    thanks all!!

    so...my breastfeeding struggles turned into abscesses that needed surgery!! ugh! sigh. so....it's been many years since i've taken antibiotics...i was on IV abx for 5 days and then oral abx for 10 days. how do i repair the damage to my gut?
    i'm currently breastfeeding my sweet girl on one breast and having to give her donor milk---so grateful for the mommas who have shared their milk so that i can keep my girl off formula! i do hope and plan to nurse on the other side once completely healed.
    i'm loading up-even more so-on dha, sunlight and drinking tons of turmeric tea and water.

    anyhow, aside from that....my little girl is amazing! very alert and SO CALM and CONTENT. <---this makes her very predictable. her fussing has a reason. no guessing. and fussing is rare and short. fussing is...i am hungry, i need to burp, i am tired. she sleeps a lot. i forgot how much newborns sleep. her circadian rhythm continues to be pretty great--and she is night nursing more which i am pretty happy about actually. co-sleeping makes 'breast sleeping/night nursing' easy. and my circadian rhythm doesn't get messed up. she wakes with the roosters-just like my little boy.

    so, again friends, id love advice/suggestions on how to repair my gut and body after the onslaught of antibiotics--of which i am grateful for--the abscesses in my breast were cultured as strep.

    That is too bad about needing antibiotics. Maybe drink kombucha and eat raw sauerkraut? Fish head smoothies maybe?

    is it a guaranteed given that my gut is trashed? from the abx? or can it maybe not be so bad sine i do load up on dha, sun etc.

    Your gut will heal, do not worry :)
    Just tan a lot nude in the morning sun... stay connected to the earth.... avoid nnEMF and fake light.. eat stuff with lots of bacteria in it... like raw seafood.... fermented hearts, wild herbs with a little dirt on them etc etc... you will be fine :)
    I think our bodies are pretty serious healing machines when we just get the environment right :) :) :)

    so...sunlight on my gut and breasts every morning...and some days in the afternoon too...and really, i feel amazing. i don't know what the state of my gut is from all the abx but i'm feeling well. and the incisions in my breast from the surgery are healing beautifully and quickly. the surgeon commented on how well they are healing and looking.
    also...my milk supply in the left breast is increasing...i'm just really thrilled and pleased and grateful for the info shared here.

    finding the book at the thrift store was a moment of entanglement for me.
    being obsessed with light lately...then seeing the book at the store-for twenty five cents!!!
    the book is basic. talks a lot about what dr kruse tells us about light.
    it's simple. i've enoyed reading it.
