Lactose Intolerance

 

 

 We wonder what happens to cause this condition. Is it our bodies, the milk, the additives in the milk, what the cows are given to produce more milk or all of the above that plays into this increasingly frequent diagnosis? When a baby is not able to drink milk that is a sad fact and often involves lots of trial and error. While I was pregnant with my youngest son, a Texas tornado hit our home. We will never know if it was stress of dealing with the devastation while caring for a 2 year old and a 3 year old, during this pregnancy or if he would have not tolerated milk anyway. As I began to wean him from the breast milk on to the local grocery store source, he began to loose weight from 14 lbs. down to his birth weight of 8 lbs. An older, experienced female pediatrician guided me. She said, “Whatever you do, don’t let your breast milk dry up.” And I didn’t. Then after another year or so , we found some friendly goats on a farm near our home, who became our dear friends. He graduated from law school last year and is now in practice with his dad. But I know personally what you are facing when your baby cannot tolerate lactose in regular milk. Remember, try to breast-feed. That milk is designed for baby humans and contains all the nutrients at the proper time and in the proper amounts. This is also a challenge to those who are lactose intolerant and want to keep their bones strong, and can’t tolerate milk.

 

We do the food allergy profile and find alternate sources of calcium that can be absorbed and enjoyed. This is possible and quite delightful. Fresh sources of organic leafy green vegetables, like kale are a good choice. I like to assess your levels and then prepare a list of foods that are needed to keep you healthy. I always recommend organic, fresh, frozen, canned in descending order. The closer to nature you can procure your food, the more likely your body is to accept it and send it to the right cells to do its job.
