Introducing Raw Milk Into Your Diet

Due to the western diet, where previously we used to consume 10-15 servings of fermented food per day, nowadays the average person consumes little if any. For this reason when you are introducing a raw food into your diet (ie. Raw Milk) you should begin slowing with small amounts so your body can adjust to the beneficial microflora.

If you do get sick and can relate to one of the following:

  1. - are new to traditional eating,
  2. - have a weaker immune system
  3. - leaky gut
  4. - known gastrointestinal dysbiosis
  5. - candida
  6. - suspected parasites
then it would pay to go off all raw foods including raw fermented vegetables and raw milk until you have recovered. Instead take a probiotic that is going to provide specific necessary probiotic strains.
