hi diya what about ur family dr? just be sure u tell the dr u r expecting. pls dont take any medicine without consulting a dr. in the meanwhile pls gargle, drink warm fluids like honey water & tulsi tea. tc Sheeba Vijesh #tagfwd

Sheeba Vijesh

gargle with salt water. make a kadha with tulsi leaves, dry ginger(or fresh if dry not available), pepper, garlic, turmeric,cumin seeds, ajwain, jaggery. boil and reduce to half. have thus throughout the day... my saviour during pregnancy... you can also make a mix of honey, ginger and pepper and savour this slowly....

hi asha chaudhry my family doc is in other state as I shifted to Mumbai..sure vl follow ur instructions dear.. thanks a lott..😘

Diya

hello Sheeba Vijesh..the ingredients which u have mentioned are okey to have in pregnancy coz I heard that not to have pepper..garlic..ajwain.. ginger..at this stage.. please don't mind as I'm not aware of such things..😊

Sheeba Vijesh

i had all of them, i have not heard any such thing... dont know, sometimes some regions there are beliefs. its not like you have to have pot loads... everything in moderation is fine... but if you are doubtful, please don't have... don't take me wrong, i believe we must always trust our instincts.... 😊

Diya

ok dear... thank u so much for ur valuable response..😊😊
