Extended Breastfeeding and Natural Immunity goes hand in hand. The average world-wide (with the exception of the United States and European countries) weaning age of children is 2.5 to 7 years of age.
It is very interesting that the average age of weaning is 2.5 to 7 years of age because the natural immune system fully goes “online” at approximately 2.5 years old. What I mean by the immune system going “online” is that at birth, the child’s immune system is fully functional BUT not “reacting” yet.
Let me explain a bit further. Let me try to paint a picture here: Imagine that you have entered a very new environment and that your body has no idea of what is safe and what isn’t safe. So the mother breastfeeds her child and passes on immunity through the milk and as the newborn grows and becomes an infant then toddler, their bodies are exposed to various germs and diseases from their explorations and exposure to people and places in the world and their immune system is learning and being programmed for what is safe and isn’t safe. Breastfed babies are usually much more healthier with less incidences of illnesses per year compared to their non-breastfed peers.
Breast milk is completely made for human babies with THOUSANDS of ingredients that are perfect for every stage of the child’s development as the child grows. Whereas formula is made with approximately 8 basic ingredients with synthetic minerals and vitamins added from birth and onwards.
Not only that, it helps the child psychologically, mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually thrive being breastfed and bonded with their mother and ensures their very survival and the ability to fully thrive beyond the newborn, infant, and toddler years.
The other factor is “vaccinations”. As I stated above, the baby has natural immunity system that isn’t “reacting” for the first 2.5 years as it’s being programmed. However, if a parent chooses to vaccinate their child without realizing this basic premise, then their child’s immune system is being forced to react – continually react – from vaccinations from birth and onwards until vaccinations stop at a much later age. When a baby’s immune system is forced to continually react with multiple shots at every visit, then there’s a lot of inflammation everywhere in the body, especially in the brain, when the brain should be focused on rapid development for their first months & years of life but it’s forced to deal with the the reaction from the vaccines.
Vaccines does not touch the natural immune system that we are born with because vaccines bypasses a lot of the natural immune system layers & processes, therefore, vaccines creates a man-made immune system. This is what the immunologists actually studies because they still do not have full understanding nor idea of how the true natural immune system works A-Z. So it’s not very surprising that there has been an increase in diseases like auto-immune diseases, cancers, allergies, autism, disorders of all kinds, and so on with the vaccines and with the numbers of vaccines increasing annually.
One shot of any vaccine, already far more than exceeds FDA allowable limits for many of the ingredients and yet, our children are being given so many multiple vaccines at one sitting starting right at birth and onwards until the teen years so it isn’t rocket science to put two & two together and see what is happening to our children. Vaccines does not confer long-term immunity compared to natural immunity which does confer lifetime immunity. It is also very interesting that children are aggressively sought after for vaccines compared to adults as the rates dramatically drops off for vaccinations. Another food for thought is: with natural immunity & diseases, you just have to deal with the situation right then & there and get lifetime immunity compared to receiving shots and dealing with “the after effects” of these shots for years and potentially for life and also there is the possibility of never being exposed to that specific disease in your lifetime. If you want to talk about herd immunity, the already vaccinated groups are usually where outbreaks & epidemics originates from and has higher percentages affected compared to the non-vaccinated so that busts the herd immunity myth. The Amish is a great example to point to as they’re not vaccinated and yet, they do not experience outbreaks or epidemics – and the Amish does interact with people from outside their communities so there are ample opportunities for disease to strike.
Lastly, I’d like to bring up co-sleeping & baby wearing as babies are meant to be close to the mother or the primary caregiver for their first months & first years of life to ensure their survival and proper development in all aspects that is of great benefit currently and far into their lifetime. Especially preventing Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) when combined with Breastfeeding / Extended Breastfeeding, opting out of vaccines, co-sleeping & baby wearing. More and more hospitals today are recognizing the importance of baby-wearing – especially in NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) called “Kangaroo Care” where the baby is touched skin to skin bodily with the mother or their primary caregivers and they recover much more quickly than ones that aren’t given skin to skin contact. And the hospitals are promoting keeping babies close with their mothers in their room than being separated from the mothers and taken off to nursery for hours on end all swaddled up and left alone in their own bassinet.
We already have a PERFECT natural immune system, food in breast milk, and closeness from co-sleeping & baby wearing as the mother usually instinctively does that, that which was created and thought of thoroughly & fully by the Creator. God does not make any mistakes and Humanity has survived for millennia & eons just fine until we decided to interfere and mess with the Divine design like we have in Western Civilization.
We aren’t even giving babies the opportunity anymore to enter the world as a Perfect Creation that just came from God. What happened to us, as a civilization, that has become fearful and distrusting of the Divine Creation and altering our babies in all aspects borne out of our “fears”. Now, our babies only know of fear, being prodded & poked without love & gentleness by strangers, experiencing pain of being pricked with so many shots and having all these foreign objects & chemicals being injected in their pure & clean bodies and they’ve only been in the world for a few minutes after being born and what’s worse, they haven’t even been able to touch & bond their mom, search for life-sustaining milk, rest & acclimate after all the work of being born in this world which is so much different from Spirit, and especially, where is the True Love & Joy that should have been theirs right from the moment of their birth?
I think the greatest and sad irony is that as we grow older, we become more concerned about our health and we go crazy trying to become healthy and have our bodies be pure & clean again so that we can have great health and not age horribly. And here we are, polluting and subverting the Divine Health that God had already given to us in the first place as newborns.
As adults, we do understand (if we aren’t confused already by society & science) what we need to do to be healthy and in turn, disease-free. Then why are we treating our miracles horribly from the get-go & doing this to our babies & children and calling it Love? That’s just insanity.
With Much Love -
