Methi Lab


Last night I finally tried fenugreek -- or, as the Indians call it, methi. I had bought some frozen at an Indian store and heated it in the microwave and served it with olive oil and a little lemon juice. It tasted pretty good -- a bitter green, not unlike mustard greens or watercress. 

And, as promised, it does promote lactation. About six hours after nursing Snookums, I was able to pump a full bottle of breast milk.

good for you Joan for finding an herbal "cure" to something medicine doesnt discuss. i remember seeing a lactation specialist, who suggested warm baths to increase lactation...
