Honestly, some relics of the past need to be brought back to life.
I was just thinking of how an adult breastfeeding hospital, even in 2021, could be a viable option for those suffering from chronic illnesses treatable with breast milk.
Consider this previously quoted line:
“Historically, women have breastfed adults who were sickly to help build their immune systems. The practice has continued more recently than you might realize in countries such as China.”
Breast milk is known to help fight cancer, and to contain other health-boosting ingredients. So we could resurrect the practice of nursing the deathly sick, in very professional, well-monitored healthcare settings.
I picture each adult nursing hospital being equipped with cameras to prevent any hanky-panky and patients signing statements of abstention from all touching below the waist, though patients who are sick and dying probably won’t care for sexual engagement. Moreover, the hospitals would employ only highly professional staff, with wet nurses screened for optimal health. All patients would be well-vetted, with their severe illnesses verified prior to acceptance.
Medical wet nursing is an act of service of the past whose resurrection would greatly benefit modern society.
Stop drinking only water, and use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses.
