Most people use the word “nostalgia” when they hear about raw milk or the milkman because it reminds them of a long-ago era. You may be surprised to know that raw milk was readily available in the USA and even administered in hospitals, as recently as 21 years ago. The American Association of Medical Milk Commissions (AAMMCC) certified clean, safe pastured raw milk from 1893-1999 for general market distribution and for medical therapeutic treatment! This very same raw milk was also administered in hospitals to treat chronic diseases, cardiovascular disease, renal disease, liver disease, hypertension, edema, asthma, arthritis, tuberculosis, and diabetes [1, 2, 3] because it was recognized for it’s medicinal benefits in infants, children and adults [4]. 

Dr. Charles Porter MD published his book Milk Diet as a Remedy for Chronic Disease to articulate his raw milk diet regimen after treating 18,000+ patients over 27 years. Dr J.E. Crewe MD, one of the founders of the Mayo Foundation (today the Mayo Clinic), successfully used raw milk in his medical practice 18+ years, and is famously known for stating “results obtained in various types of disease have been so uniformly excellent that one’s conception of disease and its alleviation is necessarily changed… When sick people are limited to a diet containing an excess of vitamins and all the elements necessary to growth and maintenance, they recover rapidly without the use of drugs and without bringing to bear all the complicated weapons of modern medicine” [2].

We’ve posted many excerpts from both Dr Porter and Dr Crewe’s books over the last 12yrs on our social media pages and in our emails to you. Today I’m happy to share with you a copy of the documented Dec 1925 Proceedings of the 29th Annual Meeting of the United States Live Stock Sanitary Association. It was 1925, when doctors performed their own unbiased research then wrote and published their own papers, and then self circulated their findings amongst other doctors, hospitals and medical schools. The protocol today is vastly different; research is paid for and performed by the pharmaceutical industry which then typically compensates a physician to John Hancock the findings and then uses the study to propel the drug amongst the medical and university communities. 

Let us always be grateful for medicine, there is a place for it and especially in dire emergencies, but let us also not forget that pharma studies native activity in nature, to copy and patent it. I’m saying, can I get an Amen for all the lovely cows that prance around and nibble pasture in order to provide us with divine raw milk aka “white blood” (per Dr Crewe)?!

You may find Dr Crewe’s study Use of Milk in the Treatment of Human Disease on pages 93-98.

Raw Milk Kefir aka The Other Bubbly

Raw Milk Kefir colonizes our intestinal tract with friendly beneficial bacteria! And why would we ever want this? Because our gut is our second brain, it houses our immune and digestive systems, which either nourishes us or not, protects us or not, and directs communication throughout our entire bodies, or not. Also, 90% of our human cells and genetic material is comprised of our gut flora. It’s a vast highway directing food traffic, nutrition deposits and a digestive system large enough to cover an entire tennis court. Our gut triggers thoughts, moods and behaviors and a healthy gut is alive with healthy bacteria that magnificently expels viruses and resets our bodies when our bodies are in a state of dis-ease.

Raw Kefir is a nutrient probiotic staple which you can make by yourself (infinitely) to feed your gut! You only need pastured Raw Milk + Raw Kefir, to make continues batches of this super food packed with 21+ healthy bacteria and at least 10 healthy yeast strains. It’s called the Champagne of Milk in France because of it’s effervescent taste and bubbly texture and is often served on New Year’s Eve to ring in the coming year. Many cultures across the globe consume raw kefir daily and it is especially included on New Year’s Eve since this probiotic of 30 microbes is synonymous with vigor and health. In Turkey raw kefir is included because it literally means “feel good”; in Tibet since it’s known as the “drink of the one hundred year olds”; in the Middle East it’s paired (esp with elaborate meals) as a digestive aid; in India most vegetarians consume it for it’s abundant Vitamin B12 and essential minerals; when Russian children return to school they will resume their cafeteria regimen of raw kefir before the first bell; and on Jan 1st in most European countries, people start their New Year’s Resolution to lose weight, by consuming extra portions of raw kefir and intermittent fasting. (And, they lose weight + feel great + have glowing skin!!).

A 2008 study by BMC Immunology discovered that fermented milk (esp kefir) consumed either during breastfeeding or by the child after weaning resulted in an increase in the number of Bifidobacteria in the gut and a decrease in the number of Enterobacteria and Closridium. And it did the same for middle aged people. It is a powerful antimicrobial agent and potent probiotic. Medical and scientific studies have found it to destroy pathogenic bacterial and fungal strains such as Salmonella, Helicobacter, Staphylococcus, Shigella, Proteus Vulgaris, Bacillus Subtilis, Micrococcus Luteus, Listeria Monocytogenes, Streptococcus Pyrogenes & Faecalis, Fuscarium Graminearum and Candida Albicans.

Raw Kefir’s combination of beneficial bacteria and yeasts, can repopulate your digestive tract with probiotics which can eliminate harmful bacteria. It is also abundant in fiber, which can help with constipation but prevent diarrhea and enterocolitis (inflammation in the small intestine and colon). The microorganism compilation of kefir has shown to lower the risk of stomach cancer in a study published in the International Dairy Journal, where researchers noted that certain probiotic strains induce apoptosis of gastric cancer cells.

You can use Raw Kefir in smoothies, soups, ice cream, salad dressings, dips or sauces, in baking to substitute yoghurt or buttermilk, and holistic dermatologists often instruct patients to use Raw Kefir as a facial wash, because it balances the skin’s acid/alkaline levels. And who doesn’t want to look fabulous, starting the new year!

Happy Gut = Happy New You = Happy 2019!



Raw Milk + Organic Turmeric = Ayurvedic Golden Milk

Raw Milk & Turmeric are often prescribed in Ayurvedic medicine to cure many ailments including; severe cases of Fibromyalgia, controlling free radical activity, relieving inflammation, liver cleansing and even to repair neurological damage from excitotoxins. A little cod liver oil with turmeric, in addition to adding nutrient dense fats (ie pastured raw butter, pastured tallow, coconut oil) to one’s diet, can reduce the likelihood of damage from excitotoxins (which primarily depends on the quality of a person’s diet, to begin with)! 

The benefits of consuming turmeric along with good fats, are too many to list here but I cannot stop myself from mentioning this one… When the diabolical vaccine Gardasil surfaced, Dr Dalbergue (formerly with Merck) called it “the greatest medical scandal of all time” (2014). Another doctor at that time, Dr Russell Blaylock concluded that the harm of HPV vaccines far exceed any claimed benefits and said “The general public is woefully unaware of the fact that vitamin B12, folic acid, vitamin C, curcumin (turmeric), quercetin and many other natural nutrients and vitamins naturally prevent HPV and cervical cancer.”1
