And what about the fine folk remedy badger fat? And then there are their aspects of application for women in an interesting situation. Let's talk about this in more detail.
Old badger fat was considered a valuable curative product in Russia due to the biologically active substances in it. In official medicine, it has been used for more than 200 years as a highly effective drug that is 100% digested in blood and enhances protein metabolism, increases immunity, has bactericidal action, normalizes the activity of the stomach, increases the overall tone.
Badger fat is almost a panacea in the treatment of tuberculosis and bronchitis. And its wound-healing remedies help to cope with the most severe skin lesions, not to mention wounds, abscesses on the body. This is the basis for the use of badger fat in cosmetology.
Is it possible?
As for pregnant women, traditional medicine allows it to be used.
Official medicine believes that the action of badger fat on the body of a pregnant woman has not been studied enough, therefore to apply it to women in the position does not advise. But in some cases, doctors still appoint him pregnant.
During pregnancy, women are weakened by immunity, which often provokes the appearance of different infections. Quite often, pregnant women develop thrush (candidiasis of the genital organs and vagina), and old chronic infections that threaten the life of the fetus become aggravated. They are treated, trying to strengthen immunity at the same time.
Badger fat has a whole complex of anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. Traditional medicine has experience in its use in pregnant women, but there is no reliable and systematic data on its effectiveness.
Some manufacturers of dietary supplements write on packages that during pregnancy badger fat is not advisable. But there are also those where individual schemes describe its use for pregnant women. It is unlikely that this is true, because dietary supplements should be used only on the instructions of a doctor. This especially applies to the first trimester of pregnancy, when there is a bookmark of the fetal organs. And during pregnancy the body of a woman works with an increased load, and the use of badger fat can upset digestion.
External use of badger fat
If a woman does not have an allergic reaction, outdoor use of badger fat during pregnancy is permitted.
Often a woman's skin can look much worse than before pregnancy. It becomes dry or vice versa oily, covered with acne. Sometimes hair falls out, cracks appear on the arms and legs. Especially prone to this are the heels. Cracks on them even limit the mobility of the pregnant woman. In such cases, external application of badger fat can significantly improve the condition of the skin and hair.
So, to restore the condition of the skin and hair, you can prepare a special cream. 50 ml of badger fat, melt and add to it 50 ml of cocoa butter, 1 tablespoon of wheat germ oil. The mixture is cooled, then add 8-10 drops of essential oil of geranium, 5 drops of essential oil of rosewood. Apply the cream at night, on cleansed face and neck.
Mask for dry skin is prepared as follows: 2 tablespoons badger fat, melt, add 2 tablespoons of fish oil. Stir well and apply on face and neck for 15-20 minutes. Then rinse with warm water without soap.
Mask against hair loss: 1 tablespoon badger fat and a teaspoon of honey melt, add 1 teaspoon of burdock oil and juice onions. You can add 8-10 drops of essential oil of cloves or mint. Apply this mask to the roots of hair and leave for two hours. After that, wash your hair with shampoo. Apply this mask twice a week.
Sometimes, on the appointment of a doctor, badger fat is taken in and out. Do this with caution. After all, even if before pregnancy you have perfectly tolerated it, now the reaction of the organism can be quite different.
