The Milk Cure: Real Milk Cures Many Diseases

Health-TheMilkCure-600x626By J. R. Crewe, MD
January 1929

The following is an edited version of an article by Dr. J. R. Crewe, of the Mayo Foundation, forerunner of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, published in Certified Milk Magazine, January 1929. We are grateful to Dr. Ron Schmid, ND of Middlebury, CT for unearthing this fascinating piece. The “Milk Cure” was the subject of at least two books by other authors, written subsequently to Dr. Crewe’s work. The milk used was, in all cases, the only kind of milk available in those days—raw milk from pasture-fed cows, rich in butterfat. The treatment is a combination of detoxifying fast and nutrient-dense feeding. Note that Crewe quotes William Osler, author of a standard medical textbook of the day. Thus, this protocol was an orthodox, accepted therapy in the early 1900s. Today the Mayo Clinic provides surgery and drug treatments, but nothing as efficacious and elegant as the Milk Cure.


For fifteen years the writer has employed the certified milk treatment in various diseases and during the past ten he had a small sanitarium devoted principally to this treatment. The results obtained in various types of disease have been so uniformly excellent that one’s conception of disease and its alleviation is necessarily changed. The method itself is so simple that it does not greatly interest most doctors and the main stimulus for its use is from the patients themselves.

To cure disease we should seek to improve elimination, to make better blood and more blood, to build up the body resistance. The method used tends to accomplish these things. Blood conditions rapidly improve and the general condition and resistance is built up and recovery follows.

In several instances, Osler (Principles and Practices of Medicine, by William Osler, MD eighth edition) speaks of milk as being nothing more than white blood. Milk resembles blood closely and is a useful agent for improving and making new and better blood. Blood is the chief agent of metabolism. Milk is recognized in medical literature almost exclusively as a useful food and is admitted to be a complete food.

The therapy is simple. The patients are put at rest in bed and are given at half hour intervals small quantities of milk, totalling from five to ten quarts of milk a day. Most patients are started on three or four quarts of milk a day and this is usually increased by a pint a day. Diaphoresis [copious perspiration] is stimulated by hot baths and hot packs and heat in other forms. A daily enema is given.

The treatment is used in many chronic conditions but chiefly in tuberculosis, diseases of the nervous system, cardiovascular and renal conditions, hypertension, and in patients who are underweight, run-down, etc. Striking results are seen in diseases of the heart and kidneys and high blood pressure. In cases in which there is marked edema, the results obtained are surprisingly marked. This is especially striking because so-called dropsy has never been treated with large quantities of fluid. With all medication withdrawn, one case lost twenty-six pounds in six days, huge edema disappearing from the abdomen and legs, with great relief to the patient. No cathartics or diuretics were given. This property of milk in edema has been noted in both cardiac and renal cases.

Patients with cardiac disease respond splendidly without medication. In patients who have been taking digitalis and other stimulants, the drugs are withdrawn. High blood pressure patients respond splendidly and the results in most instances are quite lasting. The treatment has been used successfully in obesity without other alimentation. One patient reduced from 325 pounds to 284 in two weeks, on four quarts of milk a day, while her blood pressure was reduced from 220 to 170. Some extremely satisfying results have been obtained in a few cases of diabetics.

When sick people are limited to a diet containing an excess of vitamins and all the elements necessary to growth and maintenance, which are available in milk, they recover rapidly without the use of drugs and without bringing to bear all the complicated weapons of modern medicine.

Under the head of Treatment in Chronic Gastritis, Osler has said, “A rigid milk diet should be tried” (Principles and Practices of Medicine, by William Osler, M.D., eighth edition). And quoting from George Cheyne, he wrote, “Milk and sweet sound blood differ in nothing but color: milk is blood.” Under the heading of treatment in many diseases, it was true that he had little to say about drugs but did say a good deal about diet and particularly as in most every instance he recommended large quantities of milk.

Under chronic Bright’s disease (p 704) he says, “Milk or buttermilk should constitute for a time, the chief article of food.” Under treatment of cancer of stomach (p 505), he says many patients do best on milk alone. Under treatment of rheumatic fever (p 378), he says, “Milk is the most suitable diet.” With Olser as a background, one need not hesitate to go a bit farther. In fact, practically all medical men are agreed as to the value of milk as a food, and as an important part of the diet in the treatment of many diseases. But as the chief remedy in the treatment of disease, it is seldom used.

