 Formal Milk Sharing | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Human milk has been shared since the olden days. Informal milk sharing takes place when one mother has a surplus of breast milk and another has a need. These moms get together so their babies both receive sufficient nourishment.Formal milk sharing or milk banking takes place when moms donate their surplus breast milk to a profit or non-profit agency. That agency then screens, pasteurizes, and distributes the milk.With informal milk sharing, there are some risks. The health of the donors is the primary concern. Moms should be in good health after a healthy pregnancy. Blood testing is valuable to prevent the passing of hepatitis B or C or HIV. Current eating habits, smoking, and alcohol consumption are also concerns. Toxin exposure, regular medications, and supplements are good to know. How is the milk expressed and stored? The milk should contain no additives (like cow’s milk) or be watered down. You want your baby to have the safest, best possible sustenance.If you are considering informal milk sharing, an in-person conversation with the donor mother should help you assess her fit as a donor for your child.The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has a policy statement for pre-term infants in a hospital setting, strongly endorsing the use of pasteurized donor milk. There isn't currently a policy statement regarding informal milk sharing for healthy infants in the home setting. The AAP doesn’t currently endorse the practice, but it is common. You should discuss it with your pediatrician if you are considering participation in informal milk sharing.High-risk infants have an immature immune system and are at high risk for infection. Pre-term infants should stick to pasteurized donor milk from a milk bank where donors are screened.Listen as Dr. Margaret Parker and Dr. Michelle Brenner join Melanie Cole, MS in this encore episode from 2018, to share their best advice for milk sharing.

A recent Gallup poll found that most people feel dismissed or ignored by their doctors. They just don't have the time or interest in getting to know their patients.Then there are the excessive costs, which leave many unable to get the healthcare they need. But our guest today has spent his entire medical career putting into practice the idea that healing should be a loving human connection, not a business transaction. He has traveled throughout the world delivering a message of peace, friendship, love, and many of you may recognize his name from the Golden Globe award-nominated film Patch Adams, starring Robin Williams.Dr. Patch Adams graduated from the Medical College of Virginia in 1971. From there, he opened the Gesundheit Institute, a pilot project that has helped over 15,000 patients in a large six-bedroom communal home. This embarked him on a journey to build a hospital that would eliminate the outrageous healthcare costs and allow doctors to connect. In this episode, we'll hear about his upbringing, depression as a symptom of loneliness, the power of friendliness in medical diagnosis, and his plans for a holistic hospital.

 Herbal Supplements: Should You Use Them? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Herbal supplements worked for your friend's kid, but should you give them to your child?Parents want to help kids feel great. Many look to herbal supplements to aid health and performance. How do you know these supplements are safe?First, the health supplement industry is not regulated. They could potentially be contaminated with something unsafe. There can also be potency irregularities on the shelf.However, many companies self-regulate. Check the label for evidence of screening by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP). This means it isn’t contaminated and potency matches the label.Additionally, tell your providers what products you’re giving your child. Some herbal products react poorly to medications. Your provider can prescribe medications with full awareness of your child’s supplements.A healthy diet and enough sleep go a long way to support your child’s wellness.For children on antibiotics, probiotics can nurture good bacteria. Start probiotics at the same time you begin antibiotic treatment.Zinc reduces the duration of respiratory symptoms by three to four days. Start zinc within 24 to 48 hours of the start of infection. It can cause the loss of a sense of smell in some people, so zinc supplements are not recommended on a regular basis.Fish oils or omega-3s are often lacking in the foods we eat. They promote better mental health and can support the efficacy of psychiatric medication.Be wary of anecdotal recommendations. Just because it worked for your friend doesn’t mean it will work for you.Listen as Dr. Cora Breuner joins Melanie Cole, MS, to discuss which supplements you can share with your child and when, and which supplements it’s better to avoid in this encore episode from November 2018.
