Dairy doesn’t seem as popular as it was in previous generations. I love cheese and a good quality natural yoghurt! Milk of any species is a special food, the primary food of all mammals. Cow’s milk doesn’t suit my family which we discovered when they were babies. Thankfully, for our other babies, we wised up and drastically reduced the amount of milk they drank. There are many other real foods that provide adequate amounts of calcium for children.
Milk is energetically a building food and when not pasteurised or homogenised is neutrally balancing for your bodies pH. Human beings are the only human that continue to drink the milk of other species. Raw unpasteurized milk is a complete protein, high in tryptophan, calcium rich, contains good amounts vitamins and minerals. Raw milk is easier to digest than processed milk.
Cow’s milk is mucus forming which increases a runny nose, middle ear infections and wheezing. Cows milk is a contributory factor to many health conditions including; candida, reproductive system problems, headaches, migraines, leaky gut, bloating, flatulence, diarrhoea and constipation.
Goats eat mineral rich foods such as berries, herbs, bushes etc. I love goats milk because it is high in protein, minerals, fluoride, silica calcium and magnesium. Goats milk contains small fat globules so easier to digest than cows milk. Alkaline on pH balance (when not pasteurised). Nutritionally goats milk is the closest milk composition to mother’s milk, a good brain food and is non-mucous forming.
Yoghurt may promote longevity and a healthy intestinal tract. Culturing (fermenting) restores many of the enzymes destroyed during pasteurisation. This includes lactase, which helps digest lactose and numerous enzymes which help the body absorb calcium and other minerals. Yoghurt is rich in friendly bacteria, esp lactobacillus and bifidus, prevents vaginal yeast infection (thrush) and candida. Read labels carefully as some yoghurts contain high amounts of sugar, honey, colours, flavours, fillers, additives. Best to buy organic or biodynamic plain yoghurt and then add your own fruits.
Contains high amounts of protein, calcium, vitamin A, and other vitamins and minerals. Some processed cheeses are high in saturated fats, added salt, colouring, additives and synthetic vitamins. A small amount is healthy and nutritious, unless intolerant. Hard naturally fermented cheeses (Parmesan, Romano, Cheddar, Gruyere) are easier to digest.
