For any illness afflicting us or our loved ones, we go running off to a doctor or a drugstore for treatment. Not many people look to natural cures and yet nature offers an abundance of them, many of which are far better than anything available in the hospital or drugstore!

This is particularly so when it has to do with substances produced by the human body such as fresh breast milk, a secret of nature our resident health expert, Dr. Laura Zeaman, has been telling us about for some time now.

Well, a Britsh mum of two has now stepped forward to tell the world how she cured her children’s terrible skin conditions just by bathing them in her fresh breast milk!


Fresh Breast Milk To The Rescue

According to 27-year-old Lizzie Dempsey from Southampton, England, she decided to start inter-mixing her fresh breast milk with the warm bath water of her kids to help soothe and heal the ugly dry patches of skin all over their bodies.

Human breast milk in water is an age-old remedy for skin conditions in parts of the Orient.

Her decision came after trying a long list of lotions and creams, none of which worked. On the other hand, the fresh breast milk oozing from her breasts wiped out the symptoms of the skin afflictions of her kids, George, two, and Isla, her nine months old baby.

Supported by her husband, she started giving her kids weekly baths and, get this, she now recommends this method to all mothers as a safe and easy way to cure all skin infections in children.

The Power Of Fresh Breast Milk

According to Lizzie, her first son, George, was born totally healthy in the month of December 2015 but developed some patches of dry skin on his stomach weeks later. At first, she tried to get rid of the problem – later confirmed as eczema – with different types of lotions and creams, but none worked.

And that was how she turned to fellow moms on social media for advice. She’s into Facebook groups and there, found that lots of members had tried fresh breast milk baths. They recommended them to her.

Lizzies say her local midwife suggested it as well and it also kept coming up in searches on the web. She finally made the decision to use the Fresh Brest Milk therapy on George when he was eight weeks old, she gave him his first bath then!



Lizzie says she was surprised at the speed the therapy worked and so she never stopped. It became a weekly routine, bathing her kids in water laced with her own fresh breast milk.

The result?


“It gave them super soft skin each and every time” said Lizzie in awe.
