Here's an important question that came in recently
that we spend a lot of time answering individually,
so to save some time and to help YOU now, here it is:
I have recommended your eating plan to several people
because it has worked so well for me. Today I mentioned it
to someone and I was asked why dairy products are
discouraged on this plan and I didn't know how to answer
Would you please respond so that I can share it with my
SB: Absolutely, Susan. There are so many health problems
caused by dairy products, it's hard to know where to begin.
But I'll try.
Cow's milk (which includes skim, 1%, 2%, whole, chocolate
milk, light cream, heavy cream and half and half) and all
other dairy products (including cheese, ice cream, sour
cream, cream cheese, custard and yogurt) are ALL acid
forming inside the body.
Note that this includes raw dairy products too---they
might be more "pure" and haven't been subjected to the
denaturing of pasteurization, but they still are acid-
Dairy products cause disease
There are mountains and mountains of studies linking the
consumption of dairy products to heart disease, cancer,
arthritis, migraines, allergies, asthma and other
These are all classic examples of illnesses caused or
worsened by excess acidity in your body.
Mucus buildup and ear infections
What happens is, dairy products also coat your mucus
membranes and result in thick, slow-moving mucus build-up.
That's the reason ice cream shops used to serve water with
your cone or sundae--because your throat's all clogged up
after eating it.
It's also the primary reason why so many children
constantly have runny, stuffy noses and ear infections--
their bodies can't deal with the mucus and end up all
Unfortunately, mainstream medicine hasn't been educated in
how foods affect the body (there's no money in it for
them), so most doctors, educated primarily in drug therapy,
just prescribe antibiotics or create small holes in kids'
ear drums and insert tubes (called a myringtomy) to drain
the pus and mucus.
So they ignore the cause and mask the symptoms, and your
child suffers as a result. First with badly imbalanced
intestinal flora from the antibiotics (which obliterates
their immune system) and possibly with permanent hearing
loss in later life from the drainage tubes in their ears.
Listen, if your kids have frequent colds, stuffy noses,
sinus infections and ear infections, here's something that
will actually help them--take them off of dairy and you'll
see a HUGE difference...a monumental change.
Milk a "health" food?
Dairy products are also high in cholesterol and fat, and
contain no fiber whatsoever. None.
Now, the Diary Council wants to make sure huge profits
continue to be made, so dairy is touted as a health food.
Attractive, slim celebrities are paid small fortunes to
paint fake milk moustaches on their upper lips and pose
with the captions "Got milk?" or "Body by milk."
There's even an interactive "got milk" website where you
can play games and learn all about how "wonderful" milk is.
The Dairy Council spared no expense on that one.
But let's look at the REAL facts--what you won't read in
Cow's milk, by nature, is designed to take an animal (a
cow) that weighs between 80-100 pounds at birth to a 550-
pound calf within 6-10 months.
I don't know of any humans with those growth stats, but
some are dangerously close.
Cow's milk also has 300 times more casein than human milk.
Casein is a thick, gooey protein substance that helps form
huge bovine bones.
But inside a human, it's nearly impossible to digest and
creates a tremendous amount of acid in the stomach.
It also has been linked to worsening symptoms of autism,
causing a drugged-up state that's similar to being on
The calcium scare
One of the scare tactics used by the dairy industry is
that dairy products are essential to make sure you have
This is simply not true. Completely false. The truth is--
and this is backed up by the medical records of milllleons
of arthritis and osteoporosis sufferers--the MORE milk you
drink, the LESS calcium you have in your bones. Fact.
Hard to believe, huh, especially with all the doctors and
commercials saying exactly the opposite?
This is partly because the calcium in dairy products (or
any other source such as supplements) is basically useless
in an acidic body. Dairy TAKES calcium, it doesn't GIVE it.
You see, when your body is overrun with acid, it uses its
own alkaline minerals, including calcium and magnesium,
from your bones and muscles to neutralize that acid.
So you don't get the benefit of the calcium from dairy or
any calcium supplement either, because it's used up in the
fight against the acid in your body, too.
There are literally hundreds of thousands of scientific
pages written on the dangers of dairy products.
The bottom line is this: Dairy products are NOT good for
you. They are NOT a health food. And they're NOT
essential to get calcium.
They are the perfect food to eat if you want to be sick,
overweight and diseased.
But I gotta have my dairy!
Now if you're having dairy withdrawal just from reading
If you must have dairy...if you "can't live without it,"
the Great Taste No Pain manuals teach you how to eat or
drink them to minimize their harmful effects.
GTNP also suggests delicious healthy alternatives to dairy
that you'll truly love.
And if calcium is your priority, you're all set because
the GTNP recipe book contains delicious recipes featuring
alkaline, calcium-rich foods. And with your body being
more alkaline by eating the GTNP way, you'll actually be
able to USE that calcium, too.
So instead of saying "Body by milk" and being sick, you'll
be able to say "Body by GTNP" and feel GREAT.
To your health,
PS: Lynn's sinuses are clearer and much more:
I have only been using your Great Taste No Pain system for
a few days and can a see improvements already.
If I stay away from dairy, my sinuses are clear. Eating
bread does not make me automatically 2 pounds heavier the
next day. In fact, if I avoid sugar I drop about 1/2 pound
a day and the bloating/belly fat is diminished.
I am also sleeping better. I am very encouraged that this
way of eating may clear up a number of nagging issues. (I
