Re: Elmiron while pregnant...
Hi I found some more things to add in the book which includes squash seeds citrus fruits onion and to avoid, spices, chilies, coffee, soft drinks and I probably don't have to tell you wines or other forms of alcohol because it could harm the baby. Excess starch was also mentioned (probably like added cornstarch tapioca or kudzu root, lots of white flour or things found in boxes or bags that are highly refined).
Potatoes with peelings left on (in good shape with as few spots or bruises possible) should be ok with unsweetened soymilk.
zwieback can be made twice toasted whole wheat bread without additives or hydrogenated food, all leafy vegetables, carrots, okra, cauliflower, and eggplant are very good.
One book says, "it is felt best not to raise the body temperature of pregnant women"
A place on the net says not above 98 degrees for a shower. One site says no baths because it says it is "stagnant." I also believe it would contribute to the germ level in the lower areas of the body to take baths. If showers are used in the old days they used to say a railing and anti-slip things in the tub or floor of shower area. Nowdays may be different I need to check. In my opinion at least a natural type antiseptic may be useful with a scrub brush for making sure the shower area is kept clean.
Another book mentions causes from injuries, blows, falls or men with venereal diseases. Another cause is waste matter that is absorbed by putrefecation in the colon. The bowels might be kept normal if they tighten by a bit of low sugar prune juice if necessary a person might dilute it a bit to lessen it further in amount of sugar.
More later maybe...
