Hello Everyone. My name is Maria and I was wondering if anyone could verify this information for me. I found this on a website of which I am researching due to the fact that I seem to be having this condition. It is very painful. I am 5 months pregnant and wish to be able to heal this condition while at the same time making sure I take the right amount of the herbs. I would love any help or direction anyone could give me. You could also call me. 707-694-3527
I am pregnant with my first child. I originally injured my pubic symphysis with the birth of my first child. It felt like my bones were splitting apart and I was sore for about 6 months afterwards. With my second pregnancy 4 years later, I was running to catch a bus at 34 weeks and really tore the same spot. I could not move for two weeks at which time the pain was manageable. I was able to give birth vaginally at home in a birth pool. With this pregnancy I was afraid because of my previous experiences and was being extra careful in a precautionary sort of way. By 18 weeks I was in terrible pain, could not walk or stand for more than 20 minutes at a time, had awful pain turning in bed, could not stand on one leg, had difficulty lifting my leg to get in the shower, etc.
The great herbalist Susan Weed recommended (about 3 weeks ago) Teasel tincture, which is for "internal tears that are hard to get at," and comfrey infusion (the other name for Comfrey is Knit Bone). Within 3 days of taking the Teasel (15 drops 3x a day) I started seeing improvement. Now I am 31 weeks and feeling almost no pain at all and can move more quickly and efficiently than I could at 18 weeks when the baby was so much smaller. I am amazed and thrilled that these remedies are working so incredibly well and thought that other women should know about them.
