Recently my daughter delivered a male child.
She has been suffering from excessive lactation and Mastitis,an infection in the breast with soreness,a red patch and feeling of feverishness.
Modern Medicine could not offer her a solution despite various Diet recommendations.
Mastitis was treated with antibiotic and it was cured, not excessive lactation.
Home Therapy of applying Jasmine Flowers on the Breast and applying Cabbage Leaves(well cleaned) has brought immediate relief and she is okay now.
Jasmine has to be applied separately and so is Cabbage leaves.
I have checked medicine sites through Google on Excessive lactation.
Doctors agree to this method.
Some more Tips.
Use dried sage (Salvia officinalis) for reducing milk supply, take 1/4 teaspoon of sage 3x per day for 1-3 days.
You can mix the sage in vegetable juice (for example, V-8), but it won’t mix well into other juices.
You can also mix it into other foods. If you don’t like the taste of sage, try putting it into a tiny piece of sandwich and swallowing it whole – peanut butter or something else a bit sticky seems to work best for holding the sage in place.
Tear off the corner of the sandwich containing the sage (it should be a very small section) and swallow it without chewing (that’s why you need a very small section).
To use sage tea for decreasing milk supply, infuse 1 tablespoon of dried sage in 1 cup of boiling water (or 20g dried sage in 50 ml boiling water).
Steep for 5-15 minutes. Drink 1 cup, 2 – 6 times per day.
You can use a tincture of sage instead: 30-60 drops of tincture, 3-6 times a day.
These herbs are sometimes used by nursing mothers to treat oversupply, or when weaning.
Other herbs should be avoided while nursing due to their potential for harming mom and/or baby. Here are a few herbs that are generally considered to be contraindicated for nursing mothers. This is by no means a complete list.
