The last time I drank milk was nearly 7 years ago and that was soy milk. I’ve not had cow’s milk for over 9 years now. So what made me give it up? I will keep this as brief as possible. But first of all the reason I swapped cow’s milk for soy milk in the first place was because I believed the hype that soy milk was a healthier alternative to cow’s milk. It wasn’t until I did my own research that I discovered that commercially available soy could be detrimental to health. I’ll talk about soy at a later date.
Pasteurised milk on the other hand has no health benefits whatsoever, its nutritionally pointless and stressful to the body. The pasteurisation process heats the milk up and destroys all the good stuff. These include microorganisms, good bacteria and live enzymes including phosphatase, which allows you to absorb the calcium from the milk. Vitamins are destroyed and also the structure of the milk proteins.
This comes from cow’s that are fed unnatural diets and injected with antibiotics and growth hormones to keep them producing high amounts of milk.
Without the enzymes present to digest the milk it isn’t surprising that most people find it difficult to digest and react to it. This is regardless whether the milk is organic or not.
The questions you need to ask yourself are do I need to consume something from an animal fed an unnatural diet and injected with antibiotics and growth hormones?
Is there a point consuming something that my body can’t digest especially if it’s nutritionally dead?
And finally is it worth risking my health by consuming something with a high probability of reacting to it?
If you’re not convinced try-eliminating milk from your diet for a few days to see if your common ailments improve.
The choice is yours!
