Raw Milk is the Best Real Milk
My friend at Foggy Bottom Farms, John Langlois, once told me
"If I had a dollar for every time I have seen a frown when I mentioned drinking fresh milk to one of my friends, I would be wealthy. Rarely have they ever tried it. Most have assimilated a profound prejudice against it because of what they were taught in school about the "benefits of pasteurization". That idea, compounded by the daily germophobic assaults from products like Lysol, have them living in terror that they may somehow come in contact with deadly pathogens."
"Therefore, our first challenge is to help you understand that life is filled with "good bacteria". Yes, good guys. Helpful little critters. You need them. They live inside you."
"In fact, if your body ever killed off all the microscopic creatures that you have a symbiotic relationship with, you would die."
"From time to time, we need our food to replenish those bacteria. This lesson was brought home to me in a startling fashion when my grandson's digestive system failed to work properly shortly after his birth. The allopathic doctor said "give him antibiotics" (That must be a mantra of theirs.)
My alternative doctor said, "Give him a few rounds of Acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium longum, Intestinal Flora, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei, and Saccharomyces boulardii." After 20 minutes with a dictionary I found all those critters in a form we could put in his bottled breast milk. Within two days his stools were normal and I was on a new path of discovery."
Through the work of the Weston A. Price foundation, we discovered that properly collected fresh milk from properly maintained cows was better for me per Dr. Mercola and less likely to make me sick than pasteurized milk. The fact that it was NOT homogenized was an added health bonus.
