Due to these concerns researched I decided to get off dairy and never looked back! It has really helped with the healing of MS and I am grateful for the knowledge. Some researchers and scientists are looking into dairy around the world as they are finding it can cause lots of health issues. They tell us:-
The majority of humans naturally stop producing significant amounts of lactase — the enzyme needed to properly metabolize lactose, the sugar in milk — sometime between the ages of two and five.
Our human bodies just weren’t made to digest cow’s milk, calves are.
Instead, some scientists agree that it’s better for us to get calcium, potassium, protein, and fats from other food sources, like whole plant foods — vegetables, fruits, beans, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and seaweed.
Some Pesticides in cow feed find their way into milk and dairy products that we consume. When the milk is pasteurised some of the nutrients are also destroyed. Pasteurising is when they heat up the milk to destroy the toxic chemicals like antibiotics for example but some get through. They say not enough to hurt humans but how do they know?
Any little bit of toxic chemicals over time can harm us
I also researched that there’s no evidence that dairy is good for your bones or prevents osteoporosis — in the countries where the most dairy is consumed the researchers say they have the most osteoporosis. Dairy is acid forming in the body like meat and processed sugars, which causes major health problems and also makes your bones fragile.
They say that Dairy causes digestive problems and lactose intolerance. It is linked to prostate problems, and causes irritable bowel syndromes. Research also reads when people have cut out dairy they have got rid of migraines, infections, behavioural issues and sinus problems.
Stopping dairy certainly improved my health with Multiple Sclerosis
If you go Raw or Organic with dairy just remember human metabolism is not equipped for this. I don’t have Soy milk either as some doubts on health issues when consumed so I choose not to have it.
Mash or use a hand blender with a raw egg in cooked potatoes and they come out creamy, tasting great. Keep the skin on potatoes scrubbed or go organic, when cooking as they have lots of nutrients and more flavour. There are many recipes created with no dairy online and in recipe books, I also have created many in my new book out soon and on this website, link below.
For milk instead of dairy I use Organic Almond, Rice, Coconut & Oats milk
I am grateful for finding out the dairy concerns, as stopping it aided in giving improvements with all the MS symptoms.
