Mastitis

by Amanda W.

October 2006

I have had 3 cases of mastitis in the past and at the first sign that something wasn't right, I determined that I was not going to the doctor for antibiotics AGAIN! (I've probably had antibiotics 10 times.) So, here's what I did, and it worked!!!!

  • I took 1/2 teaspoon of the Immune Booster every hour for about 11 hours. The idea was to take it until I had no more symptoms.
  • I made some fresh garlic oil (3 cloves diced in 2 tablespoons of olive oil, let set, then strain) and massaged it into my breast.
  • Then, I got out a potato and slice it thin. Placed it in my bra at the spot... It's supposed to draw out the infection. Change the potato frequently.
  • Also, I took 2 cranberry capsules 3 times a day.

    And now I am better!! Hopefully I never have to use antibiotics again, just natural ones!

    Did You Know?

    After childbirth, a mama's body is gearing up for breastfeeding. It also begins a cleansing process as chemicals, hormones, and nutrients are all adjusting to proper levels as before the pregnancy. The liver, kidneys, colon, etc. are all very involved in this cleansing. Herbs that aid in this process are known as liver cleansers and as blood purifiers. Amazingly enough, many of the liver cleansers and blood purifiers also promote milk production. Some of these herbs are: Fennel, Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, and Dandelion. Most of us may not see the relation between breastfeeding and cleansing. However, God provided the herbs that aid the new mother to get both jobs done. The Mama's Milk Tea recipe was contributed by one of our readers, and includes herbs for after birth.
