“Hi Vanessa!  I’ve been listening to your podcast ever since I found out I was pregnant.  I just want to thank you so much for all of the valuable information you’ve provided.  I can’t tell you how much your podcast has helped me throughout this journey.  Unfortunately, I’m sick right now with the flu.  I’ve been researching natural remedies that are safe to use while pregnant.  My husband who got me sick took Umcka and it helped him dramatically.  Umcka is made from a South African herb and is sold online & in many health stores.  I don’t know much about it.  I tried to find out if it might be safe to take while pregnant but couldn’t find much research.   I know if you do answer my question that I’ll probably be well by the time I hear back.  Being that it’s cold & flu season it might be a good topic.  Plus I read that you’re more likely to get sick while pregnant because your immune system is lowered.  So maybe this topic could help out some other listeners.  It’s no fun being sick, but ESPECIALLY when you’re pregnant.  Thanks for reading & take care.” –  Angie
