I'll be the first to tell you that I was wrong. So very wrong. Let me tell you why. For many years I believed that milk was so bad for you. It was inflammatory to our bodies. It is not natural for any animal to drink milk after early childhood. It is cruel to the cows.
My new belief
How can anything bad come from something so cute? Right?
I think just like anything man gets his hands on, milk can be ruined. Let's leave it alone in its natural state and maybe it's not so bad. Maybe it is even a really great thing.
Many years ago, I had a patient tell me that his allergies were helped by raw milk. I was intrigued but not enough to try it. I heard about it again from another client years later. All the while, I was also hearing the negatives of milk. So I still didn't give it chance.
Why the heck did i wait so long?
About 2 months ago, I went to a local dairy farm and bought 3 gallons of raw milk. I wasn't sure what to expect. The taste was great. I also found that I felt better about myself in just choosing to get the milk from a cow in the pasture and not a "prison".
So what happened next you ask?
I have horrible allergies in the spring. Usually starting in March, I will keep my windows and doors shut. I almost always have to fight off a sinus infection.
NOTHING has EVER helped!
I did not have any allergies this spring. I mean zilch, zero, nada.
I have even been able to let my cat sit in my lap without sneezing.
milk cured my allergies
That's all I have to say. Believe me or not. Try it or not. But I would recommend giving it a try. It sure won't hurt.
