Mothers LoveThe harmony between mother and baby is very important, particularly during the pregnancy. Apart from all the usual considerations, sensible diet, plenty of fresh air, rest and avoiding unhelpful products such as tobacco and alcohol it is also clearly important to have as peaceful environment as possible and have both parents to be in a calm and relaxed state. The way we live now makes it harder to achieve this but there are always ways to achieve a more relaxed body and frame of mind, your baby will thank you for that. Following on from this, the more natural the birthing process, the better for both mother and child.
My daughter produced a fine healthy baby girl just over 4 years ago, at home in a birthing pool, following the hypnobirthing method. She says “It was a totally harmonious experience, particularly as it was pain free without any medical intervention”. Hypnobirthing is a wonderful way to go through the birthing process and there is plenty of information available on the internet to find a practitioner and gain more information. Another important factor concerning harmony in the newly born is to avoid cutting the umbilical cord before it has stopped pulsating, as vital elements are being transferred to the baby from the mother, this factor tends to be overlooked in a busy hospital environment where time is always of the essence. Ideally, the gestation and birthing of a child should be as much as possible as nature intended, not to deadlines dictated by bank holidays or busy periods and lack of bed space in hospitals. Inducing birth because a baby has not come at the time dictated by the time charts of the hospital can be distressing for the mother and child, sometimes it is preferable for the baby to come when he or she wants to, as nature intends.

My next blog will carry on with the theme of harmony, I am feeling the need for harmony in 2013! I will focus next time on harmony in the circulatory system.

medical-dogmaIn any walk of life it is a good idea to be able to keep more than one idea in your head at the same time and when it comes to healthcare, it is essential. As a case in point, one idea that seems to be fixed in the minds of the medical profession is in relation to the rise in Pertussis (whooping cough).
Despite the fact that there is a high uptake of the Pertussis vaccine, the incidence of whooping cough is increasing. This would, to me at least, suggest that the vaccine is not providing the promised protection against this disease. Or possibly does not work at all? This being the most likely explanation for the increase in whooping cough cases, how can the answer to the problem be yet more of the same vaccine?

The continuation of this one idea is to vaccinate pregnant women, in the hope that new born babies will be protected. Apart from the fact this particular vaccine is failing to provide protection against Pertussis, how sure can one be that acquired immunity will pass to the unborn child from the mother in the same way that natural immunity works? Is there any medical evidence I wonder that supports this hypothesis?

If protection does in fact transmit to the unborn, then why is it that mothers who have been vaccinated, also need to have their babies vaccinated, surely there is no need for this if the theory works in practice?

Two widespread industrial chemicals can cause infertility in fish down to at least the fourth generation: The plastics chemical bisphenol A (BPA) and a key ingredient in human birth control pills, according to a study conducted by researchers from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and published in the journal Scientific Reports.

“We were looking at things that can be important in reproduction and survival, the fertilization rate and the survival of embryos,” researcher Donald Tillit said.

Prior studies have shown that certain pollutants can induce changes that are passed on to offspring.

“What we know now is it can occur in fish,” Tillit said. “Now we know that fish exposed can pass the effects to offspring several generations down.”

Grandchildren, great-grandchildren affected

The study was conducted in the laboratory, where researchers exposed developing fish embryos to BPA or to 17a-ethinylestradiol (EE2, a major ingredient in oral contraceptives). Both chemicals have been confirmed as endocrine disruptors that can cause developmental disorders.

The fish were observed and allowed to reproduce, and their offspring were also observed for three generations. Other than the original generation, none of the fish were exposed to the chemicals.

No reproductive abnormalities were observed in the exposed fish, or in their offspring. The third generation of exposed fish (the “grandchildren”), however, exhibited a 30 decrease in fertility compared with fish whose ancestors had never been exposed. The next generation (“great-grandchildren”) had a 20 percent drop in fertility.

“If those trends continued, the potential for declines in overall population numbers might be expected in future generations,” researcher Ramji Bhandari said. “These adverse outcomes, if shown in natural populations, could have negative impacts on fish inhabiting contaminated aquatic environments.”

“This study shows that even though endocrine disruptors may not affect the life of the exposed fish, it may negatively affect future generations.”

The multigenerational effects observed likely belong to the field of epigenetics, which studies the way that changes in gene expression (rather than the DNA itself) can be passed on to future generations. Studies have shown that everything from BPA and pesticides to changes in the maternal diet can cause epigenetic changes down to four or more generations.

Endocrine disruptors widespread

The chemicals studied are both widespread in the environment, and like other pollutants they tend to concentrate in aquatic environments.

BPA is a chemical used to make plastics hard and transparent, and also to make resins that line food and beverage cans – both of which can cause it to leach into human food and from there into the water supply. BPA is also used in a variety of common non-food consumer and industrial products, including electronics and even the paper used to print receipts.

In recent years, concerns over the health effects of BPA have led to a proliferation of “BPA-free” products. Unfortunately, studies suggest that these substitutes have the same health effects as BPA.

EE2 is a major ingredient in birth control pills, and about 68 percent of all EE2 in such pills has been shown to pass out of the body unchanged in urine or excrement.

Even though EE2 passes into the environment in such large quantities, a 2010 USGS study showed that the amount of estrogen released into drinking water by birth control pills is utterly dwarfed by the amount released from other sources, such as livestock operations and soy and dairy foods. This just goes to show the massive scale on which human are flooding the environment with out-of-place hormones.

This flood of hormones may be one reason for the recently observed phenomenon of male fish in U.S. rivers changing into females. This is also being studied by the USGS.

curcuminI have two cases at the moment that are most topical as there is in the news this week an article where senior medical people ask for the capping of costs for IVF treatment. http://www.bbc.com/news/health-34658354. Whatever one thinks, and Nature appears to be ignored in this discussion, the creation of a child other than by natural means is clearly a huge lot of trouble not to mention the cost to the State. So, is there possibly a way round this, and avoiding noxious chemicals? There just might be, for some.

 

I have a friend, who does not believe in natural remedies, who has produced twin boys after three attempts at IVF. I also have a client who was troubled with serious menstrual pains. She had uterine fibroids that she asked me if I could help with. I immediately suggested Home Cures Serrapeptase Strong ™ and Home Cures Curcumin99™. She has recently emailed me to say she is so delighted, she is pregnant and deliriously happy after trying for years to have a baby.

serrapeptaseThe first lady did not take any Serrapeptase or Curcumin, despite entreaties; the second has had a good result. However, one thing is clear from this;  that infertility is not always insurmountable. Yes it is on the increase, lifestyle taking a massive part of the blame. No, it is not always the end of the story before the IVF route. And natural remedies are known to be better than any chemicals. Here are extracts from Lady N° 2’s emails of her route to happiness.

In November 2014 I stopped « The Pill » because of the risks of the possible cancerous and other unwanted side effects…. I rather think that it is possibly the pill that was the cause of my pains and almost certainly my fibroids.

In July 2015 I saw a Consultant for my painful periods and it was found that I had small , 8mm, fibroids, considered too small to do anything about with conventional medication. As I said I had stopped contraception in November 2014, … and then, thanks to an article on the internet, in September this year I contacted you. Then in October I got pregnant. I am so happy !

If you would like to Use Serrapeptase and Curcumin to help you get Pregnant you can buy Serrapeptase ™ or buy Curcumin 99™ they are available from Home Cures Natural Remedies.
