As i write this my little boy is recovering from NEC for the 2nd time.
Alex was born 11 weeks early due to me having really bad pre-eclampsia he weighed 2lb 1oz. He suffered a enlarge liver a heart murmur when he was a week old then he started to get better and when he was 4 weeks 6 days old we went to the hospital and he taken a turn for the worst he was placed back on a ventilator, his tiny body had swelled and i was told to prepare myself as they was sure he wouldn’t make it. they was in contact with Jessops at Sheffield and transferred him there it took from 11:30 am till 9:30 pm to stabilize him for him to moved he survived the night the medication seemed to be working then 14 days after he was transferred they rushed him into theatre as he worsened and found the infection had twisted his bowel. he recovered from this and 2 weeks later he was transferred back and seemed to get better and he was there for 3 days and i come into hospital and he was all swelled up again and he had to be rushed back to jessops as NEC infection is back were now waiting to see if he recovers from this.

    Hi Medjoub,I think that we could look closely at cruaultl practices around the world and identify food/microbe strategies that could cure most diseases. Medicine is slowly being forced to reveal some simple dietary cures for disease, but these will be competing with the expensive treatments of the pharmaceutical industry.We are not good at managing ecosystems, whether they are rain forests or gut flora. Extermination of individual species can produce rapid or slow collapse of the ecosystem. We can also end up with replanted forests that are good for harvesting, but are ecological dead zones. The gut equivalent results from eating a fast food or government-guided diet. In that case, the gut flora produces an ideal consumer for the medical industry.Thanks for your comments.
