The most famous physician of all time, Hippocrates, wrote: let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food.

First, let’s talk about the process of pasteurization and why taking raw milk and putting it through the pasteurization process actually impacts the benefits of milk. This process actually destroys enzymes, reduces the vitamin content of the milk and even destroys the beneficial bacteria.  This process also contributes to allergies and tooth decay among a slew of other ailments. 

In 1929 John E. Crewe, M.D., the founder of the Mayo Clinic, wrote an article titles “Raw Milk Cures Many Diseases.” In this article, he speaks about the benefits of raw milk and how it can assist in many chronic diseases including asthma, kidney disease, obesity, poor digestion, heart disease, colitis just to name a few on his list.
