Fenugreek for congestion

Fenugreek is amazing - it helps a mother's milk supply - but it is wonderful and has been used for thousands of years for congestion and digestive ailments.  I only first heard about it 2 years ago, sigh - why do all these wonderful remedies are just not known among people anymore.  It drives me nuts.

My own personal experience with Fenugreek - at the first sign of congestion/sinus issues, take 3 fenugreek pills 3 or 4 times daily for 2 or 3 days, clears up all colds quickly. 
Aidan has never been sick in his life, but he was congested for 2 days in his 14th month - I took a lot of fenugreek so it will go through the breastmilk, and I also put a little bit out of a capsule into applesauce.  He was only congested for 2 days.  I have also heard that Fenugreek sprouts are delicious, so this would also be a good way to get fenugreek in both the baby and in you!

Some great very interesting websites:
