I practiced surgical oncology in New York for 28 years. Many of my patients had breast problems. Among the most common and difficult benign breast problems I encountered were breast infections. I always considered myself a very traditional surgeon who frowned on any nontraditional remedies.
Then I met Mrs. Sara Chana Silverstein. Her approach to lactation and breast infections were totally foreign to my traditional way of thinking. But I soon discovered that everything she recommended was at least as effective as anything I had used. For about the last 10 years of my practice, I worked closely with her to achieve the best possible results for my patients with lactation issues or breast infections.
My appreciation of her went so far that I referred both my daughter and daughter in law to her when they experienced lactation issues. Although I can not explain the mechanism of action of her remedies, I can certainly vouch for their effectiveness.

I've had the pleasure of knowing Sara Chana Silverstein for more than 10 years. My newborn baby was already a month old and I was a total wreck. Breastfeeding was becoming more difficult with every feeding—clogged milk ducts, cracked and chapped and sore nipples and breasts. The pain—unbearable!
I sought the help of Sara Chana Silverstein, a lactation consultant with a reputation for being an effective and compassionate healer. I had learned about her in my prenatal classes.
That was my first introduction to the world of herbs, homeopathy, and the power of natural healing! I was fascinated by the "little white pills" and the dropperfuls of herbs and how quickly and dramatically they were able to help me heal and to be a more relaxed and loving mom for the precious baby I had brought into this world.
Sara Chana attended the birth of one of my daughters. She gave me words of encouragement and helped me every step of the way. When I thought it wasnâ€™t possible to go on, she said I could do it, and I did! She was absolutely phenomenal! Her patience, love, and care go beyond what words can express and I am so grateful to her. In return, I have the most beautiful, calm, and relaxed baby!
Over the past ten years I have used homeopathy and herbs on myself, my husband, and my four beautiful children. I cannot begin to count the number of times I have seen immediate or overnight result from using arnica for bruises, sprains, and strains—or how I have relied on my herbs for my sonâ€™s chronic ear infections.
It is so unbelievable and rewarding to be empowered to treat my own children naturally at any time. For a half-awake parent in the middle of the night being able to help a screaming baby and soothe her is an unbelievable power, and I thank Sara Chana for showing me that I can.

I first met Sara Chana Silverstein with my first child. (I currently have 4 children). I was having so much pain breastfeeding my child. It turned out that I had a yeast infection in my breast from taking antibiotics for years for chronic strep throat. Sara Chana and I worked for weeks trying to get me to nurse my baby pain-free.
Sara Chana at the time suggested homeopathic remedies and herbs to help balance my body. I took them and got better. She encouraged me to continue with herbs but as life goes I got busy and was absorbed with my baby and not myself.
Years later when my son began getting chronic strep throat like I had as a child, I panicked. I contacted Sara Chana. She taught me the herbs and remedies I needed for my son and myself to get off of the antibiotic roller coaster.
I now use herbs with all of my children. I use them both as preventive medicine and if my children get sick. I use them at the beginning of the school year when my kids are exposed to new germs, if we are traveling, or if I feel my children are coming down with something.
The power and control I've gained from the knowledge and the ability to treat my own children makes me feel strong and connected with my children.

I give a big round of applause to the greatest homeopath, Sara Chana. There are no words to describe how much she has helped me in my time of need. She always works alongside my doctors, and my doctors always approve of her advice. She helped my child who had asthma. His breathing was so difficult and I was scared, but the homeopathy worked wonders. Today he is asthma-free.
During one of my pregnancies, the doctor wanted to do a caesarean because of the size of the baby. Sara Chana told me what to do and I gave birth to a beautiful 9.9 pound baby. The doctor was shocked to see me give birth to such a big baby in such a healthy, natural way. In another pregnancy, my baby was breech three days before my due date. Sara Chana told me which exercises to do, which remedies to take, and what positions to be in, and my baby turned and I gave birth to him naturally.
This is just the tip of the iceberg of all the wonderful things Sara Chana has helped me accomplish.
