bloodwork showing high liver enzymes, and high bile acid.  We have had tremendous success with our clients using liver herbs. (I have created a product specifically for this called

Itch Relief Tincture.)

Relief doesn’t come immediately, but after a few days of use, clients have reported that it gets better and better each day.  Much better.  I had a client in Texas, pregnant with twins, who had one of the most extreme cases I’d ever come across.  They were threatening to induce her twins early as they were very worried about their well-being as well as the well-being of the mother.  She started on the Itch Relief Tincture, and she began to respond very quickly.  She improved so much that they cancelled the induction and she went on to carry her babies nearly to term (labor started on its own, in its own perfect time) and she had the beautiful Birth Center birth that she wanted!  Mom and both babies were all completely healthy and fine!

Now that makes my day!

Testimonial

I just wanted to thank you for the WONDERFUL soothing Postpartum Sitz Bath Herbs!  I had surgery (enterocele/rectocele repair) a week ago.  Not only that, I ended up with a bladder infection due to the Foley catheter.  I came home sore, tearful, and incontinent.  Then came the yeast infection.  I ended up with 11 prescriptions.  Then I bought the Postpartum Sitz Bath Herbs and I've already made my third batch.  Aaaahhhhh!  I'm taking sitz baths and using a peri bottle to squirt the herbs onto the sore area.  I'm still tender, however I am SO much more comfortable!  I wish I had the herbs a week earlier!  I'm going to let my surgeon know!  Every woman having vaginal surgery should know that these herbs aren't just for postpartum!  Thanks again!  E.N.