For more than 16 years I have conducted a small sanitarium where milk is used almost exclusively in the treatment of various diseases. The results have been so regularly satisfactory that I have naturally become enthusiastic and interested in this method of treating disease. We used good Guernsey milk, equal to 700 calories to the quart.

Interestingly, diseases that have no similarity respond equally to this treatment. For instance, psoriasis clears up beautifully. The improvement in tuberculosis or nephritis is equally interesting but there is no similarity in these diseases. I once heard a very distinguished medical man discussing a case of psoriasis. He said, “This was the worst case of psoriasis I have ever seen. This boy was literally covered from head to foot with scales. We put this boy on a milk diet and in less than a month he had a skin like a baby’s.” To me, this means that there was evidently some nutritive substance or vitamin or glandular secretion lacking, that was furnished by the milk.

It is well known that there is no time in the life of practically any mammal, but especially of the human, when the body is so beautiful and perfect as during the period when milk is the only food. It will be admitted that there is no period in life when the body is so perfect as in infancy, the infant being fed on milk from a healthy mother.

The Arabs are said (Encyclopedia Brittanica) to be the finest race, physically, in the world. Their diet consists mostly of milk and milk products with fruits and vegetables, and some meat.

You are all familiar with the writings of Colonel McCarrison, a medical officer in the British Army. He tells us that for nine years he was stationed in India in a district in the Himalayan Mountains. He said that the natives were very fine physically, that they retained a youthful appearance to advanced age and lived long and that they were very fertile. During the nine years of his residence there he saw practically no disease, no cases of malignancy or of abdominal disease. The diet of these people was simple and consisted principally of vegetables and fruits and milk and milk products.

Steffanson wrote most interestingly of the Eskimo, who, when uncontaminated by civilized conditions were hardy and robust. Their diet of course was almost entirely of meat and fish. He tells us, however, that the habits of meat-eating people are similar to those of carnivorous animals. The wolf first attacks the heart and gets the blood and later eats the glandular organs and viscera, leaving the muscle meats till the last. The Eskimo does the same thing.

During one expedition Mr. Steffanson and party started on a nine months’ trip over the Arctic ice with only one day’s provisions. All previous Arctic explorers had said that civilized men could not live in the Arctic regions without bringing in their supplies. Mr. Steffanson and his party, during the nine months, were almost never without an abundance of food, and much of it was eaten frozen and raw. I wish to show from Steffanson’s experience, first, that it is possible for people to be robust and maintain good health on various types of food of limited variety. That the condition common to all types of diet is, that much of the food is eaten raw. I wish to say here that our very excellent results obtained in the treatment of disease were had with uncooked food and raw milk.

The experience of seeing many cases of illness improve rapidly on a diet of raw milk has suggested more and more the feeling that much of modern disease is due to an increasing departure from simple methods of preparing plain foods. The treatment of various diseases over a period of 18 years with a practically exclusive milk diet has convinced me personally that the most important single factor in the cause of disease and in the resistance to disease is food. I have seen so many instances of the rapid and marked response to this form of treatment that nothing could make me believe this is not so.

We have often seen most satisfactory results in the treatment of anemia, including pernicious anemia, on a milk diet. I have repeatedly seen a marked reduction in the size of simple and toxic thyroid, with improvement in the symptoms of the toxic one. In prostatic diseases and associated conditions, this treatment will achieve rapid and marked improvement in the infection and in the reduction of the gland and lessening of obstruction. A professor of surgery in one of our state universities once said to me, “Since I have used your method in preparing prostate cases, I have had most excellent results and no mortality.” I replied that if he had continued the treatment a little longer, he would not need to operate. All infections of the urinary tract are greatly improved by this treatment.

An old friend of mine, a woodworker, aged 74, had a marked heart lesion and complete prostatic obstruction, so that it was necessary to use a permanent catheter. He had been taking digitalis but this was discontinued, and he received no medication of any kind. The prostate was very large and the residual urine very foul. His recovery has been rapid, and he has been able to work since that time and is now in very good health at 77 years of age. Another local man was treated six years ago for a severe chronic winter cough and prostatic disease, which necessitated his getting up many times at night. He volunteered the information a few days ago that he had no more trouble with any illness since that time.

Indeed we had a number of patients who took the treatment for “beauty treatment.” The tissues become firmer and the general appearance is markedly improved.

One patient with very advanced cardiac and nephritic disease lost over thirty pounds of edema in six weeks. One would expect the large quantities of fluid would increase the edema but the above experience has been repeated many times in lesser degrees.

Hypertension responds with equal gratification. The blood pressure improves rapidly. I have never seen such rapid and lasting results by any other method. One of the patients lived almost exclusively on milk for more than three years.

