9. Food for thought for the expectant mother

I get many questions from expecting mothers asking what they should do to make sure their child doesn’t get AD as well. One of the causes of AD has to do with DNA, so it is hard to prevent in that aspect. However, as I have mentioned in the beginning, the primary cause of AD is accumulated arachidonic acid in the cell membrane, and if you prevent that from happening, you could do your part in changing your baby’s body composition so that he or she won’t develop AD as easily. Consequently, I recommend pregnant and nursing mothers to eat Japanese food as much as they can. It is too late to suddenly change your diet in the later stages of your pregnance. If you are trying to conceive, start adopting a Japanese as soon as you can.

One theory that is getting recognition, published by David Parker, a professor at England’s South Hamptom University, regards unborn babies developing lifestyle-related diseases. Parker epidemiologically proved that an unborn baby’s environment (the mother’s uterus) can cause problems later on such as heart-related diseases, diabetes, and stroke. When a graph of heart diseases in England and Wales were compared, it was found that the chance of developing heart diseases correlated to neonatal deaths, which lead to the formulation of this theory. Although AD is not such a disease as diabetes, heart disease and stroke, it is affected by the mother’s diet and nutritional intake while the child was in his or her mother’s womb. After 4 to 7 weeks since viviparity, the organs pertaining to the immune system are formed. Consequently, the first two months of pregnancy are very important, and no matter how much you hate sypplements, you must take the vitamins and minerals set forth in Section 9 “Important Supplements” except bladderwrack, moringa, vitamin B6.

Another question is whether pregnant women can use steroidal ointments. I have written in the beginning how taking steroids orally and using steroid ointment are two completely different things. As a result, steroidal ointment use will not have any effects on the baby. Also, as far as I know through my personal experience, I have not heard or seen any cases where a pregnant mother with AD lost her child or gave birth to a malformed child due to steroidal ointment use. However a research conducted by doctor Tsunetoshi Shimazu, who works at the allergy department of Shimazu Hospital, and doctor Norihide Yamaguchi, who works at the Keimeikan Clinic, which observed the gender of the babies whom their mother took topical hormones, revealed that out of the 45 babies, only three were boys (one of which was a stillborn), and the other 42 were girls. Clearly, the number of girls greatly outnumbers the number of boys.

The two doctors have a cautious attitude and have not jump to conclusions based on only 45 examples, which hardly enough. However, since the ratio of boys to girls is not 20:25, but is 3:42, we can estimate that using steroids does have an effect. As a result, especially during the first months of pregnancy (which includes a couple of months before you get pregnant), pregnant women should avoid using steroidal ointments. Even if they are going to use it, they should stick to weak ones.
