Last week I was sitting at a table with my friend who is a doula and two mamas who had natural births. Over dinner, we were discussing breast milk. Wonderful, amazing, incredible breast milk. Great for babies, of course. It's sweet, we unanimously decided. And it cures everything.
Rashes, yeast, ear infections, pink eye, acne, cuts, diaper rash, sunburn, dry skin ... you name it. Wonder milk. Nature's cure made just by mama. It even kills 40 different types of cancer cells. It's amazing. We are amazing creatures for being able to make something that cures so much. Breast milk is medicine. And if you needed further proof, it was just discovered that it helps reverse antibiotic resistance and protects people from pneumonia and staph infections. Here we were for so many years throwing antibiotics at every little thing making the drug less effective, when we could have just done a few shot's of mama's milk and saved the antibiotics for when it's really needed.
