Mastitis Remedy

by Nanci

January 2011

I am a mom of 6. I have had mastitis in the past, treated with antibiotics. When my 5th child was born, someone told me to put cold green cabbage leaves inside my bra. It works like a charm!

The cold leaves feel good and soothing.

No more antibiotics for mastitis ever again.

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.
