Have you experienced any non-GI symptoms from Dairy?

Please share your story.

Was it from milk/cheese, or cream/butter too?

Thanks,

Mike

@CaveMan_Mike, i'm pretty sure those are the symptoms that Bukowski gets when from 'doing' dairy.

but i'm guessing your question was more after negative (not positive) symptoms...

Indeed. While I do sympathize with those who are lactose intolerant it is certainly very far from universal.

Agree. Milk is not bad/good, it's a very individual thing. I tolerate it well, as long as I dont make it form the basis of my diet.

Its called lactose persistence. Dairy isn't the boogey-man many people make it out to be. If you tolerate it you tolerate it.

I drink about a half a gallon of kefir a day. 'Kefir' is literally translated as "good feeling."

I'm guessing you feel: "Happiness. Feeling of calm. Good sleep." when you are NOT taking dairy :-)

How 'bout with butter or cream? It seems like cream has such little protein, that if it's the protein that's the problem, how could it be: there's so little in it?

I did a whole 30 and when I added back whey powder after I found I got moderately severe headaches. The odd thing was I don't think I had headaches. BEFORE! So I'm eliminating whey powder (not really that great for me anyway, just convenient sometimes), and I'll try it again later to see if that's really a trigger.

I get seriously mucus-y. I can tell whenever I've had dairy - I'm always clearing my throat and am all bunged up. My nose blocks too if I've had a lot.

I rememer at school wondering why, whenever we did the class register, every time I tried to say 'here' this horrible frog-in-the-throat gargly rasp came out instead. Milk and cereal for breafast :(

It triggers skin problems for me. A few hives with itching and definite lingering keratosis pilaris. My dermatologist does not think it's a conventional allergic reaction that I have however but either similar to how dairy can trigger eczema or the iodine content in it (conventional mostly) maybe.

I get all kinds of bad symptoms from bad dairy. Overly processed or super-heated dairy not only gives me GI distress but a terrible brain fog that can last for most of a day. I sometimes get a sense of soggy/weak muscle from it. The stuff seems so bad I have to question whether it's just a placebo or maybe a psychosomatic response to the GI distress itself.

I get none of these effects from quality, especially fermented, dairy. I think kefir, butter, and aged cheeses are some of the best foods out there. Some may need to exercise moderation. I must get 20% or more of my daily calories from pure butter. I rarely drink plain milk any more. The raw stuff is too expensive for me.

Exhaustion....The kind that doesn't go away with rest. I'm ok with ghee, though.

regular crappy cheese and milk give me allergy symptoms like runny nose, lots of mucus in my throat, and itchy eyes. i don't get the same symptoms from grass fed dairy.
