RAW MILK ~
Why I Drink it!
Politics invaded our food court a long time ago and one of the casualties was raw milk. Lucky for us in Massachusetts we can legally buy this previously outlawed whole food from local farms.
I cannot drink "regular" milk - homogenized, pasteurized, etc. Until I figured out I was lactose intolerant I would end up on the bathroom floor in a cold sweat after having the tiniest sip of milk from the grocery store. Since this was not my idea of a good time I cut out all dairy from my diet. But my bones were growing brittle, despite the Cal/mag supplements, leafy greens and other additions to my diet.
I decided to be brave and try raw milk from a farm in the hilltowns. I brought 1/2 gallon in a glass jar home and drank a glass. What the heck? What's one more night on a cold tile floor? But, amazingly, that didn't happen. I went on with my day and slept through the night - no pain, not even a twinge. Three months later I went back to get a bone scan
and lo and behold, guess what? My bones were getting denser and healthier! The doctor couldn't believe it and when I told him all I had been doing was drinking raw milk, I though he was going to go through the ceiling. "You can get sick from that!" he exclaimed. But I have never gotten sick from raw milk - now a year later I continue to enjoy raw milk and better health. For those interested in more information there is an excellent book available: Raw Milk, the Untold Story
Until next time~ bottoms up!
