How To Raise A Healthy Child In Spite Of Your Doctor’
By Robert S. Mendelsohn, M.D.
Another book, also by Robert S. Mendelsohn, M.D.
*’The Medical Time Bomb of Immunization’
This book is an important mention. Actually, both of these books come highly recommended toward much discovery before the ‘Birth Day’ arrives. I feel so sure about sharing these with you. I feel that it will best suit you to be ‘armed’ with this information when the Medical Community does what it can to begin proceedings to ‘take over’ the life of your New Born.
*Sadly, ‘The Medical Time Bomb of Immunization’ seems to be out-of-print and not available for me to link to for you. Perhaps you can find a copy through e-Bay or else where. Good Luck!
Here are some interesting facts for when Pregnant and Nursing;
Thee most important thing to keep in mind while being Pregnant and Nursing is to remain Hydrated throughout.
Drink enough Water (depending on your weight of course, anywhere upwards from 2 to 4 quarts of Pure Water per 24 hour period).
Also Drink, Healthful Broths, Juices (preferably fresh), Green Drinks, Special ‘Teas’ that help to ease Pregnancy & increase Lactation.
Freshly made Vegetable Juice, mostly with Carrot and added Super Greens was a staple that helped me while I was Pregnant. I lived in Southern California at the time, where it was very easy to Eat Raw and Healthful. Fresh Oranges or Pineapple with Parsley and Kale. Zuchinni dipped into Butter with Lemon was a regular. I mostly looked forward to those Super Dark Leafy Green Salads with Blended Dressings, made using Avocados, Tomatoes with Onion. Ahh, so rightfully delicious and perfect!… Not to mention Healthy!
Lactogenic Foods are substances that have been known to encourage a Healthful Pregnancy as well as increase the Breast Milk supply in Human Mothers.
Lactogenic Foods include: It appears that Foods high in E.F.A.s do supply the needed Nutrients in the creation of Lactogenic Foods. Essential Fatty Acids are Foods that provide all of the Omega 3s, Omega 6s & Omega 9s.
Foods also high in E.F.A.s like Avocados, Spirulina, Parsley, Barley, Kale & other ‘Super Greens’ have also help increase Lactation.
Vegetables to aid increased Lactation: Asparagus, again Avocados (since they are good!), Beets, Dandelion, Green Beans, Oatmeal, Sweet Potatoes, Peas, Yam, Watercress,
Butter (recommend Un-Salted), Chia Seed Oil, Olive Oil, Hemp Seed, Sesame Oil are all Healthy Fats and recommended for the Pregnant & Nursing Mother.
After Eating some Papaya, some Olives and Millet with Unsalted Butter sounds so good to me right now! Sprinkled with a small handful of Chia Seed and some Nutritional Yeast—which helps with much needed Essential B Vitamins & Minerals. … Yum!
Millet would be an exceptional Food to add into the daily Diet of a Pregnant & Nursing Mother since it is one of two ‘grains’ (Not really a Grain) that is not Acid Ash Forming. In other words, it can help with Alkalinity. Millet is also high in an array of useful Nutrients that do aid in increased Lactation.
Interesting To Note: D.H.A. levels are high through Breast Milk, regardless of dietary choices. (See Essential Fatty Acids)
Herbs for increased Lactation include Anise, Basil, Caraway, Dill, Fennel, Fenugreek is exceptional & Garlic is said to help increase Breast Milk production (though personally, I have my doubts about Garlic. It is well known as an astringent & very ‘Yang’, meaning Warming & very Drying???), Marjoram & Turmeric also help to increase Lactation.
Probiotics support the Optimal Utilization of Food & Supplements and are recommended for Pregnant & Nursing Mothers. Foods like Kefir & Yogurt aid in Digestion with the use of Intestinal Flora. As a supplemental Probiotic Dyna-Pro is designed to create the ideal condition in the gut for good microbes to come out of dormancy, multiply, and thrive.
The Flower, Weed & also Herb known as ‘Stinging Nettle’ has been known as a Blood Builder. Enjoying a cup or two of Nettle Tea after Birth can be useful to rebuild any Blood Loss. It is recommended to have some of the many different Flowers, Herbs, ‘Weeds’ of your choosing on hand for after the Birth to help you to relax, noting of course the possible detrimental effects when the Baby begins to Nurse.
Dr. Robert Mendelsohn, M.D. is an amazing well-respected Doctor that left the ‘church’ of the Medical Profession to pursue more workable, Natural ways of helping people through the Amazing Magical Wonders of the Human Body.
