Beware of Dairy and Soy Products
If you have an autoimmune disease, such as myasthenia gravis, beware of dairy and soy products because they may adversely affect your already weak and vulnerable immune system.
Today’s milk is no more than a chemical, biological, and bacterial cocktail.
Instead of the old-fashioned fresh green grass feeding and traditional methods of breeding, modern feeding methods of cows use high-protein, soy-based feeds, and high-technology breeding to produce cows with abnormally large pituitary glands so that they can artificially produce much more milk. Just think about that!
Today, an average cow may produce 30,000 to 40,000 pounds of milk per year, as opposed to the 2,000 pounds produced by its counterpart half a century ago. Such discrepancy may be due to drugs, antibiotics, hormones, forced feeding plans, and specialized breeding. In 1990, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a genetically engineered hormone injected into dairy cows to make them produce more milk. However, the Canadian government and scientists challenged the safety of this hormone.
Cow’s milk is no longer pure as it was before. Just think about what is in your milk.
Dairy products may play a major role in the development of allergies, asthma, insomnia, and migraine headaches. At least 50 percent of all children in the
are allergic to cow's milk, and many
remain undiagnosed. Dairy products are the leading cause of food allergy,
manifested in diarrhea, constipation, and chronic fatigue, although they may
not be one of the causes of autoimmune disease. United States
Milk also contains powerful growth hormones, which may play a major role in human breast cancer. Milk is a hormonal delivery system. If you believe that breast-feeding mothers deliver substances to their infants, then you should understand that milk is a hormonal delivery system, too.
Today, milk is homogenized, which means the fat molecules in milk are evenly distributed within the liquid milk such that there is no visible cream separation in the milk. By artificially changing nature’s natural mechanism, milk proteins are not broken down, and are directly absorbed into your bloodstream without adequate digestion. Undigested proteins may account for increased rates of cancers and heart disease. This may explain why there is such low incidence of breast cancer in rural
there is low consumption of dairy products. China
To make matters worse, synthetic vitamin D is often fortified and added to homogenized milk to replace the natural vitamin D complex displaced during the process of homogenization.
Synthetic vitamin D is toxic to your liver. Do not believe that your milk “fortified” with vitamin D is a better health food. No, it is not! Some good stuff has been taken out of your milk and is replaced by something not as good. For this reason, milk may not be a health food for healthy eating for everyone.
Normal milk may be bad enough as it is. On top of that, if milk is pasteurized (heated to kill bacteria in milk), it is being changed into something other than milk. When milk is pasteurized, much of its enzymes are destroyed in the process. Without enzymes, milk protein is difficult to digest, thereby unduly stressing your pancreas, which may make you more prone to diabetes later in life.
To protect your immune system, stay away from dairy products as much as possible.
The soybean known today is not the same plant traditionally grown in
. Prior to its introduction
into the China United States, this 20th century version of
soybean was genetically
manipulated in Europe in the 1950s to increase its yield for
industrial purposes. In fact, soybean was listed in the 1913 U.S. Department of
Agriculture (USDA) handbook not as a food but as an industrial product.
Soy may not be the health food for healthy eating that the food industry claims for the following reasons:
Soy has high concentrations of certain chemicals that combine with essential minerals to deposit insoluble salts difficult for your kidneys to eliminate.
Soy may adversely affect enzymes and hormones production in your body.
Soy protein is difficult for your digestion. Soybean is a seed. Like all other seeds, soybean is rich in enzyme inhibitors (anti-digestive) to protect it from the environment.
Soybean did not serve as a food until about 3,000 years ago when the ancient Chinese introduced the art of fermentation, neutralizing enzyme inhibitors and predigesting soybean with several fungus enzymes.
The Chinese did not eat unfermented soybean as they did other legumes such as lentils because soybean contains large quantities of natural toxins.
Only after the Chinese mastered the principle of pre-digesting soybean with natural substances to enhance its nutritional value during the Chou Dynasty (1134-246 B.C.) was soybean designated as one of the five sacred grains along with barley, wheat, millet, and rice for healthy eating.
Unfortunately, advances in technology, with the use of chemicals such as emulsifiers, flavorings, preservatives, and synthetic nutrients, have turned soybean into multiple soy products, while for centuries the Chinese have been consuming soy and its products only as a small po There are indeed many ways to avoid sugar in your cooking and diet. Wherever possible, do not include it to boost your immune system.
The bottom line: Consume soy products, such as soymilk and tofu, only moderately, if you must. Soy products are not good for the immune system.
To heal your autoimmune disease, focus on a healthy immune system through regular detoxification, diet, and mental relaxation.
Remember, medications are toxic substances; they may suppress your disease symptoms, but they never cure your autoimmune disease. Don’t add insult to injury!
