I work at a major metropolitan hospital and we get some seriously sick people at our facility because it is so large. Frequently, I administer tube feedings when people are unable to eat from either trauma, coma, mechanical ventilation, or severe malnourishment. I struggle with administering these tube feedings because of what is in them. They smell awful, look like diarrhea (and frequently cause diarrhea), are highly processed, and are basically made up of various corn derivatives. I have often contemplated coming up with my own formulary made from whole food.

One Mom took matters into her own hands when her son began requiring tube feedings. Her story brings tears to my eyes, tears of joy! I am so proud of what she is doing that I just had to share it with you.

Note: I am not receiving any compensation for putting this blog post out there. I just want to get the word out because I think her work is extremely important and I am appreciative of what she has done!

What would you do if your child became ill and required tube feedings to keep them alive? What would you do if those tube feedings, that were supposed to be making your child better, were actually making them even sicker? This is exactly what happened to this Mom  and she decided to step outside of her MD’s advice and take her child’s health into her own hands.

The following information was put together by this wonderful Mama. PLEASE support her cause and visit this page: CLICK HERE. Thank you!
