Hello! I have a weak kidney Qi by nature and have some major bags/ puffiness under my eyes my whole life , I also want to be an older mother and would like to try next year when I am 39. I need something that will help with both the bags under my eyes and allow me to have a healthy pregnancy and increase the chances of me being able to hold the baby. Please let me know any recommendations. Thank you!
Thank you for writing in! A few herbs to support healthy Qi are Astragalus, Reishi, Ashwagandha and He Shou Wu. He Shou Wu and Reishi may be the two best options to help with both revitalizing your energy, supporting your immune function and helping to replenish Qi.
One herb that helps to nourish women's sexual function is our Shatavari Transcendent Elixir. Moringa is another wonderful plant that is said to help breastfeeding mothers, and it is also full of nutrients, minerals and vitamins that make it an incredible food to incorporate.
