Milk Allergy, Sensitivity and Intolerance
Years ago soon after I founded a not-for-profit holistic health center (i.e., The GoTaCh Center for Health) in Frederick, Maryland, at a meeting of the Board of Directors, I was castigated by one of the directors, a lawyer, as having done a very foolish thing, and that this stupid thing would eventually result in the downfall of our Center. In a way, he was correct for eventually what I had done resulted in untoward dire and negative consequences which led to our losing one of our best programs, the children?s camps designed to treat naturally children suffering from ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disease) and related disorders. What did I do? I wrote a Letter-To-The-Editor of our local newspaper entitled: ?Drinking Milk May Be Hazardous to Your Health.? What made writing this letter so stupid and irresponsible was the fact that Frederick, Maryland, was a dairy county, and, at that time, probably the third largest milk producing county in the entire United States, exceeded only by perhaps several counties in Wisconsin. The local Board of Appeals with its three members directly involved in the dairy industry of our county eventually voted down our request to establish a camp for children wherein we were able to treat successfully children suffering from hyperactivity, attention deficit syndrome, and other quasi behavioral problems. We were able to take these children completely off their Ritalin and Dexedrine by, among other things, applying the principles of nutrition and diet, one of these being completely eliminating milk and milk products from their diets. The purpose of this treatise is to revisit this entire question. Perhaps I can feel safer now because in our county, which is still very heavily involved in milk production, the major industry is now tourism followed by the soft computer related industries. And since I also own a 4-Star Italian Restaurant, I can give the milk industry their due by selling their products!
