Interviewer: Back to infants. Is there a marked difference, just speaking in general terms, between an infant that did not receive colostrum and one that did when they were first born? Later in life as they develop?
 
Dr. Andrew Keech: Well look at it this way. If you're a baby that's just been born and never got colostrum the signals never been made that you have to develop your own immune system. If you look at it in that sense. And I know that there have been cases in third world cases that kids haven't got colostrum. And really are immune compromised and are sick all the time, you know? It's just recommended. CDC says it, doctors say it, everybody in the world says it. Look, you've got to heal the gut. And for a baby there's no difference. You've got to take your mother's colostrum. At least try to get some colostrum from the mother in the baby as soon as possible. It's really important.

Typically if a baby does not get the colostrum from the mother it will not thrive. And we see that in the third world countries. Look at things basically. You know, colostrum was made for you, right? You should take it. And I think the message is as well, not only just healing the gut but understand what the immune system is and how important it is for us as we go through our lives. I mean, look at this example.
I don't want to be morbid, but when we die look how fast our bodies decay because we no longer have an immune system. That's how important our immune system is to keep us protected. And if we don't look after our immune system we're going to be sick. We're going to have symptoms. We're going to be on medications. And those cause other issues as well. Not only increased gut permeability from these medications which we do have to try to heal. But just step back and try to take a natural approach.

Colostrum's been around for so long. It's not the new thing. It's been newly discovered. Back 50 years ago people used to take colostrum because it was in the medications that were available right there now. But it's kind of coming back full circle again and people are realizing, in fact, medical doctors are realizing that it's so important to heal the gut. And that is a common message now because we are noticing there are so many more people suffering from auto-immune diseases and food allergies.

People have no option anymore. They're sick all the time and they don't know why. Their doctors don't even know why. Well because you are allowing foods, undigested foods, bacteria, etc. to go into the body. Because the gut of our small intestine is like the skin. It's a barrier. It's the first layer of our immune defense. And if you have scars on your skin you're allowing bacteria to enter into your body.
Same in the gut. You've got to heal the gut surface. Allow micro molecules to get absorbed from those specific areas that they allow under the light and keep out the bacteria and the larger food molecules. So the key is and I just keep harping on it. Heal the gut. And I sound like a broken record but it's that simple. Do that and you've going to eliminate a lot of your health issues.

Many infants are never breast fed. But is there a difference in the long-term health of those people versus those who were breast fed and received colostrum? Dr. Andrew Keech discusses the benefits of colostrum during the first few days of life and what missing out on that might result in later in life.
