Recently, a video of a yogi preaching about menstruating women was doing rounds on the Internet. In the disgusting video, the yogi could be seen saying:
“A menstruating woman who cooks food for her husband will certainly be reborn as ‘kutri’ (bitch).”
And according to him, people who eat food prepared by menstruating women will be born as oxen.
While many on the internet were struggling with it, now a video clip of Sadhguru has surfaced, where he can be heard sharing his bizarre theory about lactating mothers.
In a controversial video, Sadhguru can be seen talking about how a mother produces different “types of milk” from each breast if she gives birth to opposite-sex twins. The video has gone viral among Indian tweeps.
The Isha Foundation founder can be seen saying in the video,
“If a woman delivers a male child, the quality of the milk that she produces is in a certain way. If she delivers a female child the quality of the milk is totally different. If she delivers twins, one male and one female, one breast will ‘ooze’ a certain type of milk, another breast will ooze another kind of milk. This is the level of intelligence invested in this body.”
Without any scientific concrete proof, it is disheartening to see how these self-proclaimed Gurus with an enormous fan following shows complete lack of discretion on what information needs to be shared on the public forums.
Here’s what netizens had to say on Sadhguru’s breastfeeding theory:

And how would the poor mum know which breast is for which twin? Do the twins come with a manual ?
And is the milk identical for identical twins ?? So many questions Sadhguru!!@SadhguruJV https://t.co/qfUEi9BkXQ

Sadhguru says that if a women delivers twins a boy and a girl her both breasts produces diff kind of milk. 1 suitable for girl and 1 for boy child.
But how to know which breast milk is for boy and which for girl?
He didn’t cleared that up.

Sadhguru’s breast milk theory is mind-boggling. I wonder if there is a business model in all of this.

At IFORHER, we feel it is more important than ever that we bust the myths surrounding breastfeeding and menstruation through scientific facts. We would request these Gurus to leave these topics for the experts to handle. People with half-baked knowledge need to stay away from these important topics as their involvement could be very dangerous for our patriarchal society.
