Dear Zdenka, Do not take Cypress during Breastfeed. It may cause side effects. Instead, do the following:
1. Take Fiber-rich supplements.
2. Drink plenty of water.
3. Take a Sitz bath. Try both warm and cold sitz bath. Soak the area in water for 15-20 minutes daily. Do it regularly ill you get better.
4. Apply an ice pack wrapped in a cloth for at least 10 minutes.
5. You can also try decoction of Witch Hazel herb. Gently wash the area with the decoction. Use natural ways to treat your Haemorrhoids rather than medication since you are breastfeeding. Hope you get fine soon. Eat healthy Zdenka.

Dear Jolan Libas, Cypress plant is effective in treating Lung problems. But it is not effective in curing inflammation.
Did you have a physical diagnosis for lung inflammation? For lung inflammation, take 30 ml shots of juice of Basil leaves. Add black pepper to taste. Take it once a day.

Dear Grace,

1. Yes, you can have the water used for boiling. The decoction is usually made to treat several ailments. Please specify why you want to take it, then we can prescribe you better with dosage.

2. Cypress is effective for Lupus. But we suggest you a few others as Borage. It is a super-effective cure for Lupus.

You can read more on Borage from the link below of the same website.

3. Regular intake is not recommended. Take it for 15 days once a day. Write back after 15 days.

Hey Malaika, You can have Baking soda for 21 days. Take a pinch in 1 glass of water anytime in the day. It is a detox for the body and will help you to cleanse the stomach. It will alkalize the stomach acid too.
Avoid eating junk and spicy food. It will also help.

2. Essential oils are also helpful in giving relief from Respiratory ailments. You can try Cypress, Peppermint, Clove, Chamomile.

For asthma treatment - Is the essential oil of the cypress tree the only effective way to treat asthma or can the leaves, cones,etc be used even if not as effective as the essential oil?

Dear Elirahm, Essential oil are considered to be more effective in such ailments since they reach more quickly to Respiratory organs through inhalation process. You can however, take the leaves, dry them and make a decoction, take 1 cup daily. It is however projected to be slower as it will first reach the blood stream and then forwarded. Take it in regular. But still effective. You can use inhalers, Humidifiers etc to use essential oils. Always dilute them with another oil before use. As 2 drops of Cypress Essential oil should be diluted with 4 drops of any carrier oil before use. Write back for further assistance.

Dear Elirahm
Yes you can make essential oils at home. Needles and twigs of young branches of the tree can be used. Check videos online and you can give it a try.
