I am breastfeeding my 9monthold and have begun chiropractic care for my atlas. I'm looking for herbs/foods that encourage the healing of damaged nerves and are safe to take while BF. Is St. John's Wort okay? Will magnesium help? Should I learn more about inflammation?


It was a year of nerve pain and muscle weakness until I found this chiropractor. The atlas correction is holding well, but I have been told to avoid all lifting and exercise until the muscles in my neck are stronger and the nerves are healed. The doctor says it should take less than 90 days. Until then, I have my baby to feed and his two young siblings to care for. I'm doing my best to neglect the house and not worry about my fitness levels until my neck is healed, but I would like to do more to help the process. I am anxious to resume regular life, caring for my kids and home, regaining my ability to practice yoga, Pilates, and ballet. Thanks for your help.

Magnesiun is amazing at helping with nerve damage.   it fixed the nerve and muscle damage I had due to a flu shot.   Everyone I encourage to try magnesium reports good results.   Most Americans are magnesium deficient.
