Family 2BPics2 002 How Raw Milk Healed Jane

By Claire
In All Our Ways 

Well, here goes a highly controversial topic that I don’t claim to be an expert on.  Which is why I’m not going to get into the debate here.  You can research for yourself the pros and cons and decide what is best for your family.

But first….what in the world is raw milk??

Raw milk is simply milk that comes straight from the cow….unpasteurized, delicious, real milk.

So this is our story.

Through God’s providence I met my now dear friend Autumn at HEB one day.  Not only did Autumn and her family introduce us to their church, but also to raw milk. (Autumn knows ALL about cloth diapers and writes here.)

Up until this point Jane was still having bowel problems that required her to have a laxative daily.  I posted about her problem here.  And although I was glad the laxatives were helping, I wasn’t happy that she had to take it everyday and was praying for a better alternative….for healing.

After talking to our friends about the incredible benefits of raw milk, we decided to do a little research.

We looked at both sides of the controversial spectrum.  The FDA claims all kinds of dangers with raw milk, and so we looked into those dangers, and discovered lunch meat is has some of the same dangers too, but it’s not illegal.
We also found this statement to be questionable:

  • Pasteurization DOES NOT reduce milk’s nutritional value.
Really? It doesn’t? Hmmm…because all the other research on the other side contradicts that statement.

Anyways like I said I’m not an expert but it seems to me that there are alot of people who feel differently. Not that that means anything, but its worth looking into wouldn’t you say?

Another good resource is www.realmilk.com.

We watched the video on this page. It’s long but very educational.

We realized people have been drinking raw milk for ages. It has even been used as medicine to HEAL people, and that is a whole food. Why do I feel as if a veil has been lifted from my eyes?

About 2 months ago our whole family switched to raw milk. And the results?

For Jane…NO MORE LAXATIVES! In fact she very successfully poos her diapers like a normal baby should.

We now do our milk deals every Wednesday. As in, we meet the farmer and his refrigerated truck every week in a gas station parking lot along with a handful of other crazy folks. I give him my money and he gives me my milk. It kind of feels like a drug deal every time! haha. But the great thing is that it is the exact opposite! I thank God for the freedom we have in Texas to purchase this liquid gold, and the opportunity to support a local farmer who takes care of his animals the humane way.

Because there is a difference between raw milk that comes from healthy grass fed cows, and raw milk that comes from a cow from a dairy factory. Have you been to a dairy factory?

I know have and you can smell the stench from miles away. Would I want to drink that raw milk? No. Is there a reason they pasteurize that milk? Of course.

I would strongly suggest if you go the raw milk route to know where you are getting it from. Know the farmer. Does he take care of his cows? Is he clean in all his handling of the milk? Visit the farm if possible.
It would be unwise to drink raw milk from any old cow.

So, is there a risk when drinking raw milk. Yes. There is also a risk when eating a fast food hamburger, eating a turkey sandwich, eating spinach, driving in my car, and the list can go on.

For our family, it is a risk we are more than willing to take, and for us the benefits outweigh the risks by a long shot. We see it as God’s own creation of a source of food that has the potential to heal.

And my daughter is proof.

Study: Low Salt Intake Associated with High Death Rates

Study: Low Salt Intake Associated with High Death Rates

Pin It

A new article in the New England Journal of Medicine (August 14, 2014) studied the sodium levels in 101,945 persons from 17 countries. The scientists examined the association between sodium excretion and the outcome of death and major cardiovascular events. Sodium excretion correlates directly with sodium ingestion.

This article is another in a long-line of salt articles debunking the myth that we need to lower our salt intake. I have tested thousands of patients for their salt levels. I can assure you that the vast majority of patients are low in salt.

Baking with the Ancient Grain Einkorn

Baking with the Ancient Grain Einkorn

Einkorn is an ancient grain that is not yet commonly known in the western world, but used often in the Mediterranean region and in the mountainous areas of Europe. This grain is slightly finicky, completely delicious, good for you, has a slight yellowish tinge, and smells (and even looks) a little like corn flour.

Because of einkorn’s lower gluten elasticity, the following baking tips will help you bake successfully with einkorn and avoid a lot of frustration.

A Low Carbohydrate Diet Cures Diabetes

Diabetes is the great failure of the medical system. A generation of following the high-carb low-fat USDA approved food pyramid, along with Big Food’s highly processed carbohydrate-rich products, have produced a national epidemic of obesity and diabetes.

The medical system’s answer to type 2 diabetes is drugs. These drugs, however, are highly toxic with serious side effects, and they don’t work. A recent study that showed that insulin may actually accelerate death in type 2 diabetes, for example.

Diabetes, however, is not a condition that is caused by a lack of drugs. Research clearly links type 2 diabetes (and now type 3 diabetes) to insulin resistance caused by excessive carbohydrates in the diet. This issue is finally starting to get more attention in the mainstream media, fortunately.

In a recent article published in the journal Nutrition, the authors showed that there is continued success in using low-carbohydrate diets in the treatment of diabetes and metabolic syndrome.

Food as Medicine: How One Hospital Is Using Organic Produce to Help Heal Patients

Two weeks ago, Rodale Institute, in partnership with the nearby St. Luke’s University Health Network, launched a true farm-to-hospital food program.

The Anderson Campus at St. Luke’s has more than 300 acres of farmland, much of which had historically been farmed conventionally to raise crops like corn and soy. The hospital administration recognized the impact that providing fresh, local organic produce could have on patient health and approached Rodale Institute to transition the land to organic and farm vegetables to be used in patient meals and in the cafeteria.

One of the most pervasive and stupid things that we are currently told to do is to reduce salt intake. This advice has never been based on controlled clinical studies, ever. Yet, as with the cholesterol myth, the dogma that we should all reduce salt intake has become impervious to facts.
