Another ‘invention’ already invented
I have invented and discovered so many things in my mind over the years thinking I was the first one to think about it. Invariably, when I look on the Internet about each item, I find most of the same things have already been invented or discovered, some of them thousands of years ago. How depressing.
One of these items was when I went to K-State in 1947 and I studied dairy manufacturing. That is when I first learned about colostrum. Colostrum is the first mammary-secreted nourishment from any mammal, including man, that gives its newborn for the first 24 to 28 hours of life. It contains numerous immune system compounds and growth factors. These substances trigger at least 50 processes in a newborn, ranging from the development of the immune system in the growth of all body cells. Laboratory analysis of immune and growth factors from bovine (cow) colostrum show that they are identical to those found in humans.
I got to thinking, why, if this is so great for newborns why wouldn’t it help older and aging adults with impaired immune systems? In my own situation, my white count for years had been at the low side of normal. I have done a lot of things over the last 10 years to fight my leukemia, but the most significant was when I started taking colostrum capsules. My white count doubled to a more normal level. This may not be the answer to all questions or illnesses but it did help me.
I learned recently from a new mom that it is also good for healing skin injuries and it can be purchased as a salve as well as in the capsule form.
According to what I have read, there have been over 4,000 clinical studies from around the world describing research on the use of colostrum to treat dozens of different diseases and health problems. I have found hundreds of testimonials on the Internet written by people about their improved health. It is called a transfer factor molecule. It is free of all side effects.
If you are interested in learning more about this just put the word colostrum on the Internet and you will find page after page of information. So much for my new discovery.
