It’s a royal pain in the butt to read and hear how bad milk is for human health when all the research is done with commercial factory farm pasteurized milk.
I am not a milk drinker, but I have used raw milk for my steel cut oats and milk kefir consumed daily for over seven years in Mexico and the USA.
Because of myriad complicated stupid laws that ban raw milk sales in many American states (but not in Mexico) sometimes I had to go directly to raw milk dairy farms or use “outlaw” couriers who transport it from farms to homes.
Harder to find in the USA is raw goat milk. But it’s even better than cow milk.
Lyme Disease Sufferer Used Raw Milk to Cure Herself
This is not a Lyme disease healing recommendation. Lymies resent anyone’s bringing up a possible cure. They seem to insist on clamoring for more antibiotics, the pharmaceutical variety, which do more harm than good in the long run or maybe shorter.
The point of this story is to illustrate the superiority of raw milk to commercially produced pasteurized milk, and how raw milk and kefir made from raw milk can improve health or even heal. It is not a recommendation for Lyme sufferers or anyone else to use organic raw milk.
But a few years ago, one Lyme disease sufferer took an extremely unusual approach that very few would even consider.
The Healthy Home Economist, a site that goes well beyond public school education of the same subject matter, used only the first name of the person for “Melanie’s story”. Perhaps it was done to protect her raw milk source from being raided!
After years as an active housewife and busy mom, Melanie came down with intense joint pains, weakness, and acute sensitivity to sounds and lighting. The stuff of nephropathy that can be at least partially attributed to excess pharmaceutical antibiotics.
As her condition worsened and other symptoms plagued her, she was diagnosed with Lyme disease. Melanie was so debilitated that she was considered too weak for medical intervention. So she went on her quest for other solutions.
For a couple of years, she had tried several dietary and supplemental options that she had researched. But she continued losing weight and had very low energy.
Then she came upon milk fasting information from the Mayo Foundation of the early 20th Century before it had been taken over by the medical mafia to become Big Pharma’s drug dealer in Minnesota now known a the Mayo Clinic.
One of those documents, by J. R. Crewe, MD in January 1929, has been discovered, edited, and published by the Weston A. Price Foundation and the website realmilk.com.
It’s fascinating to read this and realize the milk used then was farm fresh raw milk to create an effective treatment for tuberculosis and other ailments by offering intense detoxification and nourishment.
Melonie found a farm close by that would sell her raw milk produced organically in large quantities. She fasted for 90 days on raw milk and homemade raw milk kefir only, usually letting it get to room temperature before drinking.

Upon her 90th day, after enduring one healing crisis after another, such as glandular pain and coughing up green phlegm during this difficult regimen, Melanie reported her recovery with renewed energy, skin color, and no more hair loss. The 25 pounds she had lost over the four-year illness had returned.
Melanie’s story, which you can read here, happens to be an extreme application of raw milk dieting for healing a difficult disease. There are a few more other raw milk fasting experiences reported than one would expect. Find them here.
Different states have different stupid laws. If you live in the United States, use this as your legal guide. Local Weston A. Price chapters that you can discover through their main website can help you as well.
My adult son drinks raw milk regularly instead of sodas and has for around eight years. His health is excellent and he’s a part-time yoga instructor and general “gym rat”. Now he’s also a private chef. He’s almost 100 percent vaccine free and healthy.
The woman in Mexico who had first shown me how to make milk kefir and gave me my first milk kefir “starter grains” had used it to successfully cure her extreme colitis without pharmaceuticals.
