Pregnancy And Strawberry Leaf Tea
Hard to say:
As it depends on the type of tea, herbal vs non-herbal, and within herbal, it depends on the "herbs" included. In general most commercial teas are felt to be safe as long as consumed in moderation. But you'd be best reviewing the types of tea that you are consuming or would like to. Another great resource is: http://americanpregnancy. Org/pregnancy-health/herbal-tea/

I'm currently 9 weeks prgnant. Is coffee/tea okay during pregnncy? & since I'm lactose intolerant, what can I take for my baby? Pls advise.
Decaf and lactofree: You can enjoy your teas and even some coffee, but I would realy stick to decaf as much as possible. As far as being lactose intolerant (and I know from personal experience), there are many lacotse free products out there now. You can buy lactose free milk (tastes exactly like regular milk), and can use that to make things like pudding, etc. Also, yogurt is a good addition for more dairy. ...Read more

So I drank arizona green teas with gensing and honey my whole pregnancey she's 11m old and im just now hearing that gensing can cause miscarriages?
Unknown effects: Many herbs have "associations" with birth defects or miscarriages, which means that people taking them had those problems. That doesn't necessarily mean that the herb caused them because some birth defects or miscarriages happen spontaneously. However, general pregnancy recommendations are to avoid anything that might harm your baby until checking with your doctor, including herbs. ...Read more
Hi doc am lactating mom for 3 months old baby boy, can I drink green tea. Tell me some exersice to do at home to loose my pregnency weight without gym?
No Better Choices:
Strawberry poppyseed dressing might not be a good choice during pregnancy. Poppyseeds can get lodged in the small crevices in the intestine and cause diverticulitis.
Being pregnant you might not want to risk a bowel problem. Do you have another dressing that you like?

No: Wart-removal acids sold over-the-counter can get rid of hand warts. One's primary care doctor or a dermatologist can freeze the warts. If a person has many warts on her hand, there are other medications that a dermatologist can try. Fruits are not going to get rid of warts... but sometimes warts do go away on their own. ...Read more

Hello, I want to ask that can we drink normal green teas like tetley, lipton or twinings and do pesticides enter from tea leaves to our cup?
If you are concerned about pesticides, as you should be,
drink only organic tea. Organic means grown naturally with no pesticides for insect control. Pesticides do enter produce.....we are surrounded by all sorts of chemicals in our environment. To the degree that we all had a certain amount of DDT (a banned pesticide)in our blood, including newborn babies. Go to http://wb. Md/1HRicBd ...Read more

Yes, but not much:
Green tea contains L-theanine so yes, any supplement with green tea leaves contain L-theanine, but you may not get much from a supplement with green tea leaves.

Likely fine: Usually leaves are not considered allergens (except for the sap sometimes causing contact skin allergy) but if you are highly allergic to alfalfa pollen, you may get some itching in the mouth or throat area if the leaves are contaminated with pollen. Even then the risk is low since the hot water in preparing the tea will likely destroy the allergens in the pollen. ...Read more
