The Truth About Saturated Fat and Raw Milk
You’ll want to sit down and listen to this weeks guest, Sally Fallon Morell, founder of the Weston A. Price Foundation and A Campaign for Real Milk, who talks about why butter, raw milk, and fermented foods should be a part of your diet. “There is more good bacteria in a tablespoon of sauerkraut than a whole bottle of probiotic pills” says Sally. She is also a #1 Best selling author of the book Nourishing Broth as well as author and coauthor to titles such as: Nourishing Traditions, The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby and Child Care, Eat Fat Lose Fat.
Ia Fat Connected to Cholesterol?
Sally discusses how there is NO correlation between the amount of fat in the diet and the levels of cholesterol in your blood! She also explains that while there is a only weak relationship with high cholesterol and heart disease, there is a very strong relationship with low cholesterol and many other health issues including but not limited to cancer, low sex hormones, suicide, brain diseases, and strokes!

Digesting Milk and Grains
We have trouble digesting grains due to gut imbalances, introducing grains too early to children, and improper preparation of the grains. However, lacto-fermented foods support the good bacteria in your gut.
Raw milk contains nutrients that build the immune system, gut wall and contains enzymes that help you absorb the minerals in it. In contrast, pasteurized milk creates allergies and is associated, eczema, diabetes, digestive disorders, behavior problems.
