Is it safe to drink during breastfeeding?
I was recommended to take is for hemorrhoids but I have 1 month old baby.

16 Aug 2019
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.

How to use cypress plant if have inflamatory specialy in lungs
20 Aug 2019
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.

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.

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?
02 Apr 2020
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.

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.

Can I boil Cypress leaves to help lower the effects of stomach ulcer and ailments of high blood pressure?
04 Aug 2020
Dear Sally, Since you are Hypertensive few effective herbs couldn't be suggested to you for Stomach Ulcer. Try the following:
- Have 1 Banana daily with 1 glass of lukewarm milk. It is an effective method.
- 1 cup Lime juice daily before every meal.
- Carrot juice, 1-2 glasses daily by adding black salt.
For High Blood Pressure, take Giloy herb- Tinospora Cordifolia ( Homeopathic medicine ). Take 2-3 drops daily once in a day. It is effective in lowering Blood pressure levels. Keep a check of your blood pressure readings after taking the medication.
Also, you can take Arjuna tea or powder daily. It is good for heart health. Write back for further queries.