About ten years ago a very sick man came to the Sanitarium suffering from a severe cystitis and nephritis. He was a diabetic. As milk contains about five percent milk sugar, it was feared that he could not manage this amount of sugar. But he did manage it, and improved in every way and in eight weeks was sugar free. My experience with milk diet in diabetes has been limited, but very interesting. These few patients, only seven or eight, have been much pleased with the results. Insulin was used for a time in some of the cases. They all became sugar free, or nearly so, after from four to ten weeks. From the fact that these patients were able to use a much more liberal diet than diabetics usually can take [after the treatment], it would seem to indicate that at least a partial regeneration of the pancreas is not impossible.

Recently I received a letter from a soldier who was confined in a government hospital in Arizona [for tuberculosis]. He said a former patient of mine had induced him to try this method. He said that he had done so well that a number of the men were also attempting it and he had written for more definite instructions. He also said that the patients had to buy their own milk and received no encouragement from the hospital authorities.

There is a large class of patients who are ill but in whom no definite organic lesion can be found. These patients are often underweight. They may consume a fairly large amount of food but they do not gain in weight or strength. These patients do respond admirably to our system of large quantities of milk.

The chief fault of the treatment is that it is too simple. Patients attempt to do it at home, but there are many pitfalls, and it does not appeal to the modern medical man.

  1. Very interesting. I have a PSA of 16 and a some what enlarged prostate. The milk diet sounds interesting. I would like more details if possible

  2. I have damage caused by Long Term Lyme Indection, his being neurlogical in nature. I have started the raw milk {fast diet if you may} today April 30, 2013. I have also traved deep into Mexico and received stem cell implants on three separate trips in the last two / three years.
    This ailment nearly killed me litterely! Iam very excited to start this raw milk diet. I know it shall bring good changes and improvments. By the way goat’s milk is what Iam useing.
    Janet

    • Janet- I don’t have any major health issues just a little overweight. I have done several long term juice cleanses but interested in trying this to see what type of results it produces. I have a friend who has severe lyme disease. Please let me know how this works for you, I would be curious if it cures lymes disease. you can reach me at tonyacdahl@gmail.com thanks.

    • Hi Janet,

      Good luck on the milk treatment. I am in LA and have ben drinking Raw Milk for years. I felt moved to just mention that you may find better results on cows milk form Grass fed cows than Goats. Cows milk is much higher in fat and more calming tot he nervous system. If you have never had Raw Milk before you may need to take it slow, or let it come to room temperature first. We have found here that even Lactose Intolerant people can drink raw milk this way. Thanks.

      • Actually goats milk is much higher in fat depending on the breed of goat. Nigerian dwarf goat can have up to 10% butterfat. I have to use it as creamer or make ice cream out of it because its so thick. Goats milk is naturally homoginized so there’s no creaM seperation. That might be why people think its lower in fat.

    • My wife has been bitten by a tick ( about a month ago ) and is now showing some of the symptoms of Lyme, included Bell’s Palsy.

      I was encouraged to learn that someone is attempting the Milk Cure to help then address their Lyme concerns.

      PLEASE keep us posted as to any results you get.

      LARSmith217@GMail.Com

      VERY GRATEFULL FOR YOUR POST & future info !!!

    • Hi Janet, I am very interested in how you are doing. I am quite sure that I have undiagnosed Lyme and plan to start the Milk diet very soon. Looking forward to hearing from you!

    • How did it go with your treatment? I am curious as I contracted Lyme’s about five years ago and worried about it progressing. Thanks!

    • Hi Janet, I haven’t seen an update…. can you please tell us how long you did the milk cleanse and if it helped you with the Lyme symptoms. Thanks!

  3. I am interested to know if the milkldiet can help me gain weight. I have a great appetite, eat too much trying to put on weight, but unable.

  4. Hi,
    I have access to our own raw cows milk. Just wondering if this diet can be done while breast feeding and how much milk would need to be consumed to keep up my milk supply? Im just wanting to shed those extra kilo’s and to get a bit more energy? Also I have a 2 year old who has had colds and flu’s on and off for quite a few weeks now. By choice is consuming a lot of raw cows milk.. would it help to switch his diet totally until his health improves?

  5. Thank you for the excellent article. I looked this up on the internet as a response to my neighbor who mentioned it. She has tried the milk diet with fantastic results… using raw milk from grass fed cows.

