Symptoms that aggravate fibromyalgia patients are:
- sensitivity to dairy products
- food allergies
- skin sensitivities
George Malkmus, a specialist in healing with diet, says that FM may be caused by trauma or viral infections, but the stage for succumbing to FM is set before hand in the intestinal tract. Malkmus believes that our leaky gut may be the one primary defect leading to fibromyalgia! He has watched people overcome FM for decades, by changing their diet.
So, what causes leaky gut syndrome? Ready? Dairy product consumption by lactose intolerance individuals can make the intestine porous or leaky. Intolerance to dairy is rampant in America.
Milk in America
I see fields along the road when we take trips. A few spotted cows and little ones scattered upon a green hillside. Just beautiful! We have a very clean dairy cow operation in our town. That’s how this one looks. Very pristine.
Haven’t we all seen the milk ads with movie stars in white mustaches? Who is it that wants us to drink up the milk? If you have fibromyalgia symptoms will occur when you drink milk. And we go on thinking we are lactose intolerant. Lactose is digested in the stomach by an enzyme called lactase. Sometimes, we don’t have enough of that enzyme, or we have taken a round of antibiotics. Our medications we take for FM can cause this kind of deficiency.
I never knew that cows naturally live about 20 years. But in the largest dairy facilities, the cows are emaciated by the time they become 3 years old. To maintain high milk output, the cows are artificial inseminated to give birth as often as possible. Weak and sore, with foot disease from standing in one spot her whole miserable life. Standing there exhausted by constant lactation and frequent disease.
After she gives birth, the calf is taken away from her. The boy calves go to auction with umbilical cord still attached, too weak to stand and many die before they reach auction. This is the VEAL auction. The calves are kept in carts, so they can’t stand. Too much movement toughens the meat. By about sixteen weeks they are slaughtered. This abuse begins as young as one day old.
This is written above so you can be enlightened and make a better choice about your own body. Please know that this is hard for me, writing and thinking about this again. This is one of my Causes. Please do not purchase veal. Please remove the demand so there will be no reason to supply. Don’t demand the killing of baby calves. I’ve seen footage of a mother cow running beside the wheel barrow that contained her new calf, as it was been wheeled to another place. The animals know what’s right, sometimes better the man does!
Q: Do the cows roam on green fields? If they conceive, will they keep their calf?
A: Cows by the thousands are confined to filthy, crowded stalls and feedlots, dry and barren. The calves are taken away.
