A friend of mine sent me this picture he took 1 hour before Costco opened this morning following President Trump's recent announcement of suspending travel to Europe. To put this in perspective, Idaho (where this was taken) has yet to have a confirmed case of Coronavirus. It is amazing to see the reactions we exhibit in preparing for an unknown event.
A new mother once called me after a conversation with her sister, who was a patient in my office. Her sister had seen me adjusting an infant and had mentioned this to her. Her baby was not eating and the doctors were considering putting her daughter on Prilosec for acid reflux. While I am fairly confident that killing the stomach acid of an infant will be effective in removing the symptoms, the question still remains: “Is it healthy to do so?” Stomach acid is required to absorb important nutrients.
