Milk/Casein


Casein or caseinate is found in cow’s milk, goat milk and human milk. My son has a cerebral allergy to milk. He used to tantrum from the time he got up to the time he went to bed. Melt down after melt down all day long. Talk about exhausting!

Once taken off the milk, tantrums were down to 1 every 3 days, after about a week, once a week. It was a miracle. After about 3 months there were hardly any tantrums to speak of. 

Milk, for me was different. It clogs my sinus, coats my throat and lungs and it’s hard to breathe. Lots of foods contain casein. It hides in all kinds of food. Here are some common forms:
