Gut and Child Development

Notes from Gut and Psychology Syndrome

by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride


IN CHILD DEVELOPMENT

All babies are born with an immature immune system. If the establishment of a balanced gut does not take place around the first 20 days of life, then the baby is left immune-compromised.

Many children with ADD, ADHD, Autism, etc. have signs of an imbalanced gut, like gluteomorphons and casomorphins in urine, candida and other opportunistic bacteria in stools.

Many studies have been found that link ADD/ADHD, etc to the MMR vaccine (measles).  Many children are exposed to antibiotics through the breast milk of the mother which can cause repeated ear infections, chest infections, impetigo and mastis in the breastfeeding mother.

The main reason for infantile colic is a dairy allergy fed to the infant through the mother’s consumption of dairy.
