Natural Cures for Jaundice

Jaundice is the most common of all liver disorders. It is a condition in which yellow discoloration of the skin and mucous membranes occurs due to an increase in the bile pigment, bilirubin, in the blood. If the bile is prevented from entering the intestines there is an increase in gases and other products.

 

1- Breastfeeding!! If you are having difficulty breastfeeding, see a lactation consultant. It can be hard, it is important to find support.

2- Sunlight, take baby out outside, naked, for a few minutes each day. Or let baby lie undressed in front of a sunlit window if the weather is cold. Sunlight breaks down bilirubin. Do this every day until the baby’s color is normal.

3- Sour Green Apples! For mom, blend in a high end blender (team vitamin) and drink, baby will get the detoxifying benefits through breast milk.

For infants, use a syringe to put a bit of the juice into babies mouth.
