GOT MILK? - NO THANKS!
There’s no other “food” that is more difficult to digest than milk. Casein, which accounts for approximately 80% of the protein found in milk, immediately clumps together once it enters the stomach, making digestion very difficult.
Furthermore, the most popular store-bought milks are homogenized. Homogenization suspends the milk-fat particles to prevent the fat from floating to the top. Homogenization introduces air into the milk and oxidizes the fatty substance, creating free radicals which are extremely toxic to our body. It doesn’t stop there: now the milk gets pasteurized at high temperatures to kill bacteria. As we have learned in the enzyme chapter, high temperatures destroy enzymes. In short, milk sold in stores not only lack precious enzymes, but the milk-fat is oxidized and the quality of the proteins is changed due to pasteurization.
Milk is the worst type of food, for kids and adults alike.
Some of the side effects drinking milk can cause are:
Homemade Almond Mylk - This is How I Make It
You could also make different nut-mylks. I have found almond to make the best tasting mylk. Experiment with the ingredients. Add dates, chocolate, honey, spices and more.
You’re too familiar with the symptoms of sinus infections. When your nasal passages become infected you can suffer from sinus pressure behind the eyes and cheeks, a runny and stuffy nose that last forever, headache, cough, halitosis and that nasty yellow or green mucus that keeps draining from your nose and even down the back of your throat (postnasal drip).
(Let's just all gag for a second here)
I really do feel for you if you suffer from sinus infections regularly.
It’s a drag.
But here’s the thing, you CAN in fact get rid of it naturally.
To be clear, I’m no medical professional, but you can be glad I’m not. I'm a Cert. Nutrition Specialist with over 16 years of experience. If I would be a doctor, I would have to write you a prescription for antibiotics or even prescribe you nasal surgery. How insane is that?
How does that main code of doctors honor go? DO NO HARM?
That’s right, do no harm. Now I’m not sure about you, but in my world, surgery is quite a big deal. In 1999, the Institute of Medicine published the famous “To Err Is Human” report, which stated that up to 98’000 people a year die because of mistakes in hospitals. Yes, the number was initially disputed, but it’s now widely accepted by doctors and hospital officials 2014 and quoted constantly in the media.
What we’re really dealing with here is mucus. Mucus is one of those skin-crawling bodily fluids nobody wants to talk about.
Actually, mucus is quite normal to have in the human body, but if your system is overproducing mucus anywhere, it’s a problem.
Now let’s ask us the question, what external influence could trigger my body to produce excess mucus?
