has anyone heard of using grapefruit seed extract (GSE) for the treatment or prevention of chronic breast infections? i found limited info about this online and thought that here would be the right place to ask.

i was wondering if it would be safe to take as a preventative measure mostly as i had mastitis about 20 times while nursing my daughter and i have already had it once with little henry and feel that familiar twinge in the breasts near the armpit again.

on a positive note: the midwife was here this morning (and i forgot to ask her, dang!) but she weighed the little booger and he is up just shy of 1 1/2 lbs since birth! gooooooo breasteses!
