The controversial subject of vitamin K was revived after the heroic action of the parents who escaped from the hospital in Bialogard.
The parents did not agree to the vaccinations, the perinatal procedures and the injection of vitamin K in the form of Vitacon.
This drug contains dangerous substances for newborns and should have been removed … two years ago.
First of all, for the absorption of vitamin K, a human being needs a well-functioning pancreas and bile ducts.
The child’s digestive system is not fully developed at birth and; therefore, people give breast milk to the babies (and postpone the solid food) until they are at least 6 months old and therefore mother’s milk contains only a small amount of vitamin K.
Too high amounts of vitamin K may overload the liver and cause brain damage (among many others) …
Secondly, the blood from the umbilical cord contains stem cells that protect the child from exsanguination and perform all kinds of repairs needed inside the baby’s body.
And here is the catch – in order for the child to get this protective stem cell, the cutting of the umbilical cord should be delayed and the blood must remain thin so that the stem cells can move easily and do their job.
Imagine that your child has its own protective mechanism that prevents bleeding and repairs organs …
Thirdly, the newborn baby may have low levels of vitamin K, because his intestines are not yet inhabited by the bacteria needed to synthesize it, and the “vitamin K cycle” is not yet fully functional in newborns.
What is the point of injecting vitamin K directly into your muscles?
Kidneys are also not fully functioning …
And finally, several clinical observations confirm the hypothesis that children have natural protective mechanisms that justify their low level of vitamin K after birth (…)
When the child’s blood is thickened with vitamin K, it causes a situation where stem cells have to paddle through this mud (…) Perhaps one day, the doctors will realize that stem cells from umbilical cord blood are not only important and useful for a newborn baby, but also that there is a reason why they require an environment of thinner blood in order to work.
Any newborn is squeezed like a wet towel during the narrow birth through the birth canal and can suffer damage to any part of the body, including the brain, so it needs some built-in “repair mechanism”.
And the stem cells are able to go through the blood-brain barrier.
What’s more, stem cells can get … everywhere!!!
But … pediatricians consider this to be a “defect”, so they want to give vitamin K injections, which lead to the thickening of the blood to a level almost 100 times higher than in adults.
Those vitamin K injections, as they say, are necessary because the baby has not been “designed” properly and if you do not give it the injection, this child “can bleed out to death”.
So why are blood clotting factors in infants low in the first few days after birth?
Why does a child have a lot of thinner blood, as a result?
Isn’t it a logical hypothesis that thinner blood allows easier and faster access of umbilical cord blood stem cells to get to any part of the body that was damaged during the labor?
Lecture with Dr. Suzanne Humphries
Recent evidence has confirmed the toxic effects of excessive amounts of synthetic vitamin K administered to young newborns and premature babies.
It was also observed that the administration of large amounts of analogous vitamin K to the mother shortly before delivery causes an increase in the serum bilirubin concentration of the newborn.
Synthetic vitamin K, formerly regarded as harmless, is dangerous when administered in large quantities to mothers shortly before delivery; therefore, much lower doses are currently used. Naturally occurring vitamin K has no negative effects. –

In the study “Vitamin K prophylaxis for premature infants: 1 mg versus 0.5 mg” it was confirmed that after giving to the newborn/infant vitamin K intramuscularly or intravenously, overdose occurs up to about 260000% (in words: 260,000 percent !!!) in relation to the norm for an adult.
This was indicated by the tests performed on preterm infants, which are the main group at risk of VKDB – vitamin K levels were 1,900 to 2,600 times exceeded in 2 days after receiving the injection, and from 550 to 600 times exceeded in the study 10 days after the injection. –

Excess of vitamin K may cause breakdown of red blood cells, anemia, excessive secretion of sweat, the feeling of heat, and in babies, in particular, jaundice (physiological) and damage to the brain tissue.
Vitamin K controversy
Dr. Cees Vermeer is a biochemist at the University of Maastricht (Netherlands), and a recognized expert in the field of vitamin K and its effects on the body.
According to dr. Cees Vermeer: “vitamin K injections are completely unnecessary for the newborns”. The forces of nature are focused on a successful birth so much that it seems unlikely that all infants would be vitamin k deficient.
As for me, instead of just accepting that nature has made a mistake, I have considered all the ways in which the normal physiological birth process interferes with perinatal interventions that affect blood coagulation.
The most obvious intervention that interferes with this mechanism is the premature cutting of the umbilical cord, which deprives the newborn from 25% to 40% of the volume of physiological blood, that is of 25% to 40% of ways of preventing physiological clotting factors planned by nature.
As a puncturer – for screening tests – of the newborn heel, which did not have prematurely cut off the umbilical cord (and which, moreover, in some cases, did not receive artificial vitamin K), I can say that such children have no trouble with blood clotting.
This solves the problem of early or classic fetal/neonatal hemorrhagic disease.
Although vitamin K does not penetrate easily from the bloodstream of the mother through the placenta to the newborn, it IS easily transferred to the baby with breast milk. (Does not this clearly indicate that nature, in fact, seems to protect the child by regulating clotting factors in a specific way?).
Women who consume a lot of fresh green leafy vegetables pass vitamin K to their children, which protects them from the late onset of hemorrhagic disease.
So maybe nature knows what it’s doing, and we just have to support physiological health by waiting at least 5 minutes after birth before we cut off the umbilical cord, and encouraging nursing mothers to eat large amounts of fresh green leafy vegetables.
