As a momma that nursed both of her babies due to the miraculous stuff it provides, I found this article about human milk and inflammation quite interesting.
I especially loved this, Buescher calls mother’s milk “a mix of medicines.” Our bodies truly our amazing.

Fascinating. I breast-fed my daughter, too, Cathy. :o)
The article's assertion that breast milk somehow “prevents calcium, which ignites the inflammatory response, from entering white blood cells …” caught my attention. Like most of us who have RA, I take a daily calcium supplement. Is the calcium making my inflammation worse? Hmmm. Another good question for the doc.
Thanks for sharing that article. Have a lovely, peaceful, pain-free Sunday!
Wren, nursing is an awesome experience, isn't it?
I'm checking with a source on calcium/magnesium connection.
Enjoy you thanksgiving Wren. May it be pain free and full of laughter.
Breast milk is amazing! Breastmilk also has a lot of properties to help with anti histamine levels and allergies. I had a lactation specialist tell me how lucky it is that I chose to breastfeed my daughter since she has allergies and if she wasn't breastfeeding, her alleriges would probably be even worse.
