5 Compelling Reasons Why You Should Eliminate Dairy From Your Family's Diet

5 Compelling Reasons
Why You Should Eliminate Dairy From Your Family's Diet

Our daughter went through 4 months on an antibiotic when she was one year old for a constant ear infection. Every time we tried to take her off the medicine, her ear would flare up again. My doctor didn't seem to think it was a problem, but common sense told me that noone should be on antibiotics for that long.

I began to search out answers as to why she seemed so prone to ear infections and one day stumbled in a small health food shop desperate for help. The sweet lady behind the counter helped with a few products, but the most important thing that she did was to suggest that I take Dulce off of all dairy products.

I was skeptical, but desperate. So, we did it! We got rid of all milk/dairy products from our house. And, guess what - the ear infections stopped. And, so did my husbands sinus drainage and my uncomfortable tummy. Wow, I was shocked.

That was 16 years ago and have learned even more since then. I rarely ever have dairy products in my house. And, if I do they are always organic. So, here are my 5 compelling reasons why you should eliminate dairy from your family's diet:

1. Humans are the only animals on earth that drink the milk of another species. And, animals stop drinking mother's milk once they are weaned. That's just YUK, if you think about it!

2. Lactose intolerance is the most common food intolerance in the United States, affecting as many as 30% of adult Americans. Milk lactose is many times a hidden culprit in all types of processed foods. And, symptoms of your sensitivity may not show up for 30 minutes to 2 days, which makes it difficult to pinpoint as the problem.

3. There are about a dozen pesticides that are routinely found in non-organic cow's milk. The source of the pesticides, of course, is the food that the cows were given to eat. Do you want your children drinking pesticides?

4. Also commonly found are hormonal residues from hormones that were given to the cows prior to milking, as well as antibiotics. Have you ever wondered why kids today seem to develop so much quicker and larger than we did. They have steadily been eating and drinks growth hormones in their beef, dairy and poultry products for years. So, now we just grow 'em bigger!

5. Finally, from cow's milk products like cheese, cream, or butter packaged in plastic containers, residues of the plastic itself are found in the dairy products. These residues are called packaging migrants, and they include the substances DEHP and DEHA (diethylhexyl phthalate and diethylhezyl adipate). So, even if you don't have an intolerance to cow's milk, you could to the plastic residues. Now that's a double YUK!

So, what do I suggest. In our house we use rice milk, almond milk, coconut milk, and mimiccreme to replace cow's milk. If we do need to use yogurt or something like that then we always use organic. And to substitue for butter, we use ghee. Check out my video on how to make gourmet ghee for yourself. It is super easy and super good.

Take the challenge and remove dairy from your diet for just two weeks and I bet you will see a difference how you fell. Let me hear from you.. I would love to know how it goes for you.

What is all the news about Celiac

What is all the news about Celiac

Disease
[CD]. Two of my co-workers have just

been diagnosed with CD. So I wanted to
diagnosed
find out what this disease is all about.

Gluten is the common name for the protiens

in specific grains. Wheat,which includes

durum, semolina, spelt, kamut, einkorn and

faro} rye, barley and triticale. These

grains must be eliminated
from the diet of

those with CD.

CD is a digestive

disorder that affect children and adults.

When the gluten is consumed it creates an

immune-mediated toxic reaction that does

not allow food to be properly absorbed

even in small amounts. Gluten can cause

health problems and may damage the small

intestine
with no symptoms.

When gluten is removed from the diet the

intestine will start to improve.

Reading labels is the an important step to

learning which foods can be eaten. Some of

the harmful ingredients are unidentified

starch, malt,extenders, modified food

starch
, binders, and fillers. This is

really about lifestyle change.

One of the most common complications of CD

is Osteoporosis.

So what can a person to eat? Here is an

example;brown rice, quinoa, very high in

protein and buckwheat. I came across a

whole section in my local grocery store

that had these special items. Also in my

research I came across Bob's Red Mill

products. Here are some of the gluten-free

items he has.

Gluten Free Oats,Signature Gluten Free,

Gluten Free Flours,and meals Gluten Free

Cereals,Gluten Free Entrees,Gluten Free

Mixes,Gluten Free Grains, Beans, and

Seeds, Gluten Free Baking Aids.
I know it has been a life change and

adjustment for my co-workers but they have

adjusted and are feeling much better since

they have gone gluten-free.
