UNSAFE HERBS FOR PREGNANT WOMEN Part 2
In my last blog I listed herbs that would cause birth defects and toxic problems for women that are pregnant. In this blog I am going to discuss herbs that cause internal bleeding and uterine contractions and herbs that can cause miscarriage.
Let me mention at the onset that we all have our own views about subjects such as abortion. I also have mine. None of the information here is meant by me to abort a child. I am bringing to people's attention the dangerous herbs. Children are precious and we should not want to risk harming them in any way.
Herbs that will cause uterine bleeding and contractions and/or miscarriage: These should not be taken during the entire 9 months. I am mixing in those herbs that are unsafe after or before a certain time period. If the are not safe after 3 months, to my way of thinking, they are not safe during any period of the pregnancy.
AGAVE can cause uterine bleeding and miscarriage.
ALOE VERA JUICE. Uterine contractions and diarrhea. (avoid during breastfeeding as well)
