My aunt had a baby nearly a month ago. She, like the rest of my mother’s side of the family, believes in a firm, natural diet. She also believes that Western Medicine is not always the right answer. After witnessing some amazing effects that natural medicine has on the human body, I must say I am obliged to agree with her. When it came to her pregnancy she, being a smart mother, accepted the treatment of Western Medicine. Now that the baby is a month old, she has been asking her doctor about natural ways to produce more breast milk, as hers is rather short in supply.
Her doctor recommended a remedy he once heard before med-school that he had given to several patients prior to my aunt’s visit. Each of these patients had seen incredible results in his suggestion of fennel seeds. This article will be in regard to how fennel seeds actually help produce more breast milk and the exact method to use them, all of which were provided from a doctor.
Breast milk, according to my aunt’s doctor, holds key nutritious minerals for a baby. Some of these minerals allow for the baby to have increased brain activity, allowing them to more quickly learn what is going on in the world around them. The breast milk, also according to my aunt’s doctor, helps an infant’s immune system before he or she can develop his or her own. So, therefore, it is logical to see the heavy importance that a mother’s breast milk can give to a child. With that in mind, it is perfectly easy to understand why my aunt needed to produce more breast milk for her newly born child. But it raises the question of how to use the fennel seeds appropriately to produce more breast milk. Besides these fennel seeds, you can try gynecomastia exercises that are proven to be equally effective when it comes to the health of the mother. These exercises can also be followed by men in order to get rid of their man boobs and get their body in shape.
In order to buy fennel seeds, you can check your local grocery store but most likely they will not carry them because they are a rather odd request. I recommend going to a nursery or store that sells plant seeds. Usually, fennel seeds are not too expensive but if money is an issue and time is not, then I recommend growing your own fennel and harvesting the seeds yourself. This will take a lot of time and effort. The decision is up to you.
Once you have the fennel seeds, you should grind them very finely. To do this, I recommend using a rolling pin. My aunt found this to be very effective when she tried it. Her doctor informed her that 5 fennel seeds should be ground up per every ¼ cup of water. Place your adequate number of seeds in water and then place it on a burner until it comes to a boil. Once it begins to boil, pull the water off the burner and allow it to simmer. Once it has cooled down, drink the water, taking in all the seeds. After you drink the water with seeds mixed in it, eat five more seeds by themselves. Her doctor recommended that she do this several times a day, usually after she breastfeeds.
My aunt did this for a few weeks and was able to see a considerable difference. She was informing me just the other day that her breast milk has nearly doubled in quantity. She swears by this method and says that she will continue to use it until she no longer breastfeeds. This is perhaps one of the safest and most natural ways of increasing your breast milk but please consult your physician before doing this to make sure it is safe for you.
