Page 18 | Abby's Magazine - Many children have digestive problems that they are not even aware of. Colic, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, feeding difficulties, trouble sleeping, and many other "chronic" but accepted maladies. When looking at a child with digestive problems, the majority of cases will have started at or around the time of weaning. When the mother replaces breast milk with formula, other food components get introduced that are not natural to a babies gut flora, like gluten, whey protein concentrate, palm olein, soy, coconut, high- oleic safflower oils, lactose etc… Many adults don't remember much of their eating habits in the first years of life. Assuming they did not have a severe reaction to these new compounds which would have raised red flags for any parents, they could have had little noticed or missed responses to the food like a fussy sleeper, or a baby that vomits a lot. Many parents will tell you this is "normal for a baby", they will "grow out of it". While this is true for some, in more and more cases, people are realizing that it doesn't have to be this way. Unless there is an undiagnosed medical condition, babies that are fed the way their guts were designed, do not have these problems. This is not to say that even a baby fed perfectly won't have problems occasionally. The gastric system is incredibly complex. That being said, these temporary problems are just that, temporary. If a problem is happening at every feeding for weeks on end, then it is likely a problem on the intake side of the track. Children who are born with severely damaged gut flora are not only more susceptible to disease; they're also more susceptible to vaccine damage, which may help explain why some children develop symptoms of autism after receiving one or more childhood vaccinations. According to Dr. Campbell-McBride, most autistic children are born with perfectly normal brains and sensory organs. The trouble arises when they fail to develop normal gut flora. In a previous interview, she explained the chain of events that is typical for many, if not most, autistic children: "What happens in these children [is that] they do not develop normal gut flora from birth… As a result, their digestive system—instead of being a source of nourishment for these children—becomes a major source of toxicity. These pathogenic microbes inside their digestive tract damage the integrity of the gut wall. So all sort of toxins and microbes flood into the bloodstream of the child, and get into the brain of the child." "That usually happens in the second year of life in children who were breast fed because breastfeeding provides a protection against this abnormal gut flora. In children who were not breastfed, I see the symptoms of autism developing in the first year of life. So breastfeeding is crucial to protect these children." ... If the child's brain is clogged with toxicity, the child misses that window of opportunity of learning and starts developing autism depending on the mixture of toxins, depending on how severe the whole condition is, and how severely abnormal the gut flora is in the child." It's important to understand that the gut flora your child acquires during Your Child's Health Starts in the Gut ALL DISEASES BEGIN IN THE GUT -Hippocrates, 460-370 BC By Victor Karydis
