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 just have to let you know how much I appreciate your business...

When it comes to health and healing I would say that I was from a “typical American” family. Hamburger helper and Rice-A-Roni every night, vaccines when they’re due and hospitals when you’re sick! But I thought that herbs sounded like a neat thing to study (not to mention the fact that we were uninsured! It sounded like a real money saver too!) so I went to the local library to get a few books.

Reading about herbs eventually led me into natural health and healing, food toxins and additives, whole and traditional foods, and lastly to women’s health and birthing. I have developed a true passion for natural health/healing and natural birthing (and I love reading now too!) ...It all started just browsing your website one day. I just wanted to let you know how you have touched my life. So thank you! And keep up all the good work! ~Megan


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.
