I have also read about dairy products not being recommended by chinese doctors but to be honest I personally do not think this is suitable for us (unless you have allergy), milk contains tonnes of good stuff, this is most natural product you can get so I firmly believe that it should be present in our diet but in moderation
Hello, I just wanted to say that my acupuncturist who is does traditional chinese medicine recommended that I drink more milk! So I guess it just depends on what they think you need?? She said I'm undernourished and need more protein. Definitely feel better so far....come on bfp!!
Briss I did have the same belief as you and switched to organic full fat as less nasties in it but I am still worried about the high levels of Oestrogen in it
I have checked online and it seems that oestrogen only comes from pregnant cows. it is interesting to know whether organic farms also milk pregnant cows? if not then you are probably safe using their milk.
Location: Cocooned in my bed drinking hot chocolate!
I am in now way a cattle expert (despite living in one of the main farming counties of the UK) but I thought that cows were pregnant a large chunk of the time to ensure their milk supply doesn't dry up?
In all honesty (not to sound like a soap box zealot) the whole dairy farming upsets me more then milk farming but I am scared to give it up completely as I don't really eat too much meat and milk is a good source of protein for me.
I wish someone would just give a clear set of guidelines for fertility that weren't contradicted all the time
