Lac Humanum Great Gift From Human Family

Lac Humanum Great Gift From Human Family 

"As I have worked with these important remedy now when I am starting my practice, I have come to believe that the most profound gift we as humans receive is the sense of self. Could it not therefore be true that when this sense of self is lost, it can be retrieved through the very materials that gave it to us in the first place? These substances are made for the creation of our humanness. It is their sole purpose, as they are discarded as soon as we no longer need them."

I have treating with unexpected great results cases of: eating disorders, addictions, chronic fatigue, depression. I found out by giving this remedy, people in somehow find "that lost self" through the following observation according the effects of this specific remedy:

This remedy repairs on both physical trauma experienced by the body and emotional trauma left in the psyche.

It regenerates of energy, chi, life force when it has been diminished

It restores of esteem and self worth, bringing meaning back into people's lives

It reclaims of the parts of ourselves we have lost along the way

It retrieves of spirit when the life force has been knocked sideways and can go no longer flow.

It reminds that we have a unique identity and purpose to our lives.

I have this case, a girl of 20 years old, she came to me to ask for help to reduce weight, She also suffered from Chronic Fatigue (she couldn't keep a job, because she needed to sleep during the day), she was a big smoker and coffee addictive. When I asked if she was breast fed, she said no...I got the feeling, that Lac Humanum would help her to start the treatment, for my great surprise, only 1 DOSE of Lac Hum 200 ch, finished with her chronic fatigue, she called me to say she was feeling great, like never before, he doesn't need to sleep anymore during the day, now she got 2 jobs. She reduce the cigarettes, and coffee consume. She is in treatment to reduce weight, she already lost 20 pounds in the last month!

Mother's milk changes to fit the health needs of the baby. ‪#‎immunity‬ ‪#‎nature‬

  • "... Mom's milk changes to tailor baby's needs in more ways than just caloric intake.. So this doctor discusses that when a baby nurses, it creates a vacuum in which the infant's saliva sneaks into the mother's nipple. There, it is believed that mammary gland receptors interpret the "baby spit backwash" for bacteria and viruses and, if they detect something amiss (i.e., the baby is sick or fighting off an infection), Mom's body will actually change the milk's immunological composition, tailoring it to the baby's particular pathogens by producing customized antibodies. (Science backs this up. A 2013 Clinical and Translational Immunology study found that when a baby is ill, the numbers of leukocytes in its mother's breast milk spike.) So I filed that away in the back of my mind until I was packing frozen milk into the big deep freeze today."

  • Human Milk Composition: Nutrients and Bioactive Factors

  • The composition of human milk is the biologic norm for infant nutrition. Human milk also contains many hundreds to thousands of distinct bioactive molecules that protect against infection and inflammation and contribute to immune maturation, organ development, and healthy microbial colonization. Some of these molecules, e.g., lactoferrin, are being investigated as novel therapeutic agents. A dynamic, bioactive fluid, human milk changes in composition from colostrum to late lactation, and varies within feeds, diurnally, and between mothers. Feeding infants with expressed human milk is increasing. Pasteurized donor milk is now commonly provided to high risk infants and most mothers in the U.S. express and freeze their milk at some point in lactation for future infant feedings. Many milk proteins are degraded by heat treatment and freeze-thaw cycles may not have the same bioactivity after undergoing these treatments. This article provides an overview of the composition of human milk, sources of its variation, and its clinical relevance.

Myths and Facts About Breastfeeding




Formula is as good as human milk.

Human milk is far superior and cannot be duplicated.  The nutrients and antibodies in human milk are uniquely suited to the physical and mental development of the human baby.  Human milk contains human growth factors while formula based on cow’s milk contains bovine growth factors. The composition of human milk changes during a feeding and as baby grows to meet baby’s changing needs. 


Women should not breastfeed in front of other people.

Breastfeeding is normal and natural and in New Jersey, women have a legal right to breastfeed in public places.

Women who are shy about breastfeeding in public can practice how to feed discretely in front of a mirror to gain confidence. 


If the mother has to go back to work or school, she should not start out breastfeeding.

Many women continue to breastfeed after returning to work or school.  They exclusively breastfeed while on maternity leave then express or pump their milk to leave when they are separated.  If the mother continues to breastfed after returning to work or school, her baby will be healthier and she will be doing something special that no one else can do for her baby. Some women choose formula for when they are separated and breastfeed when she and baby are together.  Any breastfeeding is better than none. 


The breastfeeding mother has to change the way she eats.

There is no special “breastfeeding diet” or list of foods to avoid.

Most women can eat the same foods they are used to eating.

The mother will make good milk no matter what foods she eats.

Mothers around the world eat spicy, flavorful food.  Of course, it is best for the mother to eat a variety of nutritious foods to stay healthy.


