Thank you MentalNomad for your post. I really needed to have the same information. I was taking Intestinal Formula 1 for about 2 1/2 weeks while unbeknownst to me, I was already pregnant. I had started the Intestinal Formula and was already a week pregnant. By the time I suspected I was pregnant, I was already up to about 7-8 tablets a day. I became concerned because I really hadn't studied the repercussions or ingredients against those herbs not recommended for pregnant women. I panicked and stop taking it all together. I saw my doctor shortly after that and informed her of my taking the formula. She seem to feel that as long as any of the herbs were not harmful to pregnant women that I would be ok. I started taking pre-natal vitamins prescribed by my doctor but really didn't feel that great about taking those either. I knew that many of the pre-natal vitamins are not that great for our systems either. Has anyone else used alternatives that were safe?
This whole time, I did not have any clue until reading these posts about what herbs may or may not be safe. Is there another post or area where I can find out the herbs that are unsafe during pregnancy? Your information has been most helpful. Thanks.
