Publication History

Publication Date:

While Lac maternum and Lac humanum have many similarities (as one would expect since they both contain mature human milk) they are essentially different, although complementary medicines. Lac-m also contains colostrum and it is this which affords the connection with in-carn-ation issues often as a consequence of birth trauma or damage done to the vital force through vaccination or drug abuse. It is this which constitutes the primary aetiology for the lac-m state while it is a perceived lack of a suitable length of time spent at the maternal breast that forms the basis for the lac-h state.
