Milk Drinking

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Just wondering, I used to drink a tonne of normal (full fat or semi skimmed cows milk when I was younger (I'm 18 now so I'm talking up to the age of around 121/12). I used to drink a few pints of milk a day. Anyway, my stomach aches got to the points where they were so bad that I have had to give uP a lot of food. I can no longer drunk cows milk as dairy really irritates my stomach. However, the last few months I have been drinking coconut milk. In my local Tesco's there is a really good free from range which has a fridge section (milk, cheese, yoghurt etc). I have been drinking the coconut milk from there ( the gluten, wheat, egg and dairy free coconut milk). I am able to drink that by the gallon and not have any effects. However I drink a small glass of normal milk and I have a VIP ticket to the bathroom. Does anybody else have this effect? Also, any ideas why the cows milk really irritates me? I am a very bad coeliac meaning it affects me tremendously badly so could there be a link between what the cows eat? Also, I have a sought problem with eggs? Could this also be related to what the chickens eat? Any info and ideas are very much appreciated.

Thanks,

Tash

Lactose intolerance is quite common in adults.  Many cannot process the lactose in the milk.  Celiac can effect that ability, too.  When the intestines are damaged with untreated Celiac - the part damaged is the part that makes the lactase that helps digest the lactose in the milk.  Onec the gut has healed, many, but not all, Celiacs can digest lactose again.

Once gluten rips up your gut, it's not uncommon to be unable to digest dairy. I recovered ability to tolerate (somewhat) dairy after being off gluten more than 5 years. But face it, lactose and caseins are problematic for human digestion. Many feel that nobody should use dairy. These days, almost all the dairy I use is high-quality fermented (kefir, buttermilk), with a small amount of half+half in tea or coffee.