    So many folks are sick today and in need of hope but we are all so overexposed to high dollar marketing campaigns that such simple approaches to health seem too good to be true. As a middle school teacher, I have taken many classes to tour a large milk factory…stood by the vats(through a glass wall) and watched the machines do all the pasteurization/ homogenization and adding high fructose chocolate syrup while we all cheered. How udderly absurd!

    We are so out of touch with the beauty of life and the way the brilliant Maker designed our bodies to flourish. Sad to say that I have only begun to understand how important raw milk is (at the age of 45)!

  6. I’ve had an intractable blood pressure issue that stubbornly refused all my best efforts with diet, supplementation, exercise, meditation. Try as I could, it would stay down much under 160/100. It was that on waking and prior to going to sleep.

    I’ve done the raw milk regime now for just 12 days.

    Its knocked 40 point off the top systolic rate and 20 points off the bottom diastolic rat. I’m now tracking at 120/80 regularly and even under that.

    Delighted? – no more elated!

    • Thank you Ian, most people let you know they will try it but don’t follow up on it and let us know how it worked. I have HBP off and on and make lots of raw milk yogurt and Milk kefir , but not much milk alone. It seemed to make me constipated.
      I think I will try this diet too. How long did you stay on it? How old are you. I am 74 in good health I take no med’s . Please email me to let me know if possiable. Thanks Bonny tango68412@gmail.com

  8. Hello, I am also interested in the details of exactly how to go about a raw milk diet cleanse. Here in New Zealand we are lucky to have access to both raw cow & raw goat milk, however I felt quite heavy and bloated with the cow’s milk and have switched to the very much more expensive goat’s milk ($5 per litre compared to only $2 per litre for cow!), no reaction, feels like sunshine in a bottle ;). I am making kefir as well, any comments on whether adding kefir to the daily diet of straight raw milk would prove an advantage?

    • Sally Fallon Morell said to note that the milk cure includes detoxification measures such as daily enemas and steaming baths. She says it is fine to do the cleanse with goat milk, and she thinks adding kefir would be fine also.

  9. Despite a steady dose of stress, I tend to have quite low blood pressure (96/50), sweat very little, and have neuropathy in my fingers and toes from chemotherapy (for Hodgkins lymphoma). I’ve found a nearby farm that produces (wonderful!) raw milk from grassfed cows. Does anyone know if drinking this regularly will further decrease my blood pressure? I’m hoping that, if anything, it will help normalize it (in my case, bring it up, and increase the circulation to my extremities). Thank you!!

    • I am on the milk diet . I started FIRST WITH 4 DAY WATER ONLY FAST. Thats what the book the Raw Milk Diet says to do. It sounds like most of you never mention that is a really important part of the diet. I Did the water fast for four days and will next time do it much longer probably a week. I was totally amazed at the results. I was Never hungry, or craving anything, I slept well Iost 4 lbs.

      Then I started on the milk today is my eleventh day and I plan on staying on it for at least another week. No cravings , no hunger. Just the orginary constipation. That’s why I started on the whole adventure, to cure my chronic constipation., I am now producing every other day White poop. looks strange but whatever it takes.
      I think I have internal digestion problems. biggest reason to try this died. I have been taken Raw milk yougert and milk kefir starting yesterday..
      I will warn you tho, its a full time job. I am 75 retired in seemingly good health. I take NO meds No vaccinations etc. I weighed 123 when I started my weight went up to 125 last week and is now leveling off and back to 123.9 this morning.

      My advise is get the book. It is chock full of all kinds of info, and exact instruction. But remember DO the water fast first. Also you can’t just drink the milk. That is really misleading , you should sip it as slowly as possiable. That is why it is such a full time job.
      Good luck on this diet . I will let everyone know how it goes and the results I get in a week or two.

  10. My wife has fibromyalgia and 5 yrs ago we started raw milk from Jersey cow and within 4 or 5 days her pain was absolutely gone we continue to this day and she is parfect as long as the milk is available

  11. I’m 62 and had a laminectomy “spine surgery” c-3,4,5,6 and 7 on July 5 2013. All 3 of my pre-operation doctors could not get over the shape I was in. Two weeks after my surgery the doctor removed the bandage; my 6 1/2″ incision on the back of my neck, where they had to cut through the muscles, was healing far faster than normal and the doctor removed the staples. I saw him four weeks later and he couldn’t understand how I’d healed so quickly regardless of my age. He performs 5 to 7 spine surgeries a week for the past 20 years, most recently at St. John’s in Santa Monica, and doesn’t see this type of rapid healing. I told him before the surgery I drink at least a quart of raw milk a day since 1975 and I doubt I’ll have much trouble recuperating. Two of the three doctors who checked me out looked like old men yet they were younger than me after I went over the numerous raw milk studies, etc., they are both now drinking raw milk. The third doctor oddly enough was a raw milk advocate and would participate in debates regarding raw milk.

