Addendum: According to the current Harper’s index, we are 77th in the world in maternal mortality (34th in infant mortality, right behind Cuba). The wonders of our medical system!
Celia: Lots of good information on healing the gut here: Dr. Mercola, GreenMedInfo, Chris Kresser, and Marks Daily Apple. Kelly Brogan, MD is very good, too, regarding women’s health. What we put into our mouths alters and shapes our gut microbiome, the health of which is crucial for gut health and the health of the whole organism. Everybody is different, so you have to self-experiment.
By the way: The insurance industry is not interested in saving money. Their business model, like that of the rest of the medical industry, is to keep everyone as sick as possible, so they remain customers, and they are succeeding. I agree that every infant deserves to be handed to the mother as soon as possible and breast fed for an extended period, two years or more. The ACA has made everything worse, and Congress is utterly incapable of doing anything about it, or anything else, for that matter. Read “The Smear” to understand that things are worse than we thought, and won’t be changed any time soon unless the public revolts and throws all the bastard out of office. The public space is little more than a sea of propaganda.
Rather than wholesome breast milk, this is what American infants receive on the day of birth, injected into muscle tissue (in addition to the antigen):
Hep B (Engerix-B): aluminum hydroxide, yeast protein, sodium chloride, disodium phosphate dihydrate, sodium dihydrogen phosphate dihydrate. OR:
Hep B (Recombivax): soy peptone, dextrose, amino acids, mineral salts, phosphate buffer, formaldehyde, potassium aluminum sulfate, amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate, yeast protein.
Some of these ingredients are benign, but the nano particles of aluminum salts to which the antigen is adsorbed are highly neurotoxic. Not according to me, according to auto-immunologists and toxicologists. Sources for this assertion: PubMed, The Vaccine Papers, and a 2015 medical textbook, “Vaccines and Autoimmunity.” The ACA rewards hospitals for poisoning infants with this stuff at a high rate. Obama was as bad as Dubya, Clinton, and all the rest, going back at least to JFK.
What we are doing to children in this country (and thanks to Bill Gates and WHO, in the world) is a crime against humanity, a crime for the ages.
Not every mother can breast feed. Mothers on medications, especially blood thinners for example, cannot breast feed. It’s true those not breast fed are missing out on the Foundation of their Immune System. That first feeding of Colostrum is so important that babies who missed out are prone ti getting colds more easily. Can taking a Colostrum supplement help make up the deficiency?
