I read on yahoo answers that raw milk and butter is supposed to really help in healing a messed up digestive tract.

I also read that if you soak nuts atleast 8 hours before eating them then they will be easy to digest and wont upset the stomach.

Are both of these true?

My enterolab said i wasnt positive for casein but dairy makes me feel sick so do you know if raw milk would do the same?

THANKS

I really can't answer your question, but when I was growing up we had our own dairy cow. I drank raw milk, ate homemade butter, and icecream all the time. I don't recall having any problems at that time. It is supposed to be better for you because it has more of the good bacteria in it and pasturized does not. Making butter was cool. I used my grandmothers old butter churn and wooden butter bowl/paddle to wash it.

I have no idea if its better for your digestion or not, but I would be concerned about drinking unpasturized milk. My father grew up on it and developed Undalent Fever. He lost tons of weight--became nearly all bones---and was really, really sick for quite some time. It's caused from untreated dairy. I would use extreme caution and research before trying what you are talking about.

While I do agree you do need to do your research, as far as our own cow we made sure she had quality food, plenty of water, and was able to graze freeley. We always put her health first and had her vet checked. We made sure she had her necessary vaccinations (something that can pass to people, I don't recall) and we never had any problem or got sick. If for any reason she would act ill we would not drink the milk until the vet cleared her. Of course we handled everything as sanitary as possible also. If you buy raw milk check with the dairy farmer and ask questions about the health status of the cows and check on the sanitation. I just wish I could have my own cow now. I miss Molly! :)

Don't be so quick to pass on the raw milk. If it comes from a certified dairy, it probably has less bacteria and less chance to make you sick than regular pasteurized milk. You want to avoid raw milk from a source that isn't inspected regularly. That's where people get sick.

As for soaking nuts - it's pretty easy. I put mine in a bowl of water with a bit of salt before I go to work in the morning. After dinner, I drain them and spread them on a cookie sheet covered with a clean kitchen towel and then dry them in the oven. You should dry them at 150 or lower. I leave the oven on until bedtime and then just leave the light on all night. In the morning they are crispy and delicious. They are easier to digest.

i've found several raw/vegan restaurants that I love, not because I am a vegan (I love meat) but because almost everything on the menu is gluten-free, and I don't ahve to ask a million questions. The chef told me that most nuts have phylates (not sure if I am spelling that right) and that's what makes nuts hard to digest. Soaking removes the pyhlates and makes them easier on the tummy, yummy too!