If the mother is sick, she has to stop breastfeeding.

If mother gets sick, her baby has already been exposed to her illness and mother's milk will have antibodies to protect the baby.  If baby does get sick, the illness is likely to be less severe.  Mothers can breastfeed if they have a cold or flu.  Mothers should not breastfeed if they have HIV, active untreated tuberculosis, or HTLV‑1.  Most over the counter and prescription medications are safe to take while breastfeeding.


Women who smoke should not breastfeed.

All women are encouraged to stop smoking or at least cut down.  It is better for the baby if the mother smokes and breastfeeds than it is if the mother smokes and does not breastfeed.  It is the secondhand smoke that causes babies to have more health problems than what is passed through the milk.  No one should smoke while holding a baby or in a car or the same room as a baby.  Mothers who smoke should time it for after a feeding, not before.


Breastfeeding mothers cannot drink alcohol.

Breastfeeding mothers can have alcoholic beverages occasionally.

Women who abuse alcohol (more than two drinks a day or binge drinkers) should not breastfeed.


Many women do not produce enough milk.

Milk is made whenever milk is removed from the breast.   The more effectively the baby feeds, the more milk the mother will make.  Mothers can exclusively breastfed twins and even triplets.  Mothers naturally produce milk after babies are born and they need confidence in their own bodies.  They also need information and support to manage breastfeeding in the early days.  Small breasts can make enough milk for the baby.  Supply comes from the demand.  There are only two medical circumstances that may result in a woman having a low milk supply (physical anomaly and hormone imbalance).


Some mothers have milk that is not rich enough to satisfy baby.

Human milk has all the calories, nutrients and fats babies need.

Because human milk is so easy to digest and newborn stomachs are so small, newborns feed 10 to 12 times in 24 hours.  Human milk does not and should not look like formula or cow's milk.


Combination feeding ensures the baby is getting enough.

Babies are born to exclusively breastfeed.  Giving formula in normal circumstances in addition to breastfeeding can result in overfeeding, reducing the mother’s milk supply, and increasing all the known risks of formula. 


There is no milk until the third day after delivery.

Milk is already in the breasts when the baby is born.  The first milk is called colostrum (see the next myth).  Colostrum is measured in teaspoons, not ounces.  The breasts are soft in the first few days after delivery so the baby can learn how to breastfeed.


The first milk (colostrum) is bad for the baby.

Colostrum is rich in the nutrients and antibodies essential to newborns.  It is concentrated and helps the baby’s bowels to pass the first stools.  Colostrum is the perfect first food for human newborns. 


Breastfed babies need water bottles.

Human milk is about 87% water, just what a body needs.  Even in the desert, breastfed babies do not need additional water.


Family members should give bottles so they can bond with the baby.

Family and friends can bond with the baby by holding, burping, bathing, talking to and playing with baby.  Bottles can interfere with the establishment of the mother’s milk supply and the baby learning how to breastfeed. 


Breastfeeding makes the baby too dependent on the mother.

Loving, holding, and meeting baby's needs make him feel secure and help him to become independent.  All babies need to develop a strong attachment to one person first before they expand their circle of attachments.


Breastfeeding hurts.

Breastfeeding should not hurt.  It hurts when baby’s jaws close on the nipple.  When correctly positioned, the baby’s tongue covers the lower gum line, and his gums close on the areola (the dark area).  Baby should not have to turn his head to reach the nipple. When done correctly, mother may feel a slight tug. 


Breastfeeding is hard work and makes the mother overly tired.

Just being a mother is tiring and stressful.  Breastfeeding saves work and lets mother rest while feeding her baby.  The breastfeeding hormones make the mother feel peaceful and relaxed.


A mother's milk will go bad if it stays in her breast or if she gets scared or angry.

Human milk is always fresh and cannot spoil in the breast. 

Feelings cannot change the composition of human milk.

If a mother is upset, her milk flow may be slower but the milk is fine.


Pumping is a good way of knowing how much milk the mother has.

Pumping only shows how much milk can be pumped with that particular pump at that time.  Swallowing, wet diapers, frequent stools and weight gain are better guides to baby's intake.


Breastfeeding makes the breasts sag.

Pregnancy, heredity, and aging cause the breasts to sag, not breastfeeding. 


A mother needs to clean her nipples before breastfeeding.

The nipple area has natural protective oils to keep it germ free. 

Both soap and alcohol irritate the nipples and should be avoided.  Mothers only need to rinse the breasts with water once a day.


Breastfeeding causes sexual stimulation.

Breastfeeding is a pleasurable experience but does not cause sexual feelings.


Breastfeeding is natural so there is no need to learn about it.

