Are you the "Healthy" one in your group of friends or family. Do you eat all the right stuff, religiously take every supplement that is recommended by Dr. Oz, exercise, consume whole grains and beans, veggies and stay away from junk food etc? Are you almost neurotic about it?

Ok, that's me, I can't say I am always vigilant, we can all fall into the trap of the double chocolate birthday cake now and then, but in general, I work fairly hard at doing what I believe to be the right thing when it comes to what I eat without driving every waiter or companion crazy.
Salad has been my staple when in doubt on any occasion.

Some time ago, I found that I chipped my front tooth and have been on a search for resolution every since. In my journey an observation arose. Over the years I have been posed the question from those "health nuts" which is...

I do everything right, I eat right, I exercise, I don't drink or smoke, I do everything right, so why am I having this issue.

Most of them I can stereo-type in to one category... women who are almost too "thin". I see it a lot in my practice. It is easy to notice that young girls are too thin these days which seems to be the socially accepted "norm", no matter how unhealthy it is. But I am talking about women from around 30 and up. They seem to eat like birds, take a lot of nutrition supplements, exercise too much and feel they need to control every aspect of their diet and their family or friends diets. The never feel like they are relaxed and it is hard to relax around them because they seem to just make every situation stressful however hard they try not to. And they try really hard not to be or create stress, it seems they can't help themselves.

I pretty much fit that description also and have had to learn to keep my mouth shut when it comes to health in a casual conversation. I am quite passionate about health and nutrition, mostly because it is my profession, but I believe I have always been interested in the subject.

When I run across a patient that I find to be as I have described, I have often wondered: Why are they coming to see me, they are doing everything right?

I have found most of their issues are related to mineral deficiencies, which when supplemented, seems to help, but I had always believed there was some element that I was missing and recently I have pondered whether I have discovered what it is.

In my journey to find if I could "regrow" my chipped tooth, I came across a fascinating book that made me rethink certain foods that I had long since removed from my diet for one reason or another. Now, I am reintroducing them with a twist and finding some positive results.

As a kid and young adult, I was a big milk drinker. In my 20's I would consume about 1/2 gal of milk per day. I loved milk. When all my friends were eating pizza with a cola, I was eating it with milk. It seemed like the only thing that would settle my stomach (which was almost always full of "bubbles") Later, when I was informed that milk was probably the thing that was creating the problem, as hard as it was, I quit all milk products and low and behold, the problem disappeared, along with several other issues that I had since childhood.

From what I understand, milk is over-process in our society and maybe why it seems to "clog" up the body. As a child I remember the milk man delivering fresh milk to our door every morning. It would come with about an inch of cream on the top which would have to be mixed in (kind of a home homogenization process, HA).

Some people say that the molecules of cow's milk are too large to be utilized by the human body and that even calves do not take the cow's milk after they are grown. Most understand that goats milk is structured more similar to human milk than cow's milk... and generally the FDA does advise against consuming raw milk.

Either way, I did a little experiment and the results may or may not have something to do with the missing element. I began to drink raw cow's milk. Over the period of a month, I saw the tiny vertical lines around lips disappear. My eyebrows became thicker (for years, it seemed to me they were getting thinner and thinner, requiring more brow liner to fill them in). My eyelashes filled in. I had always had skimpy eyelashes, so imagine my surprise, when I looked into the mirror and decided I did not need eyeliner! My deltoid muscle became larger and defined. (It is commonly know that the deltoid muscle is the last to shrink during starvation - now think of all those skinny girls with almost nonexistent deltoid muscles!) My skin became more plump...as if I has a collagen injection. As far as the milk goes, I was only drinking about 4-6 oz a day.  I admit, I was also eating raw cheese, raw butter and some raw sour cream throughout and this may have added to the effect.

I have since been told by my medical doctor not to consume milk, stating that it is not good for me. This is kind of the standard response. She says the residual effect are not worth it but I have to say, I was loving the results when I was drinking milk....

Any thoughts?

I would like to know if anyone else has noticed anything from drinking goat's milk?
