Health Insurance Company Pays Massive Bonuses to Doctors for Vaccinating Babies
How the Foreskin Protects Against UTI (urinary tract infection)
“We are more alike than we are different. The clitoris and penis are the same
materials assembled in a different way. The clitoris has glans, a foreskin (also known as the hood), erectile tissue and a very small shaft — all the parts that a penis has.”
Mother’s account of how her son remembers he’s circumcision in infancy.
“Myth #2: It doesn’t hurt the baby.
Reality check: Wrong. In 1997, doctors in Canada did a study to see what type of anesthesia was most effective in relieving the pain of circumcision. As with any study, they needed a control group that received no anesthesia.
The doctors quickly realized that the babies who were not anesthetized were in so much pain that it would be unethical to continue with the study. Even the best commonly available method of pain relief studied, the dorsal penile nerve block, did not block all the babies’ pain.
Some of the babies in the study were in such pain that they began choking and one even had a seizure.
Myth #4: Even if it is painful, the baby won’t remember it.
Reality check: The body is a historical repository and remembers everything. The pain of circumcision causes a rewiring of the baby’s brain so that he is more sensitive to pain later (Taddio 1997, Anand 2000).
Circumcision also can cause post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anger, low self-esteem and problems with intimacy (Boyle 2002, Hammond 1999, Goldman 1999 – STUDY). Even with a lack of explicit memory and the inability to protest – does that make it right to inflict pain?
Myth #5: My baby slept right through it.
Reality check: Not possible without total anesthesia, which is not available. Even the dorsal penile nerve block leaves the underside of the penis receptive to pain. Babies go into shock, which though it looks like a quiet state, is actually the body’s reaction to profound pain and distress.
Nurses often tell the parents “He slept right through it” so as not to upset them. Who would want to hear that his or her baby was screaming in agony?”
Shaman of the Yawanawa people
(Pajé do povo Yawanawá)
Beautiful message shared by a Medicine women (Healer/ Shaman/Curandera) from the tribe Yawanawa in Acre, Brasil. Shares her wisdom, love and her life purpose, to leave behind a pure and safe place for her children to live in as times change and modern living takes a toll on Mother Earth.
This is a call to all peoples, especially women to find their inner strength to walk in alignment for a better way of living, with compassion and consciousness for all walks of life, so they may be a better future for our families. One with a healthy planet, our Mother Earth, the sleeping giant that provides us everything to sustain all life and more.
To do this each person must start with changing themselves, to become the walking example of integrity.
