Today my home is completely dairy-free and there is a reason for that; it is a positive one and one that has changed my life around. I used to suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and sought out treatment after treatment until I was advised by a healer to begin eliminating dairy from my diet and go in search of a substitute that would give me the nutrients and all the good calcium I was lacking. The day that I stopped consuming dairy is the day that I got my life and health back. If you don’t believe my reasons, take a look at a few accounts where milk has done more harm than good.
Miranda Barzey, wrote an entrance in the “Modern Paleo: The blog” about the day she cut out dairy from her diet and the wonders it did to heal her eczema. Dr. Mark Hyman, an American physician and author focuses on the truth about dairy and what many of us may have not known. A few facts he mentions is that dairy may actually increase fractures in the body. He also mentions that countries with the lowest rates of dairy and calcium consumption (like those in Africa and Asia) have the lowest rates of osteoporosis. He goes into detail in his blog post.
According to Baseline of Health Foundation, removing dairy from the diet has been shown to shrink enlarged tonsils and adenoids, indicating relief for the immune system by reducing Circulating Immune Complexes. This would be a preventative measure for going under surgery.
The elimination of dairy has personally improved my way of life. Today both my children and me are living a healthier lifestyle with dairy substitutes and getting all the calcium we need from products such as almond milk, coconut milk, and many other non-dairy and vegan products.
Let me know what you think and if you believe this is the best lifestyle to adapt to.
Have a beautiful weekend everyone!!
