Is dry skin brushing safe while breast feeding (especially if I brush in circular around the lymph nodes)? Are ginger baths, or other detoxing, relaxing, salts baths safe? Are body wraps safe?

Answer by Dherbs

Public

Dry skin brushing is safe to do while breastfeeding.  It helps promote circulation in the body.  You can do any kind of natural bath soaks including the ginger or sea salt soaks.  Unfortunately you can’t cleanse while breastfeeding, but there are other ways to detox the body safely.  We suggest that you try the Electric Greens Combo and the Pre-Natal Laxative to naturally and safely detox your body while breast feeding.

    Q: My wife is having problems, breast feeding. Complaints of soreness, and pain. She alternates between soy, and the breast milk, to give breast time to heal. We are also considering the IUD, for birth control. I suggested to her the diaphragm, or herbs. She doesn't trust the two. Also, what books would you reccomend that deals with the metaphysics of the body?

    A:

    The soy milk is really not a good alternative milk. Please read the article on "Alternative Infant Formula Milk," as well as the article "Breast Problems." You'll find answers and remedies in these articles. Herbs are better than inserting some man-made device in the vagina, but it's her choice. Everything has a resonating energy, and the energy from the gadget will alter her vaginal energy.

    Q: My wife just get baby so she's busy with breast feeding. Some of the midwife suggested to use additional vitamin K. My question is should we used it or is there natural ways to give the infant vitamin K?

    A:

    When infants are breast fed, they receive all the nutrients from the milk of the mother and the foods that she is consuming.  The infant can naturally get more vitamin k by having the mother consume more foods that are rich in the vitamin.  Foods that have a high source of Vitamin K include dried basil, thyme or parsley, green leafy vegetables like kale, spinach, mustard greens, Brussels Sprouts, Asparagus, olive oil and dried fruits like prunes, blueberries and peaches.  The diet of a mother that is breastfeeding is very important to the health of the infant.  We suggest trying the Electric Greens combo as it helps provide plant-based nutrients that are beneficial to the health of the mother and the child.

    Q: I was looking at your recipes for infant milk. I am breast feeding but need to wean. I was interested in giving him rice milk (Rice Dream enriched with vitamin a, c, and other vitamins). However, the website says not for use as infant formula. Why would this not be a good substitute? What would this be lacking? Why is your recipe a complete formula for proper infant nutrition? Please Help a concerned new mom!

    A:

    Rice Dream is fortified with SYNTHETIC nutrients (vitamins and minerals) and therefore it's not a good source of organic nutrition. If you use Rice Dream, please fortify it with organic nutrition like Dherbs.com Moringa Seed Extract, and Iodine Phosphate Extract (add 5 dropperfuls of each formula to infant milk).

    Q: My mother is 85, bed ridden and is fed through a feeding tube; she has this skin disease Bullous Pemphigoid! Her vital signs are good. Is there anything through your broad knowledge and experience that you might suggest for her skin? She is beginning to itch more and more! We have tried all kinds of topical creams none seem to relief her!

    A:

    At this stage it would be difficult for her to consume capsules. Can she still swallow or take food via the mouth? If not, then it's little that can be done unless herbs will be put through the feeding tube. Now externally, she could try the Dherbs HEALING SKIN OIL.

    Q: Is Crystal Body deodorant spray safe to use? It's supposed to be all natural No Aluminum Chlorohydrate, Fragrance and Paraben free

    A:

    Did you read the "BEWARE OF DEODORANTS AND ANTIPERSPIRANTS" article? "Also beware of crystal stick deodorants. If the brand only contains mineral salts (i.e. 'Naturally Fresh' brand), you can take a chance. But just make sure "aluminum" is not an ingredient in any crystal deodorant you purchase. And because manufacturers are sneaky and tricky and only care about profits, make sure the crystal deodorant doesn't list "alum" as an ingredient. Alum is short for "aluminum", as in ALUM-inum (Alum + inum)."
