This is a very important subject and to get the full impact of how our
species was nourished and thrived on raw milk, only to have it
manipulated and presented as “BAD” is a story unto itself and as horrific
as it is, it’s fascinating. All my patients are required to buy this book, The
Untold Story of Milk, by Schmid. As parents and future parents I think it
imperative that we educate ourselves by close investigation of what we are
being told about this and nutrition in general, so we can make wise,
educated decisions on how we feed ourselves and our children. Please
don’t expect the truth from the manufacturers of processed foods and
Every household should have a copy of The Untold Story of Milk,
Schmid. The politics of the denigration of this well balanced food that has
sustained our species since we became a species and still does for
numerous cultures throughout the world, is an important history to
As Sally Fallon of the Weston Price Foundation states, “Pasteurization
destroys enzymes, diminishes vitamin content, denatures fragile milk
proteins, destroys vitamin B12 and vitamin B6, kills beneficial bacteria,
promotes pathogens and is associated with allergies, increased tooth
decay, colic in infants, growth problems in children, osteoporosis, arthritis,
heart disease and cancer.”
Calves fed pasteurized milk die before maturity.
Raw milk sours naturally, but pasteurized milk turns putrid and
processors must remove slime and pus from pasteurized milk by a process
of centrifugal clarification. Inspection of dairy herds for disease is not
required for pasteurized milk, thus we end up drinking milk from cows
that could be sick. Farms that sell certified raw milk MUST have their
herbs checked for illnesses, the commercial farmers do not. The practice
of heating milk to kill germs was instituted in the 20s to combat TB, infant
diarrhea, undulant fever and other diseases caused by poor animal
nutrition and dirty production methods.
But times have changed and modern stainless steel tanks, milking
machines, refrigerated trucks and inspection methods make pasteurization
absolutely unnecessary for public protection. Clean raw milk from
certified healthy cows is available commercially in several states and may
be bought directly from the farm in many more.
Under Delicious Recipes, I have an Organic Raw Milk Shake that
contributes significantly to the success of getting my patients pregnant.
It’s delicious, filling, and supports the hormones magnificently.
Whole Foods now carry Organic Raw Milk, Butter, Cream and a
small variety of cheeses.
The Confusion Between Organic and Healthy
The consumer move to "organic" is an encouraging step in the right
direction, but unfortunately most of the extra money spent on these
products is wasted due to consumer’s misunderstanding of basic
First let me point out the obvious. Organic sugar is not any healthier
than non-organic sugar. They are both major enemies to your health. You
can apply this to Organic Pasteurized milk, as well as soy/almond/rice
I have long been opposed to most people drinking milk as it is
frequently associated with a worsening of health, allergies, asthma,
digestive disorders, etc., etc.
This is particularly sad because milk is one of the healthiest foods
available prior to its being pasteurized. Raw dairy is something I now
strongly advise nearly everyone to regularly consume raw milk, cream,
cheese, yogurt as well as coconut milk and oils. Please see Recipes for
Raw Milk/Coconut Shake. Your adrenals/hormones will love this
delicious shake and will flourish.
Adrenals need B6, C complex, cholesterol, sodium and fat-soluble
nutrients A and D. All adrenal cortex products are derived from
cholesterol. Until the mid-20th century, the basic source of all this these in
the American diet was raw cow’s milk. Adrenal stress and mal-nutrition
are the two major factors I find related to infertility.
A final note: Don’t waste your money on Organic Pasteurized Milk.
Educate yourself. Read The Untold Story of Milk, Schmid
