My verdict… “A great fresh and funky alternative to cows milk, pure and raw – no intervention!”
Do you know someone who suffers from asthma, eczema, or a combination of the two? The cause may be an undiagnosed Cow’s Milk Allergy, or CMA.
According to Alternative Medicine, up to half of all infants may be sensitive to cow’s milk. As a result, symptoms of an underlying milk allergy may start as early as infancy, Furthermore, in addition to asthma and eczema, an underlying milk allergy may manifest as bronchitis, sinusitis, autoimmune disorders, frequent colds and ear infections and even behavioral problems. The combination of these two conditions may indicate a reaction to cow’s milk.
Dr. Frank Oski, the chief of pediatrics at the John Hopkins School of Medicine, believes that fifty percent of all schoolchildren may be allergic to cow’s milk, though many of them remain undiagnosed. At the same time, many other doctors and researchers are now beginning to feel that undiagnosed milk allergies may be the underlying problem behind the link between milk and asthma. The good news is there is a great alternative! Raw goat’s milk can offer an non-allergenic alternative to cow’s milk. According to the GABRIELA Study, a comprehensive EU study performed in 2011 involving over 8000 school-aged children, raw farm milk was effective at actually preventing childhood asthma and hay fever.
Goat’s milk contains only tiny trace amounts of the allergenic casein protein, found in cow’s milk. Goat’s milk casein is more similar to human milk, making it far more easily tolerated.
Dr. Natasha Campbell McBride author and creator of the GAPS diet, often prescribes raw goats milk for her patients. She recommends a pasture-fed, free-ranging raw goats milk supplier and indeed she recommends Chuckling Goat, a family farm based in Wales.
Chuckling Goat can deliver their raw goats milk products anywhere in the UK.
