Borax

Another feature. Many times I have used Borax when the mother could not nurse the child; she talks about always having a little, thick milk.

“The milk is too thick and tastes badly.”

This condition of the milk prevents the mother from nursing her child. This is a constitutional state, and Borax, if given in the beginning of pregnancy, to a Borax patient will so change the milk as well as the rest of the constitution that the mother will be able to nurse the child.

I have a number of times, when a mother has brought forth several children that she was unable to nurse, given Borax and it has so affected the case that she could nurse the next child.
