There are some unchallenged myths about well-being, being emotionally and intellectually well-adjusted, that are ripe to be challenged.
One of the myths, one of the urban legends is that infants, when they grow up in an institution, and aren't touched, held, they develop to be emotionally disturbed, aloof, self-absorbed, etc. adults.
But what if there is more to this early development than meets the eye? What if it isn't about being held? What if it is the food they are given is at fault? What if it is the baby formula?
Some of my closest associates were either adopted as infants, were prematurely born, and were not breast fed as infants.
We demonstrate the personality traits that are described in the following excerpt from an article by Bruce Perry

Healing is a lot like picking a lock. Or sometimes it is even as complicated as hacking into the computer of a bank... the variables are many, and you have to hang in with each option long enough to see if it might be taking you to someplace.
I've been sick from the moment I was born. Stomach ache, belly ache, nausea, bloating, pain to the touch, disgust with food, overweight, underweight, these were obviously digestion related.
Depression, light-headedness, fogginess, anger, temper-tantrums, dyslexia, being disturbed, being an outsider, being different... these don't seem to have anything to do with digestion.
I was treated with harsh medications for duodenal ulcers for 25 years. Obviously the treatment didn't work. I had no pylori bacteria, I was just in pain and miserable. No matter what I ate, I had pain from eating. At one point I was 96 lbs, considered anorexic. I just didn't eat: when I didn't eat it didn't hurt.

I have been addicted to milk, sour cream, half and half, all my life.
How do you know that someone is truly addicted?
There are two symptoms:
- They can't be satisfied with a normal amount to consume of something they are addicted to. They have to go hog wild, until they can't do more. That describes my relationship to milk to a T.
- If they don't have the "stuff" they will go to get some over broken glass... this isn't quite true for me, maybe 40%
In the book I mention in my previous article, I learned that my gut flora changes the protein in milk and milk products to opiates.
To your information: opiates are the addictive ingredients in opium, in heroin, in pain killer that you need a prescription for.

I was born a preemie. I had horrible colic my entire childhood, I was skinny, and I threw up every night. I hated food and was a picky eater.
At 9 I was diagnosed with yeast infection and had to go to treatments to the other end of town every week. I took 3 buses to get there and 3 to get back home. 80 minutes each way.
I had stomach ulcers, my hair was falling out in patches, and I started to show signs or emotional instability.
I wasn't going to be beaten by anything, so I developed a discipline a fakir would be proud to have.
I never had a good day, and I didn't even know I could. Of course the diagnosis, yeast infection, was forgotten, and I was treated for the symptoms, ulcers, depression, insomnia, muscle aches, headaches, especially migraines, irritable blowel syndrome, thinning hair, skin rashes and pimples.