Breastfeeding is a skill learned by practice.  Mothers are more likely to succeed when they have information, help from others, and support.


All health care providers know a lot about breastfeeding.

Practical aspects of breastfeeding were not always included in medical training.  Health care providers vary greatly in the advice they give on breastfeeding.  Women are encouraged to learn about breastfeeding by reading and attending breastfeeding classes and support groups such as La Leche League of New Jersey.

This is a very helpful post Alicia with some great comments from Dr Bidani. I am really fond of this remedy. With it's themes in mind I find it so often works wonders with women when they become mothers for the first time which throws up all their own issues around their mother IF they experienced a less than ideal mothering themselves. It seems to allow them to let go of that trauma and move forwards "into themselves' and they tend to become confident about their ability to mother their own child. For me it is a remedy that breaks that ongoing cycle that can be caused by childhood trauma related to abandonment and lack of care. Wonderful remedy!

thanks Dr. Bidani for the wonderful insight about Human Milk, adding some of them:

Out of body: Being out of one's body,or ungrounded is common to all the milks. In Lac caninum they feel as if they may be levitating. In Lac Humanum they may be clumsy, make mistakes in speech and writing, be dyslexic, have spatial difficulties, or problems with dimensional awareness. They may not find it easy focusing their minds. This follows from their lack of connection with the world.

Need for structure: They have need to keep their world close to home,in order.Untidiness aggravates them, they need to control their environment. They dream about structures, buildings, and homes; perhaps places of safety. This need for control is a balance to the lack of control in their own bodies.

Alert with Heightened Senses Insticnt v/s domesticity: Being alert and self contained are yet again, attributes for survival. In the proving, senses were heightened and we find that sound may seem too loud. In one case where this remedy was curative, the man felt he could detect the scent of each person he passed. he lost his ability after the remedy, and although it had annoyed him before, he now regrets the loss. Needless to say he was generally very much improved after the remedy. In another case, the client reported a heightened sense of touch for about a week.

Feeling left out-better alone-low confidence: This remedy is so much about "relationship", it is about being able to relate where they can give and receive love. This relating is on a one to one level as well as to a group. They feel left out. They feel they do not belong to the group and this leads to a lack of confidence. Feeling alien in the culture. This is why they are > when they are alone. They are uncomfortable with another. They feel invaded when someone comes into their spaces. In fact they can become very irritable indeed when their spaces is invaded.

Premenstrual Symptoms: Lac Humanum has been curative for quite a few cases involving premenstrual symptoms, where the mental symptoms have been present. There has been great irritability, a feeling of being got at, wanting to be alone, and much worse for company. The menstrual blood is dark and even black, and often scanty.

Stomach symptoms: There may be huge fluctuation in body weight, appetite increased, wantig to snack, feel they could eat a lot, nausea eating, nausea motion, a lot of eructations, bloating and distention, acid risings (hiatus hernia), heartburn, milk tastes of sour (or very sweet), there is an aversion to sour foods, thirst increased, desire for sweet things.


Excelent remedy for eating disorders as well as various addictions, including smoking and the remedy has given good results!

Wonderful Dr. Bidani ~ now I have to memorize this picture. And they love sweets.
Comment by Dr. Navneet Bidani on August 22, 2009 at 12:02pm
Nice Post Alicia but would like to add few more things.

Its always easy to remember a medicine by understanding the theme of a medicine, so would like to narrate the main idea behind the Lac Humanum.

Themes of Lac Humanum
• Sense of isolation
• Responsibility a strong sense of duty
• Am I the baby or the mother?
• Forsaken ; loss of self confidence
• Difficulties in childhood – unable to separate from the mother. “I am still there for my Mother now she shares all her burdens with me.”
• Dependence on the group versus self independence
• “A need to put the world close to home in order;” [Vermeulen] “I am here and my journey in this life is to save my sisters life and to save my Mothers life; to complete the Karmic lesson from the last life; to give myself.”
• Lack of self confidence; she describes herself as; “skinless with no identity of her own.”
• “They have a sense of isolation with the world. They become detached, and have a sort of numbness to life.” [Vermeulen]
• “My survival depends on my ability to get approval. A struggle to live up to expectations. Survival depends on choices made by someone else.” [Notes from a Shah case 2004 that I attended in India.]
• Conflict of the right to exist
• Selfless
• Having a conscience
• Conflict of the right to exist – her empathic somatic sharing of her sisters illness confirms this conflict
• Irritable cursing anger at not being nurtured
• No ego / self/ identity.
Comment by Debby Bruck on August 17, 2009 at 11:20pm
I agree with Dr. Alok that you have provided something to think about regarding Lac Humanum. It sounds like you have used this remedy for many clients each for individual main complaints.
