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.

I live on a Greek island and there is such an abundance of herbs growing wild! However,I don't really know what they all do and how to best use them. Thanks for this fantastic site which I discovered through NGJ! I would like to give all mamas a healthy alternative to baby lotion.

Heat 2 cups of good quality olive oil with a handful of chamomile flowers (dried) and pour in a jar and allow to cool. Store in glass for future use. I use it on the children after their bath by massaging and they warm up in seconds! It also seems to help in healing cuts and abrasions.

Did you know that chamomile actually means apple of the ground in Greek (because of its apple-like smell)?

Thanks once again! ~Arlene


Did You Know?

Unusually offensive body odor is often the result of toxins built up in the body, making their way out through the skin. Whether it's your feet, armpits or fecal matter, all such foul smells usually have the same root cause: excess toxins. Tackling such issues with an external remedy is usually, at best, a temporary fix. The use of Bentonite clay internally can flush out a wide variety of odor-causing toxins. A young lady from Florida recently shared how wonderful it is to be free of the offensive odor that had plagued her for some time. She thought it would never go away, but not long after she started consuming Bentonite clay, the body odor disappeared.
