If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, are you able to take the “natural route” to address chronic skin rashes like eczema or psoriasis?
I actually get asked this A LOT.
Though I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to talk about this, I figured I’d share what the deal is for pregnancy, breastfeeding OR if you plan on getting pregnant at some point in the future!
This is crucial for you to know if you’re in this boat because pregnancy and breastfeeding significantly change the options available to you.
So let’s talk about this so that you can make an educated decision ahead of you on when is the best time to start digging into your case and working on your skin!In this episode:
- One big reason rashes can disappear during pregnancy
- Things to consider in taking the alternative/natural route for skin rashes during pregnancy and breastfeeding
- Why supplement options are so limited
- When is the best time to address chronic skin issues?
There is extremely limited safety data for many herbs used in pregnant women which really limits your options.
Some issues like H.pylori can be passed via breast milk and even bad fungal overgrowth in mom could also trigger the same issue in baby.