    At 12 years old I had to go to the doctor due to small lumps forming throughout my body. The doctor told me to stop drinking milk because I was getting calcium deposits throughout my body. The milk I was drinking was pasteurized. In 1975 I started working out at Vince Gironda’s gym in the San Fernando valley. Vince put me on 4 quarts of raw milk a day. He explained the pros of raw milk and just how dangerous pasteurized milk was. Once I stopped working out I continued drinking raw milk. I prefer Claravale which uses Jersey cows.

    FYI, the only supplements I’ve been taking for the last 12 years are curcumin (a pharmaceutical grade from “Ageless Cures”), resveratrol, CoQ10 “ubiquinal form”, D3 from Ageless Cures, and a sublingual B complex.

    • Hello Marty, thanks for the info. Im 74 Female have digestion problems constipation mostly. No meds of any kind. I drink raw milk kefir and yogurt , But no where near that much. I m still constipated. unless I make a concoction of apple onion and grapefruit Peth. Really cleans me out but it turns to water. Its one or the other. I am going to try the milk died too.
      What else do you eat. Or is it better to eat only milk? Thanks in advance for your help. bonny

      • I also use raw coconut oil for cooking ect.and coconut water. I buy young coconuts only. Coconut water is so similar to human blood it was used as an IV during world war 2.

  12. I do know this is so.I had a very sick baby,born unwell,on the advice of my mother sought out raw goats milk.This saved the child from severe and chronic colic.Both my children thrived on this.When I had to take one to a childrens hospital for studies,the Dr. there asked what i was feeding her,I told him and he blew up and tore a strip off me a mile wide,and dumped my gallon of raw goat milk out and forced me to feed her soy.

    • He can’t force you to do anything. It is your choice as you have to live with the consequences. If you don’t want to be refused, don’t ask.

      It was none of the doctor’s business what you are feeding your child if the child is thriving. It is only the doctor’s concern if the child is sick.

  13. In addition to my quart of raw milk a day I like fertile eggs, fish, some vegetables and some meat. I like the Weston price foundations recommendations..having said that ill eat pretty much anything I feel like pizza fast food ect. However the raw milk lessons the desire for unhealthy foods, cravings also go away which is one of the first things that happen when people go on raw milk diets..sometimes I’ll drink a half quart or more of raw milk for breakfast and have no desire for food until about 4…
    I also have been taking a “pharmaceutical” grade of curcumin for the last ten years. A study out of England determined the reason the people in India have such a low occurrence of Alzheimer’s disease is the large amount of curry they eat. Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric which is what curry is made of. I get mine from Ageless Cures you should call and talk to Jo if your interested..I also take a sublingual b complex, ubiquinal and Resveratroll. Good luck..

  14. Agreed just dairy by itself can seriously gum up your “works.” :):)

    What I now do is add a good heaped desert spoon of coconut flour into around a half litre of raw mmilk and beat it in with an egg beater.

    Little room heaven!

    Plus my BP just loves the combo

    • Thanks Ian, I will try that coconut flour. When I get off the exclusive milk diet. I do take citrus juice (recommended in the book to help with the alkilizing the body and with constipation. It seems to helpl

      I do tire easily even just taking the dog for a short walk. I am ready to lay down afterward. I don’t tho too much to do. But I do notice the lack of energy which I never had before the diet. I usuallly walk the dog for about 2 miles. 45 min. I will resume that when I am off the diet.

    • Yes, in some parts of the country it is still difficult. In some places, friends join together to make large carpooling groups. Everyone takes a turn every few months making a long trip with coolers to bring back a lot of milk for a number of families. By coordinating their efforts, everyone can get milk but only have to make the long trip once in a while.

      If you can find like minded people you can get a group together and establish a relationship with a local farmer to do a herdshare with your group. The group owns the animals and pays the farmer for room and board, and labor to do the milking, bottling, and sometimes delivery.

