So I’ve been asked ALOT about dairy and my thoughts on whether we should all go dairy free.
Here is my answer:
Dairy has been found to be mucous forming and in some cases triggers inflammation.
Here's why -
1 in 3 people are intolerant to dairy meaning they can't break down the sugar in milk (lactose)
Some of us down regulate (stop producing) the enzyme lactase which breaks down lactose.
We are the only mammal on the planet that drink milk from another animal beyond infancy
Milk is meant for calfs who have got four stomachs - we only have one.
There is research that shows that milk is actually so acidic that it leaches calcium from the bones to buffer the acidity.
In my 7 years of clinical experience people generally do better without dairy: there skin clears up, they lose weight, they have less mucous, they feel more energised and vibrant.
So I hope that helps!
Let me know how you get on
