#15 - snvravikumar - 11/28/2010 - 08:46
vitamin D deficient maybe... Supplements or lots of sun exposure, not too long, don't burn (do NOT use sun screen! its bad >-( (research))
Or not deficient but still:
Low levels of neonatal jaundice will often go away on their own. Higher levels must be treated right away. Both breastfeeding and Vitamin D (which is created by exposure to sunlight) help speed up the breakdown of bilirubin.:-D

Try drinking black Rooibos tea and eating as many raisins as you possibly can - this will clean your bloodstream and the rooibos tea has an ancient herbal cure in it... not sure - but IT WORKS! Rooibos tea available in South Africa.

Jaundice is a medical condition in which the liver gets overtaxed and cannot perform its job of removing toxins from the blood stream by passing it through liver to kidney for disposing. Natural jaundice treatment stops the toxins and chemicals from entering the liver as it changes the outer membrane of the liver cells. visit
