“It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
According to Dr. L. Wilson, babies and children on a Nutritional Balancing Program rarely, if ever, get sick. The babies who do get sick on the program, is due to some foods that is fed to them too early to start with. This makes sense to me because as a baby, who was often sick, my diet consisted mostly of grains, carbs and veggies. Very little good fat, if any in my diet. I was fed solids, by advise from the doctor, starting at the age of less than 6-months old. This practice, by the way, has not changed.
In the fifties, new born babies were given baby formula at the hospital and mothers were discouraged to ever breast feed. Doctors would advise against it. In fact, breastfeeding in the Western world declined significantly from the late 1800s to the 1960s. By the 1950s, the predominant attitude to breastfeeding was that is was something practiced by the uneducated and those of lower classes. The practice was considered old-fashioned and "a little disgusting" for those who could not afford infant formula and discouraged by medical practitioners and media of the time. Letters and editorials to Chatelaine from 1945 to as late as 1995 regarding breastfeeding were predominately negative.
This basically means that our mothers, grand-mothers and great grand-mothers, were not breastfed. The establishment persuaded women then that processed baby-formula was better than mothers' milk and that any mother going against the grain would be regarded as ignorant and downright stupid.
However, the first years of a child's life is what sets him or her up for the rest of their lives. Just like when building a house, for example. A good engineer always builds a structure with integrity - that is to say, the building is built in a way in which it can support the structure without failure. Our body is comparable. A baby needs the best nourishment found in the mother's milk and he or she needs the proper emotional bond that occurs during the growing process, in order to have proper secure attachment throughout their lives. Without these components, children are bound to get sick often wherein their immune system is compromised.
According to Dr. Wilson, he claims most all children today are born with significant levels of at least a dozen toxic metals in their bodies. They are also ALL nutritional deficient...even if the mother and father do their best to eat healthfully. This gives rise to a myriad of health problems in babies and children today, from simple rashes and infections to birth defects, premature deliveries, delayed development, autism, cancers, behavior disorders, and much much more. We sometimes refer to today’s babies and children as burnout babies. This sounds very negative, but it is actually very accurate.
I am a direct product of a baby that was not fed properly, as my parents, grand-parents and great grandparents were not either - it's a generational problem. In my opinion, the only way to stop this, is for everyone, including men, to start becoming more responsible and accountable for their own health and health of their families. Relying on the establishment, who often give ill advise to their patients regarding our health and the health of children, is not always good practice and it can often lead to mistakes that cannot be rectified.
Thus try to not only look for answers from MD's but do your own research. Begin to eat better foods and less foods that causes health issues. Take time also for yourself so you can begin to develop a better intuition and better relationship with your higher power, who has your best interest at heart. This is not to say that doctors are not useful because they are. They are not however educated on nutrition and are not in favor of natural healing for many reasons, one of which is commerce. It all boils down at taking responsibility for your health and the health of your family.
