Mothering Message Board

Herbs:
Common cooking herbs which may encourage miscarriage: Basil, Caraway seeds, Celery seed, Ginger, fresh Horseradish, Savory, Marjoram, Nutmeg, Rosemary, Saffron, Sage, Parsley, Tarragon, Thyme, Watercress (avoid during first trimester; use sparingly thereafter.)
Ginger: As a morning sickness remedy can be used but be very sparing with it only tablespoon or 2 at a time and not at all if you are prone to bleeding when pg or have a history of miscarriage. ( I did use it some it did help a little but I was very careful not to use to much. And I used fresh ground that I did myself).

Preventing pre-eclampsia: Eat 6-80 grams of protein daily. There are roughly 25 grams of protein in three cups milk.

Eat Salt to taste: Limiting salt during pregnancy does little to prevent swollen ankles and fingers. Lack of adequate salt can cause pre-eclampsia.

Eat food high in calcium: A study of eclampsia rates world wide found that the highest rates were in countries with low calcium intake. One thousand grams of calcium daily during pg is a minimum recommendation.

Take in adequate calories.

Tone and nourish with Raspberry, Nettle, and Dandelion leaves throughout pg.

Remedies for pre-eclampsia: Increase level of potassium in your body, potato peels and bananas are exceptionally rich in potassium; Mint, Chicory, and Dandelion leaves also have extremely high levels of potassium.

Help balance sodium/potassium ratio: Drink Raw Beet Juice up to 4 ounces daily.
100mg of vitamin B6 daily in conjunction with high potency B complex supplement.

Augment protein and mineral levels: Add up to three tablespoons of powdered Spirulina or Chorella seaweed to your daily diet.

Dandelion leaves: Infusion or Three ounces of cooked dandelion greens.

Note: Before using any herb I recommend that you do you own research on them and if you can find a herbalist to help you decide what is right for you. The information above came from a book recommended to me by my Midwife. Wise Woman's Herbal For the Childbearing Year By Susun Weed. The information it is very precise and helpful.