  15. Had warm raw milk in Germany when I was 17 and it was not very pleasant. I am 55 and the thought of trying it again is hard. I guess those past experiences stick with you! I have not had regular cow’s milk in over a year due to digestion issues, possible lactose intolerance, even though blood work did not indicate it. What is the best way to start with raw milk? A couple of weeks ago, I was in Mexico and had raw milk cheese and really enjoyed it. My body did ok with it. Thanks

    • Many, perhaps most of those who are lactose intolerant are able to drink raw milk without problems because raw milk contains lactase, the enzyme needed to digest the lactose in milk. Raw milk cheese, cream, butter, and ghee have relatively little or no lactose so those products are not usually a problem for people with lactose intolerance. (Rather, some people are allergic to casein, the protein in milk, and will have more trouble with cheese, which concentrates the casein, compared to fluid milk.)

      If you are lactose intolerant, start slow. Try a few sips and see how you do. Add a bit more each day and see if you reach a point where you have a problem, and then back off (or you may find you can successfully build up without any problem).

      Also, you can get the benefits of raw milk via raw yogurt or kefir, which have beneficial bacteria and may be easier to digest. Raw cream, butter, ghee, and cheese are also options. So you do not have to drink fluid milk to get the benefits of raw dairy.

  16. very interesting article :) here in Australia, unfortunately it’s still illegal to sell raw milk :( though I’m lucky enough to have access to it, but it is not organic, and the cattle are fed grain whilst being milked…I’m finding myself becoming increasingly sensitive to chemicals/pesticides/herbicides, or any products which have been grain fed. They really exascerbate my symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome/fibromyalgia/IBS. If there’s anyone who could help in locating someone who can offer organic raw milk from grass fed cows, could you please contact me trainer.qh@hotmail.com Also, if I could get an overview of the milk diet that would be great :)

  17. Hello, I have been advised by a doctor to drink milk in the first stage of my scalp psoriasis. But because I don’t like milk, I look for someone who can advise me with simple remedies and according to http://www.psoriasistreatmentadvisor.com, milk cannot cure psoriasis but it should only serve as moisturizer.

  18. Thank you for this article. I have started the raw milk diet today and hope to go about 10 days. I am 46 with no major health problems. I am doing it as a gentle cleanse for my body. In the last 10 years I have put on about 15 lbs that I can’t seem to get rid of and it feels like a metabolic imbalance/sugar imbalance (most of the weight being around the middle). I have done other types of cleanses in the past so I am interested to see how this compares. I began drinking raw milk about 1 year ago and making raw milk kefir. I just LOVE the taste and look forward to nourishing my body in this way. I am keeping tracking of my sugar levels daily (using a refractometer) and will let you all know how it goes.

  19. Yes ,I makes a difference how much you weigh or how tall you are. I am 5’4″ and weigh 120 lb/s . I should take 5 quarts pr day. I don’t tho. I cant get that much from my farmer friend unless he loses a customer. I take 4 qts pr day. Men will need more than thatI would take to long to write this all out. You should get the book. The Miracle of Milk
    I think I paid 11 dollars for it. I is very detailed and so much information.
    Good Luck

    • I forgot to mention the author’s name is Bernarr Macfadden.
      Raw Milk has been used way back in 1923.
      It says how to use the “Milk diet Sientifically at Home”.

      Most people (including me) before I got the book think “OH I can do that . Just drink milk. Not quite so easy as that. Simple , but not easy.LOL
      It does get easier when you get into a routine.

  20. No, Im still constipated, I feel good and am now taking about 2qts pr dayup till noon then water and bone broth. I had to quit the full milk after 3 weeks only because I had company coming and I just did not want to deal with it.

    But I did not gain any weight, at first I did but then later it came back to what I was before the diet.
    I dont know what would have happened if I had not had to cut back.

    I may try again when I know I won’t be leaveing home or having company .

  21. Does anyone know where to find the original article from 1929? I feel like I read it on the Internet years ago but have not been able to find it again. It was wonderfully specific regarding the treatment details, although I recall the emphasis was regarding cancer, not the other diseases mentioned above.

    I thought it was published by the Mayo Clinic, not Certified Milk Magazine, but I could be wrong.

    I have told several people about the report but they don’t believe me because I can’t find it again.

  22. What a great article! It’s really interesting that the milk was Guernsey milk which would have had the non-allergenic beta casein-A2, like goats, sheep, and humans do. I’ve been trying to find a source for Guernsey milk (in Wisconsin) but have not been able to (I can only drink goat and sheep milk). I wish that the WAPF would encourage farmers to have Guernsey cows again-Jerseys have been bred so much that, from what I’ve read, their milk is very likely to be the allergenic A1 beta casein. I think this would turn the entire dairy industry around, because many allergic people would be able to drink the milk again.
