Pregnancy Tea

by One of our readers

December 2005

My favorite tea to ensure a healthy pregnancy consists of equal parts of Red Raspberry, Alfalfa, Lemon Balm, and Plantain. I drank this daily when I was carrying my twins, who were born to term.

Since then, several women who previously could not conceive or carry a baby to term have tried this tea blend, and are now proud mothers (though that is not actual proof the herbs were responsible). It is primarily a nutritive formula; the Red Raspberry helps strengthen the uterus, the Lemon Balm eases stress, and the Plantain adds internal soothing.

Hello, I just wanted to take the time to thank you for the service you provide with your herb company. My husband now tells everyone the benefits of herbs. This strikes a lot of people as funny, because my husband is a big ole' country boy type who is a logger. Yes, I can remember the day he turned up his nose at them, but with God's help, he now looks at them differently. Thank you for the company. I share it with anyone who asks about herbs.

We also have found help for our deacon at church who suffers from chronic gout. I had read herbal teas could help with this, so he tried Peppermint tea. He has found some relief for his gout, and tells everyone about it. That's the reason I order so much peppermint. So, once again, I thank you for your service, and I pray that the Lord will continue to help you in this service. Thank you.

PS. The How to Herb Book and The ABC Herbal have been wonderful helps to me.

Did You Know?

Daily sprinkling a little Cayenne powder on the toothpaste on your toothbrush can work miracles in fighting and preventing gum disease. That's right! It will also help deal with other oral ailments that plague many folks these days. After reading about this, we just had to try it. There is a warm sensation in your mouth as you brush your teeth, but it soon disappears after rinsing. As always, whenever using Cayenne powder, you should start with very small amounts to allow the body some time to build up a tolerance. The first few times we used it, we sprinkled so little of the powder on the toothpaste that we didn't feel anything. As the days progressed, we increased the amounts slightly until we felt it was warm enough. After using it for a little while, the nice feeling in your mouth is very satisfying. Be warned, however, that you do not want to overdo this one, so start small.
