Pam's tinctures, blog posts and Q&As have been such a Godsend as I've navigated the ups and downs of motherhood this year, and I am so deeply grateful for all that she does! I first discovered her products at Healthy Horizons in Burlingame when I was starting to get recurrent plugged ducts while trying to breastfeed my daughter, and my lactation consultant recommended Herb Lore's Poke Root tincture to me. It was hugely helpful in clearing up any plugs that I had going on, but unfortunately they started recurring more and more frequently and I eventually had to make the decision to wean my baby off and dry up the milk I was producing. I then switched to Herb Lore's Sage Tincture which helped me dry up safely, while continuing to nurse my baby as long as I could. After that I discovered her other non-alcohol based tinctures including Astragalus, Echinacea, Cold Comfort, Quiet Cough and also her Teething Tincture, and I love that I now have a natural, drug-free way to protect my family from all the germs and flu viruses around us especially during flu season. And of course with my baby's teething pains! Pam and her guidance, information and herbal tinctures have now become such a big part of my family's life and health that I don't know what I'd do without her. Thank you Pam! RJ
