Miracle cure for eczema? Goat milk
Is goat milk a miracle cure for eczema?
I've seen the evidence and it was dramatic. I can't in all honesty say that goat milk is a miracle cure for everyone with eczema, and it's something I've never suffered from but I've seen it work and I want to share the story with you.
It might easily work for you or for a loved one who suffers from awful, ugly eczema.
This happened many years ago when I ran a health food store. I wasn't an expert on alternative remedies by any means but I read every word I could about the items I stocked so that I could give my customers useful advice. I read magazines, periodicals and had a host of reference books.
One summer day a young man came into the store wearing a sleeveless t-shirt. I won't go into details about the state of his arms but if you've seen or had - very bad eczema, then you can imagine what they were like. It was horrible to look at and he was obviously suffering. Plus there was the embarrassment of revealing his terrible skin.
Like many of my health food shop clients, he had come to me out of desperation. He'd seen many doctors and specialists to no avail.
Eventually he had been led to try out the idea of alternative treatments and, although I could tell he was skeptical, he asked my advice. Coincidentally, I had read an article about the treatment of eczema that very morning.
An eczema cure
I strongly recommend you try this
Thanks to the article I'd read (what a coincidence that was!) I was able to tell him that although I'd never seen any results myself, I'd read great things about using goat milk as a treatment. I showed him the article I'd read and I could see that he was thinking "it probably won't work but I'll give it a try".
BUT I DON'T LIKE IT!
His main concern was that he simply didn't like the taste, he said. This may or may not be true - I know many people who claim not to like a certain food even though they've never tried it. I suggested that he flavored it with chocolate or some other syrup or flavor he enjoyed.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE UP COW'S MILK
This was another concern he had - he couldn't imagine having it on his breakfast muesli. The article had said that it wasn't even necessary to give up cow's milk - just drink a pint of goat milk a day. Do note though that it some cases, particularly in children, this skin condition is caused by an allergy to cow's milk, in which case, it should be cut from the diet, of course.
You can learn more about healing your skin naturally using this books. Diet-based cures are especially useful for children. Don't take medicines or use commercially-produced creams until you've tried the natural methods.
What was the result?
One week later
I sold the milk in long-life cartons - they had a shelf life of several months and came in packs of eight. I think that my customer was still pretty skeptical but nevertheless he bought a pack of eight pints. I told him that I'd love to hear from him to see what happened.
A MIRACLE RESULT
One week later, a young man walked into the health food store. It was the same guy but this time, he wasn't wearing a sleeveless t-shirt, he was wearing a regular long-sleeved shirt. 'Let me show you something' he said.
BABY SOFT CLEAR SKIN
I was amazed. Even though the article I'd read was from a very reputable source and I'd recommended that treatment with confidence, I was still astonished. One week ago the skin on his arms hadn't simply been unsightly, it had actually been bleeding in many places. Now, after just one week, the skin on his arms was perfect. Truly. Perfect. There was no sign of any skin problems at all.
Will this work for everyone?
I was delighted with the results - it really was like a miracle after just one week - and so I continued to recommend it to anyone who asked my advice about treating this condition. I saw some great results but nothing as miraculous as the first. I can't say that it will work for absolutely every sufferer because not all customers would return to the store to show me the results but I saw enough incredible situations that made me believe, like my original customer, that it is well worth trying. It isn't an expensive at all and can - in my opinion - perform miracles. I've seen it with my own eyes.
If you want to add flavor to your milk, try these ideas. There are many commercial syrups and flavors you can use but these are fun.
- Add a little brandy with a pinch of ground cinnamon and the same of cardamom, nutmeg and ground cloves. Add honey to tastes and whiz in the blender. This is also lovely served warm on a chilly day.
- Blend it with a banana and honey to make a delicious drink. It's lovely to do this with fresh strawberries too. Experiment with different fruits!
- Warm the milk - add a little honey if you like - then grate your favorite chocolate on top. This will melt into the milk - yum. Or use a chocolate flake (below).
- Use coffee essence (see below). My mum used to love this. Use your coffee essence to make a milky coffee drink or blend it cold with the coffee flavoring and a couple of ice cubes and blend to make a delicious iced coffee drink.
- Blend it with your favorite ice cream for a cool refreshing drink. There are so many wonderful varieties available - you can have a great time experimenting with this.
- Make my favorite - Ovaltine! It's available in the traditional way and there's also a rich chocolate version now too.
- Another favorite - blend in a little Bailey's Irish Cream (or similar) and a scoop of chocolate ice cream.
Another success story
I have known several people who have worked at the BBC in London and all have stressed that, if you want news that is accurate and double-checked, the BBC is the best source. It's interesting to see that the BBC website has several reports of goat milk being used as a miracle cure for eczema. This is just one comment from the site.
Ideas to flavor your milk
I don't like cow's milk so therefore goat milk doesn't taste particularly good to me although to my untrained palate, they taste much the same. But if you're like my customer, and would like to flavor your milk, these are great ideas.
