- Breast milk may help combat eye infections
Breast milk contains natural antibiotic qualities, and many mothers swear that a squirt
in the irritated eye of their baby has cleared up the problem in short order. Still today in the villages’ eye infections of the people are treated with milk
of breast feeding mothers.
- Breastfeeding may lower blood pressure in Childhood
A 2004 study of 4763 British
children showed that 7.5 years later, those who were breastfed as infants had lower blood pressure
compared with those who were never breastfed. In another new study from the U.K., a small but important
reduction in adult diastolic blood pressure is associated with having been breastfed as an
- Breastfed babies smell fantastic
No scientific study needed here. There is something almost magical about the scent of
your own breastfed baby, whether you're the mother or father involved. Try it, you'll like
- Breastfed babies are healthier over-all
Kaiser Permanente, one of the
largest HMOs in the U.S. has conducted internal research to determine the value of the company lactation
support program. This research found that breastfed babies had many health advantages over formula-fed
babies, including better overall health.
- Breastfeeding mothers spend less time and money on doctor visits
In 1995 the Kaiser-Permanente
Health Maintenance Organization in North Carolina found that formula-fed babies averaged over $1,400 more
per year in additional health care costs than breastfed infants.
- Breastfeeding may lower the risk of developing high cholesterol
A recent British study found that
breastfeeding seems to be associated with lower levels of damaging cholesterol in adulthood. The authors
concluded that breastfeeding may have long-term benefits for cardiovascular
- Breast milk acts like a
natural tranquilizer for baby
Mother's milk contains chemicals that seem to work like "knock-out drops" for tired babies.
Even if baby doesn't fall asleep, he/she will certainly calm down and become more agreeable. If you choose to
breastfeed into toddlerhood, you may find that the "terrible twos" never materialize.
- Breastfed babies require fewer doctor visits
Since breastfed babies are
statistically healthier, they see the doctor less often.
- Breast milk is free
Any way you look at it, you'll spend a lot more money if you choose to formula feed.
The added calories a nursing mother must take in are a negligible expense, and nursing clothes are
optional. If you need to pump, excellent pumps are available for between $50 and $225. A good pump can be
used for more than one child, so they are really an investment. Do be sure to buy a pump manufactured by
a company specializing in their manufacture. Beware of pumps made by formula companies. Many woman report
these pumps to be inefficient at best, and painful at worst.
- Breastfeeding is easier than using formula
After the initial start up period, breastfeeding is very easy. All you have to do is
raise your shirt and let the little one latch on. No shopping for formula, bottles, and other supplies.
No mixing, heating, refrigerating and cleaning up of formula. If you sleep with your baby, or sleep the
baby next to your bed, you can forget about all the disturbing nighttime rituals associated with formula
use. All you have to do is roll over, let the baby latch on, and go back to
- Formula is expensive
It presently costs upward of $1,200 dollars per year to formula feed an infant in the
United States. If you factor in the added medical cost you are statistically likely to incur, that brings
the cost up to around $2,500 per year. If your baby happens to require a hypo-allergenic formula, you
will have to pay considerably more
- Breast milk always has the right proportions of fat, carbohydrates and
Formula companies are constantly
adjusting these proportions looking for the best composition. The reality is that a mother's milk
composition changes from feeding to feeding depending on the needs of her child. No formula can do that!
According to the American Dietetic Association "human milk provides optimal nutrition to the infant with
its dynamic composition and the appropriate balance of nutrients provided in easily digestible and bio
- Breastfeeding contributes to optimal child spacing
First of all, please know that it
is certainly possible to get pregnant while you are still breastfeeding. However, many breastfeeding
women do not ovulate for the first 6 months or so following the birth of a new baby. This is true only
for those who are exclusively breastfeeding (no supplements or solid food), and have not yet gotten their
periods back following childbirth. Night nursing encourages longer amenorrhoea (periodlessness). If you
really don't want to get pregnant again, use some back up birth control even if you haven't gotten your
period again. Unless you are carefully following a natural family planning program, you will have no way
of knowing when your first ovulation will occur, and by the time you figure it out you may be expecting!
Still, generally speaking, breastfeeding contributes to optimum child
- Breastfeeding enhances vaccine effectiveness
Breastfed infants showed better serum
and secretory responses to oral and parenteral vaccines than those
- Breastfeeding results in less sick days for parents

Breastfeeding may continue until
three hours before arrival time at the hospital in healthy children having elective

"Dear PAM, Thank you very much for the attunement.
I would like to add that I have been attuned by three Masters before in the traditional manner, but your attunement
felt the most intense. In fact, even as I type this, I can feel the energy on my crown Chakra, 7 hours later! In
fact it has not really left me all day!" Thank you, and God Bless.KAMALA."
Dear Pam, I really wanted to help the sick all my life; I
knew it was somehow going to be my destiny, to be able to help others in need. I may want to teach in the future,
but for now, you have made my dream come true ... I just want to say "Thank you!" Now I am a Reiki Master Teacher.
Dear master PAM, I have been practicing Reiki (Level I)
for about 9 years and just last week I was attuned to the other levels by you and Master Premila. It was quite an
intense week! I physically and emotionally felt the Energy you were sending. On one specific occasion, I awoke and
found my hands vibrating." LEILA
I can feel the energy flowing through my body, and my
energy channels opening to accept the reiki attunement. It is the most amazing sensation. My husband said my palms
were hot and he could feel a tingling sensation from my hand." - PASCALLE
"My whole life has changed for the better after receiving
Attunement from Master Pam and Master Premila. Since then I have given Distance Reiki to friends who were pregnant
and they have felt a tremendous difference in their lives too." - JENIFER
