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.

The mini energizer
Of all the nutrients we take in to keep our well, keep ourselves sharp, and live long, the two most important nutrients are air and water.
I have been concentrating on water, because I have no idea what one could do with the air itself. I know there is less and less oxygen percentage wise in the air we breathe, and I know that there are impurities in the air. I also know that air is a carrier of nourishing thought or destructive thought, but I haven't been able to crack the puzzle how I can influence it.
So I am dealing with water. After all 70% of our body is water, and if there is something wrong with our water, the water we drink, the water we bathe in, then we'll be less than we could be.
Dumber, sluggish, pimply, and maybe even sick. Our hair will lack shine, our eyes will lack a spark, and our mood will be downcast.

I need some protein, says Charlie when I ask what he wants to buy on our weekly shopping trip.
Charlie is a student of mine, and he takes me shopping: I don't drive.
He makes 16 ingredient salads and also buys protein.
I get some ground buffalo, eggs, Chorizo, half and half, and butter.
I sample some cherries on the way: my stomach is quick to inform me that it was a bad move. It's cramping from two cherries. Wow.

I love vegetables and fruits... but my body doesn't
I used to be able to eat most anything. Not any more.
Whether it has something to do with my vibration (it's 970/1,000 now) or not, I don't know.
I had nothing in the refrigerator, other than the tuna cans I have for the cat. But I had some brussel sprouts and I decided to take a risk.
For the past about six months every time I touch vegetables, except beets, my stomach lurches.

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.
