Beneficial microbes improve health in many terrains. Colonisation resistance is a completely different way of thinking. When the information is applied, it is both pioneering and revolutionary.
Peg is a senior medical microbiologist and risk analyst who takes an interest in the raw milk movement. She has started her own blog with interesting information that will appeal to a varied audience, not just scientists.
Prohibition-based policies around raw milk - which focus solely on minimising risk - are missing the critical point of raw milk's unique health benefits, at a time when they are desperately needed. We are “bacteriosapiens”. It is our nature.
Both animals and people need a good diet to build strong resistance to disease and bacterial infections. For ruminants it is a nutrient-dense forage, and for humans it is a diet containing diverse living foods.
Mark explained how mankind has been busy destroying our earth’s macro-biome, and how it is now affecting our inner biome. For mankind to thrive, we need bacteria.
Research has found a probiotic bacteria that can destroy this superbug. Researchers discovered that a probiotic bacteria called Bacillus can fight and effectively eliminate Staphylococcus aureus.
Churchtown Dairy, a Hudson, upstate NY biodynamic farm became the 17th to be listed with the Raw Milk Institute last month.
80% of immunity lies in the gut. Many consumers have ideas about probiotics that are simply not stacking up to science. Biology should not be ignored when it comes to modern diseases.
Australians are coming to the realisation that our health is in crisis, because agriculture is in crisis. Food is medicine.
Research shows we need an abundance of beneficial, diverse species microbes to crowd out harmful ones. It is time authorities look at the reasons why raw drinking milk should be available in Australia.
Raw milk consumption in the UK has increased a lot in the past year according to a survey. Most said they drink it because they believed in the health benefits. Some have a huge problem with this.
A sixth person has died from listeriosis linked to contaminated rockmelon and a Victorian woman had a miscarriage linked to the outbreak. The nationwide total of people affected remains at 19.
Look at images synonymous with the Zombie Apocalypse. The earth is stripped of an eco-system. The inhabitants are deprived of a healthy microbiome; they are immune compromised.
In many farming communities it is accepted that raw milk is a beneficial food. Even research show that farmers and their children enjoy protection from asthma and allergies due to raw milk consumption.
Eczema is the most common skin disorder in the industrialised word. The book The Good Skin Solution gives you all the tools you need to heal your skin naturally with the help of the probiotic drink kefir.
Dr. Maya spent a lot of time delving into the scientific literature and found that being exposed to diverse microbes is what makes our guts, immune systems and our brains healthy.
Farming has been gravitating in different directions but the differences have never been so stark. Three systems farm for microbes but because of different inputs, values and expectations there are different outcomes.
This was a recent response written to a concerned doctor regarding raw milk consumption. It was written by Mark McAfee who is the CEO at Organic Pastures dairy in Fresno, California.
Science now show 100% grass-fed, organic milk is superior. Butterfat from pasture-raised cows is a major source of healthy nutrients like Omega-3, CLA and fat soluble vitamins.
Food safety and health agencies warn the immune compromised against raw milk, but pathogens are all over our food system. Scientists say we need beneficial microbes but where can we get them?
