All samples showed a sharp endothermic peak around 200 °C, which indicates the melting of ursodeoxycholic acid. Figure 2.

Naturopathic Considerations in the Treatment of Postpartum Depression Respectfully Submitted by Trang Q. Duong, N.D. The “postpartum blues” or “baby blues” is a transient state of tearfulness, anxiety, irritation, and restlessness associated with hormonal changes (a steep drop in estrogen and progesterone) that occur in the first few days after birth. Some 50-80% of women in Western cultur
