Trouble Connecting With self, Others & a Higher Power?

Trouble Connecting With self, Others & a Higher Power?
Are you creating emotional & spiritual disconnection in ways you never imagined could create this?

Every once in a while, I read a book that is life changing for me. I just read one such book & I want to share it with you.

Over 50 years ago, I read two books that changed my life and health dramatically: 'Silent Spring' by Rachel Carson, and 'The Poisons In Your Food’ by William Longgood. From that time on I've eaten only organic and unprocessed foods. I went from being a sickly child and young adult to a very healthy adult. Through the years I've been fascinated with what creates health, and I've continue to read current books. But it's not until I read "Gut And Psychology Syndrome" by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, M.D., that I began to thoroughly understand what really creates excellent physical health and what deeply affects emotional health.

Dr. Campbell-McBride healed her little son of autism and then went on to do much research on the root causes of autism, ADD, ADHD, Aspergers, OCD, depression, bi-polar disorder and Schizophrenia; as well as heart disease, cancer and autoimmune diseases. What she has discovered is mind-blowing.

In a nutshell: A baby is born with a sterile gut. Babies get their first dose of beneficial gut flora as they come through the birth canal, because, in a healthy woman, the vagina is full of beneficial flora – healthy probiotic bacteria. However, if the mother is not healthy, then the baby receives opportunistic, unhealthy bacteria. Or, if the baby is born via C-section, then the baby receives no flora. The next dose of hopefully healthy bacteria comes through the mother's milk. Again, if the mother is unhealthy, the baby receives unhealthy bacteria. If the mother doesn't breastfeed, then baby obviously doesn't receive the beneficial bacteria. If the baby is fed formula with soy or preservatives, any good bacteria is quickly destroyed, and can be further destroyed by antibiotics, drugs, chlorinated water and processed foods. This leaves the child open to many problems. This is what Dr. Campbell-McBride calls GAPS – Gut and Psychology Syndrome.

It's evident from the research she sites that GAPS not only creates brain symptoms such as autism, schizophrenia, ADD, ADHD, bi-polar disorder, OCD, Asperger's and so on, but also digestive disorders, colic in babies, Crohn's disease, asthma, allergies, food intolerances, and eventually diabetes, autoimmune diseases, heart disease and cancer.

A baby whose immune system is so compromised, who then is vaccinated, can react to the viruses in the vaccine by becoming autistic. 20 years ago, one in 10,000 children were diagnosed with autism, and now it's one in 88. Unhealthy parents, C-sections, lack of breastfeeding, antibiotics, sugar and processed foods, environmental chemicals and chlorinated water all contribute to the imbalance of flora in the intestines.
