Three Health Problems Caused By Milk
Diseases infecting the intestines, lungs and skin
are closely related. According to some clinical
statistics, children who suffer from dermatitis are
unfortunately subjected to asthma and/or some other
respiratory tract illnesses as well. Some even
suffer from constipation. Many parents, however, are
ignorant about this matter.
1. Intestinal Tract- Digestion and Excretion
casein in the milk cannot be completely digested. It
stays in the stomach and coagulates. It then
produces a sticky substance that hinders the
digestive functions of the stomach and intestines.
Casein clogs up the lymph nodes and, consequently,
affects the digestive organs and blood circulatory
system. To improve the functions of the digestive
system, we must have the will to change our dietary
habits, as well to maintain proper daily toiletry
habits. I encourage you to eat more fruits and
vegetables particularly those that are rich in fibre.
They include papayas, bananas, green vegetables,
carrots, sweet potatoes, edible fungi and tomatoes.
Supplement your daily diet with some healthcare
products - for example, supplements with high
cellulose, good bacteria, large amounts of enzymes
and the enzyme
pectase. Proper diets help in the peristalsis of the
2. Skin -Allergies and Inflammations
You often heard of these words “milk
allergy”, but do you really know what is it all about, including
its causes, symptoms, prevention methods and treatments? What if
you just realize that your child is allergic to milk?
What should you do then? Now, let us get to know more about milk
Milk allergy is a type of food allergy in which our body could
not accept the protein in the cow’s milk or animal’s milk. Our
immune system reacts against these proteins and see these
proteins as an antigen, thus triggering the production of an
allergic antibody. Milk allergy also has the potential to cause
life-threatening condition, known as anaphylaxis. Sometimes,
lactose intolerance is mistaken for milk allergy although they
are actually two different conditions as a person with lactose
intolerance faces difficulty in breaking down the sugar in milk
for proper digestion due to the absent of the responsible
All the symptoms of milk allergy can be classified into three
major symptoms as follows:
Type 1: The symptoms start right after the consumption of cow’s
This reaction affects the skin, causing skin rashes, eczema and
Type 2: The symptoms start after a few hours after the
consumption of cow’s milk. It affects the gastrointestinal tract
and causes symptoms like diarrhea and vomiting.
Type 3: The symptoms usually start after twenty hours after the
consumption of cow’s milk. The most common symptom is diarrhea.
How can individuals with milk allergy prevent it then? The best
way to prevent milk allergy is by avoiding foods that contain
“Hmmm...it’s easy to say to avoid foods containing dairy
products. Then, what else should individuals with milk allergy
eat?” This is one of the popular questions that might arise in
Well, one should not be too worried as nowadays, there are many
commercial foods, such as rice milk, soy milk, oat milk, coconut
milk and almond milk, that can be used as a substitute to cow’s
milk. However, it is very important for the allergic individuals
to find other sources of calcium in order to prevent calcium
deficiency and osteoporosis. Besides that, they can also take
fruit juices as an alternative source that supplements calcium. In cases of accidental consumption of cow’s milk, one can go for
Epinephrine pen or an Antihistamine, such as Diphenhydramine
(Benadryl), which is frequently prescribed by doctors to treat
accidental cow’s milk consumption.
Therefore, it is very important for the milk allergic
individuals to be extra careful on the food they consume. The
best way is to always check on the food label for ingredients
used before consuming it. At the same time, one
should not forget to take calcium supplements in diet in order
to stay healthy.
(anaphylactic) hypersensitivity is a common
disorder. The disease is caused by the body coming
in contact with certain allergens; consequently
triggering the immune system of the skin to rapidly
form rashes or to cause the feeling of itchiness on
its surface. The body picks up the allergens through
eating (contaminated food coming in contact with the
mouth), breathing (contaminated air coming in
contact with the nose) skin -to -skin contact
(touching), and through needles (injection).
Besides, excessive toxins in the intestinal tract
could unknowingly be transferred to the skin and
thereon endangering the other organs. This disorder
in children cannot be treated just with medication.
Improvement can be attained with the expulsion of
toxin directly from the intestines, lungs and the
sweat glands (in the skin), with the intake of more
enzymes that help enhance the self-healing process,
and with the proper diet and food consumption.
3. Lungs - The Respiratory System
would usually recommend parents of children with
sensitive, runny, blocked or inflamed nose to stop
feeding the young ones with milk and other dairy
products. Most parents would be surprised or
doubtful at first. But these are allergic reactions
to the protein found in milk! Too much casein can
lead to problems with the children. When a child
cold or has cough, his or her food intake should be
made up of more vegetables that easily digestible
and high in energy content. In addition, their diets
should contain more "bean products" (such as soybean
milk and bean curd) and some appropriate amounts of
lean meat. It recommended that the dishes be steamed
instead of deep-fried, pan-fried or grilled.
The latter three are not advisable during this
The excess toxin in the
intestinal tract could spread to the liver, lungs,
blood, lymph nodes, and later to the bone marrow and
skin. If a child suffers from a long period of
unhealthy intestinal tract, the skin could be
affected as well, and the toxin level in the body
can no longer be considered insignificant anymore!
