"The human physiology is part of the cosmic physiology. Every rhythm of the universe therefore naturally has an effect on the individual and vice versa." - Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

On March 1 2013, the journal Academic Pediatrics included a which demonstrated a link between bedwetting (enuresis) and Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Doctors at the Children's Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati, Ohio studied 358 children diagnosed with ADHD and 729 non-ADHD control subjects and concluded: "Children with ADHD were 2.1 times more likely to meet criteria for enuresis." 

One out of seven children over the age of three continue to wet their beds until reaching puberty, and dairy consumption may be the key to both cause and cure.

Bed-wetting, or enuresis affects an estimated 7 million children over the age of five. There is a strong correlation between bed wetting and milk consumption. There is also that same correlation between the consumption of milk and dairy products (which naturally contain an opiate, casomorphin) and the exploding trend of children diagnosed with ADHD.

If you know a child who suffers from bedwetting or ADHD, please share the following with his or her parents: "Eliminate all dairy products and gluten containing grains..." http://tinyurl.com/3dqun

In 2013, an estimated twenty percent of American children will have some form of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). Studies in the Journal of Autism have linked ADD with a milk protein, casomorphin.

Ten pounds of milk are required to produce one pound of hard cheese. The levels of casomorphin become concentrated as milk is converted to cheese. During the 1970s, 100 pounds of milk were required to produce the ten pounds of cheese consumed by the average American child. Some children were adversely affected and diagnosed with autism.

In 2013, 400+ pounds of milk will be concentrated into the 40 pounds of cheese consumed by the average child. The number of kids diagnosed with autism has subsequently soared by a factor of forty times since 1970.

Florida researcher, Robert Cade, M.D., and his colleagues have confirmed that casomorphine from milk and cheese is the probable cause of attention deficit disorder and autism. They found Beta-casomorphin-7 in high concentrations in the blood and urine of patients with autism. (AUTISM, 1999, 3)

Eighty percent of cow's milk protein is casein. It has been documented that casein breaks down in the stomach to produce a peptide casomorphine, an opiate. (Panksepp, J., Trends in Neuroscience, 1979, 2)

A third scientist produced evidence of elevated levels of endorphin-like substances in the cerebro-spinal fluid of people with autism. (Gillberg, C. (1988) Aspects of Autism: Biological Research Gaskell:London, pp. 31-37)

For children with autism, dairy products may very well be the major factor. The proper therapy for these kids is Notmilk!

"Parents should early seek to interest their children in the study of physiology and should teach them its simpler principles. Teach them how best to preserve the physical, mental, and spiritual powers." - Ellen G. White (Ministry of Healing, page 385)
